    I'm okay with that too. Defeating Washington on top of the machine defeat would be a nice added bonus.

    Kinda. His was "change". Not some man vs the machine kind of scenario, where "I shall defeat Washington", by electing me to become the chief "Washingtonite".

    Here is what Fox has on it. Yahoo, and a few others didn't even have his Campaign Platform nor what his rally was called. More of the MS Media reporting, again.

    Expected. Rand Paul is officially in the race. Not a big announcement like Cruz, just a little posting on his website, but he is officially in the race. [/FONT][/COLOR]
    The announcement is tonight in Kentucky at the Galt Hotel.


    Paul is less of a nut than his dad, but he will face a hard ceiling in the Primary. This is going to be a campaign in which foreign policy matters.

    Calvin Coolidge would be my guess, depending on how you measure.

    Good thing a real libertarian is in the race.

    How is Paul not a Constitutionalist, again? Seems he has trouble playing populist amongst those on the Right.

    Re: Rand Paul announces presidential run

    He wont win because people wont take the time to understand his often complex thought processes. And really he is not representative of the majority of America which is mostly socialist or evangelical. But I cant say I disagree with most of what he stands for. I just wish he would run as an independent.

    It should at least be fun debating his ideas on this forum.
