    I would certainly hope Ron Paul would be able to win the election; America doesn't need another 'neo-conservative' to be President, like Bush-Cheney, or Romney, Santorum, Gingrich, or anyother Rockefeller Republican (which is what we have had since 1988)>

    There is no difference between the establishment candidates. Whether its Obama or Romney there will be increased government spending and a growth of government in general. We need to reduce spending, limit the government, and bring our troops back from other countries where we do not belong. Our military is suppose to protect our borders and they cannot do that while occupying over 100 countries? RON PAUL 2012!!

    I refuse to vote for the RINO, Mitt Romney, just to remove Obama from office as there is no difference between the two.

    None of the above is actually the right answer. Obama is seriously flawed, but these guys are either losers or wing nuts, and with the exception of Ron Paul they are hypocrites as well. A pox on all their houses( especially all of Romney's).

    I don't think any of these Republicans can. They are too much into religion, birth control and women's health issues and never really say what they are going to do to turn the economic crisis around.

    Let's look at the facts



    FACT: Newt Gingrich has a potato for a head and Americans will never elect a man like that.



    FACT: Ron Paul seems to think that you can run America as if its a small town, he is arguably the most intelligent or at the very least the one who understands the most about the economy but he is either unaware or simply doesn't care about the human pain, grief, and misery that his foreign and domestic economic policies would incur



    FACT: Romney has all the personality of beige soap dish, or a small kitchen appliance.



    FACT: Either rightly or wrongly so, Santorum's name has been connected with fecal matter and he's single handedly managed to alienate 98 % of women voters



    Romney The Robot has the best chance of beating Obama, but conservatives actually believe otherwise, they seem at this point to believe that Santorum is the guy, I actually want the one that the majority of the Republicans sincerely want. The truth is none of them are going to beat Obama but I just don't feel like listening to them cry for the next 4 years about how the liberal media chose their candidate for them and that this is the reason why they lost in 2012. But, I know I will have to suffer from their tears of sadness, and their wailing and gnashing of teeth...alas, such is life.

    I picked Paul. But really NONE of them has a chance. I've talked with a lot of conservatives, people who were really gung ho on getting Obama out of office in November, and now they've basically conceded the election. They're pretty disgusted with the Republicans that are running, "A bunch of dweebs", one business owner said. Paul has the best platform to beat Obama but there's almost no way the Republican party will allow him to win.

    First of all, I could defeat Obama. Too bad my birth certificate clearly stated I was born in Russia.

    I like Ron Paul's ideas, his record and his personality. But I think any of GOP candidates could easily give Obama a good fight and win in the end. Only time will tell.

    Actually none of them. No candidate is good enough to replace Obama and Obama isn't good enough to run this country. I actually feel bad for the next election, I have no hope of a good leader actually leading America. I am not a person that quickly believes empty promises.

    Santorum would have the Pope running this country. We already have six Catholics on the Supreme Court; we do not need any more influence from them! The Court should be balanced. If we let devout Catholics get away with it, they would even outlaw contraceptives! Then watch how many more we would have on welfare and food stamps!

    Oh can I change it to Santorum.. he will make sure there is no separation between church and state (this is a good thing?) Good bye abortion, hello let the government tell a woman what to do with her body (can we get rid of a womans right to vote?).. He is for a federal marriage amendment? (Well, hopefully he will make sure blacks and interracial marriages are illegal)..
    Reinstate don't ask don't tell. That is smart (those damn gays might infect us)....

    We should all be FREE, to live by CHRISTIAN law.. oh great...

    Well said! People in American need to learn more about the Middle-Ages when the Catholics and Protestants were burning one-another alive at the stake! (with no mushrooms and gravey!) When they weren't killing one-another, they would pounce on a Jewish family and beat them all to death! Martin Luther, the father of Protestantism and the Lutheran Church wanted eGermany rid of the Jews, their temples burned to the ground, their possessions confiscated, and the ran out of town! Adolf Hitler came around some three-hundred year or so later and carried out Luther's desires. (But I am not sure that he knew about Luther's desired, or just did it on his own. (Hitler was baptised and raised in the Catholc Church, and one time expressed his desire to become a priest!) High School History classes hide all of this from us!

    When Newt was Speaker of the House, he tried to have Clinton removed from office for doing what Newt, himself, was doing. Newt tried to have his kids serve divorce papers on his wife while she was dying in the hospital. They told him to shove it! Newt later married his household employee, and then divorced her an married another one!
    Newt and David Duke both forced the military into buying billions of dollars in hardware (ships, weapons, etc) that the military did not ask for and did not want? Why do such a stupid thing? In order to send (unnecessary) work to their home states in order to insure their reelection! We, the taxpayer, had to pay for that hardware, and, unknowingly, paid for Newt and Duke's reelection! Nice trick!

He will stop this expending frenzy that benefit the rich corporations, demise our economic and impoverish most Americans; debt is economic slavery and that is what Bush and Obama had done to millions of Americans; economic slaves, while they made their cronies rich and powerful.

    Well, tell us, just what is it that make's him best equipped? What universities did he graduate from? What was his major course of study? Did he study business, economics, government accounting, and governmental financial matters? Did he study geo-politics, georgraphy, and sociology of other countries? What prior jobs or businesses did he hold? We don't need anymore dummies. G.W. Bush had us in five wars: Afghanistan, Iraw, war on terror, war on drugs and war on our Southern border. During wars taxes have to be raised to pay for the war as we go along; else, our kids and gradkids have to pay for it --- maybe at a time when they are very busy paying for their own wars! G.W. not only did not raise taxes, he lowered them (on people who could afford to pay more)! Now, the present administration is stuck paying for those wars! Now, this country cannot afford any more wars!

    Even with "those wars", one of which all the Democrats say was legitimate, Barrack Obama has outspent and out deficited GWB!! Of course, he is "patriotic" for doing so, right?! When a Democrat does it, it is "always" because of his Republican predecessor. It is never because he is a spendaholic!!! It is never because he is seeking to buy votes with taxpayer money!
