If Rand kills the patriot act today, It would gain serious points with me.

He's also down on the drug war. And interested in exploring cannabis's viability.

If Hillary shoots laser beams out of her eyeballs that burn the words "I'm with stupid" and an up arrow on Putin's bare chest it would gain some serious points with me. That's just about as likely as Rand killing the patriot act.

Oh hey are we collectively upset about the TPP or no?

As I stated, it's encouraging to see someone from the GOP to be discussing this stuff at all.


I honestly don't know anything about the TPP.

the amazing shotgun spread of the GOP does seem more like a polling strategy than an honest attempt by a broad range. Especially this early in the game.

Realistically I think GOP has it in the bag this time around. I dont think it will end up bushxclinton, maybe thats just so much not what i want... but it doesnt seem to be what anyone wants.

I think Scott Walker is the sleeper GOP candidate... Not sure who the sleeper Dem candidate is.

He's also against gay marriage, against the ACA, thinks women already have equality, against a woman's right to choose, except when it comes to vaccinating the kids. Then we can choose not to. And I just love this quote, "Just because a majority of the Supreme Court declares something to be 'constitutional' does not make it so."

And don't forget he believes in cutting taxes for the 'job creators'.

Yes, he says some good things, but the bad outweighs the good, imo.

And mr. non interventionist wants to increase military spending and was last seen on his knees kneeling between sheldon alderson's legs. The same sheldon that wants us to nuke Iran on Israel's behalf or I should say Israel's far right wingers behalf.

Hmmm.... thought he held different view on Marriage Equality.....
I didn't know some of the other stuff, or knew it and was stuff I didn't like.
Definitely wouldn't be voting for him either way.
Just caught of issues that sounded out of sorts on the GOP side of things.

Curious..... I could see the military spending being used on oh....
The Corp of Engineers to fix/(re)build infrastructure... but that's about all.
Doesn't sound like that is what he'd have in mind though.

Any GOP candidate, even the "likeable" ones currently, will eventually have to swallow their pride and fold to the base/establishment once the election season starts ramping up. I mean, look at what happened to "Maverick" McCain.

As for the Dems, their platform is too varied and scattered compared to the consolidated GOP's, it'll be interesting to see who comes out ahead for their nom.

imo.

Will this be the election the rest of America realizes having only two parties is crap,
and we finally go to a parliamentary like system w/ coalition gov'ts made of many parties?


Probably not.

Shit, man.... roundabouts make 90% of America's head spin.

I don't think we're ready for parliamentary proceedings.
