    And you have a 97% chance every time you post.

    No.

    Ryan represents the Ayn Rand wingnuts who seek to benefit the richest of the rich.

    He had to act like a crackpot to get the nomination. Hence he lost the election. Next time they will cut out the middle man and just nominate a crackpot.

    I know you'd like to think that, but that's another reason the GOP is doomed. It sees enemies everywhere and thinks reasoned argument is somehow passé due the impending communist threat or something. Totally delusional of course. Another reason it's doomed and will nominate a freak like Palin.

    Republicans now believe their own propaganda, which is usually the beginning of the end for a party.

    I don't think being dependent on the FedGov is a joke because that means you're dependent on me. And since I carry a larger and larger burden with each passing day, I can't continue to support more and more of you.

    Sorry but, those are the facts of life.

    ROMNEY 2016!
    Last time he lost because he had the wrong VP. This time he should run with Palin to help compensate for his lack of foreign policy credentials.

    Not only would it be a mistake for him to run again, it would be a massive mistake for the GOP to even consider allowing him to do so. Mitt lost in 2012 at least in part because the Conservative/Tea Party sector of the party told the GOP that they are no longer interested in Democrat-Lite candidates, just as we had done with their candidate, Mr. McCain in 2008. If the GOP cannot get it through their heads at this point that a large portion of their voting block is NOT going to support another Moderate/Centrist/Democrat-Lite candidate then their party deserves to lose all credibility and capability to win an election.
