I believe Rand Paul should be our candidate [“Is this man the next president?”].

More than that, I believe we Republicans should choose one man and all stand behind him and get him elected. Having eight or more candidates running in the primary and tearing each other apart for months and spending so much money is a very poor method to elect anyone.

The Democrats usually run one or two people. They are more focused, and their money is more wisely allocated, rather than spread to so many candidates.

Republicans must elect a true conservative in order to get this country back to the principles upon which it was founded. I believe we will be surprised by the support for Rand Paul. We cannot live with the Republican Establishment – get rid of them and elect true patriots to the Senate and House.
