That would be a tough one for me. While I disagree with Newt on a lot of issues and I have concerns about him having an authoritarian streak in his nature and ethical concerns given his history, I like Newt and I think he has credibility on my main issue inthis election, which is the deficit and spending. He wouldn't go as far as I'd like to, but he would seriously address it. And I admire Newt's intellect and ability to think outside the box (even though sometimes it gets him in trouble).
Paul on the other hand goes way farther than I would. But I like the overall message of small, limited government, personal liberty, and non-interventionism.
I suppose if Newt was running in a close race, I'd give him the nod despite my concerns since I know Paul couldn't possibly win. If Newt was way behind, I'd be more tempted to go over to Paul.
Slipping into madness is good for the sake of comparison - Unknown.
Rand Paul: Republicans would take a giant step backward by choosing Gingrich | The Des Moines Register | DesMoinesRegister.com
I don't buy into your analysis that Rand Paul will march lock-step as Republicans work hard to put another liberal republican on the GOP ticket.
Wouldn't have to vote. Obama would be elected.
