    If he makes the republican nomination process in 2016, i'll strongly consider voting for him, if Hillary doesnt run even then I'll consider it.

    If Paul had remained an independent or even a libertarian, I might give him more consideration. But he sold his soul to the GOP and I just don't trust them anymore.

    He's much better than his pop. That's for sure.

    As for Rand, I'll give him a look. And Red, you know why he did that. You can't win as an independent or libertarian so while you would have given him a look (I would have too), no one else would.

    I would at least give Rand a fair look.

    OK, let us look. Who will make a case for Rand?

    Thought you was a moderate?

    Thought you could see to the values?

    Thought you didn't walk a party line?


    So because of his label, he holds no merit?

    Its not about that. You wrote him off because of the "R" next to his name.


    That should tell everyone here all they need to know about your opinions.

    I'm certainly not the one to make his case but I would be interested to hear it.

    Not really. I share Red's distrust of the Republican party and you should too.
