Although it's still about one year away from the Republican Convention in 2016, I have narrowed down my vote to two individuals: Governor Scott Walker and Senator Rand Paul. Not only are they the best GOP candidates, they offer the GOP the best chance to win the American Presidency in 2016!
1. American Voters' Ideology Spectrum
The image below shows my qualitative view of American voters' ideology spectrum, which can be highlighted in two points as follows:
So it's the ideas, stupid!
2. Big ideas
The image below highlights my three big ideas for the GOP 2016:

3. Governor Walker or Senator Paul
Governor Walker has demonstrated his uncanny guts and wisdom in tackling Democratic Socialism! I highly praised him in 2012 (Public-Sector Unions: from Wisconsin to America), and he has become even better since then.
Senator Paul has the most thoughtful foreign policy, including this simple but important recognition: Rand Paul: Republican Hawks Are Arming ISIS. He offers the best hope to tackle Democratic Imperialism. I conditionally endorsed him in 2013 (My Email Exchanges with Senator Rand Paul), and I stand by that endorsement today!

4. Governor Susana Martinez
Bluntly, the GOP nominee must choose Governor Martinez as the running-mate, in order to have any chance in 2016, especially when faced with Hillary Clinton. Two main reasons:
So the 2016 GOP race may simply come down to this: Governor Martinez, which one do you like better, Governor Walker or Senator Paul? For more, wait for my next post: "An Open Letter to Governor Susana Martinez"!
In 2013, I published a book "The GOP Bible for 2016". Now, I have spelled out the best GOP ticket for 2016. Will the GOP listen? If not, it will be President Hillary Clinton in 2017, guaranteed!
