Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders may run for president (Video)

Please, please, please run Mr. Sanders. It would be a lot of fun. And though I am disgusted by your economics, and though your ideas basically lead to the enslavement of the human spirit (I know you would argue otherwise) you for the most part are not a hack like Hillary Clinton. (Though you do do the Koch boggieman dance in this interview, and you don’t seem to have a problem with piles of union money manipulating the political process, bigger piles than the Kochs.) I would enjoy seeing the 2 of you debate very much. I promise I will not miss any of them and we will give any debates plenty of coverage.

I have to say though that every time I hear Mr. Sanders speak I am saddened. He’s a smart guy. He should understand why markets help everyday people. He should understand that socialism is death,that it is poison. How could someone as clearly bright as Mr. Sanders still cling to such a retrograde religion?

It’s hard to convert I guess. Especially in Burlington or Washington.

Hillary Clinton follows Christie to Mexico in search of Carlos Slim money

Hey, why not? It’s not like borders matter anymore anyway. So what if a foreign national is trying to influence presidential campaigns? Why should we be concerned with that? And it’s not like Slim is giving money directly to Clinton’s campaign anyway. His money has gone to her charity. So it’s all on the up and up.

So that’s Slim, Buffett, and Soros smiling at Clinton. The billionaires do love Hillary.

Rand Paul: Dems ‘Scared’ I’m Going to Run Against Hawkish Hillary Clinton (Video)

Politics continues to get more and more interesting. Things are changing in a big way.

It’s not all driven by Rand Paul. Technology (and social media specifically) has a lot to do with it. The economy sputtering does too. And of course the general war fatigue.

But Rand is articulating a message which reflects where many Americans are right now, in a way that I’ve never seen in my lifetime.

With Christie hobbled, Jeb Bush’s lukewarm (at best) reception, Establishment GOP floats another Romney run?

Yes, this is the genius masterstroke the DC GOP has been waiting for.

You have to hand it to the establishment. They keep trying. So what if Romney is another big government Republican which a large part of the GOP vote couldn’t really support in 2012. The consultants which got paid big time during the 2012 Romney run could get paid again! And if Romney could somehow get the nomination it would be another blow to the libertarian/conservative coalition in the Tea Party. Win/win. Well not for the American people, and probably not for Mitt Romney. But certainly a win for the folks who work in Downtown DC.

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.
