Respect.

I will

vote for anyone who stands for the separation of government from economy. But such a person cannot be elected today. May be by 2016 conditions on the ground would be more ripe for Rand. In any case, I wont dream that government is the solution.

If we are honest, we could see that our ideas do not sell well unless economy goes down the drain. But then again, populists have a better chance.

So what's his Platform?


. Sanctions against Iran?

. Mitt Romney as his Vice-President pick?

. Austerity? (which is also what the Banksters/Wall-Street want)

....

.

Go home baby.
Your mommy is calling you.

Rand Paul 2016

I know you don't like Rand

I know you don't like Rand but come on, If Rand had a chance at becoming President how awesome would that be! Remember, all politicians pander. I remember the Rand Paul that was, before becoming Senator, so even if he panders a bit to the neo-con side I'm pretty confident that if he became President, you would be pleasantly surprised.

How about....

...cutting $500 billion in spending the first year (including $73 billion in cuts to the Defense Department budget), auditing the Fed, eliminating the Departments of Energy, Commerce, Education, and Housing and Urban Development, privatizing the TSA, repealing section 215 of the PATRIOT Act, cutting foreign aid, requiring warrants for the use of drones, requiring judicial review for various other snooping activities of the federal government, eliminating the anti-trust powers of the federal government, restricting the jurisdiction of the EPA - to name a few things he's been working on in his two years as a Senator.

I'll work for him and vote

I'll work for him and vote for him. Ron he ain't (But, then again, who is?). Rand's the best we got with the most legit shot of getting some real attention. He's done more in the history of the Senate to actually fight for libertarian ideas maybe since Goldwater. I don't believe in letting the perfect become the enemy of the good. Go Rand Paul!

I might vote for the lesser

I might vote for the lesser of 2 evils, though i am not excited or motivated like i was for Ron Paul! Feb 13th will decide if i even stay republican. If Bush killed the constitution and obama buried it? Then the gop is the decaying flesh on the us constitution! I have no intention of donating to rand. I will save my money for local liberty candidates that haven't endorsed romney! On voting day i will consider voting for the lesser of 2 evil maybe.

believe me.
rand doesnt want or need your money or support.
ron/rand paul republicans have this , but thanks in advance for staying AWAY.

Rand Paul 2016

Rand is going to need a lot

Rand is going to need a lot of support from all those former Ron Paul people. He may not need all of it, but he will need a lot.

In fact, if he doesn't need any of it then maybe he won't be worth voting for.

.

Rand saw the confusion in his fathers run and will not make the same mistakes.
Ron catered to liberals who were confused over his ideals and followed him simply because of his foreign policy.
Many of them have found a home in the libertarian party but the fact still remains, BOTH Drs Paul are Tea Partiers and the liberty movement does not consider themselves tea partiers. It is an entirely different movement that believes in pro choice legislation, many are anti gun and anti corporation, greens etc etc.
The Pauls will never get with any of them, but WILL take the time to educate them.

"believe me."

How about I don't...
Because you really have no fucking clue what you're talking about. You're just talking shit because he has an opposing view to yours.

my my.
do you kiss peoples arse with that mouth?

Do you have real life conversations

with that joke you call your rational?

You'd argue that 1+1=3 if you got a wild hair for it. You're a goddamn idiot.

.

I appreciate someone like you calling me an idiot. Seriously.
That means Im doing something RIGHT.

Hows that for REALITY?

Rand Paul 2016

Idk...

How is asking me, "Hows that for REALITY?" even relevant to the conversation?

.

"Do you have real life conversations"

That would be part of reality.
Must I explain everything to you?

"Must I explain everything to you?"

Since nothing you say makes sense, absolutely.

So will OLE SAVIOR. Yep, OLE SAVIOR will run forever! Amen!

To Israel with love...

Netanyahoo <3's Rand.

Rand wants to eliminate foreign aid to Israel's enemies first... and then only cut Israel's aid slowly and gradually (read as "never").

Rand looks dapper in his yarmulke and knee-pads...

Rand Paul 2016

What are you on about?

forget your meds? :p

Nobody could be more near Ron Paul. I have had Ron Paul signs in my yard continually since 2007. :)

I'm not too much for Rand though.

