    I’d like to see John Boehner go, while I realize it matters not one whit if he remains as Speaker of the House:

    It’s about more than speakers. Thomas Sowell is talking about presidential candidates —— not speakers —— nevertheless, he nails it pretty good:

    I’ll go Sowell one better and say conservative voters are the 9th wonder of the world. How can they keep voting for establishment Republicans in light of the way Democrats cream them every time. Either top Republicans are in the tank, or they are just too stupid to learn.

    I’ve been saying conservatives had better start forming a Third Party right now; a party that concentrates on winning enough seats in the House and Senate in 2014 and 2016 to shutdown the Democrat/Republican shell game before wasting resources on a presidential candidate’s campaign.

    As soon as the House rolled over for the massive “fiscal cliff” tax increase it became imperative for conservative voters to abandon the Republican party. Does the SS Republican have to slip beneath the waves before abandoning ship? If you know anything about shipwrecks you know that the Republican party is listing so badly the lifeboats can’t be launched:

    If you are a conservative think of it this way. You’re abandoning the leaders in both political parties.

    I left the republican party and registered independent back when they threw that old RINO fuck McLame and the moose shooter from Alaska at us as the best we had. No thanks.

    I think what's going on is going to drive even more people from the party, so if republicans have any hopes what so ever of saving their party, they better get their shit together and fast, or it'll be decades or maybe never before they ever see another majority.

    In the meantime the kenyan and the united socialist democrat party WILL ruin the country.

    The problem is the GOP, when there is no clear choice like Reagan, goes for an old guard Republican saying it's "his turn"

    Bob Dole John McCain, Mitt Romney; all as exciting as watching grass grow.

    A candidate must first actually stand for something. (besides caving in to Liberals) Secondly, he must excite and motivate people.
    Last, sadly, he should be attractive. Those of us who spend our free time studying and discussing politics are, for the most part beyond such shallowness, but 70% of voters could not name 2 Supreme Court Justices or the Speaker of the House, or even their own US Representative.

    Marco Rubio will be a slam dunk in 2016.

    To Ernie S: Rubio is far from a slam dunk. He has a constitutional eligibility problem. A vote for Rubio (or Jindal) is the same as saying Hussein was eligible. Notice that neither Rubio or Jindal ever stated their views on the Eligibility Clause in the Constitution.

    Rubio is a senator. Enough said on that score.

    The media loves him. That, in itself, disqualifies him for me.

    More importantly, Rubio has never stated his position on US membership in the UN; global government, or on America’s absolute sovereignty.

    Bottom line: I can’t see how he is any different than a global government quisling selling the crap that it is America’s duty to save the world. Move the cursor to 10 minutes and listen very carefully to the things he says in his first floor speech:


    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=0iNk_J3kxAY]Senator Marco Rubio's Maiden Floor Speech - YouTube[/ame]​

    I’d like to hear Rubio say America’s independence is the only way the world will change for the better. Sovereignty that inspires imitation —— not sovereignty guarantied by an International organization because the things our federal government did to freedoms in this country is the framework the New World Order crowd is building on. Rubio says things that makes me believe he is one of them.
