Keep calling people who disagree that Rand, acting in opposition to the principles of liberty is furthering the cause of liberty, "haters".
It reveals what you are, a leftist plant trying to smear and marginalize people who tell the truth.

Wrong zforce

you are still asleep, and you don't work in D.C., so to think you or I understand how the game is played and then to make judgements based on how we think it is would make us assumptive idiots. I don't assume, you do, and I am not calling you an idiot, but I will say you are thinking on the surface way too hard. Think deep zforce, that is where the truth is. Rand Paul is not your enemy.

The R3volution requires action, not observation!!!!

Get out of here with that sht

Ron Paul worked in DC and he knew exactly how the system worked and understood the ONLY thing that will eventually work-itegrity and honesty - with one's self and others.

You can have your neocon controlled puppets such as benton and Rand who think they are somehow going to trick a trillion dollar system in voting their way, and in the meantime mineaswell get rich while doing it...

Fkn idiots..

Ah yes,

throw in the Benton bashing with the Rand bashing.

Typical pattern.

Same fkn shit

How do you think Rand found "Compromise Principle Avenue". Surely it wasn't because of his dad's directions.

Don't you get it? It doesn't matter what he SAYS

It matters what he DOES. He's like the opposite of a typical politician who says good things and votes completely differently. He says some things that don't appeal to the liberty movement to get the support of the mainstream Republicans, yet votes like one of us. He has seen how his dad was blacked out by the media and silenced by the establishment GOP. So he tries to appeal to them. In 2016, Rand can run WITHOUT that happening to him. Look how he got to speak at the GOP convention this year. He is playing their game. Rand is doing what we should be doing - infiltrating the Republican Party. He's brilliant.

YES!

YES!

Proud to say I campaigned for Nader after Ron Paul ended his race in 2008.

Yup. Thank Ralph Nader for seatbelts, airbags, and safety glass.

The story of Ralph Nader is simultaneously noble and distressing. Nader’s significance as a consumer advocate in the 1960s and 1970s is a matter of historical record. Nader’s seminal “Unsafe at Any Speed,” published in 1965, led to the passage of the 1966 National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act that established the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. This bellwether act initiated a shift in responsibility for automobile safety from consumers to manufacturers and mandated a series of safety features for automobiles, including safety glass, seat belts and air bags.
Later Nader founded Public Citizen, a consumer watchdog group that took on large corporations over issues concerning consumer safety and environmental causes.

Thanks for posting

As painful as it is for most of us, we have to face up to the facts. I loved how Rand campaigned for his dad in the '08 campaign, but I could tell his political beliefs were noticeably different than RP's. When I heard that he was running for senate, it kind of bothered me, because clearly, he was riding on his father's good name and his support base, and I don't think he could've won without it. It was obvious to me that RP's 2012 campaign and all of us who supported it were at least partially sacrificed in order to ensure Rand's bright new career. I wouldn't have minded at all, btw, if Rand was much more like RP, but clearly, he's very different in many ways.

Pretty clear that Ralph Nader

Pretty clear that Ralph Nader clearly reads dailypaul and/or rpf. I wonder what lie Rand told him.

It Was The Interviewer (Not Nader) Who Spoke Of The Grassroots

And whom Rand purportedly lied to, by claiming to have no knowledge of the unseating of the Paul delegates.

Great Interview

He calls Ron Paul "the only principled person." On foreign policy, and on the Federal Reserve, Nader stands with us.
