Ron Paul Stands up for Rand Paul, Says He’s the “Only One” Fighting for the Entire Bill of Rights

 

Former Texas representative and presidential candidate Ron Paul (R-TX) is doing his best to help get his son elected President. In a recent message on Twitter, Congressman Paul urged his fans and followers to lend their support to the younger Paul’s campaign for the White House.

“Rand Can’t do it alone. You are part of the best grassroots organization out there. You’re his secret weapon. So please dig deep today and throughout the end-of-the-year money bomb to help Rand fully fund these grassroots operations.

I know I can count on you. Rand is the only candidate with a sane foreign policy, the only one fighting for the entire Bill of Rights, and he is leading the fight against the Federal Reserve. He can do it if we step up to the plate and help him.

I am and I hope you will too.”

Rand Paul has toiled in the middle-bottom of the GOP presidential pack for the last few months, and the surge many of his supporters had hoped for has never appeared. There is still time for a resurgence, but it would take a massive upheaval the likes of which we’ve not seen in the political world for quite some time. Ron Paul’s insertion into the race seems like a last ditch effort for momentum as the elder Paul’s focus on foreign policy won’t be winning his son any new supporters in the GOP.

For his part, Rand recently explained that he sees good things for the future of America and libertarianism.

I remember in the 1980s when my dad ran as the Libertarian Party candidate, the word “libertarian” was scary to people. Now I think it’s the opposite. I meet people all the time who are liberals but say, “you know what I’m a little libertarian on this issue and that issue” or I meet conservatives who say, “you know I’m a little libertarian.” So I think it’s seen as a badge of honor now and actually a term people don’t want to run away from.
