No candidate can win by proclaiming they will end the drug war. It's political suicide.


And that's why conservatives consistently lose. They don't carry the truth of their convictions with them.

There is no backbone for this new brand of republican; no character, no vision. If you say you are conservative and for a smaller government then at least do it. I mean, Ron Paul is an old loon but he is consistent.

Rand Paul is just another flyboy waiting to get his hands on power, dole out favors and increase government where it pleases him.

He wants to say he's against the drug war, then prove it. Put the bills forward. He says he's against expanding govt debt - tell him to jumpstart the audit of the DoD.

He says he's against drones. Explain his alternative for domestic terrorism. He's a hack.

WTF? How long have you followed politics? Campaigning is about telling the public what they want to hear, and playing a sax on late night TV. Not "Carrying the truth" of your convictions.

Get elected, do what the frick you want. It's the American way. Unfortunately you can't get elected being honest with the public.

re: Conservative Campaign to Purge Rand Paul


then don't pretend you are the party of god when you can't stand up to the scrutiny.

if conservatives would dump the religion angle, they'd probably get a lot more voters who identify with them.

He's either a flaming liberal who is posing as a conservative or a 1 issue libertarian (drugs). Guaranteed.

Overhyped.

Conservatives aren't a party.

I'm guessing you are about as "conservative" as ASURob.

Because I sincerely love politics as sport, I'd normally love to dig into this kind of thing. But having not read your link (or any of its kind recently), I'll leave you with this;

Rand Paul will never be the Republican nominee for President of the United States.

Never.


Unfortunately you are probably right

I wouldn't classify anyone in that opposition of Rand as conservative.

He keeps using that word. I do not think it means what he thinks it means...


The Republican Party is not run by conservatives. It is being run (lately at least) by authoritarians who wish to push their social beliefs on others by gov't. Nothing about that is conservative.

You damn sure hide it well.

Religious conservatives are religious. Being conservative doesn't make you religious. It makes you frugal, but that seems to be lost on a lot of people, including those who call themselves conservative these days.
