Brace Yourself

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is announcing what everyone has known for a long time, namely that he is running for President in 2016. If I am going to vote at all in the next cycle, Senator Paul is about the only one I would vote for. His libertarian message is a welcome breath of fresh(er) air amid the twin statist parties of Big Government Via Income Redistribution and Big Government Via Endless War And Military Spending. No one else in either party is talking about the issues of liberty he does and being one of the few to question American interventionist foreign policy is enough to set him apart.

Of course running for President often changes a man's political positions so we will see and I still place zero trust in politicians to actually do what  they say but you never know. I do know this, many in the pro-war Republican establishment hate and fear Senator Paul and will do everything in their power to keep him from the nomination, even if that means handing the White House to Hillary Clinton. Never underestimate the lust for power.

This being 2016 I of course had to make a meme to celebrate this moment.
