        I voted for our POTUS in the primary over Rand only because I realized we had one chance to save it all and that Rand, as much as I admire him, didn’t have the points position to make a late last minute come from behind push. Rand and Ron have both been my candidates for years.

        Hoping the POTUS will channel some of Rands views on foreign policy concerning war and NATO, (both of which are obsolete).

              The Pauls understand economics better than anyone. They understand the Constitution better than anyone. They have introduced legislation to audit the Fed, as well as many other important bills to shrink the size of the federal govt. They have presented their beliefs before their respective houses of Congress, and did it well. But you can’t fix stupid! We have senators and reps that are embarrassments to the American people, and yet their constituents continue to re-elect them. And these dems and RINOs either don’t understand the Pauls, or purposely ignore them. The Pauls are not the problem!

          • a record of something would have helped. the Paul bots not getting in the faces of other people would have helped even more. My brother lives by Philly. The Paul bots were the Hare Krishna’s of politics. They accosted him every time he went by.Sorry I’m so soured on the guy but having dealt with his followers during Herman Cain’s campaign don’t care to do so again. Besides i’m a non interventionist too;but not a naive pacifist either. There are times the military is a terrible option and should NOT be used. There are other times the military option is the ONLY option at all. It’s smart to keep it on the table ALL the time.

            That said.. early on in this race, it was clear that he didn’t have what it took to take down the swamp, so I started hanging onto the back of the Trump Train ever since.

            The Pauls were made for a country that is less swamp like, less filled with IEDs, less crooked. Being a good person and a gentleman (and I suggest both are) can only go so far.

            Their ideas and ideals are sound…although I take exception to Libertarians bordering on isolationist type foreign policy…and certainly take exception to those libertarians who are open borders people.

            I have found a party that suits my needs…the MAGA party. It has enough of the libertarian tenets that I agree with…it weeds out those tenets that I don’t like….and the tent is big. Blacks, Gays, Women, Hispanics and various other “special groups” who have been treated with kid gloves every election year but then quickly abandoned have found out that MAGA includes them too…not as someone special, but as an American who just wants a fair shot and a great country to take that shot in.

            Even the garden variety left-pacifist is sometimes more aware!

            The problem is that most PARTY Libertarians equate neocon abuses to ALL defense – a complete lack of discernment. The Republican-voting libertarians who support Trump tend to be the smarter ones with some discernment – they GET POTUS. I find myself allied with them on occasion – when Trump is being cornered into idiot wars by the reliable useful idiots of the neocon wing. When the McCain McMuffinoids wanted a White Helmet war (Netflix boys – do the math – total useful idiots), then Trump’s rear has actually been SAVED by those libertarians – including Rand. They really are an essential wing of the Trump coalition. But when Libertarians go too far and oppose necessary defense of liberty – well – NOT SMART.

              There is a subdivision of Libertarian called “Conservatarian”. Basically it is mostly Libertarian with some conservative principals such as right to life for the unborn, strong non-interventionist military only for our DEFENSE, none of this utopian open borders. free trade nonsense, etc.

                The ones who get weak-kneed are more millennial – more like “New-right moderatarians”. But they have put Trump over the top several times. The left targets them with fear-mongering all the time. Thankfully, they seem to be gaining trust in Trump to listen quietly to them when it looks like neocons have control of the conversation under MSM backing.

    I am a big fan of Sen. Rand Paul and an even bigger fan of his dad, Rep. Ron Paul.

    My personal political philosophy is completely aligned with Ron Paul’s philosophy. I believe in small, limited government with enumerated powers and I believe this drive for big and bigger government that we have seen manifest over the past several decades under UniParty rule has resulted in massive government interference in all aspects of our lives.

    I am also in agreement with Ron Paul that all our covert and military interventions overseas and particularly in the Middle East have brought zero benefit to the US. I don’t believe the majority of the American people decided that we should be the military arm of the Likudniks & the Saudi monarchy, running regime change operations in Iraq, Libya and Syria by arming and supporting radical Islamist jihadists who actually attacked us here at home. The vast majority of the 9/11 terrorists were Saudi’s but they are supposedly our best pals in the Middle East and we destroy secular leaders like Saddam & Assad. Whose side is our government on actually? Do we have any business meddling in other people’s affairs?

