Why Rand Paul doesn't need your vote in the 2016 Republican primary

For those of you who 'will never vote for Rand Paul'. He'll get most of the Santorum/Gingrich tea party vote, most of the liberty vote, some of the Romney types will come around, others will be in nursing homes or dead by that time. I think his strategy is sound. A close association with the ideas behind this movement would have been heavy baggage to carry. The vast majority of Republicans are not libertarians and won't be converted by 2016, no matter how much we would like that to happen. Whine all you want, he doesn't need you.

Rand Paul 2016

Hopefully you are correct and...

Rand Paul does not NEED us. But, hopefully he is going to WANT us.

I beleive, like his father, Rand will not pander to voters, neither us Libertarians nor them Republicans.

Rand Paul 2016 for Peace

Nice theory, but they won't let Rand be President

There is a Libertarian element of the elite, but they only build up destroyed countries (for profit).

We're much more likely to see someone like a David Petraeus as the wars/economy get worse and desire for security/order grows desperate.

But would they let Rand be the nominee? Only if they knew he wouldn't win.

Once you know how the system works you would realize a loudmouth RINO like Chris Christie or Rick Perry has a much better chance to be President.

Fight the Ron Paul blackout on the Daily Paul (now 'P AU L'), put his removed poster back as your avatar:

This too rich...I can see where this is going

1st I had to put up with the G dub lovers who after 5 years of his nonsense couldn't see how evil he was because he slept with his bible and read it everyday. Then Obama wins a frigging peace prize after he starts drone war 500. And the antiwar dems vanish off the map. Try tell them how awful BO's foreign policy is...HERdur herp derp is all u get in response.

Here I thought it could not get any worse with mindless zombies following their dear leaders, but I can just see it 4 years from now starting all over again this time with some good folks. Shame...For Shame.

Gonna really hate it!

But hey I can have code pink back right!
