Libertarians Should Listen To Rand Paul, David Jolly Surges

Not much more can be said about Tuesday’s special election in Florida’s CD-13, other than that it will be one of the closest elections in years. Republican David Jolly has been surging of late, but many feel that if the Libertarian candidate in the race would have dropped out before his name would have been put onto the ballot, Jolly would now be enjoying a comfortable lead over Democrat Alex Sink.

What does it say when the Libertarian Party’s favorite politician, Senator Rand Paul, endorses and makes Robo-calls for Republican David Jolly, and not the Libertarian in the race?

Automated calls with Paul’s voice have been buzzing phones in Pinellas Country, which I am assuming are being made to take back support and pry away support from the Libertarian in the race.

Sink’s campaign has been dinged for her support of he unpopular and job-killing Obamacare, which will probably be the reason she loses this race, if she loses it.

Jolly will most likely win the race by a margin of 2-5 points. But then again, he may win it by a lot more, as polls have historically been proven to be off their mark.

We all saw what happened in the 2004 Presidential election between President Bush and John Kerry, where exit polls had Kerry crushing Bush.

    “What does it say when the Libertarian Party’s favorite politician”

    It says that Paul is attempting to curry favor with the ruling class slugs.
    He is being a realist. It seems he will run and practicality requires some service to those most unworthy republicans. (Note his endorsement of McConnell) He will dominate the intellectual discussion in that race mainly because the ruling class are out of ideas. They have been running on empty for many years now. That is unless you embrace capitulation as a political strategy. Paul, Cruz, and Lee are the fighters in that body, at least the fighters who fight For Us. The other ruling class elites on the hill fight against what they stand for and against us.

    So, if using them to gain the advantage works, it will, in the end, be a good strategy and a sweet revenge. I’ve cast my last vote for republican rinos in any event.

    Rand Paul made an oath to the GOP…to only support GOP candidates, no matter their RINO record. Unlike his dad, Rand sold his soul to RINO Republicans for a committee appointment. Plus Libertarians do not support or Like Rand Paul. If you look at their website and social media, writers and commentators; there is no support whatsoever for Rand Paul. He is a conservative, and conservatives tend to embrace and not change old ideas and habits. Libertarians are not conservatives, we are the only ones siding on the constitution, fighting for social and economic freedoms while Rand and the Dying GOP hold on to crony capitalistic, pro-war, anti personal liberty stance. But I see why you would write this. You realize the GOP can no longer win without libertarians as the elections have proven. Good luck with that!

    I am a Libertarian and I can’t stand Rand Paul. He’s not his father! On the other hand Lucas Overby is the one who is surging while David jolly is stuck in the mud. Rand Paul’s robo calls are designed to elect Alex Sink (it’s better to run against the crooked Dems in the next election than risk a Libertarian win, and Lucas Overby not only won the debates but will win the election tomorrow! Goodbye GOP!