.
~wobbles but doesn't fall down~

2 things

1. You don't know that. I think he wants to get the senate to concede ANY foreign aid, and push the policy of NO foreign aid.

2. The argument you use is the same one made on Ron Paul when a "white supremecist" donated a large sum to his campaign, that is:
"If he likes you, and he is a bad man, you must be a bad man"

Now beyond your potentially poor assessment
If the Senate absolutely will not CUT aid to Israel, but will perhaps be willing to submit gradual reduction... well that's better.

From the Politico article I linked...

"Paul insisted Washington should first cut aid to countries with strained ties to America, such as Pakistan and Egypt, and only later wean Israel off aid. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has previously stated he was interested in doing that."
http://www.politico.com/story/2013/01/rand-paul-calls-for-gr...

How is a news report from Politico stating that Rand "insisted" SPECIFICALLY that aid should be cut to Israel's enemies first and then "wean" Israel later and that Netanyahoo agreed, how is that ANY way comparable to some white power group donating to Ron Paul campaign????

Ron Paul has no control over who donates to him. Rand, on the other hand, can control what he INSISTS doing. And Rand INSISTS on cutting aid to Israel's enemies first and then WEANING Israel LATER.

Cutting aid to Israel's enemies is essentially INCREASING aid to Israel. And when does later come? And "wean" means to slowly decrease.

Israel is at the CENTER of the controversy that may very well bring on GLOBAL WAR involving the US, Russia and China. Both Russia and China have strongly suggested that nukes are on the table if the US invades or attacks Iran. Rand is essentially saying his plan is to make Israel even more capable and bolder in stirring up even more provocation to war. Swell.

This is serious business. Perhaps you need to stop flinging nonsensical malformed accusations at me and focus on how Rand's stated goals will bring the world closer to WW3. :\

.

why do you consistently chase rand paul threads and down vote every comment? Are you ill? Well we hope you get well soon.
Seriously.
Why do you waste your time?
Rand does not cater to libs like his dad.
That is the distaste you feel from him.
He doesnt need lib support and doesnt want it.
In fact he would tell you himself, but cant, so i will.
Rand knows libs infected his fathers campaign and will NOT let it happen to him.
That is why you feel his distance from you.
He doesnt WANT your support.

Rand Paul 2016

A couple points....

1) The only Rand thread im aware of is this one.
2) You have no clue what I up or down vote or what my criteria is for doing so if/when I do.

As far as your other comments and questions, there is no context for them since you have no idea what my thoughts are except that I disagree with defunding Israel's enemies while waiting to defund Israel later and that I prefer an approach of spreading the message of liberty with honesty and character instead of being deceptive to woo the zionists.

.
~wobbles but doesn't fall down~

Anyone who comes out in favor...

...of cutting aid to Israel right away will not be elected, period. The pro-Israel evangelical Christians are simply too powerful a voting block. That's a fact, like it or not. If a politician wants to cut aid to Israel, he needs to propose it in a less aggressive way: exactly as Rand has done. The choice is not between something like Rand's proposal and cutting aid right away, the choice is between something like Rand's proposal and nothing. Again, that is a fact, like it or not.

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

The president...

does not choose who gets aid and in what amount. That is up to Congress.

It is a choice between continuing to spread the message of Liberty... or spreading lies to gain office. I choose to support spreading the message of Liberty and how it is important to have character and honesty and perseverance in the face of ridicule.

Ron's message of Liberty and austrian economics is taking root in South America and Eastern Europe. And they admire him for his character and his honesty.

Ron woke up millions for the first time and many of them gave him a chance because they could see his character. This is the path I choose to continue supporting. To continue growing the awakening. When enough have woken up then nothing will be able to stop us. Being dishonest will just make them not trust us and discourage them from having hope.

If Rand gets elected and the hearts of our fellow citizens haven't changed then it will mean nothing and nothing will change. I choose to speak the truth...

~wobbles but doesn't fall down~

Rand's stated goals?

You wrote: "Perhaps you need to stop flinging nonsensical malformed accusations at me and focus on how Rand's stated goals will bring the world closer to WW3."

I am very sure Rand's stated goals (including publicly announcing Israel's enemies will be the first to be cut off) will bring him closer to the Presidency -- which, to me, is great news!
