Rand Paul, 2016 Republican front-runner

Rand Paul, 2016 Republican front-runner
By Chris Cillizza

The first eight-plus months of 2013 have convinced us of one thing: Rand Paul acts and the rest of the potential 2016 Republican presidential field reacts.

Hang in there, changes will come. The parties can't avoid simple math forever.

2016 SHOULD be a transitional year where the GOP STARTS making changes in earnest. Expecting those changes to be sweeping and in place in time for the election cycle is ...well, just ludicrous. You're off by 4 maybe 8 years on this one. (Assuming the GOP doesn't just decide to stay obsolete)

FYI - where Rove has kept his distance, Haley Barbour actually helped Rand Paul get elected in KY.

Write it down.
Why are they lunatic fringe? I would say left wingers like our current president fall into that category.

Because libertarians don't seem to trust or believe in government. The other parties trust and believe in government and other such irrationalities.

Truth. To the uneducated, read it....and understand why Kyle is right, and you will become part of the solution. Ignore it, and the Republican party may wander in the wilderness until 2024 or 2028.

As long as some states let non-republican registered voters vote in vichy regime primaries, guys like Rand Paul will never get the nomination.
