Dr. Rand Paul, who is seeking the Republican nomination for the US Senate seat in Kentucky, is causing panic among members of the Republican establishment in Washington DC. The greatest fear that the Republican establishment has, is that an honest conservative may get elected, who actually means it when he talks of small government. The present day conservative politicians are good at rhetoric, but once they get elected, they sell out to the big corporations, banks, and special interest groups, whom they give our tax dollars.
I have not seen this level of fear in the Republican establishment, since Ronald Reagan challenged Gerald Ford for the Republican Presidential nomination in 1976. The Reagan who ran for President in 1976, was more of a hardline small-government conservative, than the Reagan who ran for President in 1980.
What is causing the beltway establishment to panic, is that Rand Paul is close to mainstream Republicans on national security issues, which makes him a more credible national figure than his father, Ron Paul. While Rand Paul supports the war in Afghanistan, he does not believe in nation-building.
What is terrifying the GOP establishment, is that he plans to get rid of the IRS, the Federal Reserve, the Department of Education, and many other federal departments. He is likely to advocate pulling the US out of the UN. He plans to cut the federal budget to the bone, and abandon the policies of bailing out the big banks, and failing corporations such as AIG.
Not in 1 million years.

They sold out looooong before they were elected. The campaign consultants spend a bit of time teaching them what to say and how to say it. The candidates learn that what they learned is effective and then go find money to pay for for more campaign consultant work, and on, and on and on.
Yeah, I don't either. Paul, like his father, would say that it's none of our business. So NO, Rand Paul is NOT the next Ronald Reagan.
Meaning he won’t sell out to the free traitors.
Rand Paul is MORE conservative than Ronaldus Maximus..
No. He might be the next Ron Paul though
BTW - The next real conservative elected president, say a Chris Christie, will have a far more profound effect than Ronald Reagan. Is is Rand Paul? Who knows?
Pres. Ronald Reagan was not an anti-Semite and would not associate with nuts such as truthers; etc.
In fairness, Ronald Reagan wasn’t the next Ronald Reagan at this point in his career.
Why not give him the benefit of the doubt?
He’s a step in the right direction from where we are now, and by that I mean, Obama, McCain, Romney, Lindsey Graham, and the rest of the “wilting violet” company.
>>>>Do you think Rand Paul would have the courage or the political philosophy to compel him to tell Mr. Gorbachev to “Tear down this wall”?
What I do know, is that Rand Paul will prevent America from ending up a bankrupt country like Greece. When America becomes a broke and bankrupt nation, they will lack the financial ability to threaten anyone, and the Iranians will laugh at any American threats.
I can see the Liberal Globalists in the GOP squealing big time....their Soros-funded liberal globalist new world order would take a severe hit
There are some things I do not agree with the Paul’s on....but their support to pull America out of the UN, WTO, and other Globalist entities would be so beneficial for the country. And, of course, the biggest critics of the Paul’s are supporters of the UN, WTO, NAFTA, etc....which are also supported by people like Gore, Clinton, Boxer, George Soros....
