RAND PAUL FOR PRESIDENT
« on: January 31, 2015, 09:24:01 AM »




... there is no doubt ... he is a STRONG politician.
Smart, well-spoken, pedigreed, sensible, likable ...
and the big story right now ... a year out from the
Iowa primary ... is that many libs and 'progressives'
REALLY like him, personally, as well as his curious
mix of libetarianism and red/blue (purple?) grassroots.

"
It’s kind of dangerous to have a Republican like Rand,” said the senior Paul aide. “It’s blindingly obvious to [Democrats] that Rand is the Republican who can reach across the party.”

Rand Paul = Democrats’ Enemy #1

ENEMY OF THE BLUE STATE 08.07.14

Democrats fundraise and campaign by exploiting concerns about right-wing extremism. But at least at the moment, what they apparently fear most is the rise of a candidate who could potentially poach enough of their supporters to beat them in 2016.

Rand Paul has not yet formally announced he is running for the Republican nomination. But with a lead in GOP polls and already laying the foundation for the infrastructure of a campaign, the junior senator from Kentucky is considered the early front-runner, one who is transparent about his desire to appeal to a broad range of voters—and that has Democrats worried.

Quote
He has campaigned against domestic spying and the use of drones on American citizens—memorably conducting a 13-hour filibuster in 2013 on the latter—and has criticized both Republicans and Democrats for their foreign policy. He generated headlines this year when he refused to blame recent violence in Iraq on President Obama, instead pointing a finger at the Bush administration, particularly Dick Cheney. In Iowa this week, he labeled the conflict in Libya “Hillary’s war,” providing a preview of what the general election could look like with both of them in it.

And Paul’s determination to make the GOP more inclusive makes him much harder to vilify than conservatives who might stomp their feet at such a notion
.

from a couple weeks ago:


"
I've never voted for a Republican in my life, but in 2016, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul will be my choice for president.


I'm a Liberal Democrat. I'm Voting for
Rand Paul in 2016. Here Is Why


Posted: 01/17/2015
H. A. Goodman
Columnist, journalist, and author published in
The Hill's Congress Blog, The Jerusalem Post,
Salon.com, and other publications


The editor of Breitbart Unmasked, a site that I enjoy immensely and find informative, recently told me that supporting Rand Paul disqualifies a person from being labeled a progressive. My rebuttal was that he might be right. However, I also mentioned that Democratic Senator Tim Kaine of Virginia agreed with my latest Congress Blog piece. In the article, I explain why Rand Paul is correct in questioning the legality of President Obama's troop deployments. Sadly, people at UC Berkeley are more interested in protesting Bill Maher than condemning a conflict George McGovern stated weakens our country in the same manner as Vietnam. Hundreds of airstrikes, over 3,000 soldiers deployed, and a request for $5.6 billion is a war, folks.

Quote
Rand Paul is my candidate in 2016, even though the Tea Party would consider me Joseph Stalin's love child. I'm for immigration reform and believe that illegal immigrants benefit this country. I've written many articles criticizing Tea Party paranoia. I'm against demagoguery from people like Paul Ryan who unfairly target inner city citizens and I'm for the federal legalization of gay marriage and marijuana. I think Ted Cruz is a buffoon and that we should listen to Stephen Hawking over Senator "Green Eggs and Ham" on climate change. Finally, I've also written two novels about the evils of religious fundamentalism and political demagoguery.

On all these possible points of contention with Rand Paul, the reality is that he isn't Ted Cruz or Lou Dobbs on these matters. Sen. Paul is a self-described "moderate" on immigration, much to the dismay of Tea Party Republicans. Paul's recent Bill Maher interview shows he's open to cleaner energy alternatives. Most importantly, Paul doesn't abide by the right-wing rhetoric blaming poor people for their predicament, or claiming God wants people to do this or that. Congress at the end of the day has the power of the purse, so if President Rand Paul scares you on economic matters, simply remember that only Congress can repeal or alter government programs and decide on budgets.

Just like Obama, he continues to act as though he's still running for office years after being sworn into office.

In the four years he's been in the U.S. Senate (at taxpayer expense), has Rand so much as mentioned any of the following bills even once?

Why did he endorse Mitch McConnell?

Why does he support the Trans-Pacific Partnership?

Why did he vote to endorse the myth of man-made global warming (even though practically everyone in the country knows full well that, whenever Democrats start blabbing about "climate change," they're referring specifically to climate change allegedly caused by human-generated CO2)?

