I think americans want a serious stable minded candidate. (Google "ron paul conspiracies"..)
Name one conspiracy. (Google "truth is treason")

I'm starting to like Rand Paul a bit, it's just a matter of me getting more info about him. Though, I think he may face the same issue Cruz will face. I believe he can fight it better then Cruz though.

Ultimately I think Jeb Bush will get the nomination.
Why don't you get info on all the candidates before posting? Your post would be more credible.

Nothing about policy?
It's always about policy.

Only when the Progressive side of the party is chosen.
Try and sell a Progressive as a Conservative again, projecting them to the front in the media and see what happens... AGAIN!

Well let me know when right wingers actually vote for a true conservative in their primary election. It seems like you guys vote for the progressive and then complain that the person who won the party nomination is a progressive.

Various youtube videos. A few "appearances" on Alex Jones/ Glen Beck...

I take my vote seriously unlike many here. I research options before tapping on the checkbox in election day. I believe it's my right to share what I have learned. Some candidates I would like to know more about, such as in the case of Rand Paul I'm doing that now, and and even more after he chooses to run. While that happens, it is my right to express what I believe the outcome for each candidate to be.

Ron Paul afters running 3 times and failing miserably each time, I feel pretty knowledgeable about.

I do not spend my days,(do not plan to in the future), like some of the ironically unemployed folk back in 2012 making duplicates accounts to push gimmicky candidates that realistically have ZERO chance of winning, and yelling voter fraud when voters choose to reject that gimmick.

Lets not get into who's credible and who isn't.

I'll withhold analysis on your usage of the terms progressive and socialist, since that would require moving the topic in an entirely different direction.

We have never had a legitimate two party system in The United States. We have one dominant capitalist mega-party which contains two very similar sub-parties which call themselves "Democrats" and "Republicans". These parties both watch over the interests of corporate America, and of the wealthy individuals who profit from corporate avarice.

In the spectrum of American politics, the most liberal of politicians are slightly to the right of center, while the most conservative among them are standing near the edge of the far-right cliff.

All four of your options are from the far right. I'll cut Ron Paul some slack because there are some sincere and legitimate libertarian components within his ideology. The other three are all wing-nuts who would lead us to the darkest recesses of the abyss.

lmao You didn't name one conspiracy Ron Paul agrees with. Not one.

Ukraine air crash is a good one. Its about nothing except differing media takes on the crash.
Here's a laughable made up quote that only those with no thought process would believe
"Everybody is killing people, and everybody is horrible. But Ron Paul apparently thinks that since the numbers of deaths of pro-Russian civilians and Amsterdam-based air passengers are roughly equivalent, what's the big deal now?"

Hebdo the comparison was about "the movie" being the cause of Benghazi. That's it.

You never looked into what Ron Paul actually said. All because someone said so and you believed them. PT barnum was right.

No you don't. You never listened to what Ron Paul, only what others claim he really really means.

No one says you don't have a right to spew nonsense.

You just made up some tabloid nonsense. Yet you never once discussed policy. It's always about policy.

It does not matter who is in the field, each front runner gets knocked off until the establishment gets their way, too bad we did not get Herman Cain for president.
