my goal for 2014 is to put as many R's in office as possible. i don't even care if they are RINO Rs. in some areas, like mine, a RINO is as good as you will ever get..and that's a long shot. it's about votes this time, more than purist ideology. we not only need a majority in the Senate, but we need a veto proof majority. we need to get enough new blood into the house to get some of this spending stuff under control. in the house more than the Senate, i'm after the most conservative we can get in.
2016 might be interesting. at this moment, my first pick is Perry. he has leadership experience, he has a proven track record, he's a good cheerleader, and as a texan, he'll scare the crap out of the rest of the world. i'd rather be respected than loved.
i know that he's not conservative enough for some, but it will do us no good to elect a very conservative candidate who hasn't the experience to step in and lead from day one. we don't have time for training wheels this next go. as for VP, i like Cruz, Paul, Rubio, and several others. don't think you could have two texans, but either paul or rubio would be a nice balance to perry.
so...that's where i am right this second....always subject to change!
i like Palin, but god help me, her voice is like fingernails on a chalkboard to me. :evil:
