@Tncdel @Bob_In_Boston @JennieWalsh @DanaPreston Actually I'm probably twice as conservative as you are, but the problem is you don't understand what it means to be a conservative. Being conservative is about "conserving"the amount of interference from the government. The Government should not be involved in marriage whatsoever - marriage is a religious sacrament and has nothing to do with government. That's why it's not in the constitution whatsoever. If you can find a church that will marry you, then you get married - it's none of the governments business.
As for immigration, I always have to laugh whenever I hear people complain about it when WE were the ones who came here and stole all the land from the native Americans. Wanna have tight borders? Kick every non-native-American person out. Otherwise, just shut up about it, because this country was literally FOUNDED by immigrants. It's so pathetic when people say "OK, I'm here, so now I don't want any MORE immigrants!" What we should be talking about is instituting the Fair Tax, so everyone, whether they are a citizen, an illegal immigrant, or a drug dealer, pays the same taxes for what they buy. The current tax system is 100% broken, that's why it doesn't work for illegal immigrants and people who get their money illegally.
But saying that Gary Johnson is some sort of "plant" for the Liberals is just ridiculous. Look at his actual voting record - he's not a religious conservative, but he's as Libertarian as anyone!

@Tncdel @JennieWalsh @DanaPreston That's the lamest slam against Gary Johnson I've ever seen! LOL There's nothing at all wrong with Gary Johnson - he was a hell of a candidate - 10x as qualified as any other GOP candidate except Ron Paul.
Marriage isn't mentioned once in the constitution - it's a religious ceremony and has nothing to do with government. The only thing Government should be involved in one way or another is "civil unions", so if you have an opinion about that, then feel free to express it, but don't try and claim that the constitution somehow endorses heterosexual marriage - it doesn't.

I think governor Perry's veto was the wrong call. Ever since the "Citizens United" decision, the political pull of wealthy people and corporations has gotten way out of control. I'm all for putting $$$ limits on contributions, and disallowing ANY corporate donations, so that everyone gets a fair say in who gets elected, and what legislation gets passed. If people want to raise money, then they will have to rally enough individuals to raise the amount they are looking for, rather than just finding one wealthy jackass like Bloomberg to finance their campaigns or advertising.

@tygerpaw25a @kayepope Of course Scott Brown had to go out of state to get money! How is a Republican leaning Independent going to get money in the land of Liberals, Taxachusetts?

@truthbeknown Look at Rand Paul, Mike Lee and Justin Amash too. Don't just read news articles on them, actually look at how they vote and listen to their speeches. There ARE good people in Congress, they are just not talked about very much because they threaten the old boy's network currently in place.
6 months, 3 weeks ago on Ted Cruz: "I Don't Trust Republicans."
@Bill Senior You are incredibly gullible if you think there was ANY difference between liberal Romney and liberal Obama. For example while Romney said he was a lifetime member of the NRA and was pro gun, take a good look at the gun laws in Massachusetts that Romney signed into law during his administration. They are the worst in the country behind New York and California!
If you believe one thing that came out of Romney's mouth then it proves that you are too gullible to be voting!
Ted Cruz is amazing, but unfortunately I don't think he's eligible to be the POTUS or VP. And he's doing such a good job in Congress, keeping the worst ones like Feinstein and McCain in check that we should probably leave him there.
I could care less about Rubio, because he's proven himself to not be a consistent friend of the Tea Party that he keeps claiming to be a part of.
It's Rand Paul that I think has a true chance to win the presidency in 2016. Rand has done a good job acting like a conservative without crowing about it, so I think there are plenty of Independents and even some Democrats who would vote for him. Especially since he's taken such a stand for civil liberties and the Constitution. He's like his father in that respect - while Democrats would never vote for a creep like Romney or McCain, who are loud and vocal in their RINOism, Rand really makes people feel like he's fighting for THEM, not some political party. That's what gives him the ability to win.
@JohnAdams69 @thesharpenedpen @Miller51550 It's pretty pitiful when someone is so lonely that they resort to correcting other people's posts on a website. The point of posting in a comments section is to communicate a point, and if you honestly think people wouldn't know what thesharpenedpen was trying say because he said "hung" instead of "hanged", then you should put on your helmet because the short bus is almost there to pick you up for school.

