    Why bother I wonder?
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    Admittedly Paul is a much better politician than I ever will be, and his instincts have landed him in the Senate so I am not trying to dismiss his decision.

    What base is Paul reaching out to though? Liberals are not ever going to be fiscal conservatives and foreign policy doesn't seem like it's a hot issue right now. Guess we'll have to watch and see.

    I often ask the same question. Rand likes to go on MSNBC too. It seems like the more he reaches out to the left, the more they despise him. They might be somewhat polite when they talk to him, but they rip him apart later.

    It's almost amazing the hatred he gets from the left. They will blame anything and everything on him, even things he explicitly opposes. They hate honesty. They hate anyone who might oppose their big government, mommy-state. Telling them that you are OK with them smoking pot does not win any points, except maybe with beltway and left libertarians, who also turn on you every chance they get.

    Principled opposition to violation of civil rights might gain him some small amount of respect, but then they will also despise him at the same time for being principled, as so much of their agenda depends upon being unprincipled and deceptive.

    Perhaps its not political, but rather his Doctors instinct. Sometimes you have to tell people what they don't want to hear, even if they don't want to hear it.

    Granted, it may go a little way to put some new ideas into the leftist MSM echo chamber. But echo chambers don't like to hear anything from the outside.

    Does Colbert's audience skew older than the other late night talk shows? My mother-in-law is just nuts about Colbert.
    Partisan politics, misleading or emotional bill titles, and 4D chess theories are manifestations of the same lie—that the text of the Constitution, the text of legislation, and plain facts do not matter; what matters is what you want to believe. From this comes hypocrisy. And where hypocrisy thrives, virtue recedes. Without virtue, liberty dies. - Justin Amash, March 2018

    I would go on Colbert and make fun of liberals and get just as many of them to vote for me as a fiscal conservative would to go on there and be polite . This is why Rand is elected to represent the people of Kentucky and I represent Old Grand Dad 100 Proof .

    Trump has a unique set of skills. There's no doubt he knows how to win but I'm not convinced that other candidates should seek to imitate his overall style.

    When my kids would chatter that Einstein didn't finish school, implying therefore they didn't need to. I aways retorted, "You're not Einstein." Same type thing here.

    The Republican base and the moderates are with Trump. Rand currying favor with the far left will sink him in the future. It would be a tactical mistake.

    I wouldn't worry about that. Ever since trump became the nominee and president, Randal has always gone out of his way to avoid overt criticisms, leading conversations to where they agree and phrasing trumps positions into a positive direction. he esp. Isn't going to do it when one of the policy positions trump promoted last night was almost word for word from one of randals bills/amendments (re: Foreign aid)

    It has gotten to a point where I cannot even stand to hear his name or see his face. I do not know anyone that is not far left that likes that jackass at this point. His name is synonymous with mocking the far left and bad behavior of millennials.

    Simply appearing regardless with what will be said hopefully will not impact his support. I usually watch all of Rand's interviews but will pass on this one and will have to take this thread's word for it on how it goes. I just cannot bring myself to watch that $#@!.

    Exactly. John Oliver I expect it since it is a Progressive political show and at least his commentary has some substance at the start before he goes completely off the rails.

    If he just dialed it back to sticking with facts in attacking Trump from his Progressive view rather than hitting below the belt I would have more respect for him.