        Reagan said “If you analyze it I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism.”

        Trump is even more libertarian than Reagan. Try telling that to Reason, though. TDS is strong with their writers. The comments section just mocks each article and author relentlessly. So it seems most libertarians are on the Trump train, even if you wouldn’t know it by reading “libertarian” publications.

      Re-posting for POTUS Independence Day thread.

      Paul Harvey gives a history of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. It’s quite moving to realize what each one gave up; for liberty. Each signer lived up to the pledge: “And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.” They gave up all they had to obtain liberty.

      It was a bonus to hear President Reagan read these words.

      Thank God for President Trump who has also given up much for the country he loves.

Wish everyone could view this video, many have no idea of the ensuing hardships these men faced – the true meaning of heroes. Thank you for posting this important video.

Is or is not the media supposed to carry a very important function.

The man is at the tail end of his life cycle and I hope that he finishes his 2 terms strongly and then, along with the gratitude and love of those of us that get “it”, he enjoys the rest of his life.

      He literally doesn’t have to do what he’s doing right now, but I am so very grateful that he is. I was so lost in bitterness and despair during the Obama years and it’s almost as if it was just one long 8-year nightmare watching him tear apart my Children’s futures. I’m awake with a purpose now -we have a real chance.

        Pence will never be elected President, and will only arrive there if the unthinkable happens to Trump. We just went through a long election season and already people have forgotten the swing states and the electoral college. Pence would win perhaps just Indiana and his opponent would sweep the other eleven ( VA, IA, NC, FL, OH, MI, WI, PA, NV, NM, CO ). “Conservatives” lost the electoral college by the time Bush41 got elected, got into bed with China and discarded Main Street and the blue collar middle of America. And to make matters worse, we have been murdered by demographics and liberalism every day since. God help us if we are stupid enough to forget these basic facts and make believe Pence or any of the 16 dwarfs could win today. Only Trump, an outsider could thread the needle necessary to sew up the election.

      You mean Donald J. Trump? When is the last time you read your Constitution and its Amendments?

      In order to be eligible to be Vice-President you must also be eligible to be President ( see the 12th Amendment ). The combined effect of the 12th, 22nd, and 25th Amendments locks out any possibility of such an event as you describe!

    A personal observation, FWIW.
    The country still has two political parties, but quite suddenly now defined differently: the Uniparty, the left wing of which is Dems (Perez says the completely inexperienced Bronx bar waitress represents its socialist future), and the right wing of which is RINOs (many like Flake and Ryan now exiting the political scene); and the Trumplicans, the left wings of which are independents and newly #walkaways, the right wings of which are Libertarians and rock ribbed evangelical conservatives like Cruz.
    The Trumplican Party is growing and winning, shifting the center of gravity to the right. The Uniparty is shrinking and losing, and so increasingly evidences ugly TDS like Antifa, MS13 ‘sparks of divinity’, and ‘Red Hening’. Trumplicans are MAGA!

    Please note at the 0.20 mark – ‘paralyzing moments of doubt’.
    Unfortunately, i see a lot of that displayed here on CTH comments sections when news reports get published.and people react with the ‘woe is me’ syndrome. It reminds me a lot of the part in the Mel Gibson move. ‘The Patriot’ where Benjamin Martin’s oldest son goes to the church to recruit militia and is confronted by the ‘Never Happen squad’ of squishy ‘patriots’ about the depth, skill, and experience of their opposition, the British Army, and how we don’t stand a chance against them. They convince themselves that the patriot cause will fail…and for them it will. With that in mind and on this glorious 4th of July, I want to wish all fellow Treepers ‘Happy 4th’ ! May your time with family, friends and loved ones keep that special flame alive in your hearts to continue this fight for liberty and freedom, to defeat the socialist and communist… remain absolute in your support of our President, Donald J. Trump (our own ‘Benjamin Martin’) and his team of Patriot Wolverines;even though some may appear to have faltered, knowing that PDJT will not fail us and will correct the wrongs and vanquish those that want to destroy the greatest country that God has put on this earth.
    God bless everyone. God Bless and keep President Trump safe. God Bless America !!
