Fun facts about Rand Paul:

1. Has no problem with sanctioning Iran over a non-existent nuclear weapons program
2. Has no problem trying the "thugs" at Guantanamo and keeping the place open
3. Was against building a mosque near the site of the 9/11 attacks, despite supposedly being an advocate for property rights
4. Has held meetings with neoconservatives like William Kristol
5. Is cool with stricter screening procedures via the TSA for people coming back from foreign countries
6. Endorsed Mitt Romney in 2012. Remember, Romney was a big fan of Obama's murderous drone program that Rand now criticizes.

So, in other words he's electable.

That literally made me laugh. I think the straw poll is mostly meaningless. But still it improves my hopes for Rand Paul in 2016, or Marco Rubio.

2% difference? Rubio should throw in the towel.

Yes, because geopolitics is a statist conspiracy,

2. Has no problem trying the "thugs" at Guantanamo and keeping the place open

So, people have a right to not be tortured even if it allows other people to die?

3. Was against building a mosque near the site of the 9/11 attacks, despite supposedly being an advocate for property rights

Ah, I see. "Property rights," yes, that's what our world should revolve around.

4. Has held meetings with neoconservatives like William Kristol

The NWO have turned him!

5. Is cool with stricter screening procedures via the TSA for people coming back from foreign countries

Now people have a right to privacy even if it kills people. It's clear why the world should work exactly the way you want it to.

6. Endorsed Mitt Romney in 2012. Remember, Romney was a big fan of Obama's murderous drone program that Rand now criticizes.
