    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.
    Just because you read it that way doesn't mean that's what it says.

    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.
