One of you will end up here next!
Which brings me to the Tea Party movement. What I am seeing at the present time is REAL Tea Partiers taking over, and not the fake Tea Party Express, which has been attempting to hijack the movement. I was harsh on them for a while, but now I am very optimistic that the real McCoy is going to take the party back, and not the fakes. To me, the Tea Partiers are essentially two groups. One group could be called Paleocons, like myself, who want the government out of things that are none of their damn business to begin with. The other group consists of those who want to regulate peoples' lives, in spite of the anti-government rhetoric they pay lip service to. These are the ones I am happy to see kicked to the curb.
Yes, Rand Paul does have some issues that I strongly disagree with, but he also brings to the table some very good common sense. I am happy to see him win, and I think he will be a great Senator.

the MEANING of KENTUCKY is NOT libertarian
this is TODAY, after all
From what I've read about Rand, and admittedly its limited thus far, Rand seems to be what I've been saying was needed for Ron Paul for a while...
Namely, Ron Paul's generalized views mixed with some legitimate pragmatism and realism, mixed with a slightly less radical foreign defense policy.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
