I would like to have heard some explanation why Rand Paul would have a lesser "burn rate."

I think the gist of that comment is some candidates are able to move the needle through campaigning, media appearances, and offering a platform voters like, and other candidates don't check those boxes and have to rely more heavily on blanket advertising to sway the voters. Rand falls more in the former category. Rand has a history of climbing polls without relying on massively outspending his opponent.


Peter Thiel would be awesome

Thiel gave several million dollars to a Ron Paul SuperPAC in 2012, so there's a pretty decent chance he could be in Rand's corner.

A lot of people have said that Rand won't get the same level of donor support Ron got becaue he's so impure. I would argue the opposite -- that we all might be very surprised just how many millions of dollars the Ron Paul fundraising machine can turn out for Rand, because Rand has a much more serious shot at winning the nomination.

There is a good argument that most of the money given to Ron was investment to build a ground swell for 2016, except for the true believers back in 2008. We educated our asses off, and it is being felt worldwide now.

The guy still talks about the internet outreach in terms of creating a good portal. Christie would obviously be pure astroturf, like Romney.
