He should run on the democrat ticket. After all, he is moving in that direction.

BS. He’s very conservative. Some don’t really understand conservatism.

And I believe he has the best chance to win.

No he is not moving in the Dem direction, not at all. He is advocating freedom which neither the dems or the pubbies have high on their agenda.

Seriously, I don't think he is. He is Libertarian to a fault. He is an Isolationist. He is a lessez faire capitalist. Those positions are a far cry from the Neo-Socialism espoused by the Democrats.

I think he would necessarily be different on Religion, Abortion, and Marriage because Libertarians just don't seem to care. Also, he is a strict constitutionalist. -At least as far as I can tell.

Moving in that direction? Really? No, that would be the GOP you’re thinking of.

Yep! While I don't agree with everything Rand Paul has to say, I find it refreshing that young people are applauding him and not, say, Chelsea Clinton. There might be some hope for the country yet.

Conservative is getting Chinless reelected to keep the Senate liberal in case the Republicans ever win it. Got it.

He’s none of that, he’s a “Player.” He does what he has to to forward his career. He doesn’t really have principles to anchor him. 35 years from now he’s McCain.

Amnesty, boosting McConnell in a key primary election, telling social conservatives to shut up and sit down. Yes, he is very conservative.

1. He’s for amnesty.
2. He’s for going softer on “social issues” (while we have a >40% illegitimacy rate, homosexual marriage and mass child killing).
3. He’s now sounding like a foreign interventionist (no thanks!)

He’s crossed himself off my list.

He is going to win all the independents, moderates, and some democrats and cruise to a landslide victory, just like we did in 2012.

Well, you're more right then you realize.

Rand Paul doesn't really understand conservatism either, what with his:

1. Amnesty Plan
2. Social issues have to take a back seat policy position.

I am 100% pro-life. I believe life begins at conception and that abortion takes the life of an innocent human being. It is the duty of our government to protect this life as a right guaranteed under the Constitution. For this reason, I introduced S. 583, the Life at Conception Act on March 14, 2013. This bill would extend the Constitutional protection of life to the unborn from the time of conception.

but then he says

Republicans should “agree to disagree” about social issues, including abortion.

Color me confused.

>>Silly me, I didn’t know amnesty for illegals was “conservative”. <<

Well, you’ll have to get over it because there’s not a single candidate currently in the running who hasn’t advocated some measure of legalization (not citizenship, but legal status) for at least some of those currently here illegally.

Maybe I’m wrong though. Which candidate argues that every single illegal should be rounded up and deported?

Democrats should run on the Communist ticket, Republicans should run on the Democrat ticket. Regardless of who is running for any office the Constitution is what I’m voting for.

Well, at least we know now why the GOP candidates have such a hard time reaching out to groups that vote mostly, and automatically, Dem. We ostracize anyone who tries I guess.

No, we insist on someone who shares our principles. Unless we don’t have any, in which case winning will do.

What he didn’t say but is around the corner is: The Government doesn’t treat christians fairly. because the day is now on us that the government is waging a war on Christians. And i think the libertarian philosophy of the government not dictating what people can and cannot do, is liberating to Christians as well pornographers and leftists. i’ll get flamed or what ever but my point is freedom works for everyone. Government cannot force anyone against their will to do any thing against their conscience. the same rules that allow a gay parade allow you to home school your kids. fly a flag let your kids wear a flag on their tee shirt. There are more of us than there are of them. freedom works for us.

Who is Cruz backing for the Texas senate,

Cruz is too vitriolic to win. The media may be the cause of a lot of it but it is that way.

Individual Liberty.

Actually, that is a good idea. We should call him the BS candidate.

Yes he does throw in a few comments here and there about individual liberty. Right after he makes some lefty comments. Just to look conservative.

LOL. I have heard that question throw around here. Cruz did not endorse or campaign for that RINO in the Primary. I hope that was clear enough to those asking that question. As a matter of fact, Cruz exposed him in his shenanigans.

Rand Paul has embraced the GOP-e shenanigans, and he has signed up to help them.

Domino’s changed the menu? Are the ingredients the same, or are there changes there, too? I’m curious, because they used to be pretty good.

Why is my question a strawman? I was serious. There is no GOP candidate who argues that every single illegal should be deported. Yet to do otherwise, even in a single case, will constitute the dreaded “amnesty” that many here will not countenance in a candidate for whom they will vote.

Okay, I guess they could round them up and jail them and that would satisfy the no-amnesty group, but again, is there a candidate who has expressed only those options? I think not, and if not, the only GOP vote anyone is going to be able to cast in 2016 is for a “pro-amnesty” candidate.

This isn’t my original thought, by the way. Someone else in here asked a few days ago who the no-amnesty candidate was.
