    Well, i find paul and carson to be constitutionalist

    True, I should have been more clear with my comment. It seemed some were discarding Carson because he might be a " creationist".. SO WHAT? And also some willing to discard Paul because of their perception of his father as " nutty" and once again I say SO WHAT. Those 2 and Cruz are the only ones I believe are not RINOs and that's whats needed. If the Republicans run the likes of a Christie, Bush, Romney or a Huntsman I will set it out, becasue I want no part of it. Ive essentially had it with this party and im giving them ONE more chance or im done with them.

    I never really bought into the notion that the Mormon faith significantly hurt Romney in any tangible way.

    Scott Brown


    At this point i am leaning Paul or Carson

    I like the idea of a president that has done something other than politics. I also share many of the same positions of paul and carson. Not all, but i dont miss the forest for the trees. I would support any of the above candidates tho if they won the primary.

    What say you

    Jon Huntsman, Paul Ryan are good choices. Both have much experience, are the fresh faces the GOP needs, sensible, and promising. I also like Chris Christie.

    my sister in law is a bible thumping true believer. she voted third party because she claims Mormons aren't Christians. I asked her if she thought "Reverend Wright" was a more a Christian than Mitt. she admits she was an idiot now

    Chris Christie is not only a RINO, but if you put a horn on him he'd look like a RHINO

    TBH I haven't followed him that much. I followed him with interest after Hurricane Sandy (then again, everybody did) but that was a while ago. He may have changed. That's why I added him almost as an afterthought.
