Skip to comments.Rand Paul: GOP must ‘evolve and adapt’

Sen. Rand Paul said on Sunday that he will make a decision on a 2016 presidential run within two years and plans to be a force in the refashioning the Republican party regardless of whether he seeks the Oval Office.
We will continue to pursue and, you know, try to make that decision over the next two years or so, the Kentucky Republican told WABC Radios Aaron Klein when asked about a potential White House bid.
In the meantime, Paul said, he will try to be part of the national debate and added that he hopes to play a major role in directing the future of the Republican Party.
Paul added that there are major areas of concern for the party, noting we are not popular and we have not been competitive out in California, on the West Coast, or in New England.
And his particular brand of conservatism could play well in those regions and with other voters who may not currently identify with the Republican Party, Paul said.
So we think a little more of a libertarian Republican, someone who is a strict Constitutionalist, but also believes in a strong, defensive military but not necessarily in an overly aggressive or bellicose lets get involved in everybodys civil war military, I think that has more appeal to independents and some people who have given up in the Republican Party, Paul said.

N00bs posting polital sources haz a distinct odor.
Adaptation is HARD.
Does the GOP really hafta?
Dying, on the other hand, is easy.
All that is necessary, is to cast overboard every principle, every moral directive, and every obligation you now have, and without the burden, plunging into the depths follows almost naturally.
Go toward the light....
Which turns out to be the yawning gates of Hades.
Try again, Ron
Yikes, I give up.
Stand against the enemy or die.
Stand for freedom and the constitution or die.
Distinguish yourself clearly or die.
Lose the RINOs or die.
Win or die.
LOL...Lord have mercy!
Rand has already hinted at amnesty. No thanks. I’d rather have the slow death than the total invasion.
He would represent a real change. The establishment would hate him but so would the Santorum types who want to regulate vice and what goes on in people’s bedrooms. I think the libertarian leaners are an untapped voter resource.
Exploit the natural anti-Gov’t stance of the Anarchist.
Play to the self centered core of the Libertarian.
The anarchist will become the extreme right with a certain appeal to the more moderate Libertarian.
Anarchy with guardrails.
The guardrails are the moral fiber, our Constitution and the inherent virtue of man.
This pulls the progressive concepts full circle, as to turn its logic, based on uncertainty, into focus to be defined.
Rand posted this on his facebook where I got it.
He said this with it:
“Some believe the GOP must become more liberal or moderate. I disagree. Returning to the Constitution and the Founding Fathers’ vision of liberty, in both our domestic and foreign policy, can bring more people into the party.”
IOW: Game over, man! Game OVER!
"Hudson, just deal with it, because we need you and I'm sick of your bullsh*t."
I swear, there are a lot of Hudsons on the right. Get a grip. For starters, keep a clear head, look around you, and begin perceiving that there's good cause to have more faith in your fellow Americans. If you think Americans are stupid pushovers and children, move to France. If you think Americans are, on the whole, good, moral, productive people who like to be self-directed and would if they could, then you're on the RIGHT side.
