    Paul, but I'd support Cruz too.

    Please give a brief, or not so brief explanation on why you like him or her.
    Susana Martinez, good governor and hence with executive experience in a state usually run by Democrats and she has shown she can get things done. She may be one of only a couple that could win 2016 from the GOP. A female hispanic, sharp as a tact to boot.

    now if I had to choose a Democrat for 2016, Evan Byah, I have no use for Hillery or Biden.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I could see her as a VP for say, Christie or Paul. Establishment would never allow her in my opinion to top the bill...

    I tried to give it a mix of populist favorites and those who actually stand a chance. I didn't include Daniels or Johnson because, Mitch's wife is a old battle axe and GJ leaving like he did would never get the party's blessing.

    I didn't include Huntsman, which a couple people here have asked about because quite frankly, I don't see it. His support for 3rd party politics made him anathema with the Establishment and he for all intents could be portrayed as another Romney...

    Re: If the 2016 Election Were Held Today

    No, NO, and HELL NO!!!

    I want a constitutional scholar as my next prez.

    Newt and RON Paul were my choices, for all of the good it did me, last time.

    NEXT TIME?

    I want to SEE "qualifications" and records and I'd really like to trust in the man I elect.

    This system that we have now?
    Does NOT allow that,
    AND has been raped to force us/US to choke on feces,
    in the form of fraudulent voting practices.

    I meant to say "will do most good as Senator", of course.

    What is it with you people and the constant desire for political spectacle and non-stop campaigning.
    I mean, I get that the whole election period is like a big circus, but honestly, the circus officially ended just 6 months ago. Are you already missing it?

    I am saying officially because unofficially its still going on.

    I'm one who believes proper preparation prevents poor performance. Personally I normally would agree with you, but seeing as the last few elections I voted for 3rd party (you wouldn't know this) I wanted to see who the people who'd most likely vote GOP were looking at.
