Idea about why Rand endorsed Mitch McConnellSubmitted by endthefed999 on Wed, 05/01/2013 - 13:11
Hey guys, I don't usually post here, I'm more of a reader here at the Daily Paul, but I just had an idea that I had to share. It is in regards to Rand Paul and his endorsement of Mitch McConnell over presumably a more tea party oriented Republican.
I don't know if anyone on here has discussed this idea before but here it goes. I think Rand's endorsement has to do with the Republicans gaining back a majority in the Sneate. If they win back the Senate than McConnell would become the Majority Leader in all likelihood. This would mean that Mitch would have the ability to bring up the bills. Now what was the knock on Ron Paul when he ran for President? That he was an ineffective legislator passing no bills. And what would endear Rand to the Liberty movement that is currently a little wary of him? What about an Audit the Fed Bill that he authored that would fully investigate the Fed? As most of you remember Harry Reid blocked Rand's chance at passing a bill identical to his dad's which passed the House. Now if it comes to a vote in the Senate and passes, it goes to the President. If he signs it Ron and Rand win, and claim victory. If he vetoes, Rand appeals to the anti-Obama Republicans. If a tea-party candidate beats McConnell, and the republicans still take the Senate, than it is likely Graham or McCain would become the new majority leader. This of course would bode terribly as they would never bring up the audit the fed bill, or any of Rand's other bills.
So that's my idea, what do you guys think?
