Huffington Post: I’m a Liberal Democrat. I’m Voting for Rand Paul in 2016. Here Is Why.

What is interesting particularly to me is that on economic issues Rand Paul is by FAR FAR FAR the most “conservative” of the likely GOP candidates. On other issues I think he just takes a pragmatic and grown up approach. This is a winning combination. Jeb and Christie ain’t going to do it folks. They won’t get elected. Rand has a real shot and he has a chance at winning the presidency in a completely unique way which will totally screw with the political consultant class in DC. And let’s be honest, liberal,or conservative, or whatever, we all want to see those guys get it.

Jeb (probably) gets in, The establishment steps up attacks on Rand Paul (They fear him)

The establishment is circling the wagons. They want their defense industry money protected. The Chamber of Commerce wants its corporate welfare protected. The big banks want to make sure their corporate welfare is protected. The establishment GOP consultants who would rather lose and make millions than have a smaller government want their cottage industry protected. House leadership fears a libertarianish president. So does the Senate leadership.

The whole Beltway GOP does not want the party to evolve. (The Dems don’t want the GOP to evolve either.)They would rather it remain a big government party with a slightly different social flavor than the Democrats. (The Dems would prefer this also.)

Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders may run for president (Video)

Please, please, please run Mr. Sanders. It would be a lot of fun. And though I am disgusted by your economics, and though your ideas basically lead to the enslavement of the human spirit (I know you would argue otherwise) you for the most part are not a hack like Hillary Clinton. (Though you do do the Koch boggieman dance in this interview, and you don’t seem to have a problem with piles of union money manipulating the political process, bigger piles than the Kochs.) I would enjoy seeing the 2 of you debate very much. I promise I will not miss any of them and we will give any debates plenty of coverage.

I have to say though that every time I hear Mr. Sanders speak I am saddened. He’s a smart guy. He should understand why markets help everyday people. He should understand that socialism is death,that it is poison. How could someone as clearly bright as Mr. Sanders still cling to such a retrograde religion?

It’s hard to convert I guess. Especially in Burlington or Washington.

Hillary Clinton follows Christie to Mexico in search of Carlos Slim money

Hey, why not? It’s not like borders matter anymore anyway. So what if a foreign national is trying to influence presidential campaigns? Why should we be concerned with that? And it’s not like Slim is giving money directly to Clinton’s campaign anyway. His money has gone to her charity. So it’s all on the up and up.

So that’s Slim, Buffett, and Soros smiling at Clinton. The billionaires do love Hillary.

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.
