"Why Rand Paul will win the 2016 primaries, and the presidency"

The Daily Caller:

You have probably seen all of the ridiculous speculating about the GOP nomination in 2016. This is still speculating, but my sincere hope is you don’t think it’s ridiculous too.

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is laying the foundation for his presidential bid in concrete and steel.

First, forget about Jeb Bush unless you want to hand Hillary eight years in the White House. The latest Rasmussen poll shows her leading Jeb in a general election 47 percent to 33. His name is Bush and to the general public the specifics of how smart he is doesn’t matter one iota.

Then there’s Ted Cruz, he’s nothing but a hack. There’s no substance to what he says. He only cares about adulation and applause. When he speaks, it’s contrived and inauthentic. Matt Lewis’s recent piece on Ted Cruz’ strategy illustrated this, pointing out that Ted Cruz is trying to get close to Paul, while sticking to the mainstream GOP foreign policy to not seem to far out there.

Even before Chris Christie’s troubles with the George Washington Bridge and being exposed at the very least for hiring a petty, inept staff he was a poor fit for the Republican party base. His disdain for the second amendment is a major obstacle. Governor Christie has done nothing to restore the gun rights of the people of New Jersey and doesn’t care to. Whether intentional or not, Christie helped Barack Obama get re-elected through his endorsements and photo ops after Hurricane Sandy. In a recent interview with S.E. Cupp on CNN, Glenn Beck said Christie was “a fat nightmare.” Judge for yourself whether he was proven right.

At CPAC, Texas Governor and bad George W. Bush caricature Rick Perry gave a raucous speech that resembled a Southern Baptist preacher rather than a politician. It got big applause, but had nothing but platitudes and researched crowd-pleasing lines written by spin doctors. If you have the delusion that Perry could somehow gain fifty IQ points and be ready to stand on stage to debate men of great intellect, you’re sorely mistaken.

Rand Paul relies on his philosophy and personal convictions. It’s the reason that every single time you hear him speak it sounds more authentic. This cannot be taught, and much of it probably comes from his father. Senator Paul tells you what you need to hear, not always what you want to hear.

Great article

enjoyed reading that!

It's all great to keep

It's all great to keep building off everything that's been accomplished for the past two elections with Ron Paul. But there needs to be a massive amount of focus on dealing with the forthcoming election fraud. All the campaigning in the world won't get Rand elected without some serious solutions to Diebold machines and GOP corruption.

LOL!

He will "win" if TPTB decide he's the "winner". You people are either in total denial or just Neocon shills trying to keep the pretense alive.

Don't Bother

There are like 7 people here who are Randian idolators who will wet the bed over you trying to show them the reality of the system.

Fear not though, they are a small lot, which if they could calculate math, they would realize the splintering of the movement caused by Rand through his treasonous endorsement of Romney, McConnell, his statement on Snowden, his grandstanding on the NSA using information gleaned by Snowden.

They apparently did not pay attention when Iowa was literally stolen from Ron Paul.

It looks like

there are at least 11 of the zionist Israeli/CIA plants (judging from "feedback").

Your flaw

is relying on others endorsements, rather than to look at the actual records. Your flaw, rather than to educate others in voting based upon record and voting their own conscience, is to encourage others to drop out of the system which will allow opposition easy victories. Your flaw is believing that just because you refuse to participate that you will not be required to serve your masters in the form of taxes, fees or whatever it is called these days, and encourage said opposition to create more regulation for the masses.

You are bitter, seek attention and want to lead others down a path that will ensure the socialists complete control.

My neck of the woods is heavily democrat, and neocon, but that is changing because of our outreach. People are now beginning to understand what a representative Republic means, and the control that the individual has in their communities as the Constitution defines.

I am sorry that you fail to understand Ron Paul's message and the r3VOLution that continues.

This is NOT a perfect world, and it never will be. Those in opposition COUNT on you and others to lay down, so that they may accomplish their goals without a struggle.

DUHHHH

>>>>You are bitter, seek attention and want to lead others down a path that will ensure the socialists complete control.<<<

Gratuitous ad hominem personal attack. Avoiding the facts.

>>>>My neck of the woods is heavily democrat, and neocon, but that is changing because of our outreach. People are now beginning to understand what a representative Republic means, and the control that the individual has in their communities as the Constitution defines.<<<

Irrelevant to the fact that the voting and elections are CORRUPTED. No matter who you "outreach", who you convert. The votes will be ignored, disposed of, etc.

>>>>I am sorry that you fail to understand Ron Paul's message and the r3VOLution that continues.<<<

Implication I am stupid. Another personal attack avoiding the facts. There is a pattern of this.

>>>>This is NOT a perfect world, and it never will be.<<<

Never said it was. Irrelevant to the facts.

>>> Those in opposition COUNT on you and others to lay down, so that they may accomplish their goals without a struggle.<<<

Helll-lllOOOO? They already HAVE DONE THAT. Where were you??

