I think you GREATLY underestimate Rand Paul's appeal across every demographic.
I'm pretty sure saying you'd vote against civil rights is going to lose you one, maybe two votes beyond MJ readers. Supporting Todd Akin to the bitter end might lose you a couple more.
I know the guy you really want:
Ted Cruz, aka Republican Obama.
Son of a Cuban immigrant.
He frequently name-drops Ron Paul and Milton Friedman in campaign speeches.
He started early. His father sent him to a private, right-wing school, where teachers assigned books from Ludwig von Mises, Frédéric Bastiat and Murray Rothbard. He was the star student.
Cruz went on to Princeton, where he amassed countless trophies on the debate team while crushing liberal adversaries, then went on to Harvard Law, where he worked on expanding the ideas of the founder's Natural Law.
If the GOP wants to double-down on the tea party, Cruz is their man.
