As soon as Rand starts racking up national delegates....

...GB will stick the knife in RPs back, just like he did the last two times, just like he will do the next two times.

Why? Because that is what he does, try to bring in new listeners on the left hand and suck RNC executive committee c**k on the right hand.

SteveMT's picture

Rand has been laying the ground work for a presidential run.

He is the only one that is doing all of the "right things" ... as unpleasant and distasteful as some of them no doubt are, such as the apparent camaraderie with talking heads like Beck and Hannity. The other GOP nominee wanna-bees have done nothing. Christi is already done. Jeb Bush will not be able to overcome the name-associated hatred of the Bush family. Romney is more than done. Cruz is not eligible. Rubio has been on the wrong side too often and is just Romney2.0. Rand is the only game in GOP-ville.

Could the GOP still come up with a trash ticket such as Graham/McCain 2016? Unfortunately, yes. Rand nailed this GOP way of thinking when he said that "the republicans will never win another election in my lifetime without becoming a new GOP." The republicans so far are willing to go down with the GOP-Titanic rather than to undergo any positive change. Rand's quote may be the sad epitaph of the GOP that will be more difficult to overcome than "the curse" was for the Boston Red Sox to dispel.


have to agree that the road to the republican nomination is through the mob of corporatist and duped religious zealots..

Detestable types like Santorum and Beck fit the bill like a glove. It'll be interesting to see if Rand can navigate the waters without putting freedom on the back burner..

Government is supposed to protect our freedom, our property, our privacy, not invade it. Ron Paul 2007

Don't worry

Beck will find a reason to trash Rand at some point, probably right when Rand is gaining ground on the presidency, then Beck will find some"constitutional" issue to attack him on. He does it with everyone. I think he likes to be the only one who is right 100% of the time on everything.

Rand wouldn't be that dumb....

but, Beck could be useful.

"Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is argument of tyrants. It is the creed of slaves." William Pitt in the House of Commons November 18, 1783
"I know major allies who fund them" Gen. Dempsey referring to ISIS

The only perfect candidate is yourself...

Rand says this at the 2;00 mark in the 2016 segment.

That reminded me of a lot of people here. There are quite a few people here who don't like/won't vote for Rand because he's not exactly like his dad or doesn't think exactly like they do.

I agreed with Ron on probably 85-90% of what he said but there was nobody even close to him IMO and that's why I supported him for 6 years/2 campaigns.

Rand made an excellent point in that segment and I hope everybody here watches it.


1:20 to 2:20. 60 seconds of video I wish every DPer would watch. Even if you don't agree, you will come to understand what underlies all my posts (and presumably people like Mike in Vegas). I don't need you to agree; but why have the same, circular, perfect vs good arguments over and over and over again while there is critical work to be done.. is it just to hear yourself talk?

10-15 million more voters need to believe in non-interventionism (liberty) at home and abroad to change America. Minds changed on Syria. Minds changing on privacy. "Printing money" is part of the dialogue. Win minds through focus, strategy.

If Rand Paul Gets 10% Of The Numbers Ron Paul Got...

If Rand Paul Gets 10% Of The Numbers Ron Paul Got That Would Be A MONUMENTAL Achievement.

I believe he'll get more

Don't let your emotions blind you to reality, WS.

I know you're no Rand fan. But whatever you want to happen is independent of what actually will happen.

Keep an open mind, and don't let your hatred for Rand eat you up.

Hatred hurts the hater the most. You may as well say, "I hate you, so I'm going to drink this poison to spite you!"

That's my free bit of "wisdom strategy" for you.

He's the man.
