Rand Paul for President: 2016 - What must he do to earn your trust back? He hasn't earned mine yet.Submitted by OldWest on Wed, 11/07/2012 - 17:57
For Republicans, there is a silver lining to the re-election of Barack Obama. The door is now open for real change in 2016. The recently adopted Romney Rules at the RNC, which would have locked out any true democratic participation and guaranteed eight more years of GOP establishment, top-down, Brahman-style, domination, are now moot. The gate is open.
The change that will be debated in the next presidential election will not be about tax percentages, or troop withdrawal timetables, or welfare for Big Bird, or who should be the next chairman of the Federal Reserve. The change that will be debated will be about fundamentals, about monetary policy, about the philosophical underpinnings of our foreign policy, about the relevancy of the American constitution and where we are headed as a people.
It will not be the red team against the blue team, espousing the same things in different degrees, rather it will be about real differences.
