He’s trying to bridge the (perhaps) unbridgeable gap between libertarians and traditional-values conservatives. Each one, if taken to its extreme, eliminates the other. Possibly each side must give way for a candidate to harness both sides. But then you could have the result we used to call “falling between two stools”—nobody wins.
He’s not wrong! And part of that would be getting rid of the
politicians who are giving the opposition over to the bad guys!
“Hes trying to bridge the (perhaps) unbridgeable gap between libertarians and traditional-values conservatives.”
Reagan did it.
Bush destroyed that coalition with his spending spree and now Rand Paul is trying to piece it back together.
To take Rand Paul seriously, is to reject him. There is no other course, if you are a serious person.
Sen. Rand Paul clarifies remarks on abortion, confirms he is 100% pro-life
He's not. Can you show us a link that supports your claim?
He can’t, because it’s a lie. The Bushbots are out in full force.
That would be JebBushbots?
Bush bots - screw off
DOMA is the law of the land. Why would you advocate abandoning it or not defending it?
I think what he is saying in his last statement is that people (we) want moral & reltious people to be their (our) leaders, but their (the leaders’) overriding message is to fix the country’s economy, not to fix the country’s moral nature. He is right. The moral nature can only be fixed by salvation, and that comes from God. JMO.
“I think right now if we say we’re only going to [have] one man, one woman marriage, we’re going to lose that battle because the country is going the other way right now,” Paul said. “If we’re to say each state can decide, I think a good 25 or 30 states still do believe in traditional marriage, and maybe we allow that debate to go on for another couple of decades.”
relitous s/b religious
Doesn't sound like any Libertarian I have ever talked to. Hope he means it.
In a real sense - Rand is a sell-out. Just like his dad.
It’s one thing to be against abortion or same-sex marriages. But if in fact you claim; “We’ll lose the issue on a national level - lets leave it to the states...”
The then enemy has already won.
I can not support a candidate who waives the white flag while “leaving it to the state”.
I’m all for weakening the federal government.
I firmly believe in state’s rights.
We will be LUCKY if SCOTUS throws the issue back to the states.
Abortion should never have been a federal mandate.
