@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.

@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.
@DeborahWells Love the McCain reference - perfect way to slip it in too!
"Stand with Rand" has legs - we have to make sure we keep that going! Much more meaningful then "Hope and Change", because Rand has already "stood" for us on numerous occassions!
@SheerPolitics That's bull - despite all the saber rattling about how bad it will be when other countries get nuclear weapons, only one evil country has ever used them.. and it's the United States.
@CaseyGeorge He just did!
@StephenSmith1 @Patrick Henry I know it was naive of me, but I was hoping that Texas would throw the TSA agents in jail for sexual assault, the same way you would anyone else who touched your junk without permission. But alas, like I said, Perry didn't have the 'nads to go through with it once the FAA said they would close down the airspace over Texas if they didn't back down. I would have called their bluff - there is no way the FAA could do that for more than a couple of days without HUGE repercussions from business who just needed to get there - the special interests would actually do some good for once!

@Patrick Henry @StephenSmith1 I've seen this misrepresented on a BUNCH of different websites and the Daily Show - it's not that a certain number of STATES have talked about succession, it's that some PEOPLE within those states have started petitions for succession. Those are two wildly different things as far as I'm concerned. If a state were to actually start preparing for succession that would be news. This? Not so much...
PS: I still be Texas will be first, but if Perry couldn't even hold his stones when he threatened to throw the TSA out, I don't see how he would stand up to the Feds on complete succession!
@StephenSmith1 @West Texan You are right on target - the answer isn't Republicans OR Democrats. The answer is finding good candidates (whatever letter they have after their name) and electing them to office. How do you determine who is a good candidate? Research how they voted when nobody was watching, and see if it lines up with their rhetoric. If what they say and what they actually did doesn't match (like Romney) then you know you can't trust them - they are immediately taken out of consideration. That's why Romney, Santorum and Gingrich were all non-starters as far as I'm concerned.
Then once you've taken the liars out, look for someone who agrees with your political philosophies. This isn't necessarily simple - for example there were votes that Congressman Ron Paul took during his 30+ years in office that I thought I didn't agree with initially, but once I read the actual content of the bills he was voting on, in every instance I understood why he voted the way he did, and most of the time, once I understood what was at stake, I agreed with him. That's what made Ron Paul the best candidate for me, and I'm doubly disappointed for him being cheated out of the nomination by the Romney campaign, as well as the fact that he's retiring from Congress this year. But it's our responsibility as Americans to find more good candidates and vote them into office!
