Rand Paul prevents World War III

• The Daily Caller

A few days ago, some Republican senators attempted to lay the groundwork for a shooting war with Russia. I wish I were exaggerating.

Last week, while most senators were focused on the important national issues of war funding and Americans’ constitutional liberties, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) seemed more concerned with the fate of a foreign country. Behind the scenes, Rubio moved to have a unanimous consent vote that would have hastened Georgia’s entry into NATO. The unanimous consent vote never happened because Senator Rand Paul single-handedly prevented it.

If Rand Paul would move slightly further in the direction of his father, he just might be the ideal person to take over when Ron Paul steps out of politics. Seems to me that Rand Paul is moving that direction some.

Of course, there would be a problem... at least, during the change-over period. We couldn't use the RP designation any longer. Nobody would know for sure which RP we were talking about.
