And there it is. There is the problem. The old GOP that wants to legislate morality, spy on you, and go to another war will have to be overcome.

Yea, I don't get it.

He says that and then later says he is fed up with the religious right.

How will Rand not help this?

The republican party was originally a party of staunch rural northern evangelicals who detested slavery. I will agree that some silly comments give it a bad name, but I don't understand the source of the notion that "religion and values bad bad bad".

If anything, the leaders of the R party have become more and more liberal since the 90s.

I don't know. Suggesting that Paul would not greatly advance small government ideology is stupid.

This is true. He is not Ron. Don't know if that is necessarily a bad thing. To some it will be of course.

Nothing like a good stereotype to describe a whole group of people, eh?

in some of his opinions yes and in others no. Overall i'd vote for Rand, I think he actually wants to do what is right.

He has no draw for independents and he isn't charismatic (or extreme) enough to mobilize the base.

If you think Rand Paul is part of the problem you're just a fricking idiot.

Since his filibuster, I've talked to loads of baby boomers (my parents included who couldn't stand Ron Paul) who are excited about Rand. He's got the charisma. Not BHO charisma, but it's enough.

(or extreme) enough


How has that worked out for the Republican party over the past 5 years?

Substitute the word "Establishment" for Conservative and you'll find the truth. Conservatives will be ALL IN with anybody who can articulate the message and isn't afraid to take the fight to The Dems. And right now, that's Rand Paul.

Wow...someone from the Wash Post claims to be a conservative. I'm shocked. Shocked, I say.

Show me a mainstream candidate who doesn't support the drug war?

Paul is for reducing the penalty for drug possession/selling. It's a start. They guy isn't a libertarian by any stretch but he may be the closest you have in the Republican party with a chance.

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