Rand Paul : Yay or Nay

Rand has shown he is both a friend and enemy to liberty. All I can say at this point is he is no Ron Paul. We have gone over to topics many times but I want to know do you think he is the best option for 2016 or will you be looking for someone else?

"States should be allowed to

"States should be allowed to make a lot of these decisions," Paul said. "I want things to be decided more at a local basis, with more compassion. I think it would make us as Republicans different."

Get your facts right.


I actually like Ron Paul's positions better, even though I have distanced myself from some of the more extreme positions. When Ron Paul was running, I didn't like Rand, in comparison, because of his foreign policy stances, and some of his pro business stances. But when it comes down to fundamental civil rights, I think Rand is spot on, and it is for this that have come to like Rand Paul the most.

Perhaps it is cynical of me, but there is no period in history where equality was actually achieved that really stands out, there has always been a ruling class, and then everyone else. So it seems to me that the only real advancements civilization has made are on civil rights, where the individual is protected from the abuses of power. But that's about it. Maybe we cannot achieve anymore as a society. So as a result, we need someone who will really champion our rights, despite all the other bullshit games that power likes to play.

I haven't exactly thought this position through, it sort of a new realization. But for now, it makes Rand Paul the most appealing. And I won't trust anyone else on these issues.

How about taking a look at the whole menu before ordering?

There will probably be 100s of people (as there always is) submitting their statements for candidacy for POTUS next time around. Let's see 'em all. Isn't that how it's supposed to work? Don't you think that continuing to trust our foreign-controlled, billion dollar media Monopolies to decide who the tiny pool of candidates are that we get to choose from, might be a teeny weeny part of the problem?

I want to know who Joe Schmoe candidate number 312 is because I'm intrigued and curious...but maybe mostly because I know the msm DOES NOT want me to know him. Because He's likely to be that neighbor who cares more about his family and community then the banks and probably can't even spell Israel or point to it on a map. I want to see a society that completely ignores the candidates on tv, not in spite of the fact, but BECAUSE they're on tv. With the Internet, this is the future. But admittedly, old habits die hard.

So "no" on anyone, including Rand, until I see everyone.

nearly complete agreement

However, if constrained by questions of WHAT we know now, and WHOM we know now, the question can be posed as "Are you generally inclined toward or away from Rand?" That should get at least a faltering yea from most of us. Nevertheless, your fundamental posture remains prudent and sound. Let's ponder this more...
