“I think the rumors of my demise are somewhat exaggerated, to say the least,” Paul said Sunday on Fox News’ “Media Buzz.”
His paltry $2.5 million third quarter fundraising haul had sparked expectations that Paul might soon drop out. But he insisted Sunday that he doesn’t need much money to keep up his campaign efforts.
“We run a tight ship around here,” Paul said. “We plan on being in for the long hall, and I think ultimately celebrity will sort of filter out of this.”
Paul also took a shot at Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, one of his GOP rivals for the 2016 presidential nomination.
Five days earlier, he’d said Cruz is “pretty much done for” in the Senate because he’s failed to form personal relationships with his colleagues. Paul repeated that criticism Sunday.
“I think we do have different styles. My style is when I disagree with someone, not to call them a name or be very inflammatory,” Paul said.
“I can be very strong in what I believe in and I’m willing to stand up for that,” he said. “But even (Senate Democratic leader) Harry Reid — who’s on the opposite side — I have pretty good relations with him, even though he’s a Democrat, and I wouldn’t call him a liar or I wouldn’t call him dishonest because I don’t think that furthers the debate, even with people you disagree with.”
Here is the original post:
Rand Paul says he’s not dropping out of 2016 race …
Randal Howard “Rand” Paul (born January 7, 1963) is the much celebrated son of the contemporary Maximus, the Savior of Rome: Sire Ron Paul. He was born in a crib surrounded by a bull and a donkey in Lake Jackson, Texas. Until 2010, he could refer to himself as being a respectable ophthalmologist before heeding a call to cross the Rubicon in a virtuous attempt to cleanse the putrid, scum-ridden Augean stables: the American Congress.
He is also spearheading the Coffee Party movement, a group of exasperated citizens who chose that name when they woke the hell up from their slumber and decided to stand up against their tax money laundering government.
The young Rand Paul was soon educated to shell himself from the perverse ways of the world by his dad, Congressman Ron Paul who severely admonished him not to talk to creepy looking strangers or even worse, to any of his politician colleagues, be them known or not. Ron wanted to bestow upon young Rand the values of honesty, respect and straightforwardness, all qualities he was the only one to call his in Congress for he saw that the green lad had the politician fiber that his father bore.
During little school, the small Rand worked as a passionate helper to his father’s career, delivering flyers to his constituents and parcel bombs to his corrupted opponents. He also went to Ron’s adversaries’ meetings to offer free sweets, delighting the crowd in attendance who were exhilarated with joy at such a polite little boy. Little did they know Rand had filled the candies with laxatives so that the room went as empty as the Sahara within minutes, effectively preventing the wannabe Bilderberger from regurgitating his malicious lies on the audience. The little scallywag sometimes went so far as barricading the restrooms for innocent fun.
Like a modern day Paladin, Rand took up sword and shield and ventured into the populace’s sworn enemy’s lair in an effort to bring back equality and justice to the corrupted land. At the culmination of the 2010 Senate elections, he slayed his first unholy beast: candidate con artist Jack Conway, who vainly tried to usurp the Kentucky throne and subdue his subjects to more government control and tyranny. After a grueling battle, which saw both of the antagonists deplete their Magic Points, Rand delivered a crushing Limit Break move: the Evil Conjuror, which dispatched his opponent instantly.
“…right after I was abducted by aliens and forced to do LSD!”
Realizing that Rand would not do the military industrial complex any favor by striving to stop the illegitimate wars, the corrupted establishment expectedly disapproved of Paul’s candidacy and tried in many ways to put a spoke in his campaign’s wheels. After initially declaring he really was the offspring of a crocodile and an hippopotamus’ mating (the ready-witted masses didn’t buy that one), they resorted to more classical defamatory tactics. They artificially created national controversy out of the claims of an anonymous woman who surfaced like a Sputnik submarine after a 30 year dive in the abyss and claimed that Paul had kidnapped her, forced her to take drugs, tore off her clothes and entertained himself with her. Good God almighty, have we been wrong all along? In the end, is Mr. Paul a worse molester than Arnold Schwarzenegger?
