EARLY RON PAUL BACKER LENDS SUPPORT TO RAND PAUL’S CAMPAIGN
|| By FITSNEWS || The first major South Carolina political figure to endorse Ron Paul in 2012 has lent his support to Rand Paul this go-round.
S.C. Senator Tom Davis – one of the few genuinely pro-freedom, pro-free market lawmakers in the S.C. General Assembly – endorsed the younger Paul’s presidential bid at a press event in Charleston, S.C.
Davis described Paul as “a man who wants to make the Republican Party stronger, viable, inclusive.”
“He has set forth a clearer rationale for a presidential bid than anyone else – a rationale based on an idea that’s as old as America itself – that in our country, government’s job is to secure the blessings of individual liberty,” Davis said.
Invoking the “defeat the Washington machine, unleash the American dream” mantra that has become the modus operandi of the Paul campaign, Davis said Paul is the only GOP candidate with a proven record of defending freedom.
“Defeat the Washington machine and unleash the American dream: That pretty much sums it up, doesn’t it?” Davis said. “Make no mistake – there are very real similarities between the British tyranny our Founding Fathers rejected in 1776 and the modern-day Leviathan in Washington D.C. that Rand Paul rejects today. It is now our turn to stand with Rand, to stand for individual liberty.”
Davis’ endorsement matters. He remains wildly popular with Tea Partiers in the Palmetto State- and has been on the forefront of many of the issues this website is passionate about.
This website followed Davis’ lead and endorsed Ron Paul in 2012 … of course we’ve pointed out on several occasions (including this week) just how far the apple fell from the tree when it comes to the younger Paul’s consistent advancement of his father’s uncompromising agenda.
In other words while we’re very eager to hear what Rand Paul has to say – especially on the tax and spending front – we’re not as eager as Davis to go ahead and jump in bed with him.
I’m just glad he’s standing, and not hunched over a bar in Five Points.
Give him time.
Thank God Rand is not the mitkob his dad is.
What in the heck is a “mitkob?” Doesn’t sound good…
LMAO, I didn’t time to ask at the time, but wonder the same thing when I read it. I can’t possibly be good.
It has a great ring to it, just like I knew I liked the term of endearment “fuckstick” the first time I heard it fall from a drill sergeant’s lips when I hopped off of the bus at basic (I didn’t know exactly what a “fuckstick” was, but I gathered from the gentleman’s tone that I didn’t impress him very much). Once I figure out just how bad “mitkob” is, I may have to add it to the ol’ repertoire.
LMAO – well when you do figure it out, pls save me some time Googling and post it for all to see the definition ;)
I will, but Googling, Urban Dictionary, and the entire interwebs haven’t been much help so far!
<——- dying laughing. Exactly why I said, when you figure it out, let us know!
This endorsement strikes as a non-event.
Where does his bud, Sanford stand…with the highest bidder? (well in his dreams, anyway)
It seems Sanford is going through the motions but he is holding out for the time being. If he chooses wrong, he can always blame Jenny.
Uh, I’m confused here, isn’t this guy affiliated with Mark Sanford, the guy that FISTNews recently described as corrupt? Davis also endorsed Rand’s papa for President twice…yea…nothing will examine if Dr. Paul knew of Mark Sanford’s corruption…bwahahaha!
“nothing will examine if Dr. Paul knew of Mark Sanford’s corruption”
Notwithstanding the strange sentence, you have managed to touch on the one thing that REALLY pissed me off about Ron Paul-and I was a supporter of his.
It was Ron Paul’s “payback” endorsement because of Sanford’s earlier endorsement in the GOP Presidential primary.
Dirty, dirty, dirty….really f’ing bothersome. After all of Sanford’s dirtbag antics too-Paul comes swooping in with his endorsement to help further fuck the residents of SC.
So even though most of your rants are irrational Paul h8terade, you absolutely nailed that one.
Didn’t Tom Davis vote for Toal? He had the opportunity to show he had some “substance” and he failed miserably. Talks a good game though!
I like Tom Davis, but I don’t support his candidates. He does a similar thing Ron Paul does, look how much money goes to his district – no wonder they love him :)
Tom Davis went to the dark side when he sold out and supported Jean Toal – and took a couple of his low country House members with him. Another political whore.
