says his campaign will soon ‘shock’ pollsters

By Tom Howell Jr. - The Washington Times - Sunday, December 20, 2015

Sen. Rand Paul questioned GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s commitment to limited government Sunday and said the business mogul’s stature has been artificially inflated by “American Idol”-type polls that kick up a flurry of media exposure.

Speaking on CNN’s “State of the Union,” the Kentucky Republican particularly noted Mr. Trump’s willingness to use eminent domain to secure someone else’s private property for his casino businesses.

“I think he’ll get wiped out in a general election,” said Mr. Paul, a libertarian who has lagged behind Mr. Trump and his fellow Republican senators, Marco Rubio of Florida and Ted Cruz of Texas, in polling on the 2016 race for the party’s nomination.

and I will tell you why...1st he has not accepted a penny from wall street, 2nd, someone is finally preaching peace (besides RP Sr.), 3rd, he has introduced a flurry of bills to show the American people he means business while calling out the phonies like M.R., J.B., D.T., T.C, H.C., and B.O. (yes, the white house does stink of many felonies)... Most folks I know will vote for MY dark horse R.P. Jr.!

To the new ship Liberty.  Nice to be aboard.  Lets chart a course for helping Rand get the nomination.  We are free here.

If you can't trust people with freedom, how can you trust people with power?

I'm up in Maine and am starting to get excited for the caucus in March. Hopefully we can get organized for Rand like we did the last time around for Ron in 2012.

The look on the establishment folks' faces when we took over the state convention in 2012 was something I'll never, ever forget!! :-)

Will do my best d!

Plan to contact Eric Brakey after the holidays, who is now the state senator in my district and completely owned it for Ron in organizing delegate support at the state Caucus/Convention in 2012.  Gotta catch up with him and get the scoop on plans for the next go-round for Rand.  Hopefully we pull off the same magic as last time!! :-)

Rands internal polling is showing big time strength I'm sure
