Ron Paul Can Win & Rand Paul's the Proof!Submitted by PoliticalPatriot on Wed, 07/06/2011 - 00:14
Remember WE, the PEOPLE, still have the final say as to who gets in and out of office. Case in point - Rand Paul, an eye doctor, and son of Congressman and Doctor, Ron Paul. Rand, who before his U.S. Senate run, had never so much as even ran for the local dog catcher's office. Rand shouldn't be a U.S. Senator, if you were to only listen to all those "in the know".
When he announced that he would run for the prestigious and powerful position of U.S. Senator to replace the outgoing Jim Bunning, WE, the PEOPLE, were told that he would NEVER WIN by the GOP machine and media.
They lined up lock-step behind his primary challenger, Trey Grayson, with one endorsement after another...former Vice President Dick Cheney and Senate Minority Leader, Mitch McConnell, former presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani, Senator Rick Santorum, Representative Hal Rogers, and several members of Kentucky's State Legislators.
When the primary came and went, the people of Kentucky had their own ideas, and shouting with their votes, chose Rand Paul, deemed "the man who couldn't win", by a 2 to 1 margin over the sure-thing, shoe-in, Trey Grayson.
In the general election, the "man who couldn't win" handily beat the challenger, winning the un-winnable seat (deemed un-winnable by all those in the political "know").
Ron Paul has been deemed "the man who can't win". Based on what happened to his son Rand, Ron Paul will likely be our next president.
