Ron Paul is trying to equate an invasion by Russia to the U.S. placing military installations into countries either as a result of winning a war, e.g. WWII with Germany and Japan or by treaty agreements with invasion of a sovereign nation. Mr. Paul's comparisons are absurd as are many of his ramblings. To consider that particular interview as anything but rambling would be a grievous mistake. I can only hope that his son Sen, Rand Paul will separate himself from these statements very quickly or the sins of the father will surely visit upon his son in his quest for the presidency.

Re: Harold 15's comment, You are 100% correct in your comment. most of all when you wrote, " I would never tell a subordinate to do something that I would not do myself." I might change the above sentence to "not be capable to do myself." Fred Speckmann commonsenseforamericans@yahoo.com

The post above is the scariest thing I have ever read. Unlike "worker" below, I'm afraid that the comment is the heartfelt belief of "LoyalProg" Please allow me to add reality to your progressive beliefs. First of all, the roads and other infrastructure that you make reference to that wouldn't have allowed the inventor or other businessman to succeed were in fact paid for by everyone that pays taxes. The government is only a conduit to build those infrastructures. That is one of the few legitimate purposes of government. No society could be prosperous if we each needed to build our own roads to run from a factory to every market that the factory serves. Just like the defense of a nation, government becomes the funnel that allows resources to be focused unto specific needs of a nation. Not specific needs of individuals. May I recommend reading Atlas Shrugged in order for you to get an understanding of what makes economy's and nations function. It is the individual who is willi9ng to risk all that ultimately creates jobs for others, but this can only happen if the individual risk taker also is the one that can gather the greatest reward if he is successful.

Has there ever been any proof that an honorable man like Huntsman's father was the source of Harry Reeds comment because I believe that Harry Reed spoke another lie pulled from his hat as he usually does with anything he says. Fred Speckmann

The question on that conservative vote is whom did they ask. As to the Tea Party being satisfied, it would be simple. find a candidate that promises not to raise taxes and mean it, shrink the government and mean it, be a real Conservative and mean it. You probably noticed the most important words above are "mean it." Fred Speckmann

A good list, but it's not a list for establishment types like Huntsman. It's for someone who has proven to be willing to do as he or she says they will do. At present, the only ones I see on the horizon is Senator Cruz, lee and Paul. We need statesmen! Fred Speckmann

Post #2 continuation The only qualifications that would help Huntsman or Christie is their post as governor which Wiscons Governor Scott advocates as preferred executive experience. I would certainly agree with his opinion. On the other hand, this 2016 presidential election is going to come down to electing an honest man we will be able to trust completely. Trust on doing what they say they will do. Cruz, Mike Lee and Rand Paul have done exactly so. The fact that the Republican establishment has already double crossed and attacked them on all fronts speaks well for each of them. No more of the establishment club let's throw all the bums, both Democrat and Republican out of office. Don't just give your vote away, hold all candidates feet to the fire before and after the election. Bring this country back to where it once was, greatness, where no negativity ruled the day. When anyhting was possible. Where it didn't take 13 years to build a new World Trade Center because every nickel and dime politician had his hand out to be grased and everyones position was being the big shot in the deal. America is fed up with the desintegration of this nation. It's true, we are a nation of immigrants, but let me remind you that we are talking about legal immigrants as I was and we welcome all immigrants that want to come here legally. You may ask why I bring up immigration in this response, it's because Republicans need to deal with the illegal problem and need to speak up about the fact that legal immigrants are welcome and not let Democrats frame that argument as if we were against Immigration and loose the Hispanic vote to a bunch of liars. Let's call the opposition by the name they've earned. Liars! Fred Speckmann

Post #1 More in Post #2 Re: Huntsman 2016 Dear Ms. Ginsberg, I don't mean to insult your intelligence and writing ability, but I must ask you, what planet are you living on? With all due respect to Mr. Huntsman as Utah's governor, he has clearly shown his inability to get to the top of a national ticket. It's high time that we Conservative Republicans stop the establishment from deciding who's next. Haven't we learned our lesson from the John McCain disaster. Perhaps with Sarah Palin at the top of that ticket and John McCain keeping his RINO mouth shut, we might have had a chance. At least she would have exposed candidate Obama for what he was. Then we nominated Mitt Romney, an honorable man who sadly was not a real conservative. He played a conservative on TV, but he did institute Romney Care and there was no way to hide that mistake. No matter what anyone wants to call his version or President Obama's version, it's socialized medicine and Americans don't want it, period. Yet here you come along trying to tell us that Chris Christie is the leading candidate but we should not dismiss Gov. Huntsman. On whose vote are you basing that opinion. I too liked Gov. Christie's outburst at the union teachers that he faced down. There were many other instances of such occasions. But is being someone that could easily become a blowhard instead of a feisty Republican a man that we want to lead this country after being without any credible leadership for the last five years and one could argue perhaps the last thirteen years. If anything can be said for eitherGov. Huntsman or Christie, the best that they can hope for is being a flash in the pan. Frankly I have my doubts as to Gov. Huntsman having any realistic thoughts about running again. I also don't believe he would want to deal with the same kinds of despicable attacks based on his religion or his wealth as he witnessed Gov. Romney having to endure. This country is ready to have a man that will speak truthfully on the campaign trail. The obvious people come to mind, Senator Cruz, Mike Lee and Rand Paul. I believe that Senator Paul's father Congressman Ron Paul may very well be a detriment to his campaign. While congressman Paul has many opinions that are commendable, he also has many that border on the absurd and that relationship whether fair or not would hinder Senator Paul's chances of success.

Re: bob 24, I have often asked the publisher of this sit the same question. Of course during the last 15-20 years the ability for journalists to communicate in the English language has suffered greatly. It's not just the grammar and the occasional typo that appear in many newspapers, it's the sheer rudeness of editors and publisher to seldom respond when these matters are pointed out to them. sadly, common courtesy to the readers have disappeared as have all forms af good manners.
