    I wasn't talking about me voting.

    I was talking about who I thought would be the best Republican leader.

    He went full-retard long ago, when he abandoned the nationally-recognized ophthalmology accreditation group that he belonged to and started his own self-run accreditation group (which has since been dissolved) in a temper tantrum over periodic recertification[1].

    He confirmed his full-retardedness when he went on a rant about the dysfunctional water saving toilets in his home during an official Senate committee meeting:

    “I can’t buy a toilet that works,” he [Paul] replied.

    “I can help you find a toilet that works,” she [Kathleen Hogan, the deputy assistant secretary for energy efficiency at the Department of Energy] offered.

    “Are you going to pay for it?” quipped Paul

    All the above was more or less behind the scenes -- the real Rand, no posturing for the cameras, no pandering to potential voters. Coo-coo for Coca Puffs.

    Well I'd like to hear others opinions, But Sen. Rand Paul has certainly got my attention with his spot-on comments.
    Weather he is right or wrong on this issue, if he runs for president in 2016, he is my first choice so far.

    Rand Paul is a good guy and I don't say that lightly.



    He's not a thug like Cruz or a joke like Perry or a pseudo Communist like Jeb.

    I don't have any real idea if Sen.Rand Paul will be a 2016 candidate, but I do have a sneaking suspicion that he just might me the guy who's going to save the GOP.

    Right now, I kinda like what he's sayin'

    18 states have voted "blue" in 6 consecutive presidential elections. The total electoral vote value of these states is 242. While there are a couple of those states that some consider "competitive" (like PA, that the Republicans think is in play, but never really is)... there are others that are increasingly competitive that are traditional "red" states, including Georgia, Arizona and Texas.

    18 states have voted Democratic in six consecutive elections with 242 electoral votes, George Will says | PunditFact

    For the most part, a presidential race begins with 242 votes in the Democratic camp and 102 in the Republican camp, with 270 needed to win

    The list does not include Colorado, New Mexico and Nevada, which have trended blue over the last dozen years. Those three states are worth an additional 20 votes. Throw in Virginia and New Hampshire in the mix and the party could be over before it begins.
