Top Republican: Rand Paul Is Doing a Lot Better Than His Dad

Sounds lie Rand's sell-out on the "military stuff" is complete and since government shouldn't be involved in marriage at all, his favoring the government blessing of same sex marriage is far from a libertarian position. Maybe the libwaps can cheer the move.

The Blaze reports:
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) met with about 25 major Republican donors on Wednesday to discuss making changes to the 2016 Republican Party platform to draw in more young voters, including potentially changing the party’s approach to same-sex marriage.

All of the donors present had contributed the maximum $32,400 to the Republican National Committee, said Shaun McCutcheon, who was the lead plaintiff in this year’s landmark McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission Supreme Court case...

McCutcheon said Paul “did excellent. It was an awesome meeting. He answered all the questions.”

“He did have a libertarian streak,” McCutcheon said. “They did talk about the military stuff and the foreign policy because of his dad. I thought he did a lot better than Ron did. I think he’s learned. Some things the RNC is not going to negotiate on.”


  1. The one and only thing the Republican leadership will not compromise on? WAR... war always and everywhere. They are the War Party. They have only one plank... WAR.
    Naturally they and their children will NEVER actually do any of the fighting.

  2. As the sellout continues. And the loser will be the non-crony capitalist producers of this country. The winners will be the oligarchy and the parasites.

  3. Rand Paul: Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iraq

  4. It's a tough one : if Rand Paul voices the libertarian principals of his father, the Republican establishment will not let him get on the ballot. So for the time being he needs to parrot the official party line. Let's hope that if and when he actually gets elected that he swings back more towards his libertarian roots. For that long-shot hope, I think he deserves our support. Any other person the Republican establishment let's on the ballot will be far more neocon, with no libertarian roots at all.
