I would vote for Pat Buchanan over Rand PaulSubmitted by jay0718 on Tue, 05/14/2013 - 20:12
I've never been the lesser of two evils type of voter (last election I didn't vote), but I've always said if Ron Paul wasn't a presidential candidate that I would vote for a Pat Buchanan or Rand Paul. As Lew Rockwell has pointed out, Rand is not a libertarian but a conservative but I've always thought he would be a better choice than Pat Buchanan was but now I'm not so sure given his recent statements. Plus, loyalty is very important. I remember when Buchanan ran in 1996 and the media said he was done for unless he dropped Larry Pratt from his campaign and Pat refused to back down. Plus he's never backed down from the neocons or sucked up them like Rand has. Rand's treating his father's base like old high school friends he doesn't want to hang out with anymore because he's too mature for them.
Just kind of curious as to how the other Daily Paulers would vote if it came down to Pat Buchanan or Rand Paul.
