@trumpsahead - Don't jump to conclusions. His statements in aggregate are overwhelmingly in opposition of Obama and are overwhelmingly pro-Liberty.
The audience he is speaking to is not us. He's not preaching to the choir. He's speaking to the average Joe who only watches MSM and might be a little brainwashed. You have to wake some people up slowly, in baby steps.
When he says, "... a Syrian leader who gasses his own people...", you should interpret it as "... suppose what the MSM is saying is true ...", is this war even then justifiable? The answer is no.
Abandoning Rand Paul on principle for trying to sell Liberty to non-Liberty people is ludicrous.
