    Default Can Rand Paul Save the US?

    Rand Paul 2016 Frontrunner - Business Insider


    Rand Paul is according to this article a "front runner " for the GOP Nomination for US President in 2016.

    A13 hour filibuster on drones is one of his great claims to fame of course apart from being a famous son.

    Mc Cain was unimpressed:

    The 2016 prediction is real enough though

    Thought the republicans had learned their lesson, but obviously not. What the democrats need is the republicans with a zionist gun toting hillgillywanting poor people to die without medication, espousing anti societu selfish greedy politics, reminding what the republicans are really about. Great news.

    I'm a Hillary fan myself although she has done bad stuff ( every President of the US did,they consider it their right) so it wouldn't debar her from the job.

    Anyways I'd like to see what people think. On my last thread about Romney it turned out Paul Ryan was a bit of a fave now we are back to Rand or are we?

    If one gambles on politics the US presidential rate offers some great markets btw.

    Yeah I'd take the bookies pick as opposed to South China News and some blogger.

    13 hour filibuster ffs what a loon. Yeah that's how Regan, Nixon, Bush Sr and Jr got to be elected right? By being dicks during votes?

    The Republican problem in the last 2 elections has been losing the middle and appearing like obstructionists. There are enough sane GOPers who know going further and further right won't work.

    Fear not AP, I'm pretty meh about Rand,

    He's his own man, makes his own choices,

    Rand is not Ron,

    I'm reserving judgment on him for now,

    I won't be flinging any TJ quotes around on this thread, although I may have to step in if people start bad-mouthing Ron,

    If McSane is not impressed, then Rand Paul must be doing something right.
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    Yeah, I made money on Obama and a few other senatorial races, plus the PR vote in the House.
