    If stupid people were prevented from voting, both parties might actually have to run on substance and a good platform and plan rather than "don't let gays get married" or "My health care reform is better than your nearly identical health care reform."

    Old folks, strange how they were pretty much monolithic voting for the Democrats from FDR until Reagan came along. Did he have anything to with the switch over or did most of the FDR crowd just die out? Perhaps Reagan did some, but I think most of those old FDR folks just went for the dirt nap. I think Reagan brought a lot of those 20 year old back in the 80's into the Republican fold which would put them in their 50's now so old folks will probably tend to be a bit more Republican for 10-20 years to come.

    Clinton brought the young back into the Democratic fold and they will probably tend to vote that way and will replace the ones Reagan lured into the Republican Party. You have always had trends like this and will always will until the good old USA hits its expiration date.
    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.

    : Why some want to hurry the expiration date will doubtless be made obvious soon. When I start wondering about things that are currently going on, it seems that we are now going to be asked what we stand for. Too many good people of all colors are being vilified by those that want to turn this country into something that is not what our Constitution and Bill of Rights offered to all people, and I find that so sad. Our politicians are letting us down, and worse of all, they don't care. Party truly has become more important than what is good for the people of this country.

    One hopeful thing I saw this morning---my innocent little Christmas cactus, which sits on a stand by the window, has burst into full bloom, right on Nature's timetable. This humbled me and gave me a little reminder that that there are greater truths in the universe than we can imagine, and that our petty squabbles over things might keep us at odds with each other, but in the end, it doesn't matter. Time will go on, whether we are here or not. :

    Good morning, Pero.

    Re: 2016 Republican Primary

    Huntsman I'd love to see get the nod, but I don't think he will NOR am I certain he can win (I think 2012 he would've won handily)

    I like Rand Paul and think he's a smart and deft enough politician to do okay, but I didn't agree with nor like a short term Senator being a candidate for President in 2008 and I'm not magically changing my mind because they have an (R) next to their name. So I would rather not see him at the top of the ticket. I think he'd be a GREAT VP nominee.

    Cruz is a less politically deft and more socially polarizing Rand Paul....basically, all the negatives with Paul and few unique advantages. Pass in terms of the Presidency.

    Perry I just don't think has the electability to be a true contender. Santorum....hahahaha, no.

    Huckabee could be interesting. Has executive experience that I like, but some past social comments give me pause. A little more populist at times than I'd like.

    Christie I think, at this point, may be the best top of ticket choice. Fiscally conservative which is the portion of the platform with the widest appeal, but more moderate socially which is the part of the platform with the most polarization attached to it. He'd need to be paired with someone like Paul.

    Portman's an interesting choice. Along with that I'd be interested in possibly seeing Nikki Haley if she wins re-election in SC (looking like she will at this early moment). Tea Party backed, executive experience, and a number of things that will help electability.

    Re: 2016 Republican Primary

    Yes I almost always agree with this, but one I can't is Chris Christie. Mind you I think he'd make a terrific candidate for the Democrats and would encourage him to run as a Democrat - hell I could even vote for him as a Democrat, but his antics are far too leftist for me to support as one ready for a conservative leader. If I have a choice between a leftist like the hildabeast and so called moderate like Christie I can just stay home as my vote would not be reflected in the outcome of the election anyway.

    Like all the assholes who stayed home because they didn't Like Romney's faith or they didn't think he was conservative enough so they gave us four more years of Obamatardation. And the bible thumping bigots will probably get their panties in a wad over Rob's son Will being Gay.

    Re: 2016 Republican Primary

    Oh wow. A lot more votes since last night. 33 votes.

    Rand Paul 27%
    Jon Huntsman 24%
    Chris Christie
    Other 15%
    Ted Cruz 9%
    Mike Huckabee 3%
    Rick Perry 3%
    Rob Portman 3%

    Last I checked it was 1 of the "Other" votes was for Rob Portman, 2 didn't announce who, and 3 more I have yet to check if they announced who their "Other" votes were for. And interesting how Rand Paul jumped to be the new frontrunner for this poll. Last I checked it was Jon Huntsman in the beginning.

    Re: 2016 Republican Primary

    I think if the GOP was smarter, they would each find a certain wing of the GOP to represent a certain faction of it.

    Be they conservatives, tea party, moderate. For example, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, - are all more Tea Party. Rick Santorum, Mike Huckabee, are more conservative. Chris Christie, Jon Huntsman, Paul Ryan seem to be more moderate.

    Rather than dividing the percentage, to ensure that two tea parties don't split the tea party vote within the GOP Primary and get another moderate nominated - rather those in each part of the party should set forth a candidate that best represents their views.

    This is only just a strategy, of course. And every candidate or potential candidate should do what they think is right. I understand that the Primary Debates in 2015 will give an example of where each candidates stand in polls before the NH Primary & Iowa Caucus.
