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.
