    Nevermind the fact that libertarianism started as a leftist movement, and is still viewed as leftist almost everywhere else except America.
    the original understanding of the constitution is something I favor us returning too. I don't care if you call it classic liberal, conservative, or origami, it beats the idiotic tenets of "left-libertarianism", which is just a bunch of class zealots crying because they are too stupid to make it in this world without massive government overreach.

    McCain Endorses Rand Paul
    that's somewhat surprising, unless Paul has become a hawk, unlike his father. McCain is one of the biggest hawks on capital hill.

    I wanted to call it doing an Obama on the candidates, but your version is just fine.

    I would hope many would support him. He. Makes the most sense of all the candidates

    Only your hard leftist and rhinos will criticize him for it

    Paul is the only candidate that defers to the constitution in most of his policies

    You're done playing the games and you have been for a while?? How old are you? Like early 20's.

    Re: McCain Endorses Rand Paul

    So tired of these misleading titles about Rand Paul.

    McCain is not endorsing Paul in the primaries. But he would support him if he was the GOP nominee.

    Rand said the same thing before the 2012 primaries. Does that mean he endorsed every candidate in the primary?

    You clearly aren't paying attention.

    just look at who started the thread. Once you see that, you have to pretty much red flag everything said as being complete bull****

    Rand Paul collects yet another establishment politician. Are people still convinced this guy is some fresh outsider that will shake things up?
    McCain? Isn't that the same guy who thought Half-Term Governor Sarah Palin would make a spiffy Vice President? McCain has the leadership intelligence of a lard bucket. If John McCain endorses someone, you'd be wise to vote for the opponent.
