Rand Paul: Endorsing Romney was ‘compromising on strategy, not on principle’
The Daily Caller ^ | 06/13/2012 | Stephanie Wang

Posted on 06/13/2012 3:10:53 PM PDT by markomalley

Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul wants people to know that his endorsement of Mitt Romney for the GOP presidential nomination does not signify an abandonment of his libertarian political beliefs.

When Paul endorsed Romney on Fox News last week, many supporters of Texas Rep. Ron Paul’s presidential bid took great offense. But Rand Paul said in an interview with Daily Paul Radio that he was “compromising on strategy, not on principle.”

“People need to look beyond politics to look at what’s most important,” said Paul. “I sort of take it as an insult that people think that somehow I don’t support my father or haven’t done an adequate job in the sense that I have traveled thousands of miles and been to thousands of speeches both with him and by myself. And so I think there’s probably nobody in the liberty movement that has done more to support my dad than myself.”

Rand Paul cited a few reasons for his endorsement, including Romney’s promise to give all 50 states waivers from President Barack Obama’s health care reform law, and his support for auditing the Federal Reserve.

Rand, looking beyond politics is exactly why I could NEVER support somebody like Romney, because not looking beyond politics is what has led us to this string of RINO nominees that are just as hell-bent on taking us down the to socialism as the libs.

I call bull sh!t on your statement.

Cowards compromise their values, beliefs and principles. Romney is a self-avowed Progressive, a socialist. How is voting for him better than voting for a self-avowed communist like BHO2?

We find ourselves between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. The question is: how far are we willing to prostitute our votes?

By my observation, Rand Paul is honest, intelligent, principled, hard-working, Christian and conservative.

What else I have observed is that every new conservative officeholder that comes along is picked apart and trashed here on FR.

Then when it is time for candidates to declare for President and too few conservatives step forward, the same complainers then bellow about how the fix is in and the "GOP-E" has foisted another RINO on us.

Sen. Paul wants to actually accomplish good things for America now.

That is why he is supporting Gov. Romney for President.

So, Sen. Rand Paul now supports abortion, a pro-radical gay agenda, and anti-2nd Amendment gun-grabbing? Does that sound like good things to you?

There is no compromise with evil.

“compromising on strategy, not on principle.”

If Rand is a libertarian, then he's not my candidate. They are pro-choice...as is Romney.

And that's why his support of Romney is a no brainer on his part. Anyone who'll throw someone else's right to life under the bus will compromise anything at all.

In fact, they really have no principles to speak of.

Voting for the lesser of two evils just because they have an (R) next to their name is exactly what has gotten us to the point of voting between a pro gun-grabbing, pro-abortion, pro-homosexual Marxist from Chicago and a pro gun-grabbing, pro-abortion, pro-homosexual Marxist wannabe from Massachusetts. Romney wants us to judge him on his record, and his record is that of supporting things I will not compromise on, such as the right to own firearms, the right to life, and the sanctity of marriage.

If you vote for a liberal just because he's the lesser of two evils, you are still voting for a liberal, and you're still voting for evil.

I don't give a damn about what letter is next to their name. I'm done bending over and spreading for the GOP every time they try to shove a liberal down my throat.

Where on earth do you get the notion that most libertarians are "pro-choice?" The Founding Fathers considered themselves libertarians. Can you name a single one, who advocated legalized abortion? As for the Pauls, they certainly are not pro abortion. Dr. Ron Paul actually delivers babies!

And as to Gov. Romney, he has now stated that he is against abortion. Why do you assume that he is not telling the truth?

I would suggest that anyone who really wants to turn America around, desist from insulting those with whom one may have a few disagreements, and focus their fire on the Leftist ideas, with which virtually everyone at Free Republic has a very, very serious disagreement. We are in a true crisis, now. We need to find common ground for a counter-attack.

You insult one of the most respected men in Congress, without offering any reason but your own apparent need to insult someone.

Ron Paul is one of the best grounded men in Congress on Conservative economic principles; on the Constitutional limitations on Government; on the Washington/Jefferson foreign policy, which once made us the most respected people on earth. Just what, in comparison, do you have to offer?

The libertarian platform is pro-choice. It’s a matter of record.

Gary Johnson has agreed to that, but calls his position “limited pro-choice”.

1.4 Abortion

Recognizing that abortion is a sensitive issue and that people can hold good-faith views on all sides, we believe that government should be kept out of the matter, leaving the question to each person for their conscientious consideration.

Who is talking about the fragment party, that calls itself "Libertarian?" When Ron Paul ran on that ticket, many elections back, it was nothing like the present.

By contrast, Dr. Paul has been running as a Conservative Republican, in Texas, for years. The present small party that is closest to his thinking is the "Constitution Party," whose 2008 candidate, Pastor Baldwin, is certainly not "pro-choice."

