He was one of my top tier preferred picks for the Republican nomination.

The media doesn't like him for the same reasons they don't like his dad: he has good ideas that run REALLY counter to the leftist statism most of the media pushes as well as counter to the ultra-conservatism and fear mongering of Fox News. Combine this with being rather anti-GOP donor money machine establishment means he's not getting any support from the party leaves him out in the cold.

So the media doesn't want his message to get out, he doesn't have any financial backers, and he doesn't have enough popularity and celebrity on his own to grab the spotlight like Trump did. That's what's wrong with him.


Fox can be really funny sometimes.

That's the second time they did that this week alone. It really shows how much they hate him.

No that would be Ron Paul.


Ron Paul was pretty much this generations Ross Perot. And way before Perot, there was Huey Long, the Louisiana Governor known for his populist and isolationist views, not to mention his sense of humor. Even though Long was a Democrat, President FDR had little respect for him, seeing him as a rabel rouser.

I did the calculations, and that was a long time ago though.

Props if you got the first one.

I love how the the conservatives blame liberals for conservatives not living Rand Paul. Just like Sarah Palin blaming Obama because her son is an alcoholic, domestic abuser who got kicked out of the army, conservatives never take responsibility for anything. It's all about blaming someone else.

The Republican base hates Rand Paul because he doesn't want to commit genocide in the Middle East. But he's not isolationist enough for his father's merry band of tinfoil-hat wearing, conspiracy believing, libertarian nut cases.
