Zogby Poll: Rand Paul leads potential 2016 GOP presidential candidates by 7 points

We are a long, long way out but this kind of lead even at this early stage puts panic into the hearts of the more establishment GOP candidates for president. To be clear, a large part of the GOP in Washington DC would rather have Hilary Clinton as president than Rand Paul. The last thing the bankers want is a president who will force an audit of the Federal Reserve or even seek to hobble the Federal Reserve.

Is Hillary the Corporate Candidate enough of a populist for the Dems?

The short answer is yes. Don’t worry Democrats (and Republicans) Hillary will be plenty liberal or “progressive” or whatever the word for statist will be in 2016. But part of that package, the pro-state package, is partnering with powerful corporate interests. That’s just the way it is.

But she’s a woman.

Hillary is the corporate candidate, Twenty-nine of the 30 Dow Jones Industrial Average index companies have given money to her

Bush was a corporatist. There is no doubt about that. Obama is a corporatist as we have documented over and over and over. But Hilary Clinton is taking things to a new level. She is tight with the banks, pharma, defense, you name it. She watched Glass-Steagall twitch and die at her husband’s hand from the guilded confines of the White House. She is a crony capitalist through and through.

Colorado 2016 poll: Rand Paul beats Hillary Clinton (By a lot.)

Colorado is a political bellwether. It is an interesting mix of rural and city, hippie and frontierspeople, gun nuts and gun control laws, new west and old west. It is perhaps the purplist of purple states. And right now Rand Paul is not quite crushing Hillary Clinton, but soundly ahead of her in this very important electoral state.
