What do those that don't like Rand Paul suggest happen?Submitted by plethora123456 on Mon, 12/10/2012 - 22:19
There has been a lot of commenting and posting on Rand Paul as of late, and many people seem to be diametrically opposed to their opinions on Rand. Some see him as a "strategist" for pandering to the neo-con crowd, and hope that he comes to his senses when given more political power. It's working, as seen in the recent "favoriteability" ratings being positive among neo-cons and the older crowd Hannity-watching neo-con crowd. It's working, at least from the point of view that more people like him than his father.
The problem with this is that Rand is compromising the one thing that Ron Paul's people begged for. That of course, is the foreign policy.
Those that don't like Rand Paul and call him a neo-con (and even if it's disingenuous, it's still an accurate description of his voting record in some regards). He compromises on foreign policy, won't speak of Bilderberg anymore, and is doing many that his supporters voted him to be against.
My question is this, to anyone that doesn't like Rand Paul and are disgusted at what he's doing:
What do you suggest happen?
If Rand Paul could do something to bring us 'back to his side', what would it be? In your best scenario, what would you like to see happen, if it could?
Would it be to adopt Ron Paul's foreign policy? Would it be "be exactly like his dad's voting record?" And it it was, how would you suggest we bring the message of Liberty to the older crowd, who will eventually become older people on medicare, who will never vote to take it away?
Should we abandon even trying to influence the 35 year and older crowd?
I'm curious---I am still thinking about the whole situation, so I have not opinion yet. I'm curious to hear yours.
