Pretty much anyone who isn't Hillary. I would even vote for Ann Coulter.

I was about to ask why, and then I remembered that Coulter is a professional troll, so probably a sort of hero to you :P

he's the real deal.... and didn't have to go on a "listening tour" to know what America is thinking.

Ron Paul was my choice for president, butr I doubt he will run again. This will be an interesting race.

I have my doubts about him, but I'm not totally against voting for him. My main objection to Rand is that he supported statist Mitt Romney over libertarian Ron Paul.

As of those who are running so far, I think I am most aligned with Hillary, which is kind of sad because I wish there were people who excited me more. But I agree with most of what she has to say.

Ted Cruz is my favorite for amusement. But the idea of him being president makes me really scared because we would all die.

How would we all die? Is he going to start a nuclear war?

Well, when I said that about Ted Cruz, it was a joke. However, the thing he prides himself on most is that he basically never changes his opinion on anything. This inability to find compromise, or if he's wrong, listen to reason, is incredibly frightening to me. He is also a global warming denier, which was the crux of my joke: he's going to do things that will literally end the world sooner.

I think Marco Rubio is the most earnest and genuine of the pack. But he is perceived as too inexperienced. Just a Jr. Senator. Hmmm

Jeb Bush is not exciting or moving or at all charismatic, but is seen as competent. His big negative is Bush and sounding canned.

Huckabee is by far the most underrated. He is experienced and intelligent. With a strong set of values to guide himself as well as a country. His appeal is to narrow to win a general election.

Cruz is right about what we need to focus on as a nation, but his appeal is again to much to the right to get serious support from the whole party.

Scott Walker could be a very effective president and move us back to fiscal sanity, and is polling strongly.

Any of these would best Hillary in a debate or in practice, but maybe not an election. The toughest thing they all would face is not Hillary, Warren or Bidon, but the the liberal media poised to attack anyone who poses a threat to liberals.

The biggest thing Republicans have in their favor is Obama Backlash, which in the last two midterms has given them the Congress, and could well give them the WH next.

Huckabee is either nuts or an act. I am pretty sure he is only running to garner publicity for his next book/job.

Walker has no idea how to make policy or lead. He is also kind of extremist and I don't mean very conservative.

Cruz is just Cruz.

None of those three can beat Hilary in a debate. The only one with a chance would be Rubio. He actually understands policy and legislative consequences. He is not charismatic enough to win a debate (or the Primary/General), but he is smart enough.

"Obama Backlash" is just spin. You should probably look up midterm election trends regarding the executive office. History and data trumps all punditry.

Condomman has a good view on health so he could take position as like the first lady but as president Jeb Bush he did well as Govenor and by some people known as the trustworthy Bush not saying too much in some peoples eyes but still

Ted Cruz, mostly because of the Dr. Seuss incident but also because he plans to repeal Obamacare, abolish the IRS, and actually enforce immigration laws.

1 point

Not a one of them is to my liking, but when forced to choose in the upcoming elections my vote will likely cast to the leading Democratic candidate because their "more of the same" offering will be slightly more to my benefit and marginally less detrimental than what I would get voting the other way.

Honestly, Clinton and Romney are our leading options? We should definitely expect great things come 2016... good grief.

Rand Paul is my only mainstream candidate because he claims big tax relief and deficit reduction even though he is Tea Party.

My real favorite is Gary Johnson because he is a true libertarian candidate.

Out of curiosity, how do you believe that Rand Paul would be able to accomplish that realistically?

1. Cut Military Spending

2. Cut Corporate Welfare

3. Reform Entitlement Programs

4. Eliminate IRS, simplify tax code

5. Eliminate Departments

Wakka Flakka is truly the best presidential candidate due to his policies.

Scott Walker looks best. He's capable of effective fiscal reform and would be much tougher and more effective in foreign policy matters than Obama.

Ben Carson. The only sane and calm guy in this race. America needs a healer now.

The things Ben Carson says are not sane, nor do they indicate any qualifications for the job.

Not sane? Come on.

Try to discuss and make some suggestions instead of categorical denial.

Sanders excites me the most, but.Clinton is a close second. While neither is perfect, América can't afford another conservative. We need to continue the forward progress, not go backwards.

1 point

Rand Paul. For freedom, liberty, and justice! Seriously though. Out of all these candidates I see Rand Paul most capable for the job and the best when it comes to just exercising common sense.

0 points

Instead of rhetoric, can you provide specific reasons why you believe Rand Paul is the best?

Define president? Then define person? Define favorite? Define the word "it"?

Bernie Sanders and I get the feeling many will vote for him , that is if Hillary doesn't steal the nomination . If so I will be voting for the independent .

1 point

In my opinion, (we are all entitled to our own) Clinton will be the successor to President Obama and his so far successful run.

So far, Hillary is my favorite candidate but I will vote for any Democrat who gets the Presidential Nomination.

My favorite candidate is anyone, absolutely anyone but these extremist Democrat's taking over the Democrat party.

RINO Republicans are not much better than Democrats because they have lost all back bone to stop these Liberal extremists. Our leaders are now being elected by those who want free stuff from politicians, not for what is best for America.

We need to give Conservatives a chance becuase they are the only ones with common sense love for the greatness of America and our freedoms. They simply believe in cutting our debt before it is too late, restoring sanity to our freedoms, bringing back a discussion over personal responsibility for one's actions in life and not just giving able bodied people careers on welfare while asking for nothing in return.

Our culture is being destroyed by the broken families and Conservtives understand the importance of talking about it in the same way that people speak out over the dangers of smoking, etc. Why do you care so little for our children. Why won't you fight for their right to have a mother and father supporting them instead of a cold corrupt Government.

Like always, you present no content or opinions, just yelling at people.

Not really, they are just less extreme than you.

Some Conservatives have that, some don't. Some Liberals have that, some don't. Enough of your divisiveness!

. They simply believe in cutting our debt before it is too late

Then why don't past Republican administrations show that? They have been worse with adding to the debt (proportionally) than Democrats, historically.

restoring sanity to our freedoms

Except the ones they don't like.

bringing back a discussion over personal responsibility for one's actions in life and not just giving able bodied people careers on welfare while asking for nothing in return.

Many on the left, including myself, believe people on welfare should have to work while receiving it, and most do.

Our culture is being destroyed by the broken families

Our culture is being destroyed? Then why is violence and poverty down, education up, etc.?

Conservatives understand the importance of talking about it in the same way that people speak out over the dangers of smoking, etc. Why do you care so little for our children. Why won't you fight for their right to have a mother and father supporting them instead of a cold corrupt Government.

That is not a sane way to speak about the issue. In fact, it is a dishonest way to speak about the issue. Liberals don't want the government to have to care for people, they simply believe the government should assist when necessary. How do you expect people to take you seriously when you won't even discuss the issues honestly?

Actually his statement referred to liberal extremists who have taken over the democratic party. And YOU made no mention of that in your dispute.

Not really, they are just less extreme than you.

A point was made that RINO's are abandoning conservative republican ideology. Your dispute again ignores his point.

Some Conservatives have that, some don't. Some Liberals have that, some don't. Enough of your divisiveness

The statement referred to conservative ideology as being the return path back to America's greatness. You dispute by saying that some liberals have conservative ideology???

Then why don't past Republican administrations show that? They have been worse with adding to the debt (proportionally) than Democrats, historically.

Simply incorrect. NO previous administration has out spent Obama.

Then why is violence and poverty down, education up

Actually poverty in NOT down and education is NOT up.
