Presidential Election 2016 The Other Guys

We know that the 2016 Presidential Election is over a year away BUT on January 24, 2015, the Iowa Freedom Summit hosted many of the top conservative Republican presidential hopefuls. While SOME of them hold values that COULD be dear to us, most of their OTHER values are not AND Most of them hold values which are loathsome in the extreme. SOOOO we have dumped all of the attendees on this page, with links to their You Tube speeches (where such have been made available).
