The decision for me was one of ease. Rand Paul is not a Republican. Rand Paul is not a National Defense Conservative. Rand Paul is a Libertarian who will subvert our agenda on a regular basis - worse than Senator McCain or Senator Graham could dream of. I wish I could say the same for fellow Conservatives; but a full blown war has erupted.
Sarah Palin and Erick Erickson have endorsed Rand Paul for Senate, while Dick Cheney and Dan Riehl have endorsed Trey Grayson for Senate, with millions of vulnerable Conservatives sitting on the sidelines, unaware and unsure as to which candidate is deserving of their support. We're looking at a Senatorial race that could define our movement for the present and future elections.
We must look at this election from Conservative lenses instead of Establishment lenses, because Republicans can be downright Conservative, and still be the favored candidate of the Republican Establishment, without being apart of a grand scheme to neutralize Conservatism as we know it.
When one looks at this election through Conservative lenses, instead of listening to Sarah Palin or Erick Erickson attack the "Establishment" choice, the candidate of choice becomes apparent. Rand Paul is a Libertarian who will mimic his father, and will pain Senate Republicans on every possible issue, which includes National Defense - Paul blames America for September eleventh and surrounds himself with Libertarian nut jobs who oppose our Defense.
Trey Grayson has an accomplished record as Secretary of State in Kentucky, and unlike Rand Paul, Grayson has received the Kentuckian donations, and Grayson has a Conservative record that he can point to, once again, unlike Rand Paul. Though, if we want a glimpse into what Rand Paul might represent in the Senate; look at his fathers record.
With all that has been written on this election, there is just one more question for Conservatives across Kentucky and the United States: Do we want a candidate that will sacrifice our National Defense for debt reductions and the legalization of pot, or do we want a candidate that will stand strong with our National Defense, regardless of what other issues are being discussed?
Will we stand against or for National Defense? That's the question of the month when examining the Paul - Grayson Republican primary. I hope it's the latter, because we cannot afford another liberaltarian on National Defense related issues, the Senate has enough Democrats already.
