Via EPJ:

Rand Paul gets the ultimate establishment seal of approval.

Link to Time article, written by Sarah Palin!

By Sarah Palin | April 18, 2013

When the Tea Party movement wanted to send a message to the Senate in 2010, it elected a clear-sighted eye doctor from the Bluegrass State.

gets the cover his dad should have had because the propaganda machine recognizes that as a Neocon he is no real threat to the Staus Quo. He is controlled opposition.

TIME is sure desperate to

TIME is sure desperate to sell magazines, perhaps they do bot want to go the way of Newsweek.

Its about economics, stupid.

Thomas Jefferson 1796, 1800, 1804; James Madison 1808, 1812; Ron Paul 1988, 2008, 2012; Rand Paul 2016.

That spot belongs to RON PAUL!!!

Rand is only where he is because of his father and WE, THE R3VOLUTION!!! I WANT RON PAUL ON THAT COVER!!! Well deserved for Ron Paul! The establishment hated Ron, Ron was their true enemy!!! A man of freedom and liberty!!! They hate that!!!

Of course they had to use probably the worst picture they could

find of him, because he's actually very good-looking.



and they wonder why their pandering ignorance isn't selling anymore???

Screw you TIME.

Its an intellectual tabloid filled with a few big words and long sentences to make people feel smart.

Thank the LORD for the internet. So happy I turned those speakers off once I had the opportunity to do so!!!

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

Wow.... controlled opposition by collective passivism

Thats a Ron Paul nose!

I think Rand is going to look much more like my hero in a decade than he does now. Looking back on how his dad looked in the 80's...if Rand is lucky he will begin to look like the Thomas Jefferson of our day, Dr Ron Paul, when he gets older. Hopefully he will become more anti-state like my hero too!

"Sweet 16"

I hadn't heard that ... sounds nice!

This is AMAZING!

This is AMAZING!


Makes me mad enough to swear. Jesus would have passed and Rand should have too!

Ron Paul didn't Pass

when they featured him in the magazine.

That is true. Still mad

That is true. Still mad though. Pop shoulda been on the cover in 08 if the rag was what it pretends to be. Got alot of mixed feelings about this

I hear ya but The Man will have his day,

the kind that Time Magazine or anyone else on the planet has ever seen.

We'll make sure of it. :-)

I hear you - I'm still p*ssed about where they put Ron

on the cover last year, total rudeness.

The New World Order is Burning Down!!

If Rand keeps this up we will allw him into "The Peoples" House..


Pretty Awesome To See How Far We Have Come

in 2009 Ben Bernanke was on the cover


Many of us here have voted on a Time's website poll for him.

I'm glad Rand made the list, but

It pisses me off because Ron should be on it.

However they get into the

However they get into the White House is the thin edge of the wedge for us and our movement.

at first...

at first i thought the same thing.. then i looked down at my RON Paul SIVLER round and smiled. ;)

I use Blue Wave, but don't expect one of THEIR silly taglines.

i hope

i hope little paul is just feigning allegiance to the neo cons so if he gets elected he can pursue liberty full bore. its the same thing romney and all those other guys did in the election pretend their pro liberty, or pro-whatever to try and get votes.


I'll take liberty pursued at half bore

I'll take liberty pursued at half bore at this point. Heck, 10% bore would be far better than what we're getting lately.

totally agree. cant get caught in the black in white, now or never, 100% liberty candidate or no one, or else nothing well ever change for the better

It's like I say when somebody says I'm an extremist on Gun Control.

"Extremist? I'm a moderate! I only want to repeal HALF the anti-gun laws ... this year." B-)

I've thought for years that Ron and Rand were playing "good cop / bad cop" with the neocons. Ron runs his incorruptible integrity number while Rand commiserates with the neocons (or whomever) on whatever their current hot button issue is and SEEMS to meet them half way - while educating them on the arguments and on other issues where they might convert to a pro-freedom positon.

But even if Rand is completely his own man rather than a clone of his dad AND is only a refractory libertarian on HALF the issues, that's a HELL of a lot better than the rest of the field, with their headlong rush into totalitarianism.

I'm neutral on Rand at the moment, so I hate to draw this comparison, but why does he have a striking resemblance to Lee Harvey Oswald, especially in this picture?

Because the photo editor of

Because the photo editor of Time is a flaming liberal and picked a shot that makes him subtly look bad without making it LOOK like he's trying to make him look bad?
