Trump Still Wins the Personality Contest

At the end of September, Public Discourse published a series of columns about voting for Trump. Or not. Mostly not. Mostly ewww.

Marco Rubio vs. Rand Paul

  In August 2008, as the world's leaders gathered in Beijing for the Olympic games, Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, hot-headed and erratic, made his gamble for greatness.

Ron Paul soon to announce decision about 2012

Rand Paul addresses Maddow appearance in unnoticed interview.

While Kentucky senatorial candidate Rand Paul pulled back from the national media after his Rachel Maddow Show appearance, he did allow one interview on Friday with local television station WHAS11.

‘You May Hope Anytime You Like’

  As a deeply worried citizen of a country that justly deserves my love, I watched last night's election results with a savage, manic glee. How satisfying it was to see the principled patriot Rand Paul crush the monied, establishment hacks, and to throw peanuts at the screen as the pro-abortion, warmongering lech Arlen Specter [...]

James Dobson pulls Kentucky endorsement and throws support to Rand Paul

Last week, Focus on the Family founder James Dobson endorsed candidate Trey Grayson in his primary race against Rand Paul for Kentucky's open U.S. Senate seat.
