Rand Paul 2016 campaign - who is with me?

Senator Rand Paul is on fire!
It looks to me like he already started his 2016 campaign with successful attacks against his potential opponents.

Liberty patriots activists let's jump-start Rand Paul 2016 presidential campaign - who is with me?

Will not happen

"we've got to get Democrats to get behind him.."

That will not happen since Rand is a pro-war neoconservative. The reason that Ron would have won the presidency if the nomination had not been stolen from him is that he appealed to the anti-war democrats and independents. Rand only appeals to the pro-war neocons and that is not enough to win.

Sorry Rand lovers, but that is the reality. Take it from someone who has been at this since 1960.

You're living in an alternate universe.

On what planet is Rand Paul a "pro-war Neocon" and on what planet are Democrats more dovish than Rand Paul? Hilary Clinton supported the Iraq invasion and almost beat Obama. Obama bombed Libya Neocon-style and was even more bold and honest about it than the Neocons were about Iraq. He openly admitted it was to overthrow a foreign regime and spread democracy. On top of that, Obama has signed crippling sanctions into law against Iran and has now fully thrown his support behind the rebels in Syria. If Rand's two votes for sanctions against Iran were enough to cause Democrats not to support him, those Democrats wouldn't have voted for Obama in 2012.

I'm in

Lets get this thing going.

If we organize we can knock on every door in America over the next 3 years. Everyone should know the name Rand Paul

if Hillary is to be his opponent...then, may I..

....remind us that Hillary got her walking papers handed to her by Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson on the Benghazi hearing..."what difference does it make?" She asks...in response to WHY she and the White House and top brass would never squash the narrative that a YouTube video made them assault and kill those in our embassy....oh dear Hillary...we will NEVER forget your non-excuse for lying!

I know. What a cop out if I

I know. What a cop out if I never heard one. She completely ditched the question and he let her.

Nope. Ron's the only Paul who

Nope.

Ron's the only Paul who could reawaken my interest in participating in a political movement again.

Absent that I'm done with politics, other than watching what the bastards are up to in order to protect myself and my family.

Good plan

I'm sure "watching what the bastards are up to" while doing absolutely nothing to stop it will prove extremely productive./sarc

The best way you can protect you and your family

is by becoming a political junkie (that includes voting). Your little AR's aren't going to stop your taxes from climbing or the IRS from collecting. Likewise, your bullets aren't going to stop prices from going up at your local stores. Plus, your underground cave that you get to from the secret door in your basement isn't going to stop the federal government and your state government from using your tax dollars in ways that you highly disapprove of.

Nope, the best way to protect

Nope, the best way to protect my family now is to have as little to do with Leviathan as possible. Pay the ransom to stay out of prison but otherwise avoid the beast.

Ron Paul, a man who never compromises libertarian principles, awoke (some of) the remnant, including me, but now the political side of the movement is fracturing into the compromisers vs the purists. A fractured movement is a much weaker movement, one with no chance to succeed any time soon.

I simply won't work, politically, with the compromisers. When you compromise libertarian principles to win you have already lost the war.

You can give up

Just don't bitch when the brown shirts kick down your door.
If you don't continue to try, you have no reason to cry.

So regardless of the fact

So regardless of the fact that i've spent 40 years fighting the good fight, unless I continue to waste my time supporting someone with whom I have major disagreements then I have no right to complain when the empire falls (as it will, regardless on Rand's success or lack thereof)?

You could fight for a thousand years.

The fight for Liberty NEVER ends.
It is a never ending struggle.

I never said anything about Rand and neither did you, don't try and put words in my mouth or twist the argument.

That's called a straw man.

This entire thread is about

This entire thread is about Rand. I said I'm done with politics and that Rand doesn't inspire me to continue. No straw man, just your assumption that I'm somebody who has never cared.

If Rand and his Neocon

buds start kicking doors in they might get a surprise.

Yeah

because Rand trying to restore the fourth amendment is an obvious precursor to violating it.

Some of you guys sound really deranged sometimes.

Who is with you?

Well, it looks like Romney, Santorum, Huckabee, Gingrich, Bush, Cheney, and all of the other neocon RINOS are with you.

So why are you hanging-out at the DP? You know that the "Paul" in Daily Paul, refers to Ron and not Rand don't you?

Right...

...because those people will be supporting Rand in 2016? In short, WTF are you talking about?

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

LOL!

Good one!

I am for PEACE...

and Rand Paul gives us our best shot for Peace.

Rand Paul 2016 for Peace

Rand Paul 2016 for Peace

If by "peace"..

If by "peace" you mean fighting Israel's wars for it, then you are correct. All of the non-5hit-house-rat-crazy people define "peace" differently however.

I think Rand said that he

I think Rand said that he would stand by Israel if they needed to defend themselves. He also said that war had to be voted on and approved by congress.

Peace for

SOME, death for others. A pox on Rand and his Neocon chums.

A pox on paid trolls like you

.

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

Like to call names? LOL!

It sure is easier than defending Neocon Rand!!!

Not me, and not the DP

As I have stated umpteen times. If you want to push a candidate the way you pushed GJ Tom, you can take it somewhere else. I'm not living though that terrible period of division again.

Everyone was united behind Ron, and if they weren't, I banned them to create a nice little oasis here - a walled echo chamber of support for Ron Paul. It was not the case that people were united behind GJ, and it is not the case that they are united behind Rand.

The Daily Paul is non partisan, and non candidate specific. If you want to call people stupid, or fight and argue, then you can take is somewhere else.

The only way to create unity here would be to ban half the site, and I'm not going to do that.

To be mean is never excusable, but there is some merit in knowing that one is; the most irreparable of vices is to do evil out of stupidity. - C.B.

I did downvote this to start with.

But after thinking about it I had to change my mind.

I want so badly for someone championing liberty to win and maybe Rand is just that person but it is hard to defend all his comments and he is not intellectually consistent.

If the DP did align itself with Rand he could take us down with his ship if he were to not live up to the standards of Ron Paul.

I like you. I respect you. I veiw you as a star on the liberty tree. You have played a major role. Someday when we will have won our freedom...and our history books tell the truth...you will be named.

Just wanted to say so.

Well said.

Some day kids in school will read in their history books about MN and so many others who helped in the restoration of the Republic.
