I like Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin.
I am not sure I could make myself vote for anyone else.
Rand Pauls immigration speech[but hes not in favor of amnesty, snicker, definition of is is]
03.19.13 | Hon Sen Rand Paul (KY)

...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.
Lets start that conversation by acknowledging we arent 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.
...by softening its edge on some volatile social issues and altering its image as the party always seemingly "eager to go to war... We do need to expand the party and grow the party and that does mean that we don't always all agree on every issue" ... the party needs to become more welcoming to individuals who disagree with basic Republican doctrine on emotional social issues such as gay marriage... "We're going to have to be a little hands off on some of these issues ... and get people into the party," Paul said.
Rand Slams Congress for Funding Egypt’s Generals:

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 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.
If neither of them run I could get behind Perry or Walker, just don’t think I could get behind Paul, or far worse the GOPe candidates of fat boy and Shrub 2.
