    "how dare he question the President."
    He does  have the right.

    However, he will never be the gop Presidential nominee if he doesn't fall in line with the neo-con friendly foreign policy.
    The business about "killing Americans on American soil" is really more aimed at the gun control issue and is meant to inflame the "patriots" who imagine themselves in armed revolt against the black President.

      Presidential run, it will be interesting to see how quickly he submits to the GOP establishment. I predict: damn quick. Ron Paul believes his malarky, but Rand strikes me as an opportunist first and last.

        libertarianism for him to give lip service that satisfies enough of the powerbrokers and neocons and to calculate a strategy to roll back our overseas footprint after he gets elected and gains power.
        I personally don't think he's as much a civil libertarian as he is a "pro-slavery" libertarian.
