    Rand Paul will crush Killary in 2016.

    Killary voted for the PATRIOT Act twice.

    Great to see Gingrich defending the Clintons-wild in fact. Not sure what Van Jones was up to but the result was an opening to look at all the work Hillary has done as Gingrich pointed out: 8 years as partner to Bill Clinton to advance programs that served people well, Senator of New York, candidate for President and Secretary of State. REally, who is better qualified for the job of President? It's a tragedy that in elections of candidates who do not have the inside information of national and world affairs, they're supposed to step into office and do the job. They've made promises as candidates that without the actual and real information and experience is a mockery. Hillary Clinton knows what she's getting into and who's what and what's where, so there really is no serious candidate other than Joe Biden at this point in time. Rand Paul is sounding like a states person, but the GOP won't support him.

      What utter bull crap – The problem in trying to elect good leaders for The United States of America has nothing to do with the color or gender of our politicians. It's our politician's, from both parties, lack of honesty and the lack of willingness to do right by the US citizens that they're elected by and should be representing.

      Before Hillary Clinton runs for president, Americans need to remember that it was her "husband" that got us into bed with China in the first place. – And how's that been working out for the American People and the Real American Economy?

      And what about that whole White-Water/Vince Foster deal? And we all know that Hillary must have made a deal with the Dems for promises of future power, just so that she would agree to stand by Bill's side during that whole Monica scandal.

      I don't trust the Clintons at all. – It was the "Clinton Machine" that kicked the ball over to China, which got the Real American Economy rolling down the hill.

      Nixon restored normal diplomatic relations between the US and China, but Clinton is the one who opened up the trade floodgates with Communist China. And both Bill and Hillary were actively involved during their visit to China.

      Under Clinton jobs to China, Under Bush I & II influx of illegals/cheap labor into the US and jobs to Mexico/NAFTA – Bush started it and it was signed into effect by Clinton. I loved President Reagan at that time, because he brought pride and respect back to our country after those embarrassingly weak Carter years, but unfortunately his shortsighted economic policy sent us down the wrong path. Reaganonomics was a huge mistake. Jeez and the wizards on Wall Street wonder why the American people aren't putting as much money into savings and their 401k plans anymore. Maybe it's because the shortsighted economic policies, from the 1980's to the present, have come back to bite the hands that feed them. I guess the thought of changing from a manufacturing based economy to a service based economy of smoke and mirrors is working out just great? – Not!

      But even now President Obama is pushing a new disastrous, job-killing, "free trade" agreement on the United States under the misleading guise of increasing export opportunities. The president is asking for fast track trade authority that would give him unchallenged authority to do whatever he wants, in most cases to satisfy his campaign contributors instead of the American people. His track record proves he cannot be trusted with this kind of power. Congress must vote to deny the president fast track authority and they must refuse to pass the TPP!

      The president claims this agreement will be a good thing.

      In fact, the scarce details emerging from negotiations point in the opposite direction. Hundreds of corporate advisers are at the table looking for handouts for their particular industries, while average Americans are largely left in the dark. The results will surely be disastrous.

      If they try sneaking another disastrous trade agreement, like this TPP deal, through they're true Traitors to the American people. And I'll bet both parties will be involved. Funny, they can work together to line their own pockets, but not to put protections in place to help the American citizens that they are supposed to represent.

      Hey you stinking Free-Traitors: The AMERICAN PEOPLE can see what's been and is still being done to them!

      The Trans Pacific Partnership must be stopped before it buries us for good.

      The WTO and NAFTA have done enough damage already, but if this goes into effect, Americans are really screwed.

      Unfortunately almost all of our political leaders are a joke – Only it's not so funny, because over the past several decades, all they've been doing is screwing the American people, by stalling, spending, removing protections and allowing illegal aliens to continue to pour in and American jobs and industry to pour out, and all while collecting their American tax-payer funded pay checks, benefits and whatever else they get on the side from their various lobbyist friends.

      Let's face it both parties are just doing the bidding of their masters, while lamely trying to look like they're trying to represent us. Wouldn't it be nice, if some of these masters were conscientious loyal Americans who loved their country and cared about their fellow Americans enough that they would finally start pointing their lap-dog-politicians in the direction of doing right by the American People? Maybe that's delusional on my part – But if this doesn't start happening soon, the American people and the future of the country that we love is doomed.

      If more Americans would have listened to Perot back in 1992, we wouldn't be in this mess right now. The American people and the real American economy would have been much better off today! I and many other people, who were able to see through all of the left vs right BS, did vote for Perot, because he was straight forward and just used common sense. He cared about his country and the American people.

      ----------------

      Oh Yeah Right – Balanced Budget Bill Clinton left us in great shape – As he sold us out to China and just waited for the damage to start setting in after he was long gone. – How'd that work out for the American People, the future of our country and the Real American Economy?

