    Liberals should be really scared about this because this guy is as conservative/libertarian as they get. He things anti-drug laws are unconstitutional (which they are) and succession is a justifiable legal concept that should be brought back. He may not win but the fact he and his dad are gaining in popularity shows how much the political winds in this country are changing.

    As weird as it may sound I'd rather have a libertarian wingnut than a far right wingnut at least this way we agree on a few things.

    Ron Paul named his son "RAND Paul"? Jesus, the guy's better than almost all other Republican politicians, but what a fucking joke.

    Also, didn't the GOP spend the last year arguing you need experience to hold political office? I don't agree with that, but it was the basis of their campaign. Sounds like it's more nepotism than merit getting this inexperienced guy through.

    Well I sadly will not be able to vote for Rand since I'm not from Kentucky, but here's why I support him. He has a solid understanding of economics and understands that the Federal Reserve is the culprit behind our latest downturn, he believes in a strong national defense but not military interventionism, he opposes bailouts, he opposes stimulus packages, he opposes cap and trade, and he opposes universal healthcare supplied by government. He also claims he'll never vote for an unbalanced budget, be it a Democrat or Republican budget. I also look at the fact that he was willing to make his stance on the issues known immediately, whereas his opponent only last week made his official stance on certain issues known and many of them mirror what Rand has been saying all along.

    Actually his name is Randal.

    Rand isn't running as your typical Republican.
