    The GOP is going with Jeb in 2016, that's a given. So if Cruz and the TP are PO'ed about another establishment candidate running in 2016 then show some guts, break away. Instead of continuing to tear the GOP a apart take the Koch's money, and Cruz's and Palin's names and go. See how they can do away from the GOP.

    But the reality is the TP isn't going anywhere. Never will happen. They'll continue to try and takeover of the GOP platform and ideology and continue with the civil war within the GOP. They get more publicity that way. The problem for the GOP is the Dems are loving the GOP civil war too.
    How's the establishment GOP stuff been working? The Speaker had the most votes against a speaker in a long time. People are sick and tired of Boehner acting like a cowtowing Yes man to the Democratic Party. Apparently you like that, but a moderate probably would.

    If the vote was to take place now, and the 2 candidates on the board for the main 2 parties were + the rest of the third party possibles:

    Ted Cruz (R)

    Hillary Clinton (D)

    Terry Jones (I)

    Zoltan Istvan (transhumanist party)

    Jill Stein (Green Party)

    Bernie Sanders (I)

    Gary Johnson (Libertarian)

    Who would you vote for and if you want to, why would you do that?
    I do not think this is going to be an accurate assessment of things, not even close.

    I tend to agree with you. I think Hillary would be the easiest, let me rephrase that, the least hardest to beat. Independents are not too thrilled with her. But they are even less thrilled with the listed Republican choices. Hillary usually win independents in head to head match ups with the different prospective Republican nominees 50-40. How much of that is name recognition is hard to say this far out.
    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.

    Not with Libertarians. From what I have seen they do not really take whom they will nominate until around their convention time. Even if Johnson started running now, the main stream media would pay him no attention. You would have to tune into C-Span to find out anything about him.

    Of course it isn't, hence the "Round 1" title of this thread.

    I'm a Green, but I selected Bernie Sanders. If he could get the nomination, and a Green endorsement, he would have some potential. Otherwise, I would vote for Jill Stein. The Greens are not Corporate friendly and that is very important to me, and nearly as important as the environmental policies.

    I'm surprised we don't have Zoltan Barry by now.

    Zoltán is a Hungarian masculine given name. It originates from the Old Turkish word soltan, sultan, meaning strong authority or rulership, which was borrowed from the Arabic sultan, and derived from an Arabic verb Sultah meaning authority or power. In modern times Zoltan and Sultan are used to mean king. Zoltan was one of the first kings of Hungary in the early 900s AD.

    How did Romney running to the right work out in 2012?

    After the loss in 2012 the GOP spent millions on studies from pollsters, universities, etc. trying to figure how Obama, a man with waning support and in a weak economy easily defeated Romney. As far as I know all the studies I saw said the same thing. The moderate Romney ran too far to the right and that turned off the moderate voters, especially the younger voters.

    I know Fox, and Limbaugh, Levin, and others are all saying the studies were wrong, and the GOP needs to move even further to the right. So then form your own party, and GTFO of the GOP. They can get some money, they got many conservative pundits who would give them some publicity, and they have households names like Palin and Cruz.

    Get out. Form a far right 3rd party, especially on social issues, and see how 'it's our way or the highway', and you need to be 100% ideologically pure agenda works out for you.
