Politico: 5 Reasons You Should Take Rand Paul Seriously

"A few weeks ago, Rand Paul was far down the list of 2016 GOP presidential prospects — a freshman senator with a devoted but mostly marginal following of young libertarians.

Now he’s being mentioned in the same breath as Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush.

With his filibuster against the Obama administration’s drone policy, a first-place finish in the Conservative Political Action Conference presidential straw poll — and on Tuesday, a speech pressing for immigration reform — the Kentuckian is on a roll. The Iowa Republican Party announced Tuesday that Paul will headline their Lincoln Day Dinner on May 10, a coveted invitation for any GOP presidential hopeful."

Say whatever you want about Rand....

You can say whatever you want about Rand, but I have been with him all the way, through all the bashings, through all the loss of confidence, through all those jumping ship. But, I Trust Rand! He is doing what Ron Paul couldn't, and that is work the political system. And in playing the system, he is doing just that, "having" to play the system. You must understand that and read through whatever Rand is saying or doing. Rand is our Trojan Horse to the Whitehouse, don't forget that.

Hell YEAH!!!!!!

Begin sarcasm and smart-assery...

You 'know' Rand and what is in his mind and his plans, you are 'with' Rand, you 'support' Rand, hell, you may even 'deify' Rand, but even more importantly, you 'trust' Rand!!!

All hail Rand, the Trojan Horse carefully placed within the establishment, who stands for freedom, liberty, truth, justice and the American way!!!!

Yee-haw...hell yeah...and can I get a hearty amen....

...are like reading the stall in the public bathroom. Little, if any useful, thought-provoking dialog going on. Thank God for the Daily Paul!

Here we go again.

Same rhetoric used for Ron Paul - I am neither young or a libertarian and am tired of being excluded by the media - not that I really care what the MSM thinks but it does turn people my age away when they are still relying on the MSM for their news.

"The Liberty Movement"

Good article. Of course they're obligated to hint around that Rand is really 'an Aqua-Buddha racist', but I'm honestly surprised they even uttered the phrase "Liberty Movement". At least they're now acknowledging the real conflict and those they've been covertly fighting against.

This is shaping up into what it should be, The Freeloader Movement Vs The Liberty Movement.

Who will win out, or is it an eternal conflict?

Who represents freedom...
Who represents justice...
Who's legitimate...

We all have legitimate points to make when the world is filled with covetous people who hate each other and who'd turn their back on those who need help love and charity.

Rand, while you're at it

Rand, while you're at it please tell the truth about Lincoln. The man was a racist and a tyrant to whom I would personally group in with the likes of Hitler, Pol Pot, & Saddam Hussein.

Lincoln was a tyrant, however......

However, trying to convince the public of that does absolutely nothing to help our movement. I'm not saying Rand should be singing Lincoln's praises, but outting Lincoln as the Tyrant he was would do massive damage to Rand. People still don't understand why he would have any issues with the Civil Rights Act, so if he then says anything negative about Lincoln, he will be branded a racist and quickly dismissed from consideration for President.

Free market capitalism isn't right for America because it works better. It's right because it's free (and it works better).

Gotta agree with snake pit.

Gotta agree with snake pit. Meet the public where they're at.

...And they're not yet at the place to hear that Father Lincoln wasn't the vampire-killin' slave-freein' hero our public-educated children have lernt him to be.

No Sh*t :

"They may be a minority, but they are a devoted one. Paul supporters will drive farther and work harder than any other 2016 contender’s core backers. They also tend to be younger and engaged on social media and the blogosphere in ways that people who support someone of the older generation like, say, Jeb Bush are not."

God grants liberty only to those who love it, and are always ready to guard and defend it. – Daniel Webster

Awesome news!

Thank you!
