Lets just hope Rand gets to

Lets just hope Rand gets to pick his VP and the Republican party does not. Does Bush being Reagan's VP ring a bell?

Oh my God

Are unfolding in a recursive loop?

Ugh. I may just vote for Ron Paul anyway. I still hope he runs and then one of them drops out so we can have both in the debates. And bring together a real coalition behind whoever it is It would get our voice out twice what they usually marginalize anyhow you know?

So, they've officially made Rand THE target

Now we can expect the remaining on the list to begin their attacks on Rand.

This should be great fun.

What's to attack?

As far as issues that are important to mainstream Republicans, what has Rand that they can attack?

Everyone has something, of course, but I think he's smartly positioned himself into a relatively attack-resistant lead.

We'll see.

Now the neocons are saying Israel supplied sarin to the Syrian rebels, and Rand has said he stands with Israel.. they don't like the Ron Paul republiCANs who followed Ron Paul into the GOP and stuck around to advance our agenda of restoring the republic.. we are winning and they are going to ramp up the fight.

we'll see and I hope.. because I'm getting the feeling that Obama and the Neos are about to make a big move global.

That's amazing propaganda!

The amount of propaganda spewed over the media: 90% say they support background checks, 90% say they support it and they repeat it over and over and over again.

Then they do a poll on voters and the numbers drastically change - 90% was cut in half to 46%!

Ron Paul May or May Not Attend This Event

I understand Ron Paul is in South America somewhere, possibly Chile. He will be travelling all over the world talking to liberty loving people..

My Shot At Political Junkie'isms

Rand needs to start campaigning in South Carolina ASAP. LOL, That's always the toughest hurdle. I think he's got Iowa and New Hampshire. Then after South Carolina it'll be Florida. Needs to fire off a silver bullet down there. Sorry, heard that in the movie Primary Colors. lol

Didnt SC choose the grinch

Didnt SC choose the grinch last time around?

This is why

All the mainstream republican sites are pushing Ted Cruz all of a sudden. I've seen several pieces mentioning him as a presidential contender in 2016 even though he has never even been asked the question in an interview that I know of. These all came out in the last week or so as it becomes clear that Rubio has completely destroyed his chances by being part of the "gang of eight" amnesty. All the stories cite unnamed sources in the Cruz camp. They are desperate to split the liberty vote and keep Rand from establishing himself as an undeniable frontrunner. If they can't keep Rand from being a frontrunner then they can't ignore his campaign to death, and if they can't ignore him they either have to find some serious dirt on him, or he will win the nomination.
