can't be defended, I expected Christie because Trump values loyalty, but Cotton didn't do anything for him. for the cabinet would be ok, just to get him out of the senate would be ok. but if VP its Johnson for me
expansion of the patriot act is 1 vote shirt, and they are still trying. female draft registration is now more likely, and the Dems are not backing down on gun control as they did in the past. laws take time.
was watching Real Time, and the guest mentioned that she expects Trump to set up a news channel to rival Fox, and MSNBC.
This is also something that should be a Libertarian goal. consider the success Beck is having.
on a practical basis it has to be Trump because of the SCOTUS, Obamacare, and Obamatrade. a Trump win would leave 2020 open for Rand, esp if Newt is VP. a Hillary win would also be a Ryan win. and he would be the 2020 front runner. ballot access for the LP is determined by the vote for Governor in most states anyway. besides Trump is better than Romney, way better than Bush 43 or McCain. and Hillary is the worst Dem since 1964. she will expand SS, and push for forced national service. and probably pass these with RINO help.
do u think he has a chance? to carry even a few states? and throw to the house. if he gets into debates there is a chance. but Johnson is open borders, becoming more of Romney Republican than a Paul Republican. but this will hurt Johnson also. fear is a huge motivator. plus the NRA supporters would not vote for Weld, he wants assault weapons ban also.
this time the media is making much more of a big deal than they did with San Bernardino . news coverage will go on for days, 24/7. and their policy is pushing their message; Fox blaming Muslims, CNN blaming guns. Trump wins this issue. gun control is not popular after a few weeks.
but by 2020 the Pendulum will swing back again. people will get fed up with Trump (or Hillary)
I don't agree with the public reaction, but just watch the polls in the next week. Trump will play this card over and over to the White House. Trump and Hillary both have authoritarian tendencies but can you imagine how Hillary would play this against Rand had he won the nomination. 4 years of trump will leave 2020 open
I think this will also effect the VP choices, Christie far more likely now, unfortunate when a 73 year old Newt would be better. and Hillary might pick Petraeus instead of Warren
the events today have just elected Trump. no doubt unless he does something very stupid. and even then he will probably win.
and its probably a good thing. Hillary is more pro-war, pro-conscription, and would appoint a socialist SCOTUS.
the electoral college is rigged, and the GOP legislatures of OH, MI, VA, FL, WI, PA are throwing away 100 votes by continuing this statewide winner take all, instead of by CD (as NE and ME have done for decades)
but Trump, and only Trump can beat Hilary, who would be worse the Obama, much worse. she wants war, she wants a draft.
a draft is never popular. Nixon knew it, Reagan knew it. even Bush would not even think of one after 911. Rand has to be a leader in this. and act like the 2020 nominee, slowly. Goldwater did so in 1961-62, Nixon in 65.
even veterans don't want their sons and especially their daughters drafted.
