Give me 5 good reasons why Marco Rubio should even be considered a presidential contender for 2016.

Give me 5 good reasons why Marco Rubio should even be considered a presidential contender for 2016.

Rubio doesn't act or say anything bold or controversial. He thinks playing it safe makes him look presidential, not in my book it doesn't?

What has Marco Rubio done to make himself presidential, other than grabbing for a glass of water on National TV?

More notably, why Hasn't Time Magazines 'Annointed One', Marco Rubio Called For 'No Drone Strikes On American Soil?

I've got nothing...

Sorry. I can list 5 reasons he shouldn't be considered, if you're game. :)

Ron Paul convert from the Heart of Dixie

Just 5 reasons?

1) He takes orders well.

2) He's a loyal GOP team player.

3) He puts Israel first, UN, second and USA third.

4) All the right connections.
"Rubio hired Cesar Conda, former lobbyist and policy adviser to Vice President Dick Cheney as his chief of staff."~wiki

5) He is scared of muslims and their ideas.

6) He voted 'yes' on extending the Patriot Act's roving wire taps.

Free includes debt-free!

the MSM are promoting

the MSM are promoting him.
the rinos/establishments are promoting him.
another *&^$ing lawyer
the MSM are promoting him
Oh, did I mention the MSM are promoting him.


I can't even think of one reason why Rubio should be considered.

I thought everyone knew

Rubio is just another pawn of the military contractors. He is really no different than Obama/Romney/McCain/Bush.

N/A, as in Not Applicable

I oppose threads like this, because it gives credence where none is due. It only serves to perpetuate what we reject.

IMO, he is not eligible. If you feel the need, you can fill in your own blank(s) as to why.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Maybe I Should Just Delete This Thread



If I was like obama/romney, I would insist upon it. Or send a drone ;-)


"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

How about one good reason why

How about one good reason why he shouldn't...it's called the natural born citizen clause.

"It does not take a majority to prevail, but an irate tireless few keen on setting the brushfire of freedom in the minds of men." - Samuel Adams

Leave the plantation

Free people don't choose a slave master...they just live free.

The funny thing about Rubio is...

that the GOP establishment is pushing him in an effort to get the "latino" vote. Rubio is Cuban. The vast-majority of latins in Amerika don't view Cubans as "one of their own". Heck, most of South Americans don't either...the Cuban people are, to be blunt, regarded as the "Jews of South America". They are smart, hard-working and industrious...consequently, they own everything. That puts a target on their backs for ridicule of other spanish-speakers.
Rubio will NEVER be accepted by the mexicans, et al. as a "latino".

Silence isn't always golden....sometimes it's yellow.

"The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure, when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them." - Patrick Henry

Interesting. I never knew

Interesting. I never knew that.

Disqualify Rubio: he's not a natural-born citizen

Therefore he's ineligible for the presidency. And obviously the vice presidency as well. What's the point of having a vp if he can't serve as president.

Good Point!

We have to ensure that he doesn't B.S. the voting electorate into believing he has a valid birth certificate from Hawaii..


ONE sound reason why he should NOT, is sufficient for anyone!

It need be only ONE sound reason why he should NOT, to be amply sufficient for any voter to reject such a nomination. But such wisdom has fallen upon deaf and dumb Republicans in recent years!

A better question would be, what are you doing to open the eyes of the electorate to liberty truth.. the real brush-fire answer to their pain!?

Leave the nomination to the electorate!

The party will do their best, and have already started, to cram the top down choices onto the weeping voter, again for the singular reason, and one reason alone... and that is to start the process of saving the Fed and corporate fascist complexes from the outcome of the next election!

And again they will need to co-opt the process to create their race between two candidates! And, again the two candidates will be...

'Ron Paul' against ... 'un-Ron Paul'!

There have been only two candidates, from all parties combined, in the last two elections for POTUS! Nothing in the middle. Nothing to win for either Dem or GOP. Neither party could care less!

They were all about and only about... Ron Paul vs. un-Ron Paul!

But, the CFR and all their Fed/Mil/Industrial complex banker friends, are on the ropes!

All the efforts, including the fake repentant Beck, and the machinations of many who are sudden converts, are now focused on saving the Fed once again. They know the hand of truth and knowledge, the education of the youth by Ron Paul, the liberty minded awakening, all portends the overthrow of their hegemony!

It is this main critical point which the liberty movement, DP in particular, must focus upon going forward! We must cease being attracted by that siren song at the periphery, and the distractions which are being raised daily on this site!

The enemy knows this well. They are already preparing their 'un-Pauls', for 'unPauls' are all those 'would be kings' they float, who we keep debating, and spend precious time mulling over!

Do we know this yet?

Back to the precincts folks. Become the 'go-to' person for anything political in your precinct, and we will sweep the nomination for liberty regardless of who we choose!

The people are with us.

They just do not yet realize this yet!

He is not even eligible. Why

He is not even eligible. Why can't you all figure this out? Rubio does not meet the 'natural born citizen' requirement. His parents were not citizens at the time of his birth. Rubio is a naturalized citizen. Anchor-babies are not 'natural born citizens'.

Read this and educate yourself.


Why is Obama President?

Where is the proof that he is an natural born liar, I mean citizen?

Right here...

Obama just doesn't want you to know who his real father is.


I assumed everyone on the DP knew about this...
