    I didn't think he did, Kitty. He (McCain) didn't endorse anyone in NH or the other states during the 2012 primaries and I never remember him saying anything negative about Paul. Paul threw his support behind McCain in 2008 when he dropped out of the race, and I know McCain appreciated that.

    Obama and Hilary's has been disastrous. You show you are not looking at what has happened the last 6 years

    Rand Paul collects yet another establishment politician. Are people still convinced this guy is some fresh outsider that will shake things up?
    This guy is running a brilliant strategy right now. I honestly think he can come out of the primaries. The only thing that would stop him is his position on wars.

    It's not a serious signifier to those of us who see the maverick label as having serious limitations. Reality is quite sobering. Idealism is great if you want to be a drunken or stoned fool. Outsider politics are so meaningless.

    I am so pleased they added the "left-libertarian" distinction to lean around here. You see that type of idiocy constantly, and it seems to follow that lean quite frequently.

    Ron Paul did not back McCain in 08. He backed the Constitution Party candidate.

    Lol, and how exactly is a conservative a libertarian? Here's a hint: They aren't.


    While some conservatives have "libertarian" leans, conservatism itself is about preserving tradition. Libertarianism is about preserving liberty.

    Nevermind the fact that libertarianism started as a leftist movement, and is still viewed as leftist almost everywhere else except America.

    That's an important qualifier. I'm pretty sure McCain will support anyone who is the republican nominee.

    This is very good news. No all we need is for the GOP to take the Senate in a few weeks and the stage is all set for Paul to become the new Barry Goldwater and it will be 1964 all over again.
