Hard to believe that this is a controversial idea, but I’m sure the NY Times will rail against it tomorrow.

Rand Paul gave a rousing 18 minute address to the assembled CPAC audience today that touched on this and a number of other themes, including returning our nation to its founding principles. Definitely worth the time it takes to listen to what might be the opening speech of the 2016 campaign.

    We must stand for something so powerful and so popular that it brings together people from the left and the right and the middle.

    yeah, well the left doesn’t stand for anything like liberty or freedom so forget about bringing us together.

    We have to defeat them.

    @ Bumr50:

    Rand Paul will be called an anti-Semite for this by the McCain gang.

    Lobo, I am moving this to special report. This deserves to be on the front page.

    He wants to delete the Dept of Education. Install a flat tax of 17 percent. And devolve power and money back into the states from the feds.

    Egypt’s death spiral is now scaring off even its closest friends. Last year, Qatar give an Egypt in crisis $5 billion in aid money. But Qatar won’t help Egypt anymore, according to the FT. Qatar’s decision comes as Egypt continues its downward spiral:

    Shortages of diesel in recent weeks have already created long queues in filling stations, fraying tempers and sparking anger, while villagers frequently cut roads and railway lines over such grievances as water cuts and irregular gas supplies.

    The country’s toxic political atmosphere, with fractious leaders intent on undermining each other, could also fan the flames of popular fury and speed up a descent into chaos.

    Greta just had Gingrich on -- Mike Lee is on now (impressive) -- next up Allen West

    The GOP has a pretty strong bench

    Well, I use the generic “GOP” when I’m describing those members of the “establishment” that represent the GOP in the arena of public perception.

    To the mostly apolitical layperson that doesn’t follow politics, John McCain IS the GOP. Joe Scarborough IS the GOP. Lindsey Graham IS the GOP. Mitt Romney IS the GOP. George Will IS the GOP. George Will IS the GOP. George W. Bush IS the GOP. Karl Rove IS the GOP.

    Until we can change that perception by somehow delineating “us” from “them” in the public arena, they will continue to BE the GOP to a large percentage of the electorate.

    I’m afraid that they’re not on the verge of suicide.
