    Who is "we" and who is "you"? Romney and Obama are both fascists. I wasn't calling you anything. I don't think you're a fascist, though I think sometimes you're fooled into supporting fascist candidates or parties, as are most Americans. That's what happens when your choice is between two fascists.

As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    I'm not going to respond to any more of your posts in the topic, as you continue to post such inane ramblings. Have fun.

    I know you weren't calling me anything. But the attempt to distance yourself from "failure Obama" is most telling when you call him a fascist.

    Why would I need to distance myself from someone I never voted for? I voted Libertarian in 2008 and 2012.

    That's what I thought.

    You see, it doesn't matter what a politician purports to believe.

    I think it is unfortunate for Republicans that Christy is turning out to be so much trouble. He was their best shot.

    Rand Paul? If Rand Paul can win in 2016, then 2016 will be a situation in which any generic Republican can win. Rand Paul is not charismatic, does not have one hint of populist appeal in his positions, and is unignorable an asshole at all times he is on screen. We'll see if things like the plagiarism issue multiply to a number where it actually becomes damaging. Right now, that single instance is a strike against him but nothing serious.

    I think Rand Paul is ideologically appealing to certain people, the kind of people who think those who are ideologically appealing will be political viable. You know, people like the ones who supported his dad.

    Hillary is a lock.

    Rand has an excellent chance of winning at least three of the first four primaries/caucuses as he already has a turn-key political machine in all those states built by his father. If he can do that then he should also be able to gain a big fundraising boost as the deep pockets will start to take him seriously which will in turn give him a better shot against a better funded candidate like a Jeb Bush. I still wouldn't be surprised to see him blow off races with really large media markets like Florida. It will be tight, but I do think Rand will pull it out.

    I said Romney and Obama are fascists, not socialists. Do you have reading comprehension issues? Or are you just trolling?
