Doing the same thing and expecting to get a different outcome is the definition of insanity.
Somebody needs to capture a solid majority of the Republican base and do something even Romney wasn't able to do: get that base passionate about them.
I'm sure Pat Robertson is a nice man. But he lacks the fire and charisma and youth and nerves of steel and he is too well known to the Enemies Domestic. He can't win.
Rand Paul is something new and something different. He is shrewd and he is smart and he is wired-in and, most of all, he is enough of an unknown quantity that he can't be easily labelled and dismissed as a "Libertarian" or "idealist" or "nut" and he hasn't a wall of hardened and heavily armed enemies organized against him from the get-go. Rand is a very successful professional who reached perhaps the pinnacle of the medical profession: an eye surgeon, people! Nerves of steel are required for that profession, people. And Rand has NEVER lost an election campaign. And he's leaped into a leadership role in the media and the Senate -- a more startling assent than even Obamanation! People are ... enthralled and .... confused!! It's brilliant! It's so brilliant and effective a strategy that even a significant number of the DailyPaul contingent are totally flummoxed ... which actually makes the case for Rand even stronger, since if a significant percent of the dailypaul posters are so confused then you can bet a significant percent of the party leadership, the Fascists, and most of the Enemies Domestic, are confused too! Confused enough to not unify to oppose him?
Let us pray!
Because if Rand can get the opening his father was denied, Rand could actually win! And if Rand were to actually win, the country would have its first president who actually supports the Constitution and Bill of Rights in maybe a century!
Bill of Rights /Amendment X: "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."
Do you need a politician or judge to "interpret" those 28
