Posted on 04/26/2014 5:50:40 PM PDT by Bigtigermike
Paul, according to CNN, also talked about making the Republican party bigger and much more inclusive, saying that unless Republicans broaden their message to reach more people, winning future elections is going to be a bit of a problem.
You go to a Republican event and its all white peoplenot because were excluding anybody, but because we just havent done a good enough job encouraging people to come into our party.

Uh, Rand, nothing to stop them from joining us.
nothing worse than a repubican fixated on the outside of aperson, like a bitchy superficial liberal whiner.
We don’t hand out welfare to animal filth. So what do you expect?
And there’s something wrong with this?
So he’s a plant? Because that’s the kind of $#*+ we’ve been hearing from the media, left-wing blogs, pundits, DNC and Soros people since at least 2007.
So, it’s not the message. It’s that the message isn’t getting out to blacks. This man is an idiot.
What we are learning about Paul, is that a lot of this talk is about changing the GOP platform to a much more liberal platform on social issues, abortion, gay marriage, etc.
Much of his language of “youth”, “evolve”, “grow the party”, is cover for his wanting to move the party left.
Idiots like Rand Paul are why we are going to lose in November when we should have a rip roaring win.
Can’t this guy just STFU and sit down? For one day?
Bundy is starting to look like a genius compared to RP.
Hey Rand, how about concentrating on the opposition party and actually offering conservative solutions to their various depravities.
Don't Pander and Say "We Gotta Get The Black Vote, The Mexican Vote, The Jewish Vote , The Mongol Vote etc etc"
Just stand for what you know is right and people will figure it out for themselves.
Sort of why we are winning with the Global Warming Issue. They Built that out of a false foundation and in fell in on Gore and his ilk.
But Wait! You can't Beat The Party of Santa Claus!
Yes, But Remember, Santa Claus isn't real....... Everyone finds that out eventually.
Rand Paul, the zero thinking candidate...
Looking more and more like he didn’t fall from the crazy @$$ tree...
Rand Paul is obviously lobbying to become the GOPe “moderate” candidate in the 2016 primary season. He’s sounding all the right RINO chords.
We will lose in nov because the us voter is subhuman filth. They chose the Kenyan TWICE’’!!!!!’’!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!????!??!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
National Black Republican Association
About The NBRA

OBJECTIVES: The objectives of the NBRA are to conduct a nationwide grassroots educational campaign in black communities; champion school choice opportunity scholarships to give black parents educational options and access to a quality education for their children; and provide training and resources for grassroots activists and candidates for elected office.
This is the third or fourth issue of his attacks this week
since joining Team Romney.
Another Paul trying to again make the GOP the party of Sheehan.
We tried telling people. They knew better. and now we have lost months wasting time with this moron...just the way they planned it.
There are plenty of us trying to demonstrate why minorities are better served by Republican ideas, but they ain’t listening. I hope Rand wasn’t suggesting we go more Dem-lite to attrack non-whites.
Of course he is.
RINO like his father. Nothing wrong with that. Who shows up at Libertarian Party events?
Black Republicans have their own website...great read.
Yeah, there is.
How did Reagan win two massive landslides? He sure as hell didn't play identity politics. Lots of blacks and Hispanics crossed over and voted for him.
You win by standing your ground and making your case built on your principles and telling the other side to go to Hell.
Of course they don’t listen...animals can get welfare or they can get more by working. We choose work, animals choose welfare
people who want to legalize their drug(s) of choice, and folks who want to marry animals and inanimate objects.
This idiot has gone off the rails this week....I’ve never had any use for him, but man, like another poster said: just shut up.
Yes. Everything. Start to finish. Nothing in the current platform needs to be adapted to cater to anyone. They can take it and benefit or leave it and do what they do now.
The message does not get through to the black community.
Honestly, they are under the spell of their “leaders”, and have to be very brave to “come out” as conservatives.
Just have a look at Huckabee’s audience. Rare is a person of colour. I really wish that people of any colour would do a little research and find out which ideology would cause them to thrive and prosper.
Then quit the party.
You can lead a horse to water....
Don’t know about Republican events but the last Tea Party rally I went to had several blacks and Latinos.
You don’t have to cater. Just explain the facts of life to them.
Free markets cause US to thrive and prosper... Others cannot ever get ahead without handouts... Look at the entire continent of africa
Blacks are gravitating to the conservative side but sure as hell isn’t because of anything the GOPe is doing. If anything its individuals drawing minorities to the right.
Haven’t you noticed, Libertarians never attack the democrats for their failed policies.
Tell ya what Rand. When Alan Keyes is the keynote speaker at the 2016 GOP Convention get back with us Conservatives on just how the party should be all inclusive OK? How about it Rand? Is Alan Keyes too conservative and extreme on issues for you? He is too radical for most of the GOP-E which seems to be whom you are pandering too.
Maybe they dont care.
Half of hispanics dont vote.
So 1/3 of Hispanics dont care, 1/3 are Democrat and 1/6 are Republican.
So 1/2 dont care, 1/3 are Democrat and 1/6 are Republican.
The only thing libertarians actually agree with conservatives on is limited fiscal spending.
Which is standard campaign stuff. So why do anything different than we have been? They heard it for decades and choose to do something different. It ain’t a new idea. Republicans have invited them in for a looooong time now. Founded the party on it in fact.
They don’t want it.
Emphasize things in your platform a constituency might like, keep quiet about things they might not like.
It’s called successful politics.
It doesn't get any whiter and male than libertarianism, it is almost pure white.
Try 94% non-Hispanic white, and few females, and few of what we think of as religious, and many anti-religious.
Bite me Ru Paul. Loser.
No reason he can’t go to some Nation of Islam meetings.
Won’t see a single paleface there except for himself.
Maybe he’ll fee l better about that.
As long as he stays there, we will too.
Ok give up. Good strategy.
Hell, back in the 50’s when you attended any event it was all White People and a smattering of Blacks then, either North, South, West or East.
LBJ changed all that.
Hispanics who become Protestant Christians, also start voting more republican.
Hispanic Protestants voted 56% republican in 2004, and 48% republican in 2008.
Senator, why don’t you just admit you’re a big time Libertarian and you only joined the GOP, as your father did, to get a more visible platform. You’re not fooling anyone sir. The big tent approach you advocate is the typical message from our good friends the RINOS. A few days ago I could stomach voting for this guy for president but now I know what a huge mistake that would be. He’s showing his true Libertarian stripes.
What the hell are you on about? We have been doing exactly what you suggest for decades. Where have you been? And why bitch at me? We ARE DOING WHAT YOU WANT NOW AND HAVE BEEN.
