Potential GOP candidates aren’t as competent as they think they are

As everyone reaches a certain age, we all learn that the fairy tales we were told by our parents (or saw in Disney films) were explanations for how we should be moral and how to make reasonable choices. These were stories where we as young people build our own ethics. These tales helped us as children.

Looking at the political landscape, however, they would seem to do the opposite. Of course, these are not the same sort of fairy tales we are all familiar with. When looking at figures such as Rand Paul, Jeb Bush and Paul Ryan in particular, old lessons would seem to never hold. Even with the ensemble cast that has yet to appear together as presidential hopefuls, it is still either a set of old embarrassments or new quandaries.

Senator Rand Paul from Kentucky, bearer of Ron Paul’s infamous ideological tendencies that independents agree with, mixed with Tea Party tenacity, and some rumored plagiarism. I can admire some of his views on weed and government spying as well as his non-interventionist outlook. However, Paul stands by some GOP positions that do not resonate well with voters, including an amateurish outlook on foreign policy.

Marriage equality, Obamacare and immigration reform are all becoming more and more favorable in this country according to National Public Radio (NPR), and young voters will not support a candidate who opposes all of these crucial issues. The same can be said of all the other “candidates.”

Paul Ryan, the young congressman from Wisconsin and son-of-Mitt-Romney lookalike, has been a fact-finding disaster before he was tapped to be vice president. I recall from the 2012 election he was sometimes referred to as “Lyin’ Ryan” (a title nobody named Ryan should acquire).

Ryan’s most recent dilemma has been with his wimpish and borderline racist descriptions of African-Americans and Latina/os as “urban” and “inner city culture.”

If Ryan is so white that he cannot help but use abnormal words to describe non-white Americans and the poor, he is no different from other radical conservatives from times long past, men like the raving Barry Goldwater and the felonious Richard Nixon. Regarding the poor, Ryan must still be blinded by Romney’s “I’m not concerned about the very poor” puerility. Perhaps Romney bestowed that trait to young Ryan.

Donald Trump — never going to happen, so I will skip him. Sorry for the alliteration, but Chris Christie’s currently creamed. Scott Brown, Scott Walker, John Cornyn and Rick Perry: stop, you must be joking. As for Sarah Palin or Ted Cruz, in your dreams. Even speechwriter and actor Ben Stein is rumored to run, made famous for first saying, “Bueller… Bueller… Bueller?”

Ben Carson is seen as the great non-white hope among many right-wingers. A neurosurgeon, he appears to have removed all of his rational understanding when the Conservative Political Action Committee grabbed hold of him. Of the 99.9% of scientists who insist on the factuality of evolution, Carson is that 1 percent who, quite literally, ignores the facts in front of him.

And with Mike Huckabee, nobody wants a pastor sharing his odd, archaic views on marriage equality as President of the United States.

Jeb Bush had great potential before the 2000 election. But I stand by what I have thought since before his brother Dubya left office — it will be a long time before there is another Bush in the White House. I do not, on the other hand, doubt his wish to run if he in fact does so.

However, Bush would not be as likely of a candidate due to his lack of apparent craziness that the Tea Party makes heavy use of. Of course, David Letterman has it right about Jeb Bush, for “Bush Presidencies are like ‘Caddyshack’ movies. They should have stopped with one.”

Looking at the call sheet, it is so energetically bleak that one wonders whether the Grand Old Party stands a chance. Standing up to the likely successor of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, is equivalent to standing up to Optimus Prime: no one stands a chance.

However, Rand Paul might prove to be that malfunction in Clinton’s armor.

In a Clinton versus Paul scenario, it would be an unanticipated reverse of 2008. His youth and, frankly admirable views on marijuana, government surveillance and armed intervention will captivate people who have lived in a war-addicted, Big Brother-esque society that has apparently abandoned those searching for the fabled American Dream.

Not that one, though, the one that came true. Not the American dream exposed by the Beat writer Jack Kerouac or the late gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson. The GOP’s “city on a hill” American Dream. The one that praises the privileged and continues to disregard the forgotten.

In what I see as a three-party system (Tea Party, traditional Republicans and Democrats), the Democratic Party is still the political party which appeals to the “common man,” to paraphrase the first Democrat president, the genocidal Andrew Jackson. (See: Indian Removal Act.) Over the next two years, Rand Paul has the opportunity to change some of his views that are currently leading to the social discrepancy happening in this country.

As marriage equality continues to become more popular, why would a member of the GOP or Tea Party pass being on the right side of history? The very same can be said about immigration reform.

Still, the scenario of Rand Paul being the 45th President is not impossible. Just think, it was at first impossible for Nixon to win the White House with Robert Kennedy as his opponent. A bullet in Kennedy’s brain interrupted all worries, and Nixon easily won the 1968 election.

After a decade of social change with the Civil Rights Act and the pointless escalation in Vietnam, Americans shifted from the approachable progressivism of the Kennedys to the blunt egomania of Nixon. Predictably, if the Senate is retaken by the GOP later this year then what are the odds that our social focus will shift to the right? Amidst millionaires “buying” elections, this will likely not be the case.

