"I will gladly vote for Rand.
He's not a Judas... just a clever tactician. Think Snape."

Nobody in 2016

We fought the War for Independence to secede from Great Britain, not to replace its king.


It would be healthy to garner a list of possible running mates ... here are some I like

Maine Governor Paul LePage
Judge Andrew Napolitano
California Congressman Tom McClintock
Michigan Congressman Justin Amash
Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura


Run Rand Run in 2016. I am with ya!


I was confused about the Romney endorsement at first but I think I understand now. I will support him.

"No physical quantity explains it's own existence, and no amount of time can consume an infinite series of events to bring you to the present, which means all of these somewhere have to be explained by one self-existent cause which is not physical."

So far

So far I am undecided on Rand. I know he has introduced good legislation, but his Romney endorsment does make me uneasy.

Would like to hear more from

Would like to hear more from folks here about this. This is the Daily PAUL, after all.

Time for a bump

Here we go.

I don't hold him accountable

He gets benefit of the doubt.

I Won't Be Supporting Him For President..

I won't Be be supporting Rand for President...not after he endorsed Romney while Dr. Ron Paul, his father was still a Republican candidate for President! I don't support traitors.

Are you saying you wouldn't

Are you saying you wouldn't vote for the man who's record of introduced legislation and voting is closer to Ron Paul's than anyone in the past 100 years because his strategy hurt your feelings?

Maybe if you understand

Ron Paul's campaign was not getting MSM coverage for accomplishments like plurality.. the rEVOLution is all about the message, restore the republic, and getting that materialized to accomplish our stand on issues, no war, free market, ending the fed.. and you saw the censorship, you saw the brutality and hard ball dirty politics being played.. and there were many of us who were new to the GOP, didn't have a clue what was going on.. DP was full of misinformatants.. and then Rand endorsed Romney.. KNOWING Romey had the nomination sewn up, and that many of us for Ron Paul, didn't understand our loyalty oath to the party.. Rand's endorsement had people ASKING WTF? And those finding they had signed loyalty oaths, went stealth, or faced the music /dirty tricks with a vengence, since many in the GOP believed the lies, that WE were doing the dirty tricks.

Rand spared delegates at the RNC who stood for Ron Paul even under their loyalty oaths.

Rand is very capable, a good guy and unless you can name a senator or governor who is doing better at getting liberty on the MSM pages, I'd say, Rand's the man!

Stay in the Senate

I hope Dr. Rand Paul will decide to stay in the Senate another 6 years, putting a block on bad legislation and continuing the fine job he is doing there pointing out all the issues with Big Government Central Planning.

We need Rand in the Senate.

Rand Paul 2020!

2012 Liberty Candidates and then 2014

We need to help those Liberty Candidates who have made it to the General Election. There's only 5 days left. Get off your butts, get to their HQs and make phone calls. Get Liberty Supporters out to the polls.

Lets worry about 2016 in two years. After election day, we need to field Liberty Candidates for every statewide and Federal Office so we can change the RNC.

I will definitely vote for

I will definitely vote for Rand Paul if he runs in 2016. I believe he would have won this year if he had run. In the mean time he will be fighting for our liberty as a senator.

The Ron Paul Revolution

will be continued with his son, this is the natural order of things. Rand Paul is the ONLY ONE fighting for freedom in the senate. The Rand Paul haters can go if they want, they will be replaced by the millions of tea party sheep that love rand but just don't like Ron because of the "conservative" msm.

this would be a victory how?

The goal should be to change the hearts of those "tea party sheep," not to pander to them.

"It may be a hundred years before a computer beats humans at Go - maybe even longer. If a reasonably intelligent person learned to play Go, in a few months he could beat all existing computer programs." - Piet Hut

and how did you change?

I was a hardcore neocon for years, Dr. Paul opened my eyes, unfortunately these sheep have already heard Dr. Paul, and the MSM conservative talking heads have swayed them by belittling the man and not the message, RAND still delivers the message and the tea party sheep love him. They will naturally come to their senses, as all of us did at one point.

What you are saying is precisely why people come

here and bash Rand.

He is a very serious threat to some very powerful people.

You can say that again...


"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."


Rand has hovered over the divide, and I commend him for it. His father is the rock, the anchor, but rand can float with the tide always keeping the principle behind him.


Make it happen, folks. We

Make it happen, folks.

We need Obama to win.

We need a civil war within the Republican party.

Chaos breeds opportunity.

We have youth on our side.

Our numbers are growing.

The economy will be in shambles by then.

There's an ideological war happening in Wash. D.C. and a Romney win will hurt us and freemarket capitalism.

Rand Paul is a good man, and his fathers ideas and everything he has worked for lives within Rand even if Rand is more political. Rand is his father's son... he will make him proud. To believe otherwise is foolish.

Rand Paul 2016

I like MY Presidential canidates with Principle

as their guiding force, NOT self serving ambition. Jeb Bush will be the RINO nominee in 2016. Michael Steele is already working for that...

I would vote for him as well as actively

work on his campaign's behalf.

"Dr. Ron Paul defines the

"Dr. Ron Paul defines the essence of who I am"

Sorry, wrong, Dr Paul has principals. Hence, the lack of a GJ endorsement.


Ron Paul has principles not

Ron Paul has principles not principals!

But you sound like a pro life person because you oppose Gary Johnson. Why else would anyone be opposed to Gary Johnson on DP?

And many pro life people weren't paying attention in school. Their grammar is poor. Their knowledge is deficient.

They don't appreciate the difference between "potential" and "actual" so they are willing to consider a microscopic cell to be a person.

The essence of a human being is the possession of a volitional, conceptual consciousness. You guys just don't exercise it. You have to learn how to think and how to re examine what you were taught.

Otherwise your indoctrination will undercut your ability to fight for liberty and you might just lose it and find your grandchildren living in a totalitarian dictatorship.

Liberty requires thinkers not indoctrinated virtually mindless superstitious robots.

No Man's need constitutes an obligation on the part of another man to fulfill that need.
