Chris McDaniel - The next Rand Paul?

Chris McDaniel is a Tea Party Conservative much like Rand, Ted, and Mr. Lee.

McDaniel’s proudest moment back home came when he tried to override a veto from Republican governor Haley Barbour — one of the GOP establishment’s eminent figures — to rein in the state’s aggressive use of eminent domain for redevelopment purposes.

“Private property is one of the cornerstones of our Constitution. And if the government can take it arbitrarily for almost any purpose, then we are not truly a free people,” McDaniel tells me over breakfast in Washington, D.C.
Now he’s taking on Republican senator Thad Cochran, an old-school appropriator who has been serving in Congress for 41 years.

“In my soul I believe I’m first and foremost a Jeffersonian. I admire Taft, of course. I admire Goldwater. Reagan, obviously. I’m very interested in Austrian economics, whether it be Hayek or even earlier philosophers like Bastiat — philosophers that value freedom as opposed to statism,” he says .

I made a video on him a while back:

Did chris O betray his father

Seriously? I don't usually

Seriously? I don't usually like to engage in someone else's debate but here's my 2 cents.

It really seems that the people who hold this grudge against Rand don't fully understand how politics work. It's like you all are children with a notion on how things should be and throw tantrums when it's not.

I'm pretty sure Ron doesn't feel that Rand "betrayed" him. Perhaps he gave him a nod. I don't know and neither do you. The fact is...you don't know the Paul family so quit assuming.

Three words. Get over it.

Three more words. And grow up.

Calling someone a troll is a serious charge.

If someone makes a nonproductive comment, why add to it by making an even more nonproductive comment?

Did you ask yourself the same question?

Why should anyone not call a spade a spade?
There's no evident way to report posts and this type of behavior is against the house rules. I may have done the same in calling him out but his response speaks to prove exactly what I said.

Your response to me, mine to him, and the increasing number of growing posts on this comment chain has completely derailed the thread.

Do you really think no one was going to respond to him? That's the point of flame bait, is to incite a response. Like going into a prayer thread and saying "GOD DOESN'T EXIST YOU'RE ALL IDIOTS" or anything similar.

So instead of giving him his wish of a debate about Rand I called him out on baiting. I'd rather see the thread derailed on calling him out for trolling than it derailed the way he wanted it to be derailed. I thought the end was inevitable so i made a choice. If you wish to punish me than please do so, it's better than nothing happening at all.

I guess that makes me the second Billy Goat. Paging the third Billy Goat... I can't wait to live happily ever after :)

Awesome Rebel Goat Brother!

Let us graze with great joy!

"The Third Billy Goat then gets on the Bridge and is stopped by the hungry Troll. When the troll gets up on the bridge however, the third billy goat is so big that he easily throws the troll into the stream with his horns and crosses the bridge. From then on the bridge is safe, and all three goats are able to go to the rich fields around the summer farm in the hills. They all live happily ever after. The troll, however, was never seen again."

I love happy endings :)

That kind of speech should end immediately.

There are good ways to answer attacks. This is not one of them. You have been warned.

Thanks for proving my point.

Awesome work!

This could be one of the most important races in 2014!

Chris McDaniel has been a State Senator in Mississippi since 2008. And his primary opponent, Senator Cochran, a 76 years old establishment figure.

I'm ready to donate and spread the word.

We should nominate him on: http://libertythatwins.com/
