  • Who would you want? ** Not a debate thread **

    Just as a curiosity, who would you want to be President right now if you could choose anyone in the US and why?


    For me, it'd be Thomas Sowell or Clarence Thomas. Staunch Conservatives with a healthy respect for tradition, articulate, and very knowledgeable and even tempered.

    Certainly, an interesting question. I certainly won't want most of the politicians that I know of. Right now, I'm only coming up with "None of the Above."

      Rand Paul is my top choice. No contest. He seems to be the only guy in Washington who believes in a Federal government that is strictly limited by the Constitution.

            Offhand, nobody comes to mind.

            It's more of who'll do the least damage and undo what has been done.

                      We need Desantos in Florida for now otherwise he would be my choice. As for my choice if not Trump then I have to go go with Thomas Sowell, or Larry Elder. Of Course if I really wanted to piss off the far left I'd say Ben Shapiro.

                        Agreed. I don't think he can ever win the White House because he doesn't have the stage presence and dynamics necessary to take an election. And his message is "Stop depending on government! No more spending!" That's not what voters want to hear.

                        But what's good about Rand is that he can network, he can confront the enemy without antagonizing them, he can get concessions. I don't believe he would slash-and-burn like Trump but he would downsize.

                              Only if there were a way to clone him so he could also stay as governor of FL. Great governors are *at least* as important as a good POTUS.
