    Rand Paul Says ‘I Am Running for President’

    Well we all knew that this day was coming.

    It will be interesting to see just how far he appeals to the voters.

    Can we please stop the charade of him being for limited government and liberty or him being a libertarian?

    He opposes abortion rights, sponsored a life begins at conception bill, opposes marriage equality, supports a huge increase in military spending and is against legalizing marijuana, to name a few.

    Now,now. We all know the first lesson in politician school is pick a niche and lie until you're elected then go back on whatever platform you campaigned with. Okay maybe that's lesson 1-5.

    that apple fell so far from the tree might as well be an acorn.

    from Hitlary to anyone on the GOP, no one worth voting for this coming election:(

    Fun Stuff (from his campaign site):
    NSA Spy Cam Blocker
    $15
    That little front facing camera on your laptop or tablet can be a window for the world to see you - whether you know it or not! Stop hackers and the NSA with this simple camera blocker. Safe and practical.

    Tin foil is dreadfully expensive and hard to find. But he is selling "koozies", which, uh, I am not sure what to think.

    Not all Libertarians are pro-abortion or pro-gay "marriage." That's usually where we have a rift, but we agree on the more important issues such as reducing the overall size of the federal government, simplifying the tax code, and protecting our individual liberties.

    Dr. Rand Paul does differ from his father, Dr. Ron Paul, when it comes to our military usage and that's the only thing I dislike about him.

    Dr. Rand Paul is also pro-medical marijuana as well as removing the protectionist ban on industrialized hemp.

    You will never 100% agree with anyone. The financial terrorists at the Federal Reserve must be brought to justice and the closest person to get that done is Dr. Rand Paul, which means those globalist scum will do anything they can to prevent reigning in the large, private, central bank.

    The last POTUS that wanted to reign in the F.R. was JFK.

    The photo is fake. Though that certainly doesn't excuse Rand's campaign from posting it.

    They retweeted it to show how low the left will stoop to in their attempts at smearing someone like him who does not tow the party line.

    Suuuuure they did. That's why they also pulled the post 20 minutes later. Not because they realized the huge mistake they made, no sir. :rolleyes:

    This is certainly shaping up to be quite the circus.

    It looks like they made a mistake. What does it have to do with the "left" though? Someone just decided to troll his campaign.

    For some strange reason this thread consistently crashes Chrome when it loads.

    It wouldn't have happened if his campaign hadn't been in such a fervor to post pictures of apparent supporters.

    I had issues with it at work too on Chrome. Kept getting an error message that page can't load and some weird grey error screen. Only happens in this thread.

    I picture Randy stepping on a rake. He certainly has the hair for it.

    It's hard to take a site that refers to PP as "the abortion business" seriously. That's like calling Apple "the keyboard business". And considering that the site includes numerous overlapping categories... unless "African-Americans" or "Christians" can't also be doctors, nurses, veterans, or musicians... it is a curious absence. Another curious absence is religions other than Christianity and Judaism.