And that there is an example of "Irony". (but not "capitalization")
@johnboy4546 Boy do I hope Rand gets nominated in 2016 instead of Rubio... Rubio is just another RINO and I can't figure out why people keep talking about him as a "Tea Party" guy when he's just a go-along-to-get-along establishment follower!
@wigswest Totally agreed - the best thing that could happen for states rights is for some DEA guys to get thrown in jail for attempting to arrest someone in an MJ-friendly state, bringing the whole "federal authority" thing to a head.
The Federal government has ZERO authority to regulate drugs, and it's about time someone called them on it.

@DarrellGriffin @DocBarry1 That's baloney - if we get the right third party candidate, they'll be able to pull as many people from the Dems as the Republicans. For some reason people assume that third parties only pull from the GOP, but that's absolutely not true, and that kind of thinking is why we got Romney (who nobody really liked) instead of Ron Paul who *destroyed* Romney among independents, young voters, and even pulled in a significant number of Democrats. I think in the 2012 New Hampshire primary Ron Paul pulled in a high percentage of write-in votes in the Democratic primary!
The votes are there, we just need to stop letting the NeoCons convince us that the only way to win is to nominate crappy moderate candidates who don't appeal to anyone except for other NeoCons.
Even if you're right and a third party splits the party, the NeoCons need to realize that someone like me is just NOT going to vote for a liberal candidate like Mitt Romney. I live in Massachusetts, so I know how bad Romney was, and I'm sure people in Arizona were saying the same thing about Lame McCain. If you pick crappy candidates and don't listen to the grass roots who want a change, then you'll never win elections - it's that simple. We are done with the RINOs and want Liberty candidates, and all the talk about how "extreme" the tea party is isn't going to make us want to vote for your crappy candidates.

Technically OUR country was founded by a bunch of people who just wanted to be left alone, and wanted the absolute MINIMUM amount of government possible. They wanted no standing armies, they wanted to stick ONLY to defense of our borders (no foreign offensives) and they wanted people to take responsibility for themselves.
So pretty much our founding fathers were Libertarians.

@stage9 @SheerPolitics Complete and utter crap. Libertarians treat adults like adults - you can make your own decisions and suffer the consequences of those decisions. Both Liberals and Conservatives want to control what everyone ELSE does instead of concentrating on doing the right thing themselves.
@Ripbrood @stage9 You're exactly right - make the government only acknowledge "civil unions" for legal rights. If you can find a church somewhere to call you "married" then more power to you, but that has nothing to do with the government.
@stage9 @plasticman2000 No, rational people are NOT afraid of a plant. Thomas Jefferson and George Washington grew weed, traded strains, and gave each other pipes. The only people who are afraid of it are the people who aren't smart enough to see through the propaganda.
@MichaelDontigney @stage9 @SheerPolitics Exactly. Any so-called conservative who voted for Romney should no longer be allowed to call themselves conservative.
@stage9 @SheerPolitics Actually it's exactly the opposite. People who would do something just because their friends are doing it are the cultish ones. Whether you're talking about Democrats or Republicans, they would both cut off their nose to spite their face if they thought it would hurt the other party. It's the Libertarians who believe instead in the power of the individual and that good in society comes from people, not from government.
@SheerPolitics @Bob_In_Boston Yeah, let me guess - you consider it "patriotic" to believe that nothing the country does is ever wrong, and speaking out against things we do is unpatriotic. It's people like you who make the rest of the world hate America. We do *plenty* of evil stuff, and it's the responsibility of the citizens to fix it, because we elected the politicians who do the evil things.
@notsofastthere @Bob_In_Boston @SheerPolitics Yeah, sorry, I didn't vote for them. Unfortunately the GOP leadership here in Massachusetts is borderline retarded, so we never win any elections and only have 11% enrollment. We just elected a new chairwomen so hopefully she can improve things. Another huge issue here in Mass is our chief counsel should be in jail - he's so slimy that he makes you want to leave the party.
