The "citizens" are too uninformed to pick out such candidates.
Especially the dead ones. It’s like they can’t learn anymore or something.
Rand Paul On Shutdown: "Even Though It Appeared I Was Participating In It, It Was A Dumb Idea"I said throughout the whole battle that shutting down the government was a dumb idea. Even though it did appear as if I was participating in it, I said it was a dumb idea. And the reason I voted for it, though, is that it's a conundrum. Here's the conundrum. We have a $17 trillion debt and people at home tell me you can't give the president a blank check. We just can't keep raising the debt ceiling without conditions. So unconditionally raising the debt ceiling, nobody at home wants me to vote for that and I can't vote for that. But the conundrum is if I don't we do approach these deadlines. So there is an impasse. In 2011, though, we had this impasse and the president did negotiate. We got the sequester. If we were to extend the sequester from discretionary spending to all the entitlements we would actually fix our problem within a few years.[Posted on 11/19/2013 12:16:51 PM by Third Person]
Rand Paul: Time for GOP to soften war stance...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.[Posted on 01/31/2013 5:08:50 PM PST by xzins]
Rand Paul's immigration speech...The Republican Party must embrace more legal immigration.[Posted on 03/19/2013 7:04:07 AM PDT by Perdogg]
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.
Rand Paul calls on conservatives to embrace immigration reformLatinos, should be a natural constituency for the party, Paul argued, but "Republicans have pushed them away with harsh rhetoric over immigration." ...he would create a bipartisan panel to determine how many visas should be granted for workers already in the United States and those who might follow... [and the buried lead] "Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers...[Posted on 04/21/2013 1:52:42 PM PDT by SoConPubbie]
[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 Christian-murdering jihadists][Posted on 08/15/2013 5:44:10 PM PDT by Hoodat]
I appreciate his honesty...Next Candidate!
Good point. They want “rock stars”. God help us!
+1 Wow! Profound thought.
I suppose we will have to wait and see but I have this sick feeling in my stomach because I see the Republican party becoming the “Pro-Homosexuality” party (like Glen Beck pushes) while the Democrat party takes up the “Pro-Polygamy”, “Pro-Pedophile” party mantra...
Dear Jeb, I am not changing my view, either. I am never voting for a RINO again — especially YOU!
His little Chihuahua wifey calls the shots.
Hear that, mean-old right-wing monsters?
Defending the security of our nation from hordes of foreign invaders equates to shrill partisan sniping.
We need to learn and sing kumbaya and listen to our better elites explain to us why hordes of foreign invaders will make us a better nation.
Not going to happen here, in this household.
I know when Sept-Oct 2016 hits, you're going to hear FReepers screaming that we must vote for Jeb to stop Hillary or whoever is on the Rat ticket.
Nope, not gonna do it. And I'm not voting down-ticket either because Jeb will drag them down as well.
Guess I'll be doing yard work on that Tuesday in Nov 2016.
From the article: “but Bush said he remains committed to finding a path for immigrants in the country illegally to find legal standing.”
What an obvious statement that he’s in favor of letting non-citizens take over the country.
Good. Hope that means that with out the conservative base is fails to win the nomination.
I agree. Jeb even speaks Spanish at home. And there is something smug and smarmy about him. He is the worst of the Bushes.
Neither will we. I don’t want Bush. I really don’t. He’s the canned Republican candidate. I hope we can beat him.