      Things may have been better short term as far as stock vales and consumer spending were concerned during the Clinton administration, but that was just a Short-Term Artificial boost to the economy. The Real American Economy and the Future of the American People was on it's way down hill, because of our leaders and that shortsighted Wall Street mentality selling the American People's Jobs Out to countries like Communist China, India and Mexico where it's not even remotely close to a level playing field.

      Clinton is the one who opened up the trade floodgates with Communist China and both Bill and Hillary were actively involved during their visit to China.

      Bill Clinton, "I did not have sexual relations with that woman nor did I have unethical trade relations with that communist Chinese government."

      But let's face it, both parties are full of stinking Free-Traitors: The AMERICAN PEOPLE can see what's been done and what's still being done to them!

    AW, Gee,
    What do you expect for a "Know Nothing'? What gave you your first clue? Was it the 18 Trillion Dollar Federal Debt? Was it the Housing Bubble? Is it 50 Million on Food Stamps? Maybe it's the High Unemployment numbers? Or maybe it's the Southern Border being over run by hundreds of thousands of illegals who think all they do is get here because of the Obama Administration giving the impression everybody can come, and attach themselves to all the Welfare Programs in existance?

    Really can't wait to see Kevin McCarthy,Thom Tillis,Sheldon Adelson,Rupert Mourdoch,Karl Rove,Lindsey Graham,John McC ain,Hayley Barbour,Grover Norquist and the GOP stuff Jeb Bush down the tea party's throats EXACTLY like they stuffed Romney down. Straight no chaser. Hillary will drink to that.

    Hillary is completely out of touch with the middle class.

    Pretending you're not rich will backfire.

    • That didn't

      That didn't stop you from voting for Romney. He evaded taxes by off-shoring his money. But that's OK with you right?

        I suggest you look into the Marc & Denise Rich issue as it pertains to the Clinton's. You should find it extremely interesting.

      Why is Hillary constantly in the news? – Seriously every where you look the amount of "news/pep-rally" stories on Hillary are unbelievable – Every time you look, there are more and more and more – When is it going to stop? – This lady is rotten to the core and this is coming from someone who thinks both parties stink. – I don't trust the liberal media or FOX, because all they both do is to try and continue to polarize and distract the American People, while they're puppet-masters are screwing us right down the middle.

      But let's face it, both parties are full of stinking Free-Traitors.

      What ever happened to: "We The People" ?

      Why is the media so infatuated with this evil-unethical-disingenuous-dishonest-power-monger?

      Wake up America! – Who's been pushing so hard for her and why?

      Could it be that Free-Traitors and Foreign interests own and control our media?

      It's Hillary – Hillary – Hillary 24 / 7 / 365 – Hummm?

      We all knew back when that whole Monica scandal was going on, that she must have made a deal with the Dems and the Devil for promises of power in the future in return for her standing by "her husband" Bill's side.

      You know the problem in trying to elect good leaders for The United States of America has nothing to do with the color or gender of our politicians. It's our politician's, from both parties, lack of honesty and the lack of willingness to do right by the US citizens that they're elected by and should be representing.

      Hillary Clinton's interview on ABC with Diane Sawyer – What a puff piece promoting Hillary – Ha, Ha, Ha cutie cutie – This is sickeningly transparent! – What a shocking harsh, no holds barred, interview? (Sarcasm)

      It's obvious Free-Traitors = ABC = Foxconn = China = Our money and our jobs going, going, gone!

      The American People need leaders who will stop selling us out to countries like Communist China, India and Mexico.

      The American People deserve leaders that will honor the fact that they are elected by the Citizens of the United States of America to represent the interests of those citizens and the country itself and that They are NOT Elected By or To Represent the Global Market Place, Lobbyist, Foreign citizens or Illegal Aliens.

      Before Hillary Clinton runs for president, Americans need to remember that it was her "husband" that got us into bed with Communist China in the first place. – And how's that been working out for the American People and the Real American Economy?

      Clinton is the one who opened up the trade floodgates with Communist China and both Bill and Hillary were actively involved during their visit to China.

      Bill Clinton, "I did not have sexual relations with that woman nor did I have unethical trade relations with that communist Chinese government."

      Bill and Hillary Clinton are two of the biggest FREE-TRAITORS around.

      Hey you stinking Free-Traitors: The AMERICAN PEOPLE can see what's been and is still being done to them!

      And the Vince Foster incident and many others like it should not be forgotten.

      Hillary hasn't accomplished anything other than using the Monica scandal to leverage the Dems for future power.

      The American People need to ask themselves: Who's been pushing so hard for her and why?

      I truly believe that she is evil.
