    Of course. But that takes nothing from my point. Winning a statewide race means, by definition, winning over the average voter. Kentucky isn't so red that a republican can't lose statewide. (For example Kentucky has a Democratic governor). Campaign structural issues are fixable and have nothing to do with the candidate's own ability to connect with voters. It's a matter of hiring the right people and letting them run it. Looking at this years GOP field, Nikki Haley simply got the "we don't want Trump" vote and won't be a factor in 2028. I'm not sure how much traction Desantis will get in 2028 on social "DEI" issues. Vivek won't be a factor because, let's face it, a significant portion of the GOP are like Laura Ingram and into (white) identity politics. I'm pretty sure Rand can hold his own against any of them.

    No I pay the $20 a month. This is output from the latest GPT-4o version. It allows you to upload files. It's great for summarizing content, editing pretty much any kind of document you want. You can also use it for OCR. For instance, I've downloaded PDF's of old scanned out of print books on Google Play Books, and it can read them and find stuff, or reprint it for you. It can also interpret images and do basic visual math problems. The biggest benefit of paid version is the size of the context window (I can upload large documents and have long conversations) and the usage limit (can use it all day long). ChatGPT does have weaknesses, but for what I mostly use it for, not a biggy. Grok isn't as good at research stuff, but it is really nice for searching real time news.

    I understand and your point is valid. All I'm doing is pointing out why the small government message can and does resonate with blue collar working class folks. And the polar bears falling over is a wisecrack, not meant to be serious. But they have moved past acid rain concerns, now it is sulfur oxides causing global warming and particulate pollution.

    Hmmm...sulfur is related to acid rain. But the polar bear problem is (supposedly) related to the carbon footprint. So burning more low sulfur fuel to go the same distance would seem to exacerbate the supposed problem. Again great points to be made at a Republican convention that the Teamster's president didn't make. You and others are arguing why the small government message should be palatable to blue collar workers. I'm pointing out that this guy brought a big government message to the RNC. To put it in perspective it would be like Cornel West talking to the RNC about the benefits of government enforced affirmative action and someone else saying "Great outreach. There are all sorts of other reasons (completely unrelated to what Cornel West said) why black people should vote republican!"

    Just some additional info: the reason diesel fuel is so expensive is not due entirely to crude prices, but rather to EPA mandates concerning sulfur content. EPA continues to ratchet down on the sulfur content in diesel fuel so that polar bears don't fall over or the three assed creek snail does not dry up. The problem with that is two fold: it is very expensive to "scrub" that sulfur in the refining process, and it gets exponentially more expensive for each fractional reduction. Second is that every time you do that, you remove potential energy in a given volume of fuel. I've been using and working on and maintaining diesel engines and equipment for damn near fifty years now and I can tell you the fuel today does not look or smell or burn or weigh the same as unscrubbed diesel from say 1984.

    That it 100% tangential to the point that I'm making. I'm talking about the speech that was given at the freaking RNC. And, technically Biden got big oil to turn up the tap making 2023 the record year for U.S. oil production ever. (A fact Biden doesn't talk about much because it goes against his whole "carbon footprint" argument). But I get it. Marxist language doesn't matter anymore as long as its said in support of the guy some of us are supporting at the moment.

    A trucker's largest expense, greater than the truck itself, is fuel cost. Diesel fuel prices exploded to almost $6 per gallon, under Biden's regime. In addition, regulatory costs, including EV truck mandates that Biden's regime put in place this year, will effectively shut down long haul trucking. Whatever the leftist running the Teamsters says, rank and file truckers have no reason to support Biden.

    I 100% disagree with "Rand is just a bad campaigner" argument. You don't get re-elected to the U.S. Senate if you can't connect with average voters. It's not like congress where you just have to win a district. Rand lost in 2016 to Trump because the Republican electorate was angry and Trump was the best at playing off that anger. There is nobody better than Trump at anger politics. If you watch the UFC, Jon Jones made former UFC champion Daniel Cormier look like he didn't even belong in the ring and DC was literally crying at the end of the fight. That doesn't mean he couldn't fight. No matter what happens this year, Donald Trump will not be running in 2028. (Thank God!) Can Rand Paul hold his own with the average GOP voter against a Nikki Haley or a Ron DeSantis? I think so. But that's the only fair metric to look at. Throw the 2016 presidential campaign into the garbage bin of history where it belongs. It's got no bearing on anything that happens going forward.

    Make sure you post your donation against Rand so I can counter balance it with a donation for him. He and Massie were the lone voices of reason during the COVID scamdemic. And term limiting your own best senators and congressmen when the other side isn't doing that serves absolutely no purpose. Ron Paul probably wasn't invited. I'm sure he could have been in the crowd but so freaking what? Massie did a good job moderating the alternative presidential debate. As far as 2028 is concerned, who knows what America will look like by then? The economy stands a good chance of imploding regardless of what the next president, Trump or Biden, does. If Trump is at the helm a Republican won't win again for a generation. If Biden is at the helm they'll just blame his dementia and the dems will recover after a couple of cycles.

    Invisible Man and RJB's race pivot aside, I didn't see a response to Matt's actual point. The head of the Teamster's union didn't say "Let's help the working man by doing away with the income tax." He didn't say "Let's help the working man by cutting property taxes." He didn't say 'Let's help the working man by protecting his right to natural gas stoves." He said "Let's help the working man....by new labor laws." Ummmm....okay. If he had said those same words at the DNC convention some of the same people praising this "outreach to working people" would be crying foul. So.....what exactly are the principles you're fighting for? I am sure Jimmy Dore (personally avowed socialist) loved the Teamsters boss's speech. He's been very bullish on Trump recently while still pushing for "Medicare For All." I love Jimmy Dore for his straight up honesty while at the same time disagreeing with his socialist positions. But okay. Socialism per se is no longer verboten. Got it.
