    Rand Paul On Chris Christie: He Is The 'King Of Bacon'

    And the battle between a RINO and a right-libertarian within the RP continues.

    Chris Christie Is The "King Of Bacon," Says Rand Paul

    Last time I checked, political parties were supposed to be groups of people cooperatively working towards a common goal in the governance of a sovereign state.

    Political parties are not supposed to be people with vastly differing ideas that devolve into ad hominem amongst each other to win the right to lead the devolved **** heap that is called a party.

    Both the Democrats and Republicans hardly resemble proper parties. The lack of real leadership, centralised platform, and this sort of horse**** speaks volumes to that effect.

    That's how a two party system will work. People flock towards the party they most agree with and then try to influence the party more towards their specific ideologies.

    And I believe that is garbage. People should not be forced to binary politics when the party "they most agree with" is hardly so, nothing more than a case of voting for those you disagree with the least.

    It is absurd to me that your wonderful country is forced to accept a ticket from with you pick the lesser of two evils every four years.

    I usually vote independent or third party so you have no disagreement from me. I wouldn't mind a weighted system (with parties winning percentages of seats through the vote) in the house with the senate and the presidency losing party sponsorship all together.

    With the way your government functions, that would only see praise from me if that were to be implemented.

    Chris Christie is not a serious candidate for the GOP nomination. He is the darling of the leftist democrats. He would have a better chance switching parties and running than running for the GOP nomination. He is an emotive reactionary with no set platform or agenda other than to do what pleases the masses. Far too needy a politician to lead the utterly heartless GOP.

    Especially when Rank whines about his two military bases while Christie has eight. Today's data shows RED states being the "gimme" states compared to what they fought about 150 years ago. And yet there is no pleasing them, even with Obama serving up Repub ideas.

    Like the libertarians will attract that many people to vote for the Republicans. As if.
