Dear Daily Paulers,

This Chris Kyle film phenomenon represents the fact Americans and Republicans view him as a hero. If you want to reach the ten million voters who tend not to vote for the establishment candidate then you agree Chris Kyle is a hero. How will Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, and Mitt Romney split the establishment vote? So, Rick Santorum, Mike Huckabee, and Rand Paul split the other ten million? If Scott Walker runs he may pick off both kinds of voters.

In war, politicians like Bush

In war, politicians like Bush and Obama are villains, whistle blowers like Snowden are heroes, and soldiers tend to be pawns.

What bothers me so much

What bothers me so much about Rand is that he fails to understand one simple thing: You can't win an argument with a neocon without resorting to honesty! If people continue to think folks like Kyle are heroes, rather than servants for the MIC, he will get no where in a debate. I'm not looking forward to seeing every single other candidate humiliating Rand in the debates. Rand will NOT be able to argue against them if he continues to eschew his father's wisdom.

Yeah, I can't

wait, until, the competition of who loves the Zionist hoax terrorism invoking aparteid state of Israel. Well, I can tell you, I won't be watching, unless, there's a cadidate who is against this Kabbalist envoked brainwashing hoax, enters the race. Rand, bought into this agenda before his election to the Senate, when the neocoms gave him a pass. Then, he chose to make an even bigger mistake trying to align with the apostate evangelicals, who have now brainwashed him in the Kabbalist magik of Israel being the home of the 'chosen' Jews, and 'only' them. Unless, we somehow, some way, get a president who is against this Satanic majik inspired (Kabbalist) illusion of mental degration, the Republic is lost, period!

So what? They have

So what? They have differences of opinion. They're not clones, for crying out loud.

Also, who the hell revived this 2013 thread? Can't these very old threads get locked down at some point?

This has really shaken me to the core

I know that some part of playing the game is a sad fact of life, but this blows my mind. So, we're supposed to support him while telling ourselves that he doesn't really mean that? :(

C'mon cut him some slack...

Dude...seriously? Relax a little bit. It's cheap rhetoric to score political points with the idiotic masses. We know that's what it is. It's nothing to be ashamed of. Rand doesn't have to convince us of anything, it's the 295 million other potential voters he has to convince (and they're generally ignorant and stupid).

Doesn't have to convince us of anything?

Really? Blank check for a politician?

Interesting. That says a lot about you. Willing to give your power away while looking down on "idiotic masses."

Ironic, I'd say.

Since Most American Voters Fail To Know The REAL Chris Kyle

Rand Paul will probably garner several more GOP votes..

More political gamesmanship by the third son of Ron Paul who would never, ever 'PLAY THE GAME'..

Ron Paul, the man who can speak his mind and sleep well at night for it..


Rand Paul

is a shape-shifting reptilian who infiltrated his dad's nut sack and tricked his mom and dad into having him many decades years ago. He is now using the Paul name to promote his neocon beliefs and once he has tricked and harnessed the vast power of the 30 people in the libertarian party, he will return to his home planet X nibiru and gather up his alien troops to complete his takeover of the Paul family and then the world. I'm glad some of you are on to him and will fight his evil agenda.

Rand said,
"Chris Kyle was a hero like all Americans who don the uniform to defend our country. "


Signing up for a government job and putting on a uniform does not make someone a "hero".


suckered by another old article

Old article...

Old post, old information, madia spin, different era when Kyle was shot.

If you wish to understand Kyle, read his book. The movie is typical 'Hollywierd' disinformation or CFR sheeple programming, and of course, done long after the truth can be refuted by it's late owner.

Yep . . Old Article

Dug up by somebody, to get the flames a roaring.

Yup, the article was from Feb

Yup, the article was from Feb 4th, 2013.

I thought it was odd - the timing.

I wish people would mention this when they dredge these old posts up.

There is and will always be

Only one Ron Paul. Rand is not Ron, and it's unlikely he will ever be, even if he did spring from his loins.

Ron's time in politics is over! He is not a politician, and never was. Rand is. Ron was always the lone voice in the wilderness. He still is and will continue to be an educator until the day he dies.

This is the daily Paul.

If Rand's statement

is to be taken at face value, he is basically proposing that hero become a standard synonym of serviceman, soldier, enlisted person, etc. Which makes the statement less silly, since it's just a cut and dried change of definition and bears no further content.

Good point!

It may garner him some additional support from the neocon faction, but Rand has gained far more respect and support from African Americans by building upon his father's efforts to highlight the racial disparities in the "war on drugs." I know several African Americans who have told me that they plan to switch partys and vote for Rand for his stand on that issue alone.

that's gonna happen!

Bradley Manning? Edward Snowden? Now THEY are heroes.

Give me a break, Rand.

Just a clash of worldviews.

Hard to sell a war hero around here, regardless of the situation. I didn't know Chris Kyle personally and didn't serve with him so how could I know.

Oxford dictionary defines Hero as:

"A person, typically a man, who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities"

He was a sniper fighting in an unjust war in my opinion but does his actions constitute that he was a murderer? I think that depends on what he did and to whom. For all we know Chris Kyle believed in the people that sent him there. I see these men most of the time as victims of a broken system no one has had the power or maybe the will to challenge. Then again I come back to a position of us , humanity being responsible for the continuation of all of this. We obviously appreciate our comfort over these lives that we bemoan over the internet. Good for us. We deserve a pat on the back I presume.

I'd hate to be Rand in that position. I probably wouldn't be a Senator for long. Resume our safety behind the echo chamber.

Rand is falling from favour of the neocons....as expected

last i heard Rubio was ahead of him even....

lots a good the "game" is doing......


Rand might be playing Politics, but this one bothers me. I do not support Chris Kyle. He is a murderer...

What Rand Paul gave up for his neocon asskissing......

being a candidate ANYONE could get excited about.

Bradley Manning wore an Army uniform

but I don't recall Rand calling him a hero.

Sen. Rand Paul raised some eyebrows when he stated that he does not have a lot of sympathy in regards to whistle-blower Bradley Manning’s verdict and a several surprising statements concerning NSA leaker Edward Snowden at a Cato University event.

Manning faces a maximum jail sentence of 136 years with multiple convictions of Espionage Act violations, but was declared “not guilty” for aiding the enemy.


The ultimate humiliation awaits Rand Paul

when after years of neocon asskissing he is rejected by the GOP anyway. They will NEVER forgive him for being Ron Paul's son.

You broke the unwritten law, Randy. You turned on your friends. When you do that, your enemies don't respect you, and you ain't got no friends no more. You got nobody.....

To everyone critiquing this statement: pipe down

This is called 'politicking' and appealing to the democratic mob. Every other politician does it without shame, and Rand is smart to do it too.

At least when Rand does it, it is with the goal of liberty in mind. Why should all these other war-monger politicians get to score points with cheap rhetoric, but the real statesmen shouldn't?

Sure, it isn't exactly purist. But scoring politically with a simple statement isn't going to hurt anyone, especially when the entire populace is completely mired in the propaganda praising this soldiers life.

As the comment above points out....

kissing up to the neocons, visiting Israel a thousand times, and any other thing Rand tries to do will not put him in the good graces of the establishment. He can play politics all he wants, he will NEVER be accepted by TPTB.