Incidentally, if I was not trying to be a peacemaker, here, I would point out that referring to killing babies as "pro-choice," suggests a perceptual deficit. (See this piece on Al Gore: A Woman's Right To Choose.)

Citing a party's name as defining what people actually believe is not very reliable. Would you suggest that either George W. Bush or Senator McCain defined what is intended by all advocates of a "Republican form of government?"

I’m saying that if someone is going to call himself or herself a “republican”, then they better get used to that being associated with the republican party.

Call yourself libertarian, and I’m going to go with my experience of many years with libertarians all over, none of whom were pro-life, all of whom were pro-choice.

If they don’t like the associations made with the word libertarian, then they shouldn’t use it.

As a constitutionalist myself, I support the constitution party candidate.

Insult after insult, but not even a suggestion of truth.

Just who are you suggesting is a Muslim apologist?

Perhaps, here, is something you can get your teeth into, since much of it deals with an hysterical approach to foreign policy--the one which is usually offered by those who insult Dr. Paul, but cannot actually answer his arguments:

Pseudo Pragmatism--Political Folly.

Neither Ron Paul or Rand Paul is a Libertarian. Ron Paul left the LP BECAUSE of their pro abortion position as well as other disagreements on social issues. Ron Paul is a Constitutionalist, the Constitutionalists and the anything goes crowd battled for control of the LP. The Constitutionalists lost so Ron Paul left the LP and rejoined the GOP.

Ok, but the mistake you are making is confusing libertarian political beliefs with positions taken by the libertarian Party. I myself share many of libertarian political beliefs that both Pauls have. I consider myself a Classical Liberal as did our founders consider themselves as Classical Liberals. I am very conservative (paleocon). Hope you can see the difference between libertarian principles and the LP platform.

And, I disagree in general, too. Most libertarians I’ve run across in everyday life or in the media are pro-choice.

Sen. Rand Paul is a good man. He is a tea party stalwart and a fiscal conservative, he is pro-life, he opposes gay marriage, and he behaves honorably in his public and private life so far as any of us knows. He is smart and well-educated, articulate and attractive. He is an up-and-coming conservative talent in the GOP. We are lucky to have him in the Senate.

Like almost every other prominent figure in the GOP Sen. Paul has chosen to publicly support the GOP nominee for President. In response to this you hurl baseless accusations against his character. This is disgraceful.

It is also destructive to the GOP and to the conservative movement and America. Every time a young conservative rises he is met with deranged slander from self-styled "purists" who claim that anyone who fails their unknowable, ever-changing litmus test is the devil incarnate. Then when no viable conservatives are available to run the "purists" shriek that the "GOP-E" has rigged the primaries.

I am sick of seeing unreasonable, dishonest fools such as yourself slander good people over nothing. This is not me trashing good conservatives, this is me defending them.

You think that the answer to someone calling you out, for spewing insults that you cannot possibly back up, cares what you call him? If you choose to not accord people entitled to titles of respect, the titles of respect that they have earned; it is not the targets of your insult who are disparaged. You have been degrading yourself, over and over on this thread.

What is really pathetic, is that in your hissy fit, you have not even indicated what, if anything you believe in--or do you believe in anything?

Since the actual subject here is the strategy involved in conservatives endorsing Gov. Romney, here is a link to my own, virtual endorsement of Gov. Romney: Romney & American Conservatism. I would guess, from your "articulate" form of expression, that you must be an Obama man.

Dude!

You are beclowning yourself to an epic degree here.

Read the following and learn:

"If you analyze it I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism. I think conservatism is really a misnomer just as liberalism is a misnomer for the liberals–if we were back in the days of the Revolution, so-called conservatives today would be the Liberals and the liberals would be the Tories. The basis of conservatism is a desire for less government interference or less centralized authority or more individual freedom and this is a pretty general description also of what libertarianism is."

Guess who wrote that? Reason magazine, 1975?

Of course: Ronald Wilson Reagan. Ronaldus Magnus.

You need to go back to school, and pay more attention this time.

I don't respect Ron "frootloop" Paul and don't give a crap what his job title is.

Is that what it was? I thought I was expressing my opinion of Ron "nutcase" Paul.

I would guess, from your "articulate" form of expression, that you must be an Obama man.

I would guess, based on your adulation of Ron "looney" Paul, that you must be a 9-11 troofer and a Muslim apologist.

I stated that he's got a crazy father who has had a lot of influence on him.

While Obama was listening to revrun' Wright, Rand was listening to crazy old Ron Paul.

Just because Jr. endorses Romney, it doesn't suddenly make him a paragon.
