    I like Rand, would even say he is my second choice. Why is he doing so poorly?

      He’s not as radical (non-intervention, etc.) as his Father, so his father’s supporters consider him a heretic, but he is enough pro-liberty, freedom, and such that the mainstream and establishment hate him. He also doesn’t have his Father’s history (Ron I think was elected in 1976 so was proven to be unwavering), and also compromised with Mitch McConnell since he wanted to play nice in Kentucky. If he stays in the Senate another 8 years he will have a much better chance if his track record proves it.

      • Yes, time for him to get back to his day job-he was doing some good things-I was very disappointed when he supported McConnell but guess he felt he had to.

          I saw him at an event not long after Matt Bevin had gotten into the Senatorial race. I asked Rand why he had endorsed McConnell. His answer was “it is customary for one sitting senator to endorse another.” So much for being an outside the beltway “maverick”. Once you’re “in the club”, everything changes. He then proceeded to become McConnell’s lucky rabbit’s foot, working hard for old Mitch. I’m really angry with him… as in can’t stand the sight. His little foot stomping episode here is very typical. HUGE ego…

            Just like the lame excuse he gave when he voted for the dear leader’s appointees “elections have consequence”. Apparently his election does not have consequences only odumbo’s. Every time McConnell commits one of his deceitful acts I “thank” good ole Rand.

      Ron Paul always played it close to his base of Buchananites that wanted no part of his true Ayn Rand sensibilities of free trade and immigration. His old newsletters are a key into this period of our history.

      Rand Paul has no such legacy, and after his old man outed himself as in favor of mass immigration, he got on the same boat. Even worse, he pandered to Al Sharpton.

          RP was two faced on that issue, wining the GOP primary in his district meant he had to be against it. The establishment could not outflank him on it for their own interests.

          When it came to actually doing anything, he wasn’t around with Tancredo and King.

          Rand is similar, he was hard against amnesty in the 2010 primary, but after 2013 started waxing poetic about his childhood memories of Mexicans. He appears less aligned to the Ayn Rand views of his father, and shares almost none of the Edward Said approach to foreign policy. He’s also notably closer to advocating positions based in Christianity rather than the nebulous NAP.

          Ron Paul did 3 Great Things in my book:
          1) Started the “AUDIT the FED BIll
          2) Pushed the “STOP the Land GRABS” Issue~~Petition’s Online etc. (before this was the thing to do}
          2) “Get the U.N. Out Of the U.S.A. & Get the U.S.A. Out of the U.N.” `~~{ A strong Position on this}

          These are “Nationalist” Positions that are STILL a YUGE Problem & I am Sure TRUMP will start with the LAND GRAB Issue First~! {He DOES Know about the Oregon Problem,}

      I like Rand Paul too, he’s not GOPe. He’s the guy that will actually cut the deficit if elected president. Trump will do good on deals and many other things but deficit, we will have to see. Hope Trump can use Rand Paul as some kind of budget czar to look over spending.

        I like Rand Paul as a senator because he has
        some very good ideas and is either the only one
        or one of the few senators that return unused
        senator office funds at the end of each year.

        That said, I was extremely disappointed when
        he came down on Trump hard early on. It was
        unnecessary, unprovoked and so obviously at the
        behest of McConnell and the GOPe. Can’t trust
        him now. He will have to earn it back.

          I’m a Trump supporter but I find it disgusting a media outlet can let two candidates who do not even qualify to become president because Cruz and Rubio are not eligible. Rand is being pushed off the stage just like they did to his father and it is wrong.

          I think he might have a case to say he is a harmed party and should file a federal injuction for declaratory relief as to the presidential eligibility of Cruz and Rubio.

          Rand Paul to me is too straight forward and will not bend the rules. He should have stayed back like cruz from the beginning. Trump only goes after rand cause trump like he said hate disloyal. Rand ask trump for contribution then was hitting on Trump. Trump have more toughness but Rand is more discipline. To me either would be a good president better than Cruz or the rest.

        FOX is trying it’s hardest to take down Trump. Tonight O’Reilly had on Brit Hume to speak as an ‘authority’ on the state of the races. Hume explained that the Republicans should be a shoe-in this year . . . but the problem is that Trump and Cruz have the worst polling numbers with Independents among all the canidates and the Republican party is in danger of throwing away a sure thing unless a canidate with wider appeal is nominated.
        So in other words: only Bush, Kasisch or Rubio are “electable” and if it’s Trump, Hillary wins.
        They lie to us like were retarded or 4 years old or something.

        Trump on the other hand has a ton of leverage so could demand a lot of things if he wanted too or even say no to all remaining debates. He does not need a debate or the air time as he gets more than all the others including the democrats combined… 🙂
