“So I think there will be a long lasting influence,” continued the younger Paul, “I think he has encouraged a lot of people to participate, and what I keep telling them is don’t give up on the party because the Democratic Party has a lot of different interests and they all stay in the Democratic Party and I think they have influence.”
“I also think there are certain areas of the country where Republicans cannot win or don’t seem to be able to win – California, New England. Whereas a little different Republican, a libertarian Republican – a little bit less aggressive [on] foreign policy, maybe a little bit more socially tolerant and still fiscally conservative – I think could win in places like Maine, Massachusetts, places like that,” explained the younger Paul.
“Codifying the current spending levels – anything close, up or down – is nowhere close to what we need to do to balance the budget,” Paul said, adding that he thinks the budget plan developed by Rep. Paul, R-Wisconsin, and backed by my congressional Republicans does not balance the budget soon enough.
Rand Paul is right. We need to change the party from within and we continue to do that through local and state elections. I hear a lot of members of the Liberty Movement saying we ought to run third party, or vote for Gary Johnson. As much as I like Governor Johnson and his Libertarian views I don’t believe he can win the election. We need to continue bringing the Liberty Movement into the mainstream as we are doing.
