    The liberty movement needs him to win more than it needs him to run an honest campaign. If Rand is going to win, he needs the typical Republican vote and he needs the Independent/Libertarian vote in he's gonna beat the next Democrat. Think about it. Where did Ron Paul lose? His foreign policy. Rand knows this. Being buddy buddy with the neo-cons could be a genius strategy to secure the Presidency.

    You're being narrow-minded. How do you know what Rand will do if he becomes President? The Republican Party is full of neo-cons. What chance does Rand have if he isolates himself like his father and doesn't play any ball whatsoever? What you are seeing from Rand can easily be a campaign strategy, yet, you're quick to jump the gun and automatically write him off. Rand has said himself that he's attempting to infiltrate the party. Rand is the best chance the liberty movement has as of now.

    Rand is just playing ball in my opinion. He has no chance at becoming President unless he runs as a Republican. It just so happens that the Republican Party is full of neo-cons. If he isolates himself like his father did, he won't win. It's as simple as that. He has to attract typical Republican voters if he wants to become president. Honesty will only get him so far. Rand has even aid he's trying to infiltrate the party, so, give him a chance. Only his actions as President will truly matter.

    Respectfully Dr. Paul, Rand rode the Libertarian and Constitutional wave and then showed himself to be a Neo Con in sheeps clothing.
    Rand will never get my vote.

    Now we both know Obama had more self-interest in ensuring Ron Paul lost his republican nomination, than Mittens! I'm pretty sure Obama had a nice Super PAC dedicated in destroying Ron Paul!

    All of which is a homage act for his fathers record. He hasnt proven anything... Well except that he buddys up with neocons and wants to play the go-along-to-get-along game.... Rand talks the talk, but he doesnt walk the walk.

    There is very little progress in compromising with the establishment of either party. Look at the mess we are in today, your train of thought is what has got us where we are today.

    Just compromise a lil here, a lil there, and a lil everywhere... until your stance is no longer the same.

    He endorsed Mitt Romney at the HEIGHT of his Dads 2012 campaign! He KILLED it! He was campaigning with his father, then at the blink of an eye, after the bilderberg 2012, he endorsed Obamney, B4 his father even ended his campaign!

    It was almost like a coorindated task to get his father out of the race!

    Rand might as well buddy up to Wolfowitz and the likes of the neocon establishment!

    He may have done so... But that tiny bit of good, is completely erased when he cowtails to the neocons. What good is it to raise a national debate on the NDAA, to only join the ones who proposed and support it? It seems like Rand is just riding off of what his dad stands for and also his fathers 30+ year track record of remaining consistent! When ya sellout out to attract more of the Gop base, he compromises his integrity, principles, and also dilutes his true position. A typical politician

    "my strategy" benefited me just fine. yes the person i voted for lost, as apparently so did the one you voted for.
    lets get back to your math, how does 1%(the Gary johnson vote) change the election? barry got 51%, mitts got 47%, if you give the 1% to mittens flip flop robomney, it is still 51% barry and 48% mittens...as for rules changes, watch the RNC, or just look through youtube. my choice lost,same as yours. i accept it and move on while you pissnmoan and blame others.noshit, its a Republic

    you should think about THIS. why is it that when this US House of Representatives (over 20 TERMS of office), honest, loyal, deep-thinking, intelligent and VERY reasonable (also, in his books/congressional webpage), ALWAYS-voting-by the constitution, TRUE-BLUE american man, and, let us not forget, PATRIOT, entered a
    room full of snakes... that EVER SO MANY people stood up, smiling, clapping him on, genuinely welcoming him? why? when our country falls into the sewer, you will think about this.

    So Rand filibustered the patriot act, and because of him their was a national debate about the NDAA and that's nothing? I see what he's trying to do and it's not easy, he's trying his best to please and stay true to those in the liberty movement and at the same time he's trying to be more appealing and gain a bigger amount of support from the GOP base than his father did. It's a very tight balancing act which he's clearly having a hard time with, but I respect him for trying it.

    The question wasn't about harm, despite your misinformed view. You did indeed see harm done. Barack Obama was re-elected, but I digress. Any chance you will answer the question posed?
    What rules are you talking about? Please quit speaking in riddles. The problem seems to be your misunderstanding that we DO live in a Republic, not a supposed or purported Republic but an actual Republic. That and the fact that actions have consequences is a concept that goes right over your head.

    Rand doesn't kow tow to the hemp vote. He only speaks truth to power. Somewhere along the line the Liberal faction of the Libertarian Party took the the reins. Anyone who doesn't bow down to the even fringe issues makes themselves the target of this once thoughtful band of merry pranksters.
    Sorry to intrude on your thread. I've been seeing this same responce over and over in a wide variety of forums. Now that their votes have aided the Fascist in Chief to re-election they turn their venom on

    This is politics, you are talking philosophy. I am an ardent liberty supporter across the board, but I also understand politics.
    Writing off Rand is a huge mistake. We need to have national politicians that stand with us on the liberty issues, & Rand is the only Senator that's going to do that.
    Ron Paul is 77 and retiring from Congress. He will do his part with his tours & C4L, but he can no longer lead this movement. I'm not saying Rand is going to, but we can't reject him or we go no where.

    Sticking to principles is far better than compromising down to the establishment. Lowering our standards, even temporarily, for political gain will diminish what we stand for. We cant afford to take a step back ever again. Our time has come. Ron Paul is in the media. He is heading C4L. He will be speaking at college campuses, and I will ASSURE you that his words will be the same. Alterior motives, for however well intended, will certainly invite corruption, or at the very least split us up again

    Foreign Policy has always been one of the biggest differing points from his dad.

    Look, we can stay 100% hardcore in line with the liberty beliefs and continue to be marginalized and sidelined and barely part of the process. Or we can see that Rand is right on 90% of everything, and not too far off on the rest (except some FP stuff).

    Sure, you can call for no taxes... and then almost no ones listens to you. Or you can take steps to work towards that and actually make progress.

    As a supporter who wrote in Ron Paul, i will NOT vote for his son Rand Paul in 2016. He eff'd up the liberty movements momentum for a 2012 election. He hasnt proved sh*t to me, besides being a typical slimy leech of a politician which sold out to the establishment, and he rides off his dads style to appease a base. I believe he attended the bilderberg 2012 meeting.

    The elections are rigged and is just an illusion hiding the true Oligarchy,

    I'm not even American, but from the outside how could your country not elect Ron Paul. Everything he says is common sense.
