    And the GOP thinks for a split second that Americans believe that another Bush or any of the GOP nominees would do anything different?

    Just another reason why the GOP doesn't stand a chance.

    Guess it's time to crash the stock market.

    Graham is just Obama light...

    A democrat serving as a Republican.

    He has no chance for the nomination.

    None.

    Good.

    But I think his running further damages the party. Like I said, the fact that a person running for the party's nomination would come out and say what he did will appear to most potential voters as the possible position of GOP candidates no matter what they say.

    Fair or not, it's gonna serve as a picture of what a lot of folks already think the GOP is: war hungry to make themselves richer.

    It will look like the party wants to continue the ways of George W. Bush.

    I don't think the GOP stands a chance of winning. But the "candidates" keep doing a top-shelf job of really making sure that it's not even close.

    The bottom can fall out of the stock market and it probably will, but that's not gonna come close to making most Americans want to elect a party that they believe to be war hungry.

    Who wouldn't vote for war? Especially the way the government and media sell them to us.

    "Which do you prefer, regime change in ___________ or for you, your family, your friends and your little dog Toto to all die horrific agonizing deaths in a gigantic unprovoked terrorist attack by one of the many terrorist groups we sponsor as regime change agents and proxy armies? Hmmmmm?"

    "But don't worry we'll keep you safe if you give us more money, more power and more control." :saint:

    During a recent interview with Reason magazine Editor in Chief Matt Welch, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) defended himself againt recent charges by fellow Republican Sen. Linsdey Graham (R-SC).

    < snip >

    This is a rush transcript. All quotes should be checked against the audio for accuracy.

    Reason: Lindsey Graham said, as part of his critique of your performance, that you're more scared of the NSA than you are of ISIS. Is that true?

    Rand Paul: You know, I think there are people who...you have to consider the source. This is a person who said that he would use censorship if he needed to. This is the same person who said, "Well, when people ask for an attorney, you should tell them to shut up." This is the same person who's also said, "If they ask for a judge just drone 'em." I mean, some of the stuff I think doesn't rise beyond middle school kind of rhetoric. So it's hard to know when to respond to people like that.

    Lindsey Graham has as much chance at becoming President as I do.

    According to this,

    High functioning sociopath is term used to describe people with sociopath traits that also happen to have a very high intelligence quotient. They are likely to be highly successful in the field they endeavor (politics, business, etc.). They plan very meticulously and the presence of sociopathic traits like lack of empathy, lack of remorse, deceptiveness, shallow emotions, etc. makes it very difficult for "normal" people to compete with them.

    he has a better chance than Rand Paul. But then this could probably be said about every other establishment candidate the democrats and republicans can field.