Why, in his first budget proposal, did he call for maintaining the parasitic war budget for "two years" at Obama's "requested levels" while simultaneously cutting the social safety net in the midst of a banker-engineered depression?

If people wish to spend the next 21 months gushing over Rand the way liberals gushed over Obama for all of 2008, they are of course free to do so.

I, for one, want no part of it.

I'm sick to death of being told over and over again, election season after election season, that I must "choose" between...

... yep, rough road ahead ... which is why I stress the
importance of many Dems jumping ship to support him
in many swing States ... which is assuredly his strategy
for winning. Hopefully, his cuddling up too closely to
the sensible leftwing won't ostracize the Libertarian/Conservative
base. I, too, can't figure his support for TPP ... perhaps he
can be swayed if we apply enough pressure.

Mr 'Trans Pacific' Rand Paul would just put people back to sleep.

When Rand runs against Bush and either drops out and endorses Bush or agrees to be his VP, just remember, 'I told you so'.

When it was clear that Bush would run I asked myself... "How in the world could Bush possible get elected without massive voter fraud.  Rand Paul came to mind.  A Rand Paul VP would make voting for Bush much more palatable.

Washington is nothing but one giant brothel.
Appointing a new manager of the brothel changes nothing.

It does nothing to change the Clientele of Lobbyists from Big Pharma, Military Industrial Complex, and Wall Street.
The final word on what tricks get performed still lies with the owners of the Bothel, and they are the Central Banks.

Rand Paul loyalty is made explicit when he stated "[The] administration should prioritize negotiating the Trans-Pacific Partnership"

IF he is allowed to get into the Whitehouse Whorehouse, he will be an absolute nightmare.

First off his economics would be those of Austerity which would lead to riots and an actual police state, demanded by the public. The only 'action' he would be allowed to take against the Federal Reserve would be to Nationalize it - which would mean the Tax payer would get stuck with mountains of debt and the end of the US Dollar as the worlds reserve currency.

Rand Paul is not his father, and so he does support deploying the military to occupy countries and enforce the American New Roman Empire. If they want a War that he will not sign off on, then they will simply engineer a massive false flag to get their war. See they can force him out of isolationism and use his isolationist reluctance as perfect cover.

Rand Paul will not abolish the Federal Reserve, he will not give Guantanmo back to Cuba, he will not lift sanctions, he will not pull the USA out of the UN, he will not bring the troops back home, he will not issue debt free greenbacks.

He is a waste of time.

Should I be wrong, they have a number of options :

(a) They can crash the economy by not loaning money and shrink the money supply.
(b) They can do a massive False Flag.
(c) They can blow his head off from the grassy knoll.

Waste of time.

You want to fail put all your faith in some magical leader that is going to save you ?

You want a real answer ?
Well its this "Educate the public". Because an informed public would demand isolationism and end of empire, an informed public would demand an investigation into 911, an informed public would demand debt free money, and so on . . .

An educated public is the answer, not another president to run the WhoreHouse in Washington.
An educated public would be a leaderless resistance which would remain undefeated champion of a constitutional republic.

I understand, like it is difficult to imagine anyone being so dumb they would want to end The Bill of Rights.

However, I never thought anyone would be so dumb as to walk down main street with their trousers falling down so people can see their underwear. There are other really dumb things, like getting a tattoo because its trendy, which by very definition means it will go out of fashion an then they are stuck with it.

The herd instinct is so strong they really would jump off a cliff with the other lemmings rather than be left behind.

My point is, they are polling people who ARE walking with their pants down who know as much about the Trans Pacific as I know about plant life at the bottom of the Indian ocean.

I have to confess I'm guilty of knowing more about candidates I don't like than candidates I could possibly stomach. 

The key is that people like you and me (buy large numbers) have to start running to start flooding the system and really push the status quo.

Rand Paul Says GOP Must Get ‘Beyond Deportation’

Rand Paul: Republicans must move ‘beyond deportation’
By Katie Zezima   
April 1 at 11:37 am

Republicans need to move “beyond deportation” in order to make inroads with Latino voters and focus on issues such as the economy and jobs, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Tuesday.

“The bottom line is the Hispanic community, the Latino community, is not going to care until we get beyond this issue,” he said.

