Welcome to the NSA Matrix
I totally support Rand Paul and Im as conservative as you can get. But I want this tyranny and blatant disregard for the 4th amendment stopped dead.
Rande Paul = Marty Comanche?
I’m sure GOP-e will block all talk about the NSA in 2014.
And the Dem’s in 2016 will blame the GOP.
Rand Paul is just another loser. If that is the best the GOP can do, time for another party. Time to get evil off the throne and good off the gallows and back on top.
Rush Limbaugh is all praise for Rand Paul on his Radio talk show, as I am typing this. Rush thinks Rand is shrewd to attract support from various diverse groups. Might not work in primaries, but will help in general to beat Hillary.
Paul says whatever works at whatever time
Totally unpredictable and unreliable often correct never consistent
He is winning all the polls. I can’t imagine another Bush or that “milk toast loser” Romney again and God forbid Fat Boy thug from liberal New Jersey. We want a conservative not a demorat in republicrat clothing. I stand with RAND.
Rush is not strong on conservative social values.
I am not pleased he thinks R.Paul is shrewd or that this is a good idea. Socially liberal Rs lose every time. Beating Hiterly?
I doubt if she’ll run. Ancient hideous hag with poor health and 27 walk-in closets stuffed with rattling skeletons.
What’s needed is an R candidate with FIRE! Courage, constitutional principles, and a fighting spirit. No compromising.
No other (potential) candidate is better at capturing the zeitgeist of America in 2014. Whether he can still do it in 2016 remains to be seen
Watch the conservatives duke it out to the bitter end just like the 2012 primaries and clear the path for a moderate. I am afraid another Bush will be the nominee.
It is still a free country.
I thought the last count was 52 skeletons.
I am going to watch it and then decide if I disagreed with any of it...
People here forget that Jesus also preached to people who disagreed with him and pagans.
It is about enguaging people, not writing them off.
Think about it, if he starts the process of changing ONE mind poisoned by liberalism/communism to second guess it and it leads them to be a liberaltarian, then that leads them to become a conservative? How is that bad thing?
We need to USE libetarians as a “gateway de-tox drug” the same way methadone is used get perople off of opium.
If Socialism is Political opium, can we use Libertainism as Methadone?
What social issues is he too liberal on? What a difference four years makes. He was the face of the tea party when he was elected for crying out loud.
It really isn’t a free country. We are brainwashed into believing it is but you have to pay government to live on your own property and you can’t say what want or think what you want talk on the phone without being monitored. You have to buy a car with a bunch of crap on it you don’t want made by socialist and you pay for their health care and fat retirement pensions in the price of a car you must have to survive.No — not free at all.
If Rande got elected America would certainly have the hottest first lady pretty much ever.
“Face of the Tea Party”? I don’t join fan clubs.
There have been several articles wherein he states that the Rs should “soften” on social issues, be big tent, etcetc blah blah crap.
Pandering to perverts does not win elections for Rs.
Why should I care about that man with the sculpted hair talking? Give me a synopsis, I hate listening to propagandists flapping their lips. Maybe he’s not one, but he looks like one.
We need to USE libetarians as a gateway de-tox drug the same way methadone is used get perople off of opium.
Hardcore libertarians HATE social conservatives and social conservative principles. I know this from years of “debating” with them. They help lose elections, too. And methadone doesn’t make drug addicts quit, it’s useless in that regard.
You should listen more and look less then...
And of course he’ll lose. But even if a Bush wins, no biggie, might as well have a Dem.
Give me a hint. I loathe watching videos. Have no TV, never watch movies, I like to read the printed word.
Give me a tiny clue.
That was 27 CLOSETS full of ratttling skeletons...
But unless there are some R candidates - or at least one - with fighting spirit and courage, intelligence, loyalty to the Constitution, and moral principles (NOT able to be bought, bribed, or threatened), our country is toast.
Personally I benefited from Bush-43’s tax cuts.
And he did not screw Socons either.
He sure screwed Fiscons with his deficit spending.
Of course Democrats Obama, Reid and Pelosi make Bush-43’s spending look like a piker.
Did she Groupie him after he became Senator to be a Senator's wife?
Sorry I forgot.
It’s not good my FRiend, basically the voters are idiots, we lost the culture and Rand Paul is a democrap.
Thank you - I’m just getting more and more eccentric...
Many of the voters are idiots, the culture is in toilet, and Paul is, imho, a “regular” politician...
But normally (just not today) I am rather optimistic. Oddly enough. I think a lot of people are so royally p’ed off that change may be in the air.
Bush 23 had some redeeming points. I don’t hate him.
But Jeb Bush is nothing but an emetic.
She would certainly be the hottest first lady since Jackie Kennedy and perhaps since Dolly Madison.
I’d like to snort a couple rails of Colombian with her then get really crazy.
And I’d mail her panties to sickoflibs.
You mean freepmail them to me?
No. Ziplock them and mail them. You can smell the victory.
When peoplefinder lists my address with my name as SOL I will expect a package.
Well if you don’t want them.........
I’d take Rosalynn Carter over the overrated Jackie. A least based on her official cheesecake shot. http://www.nndb.com/people/218/000023149/rosalynn-carter.jpg
Dolley Madison? Nice cleavage in those oil paintings.
Rand paul is the only politician I have heard decry the christian persecution in the middle east including how obama is chumming with those who will persecute christians
“Id take Rosalynn Carter over the overrated Jackie. A least based on her official cheesecake shot.”
I can go with that.
His voting record scores 100% from the ACU.
I’d say that’s pretty damn reliable...
2) Pro-gay marriage
3) Now an interventionist, too.
Freshly laundered, one would hope...
People think Ron Paul is pro-gay marriage because he wants the issue out of the feds’ hands and back to the states where it belongs. He’s not pro-gay marriage - if he were he would want to keep it right where it is - in the hands of meddling feds who want to force gay marriage, like abortion, on all the states. He’s pro-Constitution, pro-states-right, pro-freedom, and anti-big government. Our greatest threat to traditional American values is the behemoth $4 Trillion government monster. Paul’s about fractionalizing that monster. He’s got his eye on the ball. Unfortunately, many don’t.
Not if he’s picking fight with and disparaging Ted Cruz in a nasty way, dragging him through the dirt. Ted Cruz probably rates the same, then it becomes a matter of who’s voting to keep his rate up.
Didnt Paul vote to not defund obamacare, didnt he talk down Cruz effort?
Rand Paul might have a propped up record but he speaks put against conservatives and their causes.
