    MIAMI (AP) Sen. Marco Rubio is telling his top donors that he is running for president because he feels "uniquely qualified" to pitch his Republican Party as one that will defend the American Dream.

    The first-term Republican from Florida told his biggest backers on a conference call on Monday that he sees the coming presidential campaign as a choice between the past and the future. In a swipe at Democratic rival Hillary Rodham Clinton, Rubio said the former first lady "is a leader from yesterday."

    Rubio says he has always felt the United States is about tomorrow.


    Does he have a chance?
    Does the Pope sh*t in the woods?

    Let's see who supports Rubio

    Women rights? Naaa

    Employment training for veterans? Naaa

    Pro-choice? Naaaa

    LGBT? Naaaa

    Tea Partisans? Not anymore

    Rubio? Not even a slight chance.

    So Rubio's Political career is close to Obama's is it not?
    Both 1 term Senators, yet Obama is slammed for that and Rubio is what?

    Well I have slammed him for the same JF. He needs more experience and has to work on Domestic issues. The same goes for Cruz and Paul in not having much experience.

    He can't just rely on FP and where the Big Boys play.

    Needs to show he can take care of the house so to speak. Budgeting, cleaning up, and control the arguing with the kids.

    Rubio is as good a contemporaneous speaker as there is in American politics today. He's a good looking guy. He's electable. We'll have to see if he can raise the money and campaign effectively. He has a chance. Not my first choice but certainly better than the corrupt elderly Mrs. Clinton.

    Specifically, truly live up to America's capitalistic ideals. If free market capitalism is what this country is truly all about, then the way to truly turn things around is to teach the nation's people about the world of finance. I'm not talking about a basic economics class. I'm talking about a complete course study OR perhaps aspects of financial literacy could be taught from elementary school through high school. Our public education system got away from doing this even in high school several years ago. The idea is finally making a revival which is a good thing. But if you want to change things and get away from this "US -vs- THEM", rich -vs- poor issue, the best way to do it is to education your nation's people about money! For too long this has been left up to individual households to do. Unfortunately, not all "heads of household" have a true understanding about finances. You'd be surprised, for example, to know how many millennials really don't know how to balance a checkbook. (Of course, to be honest most of us who are one generation above rely on spreadsheets and calculating apps to "do the math" for us. So...)

    Now, there will always be some people who won't get the lesson. And these people will struggle financially. Moreover, there will always be poor people among any society. That's a given. Additionally, I fully understand that there will be people on both ends of the financial spectrum who will be irresponsibly with their money, but I'm of the opinion that the more you teach people about the world of finance even on a basic level, the more responsible financial stewards you'll have. And most of those will go on to be savers and investors, not spend thrifts.

    From there anything is possible. For example, if you want to go on to take more advanced courses in finance, i.e., become a CPA, you can do that. But you'd have the basics in financial literacy down beforehand. To me, that's a good thing.
    I would suggest to start with the very basic of basics, school vouchers allows a student to pick the school of his/her choice. Thus parents will be looking for teachers with results rather than union teachers dedicated to the benefit of the teacher first over the student.

    Navy......Hispanics are not going to vote for someone just because they are hispanic. That is just your racist views. Sorry....but Latino voters are smarter than you give them credit for. They vote on the issues they care about not just on the color of skin....and sorry....Rubio will get very little of the Hispanic vote.

    Just wait NP......Hillary is going to select Julian Castro as her running mate and he will energize the young vote in much the same way that Hillary energizes a large proportion of the population. People don't just vote for people that match their own demographics....I'm sorry that your old white male mind can't comprehend that.

    They can say all they want about Rubio but that tells me they are scared of his strength. Rubio would be Hillery's nightmare. Old vs young, old ideas vs new ideas, old foreign policy ideas vs new etc etc etc.