Speaking before a symposium on conservatives and Latino media Tuesday morning, Paul said "showing up" helps, but Republicans need to take a different tack and start "saying something that's different from what we've been saying." ...
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

Democrats cannot rely on a mythical
nontransferable 'Obama Coalition'


by Egberto Willies

Most of us for too long have bought into the traditional media’s assertion of an Obama coalition. The Huffington Post article “Republicans Plot To Shatter ‘Obama Coalition’ In 2016” got me to thinking. Is there really even an Obama coalition?
President Obama won the presidency twice. Each time he won he did so by substantial margins. His 2008 winning percentages were 43, 95, 67, 62, and 66 for the white, black, Latino, Asian, and other groups respectively. His 2012 winning percentages were 39, 93, 71, 73, and 58 for the white, black, Latino, Asian, and other groups respectively.



Historically, blacks voted almost exclusively Democratic after the Dixiecrats became the core of the Republican Party (after the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964). Younger blacks do not hold that loyalty even though their current propensity is still almost exclusively Democratic or not voting at all.

Latinos and other ethnic and cultural minorities while having a propensity to vote Democratic do not have the same type of attachment to the party based on legislative history. George W. Bush’s 2004 election is probative. His 2004 winning percentages were 58, 11, 44, 44, and 40 of the white, black, Latino, Asian, and other groups respectively.

The above numbers are electorally balanced given today’s realities. It should put a fear in every Democratic presidential candidate’s psyche. Just like Karl Rove was wrong about a permanent Republican majority in 2001, those who claim some sort of Obama coalition that guarantees a 2016 Democratic president are wrong. The "Bush coalition" of 2004 actually looks much more balanced and sustainable than the mythical Obama coalition.

All Republicans need to do to replicate the 2004 Bush coalition is to simply not act crazy. A few months back I wrote the piece “Don’t laugh but Rand Paul could be our next president” that had many calling me naive. This even as we are a country that elected an articulate actor (Reagan) and a less than intellectually competent "Yale" graduate (George W. Bush):

Rand Paul does not need to blow up the Obama coalition to win. He simply needs to skim the fat. His little excursions into the liberal base can do just that. His base is much more committed to winning and voting than our base. The Florida-13 election was probative.
It would be irresponsible if liberals do not start taking serious steps now to be inoculated on the populous flank. This will help not only in the presidential race but in every district.

The biggest fear is that if there is a coronation of a select few, many potential candidates remain undeveloped. Worse is the inability to recover from an unknown. The fact that Ronald Reagan and George Bush were elected presidents of the United States means it is not farfetched that Rand Paul could be our next president.

Ron Paul I agreed.   But his boy  no way. Just another controlled puppet. Sorry folks but can't support  anybody  that is not true to cause NO matter what.  To many times he voted party line.   Seems just lately wasn't there a big riff about that 98 to1 vote, and am sure there are others where he put aside his core to go with party. I pressed for time today  so will check in this evening.

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

Here's his voting record from VOTE SMART ... for reference:

... Jones has been very forgiving of
Rand's mixed-bag approach, but he always
says something like, "... but I KNOW him ...
he's for REAL! He's cherry-pickin' issues ...
one from this tree, one from that ... so as to
piece together a coalition that can WIN!"

I think Alex is hoping he is really like his father, Ron Paul. But he is NOT his father and the sooner he realizes that the better.

Yea, Alex has deep and very real connections to Ron Paul, and the family . . . so it is going to be very, very, hard for Alex to not support Rand Paul, especially when the other candidates are probably going to be absolutely awful.

This is where ON THE ISSUES places Rand Paul
as per his voting record and statements ... he
is at 50% on the Social Scale and 90% on
the Economic Scale:




http://www.ontheissues.org/senate/Rand_Paul.htm

Social Score -----------------------------

This measures how much the candidate believes government should intervene in people's personal lives or on social issues. These issues include health, morality, love, recreation, prayer and other activities that are not measured in dollars.

A high score (above 60%) means the candidate believes in tolerance for different people and lifestyles.
A low score (below 40%) means the candidate believes that standards of morality & safety should be enforced by government.


Economic Score ----------------------------

This measures how much the candidate believes government should intervene in people's economic lives. Economic issues include retirement funding, budget allocations, and taxes.

A high score (above 60%) means the candidate believes in personal responsibility for financial matters, and that free-market competition is better for people than central planning by the government.
A low score (below 40%) means the candidate believes that a good society is best achieved by the government redistributing wealth. The candidate believes that government's purpose is to decide which programs are good for society, and how much should be spent on each program.

