Below is a list of potential Republican nominees for President in 2016. The three front runners in straw polls are Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Scott Walker. Walker is my favorite, but Ted Cruz and Rand Paul would also work for me. Rick Perry would work for me as well, his speech at CPAC was so good it might bring tears of joy to your eyes if you love America.
There are two on the list that I would never want to see get the nomination, and it may surprise some people. The two I’d be most against are Chris Christie and Dr. Ben Carson. Most conservatives will understand why I’m against Christie. It would be more fitting for him to be the Democrat nominee. My opposition to Ben Carson might be harder to explain because on every issue but one he is a star. But he is absolutely terrible on the Second Amendment. He believes in more gun restrictions, and that’s a deal killer. Widespread citizen gun ownership is more important now than ever in the history of the United States as a check on the over militarization of the police. Disarming citizens now would invite the insidious emergence of a police state and the sudden emergence of a crime-ridden society of predator and prey.
