Rand endorsed Romney for president on Saturday. But he denied there was any deal between his father, who is still technically running for the GOP nomination, and Romney. “No, no real secret deal,” he said. “I always tell people, if there’s a secret deal, it’s so secret that I don’t know about it. But I would say that my dad’s supporters are very, very independent. Many conservatives and libertarians are independent people. And I don’t pretend to speak for them. They make up their own minds. Some of them might be influenced to hear the governor out, listen to the areas of common interest. They’re not going to agree with everything Governor Romney stands for.”


Oh please, deals are what politics is all about in America. When big money is at stake within the corporataracy, you can rest assured that power is brokered by many behind the curtains.

I wouldn't expect Rand to say anything else. Truth is a rare commodity in DC.

I'm not sure what the fuss is about. Who cares who Rand Paul endorses...? Not like the constitutionalist who support his father, not because his name but what he says, are going to say good enough for me and come right over.

Rand is not Ron...

If you would have read the article....apparently even Ron is not Ron!

The notion that Ron Paul would be Romney's veep is, to be frank, moronic. A veep in these modern times is never a political opposite, as Paul is to Romney. He or she is generally selected because they are seen as so non-threatening and milquetoast so as to be no threat to the POTUS. (ex: Biden, gore, quale, even Cheney was considered more moderate,politically speaking than Bush). They are, if anything, an insurance policy against impeachment, assassination, etc)

Paul is fighting for a speaking slot at the RNC convention in Tampa. He is NOT shooting for veep, nor will he be asked.

Can you think of anyone more frightening to the established powers or a better insurance policy for Mitt than Ron Paul? Perhaps the thought of Paul as VP is just a little TOO frightening for them, in case of unforeseen circumstances. Politically speaking I think Paul in that slot would bring voters to Romney, though certainly not all of us would jump on that bandwagon even with Ron in the rhythm section.

OP - Do you have a link for your quote?

But then Romney would be giving a public platform to someone calling much of his policies 'unconstitutional'.

Pretty unlikely.

Rand Paul is not an important person (no disrespect intended) and his father's importance will NOT be measured by his political acumen. In fact, over time, people shall remember Ron Paul for his economic writings not for his failed political campaigns.

It doesn't really matter what either Paul does politically. Perhaps that's not clear now, though it will be.

Right now, admittedly, it is giving freedom's enemies a good deal to celebrate. Even the alternative media "monopoly-paper money crowd" is engaged in celebration. As more and more of various pre-war national socialist platforms are apparently adopted by elements of the alternative media, Rand is being positioned as a whipping boy for a populist vision.

I don't endorse Rand Paul's endorsement of Mitt Romney. And if Ron Paul gave it his blessing, I don't bless that either. But here is the thing: Ron Paul has proven an effective and valuable educator for free market thinking. No doubt he will continue to do that and go down in history for the monetary education he has provided at a critical time.

That is his legacy. That was why he got in the race. He said as much long ago.

He struggled as a non-entity for decades. He was derided as a kook and a bumbling extremist. His colleagues such as Murray Rothbard and Lew Rockwell were equally derided, when they were mentioned at all. They had no power and no publicity.
