    That is what happens when a Party needs to change to remain relevant. Some will resist it while others will embrace it. Since the GOP is the 'conservative party', change is especially difficult and contentious.

    You just lined out why he won't receive the nomination, too hard right. You think mainstream voters want someone more hard right after people like him supported a gov't shutdown? tsk, tsk.

    Apples and oranges. Paul opposed fed interference on private business policies. While Paul is still pretty staunch on immigration (which I disagree with him on) he is still more reasonable on the issue than many Republicans (see other links).

    He combines two of America's least favorite things: congress and frivolous lawsuits. Lefties are very fond of the latter.

    He's a creepy religious nut who buys into the whole "poor people are moochers" nonsense. He gets points for actually caring about the 4th amendment and doesn't want to war for profit, but any decent liberal has the same stance. There's nothing that a Paul would bring that Elizabeth Warren or Burnie Sanders wouldn't, and they'd do the right thing by more than just the wealthiest Americans.

    So you are saying that all leftwingers are crazy.
    Xy doesn't cotton to that kind of talk from the other side, even about Ted Nugent with his subhuman mongrel insults at your President .

    Thank you for admitting all that. But the one issue which will simply kill him and all the ticket under him is when he steps up to explain his opposition to civil rights laws. America will simply not stand for that and he will quickly and accurately be tagged as a type of racist who is simply fifty years out of time. And that will destroy him and his ticket.

    Which is why he will never get the GOP nomination no matter how much I would like to see him imitate the captain of the TITANIC.
