Why we love Rand Paul and why it’s about time we start seriously start considering him for the GOP Presidential candidate for 2016 …
Fresh off his 13 hour Senate filibuster, Kentucky Conservative Senator Rand Paul lit up the room at CPAC as he reminded the Republican party about conservatism and the principles on which the GOP was founded upon. Much to the CPAC crowds approval, Rand Paul stated that “the GOP of old has grown stale and moss-covered.” A less than vale slap back at John McCain and the establishment Republicans that have all but destroyed and watered down the Republican party. It is a fight for the soul of the Republican party and it is time the fossils of old, John McCain, need to go away and make way for the new, principled party GOP.
“The GOP of old has grown stale and moss-covered,” Mr. Paul said. “The new GOP, the GOP that will win again, will need to embrace liberty in both the economic and personal sphere. If we are going to have a Republican Party that can win, liberty needs to be the backbone of the GOP.”
Like the Republican Party as a whole, the 8,000 conservative activists gathered at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, just outside the Capitol Beltway in Maryland, are debating which direction the GOP should go after a second consecutive presidential defeat.
Rand Paul Calls the GOP Like it Is … “the GOP of old has grown stale and moss-covered.”
The GOP of old has grown stale and moss-covered. I don’t think we need to name any names, do we? Our party is encumbered by an inconsistent approach to freedom. The new GOP will need to embrace liberty in both the economic and the personal sphere. If we’re going to have a Republican party that can win, liberty needs to be the backbone of the GOP. We must have a message that is broad, our vision must be broad, and that vision must be based on freedom.
Any body who references liberty as a core principle of the party gets my attention.
GOP light and a gutless party has delivered us John McCain and Mitt Romney. Enough said. How Romney could have lost to an incumbent president with an economy in shambles and an unpopular Obamacare is head scratching to say the least. Is it any wonder why Romney is considered a B-lister at this year’s CPAC? What, does the MSM think he is a superstar for the GOP? Sorry, those honors are given to Ted Cruz. Marco Rubio and Rand Paul.
