Default The War on Antiwar Republicans

Hawks have Reps. Walter Jones and Justin Amash on their hit list—and Sen. Rand Paul will be next.
Quote:
The main event, however, is going after Rand Paul. Paul is unlikely to face a viable primary challenger for his Senate seat, but he is considered a top-tier candidate for the Republican presidential nomination. “Can he win Iowa, yes. Can he win New Hampshire, yes. Can he win the nomination, maybe—and that’s scary,” an unnamed Mitt Romney bundler fretted to Time.

The Time piece reports that casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson “is likely to spend vast sums against Paul if he appears to be well positioned in the Republican primaries.” Another donor is quoted as saying, “The best thing that could happen is Ted Cruz and Rand Paul run and steal each other’s support, but if not, we’ll be ready to take Paul down.”

With a Republican-controlled Senate in sight, why spend money on a purge of antiwar Republicans? Because the party’s most rabid hawks don’t want any competition in setting GOP foreign policy.

There is going to be quite a battle in the GOP I just wonder if any of the Repubs are going to come out and stick up for Paul publicly. Make no doubt about it though the Neocons are going after him hard.

I am glad about this. Paul is sounding way too much like a liberal, I don't like my enemies having the same positions I do. They need to take him out and embarrass him and then drag his name through the mud along with his dad while we are at it.

The home of the Conservative movement was the anti-war platform from the beginning. This is a stellar book:

Like democrats, especially the liberal kind, are ever going to vote for a republican regardless of his/her stance on the subject.

Paul doesn’t just suggest the two-term Republican vice president was influenced by his tenure at Halliburton. He all but attributes the entire change in Bush 41 and Bush 43 policies towards the invasion and occupation of Iraq to Cheney’s personal enrichment by Halliburton. Had he gone ahead and accused Cheney of treason, it would have been entirely logical.
