dumbass recently placed 2nd in a local hot wings-eating contest
Default New Image of the Republican Party????

From what I've seen so far I could get behind this guy and I don't think I'd be alone.

Carson/Rubio 2016 and 20. Than Rubio/someone else with a brain in 2024 and '28, because we'd be on the road back to being the great country we once were.

Rubio is Presidential material.

I agree that Ben Carson needs to be the front runner in 2016. I'm a little on the fence lately with Rubio. I would much prefer to see someone like Rand Paul as a VP possibility.

Personally would prefer Rand Paul but I believe he has too much baggage inherited from his father to be elected.

I too would love to see Rand Paul as the Republican nominee. He has considerably LESS appeal to swing voters than did Romney. I don't care who the democratic nominee is - he/she would beat Paul by 10% points. Christie is the Republican who most scares me. I think he would be really tough to beat. Luckily, there is little chance he could make it through the primary.

I agree that it could definitely be a str***le. We need more like him in government who are guided by the Constitution and not by party lines. I'm hoping that Ben Carson has a good understanding of its importance.......as he definitely has all of the other traits that would make a great POTUS.

I agree I'd definitely vote for the lil freak in a primary. He would be my candidate of choice...... For the Republicians!

I love your "ideas" on the Constitution. It's a living evolving document. That's why amendments were added and allowed for. Times change and this is not the same world anymore. These people do not want to "uphold" our constitution they want to misenterpet in order to shove their insane ideas down the gullible throats of morons like you and your buddies.

You're on the right track when you said that amendments were added and allowed for. There is a process for adding amendments and it is a little more entailed than a professor deciding what he likes and what he doesn't. I haven't heard anything about a proposal to add another amendment, have you??
