    I'm curious @GrassrootsConservative, why you think John McCain is a libertarian old fart? He came off as very interventionist to me, and he even supported giving people a tax credit to pay for health insurance.
    Rand's too young as his father's too old.

    McCain, a libertarian!?!?!?! He's a moderate. Palin was somewhat tea party libertarian.

    That's what I thought about McCain, but I'm still awaiting some reason why GRC thinks he's libertarian.

    Also, Rand's only two years younger than our current President, and I think he'd do a much better job. I really want to support candidates who will speak openly against the NDAA and drones though, so that's part of my reason for liking him.

    Maybe he meant McCain's liberal. :-D

    Our current prez is too young and inexperienced, among other things.

    Sorry, I meant progressive, actually. Libertarian would be a godsend and I had it on my mind because I was originally going to talk about Rand Paul.

    That makes sense. I'm not sure I'd put him the progressive camp, but he wasn't really a conservative either. Like Chris said, moderate is probably the best readily available description of McCain's 2008 politics.

    IMHO he's a RINO (Republican In Name Only) and really that's the way most conservatives I know described him.


    But, like Romney, it's always been anyone but Obama. Obama is the great deceiver. He's a silver-tongued serpent and he's very good at persuading the ignorant.

    Rubio fails the Constitutional eligibility test. Of course that test will be enforced against a Republican.

    Forget Christie. Too many feel he stabbed the party in the back at the most inopportune moment. Plus he is extremely unattractive physically. Even though there are a lot of fat people in America, fattest country in the world, it is still looked down on.
