Don't get me wrong, I like Tom a lot but to try and push him to POTUS material is a waste of time and last i checked the way things are going we don't have time to be BSing around with 'dreams' that dont have a ice cubes chance in hell of happening....We need to get somebody in there that will reverse some of this crap going on right now and Rand will do it and he is the best shot we have right now! This country can not stand much more of this garbage and live to tell about it. Rand would be a excellent start to advance our goals and get things headed back in the right direction. Failure accomplishes nothing...

Rand said...

his dad's supporters were unhinged kooks sending him death threats. :\

Right around the time he endorsed Romney.

And then he rants about cutting off all foreign aid... except for Israel of course.

Three strikes. I pass... :)

~wobbles but doesn't fall down~

Except Isreal?

Maybe you should do some research before you strike.

Andrew Napolitano for President 2016!

Either...

you don't get out much or have difficulty with subtleties...

Rand wants to cut aid to Israel's ENEMIES first, which Nutanyahoo is happy about... and then only cut Israel's aid SLOWLY and GRADUALLY. What a joke! In other words a comparative net GAIN of aid to Israel.

It's like when they "reduce the growth" of spending. Just lies and deception.

Rand is beginning to take on the appearance of a knee-pad and yarmulke wearing weasel.

It's HILARIOUS that you are precisely guilty of what you have accused me of. :>

Ron Paul wanted to cut

Ron Paul wanted to cut DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION first ... and then only cut Social Security SLOWLY and GRADUALLY. What a joke! In other words a comparative net GAIN of Social Security.

Ron Paul is beginning to take on the appearance of a New-Deal-loving weasel.

It's even more HILARIOUS that you are precisely guilty of what I have accused you of. :>

Andrew Napolitano for President 2016!

LOL

Reading some of the off the wall irrational garbage some of the people in here who don't understand politics and the way things work were writing when he strategically endorsed Ramrod i would say that if he did say that, he was simply telling the truth...I will vote for Rand and so will his father ;)
Its simple really, if you pass on Rand then you are passing on many of your freedoms being restored. I guess it all boils down to what matters more to you doesn't it ? :)

So...

people who don't vote for Rand are anti-freedom?

Gee... :\

.
~wobbles but doesn't fall down~

People

who would pass on Rand who IS Liberty minded and WILL restore many freedoms lost in times like these because he's not as 'pure' as his father or said something like you are saying he said obviously do not value their freedoms, the Constitution or their rights as Americans as much as they would like us to believe.
For instance, if all these people including myself who value their second amendment rights and understand that once lost there is nothing more to be gained took it upon ourselves to pass on Rand because he said something that made us angry or took a stance on a couple of issues we don't agree with while still retaining many beliefs we do agree with and then we went out and voted for somebody we like better knowing all the while they don't stand a chance would be kind of ridiculous and unproductive in our goals would it not ?

I'm not angry...

and I love guns and I love for people to have guns and I wish that everyone had more. Machine guns even! :D

If I was president I would sign an EO that every able-bodied male that went through basic training would be issued a new model assault rifle every 10 years for life. And a mess of ammo. For them to do whatever they want with. :)

Tom Woods 2016

~wobbles but doesn't fall down~

I didnt say

you were angry but you are obviously upset that he said that or you wouldn't have brought it up. I myself would vote for Tom if he had a chance of winning. Rand isn't a Romney and Rand isn't his father but Rand does share many on my beliefs and Rand will restore freedoms and turn much of this mess around if he gets elected and that is good enough for me. I don't vote for the lesser of two evils as i didn't vote for Romney but Rand is far from evil. He's not perfect but he can get things done and advance our goals and possibly even pave the way for somebody as strict as his father or even Tom to be excepted in the near future...You have to start somewhere and Rand is a good start...

Actually..

I'm very mellow and a touch of whimsical at the moment. 3 to 1 ratio perhaps. :)

I like Tom Wood's vision and message better...

.
~wobbles but doesn't fall down~

You're a troll...

...and you've inhabited other usernames on the Daily Paul.

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

You were...

Hitler's gay lover and your dog is ugly and your breath stinks.

I've only had two usernames on Daily Paul. One back during the 2008 campaign.. and then this one.

.
~wobbles but doesn't fall down~

But

(I like Tom Wood's vision and message better)... doesn't change anything or restore your rights does it?... Which means more to you, your rights as a American, the Constitution or Tom Woods 'vision' ?....
If i had a 'vision' that i had won the lottery should i stop working and making money ? That is what your saying to me right now...

Samuel Adams

???

You said:

"Which means more to you, your rights as a American, the Constitution or Tom Woods 'vision' ?"

