We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I like him. He doesn't go as far as I'd go on some issues and I'm a little unsure what his current position on illegal immigration is, but I could vote for him easily if he were the nominee. At this point, I favor Walker, but I find Rubio to have a very effective delivery that, to me, comes across as calm, honest, straightforward, and direct. Watching him with Sean Hannity last night, he seemed to have a pretty good grasp of the issues and reasonable ideas about them. I find him very refreshing.
As for his looking like a kid, is it me (at my age) or does everybody who is ten years younger than I am look like a kid?
I would not vote for Marco Rubio under any circumstances -- read that: not under any circumstances.
His sell out to Schumer's Gang of 8 was the tell: Rubio blows with the wind. Such a man is not to be trusted.
Haven't we had sufficient problems with a guy who is not loyal to our government because he thinks America is over-rated and to blame for colonialism, slavery and every other problem in the world? I don't think Rubio is of the same character, but our Founders were most aware of the problems of divided loyalties and specifically state "natural born of two citizen parents" when defining the eligibility for this job.
Vattel rules and I would prefer not to let the GOP muddy the waters by taking the same path as the Democrats who manipulated the system in every way possible to make Obama their candidate. Heaven only knows what precedents will be set by the continuing destruction of our Constitution, which has been shredded since Wilson and reached new lows since 2008.
To date, Walker seems more qualified. Rubio, Cruz and Jindal can make enormous contributions in Congress, the Supreme Court or as governors bringing states rights back to their citizens.
