    The Principled Realism of Rand Paul
    On ISIS, the Kentucky senator steers a distinctive course between his party’s neoconservatives and its bellicose populists.
    By Conor Friedersdorf

    ...Then there’s Paul, who stood out Tuesday in large part because he alone opposed almost all of the worst ideas championed by his rivals.
    ...
    His position is nevertheless clear: Overreacting to terrorism can do more harm than terrorism itself.
    ...
    ...if you’re hoping for a nominee who champions civil liberties even in war time; opposes a proxy war with Russia; opposes “carpet-bombing,” war with Iran, or punishing innocent Muslims; and its temperamentally and ideologically unlikely to overreact to terrorism, then Paul is the GOP candidate for you.

    When/if Rand Paul declines to run for a 3rd term in the Senate, what will he do next? I would say a 2024 POTUS run is likely, but what else could happen? Could he run for KY Governor? Or will Rand be a two term senator and then just retire from active politics?

    When you take insurance policy, you pay $200 or $1000 per month as premium. Other way, you do not take insurance and with the same money ($200 or $1000/month) you can buy Gold. Gold is safe haven and an insurance policy itself. Gold price goes up +15% or more in a year. Actually, financial world is a giant scam when there is always Gold as the safest investment.
