My wife wouldn't vote for Beiber, not in a million plus years.

Rubio, on the other hand, she would vote for based upon appearance alone, as would my Mom, and women make up over half the electorate now.

My point, Rand Paul, while likeable guy in my book, just doesn't factor for women.

I don't think many women think all that highly of Hillary, either, but who knows. The Clinton's are capable of extreme makeovers. lol

That was strange synchronicity! We typed some of the same things at the same time. :w00t:

There is one reality with billions of versions.

George P. Bush is the Republican secret weapon which might be unveiled for national 2020 elections. Keep an eye on Texas for now.

No, Mamma said that there would be no more Bush's running for President, and I take her at her word for that. This was said to a reporter at the grand opening of the Bush Library in Dallas.

The older she gets, the more I like her.

We don't live in a monarchy, come on! She understand this better than anybody, and even she is rejecting the idea. Thunderous applause for Momma Bush.

As long as she's alive, and that should be a while, I suspect, it ain't happening.

Wow nice comment on what you think of the women in your lives that you think they'd vote for a candidate based on looks. As a woman I don't care about looks I care about if they have common sense and and intelligence. What is this 1920, women are not some fan waving hormonal airheads.

“The beauty of religious mania is that it has the power to explain everything. Once God (or Satan) is accepted as the first cause of everything which happens in the mortal world, nothing is left to chance …or change... logic can be happily tossed out the window. Religious mania is one of the few infallible ways of responding to the worlds vagaries, because it totally eliminates pure accident. To the true religious maniac, it’s ALL on purpose” – Stephen King, The Stand

That was noted too but decided against pointing it since it would draw away from the Rand Paul and Christian fundamentalist connection and the fact that, "Rand Paul doesn’t care about the persecution of gays and lesbians, or of transgenders. He doesn’t care about the persecution of Pagans or secularists or of atheists. He doesn’t care about anyone but Christians."

Yet Rand Paul, singularly-minded, only decides one group is worthy of protection and even puts it in terms of a conspiracy theory-like "war against Christians":


Quote

“There is a war on Christianity,” he told his audience, well ahead of the Christmas season. “Not just from liberal elites here at home, but worldwide.”

*snip*

By campaigning against the First Amendment, Rand Paul has shown himself to be completely unsuitable for high office. His job is to represent everyone in his district, not only Evangelical Christians. His job as president would be to represent the interests of ALL Americans, not only Evangelical Christians.

http://www.politicus...christians.html

It all points out the hypocrisy in the libertarian view that we should not be dictated by others how to live yet their prime candidate supports Christians who would do exactly that and are doing exactly that in all these states that they are sabotaging women's health clinics.

It also points out the perversion of the modern libertarians who would consider such actions as "inclusion and acceptance".

Rand Paul's directive is inclusion and acceptance

Of course the Republican and now libertarian "war against women" is vile but did not want to point out the chauvinistic claim that "women will vote for the handsome candidate", as if they cannot understand the issues and vote based on that, because it could derail the thread into further feminist bashing as was done on the Hillary thread.

Still not going to mind at all that you pointed it out here because it was uneasy to read that and my feelings were mixed on whether to point it out or not so glad you did in the end.

Is this true, does this man Rand Paul only look out for Christians and only Christians?    IF this is true, ( and I mean IF, because I don't know him or anything about him )  then he would have no business running for office..  It's also not a smart thing to do if you are looking the vote from  EVERY US citizen..  All it may give you is the Christian vote, and even then, some of the christians might not like his policies and so on...    

I think politicians shoot themselves in the foot and make it worse for themselves  if they show discriminations of any kind towards any group of people.. Be it men, women, race, religion, anything.. If you only show favour for your own kind, you leave space to discriminate, and it can cost you an election...

Seems to me the liberals and the mainstream media are scared of Rand Paul, so they are trying their best to discredit him.... Business as usual....

Discredit him how? By enlightening people about who he has now chose to align himself with and the things they believe and the agenda they have? I don't see that as discrediting him as much as informing people about the company he chooses to keep.

And Obama hung around radical preachers, yet no one cared about that....

By the way, how do you know any of this is true? Did it ever occur to you that the talking heads might be lieing?

Christian Broadcasting Network, which also hosts Pat Robertson's 700 Club, has photos on their website of Rand Paul speaking at this event.


Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Praying for Spiritual Revival In America

Quote

It was a sight to behold inside a conference ballroom at the downtown Marriott hotel in Des Moines, Iowa, as hundreds of Iowa pastors called out to God and prayed over two U.S. senators, both of whom seem interested in running for president of the United States.

Sen. Ted Cruz and Sen. Rand Paul came to Iowa Friday to speak at this Pastors and Pews event, organized by influential evangelical political operative David Lane. The Brody File got an up close look and access to the private event. We will be posting compelling video early next week. For now, we are releasing a few pictures from the event.
