Dear Republicans, Please nominate Rand Paul. Sincerely,
I would guess Hill and Bill have some pretty big smiles on their faces this St.
Paddy's Day, as do many of us after hearing this news!
I couldn't stand Ron Paul but Rand Paul seems to be the only candidate that
seems to stand up to the democratic oligarchs. So he probably gets my vote. I
prefer a country where the government doesn't spend of its money policing
its own people.
I would vote for Rand in a heart beat ...but he has no chance in this new
socailist America. Reagan couldn't win today.
@LovelyDeseret"I prefer a country where the government
doesn't spend of its money policing its own people."Both
candidates voted for legislation opposing abortion rights and marriage equality.
I don't think you mean what you claim to mean. Policing people is the
Republican forte, well, with the exception of pursuing debunked social and
Patriot - "Reagan couldn't win today."You're
absolutely correct; he'd be run out of town as a RHINO during the Repub
primaries.Further, with American economic inequality the highest
it's been in 100 years and with an increasingly smaller percentage of
individual Americans owning more and more of the nation's resources, lands,
corporations, etc... despite individual American workers steadily increasing in
wealth productivity, I don't think "socailist (sic)" means what you
think it means.
@riverofsun ...the same smiles when they found out Obama was running for
president back in 2007?
A Rand Paul nomination would ensure the Democrats another Presidential victory.
These guys never learn that their brand of conservatism is way to extreme. They
talk about not policing people, but that is exactly what the social policies of
the far-right accomplishes.
I can see Larry and Curly in the picture but where is Moe?
We could only be so lucky to have Rand paul.
Rep. Trey Gowdy of NC for President. Watch and listen to him. Former prosecuting
attorney. He's smart, articulate, and a fierce attack-dog against the
opposition. He has great ideas and understands the financial mess we are in and
how to solve it. Find him on YouTube and see some of the latest things he has
said on the House floor. The more I hear him, the more I like him!
Huntsman could defeat HRC. Paul, not so much.
Rand Paul wants to be a "partner with the working class". That would be
nice if it were true. But as we have seen here in Utah, his party denied health
coverage to almost 100,000 "working class citizens". In Louisiana his
party's governor turned down 1.6 billion in Medicaid expansion for 257,000
working class citizens. His party is hardly for the working class unless that
class is working for the companies that attended Lee's fundraiser at the
Alta Club. I wonder if any poor working class were invited to that? But that is
the rhetoric that they spew.
He will legalize marijuana in Utah and retract our foreign presence to Kentucky.
But he would allow Lee to become king of Utah.
Moe was back in Washington trying to become a committee chair.
Do Senators have to take Annual Leave when spending their time campaigning and
fundraising? It seems that we elect them to do a job, then they spend all their
time fundraising for their next election. I don't like them doing that on
my dime. I know at my job, if I want to go raise funds for a cause, I have to
take Annual Leave or vacation time to do it.
I doubt any presidential candidate will illicit the same support from me that
Br. Romney did, but from what I can tell so far, Rand Paul sounds decent.I'm wary of the social issues, though. I don't want there to
be "the liberal party" and "the liberal party that's slightly
less theophobic and slightly smarter about foreign policy"; then they really
would just be two sides of the same coin.
The picture that is being used as the first picture made me sing a song -
"And they call it puppy love."
The nature and character of Republicans is best seen in their seemingly inbred
loyalty and devotion to capitalistic, free-for-all, let-the-buyer-beware,
business. It's like they think the world is made up of business people and
some other types of living things that exist only for the purpose of being used
by business as pawns in their game of winner take all. An example
is the TV channel that boasts being fair and balanced in their views but anyone
could tell from listening to 5 minutes of their output that they are 100%
business and don't seem to attach any import to other human beings. Some
of us other people like to think that we are an important part of life also.
The notion of Libertarians and many Republicans that every man can
be the King-of-the-world, just ain't necessasarily so.
@BYUalum I recently became aware of Representative Trey Gowdy of NC.
I agree with your comments. He is someone worth taking a serious look at.
Repubs! Learn from our past mistakes and do some serious make-overs. Use the
Dem Play Book and add our own sneaky moves:Either dye his hair and
skin, or get a black presidential nominee, with a female minority veep.They must be hip and do the late night curcuit.Must be able to dance,
play an instrument, or "get" social media.Promise everything; (no
need to deliver later...)It's all about the perception, not the
substance. So play along, bury your head in your tweets and don't reveal
your agenda until deep into your term.C'mon!
