Demand Congress Back Down On Privacy Intrusion

by Ron Paul.     The FBI tells us that its demand for a back door into the iPhone is all about fighting terrorism, and that it is essential to break in just this one time to find out more about the San Bernardino attack last December.

Joel Kurtinitis: Ted Cruz’s Quiet Coup In Iowa

The process of discovery.    I came home exhausted on Caucus night, just as I had many other nights in the year leading up to our first-in-the-nation nominating contest.

Stop Expecting Rand Paul To Be Ron Paul

by Eric July.    Libertarian elitism is something that truly annoys me, but it really shows itself when we have these Rand Paul vs. Ron Paul discussions during our current election cycle. Do not get me wrong, it isn’t completely absurd that someone would compare a man to his father. But if one is alluding to an expectation that Rand is supposed to be   ... MORE

Nick Gillespie: Ron Paul Endorses Rand

The "only one who is standing up for your liberty."  Should the son inherit the votes of the father?

In a letter that Paul campaign insiders say is "going out ... MORE

Brian Doherty: Rand Paul Vs The Libertarians

Is libertarian-ish good enough?      James Hohmann at Politico last week quotes me and some other people publicly associated with libertarianism to discuss where Rand Paul the presidential candidate stands in libertarian terms.

Has the ‘Libertarian Moment’ Finally Arrived?

Ron Paul: 'I Would Think' Rand Is Running In 2016

Timm.        Hey Dad, is Rand running for president in 2016? “I would think so, he wouldn’t be doing what he’s doing, but I haven’t had a conversation of what your plan is,” Paul said on Morning Joe. “He’s been pretty independent.” Kentucky’s Tea Party darling Sen. Rand Paul is already being floated as a potential 2016 candidate for the      ... MORE
