I’ve always been fascinated with that question. Aside from a few requirements (dignitary, law enforcement, CiC), the President doesn’t DO much...let alone LEAD. If not as a role model, what else does he LEAD?

IMHO, what we need, are more ‘regular’ people; these ‘higher educated’/Ivy Leaguers can’t seem to read/comprehend the Constitution that gives them their authority.

When was the last time anyone has seen/heard/read the President whip out his pocket Constitution, roll through the bill in from of him and declare “Nope, don’t see the authority. VETO”. Hell, is was Bush who pushed bills through stating “*I* don’t believe it, but I’ll get the S.C. figure it out”? WHat kind of ‘leader’ is THAT?

utter crap the GOP never talks about social issues hardly and it’s about time they do because cowards and RINO’s have only helped to pass rule 26 from the communist rules of 1963.

No conservative would ever want the homosexual, agenda or giving morning after pill to little girls or even voting for amnesty or even letting little girls and boys take drugs.

Frigging liberaltarians can go and get their own platform and nomination process but us conservatives won;t bother voting for a liberal on social issues and yes family matters

Christie would fit right in (one of the few places he’d fit into)


Rubio would as well. And I think the media will try to shove another RINO down our throat.

If R. Paul doesn’t get serious about social conservative positions, no way. And that includes borders and amnesty.

I’m in for Paul. Maybe not my first choice, but the most serious candidate for actually shrinking the size of government.

So his stance on illegals is fine with you?

Yes, Paul needs to back off the amnesty talk real quick if he wants any conservative support.

Yeah, he should just deceive the voters and, then, reveal his true agenda after he is elected.

Rand’s curly hair makes him look like a dentist which I think he is.

Actually, he's an ophthalmologist.

Unfortunately, he's also a hypocrite when it comes to government spending, so long as that spending goes to doctors. Government cash for me, but not for thee. Can't cut Medicare payments to doctors, oh no. How would Rand survive? He said "physicians should be allowed to make a comfortable living", which apparently means on the taxpayers' dime.

Plus there's the stink of the old man. I don't hold the son responsible for the positions of his father, provided he's willing to publicly repudiate them. Unless and until he does, then we have to presume Rand is Ron II.

Rand is too soft on the immigration issue for my tastes. Plus, I dislike how he rants against the Amoeba’s nominees, then votes for them. Sometimes, I don’t get the man. He is smart and likeable, however. Bob

All you need do is to remember from whose loins he came. His sire is crazier than the proverbial $h!thou$e rat. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Give “Rand-y” 25 years and he’ll be barking mad, just like his old man./JMO

I believe that that is his natural hair. I think that Rand would look better in a shorer haircut..to tone down the overly messy look of too many curls. And he needs guidance on his choice of suit colors. In general, he needs guidance and a handler for appearances sake. Go, Rand, Go!

“I’m standing with Rand. Do you want a Bush?”

Do I want a Bush? No, not really. But I at least want an electable candidate. One that has an actual chance of winning a Presidential election. That ABSOLUTELY does NOT include Rand or his infamous father. Most CONSERVATIVES would laugh out loud at the thought of either being elected to this nations highest office. BTW, the term “CONSERVATIVE” does NOT apply to the famous Doctor or his ilk.

Geez, it is like going back in time. These PaulBots just never stop. But they are very misguided. Both Ron & Rand have about as much chance of becoming POTUS as I do. If a vote were held today, just on Freerepublic, could either be elected? Not a chance. I would predict each might get around 5% of the vote. And that is just on FR. What do you suppose the result will be in a real national election??

It just never ends with these people. If you yell louder, and more often, you voice must somehow carry more weight. You might be able to intimidate limp wristed liberals (of which I classify BOTH Pauls) with your tactics, but not real Conservatives.

Ron Paul was an absolute embarrassment during the last election cycle. I expect no less from his offsping this time either. He will get around 5% of the LIBERAL/LIBERTARIAN vote and then claim some sort of moral victory.

How these people are elected to a position higher than Dog Catcher is the real mystery.

Rand Paul’s immigration speech
03.19.13 | Hon Sen Rand Paul (KY)
Posted on 03/19/2013 7:04:07 AM PDT by Perdogg


...The Republican Party must embrace more legal immigration.

Unfortunately, like many of the major debates in Washington, immigration has become a stalemate-where both sides are imprisoned by their own rhetoric or attachment to sacred cows that prevent the possibility of a balanced solution.

Immigration Reform will not occur until Conservative Republicans, like myself, become part of the solution. I am here today to begin that conversation.

Let’s start that conversation by acknowledging we aren’t going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants.

If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you...

This is where prudence, compassion and thrift all point us toward the same goal: bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society.

Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors.
[but he’s not in favor of amnesty, snicker, definition of is is]

Rand Slams Congress for Funding Egypt’s Generals:
‘How Does Your Conscience Feel Now?’

Sen. Rand Paul is hammering his fellow senators for keeping billions in financial aid flowing to Egypt’s military — even as Cairo’s security forces massacre anti-government activists.

[by “anti-government activists” is meant church-burning jihadists]

I'd vote for him if he won, but he's in the middle of the pack for me. He's not reliably conservative, and then there's that sticky problem of his genetics.......

I'd vote for Cruz, (Palin if she ran in lieu of Cruz), Walker, Perry, or even Jindal before him.

Our problem will be having too many conservatives in the race, plus a few wild cards like Paul bunching things up, splitting our votes while the "moderate" (Jeb or Christie this time) walks through with less than a third of the GOP vote.

We would be wise to solidify behind ONE conservative candidate, Cruz if he runs, then figure out how to convince Jeb, Christie, Ryan, and Paul to give serious runs at the same time.
