Rethinking events...I plan to stand with RandSubmitted by godfreeus on Sat, 06/09/2012 - 17:26
Like most of you, I was initially shocked and felt betrayed by Rand Paul's announcement supporting Mitt.
However, after re-watching the Hannity video, reading many posts here and mulling over the Adam Kokesh interview, I can only conclude that "they" got to Rand with some kind of threat.
I have followed Senator Paul's actions in the Senate quite closely, and with the exception of the Iran sanctions, his entire Senate portfolio consists of pro-liberty, small government activities. I am on his mailing list and he sends out requests for help with issues such as abortion, gun-rights, and civil liberties. I have also seen him argue against NDAA, the TSA, and stupid socialist energy policies on the Senate floor.
If he or his family were threatened, and I believe they were, he is only doing what he can do to protect them. I've changed my mind and I plan to stand with Rand at this time of need, because he has already demonstrated that he is on our side.
The politics in Washington are the darkest of darkest places and the light exposing it is causing the pols to strike back. We might have lost this battle, but as RP said, we will win the war.
