Not my reason

It's not my reason. I don't view Rand as an evil. I don't like his social conservatism, but we only have to wait out the social conservatives because in a couple generations, they'll have mostly died off. I do like his economic and fiscal philosophy. His stance on civil liberties is excellent, (though not perfect where it intersects with social conservatism). He wants to dramatically reduce America's foreign presence and end the wars. Right now this is about expelling the neocons from the party. Many have openly said that in a Rand Paul nomination, they will support the Democratic nominee. By the nature of the Republican Party, they will be totally repudiated after that. Once we've purged the neocons and socialists, then we can fight the culture war with conservatives for yet another re-branding of the party. For now, we need the social conservatives. That's my view...
