    Isn't Rand Paul a Libertarian?

    Re: Rand Paul Holds the Lead in Kentucky over Jack Conway

    Here is just some of the crazy stuff he has said:
    -Get rid of the Department of Education (in a state where the motto is "Where Education Pays!")
    -Get rid of the Department of Agriculture (in a state where tobacco, corn, and livestock such as horses are subsidized)
    -He believes the American people and Obama is to harsh on BP
    -Completely opposes abortion even in incredibly extreme conditions such as incest
    -Believes that restaurants and businesses should be allowed to refuse service to ethnicity they are uncomfortable with.

    Re: Rand Paul Holds the Lead in Kentucky over Jack Conway

    <--- This conservative is firmly in support of Rand Paul. I may not like everything he stands for, but I like a hell of a lot that he believes and agree with him on the majority of principles that would guide his vote. And, compared to the other side, the things I dislike about him are absolutely positively dwarfed.

    Go Rand Paul.

    What the hell are you talking about ??? Rand Paul has lived in Kentucky for 20 years.

    Conway is an establishment politician that will rubber stamp every thing Harry Reid asks for.

    PORQUE!!!!!!



    We can't let this whacko win. Not even the mainstream Republicans like him. Any Kentuckians in here that feel the same way make sure you make it out to the polls in the coming weeks and don't take this Kentucky economy crushing out-of-towner!
    Isn't the Republican candidate highly likely to win in Kentucky, no matter who he/she is? Old habits are hard to change. I have lots of family around Hazard. Are you close?

    Re: Rand Paul Holds the Lead in Kentucky over Jack Conway

    Believe it or not, eastern Kentucky actually votes for Dems quite a bit, and the Governor of Kentucky is democrat. True that though, Kentucky has increasingly become a Red state, previously they were more of a swing state, having voted for the candidate to become president for the past 5 elections before Obama, but then again racism is still pretty prevalent in Kentucky.

    Conway is an establishment politician that will rubber stamp every thing Harry Reid asks for.
    -Supports the death penalty
    -Is against abortion unless in extreme cases
    -Opposes cap and trade and would like for there to be legislation protecting the coal industry
    -Is for gun control where it makes sense, supports carrying concealed weapons
    -Has saved Kentucky money as Attorney General on Medicaid fraud, and gas station price gouging (at one point our prices were getting much higher than Ohio's)
    -Supports establishing English as the official language of US (including all workers in US be required to read and write English)
    -Proposes a tax credit to businesses in Kentucky that prove they have created new jobs
    -Fully supported Bush's military tactics, as well as Obama's

    If it wasn't for Paul's "foot in mouth" disease, he would be totally crushing Conway. Still, I think he is going to be a decent Senator.

    Paul's not a career politician like Conway, so a few verbal blunders are to be expected. In any case, he should have no problem easily defeating Conway.

    Still plenty of days for Paul to say something stupid, but you're probably right. The guy honestly will probably get along a lot worse with Republicans and Dems than Conway would have.
