    There's a lot of saner choices that are closer to Webb on the GOP side than Paul. How you could go from Paul to Webb is beyond me.

    ah the things I disagree with him on.
    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

So, I will be with the Democrats (if Webb or Sanders happens to win), the Libertarians (if Gary Johnson or a libertarian just as moderate wins), or the Greens.
    You tell it, baby girl! I am right there with you.

    I'd also venture to say that since Rand Paul wants to prop up Israel, give militiarized drones to police departments, keep pot illegal, make abortion illegal, place sanctions on Russia, and uphold traditional marriage, that he's less of a "libertarian" option and more of a typical run of the mill Teabagger. Thought I'd kinda establish that since, as a gal that thinks of herself as having strong libertarian leans on many issues, it rather bugs me when people make him out that way. He's slightly less nutty than his other TP counterparts (*cough* Ted Cruz *cough*), but that's not really saying much since they can all see Russia from their house and like to read Dr. Seuss books on the house floor.
    I had to re-read this twice to make certain that I didn't write it. I could not agree with you more. Bazinga!

    Yup. But frankly, that doesn't much matter since I won't be voting for him, or any Republican for that matter. The GOP has a long way to go on basically every aspect of its platform before I will give them another glance of consideration.

    I apologize for being a bit off-topic here ..

    .. But I'd like everyone, especially moderators and administrators, to take a look at the poll results.

    If a poll here is to mean anything, we have to find a way to protect against visitor spam voting.
    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?

    Re: Where does your GOP Candidate fit on the spectrum?

    I am not politically ignorant enough to have either a Dem or a Rep candidate.

    Anyone who thinks either party is better then useless does not understand American politics.

    The same goes for anyone who thinks that voting for a crap candidate is better then not voting at all...WRONG!!!


    When Ron Paul retired, the last decent major party candidate retired with him (at least for now).

    What an embarrassing line-up for the GOP.

    Where's your favorite candidate?

    To get me to vote GOP again, it would have to be someone to the Northwest of Paul.

    Agreed. Probably Jeb. I'd like for him to be a little more moderate though.

    Oh, but there ain't none in that graphic, I lose.

    But wait, Christie did give Obama a big bear hug.
    You don't know how to read the graphic. Christie, Bush and Martinez are all moderates according tho the graphic.