Sinking to new lows seems to not stop those of the far right. It only serves as power grasps that will keep impracticality and antiquated worldviews in the public eye and in high office. Democracy weeps.

    So this publication goes for the weirdest among the Republican candidates being Rand Paul, sure I find Jeb Bush’s comments on immigration to be out there too, but do people realize what sort of damage marijuana could do to your brain if you use too much of it?

    http://psychcentral.com/news/2013/12/17/heavy-pot-use-may-damage-brain/63425.html

    Yea, think about it, we get amnesty with Jeb’s “acts of love”, minimum wage is at 15 dollars per hour or higher, we have single payer healthcare gee how the heck are we all going to pay all of this? Marijuana would just be a sad excuse to escape from reality.

    Our society would sadly weep being more braindead than before, and oh how about Rand Paul and his father’s affiliation with the Kansas white supremacist shooter?

    1. Jose Apr 23, 2014

      That was a non peer reviewed study on 20 misfits. Why it gets any credibility at all can only be explained by putting politics and ideology over science and evidence.

      1. M2000 Apr 23, 2014

        I do not care, I will not support legalization of marijuana, I had a friend who took too much of it, ruined his life.

        The fact that you peddle and promote it in a Fascist-like manner saying you “need” this stuff now shows how far off someone like you are. Marijuana will be taxed and will help failed government programs.

        Case closed you Useful Idiot.

        1. Jose Apr 23, 2014

          People like you will soon be dead and the new generation will take over.

          Prohibition has ruined a lot of lives, that’s why it’s time to end it.

          1. M2000 Apr 23, 2014

            The “new generation” will be too high on drugs to care about development. That’s the truth on where your cause is leading you.

            Marijuana is just an excuse to promote legalization of another form of escapism.

          2. Jose Apr 23, 2014

            The new generation is too well informed to be misled by studies put out by prohibitionist groups.

          3. M2000 Apr 23, 2014
          4. Jose Apr 23, 2014

            Completely bogus and you know it.

          5. M2000 Apr 23, 2014

            I think you’re bogus, you don’t care what brain cells marijuana can destroy nor any other drug you legalizers want to legalize:

            http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/the-athletes-way/201312/heavy-marijuana-use-alters-teenage-brain-structure

          6. Jose Apr 23, 2014

            A magazine, big deal.

          7. M2000 Apr 23, 2014

            Your brainwashed attitude makes it the obvious that a new generation will just usher in more, and more new problems.

          8. Jose Apr 23, 2014

            You’re the brainwashed one, a fast dying breed.

          9. M2000 Apr 23, 2014

            I think not, I have a friend who is going through mental issues because he smoked marijuana too much you moron, I know now first hand.

          10. Jose Apr 23, 2014

            Prohibition creates an unhealthy environment to smoke marijuana. Some people will be victims of it.

          11. M2000 Apr 23, 2014

            Oh like how the “wonders” of that might happen in Colorado? Gee, where are all the drug cartel members going to go once their product is legalized?

            http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/02/14/colorado-pot-drug-cartels/5485421/

            The fact you compare this to prohibition isn’t quite the same at all. Maybe new problems should happen to your kind that will never be solved and let that be a curse on you and your cause.

          12. Jose Apr 23, 2014

            You think you can win by how many dumb posts you make?

          13. M2000 Apr 23, 2014

            I think you ignore the neurological mental issues that can happen with marijuana, maybe people like you should be smacked in the face first by it.

          14. Jose Apr 23, 2014

            Well it’s going to get legalized since people like you are dying off fast.

          15. M2000 Apr 23, 2014

            Yea, that’s a “nice way” for the “new generation” to push themselves through, while you be so rude, obnoxious, spoiled, rotten to the core because you care about a cause that may backfire on you, maybe you should ignore reports of people shouldn’t be using drugs while driving even if they do become legalized:

            http://www.cleveland.com/broadview-heights/index.ssf/2014/04/mother_calls_police_on_daughte.html

            I’m in my early 30’s, was mistaken as a teenager because I watch my health unlike someone like you who panders to a cause that may make you look older while you’re still young.

          16. Jose Apr 23, 2014

            Please die soon.

          17. M2000 Apr 23, 2014

            Hey Fascist, still here. Be gone.

          18. Jose Apr 23, 2014

            Prohibition is fascism.

          19. M2000 Apr 23, 2014

            I’m not the one who wants people to DIE you moron. Double talk alert.

          20. Jose Apr 23, 2014

            I’m not calling you names either, just die.

          21. M2000 Apr 23, 2014

            Look in the mirror, what a pathetic loser you look, hoping people to die because they happen to disagree with you.

            Yea, that’s the “sort of generation” you want to grow up, being ignorant?

          22. Jose Apr 23, 2014

            Steve Jobs the pot smoker would be alive today if it wasn’t for the Paraquat that gave him pancreatic cancer.

