    You do realize Ron Paul's closest friend, and ally, in the House was Democrat Dennis Kucinich.
    They co-authored many bills together.

    Yep. My sentiments, and earlier made point, exactly.
    Fact is, the Republicans decided that the Libertarian vote was not what they wanted, so, despite Paul being the last competitor to Mitt standing, and with a huge delegate count of his own, they decided to change the delegation process, effectively disenfranchising a huge amount of delegates and GOP supporters, and at the same time, ending a path to the presidency that their great idol, Ronald Reagan, had used to secure his own victory.

    Here's the thing though. There's alot of people, myself included, who like that in your face governing and who isn't afraid to say "up yours" to the media. We had a mayor here in Buffalo with the same gruff personality (Mayor James D. Griffin) and as it turned out, his 16 years as mayor turned out to be some of the most successful years that Buffalo saw. We need someone like that, not some primadonna media whore in the WH.

    Christie, Rand, and Rubio winning.

    I expected that.

    For the love of God can we go at least six months after the election before we talk about the NEXT ONE!?

    If I see election ads next week, I'm gonna find you people!

    I don't believe the Republicans deserve the same amount of respect in the political arena as they've enjoyed in the past. Myself, my father (who has donated $$ annually for the last 40 years), and several people that I know are no longer supporters of the Republican party. What they did to Ron Paul was unacceptable. I supported Ron Paul, but my father didn't - only because he knew it would be a wasted vote. However, I know that even some Romney supporters were turned off by the behavior of the GOP establishment. The fact that they openly broke all the rules and simply bypassed the process in order to hand romney the nomination - and just the idea that they did this openly like we're all gonna think it's cool. What WERE they thinking? That we would want a cheating party (that made a mockery of a once fair election process) in the white house?

    Everyone says Paul never had a chance but I continue to emphasize that if that were true, then why didn't they simply do what's right and let romney win the nomibation fair and square? Can anybody answer this question? Here it is again: If Paul really had no chance, why didn't the GOP keep out of it and let romney win the nomination honorably? You don't have to be a Paul supporter to be disgusted by this.

    They don't deserve their usual spot 4 years from now. I would like to see a deviation from the whole 2 choices BS because it has gotten so - for lack of a better word, pre-fab. This you only have 2 choicesL: crap or sht has got to end. Why can't America just leave the whole "party" idea a thing of the corrupt past and just have 5 to 10 candidates that have no labels, only their ideas and policies. That would be a breath of fresh air. Why ISN'T it like that ? And the media should be regulated. Every candidate gets an equal amount of coverage and we need to make it a federal crime (felony) to falsify news. If you advertise and promote yourselves as "the news", then you are legally bound to that. Simple solutions... that won't happen. Pathetic.

    Portman probably has the best chance of the options given.
