    Hasn't every candidate since the beginning of mankind said they will do that regardless of their political party?

    You missed the joke.

    Re: Would you vote for Rand Paul?

    I prefer his father to Rand...Rand seems to compromise too much and he is still too much of a big military/America policing the world guy for my taste.

    But he obviously has a much better chance at the W.H. then his Pop did (who had virtually none).

    And I think he would be a definite step forward.

    WAAAAAAAY better then either of the last two loser POTUS's anyway.

    Re: Would you vote for Rand Paul?

    To get his father's angry white male supporters, Rand Paul couldn't resist a bigotry campaign - for which his supporters are now spamming white supremacy and demands for racial segregation all over the Internet - and increasingly on this forum. No, I'm not a Southern Confederate who wants racial segregation returned to the USA - so of course no I will not vote for Rand Paul.

    It is regrettable that kissing the ass of his father's angry white bigots for their money and fanaticism was something he could not resist. So we'll have to listen to is advocacy of segregation for the next 3 decades.

    Poll soon to follow.
    Honestly? I have grave misgivings. I'm a consistent Republican voter (minor exceptions here and there) but I'm deeply worried by his foreign policy platform. He's held his cards closer to his chest on that so I can't say if he's precisely like his father but so far he seems to lean heavily in that direction. At a time when I think we need bold, involved, and assertive foreign policy more than ever I'm deeply concerned about what a Rand administration would look like. I haven't ruled him out completely like I have some others (Cruz, Perry, etc) but I'd need to be convinced. The question really becomes can I overlook what I think is an abysmal foreign policy platform in favor of his better attributes and the answer is I'm not sure. It would depend on his opponent, what the world looked like, and how I felt. Depending on circumstances it might edge me towards Hillary.

    I'd much prefer someone like Ryan, Walker, Christie, Bush, etc. I'm just not comfortable with Rand. I suspect I'm not totally atypical if you canvassed your average Northeast suburban Republican.

    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 .
    Look around Nimby, it's not the 1960's anymore. People (some) in the GOP and Rand Paul are still stuck in the 60's and earlier by their thoughts and speech, they've not evolved, yet. I'd give the GOP leg humpers another 20 to 30 years before they come around out of the Neanderthal age.
