Prison Planet.com » Infowars.com Readers Overwhelmingly Reject Rand Paul’s Romney Endorsement
…..The Libertarian Party wasted little time excoriating Paul: “No 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,” a statement exclaimed.
Libertarians and other supporters who assumed Rand would reflect the philosophy of his father were outraged by the obvious betrayal and complained that “many of his fund-raising appeals were sent to the donors and supporters of his father…. designed to convince Ron’s supporters that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. That Rand was, like his legendary father, a steadfast champion of liberty.”
Paul told Peter Schiff in a radio interview that his endorsement was strictly political. “In order for him to get support during his Senate bid in 2010, Paul had to convince his potential backers that he was a Republican and would back the GOP presidential nominee, which his father did not do in 2008.
Paul also notes, though not in these words, that it’s a little absurd to cast him aside as a traitor when he is part of the liberty movement and push our issues in the Senate,” writes Jason Pye for United Liberty…………
