Rand Paul: ‘Not Good Enough To Elect The Lesser Of Two Evils’

rand paul

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) brought the house down during his CPAC 2014 speech, bringing a message that speaks to the ensuing battle for the heart and soul of the Republican Party. In the debate over whether or not the conservative base should primary establishment incumbents, Paul made no bones about staking out his position.

“You might think I’m talking about electing Republicans; I’m not. “I’m talking about electing friends of liberty,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said to a packed crowd at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday.

“It’s not good enough to elect the lesser of two evils,” he added.

Senator Rand Paul, himself, owes his seat to the 2010 Tea Party uprising, defeating Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s  hand-picked candidate of choice. Ironically, he is supporting his fellow Kentucky delegate in his own primary versus another conservative challenge from Matt Bevin, who is back by the Senate Conservatives Fund and other heavyweights.

Still, no one questions Paul’s conservative credentials, which are well-established by his inspirational filibuster of Obama nominee John Brennan in protest of drone strikes on American citizens. Paul also railed against the NSA spying program during his speech, a program he has been a leading voice of opposition against.

Paul is suing the Obama administration in what may just turn out to be the largest civil action lawsuit in American history.
