When the presidential buzz began building around Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) a couple of years ago, the expectation was that his libertarian ideas could make him the most unusual and intriguing voice among the major contenders in the 2016 field.
But now, as he prepares to make his formal announcement Tuesday, Paul is a candidate who has turned fuzzy, having trimmed his positions and rhetoric so much that it’s unclear what kind of Republican he will present himself as when he takes the stage.
“He’s going to get his moment in the sun,” said David Adams, who served as campaign chairman for Paul’s insurgent 2010 Senate campaign. “What he does with it from there will have bearing on the Republican Party.”
There are at least two areas where Paul has moved more in line with the conservative Republican base, somewhat to the consternation of the purists in the libertarian movement: adopting a more muscular posture on defense and foreign policy, and courting the religious right.
I just could not resist the ironic humor of Senator Rand Paul announcing for President at the GALT Hotel (It’s actually the Galt House Hotel and it looks like the kind of place I plan to take Nina for our 25th Anniversary in 2018 Lord willing!) in Lousiville, Kentucky. Might give “Going Galt” a new meaning.
So what’s the difference between presidential candidates Rand Paul and Ted Cruz?
Ted Cruz is running against Barack Obama. Rand Paul is running against Hillary Clinton. One represents the past. The other represents the future.
Both men are U.S. Senators running for president in 2016. Rand Paul is from Kentucky, Ted Cruz is from Texas. (Rand Paul is expected to announce on April 7, 2015.)

New Executive Order Gives Government Legal Authority to Seize An Individual’s Funds Without Prior NoticeSubmitted by Jao171 on Sat, 04/04/2015 - 13:28
For someone who once taught Constitutional Law at the University of Chicago Law School, President Obama sure knows how to walk all over the Constitution. Barack Obama’s latest assault on the Constitution comes in the form of an Executive Order that would prohibit donations to the likes of Edward Snowden and allows for the government to confiscate an individual’s funds without notice.
The Executive Order is titled “Blocking the Property of Certain Persons Engaging in Significant Malicious Cyber-enabled Activities.” The EO declares a national emergency to deal with the threat of

J.C. Watts to endorse Rand Paul
When Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky kicks off his campaign for president on Tuesday, one of the people who will endorse him and share the stage is former Representative J.C. Watts, one of the few black Republicans to have served in Congress.
Mr. Watts is expected to be a vocal surrogate for Mr. Paul, who has made clear he is trying to show he can broaden the Republican Party’s base to newer voters.
