yet they keep winning elections.  I think it's because 51% of the USA is now liberal, sadly.

And get themselves into jobs they can't do.

Here is my dark horse pick as a candidate (note - I'm not saying nominee at this but that  I'm just saying I think he might run)



He'd make a great president. Only this time he could spend $10bil on a light rail system from the middle of no where in California to the middle of no where in the middle of the country....

Paul calls Clinton 'war hawk,' predicts her stance will scare off 2016 voters
Published August 24, 2014
FoxNews.com

Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul, in another sign he will run for president, called front-running, potential Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton a “war hawk” likely to scare 2016 voters who are tired of U.S. military intervention in the Middle East.

Paul, a leading anti-interventionist, predicted in an interview aired Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the 2016 White House race will be a "transformational election" if Democrats nominate "a war hawk like Hillary Clinton,” a former Obama administration secretary of State.

The Libertarian-mind Paul, a first-term senator, last year opposed President Obama's call for military action in Syria.

But his remarks Sunday come at a time when the administration and an apparently increasing number of Capitol Hill Republicans are calling for air strikes in Syria, as part of an overall Middle East foreign policy, to stop the rise of Islamic State and other terror groups in the region.

Clinton, earlier this month, criticized the so-called Obama doctrine, saying it mistakenly failed to support those who first opposed the regime of Syrian president Bashar Assad.

“The failure to do that left a big vacuum, which the jihadists have now filled,” she told The Atlantic magazine earlier this month, after saying in a recent memoir that she advocated as secretary of State for helping the Syrian rebels.

Paul said Sunday that Democrats’ biggest 2016 fear is him running in the general election with a lot of Independent and some Democratic voters saying “You know what? We are tired of war. … We're worried that Hillary Clinton will get us involved in another Middle Eastern war, because she's so gung-ho."

To be sure, this is not the first time Paul, a Tea Party favorite, has criticized Clinton.

In a recent, 10-stop tour through Iowa, site of the country’s first presidential caucuses, he called the conflict in Libya “Hillary’s war.” And he said Clinton’s handling of the 2012 terror attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, in which four Americas were killed, should disqualify her from becoming president.

Paul already has a solid grassroots outreach efforts in early-voting states. And he is in third place behind New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, according to an averaging of polls for potential 2016 GOP presidential candidates by the non-partisan website RealClearPoltics.com.

Michael Czin, spokesman for the Democratic National Committee, said Sunday that Democrats are eager to debate Paul about "his fringe, isolationist vision," which Czin says includes plans to end all aid to foreign allies, including Israel.

"That's the vision he's laid out and defended time and time again and that even conservatives have said would bring 'terrible misery' to millions of people across the globe," he said in a statement.

Paul is becoming quite the little anti-war candidate.   he's now to the left of hilary/obama.

FINALLY a stark contrast for repub voters to sink their teeth into.  Perry saying obama needs to light their asses up.  Rand telling everyone to chill.

O’Malley moving political staff into South Carolina
Posted by
CNN National Political Reporter Peter Hamby

Columbia, South Carolina (CNN) - As he builds support for a possible Democratic presidential bid, Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley is dispatching political staffers to work on two key races in South Carolina this fall, sources familiar with the moves told CNN.

The Washington Post reported Monday that O’Malley was sending “more than two dozen” staffers from his political action committee, O’Say Can You See PAC, into Iowa and New Hampshire to assist midterm candidates this year. Those states kick off the presidential nomination process, followed by South Carolina, the first southern primary.

The four O’Malley aides heading to South Carolina will work on the gubernatorial campaign of Vincent Sheheen and the lieutenant governor campaign of Bakari Sellers. Sheheen is mounting a repeat bid against South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, and Sellers, a state legislator, is considered a rising African-American star in the party.

O’Malley has already raised money for both Democrats, making him the only potential presidential contender to assist their campaigns, collecting valuable on-the-ground political intelligence in the process.

The “Ready for Hillary” super PAC also boasts of field staff doing spadework in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, along with other states, but Hillary Clinton herself has yet to campaign for midterm candidates this cycle. She and her husband, former president Bill Clinton, will make their first foray into Iowa next month for Sen. Tom Harkin’s annual steak fry next month.