This measures how much the candidate believes government should intervene in people's economic lives. Economic issues include retirement funding, budget allocations, and taxes.

TED NUGENT vs. RAND PAUL

http://www.breitbart.com/big-hollywood/2015/01/31/freedom-lovers-sarah-palin-ted-nugent-team-up-for-wild-day-at-texas-ranch/
Freedom Lovers: Sarah Palin, Ted Nugent Team Up For Wild Day at Texas Ranch

The latest edition of Amazing America with Sarah Palin provided that perfect concoction to make a liberal’s head explode–two freedom loving Americans enjoying the outdoors and hunting while talking about God and clean living.

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin hit the road herself for this installment of the Sportsman Channel program to spend a day with legendary rocker Ted Nugent. The duo were two peas–or two guns on a rack–when Palin paid a visit to Nugent’s Spirit Wild Ranch in China Spring, Texas.

...
Nugent called his meeting with Palin an “honor and privilege”. Palin admitted she was exhausted but “my heart is filled with great memories”.

A visit with another pro-God, pro-gun, freedom loving American seemed to be good for the soul for Palin. She closed the show with “swelling pride about the deep beauty of this land of ours.” Palin’s visit put a premium on “the abundance of options that freedom gives us”. She reminded viewers that in this amazing country of ours “you can grow up to be anything you want to be.” Ted Nugent of Detroit is living proof.

School Is Now In Session.  Pay Attention


I will preface....
Unless I am giving the NWO globalists WAY MORE credit for having an actual brain in their head then they deserve a Bush / Paul ticket is the ONLY hope Jeb has for ANYONE to take him 'remortely' serious NO MATTER how much loving the MSM gives him.   As a matter of fact, if the MSM gives us ALL BUSH ALL THE TIME.  It's really going to backfire on the globalist who, IMO, want a republican globalist back in the White House so they can really ramp up the war agenda that the NWO has been chomping at the bit to have.  Specially with a republican congress just sitting there twiddling their collective thumbs

Does ANYONE remember what these republican critters campaigned on to get their sorry butts elected?  Constitutional RON Paul, Tea Party politics.  If these idiot republicans haven't figured it out by now, they'd better start at least ACTING like their the very congress critters they stumped on to get elected or, NO republican will stand a chance to get elected to the el-president's oval office.

The way it looks from over here, is that Jeb Bush is in worse shape for getting elected than his father was, back when his CARPET BAG'N  old man ran against the heavily democratic district seated by the very popular 'CONSERVATIVE' democrat Ralph Yarborough in the early 1970's where, ol mr CIA had to hire a fake third candidate (Democrat) to split up the district votes.

I don't believe the Bush crime family is stupid enough to have Sarah Palin run as a VP ticket.  I also firmly believe, that Rand would sellout for a VP ticket with Bush and, the Bush crime family needs a tea party facade just as badly as old man bush needed to run that fake third candidate in Houston in order for him to get elected.

I guarantee if this happens people like Alex Jones and others will endorse this marriage a 'necessary for... bla,bla,bla... fill in the blank.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

Please. There's no point in getting your hopes up at these savior illusions. Stop looking for a leader in Washington. We haven't had one for over 50 years. The last one this country even tried to have was murdered.

NONE of the scum that rises to the top of the septic lagoon that currently serves as modern American politics is going to "save the Republic" or give a crap about the Constitution because ALL OF THEM are sold out puppets to the banks and megacorporations — WITHOUT exception. Period. NONE. No one. None of them. None. I feel like I need to type it one more time. N-O-N-E.

  Completely agree.  Savior illusions.

Yet, the MSM is already getting the public ready for a Clinton Bush run.

One other little trick the NWO could be pulling by running two very unpopular retread candidates ON THE ONE HAND, is to bring in a 'RISING STAR' candidate out of the clear blue sky, like Obummer (could be a republican, doesn't matter) in their other hand.

This tactic would work well as the MSM piles on both Hillary and Jeb while over glorifying their 'out-of-no-where' NWO candidate shill.

  Yes, there may be a rising star.   Jeb and Hillary are worst than fresh dog-crap.

  But we have way too much to go thru before the next election---millions dying from measles, millions dying in snowstorms, a 1000 more black people being shot by trigger-happy cops.  LOL

  I just saw the news (ABC)---they will have a team of nurses at the Super Bowl to look for people with the scary symptoms of measles.  THE WORLD IS INSANE.
