The Libertarian Party: Rand Paul Is A TURNCOAT, TRAITOR & SELLOUT To HIS Fatherís Legacy.
This is NOT GOOD news for Willard!!....
This little flame should be fanned daily!! What did Scott Walker say ..." Divide & Conquer "?.....Exactly!
Maybe Poppa Paul will bailout his a$$.
" Little did Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) know that when he endorsed former Governor Mitt Romney (R-MA)ís bid for the presidency, that he would set the internet ablaze with the protests by angry supporters of his father, Texas Congressman Ron Paul. But, according to Politico, thatís exactly whatís happened. The freshman senator said on Thursday night that he supports Romney for president, even though his father has not officially withdrawn from the race. The move was seen by many as a signal that the younger Paul is willing to compromise and work with establishment Republicans.
Politico quoted a Republican strategist who commended the Kentucky senator on what is seen as a savvy career move, ďRandís endorsement of GOP nominee Mitt Romney clearly shows that in spite of those who try to marginalize him, he has keen set of political instincts and is very much aware that a successful national run will require more than just his fatherís loyal following.Ē
Members of that loyal following, however, are not as impressed.
The Libertarian Party issued a blistering statement through the partyís website, in which they called Rand a turncoat, a traitor to his fatherís legacy and a sellout.
ďNo true libertarian, no true friend of liberty, and no true blue Tea Partier could possibly even consider, much less actually endorse or approve of, the Father of Obamacare, Big Government tax and spender, Republican Mitt Romney,Ē the statement said.....
The blog BuzzFeed has collected what it calls, ďThe Most Overblown Reactions to Rand Paulís Mitt Romney EndorsementĒ in a post that rounds up screen grabs from Ron Paul supporters on Facebook and the social networking message board Reddit.

9. Like Father
Like son. As if Ron Paul is a Libertarian, there is a reason he has carried the R next to his name for over thirty years. Besides the fact Ron has boasted in his ads he is the "The man who stood by Reagan" makes me laugh.
