Of course he doesn’t. O once said that he doesn’t think that anyone should own a gun.

Rubio could have beaten Obama. And he can beat whoever the left offers up. Question will be is he conservative enough to keep the base while flipping the Hispanic vote. I don’t know the answer to that.

Kinda late, but thanks for saying it Marco. Now what about what you believe about the border and illegals? Think they have an Amendment to allow them to be here?

Obama believes that Arabs have the right to overthrow an opressive government, as in the Arab spring, and even assists them. But he does not believe that Americans have the same right. The second amendment is nothing but a recognition by the government of the people’s right to repel tyranny. And he will destroy that right if he can.

Dear Leader made that clear- the second means that people can’t enjoy life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, it prevents people enjoying the right to assemble, and other horrors.

He outlined his feelings quite graphically.

Marco Rubio doesn’t have the guts to admit he doesn’t believe in enforcing immigration laws.

Marco Rubio doesn’t have the guts to admit he doesn’t believe in enforcing immigration laws.

I've seen more and more comments like these as of late and they scare the crap out of me. It's this kind of "eat your own" mentality that gave us Romney for a candidate. I certainly don't agree with Rubio on everything, passionately disagree on some things, but if we don't start trying to find reasons to stand together instead of tearing each other apart we're going to lose and lose big.

It doesn’t matter. Mr. Soetoro’s actions speak louder than his words. But, his words clued us in a long tme ago that he wanted to “fundamentally change America”, and that the Constitution is a ‘charter of negative liberties’. All the signs were there in 2008, so why is anyone surprised that he is creating the Progessive/Marxist/Central-Planning Utopia?

If we elected Rubio we would admit that a person not a natural born citizen can legally be President.

Not only that his stance on amnesty sucks.

It isn’t an eat your own mentality, it’s a fight for the Constitution.How can we argue that the Kenyan is ineligible and then elect our own candidate that is ineligble.

What made Romney our candidate was a pack of RINO’s, and they will still be there in 2016.
What we need is a new party.

Marco Rubio does not understand that it does’nt matter what the president believes in or not.

The Constitution, and this includes the 2nd Amendment, was written long before Hussein and Marco saw the light of day.

Basta! Abide by it or change it! Stop the BS unless you have something better to offer.

Why would brown Mexicans vote for a white Cuban?

Sure he’ll do better than Romney with Latinos, but he’ll still lose big to whoever the Dems nominate.

bingo. On O’Reilly he gave his idea for an immigration policy. Basically allowing non criminals to sign up for work visas and then after 5-7 yeaqrs they get in line for legal immigration. Nothing he mentioned about actually enforcing the border as it is now.

Well, we already know what happens when we let the RINOs run the show on the national level, and we do lose and lose big. So, if we nominate a RINO like Rubio, I expect the exact same thing to happen that happens every time we select a RINO. If you would like to avoid that, then let’s try nominating a conservative candidate this time around, eh?

Actually the idea we had Romney is the reason there is a backlash on RINO Republicans and the GOP-e. Wee need candidates with substance not backstabbers. Remember not so long ago FReepers were on the Chris Christie bandwagon? How did that work out, with his “conservative views”?

but would you put your trust in someone you’re not sure will stand together with conservatives in the end, and may just like the rest before him, sell themselves out for their own political gain and looking to get what the Democrats have and go for the Democrat/moderate vote while ignoring the conservatives?

If you think conservatism, the GOP and our country can survive amnesty of the tens of millions of illegals living here currently, you’re kidding yourself.

The people don’t support amnesty, but by letting it slide we’ve let slip in the risk, if not likelihood, that we’ve got a pro-amnesty House and Senate. More of a stink should have been made about this issue sooner.

The citizenship issue regarding Obama is whether HE is a citizen or not.
The issue regarding Rubio is the definition of NBC with respects to his father.
You can think that both of them are ineligible, but you cannot equate the two and have any cred.

His parents were not
American citizens when he was born.

Therefore he is not natural born, which requires two American parents.

He is a citizen, thus eligible to be a Senator.

Obama is not natural born either, but that is because no one wants to defend the Constitution.

It’s comments like those that totally ruin the meaning of the word RINO. I have some quibbles with Rubio to be sure, and he might agree with some RINO’s on some issues, but he’s not McCain, Graham, Snowe, etc. THOSE are RINOs.

Call him what you want, but if your defintion of RINO is simply anyone who disagrees with you, it’s not much of an effective word. You will let us know when Reagan or Jesus returns, and runs as a Republican.

Definitely not good, especially when you read the garbage they’re spewing. If anybody wants to confirm their worst suspicions about the right (”bunch of ignorant bigots”), they just have to read any thread where Rubio is mentioned. I actually don’t believe that a lot of these people really are conservatives; I never see them on other threads, and I suspect a lot of them are just trolls sent here to stir up dissension and ill feeling.

What Rubio said is absolutely the truth. The point of the Second Amendment is not to protect hunters, and everybody knows that; it’s to allow the citizens to keep arms to protect themselves against the government, and Obama clearly does not believe in that.

Zero probably agrees with his buddy Billy Ayres that about 10% of US citizens would need to be eliminated to achieve their goals (a communist USA). I strongly suspect that Zero believes the same thing. He surrounds himself with Mao-adoring Marxists. The gun owners stand in his way. Gun owners will register, then later turn in their guns at their own peril.

Marco Rubio doesn’t have the guts to call an illegal alien a criminal, just another RINO looking to sell his soul for tee time with the One, there is no second party in this country, only followers of themselves in search of more wealth and power, the constitution and the bill of rights can be interpreted anyway they see fit so long as they get themselves re-elected, traitors!

The Won knows that the bill of rights is a restraint on government, not a list of entitlements the government must provide or protect from encroachment by other citizens. He specifically lamented that when criticizing the Constitution. We have laws for that anyway. Murder is illegal, and government can punish those commit it, and should. But they can’t infringe on the rights of citizens because of what they, or others, MIGHT do.

Considering that even a number of Democrats are against Obama’s push for more Gun Control....Marco Rubio’s comments are not exactly earth-shattering “conservative”

Fact is that Marco Rubio is still an Amnesty Liberal. He agrees with Obama and many liberals on giving Illegal Alien Amnesty.

Since any form of Amnesty will bring up to 30 million people to legal status in the USA, and many of them eligible for government handouts....any form of Illegal Alien Amnesty will require one of the biggest spending programs in US history....as these former illegals will have to be brought into the system

This is what Rubio believes in. That is not conservative. You do not have to be a “purist” to figure that one out

If the GOP thinks that running a Cuban-Amer who is Amnesty Liberal will win a national presidential election...that would be like me thinking AJ McCarron’s GF will dump him and fall for me....

It is not your knowledge of Rubio that I dispute, it is the over use of the term RINO to the point that it’s meaningless. It’s your right to use it however you want. Its your right to call Jim DeMint and Sarah Palin RINO’s if you want, because I can find a RINO position or two even with them.

And it’s my right to explain why you mis use the term.
