    In a huge show of support, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul on Tuesday endorsed Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore, saying "we need more people in Washington, D.C. that will stand on principle and defend the Constitution." Paul's endorsement puts a stamp of approval on Moore's anti-Washington campaign which he rode to victory recently in a primary against Sen. Luther Strange, appointed earlier this year to replace former Sen. Jeff Sessions when he became the Attorney General.

    Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Tuesday introduced legislation to replace ObamaCare with, as he put it in a press release, “a health care plan grounded in broadly supported conservative reforms.” According to Paul (shown), the ObamaCare Replacement Act would both repeal the most onerous provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and provide Americans with greater flexibility in purchasing health insurance and care.“Getting government out of the American people’s way and putting them back in charge of their own health care decisions will deliver a strong, efficient system that doesn’t force them to empty out their pockets to cover their...

    Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul is warning Republicans not to repeal Obamacare without voting in a replacement for the health care law on the same day. “I think it's imperative that Republicans do a replacement simultaneous to repeal,” Paul said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” cautioning that disaster in the form of insurance company bankruptcies and a “massive” bailout could follow a move to repeal the law without a new one in its place. “If they don't, Obamacare continues to unravel.”

    It took me years to figure out that markets work better than government. I started out as a typical Ralph Nader-influenced consumer reporter, convinced that companies constantly rip us off. To me and most of my fellow left-leaning reporters, the answer was always: more regulation. Gradually, I figured out that regulation causes many more problems than the occasional rip-off artist does. Companies that served customers well prospered, while market competition meant cheaters seldom got away with cheating for long. Regulation, by contrast, lasted forever. It punished innovation, making it harder for good people to offer better alternatives. How do I...
  • Is Libertarian Gary Johnson a Good Alternative to Trump or Clinton?

    Former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson won the 2016 Libertarian Party nomination for president on Sunday, as expected, winning on the second ballot with 55 percent of the vote. A former two-term Republican governor of New Mexico, he sought the Republican nomination for president in 2012, before deciding by the end of 2011 to seek the Libertarian Party nomination instead.Ordinarily, the Libertarian Party and its candidates attract little attention in a presidential race. Johnson got the Libertarian Party nomination in 2012 and went on to garner a little over a million votes, falling just short of one percent of the...

    First, here are the biggest "losers." Nate Silver.

    Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul gave a literal middle finger to the media Thursday during a radio interview. This comes after Paul's low poll numbers led to his exclusion from Thursday night's main debate stage, which he views as an unfair decision by Fox Business. Paul is skipping the undercard debate and instead hosting a national online town hall.

    Two Hispanics, a diminutive Libertarian and a Donald loomed large in the fifth and thankfully, last Republican debate of 2015. The amigo Senators Rubio and Cruz stole the night "insulting" each other in what can only be described as a full-on duel between the sole Hispanics running. This was also the first time Senator Rand Paul had some strong moments, while Trump sustained his triumphant position with even more verbal firepower. Rubio vs Cruz "And you know, there was one commentator that put it this way that, for Marco to suggest our record's the same is like suggesting ‘the fireman...

    Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” Republican presidential candidate Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 93% said, “America is about done with” his opponent GOP front-runner Donald Trump because he is a “buffoon who insults women and calls them ugly,” and that has “become pitiful.” Paul said, “I think America is about done with him. I think we are ready to move on. I sensed that in the debate. There was up a silliness and lack of seriousness on his part that I think America will be done with him. The debate I think will reshuffle the pack. And I think...

    U.S. Sen. Rand Paul is seeking support from the Republican Party of Kentucky’s central committee in his bid to pursue an early presidential caucus in the commonwealth. Paul, R-Ky., transferred $250,000 to the RPK account to fund the caucus with plans to move an additional $200,000 “roughly mid fall after all the budgets and rules are finalized,” Paul told members of the RPK central committee in an email and letter sent Monday. The GOP presidential contender also has plans to host a conference call with central committee members this week in his endeavor to skirt a state statute that stipulates...

    U.S. Sen. Rand Paul wrote in a letter last week to nearly 350 members of the Republican Party of Kentucky's central committee that he had transferred $250,000 to a state GOP account to cover the initial costs of holding a presidential caucus next year. But committee members told the Herald-Leader on Tuesday that Paul hasn't provided a dime. In his letter, which was mailed about a week before the committee is to vote on whether to move forward with the caucus that Paul has requested, Paul wrote that he had already "transferred $250,000 in an RPK account to begin the...

Where is our sense? Where is our common sense?” Added the Kentucky senator: “This is a guy who has been pro-choice before he was pro-life. This is a guy who was liberal before he was conservative.

In an interview in the lobby of the Radisson hotel in downtown Cleveland about 12 hours before the first GOP presidential primary debate—which will happen across the street at the Quicken Loans Arena—Paul said he plans on “mixing it up” on Thursday night with his fellow top 10 GOP contenders and plans on “standing my ground” on issues that matter to him.

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Rand Paul announced plans to introduce legislation that would prevent “sanctuary cities” from harboring violent and dangerous criminal aliens. The legislation would require state and local law enforcement to notify the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) following the arrest of an illegal immigrant and detain an illegal immigrant if requested to do so by ICE. If the Bureau of Prisons receives a request from ICE to transfer an illegal immigrant to their custody, that request will take priority over the request from state and local agencies. Under this legislation, localities will be required...

    PHILADELPHIA — Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, running for president on a platform of keeping the government out of people’s business, took a deep breath when asked at a recent stop in Philadelphia whether he’d make addressing abortion a part of his campaign. “I didn’t run for office because of the social issues,” Paul answered. “It wasn’t what got me to leave my practice. I ran for office mainly because I became concerned that we’re going to destroy the country with debt.”(continued)

    Rand Paul’s presidential campaign wants to portray his fight to block any Patriot Act extension as a faceoff against President Barack Obama. But the Kentucky senator is waging an increasingly lonely battle. Some of his usual tea party allies are abandoning him. House Republican leaders are not pleased with his antics. And then there’s Paul’s feud with the senior senator from Kentucky and the most prominent Republican to endorse his presidential campaign, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Put it this way — there aren’t many times that Obama, Sens. Ted Cruz and Mike Lee, Speaker John A. Boehner, House Majority Leader...

    “Here in front of Independence Hall, I call for the president to obey the law,” Paul said when he took the microphone, as hundreds of his supporters shouted “President Paul! President Paul! President Paul!” outside Independence Hall after a separate event inside the Constitution Center across the street. The crowd went wild. “The court said last week that it is illegal to collect all of your phone records all of the time without a warrant with your name on it,” Paul said. “I call on the president today to immediately end the bulk collection of our phone records.”
