    Rand Paul is about the only good candidate from either primary mainstream party. Everyone else is just too many parts crazy for my liking.

    Vote for Ted Cruz and eat green eggs and ham. Am I gonna vote for him? Yes I am. I will not vote for Huckabee, nor will I vote for Santorum, you see. I will not vote for that guy Mitt, his policies are complete s***. I might vote for Senator Paul, and watch Hillary's campaign fall.

    Rand Paul is good. But Ted Cruz is too.

    Don't put a candidate's "sanity" into question. Everyone in the world is a little crazy.

    And so long as the public shrugs their shoulders and votes for mediocrity (at best) anyway...then they have NO ONE blame but themslves.

    I believe, that to vote for a politician you believe to be incompetent but you do so simply because they are the 'best available' is unpatriotic.
    And I also believe that to refuse to vote for lousy politician's even if that means not voting at all IS patriotic.
    Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Bobby Jindal - are NOT doing harm. I don't care what the liberal media paints it as.

    So you are wrong about the naive part. I think people who disagree with those candidates are naive.

    I agree about how mediocrity is bad.

    And, there are always write-in candidates. So it would be unpatriotic to not vote at all. I'm not saying vote for the bad candidate, but vote for a write-in if you have to.

    Yeah, but there is definitely a scale, and when there's too much, you know...

    As to Senator Cruz, he's too McCarthyish for my liking. And, he wasn't born in the United States.

    Yep, I doubt he will go far in the primaries. But here is hoping. Unlike the current president I think Webb knows the value of keeping the party across the aisle on friendly terms even if you battle them till the cows come in. A bit of give and take can lead to a very successful presidency if one knows when and how much, plus on what.
    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.

States that will go Republican no matter who they run and have gone Republican since 2000 in all 4 presidential races. Jeb Bush would win these states, so would John Kasich or Howdy Doody unless they stepped into a huge pile of manure. You add Florida to that mix with Bush that is 220. More than McCain or Romney received, but a long way from 270. Hence a Kasich/Rubio ticket would in my opinion add Ohio to that total bring the GOP up to 238.

    The problem for the Republicans is the number of electoral votes in Democrat trustworthy states, 247. Just 23 shy of the 270 needed to win. This is where Jim Webb comes in with the state of Virginia, add its 13 EV and now the Democrats are at 260 needing just 10 more.

    Left are the swing states of New Hampshire 4, North Carolina 15, Iowa 6, Nevada 6, Colorado 9.

    The last 3 swing states are Florida 29, Ohio 18 and Virginia 13 which I mentioned above.
    nothing wrong with looking at it that way but in 2016 i think social issues will be big in america and may give some surprises to the numbers and averages

    Sadly for the Republicans, they cannot gerrymander state boundaries.

    The electoral college must be respected.

    Any talk of a candidate must be able to win the EC, no matter how they might do in the total popular vote.

    So, when it comes to choosing a candidate and his running mate ..

    .. Think hard, Republicans .. think very, very hard.

    Personal pet ideology is meaningless if you're, once again, on the powerless outside looking in at all that executive power you so foolishly traded for your adamant ideological stand.
    You don't trust Trump? Well, there's only one way to leverage him to do what's economically right for us all: Powerful American Political Alliance. Got courage?! .. and a mere $5.00?
