Future RLC Endorsement of Rand Paul??
- Assuming the National Board will eventually be considering the possibility
of endorsing Rand Paul for the U.S. Senate, I thought officers and members
would find the following interview with Rand informative:
Scott Horton Interviews Rand Paul
AntiWar.com - May 17th, 2009
Rand Paul, son of Rep. Ron Paul and 2010 Senatorial candidate, discusses
the war in Afghanistan, reducing corruption by making lobbying and bidding
on government contracts mutually exclusive, the excess federal authority
derived from the commerce clause, prosecutions of Bush administration officials
for war crimes and the need for withdrawal from Iraq.
Aside from some interesting inconsistencies with his father, Rand's
biggest impediment is just establishing himself as a credible candidate of *any*
office (having run for nothing). That may be mitigated by the possibility
of his father transferring residual funds from his Presidential campaign
coffers to Rand's campaign.
