He’s not Ron Paul, folks. Wake up.

Well, for that matter, Ron Paul isn’t exactly Ron Paul…

This is so funny that you posted this today! My husband and I were just talking about this last night. It all makes sense why Sarah Palin would be endorsing him. You are completely right, this is not Ron Paul.

Crap. Is there anyone out there running for office who doesn’t believe that we need to invade countries who haven’t attacked us and kill brown people?
Iran’s a threat? To whom? The Israelis have numerous nukes. Who else in the middle east has nukes?
In the mean time, we occupy around 170 foreign countries, defend other countries borders, but not our own. What does believing in a strong national defense mean, anyway?

Lew Rockwell, are you paying attention?!

Ron Paul couldn’t win a state wide election in Kentucky. Perhaps, Ron Paul couldn’t win a state wide election anywhere!

The support of a war machine is totally incompatible with any semblance of a free market economy and limited government which exists solely to protect individual liberty and private property.
Dad, take your boy to the woodshed!

Of course he’s not Ron…but he’s pretty damn good. I’ve had the opportunity to speak with him 2x – once in a fairly private atmosphere. You will not be disappointed if you like his father. There are some things you just have to do to get elected…sorry to say. The statement, “a serious threat,” doesn’t contain any policy in it – so there is no reason to get upset at that…and of course he believes, like his dad, in a “strong national defense.” Even Ron Paul had sim. flyers—complete with military equip. all over them in New Hampshire…hate to break it to you, but this is politics. I’m sticking with Rand…the only evidence you need is how nervous Cheney’s people are about it and all the neo-cons.

If you actually believe Rand Paul is pro-war, then you have been duped by a slick TV ad. Rand is taking tenative positions on controversial issues pending his election to the Senate, where he will be able to peruse classified documents pertaining to Gitmo and Iran.

“James Madison” — are you joking? Your comments can’t be for real, but then again, you can’t tell satire from fact nowadays.

Robert – “this is politics”? Indeed. And you have no idea how true that statement is. All politics is coercion, which is why you won’t see KDC.com licking the boots of politicians, Ron Paul or otherwise. All politics is about getting people to follow your diktats instead of the other guy’s. All politics is evil, corrupt, totalitarian, and is meant to keep you from freedom. I’m not “disappointed” at all – I couldn’t care less about Rand Paul or any other statist creep who wants to run/own me.

Amazing how some will toss out Rand but not offer any positive for Trey.
To close Guantanamo would require an alternative Guantanamo styled “POW” camp in MI, TX, KY, …, somewhere within the US. Until congress finds a way to un-do the fraud and deceit of Bush/Cheney maintaining Guantanamo is the only option. The US can maintain Guantanamo and remove the CIA/FBI/BATF torture squads while seeking a solution.
Guantanamo is a pile of &hit left behind by tyrants and traitors that needs correcting.
Rand Paul will fight within the Constitution, and serve, protect, and defend the Constitution.
Open your eyes and view the whole picture people.

Amazing how some will accuse others in said thread of tossing Rand Paul when nowhere in the title nor commentary is such a position taken.
FWIW, Guano and its ills can be addressed with the stroke of a pen.

1. Believes in a strong national defense
2. Opposes closing Guantanamo Bay (prison facility)
3. Believes Iran is a serious threat
All of which are token Republican talking points. Considering the fact that Paul is running for the Republican nod, I don’t think it’s outlandish.
