Rand Paul Back to Being Rand Paul

Posted on

downloadNearly 3 months after Rand Paul ended his Presidential campaign, the Libertarian leaning Senator is back to advocating for the principles he believes in.

A new Politico article highlights the failed campaign of Senator Paul, who tried to bring the brand of Libertarianism to a broader audience, which tended to anger hardcore Libertarians who felt that he shifted away from the core principles that define the Libertarian. .

During his ill-fated presidential run, Rand Paul tried to stretch his brand of libertarianism to appeal to a broader audience. He talked tougher about engaging the Islamic State, undercut diplomacy with Iran and called for cutting domestic programs to pay for more defense spending.

Now, nearly three months after he pulled the plug on a presidential campaign that peaked at least a year too soon, Paul has resumed his role as the Senate’s libertarian-minded contrarian. And the 53-year-old eye doctor appears quite content, relieved of any need to soft-pedal his ideas for a national audience and ready to settle in to the Senate for the long haul.

It is nice to see that Senator Paul has decided to come home to his roots and focus on fighting for Liberty in an institution controlled by big government, authoritarian figures.  He can be a champion for the rights of everyone in the Senate.  There is still time for the American people to get on board with leaders like Paul, who tend to say unpopular things from time to time, but eventually get proved right years later.  His father is the prime example of this, however he peaked too late, especially for his age.  Rand will be able to carry the mantle of Liberty for some time in the Senate, and with the way this election is going, the future might be bright for Senator Paul.
