The Iowa caucuses are still 284 days away, but Republicans now have a second candidate for President, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky. Labeling himself a conservative, Paul is primarily known as being the son of former Congressman Ron Paul, an ardent libertarian with a history of making many controversial statements and endorsements. Sen. Paul has retained many of his father’s followers, but it seems that Sen. Paul has also tried to distance himself from the elder Paul.
It’s become a delicate balancing act for Sen. Paul, as he has to grow his base by appealing to more traditional conservatives while still appeasing the libertarian minority.
There’s very little doubt as to where Ron Paul stands on the issues. He’s blamed the U.S. as the reason for the attacks on September 11, 2001. He stated that he would not have ordered the raid to kill Osama Bin Laden. He’s also advocated the legalization of prostitution and heroin. To top things off, he’s been known to mingle with neo-Confederates, even going so far as to praise the candidacy of David Duke. Ron Paul the father may not be the candidate this time around, but Rand Paul the son is, and many are asking, does the apple fall far from the tree?
