Hollywood and Washington DC

Too much nepotism in both places.

The guy being backed by the GOP (Mictch McConnell) Grayson is a RHINO. Used to be a Dem and had to switch a few years ago. Everything that happens in the Kentucky GOP is decided by McConnell.
I hear Paul is the Conservative.

It certainly fits the pattern, a conservative running on his own against a RINO supported by the GOP.

This is getting old. We’ve got to figure out a way to put an end to that pattern.

The problem conservatives and the Tea Party has is the RHINO GOP control the precincts. We spent a night going through the way things work at that level at a recent Tea Party meeting.

Yeah, it’s a tough nut to crack. What’s distressing is the motivation of the career GOPers. They obviously don’t give a good g* d* about the issues, just their own stinking hides.

They know they are going to have to move right to get elected. All politicians are one thing and that's survivalists, you don't get elected by not being able to read the polls.
We just need to knock off a McCain or a McConnell or any of the big establishment RHINOs. Now is the time because right now they have little or no national power.

I am unaware of some famous atheist named Randall.

“Is he an anti war loon like his father?”

Yea, fruitcake, like his dad. He thinks that national defense should be the #2 priority of government, rather than #1.

Go figure...

We don’t know how he’ll vote, that’s the problem. He has no record, and he is using his father’s PaleoLib nutroots fundraising network to buy the Senate nomination. Secretary of State Trey Grayson is Jim Bunning’s protege, and he’s the man who can win in November.

Then he took “Rand,” the famous atheist , as a nickname, rather than the usual “Randy?”

I don’t know his intentions, but Rand is sure a far cooler nickname than Randy.

The problem is they usually move right just before the election — as McCain is doing now — and then swing back farther left then ever afterwards.

Semper Fi, Recon Dad, from 2MAW Force Recon “Doc”.

Bill Johnson’s web site speaks well for him. I won’t add to it other than to say I support him 100% and know him well.

Looking at the date you joined FR, welcome aboard. You're going to find a lot of very friendly conservative on line all the time.

My son was Recon and 2nd Force Recon and is now Marsoc. I've met a couple of his buddies that are corpsman and you can't find a better group anywhere.
One of his best friends was Corpsman Luke Milam, who died on their last stint in Southern Afghanistan.

Navy Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class Charles Luke Milam

26, of Littleton, Colo.; assigned to 2nd Marine Special Operations Battalion, Camp Lejeune, N.C.; died Sept. 25 in Helmand province, Afghanistan, while conducting combat operations.

Where are you in Kentucky?
