RAND PAUL would/will never make it past the primary.

He's got the state's rights/racists shored up.
He can probably get a lot of the social conservatives -- he supports a Constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, for example.
Fiscal conservatives - check.

National security / defense / hawks - not so much.

IMO that faction is still needed to win the primary. Don't think Paul can get them back at this point.

2013-04-05 02:11:24 PM
This many years later, and the idiots still haven't the slightest clue as to why candidate Obama appealed so strongly to such a broad constituency. What's so obvious to the rest of us is utterly invisible to them.

He's a genuinely decent man, stating simple truths that resonate well with regular people, articulated in a compelling manner.

Rand Paul is a two-bit imitation, saying all the wrong things for entirely self-serving reasons, and fooling only people who desperately want to be fooled... or who can't tell the difference. No one will remember his name a few years from now.

He won't make it past the primary for the same reason his dad couldn't - only 20-30% of the GOP likes him. Maybe RAND ticks that up a few points, because Fartbamadrones, but RAND has the same fundamental problem his dad does.

I don't agree with a lot of the guy's policies, but he strikes me as far more idealogically consistent than most Republicans.  And this quote from the article is an awareness of a social issue I wouldn't expect from a Republican:

"Look, the last two presidents could conceivably have been put in jail for their drug use. And I really think look what would have happened: It would have ruined their lives. They got lucky, but a lot of poor kids, particularly in the inner city, don't get lucky, they don't have good attorneys and they go to jail for these things and I think it's a big mistake."

He's like every adorable 'libertarian-theory-over-practice' guy I know wrapped into one.

I hope he comes back to the "segregation would have ended because of the free-market economics of it" idea.  It's brilliant precisely because it conflicts strongly with the "You know, Rand, segregation actually happened, lasted for a century, and never made 'economic sense' in the first place" line of reasoning.  But, between the two streams of thought, you *know* the libertarian-theorist is always going to take the theoretically pure path over the "this actually happened" path.  This behavior is so predictable that leading such guys off the rails is like shooting fish in a barrel.  Still kinda fun, though.

I imagine he has too many sound bites on record showing him as a nutter to win the presidency.  Too few people pay attention to congressional elections for those things to sink people (and gerrymandering factors in too of course).  For the presidency? Even Romney's relatively minor foot-in-mouth stuff sunk him.


whidbey: Why is someone out there assuming he's even worth a shiat at all politically?


Either the party itself is the crazy responsible for the 'republican hero of the month' club, or the lamestream msm conservamedia is sinking their own party of choice in an attempt to get more views.

I'm fine with either.  The party deserves to sink for its embracing of the crazy, regardless of where it stems from (where from it stems?).

whidbey: No, he's already played the "I'm not racist, I just believe the Civil Rights Act should be repealed because socialism. And if anyone bars people of color from their place of business I swear I will rage I will fight I will derp derp derp derp."


He didn't even go that far, he just said something like "anyone who bans black people from their business will obviously get the smack down from the free market's invisible pimp hand."

Lawnchair: He's like every adorable 'libertarian-theory-over-practice' guy I know wrapped into one.

I hope he comes back to the "segregation would have ended because of the free-market economics of it" idea.  It's brilliant precisely because it conflicts strongly with the "You know, Rand, segregation actually happened, lasted for a century, and never made 'economic sense' in the first place" line of reasoning.  But, between the two streams of thought, you *know* the libertarian-theorist is always going to take the theoretically pure path over the "this actually happened" path.  This behavior is so predictable that leading such guys off the rails is like shooting fish in a barrel.  Still kinda fun, though.


I recall him making the point that no one in their right mind would try to open a segregated business nowadays; he neglected to point out that part of the reason for that is most of us have grown up in a society without enforced segregation, so the very idea would be foreign to us.  Similarly, the idea of a society without enforced segregation was completely foreign to Southerners prior to '64, so the possibilitiy of them somehow ending it on their own is a bit silly.

In Mississippi, anyone who "printed, typewritten or written matter urging or presenting for public acceptance or general information, arguments or suggestions in favor of social equality or of intermarriage between whites and Negroes, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and subject to fine not exceeding five hundred (500.00) dollars or imprisonment not exceeding six (6) months or both."

A true libertarian would denounce segregation as an abuse of local government, rather than defend it out of contempt for using the Commerce Clause to end it.

Passivity of government that serves to perpetuate segregation or discrimination...libertarians are fine with that.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Tenn.) spoke in more detail about his position on marijuana on "Fox News Sunday." He does not support legalization, but believes marijuana users should not be sent to prison."The main thing I've said is not to legalize them but not to incarcerate people for extended periods of time," Paul said.

"Look, the last two presidents could conceivably have been put in jail for their drug use, and I really think, you know, look what would have happened, it would have ruined their lives. They got lucky, but a lot of poor kids, particularly in the inner city, don't get lucky. They don't have good attorneys, and they go to jail for these things and I think it's a big mistake."

Does that sound like a clarion call for continuing the war on marijuana to you? Sure, it's not necessarily a call for full legalization and treatment like tobacco and alcohol like I would prefer. What else could he be advocating other than decriminalization? Reducing drug sentences? Increasing funding for public defenders?

That's pretty much what he says in the link I posted.

He has to walk a fine line, because he'll never survive the GOP primaries if he supports full legalization.  His campaign will prbably be a repeat of his father's campaigns in 2008 and 2012.  Regardless, even if Cheech and Chong were president and vice president, there are still enough Republicans in Congress to block legalization, with help from some Democrats.

Sure, he doesn't support my position, but he's closer than the people who still insist that marijuana is more evil than Satan and Hitler put together.

And I think a lot of politicians like intentionally confusing people because then they can say they're sitting on both sides of the fence depending on who they're talking to.
