and speaking of 2024...
this was written before the elections, before the riot, etc. and the events since then have solidified Paul as the likely Trump successor. Ted Cruz has been diminished, Pence is lucky to still be breathing, and Haley hasn't done anything to elevate her credentials.
I like Randal Paul (the name is Randal, btw, for those that harp about the man being named after Ayn Rand). He is pretty much right on the issues, has a solid family life, and seems to have a vested interest in the future of the USA. My kind of guy.
I voted for rand not trump in the 2016 primary, but the truth is had rand been president he would have gotten the same treatment as trump and he would have folded.
Rand Paul, like his Dad once was, is the Cassandra of congress.
And much like the original Cassandra of Greek mythology fame, Senator Paul is also condemned to spend his entire life foretelling the future, but then being ignored by all who hear him.
No one really wants to hear the truth, especially when the times are so good and even more promised “stimmy checks” are on the way.
God bless America, I suppose. At least until our $27 trillion (and still counting) party is finally over.
