There Will Come A Day When Rand Paul Is Asked This Question:Submitted by zooamerica on Wed, 03/06/2013 - 23:33
As history unfolds tonight, in such a remarkable way I'd like to take the time to confront the inevitable, most important question that will be asked, eventually.
Q: Senator Paul, how are you different from your father, Congressman Ron Ron Paul?
Everyone here knows Rand is going to be asked this question if he runs for president. It's going to happen, like the sun will come up tomorrow.
Rand Paul's answer will probably not sit well with many hardcore, loyal Liberty lovers.
Rand Paul's stated foreign policy positions will be (are) quite different from his father's foreign policy views as we all know.
"End the Fed," will probably not be one of Rand's rallying cries...and a gold standard will probably not be talked about much either.
That being said, Rand Paul should be everything the GOP would desire in a presidential candidate in 2016.
Rand is a lot like Ron Paul, but 30 years younger, and has a foreign policy approach that is realistic, not idealistic in political terms.
How many times did you here this...
"I like Ron Paul, but his foreign policy is questionable."
"I like Ron Paul, but he's just too old."
Those were the two biggest, "complaints," I heard in 2011-12.
Rand Paul is in his 40's, and has a more aggressive foreign policy (political) approach - but he's balanced in a very pragmatic, realistic way - hence the Filibuster of the Century.
Some say Rand Paul compromises too much.
Perhaps, but as I type this moment, Rand Paul is drawing a line in concrete, not rhetorical political quicksand.
I STAND WITH RAND
