Rand Paul: Dems afraid I'll run in 2016

By LUCY MCCALMONT | 8/24/14 | Politico

Sen. Rand Paul says Democrats are afraid his stance on war and foreign policy would attract independents and "even some Democrats" if he were to run against Hillary Clinton for president in 2016.

“I think the American public is coming more and more to where I am and that those people, like Hillary Clinton, who — she fought her own war, 'Hillary’s war,' you know?" Paul said in an interview that aired Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press."

"And I think that’s what scares the Democrats the most — is that in a general election, were I to run, there’s going to be a lot of independents and even some Democrats who say, ‘You know what? We are tired of war. We’re worried that Hillary Clinton will get us involved in another Middle Eastern war because she’s so gung-ho.’"

...that "we" have a "choice" aren't you??

Personally, when I mark my "ballot" and am forced to feed it into a computerized "counting" device I have NO idea who I "voted" for.

Paper ballots... HAND counted... the ONLY way (and we shouldn't care if it means we don't know the results until 3 or 4 days later).

Actually what works is if you're a precinct leader and you march your precinct. Over time you get an idea of how many people will vote and for who. Check out the numbers for your precinct only and make sure they seem about right.

This is actually what the entire C4L movement was all about back in 2009.

That must be how they retired

That must be how they retired ron paul early and keept his son out of the senate , how they took down amash and massie , or how they kept marijuana from becoming legal in Co and Wa .

It was probably outside the margin for tampering.

Big bump

Rand's just been killin' it lately.
