The Same People Who Supported Ron Are Not Supporting Rand. Why?Submitted by LibertyOrDeathNJ on Mon, 02/10/2014 - 19:39
Recently, I've been seeing comments through out the internet saying they won't vote for Rand Paul. I totally understand that he has made some mistakes but if he does what Ron has done, he will never be elected, so why not change it up? I heard some one say that Rand is the Obama of the Republican Party. No way! I can't even imagine Rand back stabbing us like Obama has done to his people. In fact, I consider Ted Cruz the Obama of the Republican Party. Ted Cruz is a pure fraud.
People also say, Rand Paul is not a Libertarian. Libertarianism is not a damn religion. It is not about doctrinal purity. The only political movements that succeeded by enforcing doctrinal purity also did so with machine guns and mass executions. Rand brings us one step closer to a Libertarian policy. One step at a time guys!
Too many libertarians are RELIGIOUS about it, and meanwhile forget that there are numerous people who are quite religious about other things and require a lot of convincing just to compromise or work together on issues they do agree on even a little. The Christian right is not going to magically go away, and they are not going to be rational in the way libertarians would like. That means no matter how much libertarians dislike politics they will have to go to the table with them and make some kind of headway about the things they are willing to agree on.
Does Rand Paul have some off ideas? Almost certainly. Is he the best option libertarian policy has right now? Yes. Frankly, we are not even close to having a libertarian policy- we can't even get *conservative* policy to happen, can't even get a budget balanced let alone reduce taxes or government involvement in everything.
Cut Rand Paul some slack!!
