<quoted text>That's the point. Insurance companies have been robbing their customers for decades and Obamacare did nothing to reign in those costs. That would have been real reform if they could have created larger insurance pools that would have resulted in more competition and lower costs. It would also have been nice if they made drug companies compete which would have resulted in lower prices but they didn't do that either. Obamacare is a joke that protects price gouging monopolies along with its many other negative affects.
Actually it opens up the door for 40 million uninsured Americans. Those insurance companies will compete for these Americans. They will lower their price to get these Americans. 40 millions people to insure and they will off to the races.

Actually we hate them. We want to wipe out the Muslim terrorists just as much as you do. We just don't hate American Muslims. I don't believe what they believe. But under the 1st Amendment they have the right to believe whatever they want.

Everyone I talk to wants Rand Paul in 2016. He is conservative, can't be demonized, because he is exactly what Americans want, a leader. They are laughing to think the people would let the Democrats choose their candidate. It is probably because the Democrats have to defend Obamacare, and the Benghazi babe. They will spend all their time trying to explain what went wrong with both. We'll have pictures of Ambassador Stevens everywhere, along with pictures of the other 3 dead Americans from the Benghazi massacre. And pictures of people who died awaiting medical care under Obamacare's rationing. This next election is very important. We cannot leave anything out of the campaign.
Rand Paul?

Oh I'd LOVE to see that nutjob get the GOPasaur nomination. Hillary will win every electoral vote in every state!

Who ever the Republicans choose they will offer more then a a washed up old hag, and a guy with a drinking problem. Maybe Bloomberg will buy the nomination for himself, or there is that other guy shacked up in the N Y State House, Cuomo. OMG, what if we had to choose some one with morals for a change.

Yes.

Remember 50% of eligible voters don't vote AT ALL.

Obama lost Mississippi by only 150,000 votes in 2012, and there over over 1 million eligible voters who didn't vote AT ALL.

The possibility of a Rand Paul presidency would bring out enough of those people even in Alabama & Utah etc for Hillary to win the state.

That's great for the price gouging insurance companies. 40 million customers at the same prices, thanks to corrupt businesses best friend, Barack Obama.

Yes.

Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Michelle Bachmann, etc, etc.

They're all nuttier than a fruitcake and if any of them should win the GOPasaur nomination I think we'll see the highest voter turnout in American history to ensure their defeat.

Think "legitimate rape" times 1000!
