Rand Vs Rubio

This article lays it out the way I see it:

For a life-sized representation of the identity crisis that’s been plaguing the Republican Party since the 2012 election, look to Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky.

Voted for Obama’s National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which allows the military to arrest any citizen without a warrant, trial or lawyer. Senate Amendment 1126 was introduced to prohibit the federal government from detaining US citizens without due process and trial, Rubio voted Nay. Voted for the reauthorization of the Patriot Act, which allows U.S. government to spy on, search and seize the property, papers and communications of individuals without a constitutionally-guaranteed finding of probable cause for that action.

Supports an interventionist foreign policy. In a speech, Rubio outlined an aggressive vision of American foreign policy, criticizing his colleagues on the left and the right for supporting a restrained future for the nation. During a time in which American politicians should restrict their attention to domestic issues in the aftermath of the last recession, Rubio stands out as a lawmaker openly willing to pour taxpayer resources into foreign projects and initiatives. "I disagree with voices in my own party who argue we should not engage at all, who warn we should heed the words of John Quincy Adams not to go 'abroad, in search of monsters to destroy,'" he said. "I left the last page of my speech," he said, flipping through the papers and looking to Lieberman for some help. "Does anyone have my last page?" A man on the stage handed him the page, and Rubio went on to finish his address, quoting former British Prime Minister Tony Blair about how interventionism is part of America's "destiny."

it was very telling seeing rubio

turn up at the filibuster.

My opinion, it was a biased article and I didn't care for it.

I'm in FL and have had dealings with Rubio and he will never get my vote again, for any office.

It was biased as a GOP perspective

And it told how the GOP was pushing Rubio, and then Rand stepped up and Rubia began changing his tune..to Rand's.. and it talks about how this happened before in the tea party, which it gives Ron Paul credit. I thought it was fair becuase it made Rubio to be the GOP robot and even says Rand is the real deal.
