Rand Paul: Dems ‘Scared’ I’m Going to Run Against Hawkish Hillary Clinton (Video)

Politics continues to get more and more interesting. Things are changing in a big way.

It’s not all driven by Rand Paul. Technology (and social media specifically) has a lot to do with it. The economy sputtering does too. And of course the general war fatigue.

But Rand is articulating a message which reflects where many Americans are right now, in a way that I’ve never seen in my lifetime.

With Christie hobbled, Jeb Bush’s lukewarm (at best) reception, Establishment GOP floats another Romney run?

Yes, this is the genius masterstroke the DC GOP has been waiting for.

You have to hand it to the establishment. They keep trying. So what if Romney is another big government Republican which a large part of the GOP vote couldn’t really support in 2012.

Is Hillary the Corporate Candidate enough of a populist for the Dems?

The short answer is yes. Don’t worry Democrats (and Republicans) Hillary will be plenty liberal or “progressive” or whatever the word for statist will be in 2016. But part of that package, the pro-state package, is partnering with powerful corporate interests. That’s just the way it is. The state in many ways is owned by these interests but the state also owns these corporate interests too. It is the crony capitalist tango and it is a key part of having large government. It defines our economic system and Hilary Clinton knows this and knows how to work it.
