    Rand Paul wins, and libertarians rejoice

    Right Now - Rand Paul wins, and libertarians rejoice

    By David Weigel | May 18, 2010; 8:00 PM ET

    Two years ago, Rand Paul was a harried campaign surrogate, trying desperately to get Republicans interested in supporting -- and big media interested in covering -- the quixotic presidential campaign of his father, Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.).

    Tonight, Rand Paul is the Republican Party's nominee for the U.S. Senate in Kentucky, after clobbering former front-runner Trey Grayson. Paul is set to carry even Boone County, where Grayson lives. When the Associated Press called the race, Paul was winning by 22 points with about a third of precincts in.
    Great news! Let's carry this momentum into 2010 and 2012!

    I live near cincinnati. Grayson was claiming he was a Northern KY conservative in that market. Of course, Paul's patron-Bean Ball Bunning was called that "damn catholic from Cincinnati" by the Louisville GOP establishment at one time

    So is this guy much like Ron Paul, ideologically speaking? Gold standard, "fair" tax, etc?

    Ron Paul is not a fair tax supporter; as i understand it, Rand is in favor of a muscular defense and supports the War in Afghanistan and Iraq (unlike his father).

    but both are associated generally with the libertarian wing of the Republican Party, yes.

    I guess what I'm trying to figure out is whether he is a libertarian or WTFCRAZYlibertarian like his father.

    He is also "pro life"-an issue that splits the libertarians

    I for example, am part of the pro-choice, libertarian non-religious wing of the GOP. I know plenty of libertarians that are bible thumping right to lifers as well

    So according to the tea party you're a radical leftist.

    How is Ron Paul crazy?

    nope-but you knew that

    there are plenty of pro choice tea party members. That movement is about the parasitic taxation and waste of the public coin by both dems and republicans. Abortion is not a tea party issue.
