    Poll soon to follow.
    I marked no because it is highly unlikely. of course if my other choices were something like Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton, I'd have to consider Paul.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Saying stuff like that doesn't deceive anyone anymore, so you can stop with that now.

    Rand Paul is a great Senator who actually defends liberty from tyranny and corruption. To think otherwise would mean you must not love America.

    Here is my prediction.
    Most say "no way" and may vote for this or that candidate in the primaries, but come general elections, they'll sing praises to whoever is on the ticket and vote party line and all the negatives will be a distant memory.

    If he's in the running I would vote in the GOP primaries, I would vote for him in that, and I would vote for him in a general.

    If not I would have to evaluate between the LP candidate, the GOP candidate, possibly even the CP candidate, or just not voting for President at all if they all suck.

    I viewed neither Mitt Romney nor Gary Johnson as very palatable options... even if either would be at least marginally better than the fail we have now.

    I give him credit for being the only GOP with the guts to do that.
    If he doesn't become a TRUE Libertarian on social issues, like Goldwater, he can kiss the Younger and more independent voters good-bye .
    He's already flipped on what he said about the civil rights act, making it sound like he's for it, when he first said he wasn't for the civil rights act in an attempt to cover up his true feelings about it, you gotta keep an eye on those kinds of teabaggers.

    If he makes it to the debates, I hope whoever hosts the debates gives him as much speaking time as they gave his racist daddy.

    Of course I would, not that he would ever win.

    Re: Would you vote for Rand Paul?

    After reading your article, I really don't see much difference between Rand's position on Civil rights and that of Goldwater.

    Rand speaks for the entire GOP when saying none of the ACTs of the 1960's are necessary any more,
    since there is no longer discrimination in Civil Rights and Voting Rights.

    And now Rand has tweeked Jeb Bush's "act of love" comments, clearly setting himself up as THE alternative in the GOP.
    He's also up for reelection in 2016, giving him an easier platform to run in 2020 .

    Rand Paul comments about civil rights stir controversy

    And this is the kind of rhetoric that renders the person posting it impossible to take seriously.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
