The GOP shouldn't be scared, they should embrace the direction the libertarian elements want to take the party.

Hopefully the Rand Paul's and Cruz's of the GOP are our future.

Ole Joe makes a few salient points, and that should tell you all you need to know about the Washington establishment of the current GOP. It is FAR from conservative/libertarian.

If all it takes it a couple of freshman Senators to "scare" you into changing direction,

what kind of leader were you anyway?

His comment about them just being freshman senators really does say a lot about the nature of the environment in Washington.

Sounds like someone saying they haven't earned their place yet

From the little I know, these two young Senators seem to have promising futures. If both the Dems & Reps are scared of them, this seems to be a good thing in Washington these days. All that tells me is both Rand Paul & Ted Cruz are worth taking a serious look at.

I looks like Joe definitely views it as a caste hierarchy within of a caste system.

He is dripping with an air of superiority.

those two aren't libertarians. They're true republicans. They want social engineering through congress but less market regulation. Rand isn't Ron. Cruz is a tea Partier.

On that note, Obama certainly isn't a Democrat.

More of an International Socialist-USA Last type of guy.

Whatever. Call them what you want. The bottom line is they are less statist than the current crop of GOPers currently in congress.

Here's a couple general examples right of the bat about government social engineering but I don't know how Cruz or Rand P. feel about them. So I too would like to know if you have any specific to them.

>government wants us to "go green",
therefore tax subsidies for green start ups like solyndra and tax rebates for buyers of solar & wind devices and cars like the Chevy volt.

>government wants to encourage home ownership, therefore, home mortgage deduction

I don't know about Cruz, but I'm pretty sure Rand is not for this.

I pretty sure both Rand and Cruz would like to see these deductions go away with the 16th.

I think the home mortgage and "go green" would both fall to a FairTax type system that would exist without the 16th.
