Don't worry about Ron's Libertarian positions bleeding into his sons campaign, worry about his record on racial views in this country--particularly his news letter that he made millions off of. Even though Rand is not his father, look for Democrats to dig up any bone they can to try and ruin him.
I'm not concerned about Ron's reputation hurting Rand's, I'm concerned about how Rand would govern if he were elected. Right now, I haven't seen anything I don't like about him, but I don't really know what his foreign policy position is. A lot of that stuff comes out in the debates, when obscure comments and voting records are brought to light by the other candidates.

It's so amusing how you on the left always refer to your opinions as "proof."
If every Republican won next election, I would still be supporting fairer and honest elections.
Here's what goes on behind closed doors you puppet:
"Hey, the Republicans are trying to get this voter-id thing going on. What do we do? The people that are on these millions of social programs are not going to get their lazy butt off the chair and get a voter ID!!!"
"Our people are puppets. We say--they do, and they do without even thinking about it. We'll just say it's discriminating particularly to the blacks."
"This has nothing to do with the blacks or any particular group for that matter."
"I know that. But they won't ask any questions. They will just parrot anything we say, trust me."
You got too much time in that truck, you are a fricking delusional screwball. You're making up stories in that small brained mind of yours. RUSH, need I say more.

Whatever D'Souza did to break the law absolutely pales in comparison to Obama's years of lies and illegal activities. But I bet you'd vote for him again.

First off, the typical Libertarian position is to not get involved in any conflict unless it's a direct threat to the US. Again, one of my major disagreements with the Libertarian party. Secondly is that we no longer hear what candidates believe in debates.
What these people do is hire so-called professionals; coaches, and that's what screws up these debates because we never get to hear how the candidate feels--only what their coach tells them to say.
I'm not sure if Rand has libertarian views or not. His father runs as a republican, but he's definitely a libertarian in principle. At any rate, if Rand runs, it'll all come out in the wash. The other candidates will make sure it does.

Ron had a "blame America" mentality, and he basically felt that our enemies were justified in attacking us. It's his right to believe that, but I don't want someone like him in charge of the country again. Eight years of Obama will have been enough.

Which would make you a neoconservative, a variant that developed in the 1980s. Non-intervention was an earlier conservative ideal, the one I grew up with.

"Rathbun (2008) compares three separate themes in conservative policies since the 1980s: conservatism, neoconservatism, and isolationism. These approaches are similar in that they all invoked the mantle of "realism" and pursued foreign policy goals designed to promote national interests. Conservatives, however, were the only group that was "realist" in the academic sense in that they defined the national interest narrowly, strove for balances of power internationally, viewed international relations as amoral, and especially valued sovereignty. By contrast, neoconservatives based their foreign policy on nationalism, and isolationists sought to minimize any involvement in foreign affairs and raise new barriers to immigration. Former Republican Congressman Ron Paul favored a return to the non-interventionist policies of Thomas Jefferson and frequently opposed military intervention in countries like Iran and Iraq."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_isolati...

The Republicans tried to prevent our entry into World War II.(Maybe you already know this, but I want you to note how much the Republican party has changed, just in my lifetime.)

"Modern Republican isolationism began with the 1919 battle over joining the League of Nations, when Senate Republicans, led by so-called Irreconcilables like William Borah of Idaho, killed the deal -- even though without American guidance, European affairs were doomed to explode again. A pattern emerged, as liberal Democrats, along with Northeastern Republicans, wanted America to actively manage world affairs, while the Republicans' powerful Midwestern and Western factions viewed cooperative international ventures as dangerously entangling alliances.

The isolationists had complex motives: Congressional vigilance against presidential encroachments on their constitutional powers; a small-town obsession with balanced budgets; and conspiratorial suspicions of foreigners, financiers and -- in the case of anti-Semites like Charles A. Lindbergh -- Jews. Naturally, isolationism thrived among Congressional Republicans when a Democrat held the White House -- as it does again today -- but it continued through the Coolidge and Hoover years, too.

Later, Republicans resisted Franklin D. Roosevelt's efforts to gird the nation for war, passing legislation that limited rearmament and support for European allies. Only the bombing of Pearl Harbor banished the isolationists to the margins.

Some thought World War II, which proved the need for American leadership, would kill off isolationism. Yet with Harry S. Truman as president and the Republicans running Congress after 1946, members of the party's Midwestern faction -- led by Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio -- vainly fought efforts to promote collective security, including NATO and the Marshall Plan."

Let me explain this to you again:
The average temperature here in Cleveland is 45 degrees. That means if we had high temperatures of 25 degrees the last seven days, and temperature of 65 degrees in the next seven days, we hit our normal high for the combination of the two weeks.
As we all know, we've been way below average most of this winter. That's because we've had way more days below average than above.
Canadian cold fronts are nothing new, and no global scientist invented it either. They have been happening long before man got here and will continue long after the last man is off of this planet. The same holds true with southern warm fronts.
That's nice of you to repeat oil lobby propaganda but you might want to save your sales pitch for the overwhelming majority of the scientific community that disagrees with the Koch Brothers...oops, I mean you.

Not every president can gleefully send our troops off to die in a bogus war like your "Mission Accomplished" buddy did. Funny how many Americans despise Bush to this day and we didn't even have corporations spending millions of dollars to tell us what to think. Of course, we didn't just hate Bush because of the color of his skin either. Hey, how's that "outrage" over the affordable care act doing you? We all can see that it's obviously the end of the civilized world, just like your camp predicted. Aaaah ha ha ha ha ha! Look out! It's the Obamacare death panels!

At least a little extreme from my perspective. Once again, "Obama" would never have gotten Bin Laden if not for the programs that Bush established. Haliburton was & is the ONLY company in the free world that could fulfill the tasks that were needed.
That said, I do NOT believe that we belonged in Iraq, at least not with significant support of others. Saddam was a disgusting warring despot & should have been disposed of but that was not for the U.S. to lead even tho he had WMD's that he used in Iran, Kuwait & against his own Kurdish citizens. Firing scuds at Israel & killing domestic political prisoners & using children for shields.
Afganhastan may be a worse scenerio. It has never been successfully conquered throughout history. Al Quida is still there & pressing for any & every advantage to subject everyone that is in their way. The best way to do that would be to support the governments of the countries that they operate from. NOT to do the jobs of those governments.