          23. M2000 Apr 23, 2014

            Don’t come to me and pretend you suddenly care about progress. Hope you enjoy life while you look old while you’re in you’re 20’s pal or whatever other age you are but far older.

          24. Jose Apr 23, 2014

            Steve Jobs didn’t like the closet grown pot because it had fungus on it, that’s why he smoked the outdoor pot that got sprayed with Paraquat.

          25. M2000 Apr 23, 2014

            Legalizing a thing that’d make people look older:

            http://www.ryot.org/you-wont-believe-how-fast-drugs-made-these-people-age/637025

            That’s what you promote, that’s what’d hold up, that’s what’d you look in the mirror if it were cursed 20 plus years older than your current age.

          26. Jose Apr 23, 2014

            You’re taking too long to respond, have a nice short life.

          27. M2000 Apr 23, 2014

            Yea, the “attitude” of the legalizers, they want you to die if you disagree with them. Fascists they are, all full of doubletalk.

          28. Jose Apr 23, 2014

            Double talk is marijuana on Schedule I with no medical benefits. Look below if you want to see double talk.

          29. M2000 Apr 23, 2014

            “Mr. New Generation” types like you will be replaced by robots who won’t get high on weed, because minimum wage is 15 dollars per hour, we have single payer healthcare and companies can’t afford to keep average workers, and the able bodied people are high in drugs they’d be replaced with robots instead.

          30. Jose Apr 23, 2014

            I won’t have any problem getting a job programming them so serve my every need.

          31. M2000 Apr 23, 2014

            Like nanny-state bots, wow gee it’s no wonder you behave more like a baby when you don’t get your way with marijuana.

          32. Jose Apr 23, 2014

            If you want to live in the Stone Age with Prohibition maybe you can move to some place like Uganda.

          33. M2000 Apr 23, 2014

            You’re calling a nanny-state “hi-tech” even if let’s say an EMP strikes and destroys all the robots taking care of you, how will you be able to run society then? Opps, didn’t think about that.

            “New generation” will be wiped out completely by a Red Dawn style invasion.

          34. Jose Apr 23, 2014

            I harden everything I build. I don’t use that lead-free solder with the solder whiskers either.

          35. Jose Apr 24, 2014

            EMP does not affect people. I have two water wells and can produce my own energy.

          36. M2000 Apr 24, 2014

            It affects the robots working for them you dope. The other thing is a John Galt style End Game can come upon you and shut off druggies like you for good with your pathetic nanny-state bots gone.

          37. Jose Apr 24, 2014

            Not sure what this all has to do with the incompetent GOP candidates like Christie who, like Romney, said he would fight marijuana legalization tooth and nail. May as well put a nail in Christie’s coffin.

          38. M2000 Apr 24, 2014

            You must be high on something, I never mentioned those two they’re panderers who’d pander to worthless causes with no real meaning.

          39. Jose Apr 24, 2014

            Take a look at the title of the article and then consider yourself as a patient with an attention deficit issue.

          40. M2000 Apr 24, 2014

            Do you seriously believe they’d hold onto an issue like that without flip-flopping back to supporting it? Since they know they’d apply crony Capitalist tactics in just replacing the druggie with a robot?

        Funny how you claim to be against government oppression you are using a government website as your “source”.

        1. Jose Apr 23, 2014

          Funny how you put politics and ideology over science and evidence.

          1. M2000 Apr 23, 2014

            Yea, the same science tells me that you ignore neurological issues that’d develop because of overuse of marijuana. I do not want people driving under the influence of any of these legalized drugs on the street.

          2. Jose Apr 23, 2014

            The study you cited is in a different league that what I cited and you know it. You are a hard core liar and the world will be better off without people like you.

          3. M2000 Apr 23, 2014

            It looks like you already lost some brain cells without taking marijuana, your kind in this pro-legalization cause will be the first subjects of the study:

          4. Jose Apr 23, 2014

            You have yet to cite a reputable study. That is a study put out by counseling groups who receive clients who have a choice to go to prison or go to counseling.

          5. M2000 Apr 23, 2014

            Still not convinced marijuana overusing it can do much harm? Here’s more evidence:

          6. Jose Apr 23, 2014

            Another bogus reference, see if you can find a real scientific organization to support your fraud.

          7. M2000 Apr 23, 2014

            So my references are “bogus” but your’s are “not”? Wow, what one-sided track mind you’re on.

          8. Jose Apr 23, 2014

            Nothing you have comes close to the National Institute of Health.

          9. M2000 Apr 23, 2014

            National Institute of Health, gee if they find out their evidence is wrong and people start having mental issues they should retract themselves.

            Yea, it’s okay for you to believe in a government “health expert”.

          10. Jose Apr 23, 2014

            Read some of the reports and then spew some more nonsense.

          11. M2000 Apr 23, 2014

            Look who’s talking about spewing nonsense.

          12. Jose Apr 23, 2014

            The aging you see on some pot smokers is not from the pot. It’s from alcohol, amphetamines, cocaine, and heroin.