False set of choices. The Bill of Rights is contained in the Constitution. And Tom Woods specializes in Constitutional issues.

You are talking of some prophetic mystical vision. That is not the same as a non-mystical plan to work towards a future hoped for change. Are you sleepy or on cold meds? :D

If you refuse to be coherent there is no sense in our dialogue. :p

And please don't project anger on me again. I am still mellow and whimsical.

.
~wobbles but doesn't fall down~

I did not

project anger on to you, YOU did that to yourself outlining it as a reason to not support Rand. If it did not upset you then you wouldn't have used that as a reason! Its a weak position to take regardless of how you look at it.
I understand the Bill of Rights is written in the Constitution and whether or not Tom specializes in Constitutional issues , it doesn't have any bearing on policy changes that reinstate the rights we have lost because he has zero chance at gaining a position to make his vision a reality and Rand does which does indeed make your support of him for POTUS a prophetic mystical vision....a Pie in the Sky if you will...another failure in the making....

I am voting for Rand

I think he will win too. He is doing all the right things in the Senate. Remember he won against all the evil forces working against him in KY. He has a knack of appealing to people despite all the negative propaganda.

I Will Vote For Rand Paul

Considering that Ron Paul voted for Bush in 2000, Rand Paul would make a much better President. Keep in mind that as President his primary power will be VETO's and WAR. Does anyone here really think Rand Paul will go to war without a full declaration? I REALLY don't understand what you guys are smoking. As some of you know, Rand has mad his opinion on gay people rather clear, and yet, I'll vote for him if he's running. He'll be a helluva lot better than a Romney (haha) or Rubio (haha)

Rand Paul will defend individual liberty as President than ANYONE ELSE I CAN THINK OF, EXCEPT for people NOT RUNNING.

"Except for those people not (yet) running!"

That final sentence may become a very important consideration when one considers Rand Paul, the possible field of contenders, and the as-yet completely unknown political, media, and legal environment prevailing in that Presidential election year!

Rand Paul may not be the best contender in the GOP field by then.

PEACE AND FREEDOM!!

Rand Will Be GOP Front Runner

Rand Paul will be the best then too.. By then I bet he's a front-runner in the GOP race and someone who will not be a SQUISHY MODERATE. Rand Paul represents the ONLY person on this Earth who can somehow unite us with neocons. The debt issue will slowly push the GOP back to it's non-interventionist roots, I think. We just need to be patient.

Rand is Inside and is Fighting the Establishment Den of Lions...

so he must "play" as one, for now...(until his Inauguration Jan 2017).

I have the utmost confidence

that Rand will undo many of the unconstitutional acts done in the last 12 years should he get elected....He may not be as strict as his father but HE WILL make this country a much better place than it is now and restore many of the freedoms we have lost during 8 years of the Bushleaguer and 8 years of his twin Obozo the clown and no matter how you slice it, that is a plus for this country, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights , our kids and grand kids AND Liberty! IF you truly care about these issues then you should understand that restoring freedoms is better than staying the course we are on now!
Of course we could always vote for Ventura or something and garner another 3% of the vote and get a big fat ZERO done and stay the course to complete disaster...seems the choice is clear to people who really care about these things...for the few who are irrational in their ideology and seem to think they will eventually HAVE IT ALL in one candidate and who are stuck on failure... not so much....
Rand Paul 2016 !

No thanks. Unless Ron runs

No thanks. Unless Ron runs again I'll be sticking with my party. I will NEVER vote for the GOP again, not after the way things went down.

I think it's a little early

I think it's a little early to announce this soon. People just finished the 2012 elections.

Obama hasn't even been

Obama hasn't even been officially crowned King of America yet...

So Rand isn't pure. Stop being idealists!

I haven't posted here in a while, but this anti-Rand stuff is ridiculous. Rand has access to something that Ron did not. That is, traditional Republicans. You want to be so pure that you're an angry, us against the establishment, purist campaign loser? We need a victory folks. Rand is our man. Even if he ran this year, the right was his to take at some point (they swayed so hard from one candidate to another). The right was never Ron's to take. Get everything you have behind Rand. What would Ron do????

Please don't ever...

say "Folks" when trying to coerce people, especially after ad-hominem attacks should we choose not to support Rand. There are PLENTY of reasons not to support Rand, and one could argue many reasons to support Rand. This is the wrong crowd to talk down to us as if you know something we don't. If you want to promote Rand, there are many ways to go about it but it feels a bit insulting for come down on those of us who were with Ron from the beginning. You can convince yourself that Rand is whatever you want him to be. Me on the other hand, I am crystal clear on Rand, his past and his political style.
