re: Would you vote for a Paul/Booker ticket running as independants?
Posted by a want on 8/1 at 10:44 am
It's going to be interesting to see what comes out of the current GOP schism. Tea Party loves Ted Cruz, but the establishment hates his guts. You've got Jeb Bush, Chris Christie or Perry who are establishment guys but loathed by Tea Party..... I don't know, maybe Rand can do it - it's just a long, l...

I think he's a doofus, but he may very well get it. He checks a lot of boxes for the GOP. He's good looking, talks tough. He'll recover from "oops" - the question is will he have another "oops" moment. Honestly, I 'm afraid Rand is going to gaffe b/c he's an off-the-cuff kind of guy. This is wha...

If children who are consistently "unavailable to learn" were simply kicked out of school, a lot of the problems would be solved. Parents who do care, work to make sure their kid is available. Parents who dont....sorry, we will always need ditch diggers. Plus, the classroom experience impro...

I think this is why so many consume partisan news. You can always be right if you read the Blaze, WND or Daily Kos or whatever the right and left wing web sites are. When a person identifies heavily with being conservative or liberal, the ego doesn't like it when it's told it's wrong. It will fi...
