But not "Conservative" in the wacked out right-wing evangelical "conservative" that represents today's GOP. But Conservative in the Goldwater/Reagan sense.
    Unfortunately, there aren't many people in power in the Republican Party that are conservative in the Goldwater/Reagan sense. I wish there were. The only really conservative part of California is Orange County, the rest is absurdly "gimme gimme gimme" liberal. They never met free public money projects they didn't like.

    Like I said...Ronald Reagan couldn't even get nominated in today's GOP.
    No, Reagan didn't drink the neo-con koolaid, he just knew what to say to make them give him money and votes. Today, unless you're a fanatic, you can't get any traction in the party.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    No. I support a robust and dominating American presence on the world stage, and believe in an aggressive and interventionist foreign policy to safeguard our position in the 21st Century in an effort to boost the continuing good prospects brought about by Democratic Empire and Hegemony. Rand Paul would be a decisive step in the opposite direction, as a Republican I'd be compelled to vote for Hillary Clinton or whomever the Democratic candidate is in 2016.

    I'm voting for the Green candidate in 2016!

    Oh, wait, Oklahoma has archaic, borderline-fascist ballot access laws...

    Well, damn, looks like Hillary in 2016. :|

    No, the statement was a Republican will never carry California - as in the future, you know. You're the only one living in the past. Ronald Reagan is your proof that in the 21st century the Republicans can win California.

    Yes depending on the democrat and if he got the GOP nomination. If Rand were to stick by his ideas when it comes to military and his real ideas on social spending, which is to say its a necessary evil, then if the dem was someone i couldn't get behind I would get behind him. At this point he is the only republican that may interest me. Then again I'm regionally biased.

    What has invading Afghanistan and Iraq brought us other than skyrocketing military budgets and instability in an already tense region?

    Yeah. Pretty much. The idealistic notions that the Bush administration played out for Iraq from school vouchers to breaking OPEC have all basically failed to materialize. And Iran is now stronger because of it.

    That said, Isolationism is not the answer, but wild adventures into foreign lands that last for years is clearly worse.

    No I wouldn't vote for Rand Paul. But I'd vote for his dad in a heartbeat.
