    I've decided that if Rand Paul gets the GOP nomination I'll vote GOP for the first time ever. I'd prefer someone running under the libertarian platform but I'd be tickled to death that a candidate that matches my beliefs 75+% actually has somewhat of a chance of winning.

    I agree.

    Or, we could convince Gary Johnson to have massive plastic surgery to look like Rand Paul, change his name to Rand Paul and have him takeover Rand's life.

    Oh, we would have to kidnap the real Rand, wipe his memory and put him on a deserted island with food, money, some essential medicines and the first ever, gorgeous female android that is undetectable from the real thing (seems an alright guy, gotta give him a good life).

    Actually screw that...leave every one as they are and I'll move to the deserted Island with the above mentioned provisions/android.
    But give me a satellite phone...just in case the android drives me nuts and I want off the island. Either that or a volleyball made by Wilson.

    I could vote Republican but it would have to be one that did not spout the really stupid stuff all the time. Maybe if Christie makes a comeback....

    I have certain litmus tests that a candidate must pass before even having a shot at my vote, this time around. One of them has to do with domestic spying. Most of them have to do with upholding the principles of The Constitution as I see them.

    I find that I have diverged too much from either major party to be likely to vote for a candidate from one of them. For example, they love power so much that they will never agree with me that it is more important to preserve and restore domestic liberty and it's trappings than to be a superpower. The conflict between the two probably doesn't even register for them. Indeed, they think that being a superpower preserves liberty. Admittedly, that notion has a ring of truth to it because it was true that it did in fact make liberty more secure for a time. But that type of security itself has a shelf life, and now that it has run its course spoilage has morphed it into the thing to be feared. It was a seduction most complete, though not one for which we had no warnings.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    The last few POTUS elections I've voted for the GOP candidate, mostly because I simply *could not* have voted for the alternative.

    In 2016 it all depends.

    There are a few Dems I would actually vote for - Joe Manchin, Evan Bayh (even though he's no longer in DC), even the guy who was the Democratic governor of my state until 2012 (I voted for him more than once). And some who are being discussed as possibilities who I wouldn't vote for - Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, for example.

    There are a few Republicans I would vote for - Jon Huntsman quickly comes to mind. Some I won't consider - such as Mike Huckabee.

    LMAO that was a long answer. I guess the answer depends on who is the nominee for each party.

    The problem is that in the past the qualities that I like in a candidate are not the qualities that the GOP primary voters like in a candidate. For example, in the last election I wrote a contribution check to the Jon Huntsman campaign when he announced only to watch him go absolutely no where in the primaries. Maybe it will be different this time around, but I am not getting my hopes up.

    You complain about Republicans spouting stupid stuff, and then hope that Christie makes a comeback?

    I'm not so sure I trust him. He's not the same man his father was, he's been a huge political chameleon lately.
