Pitching himself as a different kind of Republican, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Tuesday officially announced he’d seek the GOP nomination for president.
“Join me as together we seek a new vision for America,” he continued. “Today, I announce with God’s help, with the help of liberty lovers everywhere, that I am putting myself forward as a candidate for president of the United States of America.”
The room burst into cheers of “President Paul!”
“I have a message that is loud and clear and does not mince words,” Paul said. “We have come to take our country back.”
Who is taking our country back? And taking it back from whom?
Rand Paul is a true libertarian and fiscal conservative. He’s not a tea party favorite, as he opposes the Iraq War and overseas intervention. He’s an isolationist. And he’s not much of an evangelist or gay-basher. He’s for the decriminalization of marijuana. His appeal is to the younger generation, but he is not the face of Republican politics today. He has rabid, but rather dim followers.
UPDATE – This says it all….
UPDATE 2: Also, if you want to change education, you better spell “eductation” right on your website.
