    i don't really care which party a candidate is for anymore, it seems anymore there are pro gun democrats as well as republicans. i'm a registered republican but vote democratic sometimes, i try to look at all the issues and go with the best man or woman on those no matter what party they belong to. with that being said i too am voting for rand paul, if he does or at least tries to do what he says then he'll be a good senator.

    @Boomer & Unfettered Couldn't agree more! Unfortunately, KY is a closed primary state. I bit the bullet and registered Republican, though I voted with the Constitution Party last Nov.

    There are many Republicans in DC who are no friend of civil liberties!

    I'm a repbublican in a county thats all dems and if you don't reg. dem then you don't get to vote on anyone. The problem is in Muhlenberg County the same people keep making the same choices and 10 people make all the decisons. George Washington never wanted Parties in the first place.

    I was very pleased to see the Rand Paul support in this thread. I've had Rand Paul For Senate tables at gun shows all over our state, starting in March of 2009! Lately, they've been combo tables where I was also promoting the Kentucky Firearms Freedom Act, which Rand also supports, so it was a good fit.

    I was just as pleased to see the nonpartisan views expressed in this thread. I love the Republican Party platform, but they almost never follow it. Until recently, we've flipped and flopped between sucky Big Government Democrats and sucky Big Government Republicans. They've been two wings of the same bird. They're the Two Parties That Are One (TM). It's a bit too late to prevent the troubles that are coming, but We the People are finally awakening to the scam they've been running on us and we're voting in GOOD candidates to represent us... like Rand Paul!

    VOTE ON TUESDAY MAY 18th!

    My truck is the Randmobile. I have yard signs, 2X4 signs, 4X8 signs, and the stakes and lumber to put them up. Send me a PM with your contact info and I can get you what you want.

    I also have about 20 pounds of Rand general purpose fliers and 30 pounds of Rand pro-gun fliers.

    Rand Paul's is the only out-of-state campaign to which I've ever donated. I was in on several of the early money bombs. I don't remember exactly how much I gave, but probably about $400-500 total.

    I have a few quibbles with Rand, but nothing we couldn't discuss over the table and walk away after shaking hands, even if neither of us changed our views. (Specifics aren't important, because they don't involve guns.) He's not a carbon copy of his dad, but then I have some quibbles with his dad, too.

    I'm really looking forward to the chosen insider getting his butt stomped by this upstart, "not a member of 'the club'!" newcomer.

    I'm hoping that the 15-18 point lead that Rand has in every major poll will open up as the election approaches, and people get off the fence and start paying attention. When people look at both candidates, there really is no choice. You'd have to be a big supporter of the oligarchy of self appointed Big Government dolts who caused all the mess we're in to support Grayson. He's truly the establishment hack, and he represents business as usual in DC. One of his biggest contributors was AIG. Their DC lobbyist hosted a $1000 a plate fundraising dinner for Trey Grayson, where DC lobbyists line up at the trough to buy votes. AIG received an $85 billion bailout of our money directly from the US government, and they gave a lot of our money back to Grayson, to keep the money flowing and buy legislation favorable to them... usually at our expense.

    Please think of everyone you can imagine who is eligible to vote in the Republican primary in Kentucky, and call them and urge them to vote for Rand on Tuesday. Let's make this a landslide victory for liberty and We the People, and soundly repudiate big government RINO insiders.

    Yesterday's Public Policy Polling poll pretty much slams the door on recent Grayson campaign claims that Rand would be an easier opponent for Democrats in the fall. The poll revealed the non-intuitive result that people who identify themselves as liberal or moderate trend more toward Grayson, but those registered as Democrats will be significantly more inclined to vote for Rand in November against any Democratic candidate. It's the Blue Dog Democrat vote at work. The poll indicates that Rand is perceived as much more conservative, AND he's more electable in November.

    I'm sure Grayson's campaign manager, Nate Hodson, has another phantom numbers internal poll to dispute this data.

    After tomorrow, we won't have Dick Nixon to kick around any more, nor will we have Trey Grayson to kick around any more. Darth Grayson and Emperor McConnell can retreat to the Death Star and go back to plotting our doom. The more they squeeze their grip, the more star systems that slip through their fingers.

    I'm still hoping for a 20+ point landslide (Rand-slide?) that spanks Big Government neocons for decades of telling us they're conservative and voting otherwise, and taking our votes for granted, because, what are we gonna do? Vote for the Democrat? This lesser of two evils, lesser of two weasels voting must stop.

    It's looking like Rand Paul is going to win the Republican Senate Primary. Actually, AP is calling it a "landslide" victory over Grayson.

    Way to go, KY!

    Hopefully more states will send similar messages to Washington in November...

    You lucky sons of...

    Alright, alright. Who wants to trade a Rand Paul for a Herb Kohl?

    Anyone?

    I was at the victory party in Bowling Green. Sweet. Very festive.

    The crowd was interesting. It was mostly grassroots volunteers from all over the state, with some of Rand's local friends, and a smattering of the GOP faithful who looked like rats fleeing a sinking ship. Actually, more like a sinking ship that's on fire, with secondary explosions, that's being strafed by a swarm of enemy fighters with no other target of opportunity, floating in a sea of landmines with three incoming torpedoes. The establishment Republican Party is all but gone. It's the old guy behind the curtain bellowing about the Great and Powerful Oz.

    The media got it, for once. I guess it wasn't too subtle for them. There were seven trucks there sending out live feeds and numerous news outlets were recording video and audio for upload for the next day's news cycle, and they were all asking, "What does this landslide victory mean to the future of the Republican Party?" and "Why do you think the Republican Party leadership and heavy hitters endorsed Trey Grayson, yet Rand Paul won by such a large margin?"

    This isn't your father's Republican Party.

    The day before, a friend emailed and asked if I was going to the Republican Unity Party that Mitch McConnell is hosting in Frankfort on Saturday. I was there in the trenches with him when we were trying desperately to reform the Republican Party and not nominate Big Government, borrow-and-spend, amnesty-for-illegals, gun grabbers, and we were kicked to the curb and spit upon. I emailed him back and told him I'd be there with my message of party unity.

    What: 2010 Republican Unity Rally

    When: Saturday, May 22, 2010 11:30 AM

    Where:
    Mitch McConnell Building
    105 West Third Street
    Frankfort, KY 40602

    Rand won the primary and we're having a Republican Unity Rally! It's gonna be a HUGE public rally, and you're gonna want to be there! This event is going to receive national attention. Let's show the country that we have a message that unites us all. Freedom is popular!

    Rand shirts, Rand Fan buttons and stickers, LOTS of Rand signs, Randmobiles....

    We the People come out in support of our candidate, soon to be Kentucky's next US senator!

    Refreshments will be served.

    This is your opportunity to come out in support of a true pro-2A candidate. We'll have extra signs, Rand Fan stickers, etc. All you need to do is show up!


    This event is a couple of blocks down the hill from the Kentucky State Capitol, on the side opposite the Capitol Annex.

    I knew someone would ask about open carry.

    I didn't seen any gun buster signs when I was there a few months ago, and I was concealed carrying at the time. Others were too, and there were probably one or two openly carrying?

    It's the Republican headquarters. Seems like a good strategy would be to open carry and see if anyone asks you not to carry there. I doubt they will, and my pickup truck will be nearby if anyone needs to lock up a pistol.

    I know that in the crowd we're expecting, you won't be the only person carrying.

    Besides, this is a unity rally. It's all about the unity. Big tent time! I doubt the Republican Party of Kentucky is going to go out of their way to alienate gun owners when they are reaching out to very pro-2A Rand Paul supporters.

    Did you OC at the victory party?
