If Paul wins in 2016 he will bring in enough Republicans to do whatever he wants. No more gridlock. Just the President calling the shots, and liberals going back under their beds for 8 years. Now if the Democrats could get something done between now,andthen it would be different,but they are stopped cold, at least for the next 2 years. So where's that gun ban boys,and girls?

this is a solid prediction:
Hillary & Julian Castro>>>>>> >>>>winners in 2016
Jeb Bush & Marco Rubio>>>>> >>>>>>losers in 2016
That's a possibility, but I think even those of us on the right are a little sick of the Bush family. Jeb is more conservative than his brother.

Hillary? I don't know about that. I think she would be the best the Democrats have to offer. Did you hear? Even though she's out of politics now, she endorsed gay marriage. I'm sure you're delighted about that.

Want to talk about a loser ticket? How about Biden-Clinton, or Clinton-Biden in 2016? Or Hillary, and Michelle? Next to that bunch Jeb Bush looks like a political genius.
Any ticket with a Clinton on it is a guaranteed winner !!!!

Shrub looks like a genius? Compared to you, yeah.

The GOP campaign for 2016 is starting early. Watch for the flavor of the week special to start soon. LOL Then some rich guy will tell them what they want to hear and buy them all off. Then they will lose AGAIN, this time to Hillary Clinton.

You are right. The Dem party is strong. Its coalition of voters is weak in that one faction will kill the other if the economy falls apart or revenues are reduced significantly. The Repub party is weak. But its coalition of voters is strong. They are more likely to work together during bad times. Thus many of the progressives will be running to Repub and even redneck areas to survive the violence.

Dream on. The economy is just STARTING to get better. Expect better days and prosperity for the next ten years. Even Republicans that hate President Obammy know that the best is yet to be. Ask the conservative Republican economist who predicted the crash of 2008, not the ignorant fools at C-PAC. The big tent of the Democrats keeps getting bigger and the marginalized group of frightwing zealots keeps getting smaller and more divided. Gerrymandering only goes so far. Look at the new Pope. The world is swinging toward the center from the far right days of the depths of the Bush debacle that ended in 2008.

Psssst, um, Paul won't even get the nomination, let alone elected.

You seem delirious.

Stopped cold? LOL

Half of Obamneycare hasn't even started yet, but it WILL. In fact, it will be getting bigger every year, long after President Obamney is out of office in 2016.

Then President Billary Clinton will oversee it for the following 8 years.

You may not have noticed, but the Democrats are tough as nails. The Republicants are dwindling and DEEPLY DIVIDED.

Worst of all for the poor Republicants is that too many Americans from all parties still REMEMBER the painful, deceitful, costly Bush debacle.

It's still way too soon to try to revise that history. Too many of us were WITNESSES.

So Billary endorses gay marriage and Ayn Rand Paul endorse a complete ban on abortion.

Hmmmm, who do you think knows what the majority of Americans want? LOL

It's a no-brainer when it comes to which party is on the wrong side of history.

The GOP should adopt the dodo bird as it's symbol, or better yet. How about the "bush". LOL

When we receive interest from the banks higher then the REAL inflation rate, that will be a start. Over four years of near zero rates. Sorry...major red flag. A biggie!

BINGO! We have a winner.

The logical solution is to require more bank collateral so the savings are worth more and those people get some interest on their savings. Banks use OUR deposits and OUR taxes to make money while at the same time they do not pay us interest or loan us money.

Moreover the banksters gamble with OUR deposits.

After churches that don't pay taxes, banks are this nation's sacred cow of deceit.

Good point. Now couple that with the cost of Commie Care over the next 10 years at (so far) 6.2 trillion dollars according to the CBO, and that should put us in a depression for sure. Good thing we'll have a Democrat president when the economy really hits the wall.

Blah, blah, blah. The exact same words that were spoken by the left before the 2010 elections where the people turned the leadership of Congress back to Republicans, and it's still Republican leadership today. Not to mention 30 of our 50 states elected Republicans to lead their states. Wishful thinking that the Republicans are gone forever.

I think everybody on the right is all uptight for nothing. Let's face it, the American electorate is ignorant. The last thing they consider is policies. This was obvious last election.

Americans vote for representatives like they vote for their favorite candidate on American Idol. How they talk, how they walk, how they dress, how well they speak. It's a popularity contest. The Dems happen to get their hand on a good BS artist like DumBama.

It will blow over. Nothing lasts forever. They can't keep putting out charismatic people out there every election. And if the economy is in the tank (which should start happening in 2014) then no Democrat has a chance at winning presidency.

Gerrymandering won't favor the GOP forever. The GOP has cancer. It's dying on it's own.