???

AllPaul, my post above was not directed at you. I am confused why you responded to me the way that you did, unless you are posting on somebody else's behalf.

But to respond:

I will never dispute that there have been major 'questions' during the 2012 election. Much of it can be found in documentation and on youtube.

I personally have not encountered any wrong-doing at the two precincts that I worked single-handedly - all three of my RP delegates won hands down and were published. Had other precincts focused on what they were tasked to do, we would have yielded higher results.

There is no pattern of me implying that others are stupid. We are each individuals, all with varied talents.

Not a perfect world - I never claimed that you stated that. Those were my words, implying that there is no easy way. If there was, we would have already succeeded.

Where was I? I was there every step of the way, from here to Philly, all the way to Tampa. I also headed up and coordinated the delegate mailing project for most of the states prior to convention (thanks again to all who participated!): http://www.dailypaul.com/248069/flip-flop-mitt

Oh, and I never avoid facts. In fact, facts are my specialty. See my sig :-)

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

HUH?

Did you miss the IOWA CAUCUSES where Bachman was proclaimed winner, then Santorum, and FINALLY, they admitted Ron won? This is election tampering at the highest levels, and I'm not EVEN talking about the premature annointing of an unelected RINO as the "presumptive nominee", receiving GOP support. The magnitude of corruption here is mind-boggling, and you are pretending that VOTING MATTERS???

Now you may proceed with your Leninist personal attacks.

Personal attacks? Just who do

Personal attacks? Just who do you think is the one making the attacks?

And get your facts straight, it wasn't Bachman that was proclaimed the winner.

Bchman was the one initially

proclaimed winner with RP in second place. What are you talking about?

Yes, brilliant aren't they!

Yes, brilliant aren't they! We should all just ignore them so they go away. You know what that sounds like? A neocons wet dream.

you said 7

and had 7 down votes. now 6. i voted you up.
when i read a post like this that cuts straight through the bs and I see down votes i wonder what website i'm at. i wish your post was wrong, but damn some of US have to face the music.

:-)

You should know Allison, that the Rand threads are group bonding sessions where any critical thinking is temporarily suspended, and utopian ideals take control.
They can be quite aggressive if you disturb them..

Partisans

Partisans make me laugh, as they remind me of little children believing in Santa Clause. Had anyone levied an actual viable criticism against Ron Paul, I would engage in discussion, but you see Ron Paul was honest, no BS, no ambitions of grandeur, just right on Liberty on each and every issue.

The only thing I might fault Dr. Paul for is choosing some lousy folks to associate with, but hey we all make mistakes.

Rand however is an opportunist and so painfully obvious that his is not his father nor a "better" version. Now the man with a last name says the US should act strongly against Russia, WTF?

If anything was a cornerstone of Dr. Ron Paul, it was his view on foreign policy and well Rand stinks on that issue time after time.

**

A fair assessment no doubt, but then I saw Rand astride a white horse* somewhere today..I think that might be the perception.
C4L has a strong influence also.
Anyhow, keep holding their feet to the fire, taking the liberty to quote a very wise and honorable man.. someone has to.

BTW been meaning to catch your show, but have a strong aversion to MS social media which tends to limit things.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

"randian idolators"

Is that the 2014 version of a Paultard? You sound remarkably like the vicious trolls who attacked Paul supporters in 08 and 12. Your language is dismissive and belittling, a much different tone than I am familiar with from a member of the liberty movement. Doesn't help that you choose to use a photo of a troll to represent or depict yourself.

Read her response and note how she always throws in her childish jabs at the end like "now go do ____ and ___ ____ ___. It pathetic.

Jeebus You are Cry-Babies

Um RANDIAN is merely a descriptor for those who follow and defend RAND...

...you know like Madisonian, Jeffersonian, Paulite.

Go wash your skirt and stop blubbering over perceived slights against your candidate. Boo hoo.

Sorry to agree but the Rothchild Empire has financed and

controlled the nominee for both parties for the last 40 years. They control the debate, the parties and the voting machines. Today they have more control than ever and to be realistic one must face the reality that the people have lost control of the election process and this government.

We have more power than they do and it is starting to show.

There are millions of us, and only a handful of them.

Not as long

as people keep thinking
that voting matters.

I hope you are right, but don't think it will be easy to beat hillary. It will be a tough fight.

It will be down right

It will be down right dirty...and people will get hurt during the process. It's going to be ugly.

Did you read the second page of the article. There are many great points about how Paul would beat Hillary

Enonesoch

An idea who's time has come:

"Liberty appeals to both genders, enough voters of all political stripes, enough voters in all races and will be seen as the answer to the last 16 years of war and government overreach. This is not to say that you should or do agree with Rand on every single issue. It’s to say that his mentality is not to punish you or outlaw what you don’t have in common with him. In the end, it’s the idea that’s going to win not the man. An idea that spawned the greatest nation in history, and could restore it too."
