    He is the least stupid as far as I can tell. I have never heard him say birth certificate or any of the other amazingly stupid stuff that comes from the right. He seems sane. Who else is there at deals mainly in facts instead of fantasy?

    Party has never been important to me. I always voted for the candidate which I thought would make the best president and be good for America. My first vote was cast for Barry Goldwater back in 1964 and beginning with that vote I have voted for 5 Republicans, 2 Democrats and 6 third party/independents. As the years went by, I became more and more dissatisfied with the choices the two major parties offered and I decided I would never vote for the least worst candidate as if you do, no matter who wins you still end up with a bad president.
    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.

    Among the Republican bunch? None. Ron Paul is the only one I can think of and, well, he's retired so he doesn't really count.

    Christie has time, but he it will have to be the investigation committee committee head by NJ Assemblyman John Wisniewski which clears him or finds no wrong doings on Christie's part. His own internal investigation really means nothing in the grand scheme of things.

    Sensible people vote for candidates. Brainwashed idiots vote for parties.

    my guess is that the investigation will run well into 2015 to about the time when a candidate should announce they are running for president. a agree with you on the last part.

    I agree. I liked his father a lot more but his father was a straightforward, honest man with convictions, which means he never stood a chance of getting elected. I think of Rand Paul as Ron Paul lite but with more of the BS political appeal that wins elections.

    I would obviously much rather have a pure libertarian candidate, but I simply can't pass up the chance to support what could possibly be the GOP's most libertarian candidate to date.

    For the record, I would not vote for either major party unless you put a gun to my head...though I did not always feel that way.

    Nope.

    If I feel that I can't honestly support the candidate my party nominates because I believe he has a high chance of actively damaging the country in some fashion, rather than simply doing some things I disagree with, then I will end up voting Democratic (highly unlikely, but impossible to completely rule out without seeing their candidate), 3rd party, or write in.