The ridiculous hoax was quickly unraveled when the woman subsequently admitted in an exclusive interview with this author that she had neither been kidnapped nor forcibly drugged by Paul. She explained with shocking details how she had spent the last 30 years on LSD in a CIA prison-like lab waiting for the perfect occasion for the federal agency to have her come out of the blue and discredit a “villain” to the elite. When the drugs wore off, she realized what treachery she had been a part of and redeemed herself by confessing the truth to the most trustworthy representant of the media she could find. When your humble reporter contacted the Agency’s spokespersons to have their input concerning this revolting travesty, they declined to comment over the phone but said they would be glad to give an interview in a remote and picturesque location in the middle of the woods, and the interviewer had to come alone. Yours truly said he would think about it. (Finish this article on the fly and move the heck out this place. Timbuktu? Sounds fine.)
Rand throws a javelin straight to his opponent’s heart while his father Ron laughs it off.
Rand Paul received 723,453 votes compared to Conway’s 2 (his wife and his psychiatrist, his regular prostitute being unable to make it in time to the polls) and went on to Congress to represent Kentucky. He tried to pass a bill that would repatriate all soldiers abroad, but Mr. Change opposed this fiercely, citing that there were still bearded people breathing and black, syrupy gold to be stolen. It is rumoured that Rand will run for President when his currently 80 year old father, Ron, retires from politics in 2047.
Rand believes that all politicians helping the globalists bring about a New World Order should be beheaded and their heads put on spikes strategically disseminated in the Congress vicinity to discourage the rampant corruption that is plaguing the highest offices in the Kingdom. Promoting a strict constitutionalist point of view, Paul believes that everybody should have the right to wander around with a concealed tomahawk just as it was written in the Constitution a few hundreds years ago. He also vehemently opposed the War on Drugs on the Senate floor, outraged that a person could spend years in jail for simple marijuana possession, but other senators reminded him after his speech that this law is applied only to the lowly commoner, not to themselves. A big fat joint then started circulating during the hearings.
Rand personally worships a deity known as the eternalAqua Buddha, the true savior of mankind. Rand’s religious worship of the holy Aqua Buddha often includes the ingestion of entheogenic drugs such as PCP and adrenochrome. The holy writ of Aqua Buddha calls for nonbelievers to be given drugs and encouraged to experience their spirituality thanks to the worship of the merciful and water-dwelling enlightened one. Rand denies having ever done this to anybody, though one could easily imagine him doing it. Many have criticized him for his peculiar beliefs, to which Rand reminds folks that the Constitution says he may believe whatever he wants, and that nonbelievers will regret their foolishness when they are in Aqua Buddha Hell.
Rand Paul takes on the pestiferous Capitol Hill final Boss.
Paul recently took on 3 corrupted monsters that were opposed to one of his hallowed bills written to stop illegal wars. He battled them fiercely on the Senate floor, relying on his trusted main weapon and armor: the Righteous Sword and the Paladin Vest. The antagonists attacked with their foul claws and razor-sharp teeth, and one put forth his Special attack, the Lobbying Dragon Breath, which caused Paul severe burns and dealt him 2,398 HP worth of damage. The battle raged on, Rand mercilessly multiplying White magic on his unholy enemies while hastily drinking blessed Coors Light potions between two critical hits in order to save his skin and finally annihilate a hellish duet. Resolutely walking over the agonizing bodies of the Witch of the Underworld and the Abomination from the Abyss, a bloodied and battered Rand took on the ultimate Nemesis: The Dark Lord Sauron himself!
A heated battle ensued, in which both opponents wildly took turns at bludgeoning one another. In the final breathtaking moments, Obama summoned The Patriot Act Thunder Attack, which was blocked by Paul’s Constitutional Cloak. He replied with the People’s Wrath, which went right through the Presidential Guard and caused the dictator to drop his Fake Birth Certificate. The usurper then tried to utilize the Nuevo Ordo Seclorum supreme spell but Rand beat him to the finish line when he managed to get out of his sleeves the Ultimate Holy Summon: the Ron Paul Paternal Wrath, where both father and son joined strength with the Founding Fathers’ spirits to repeal that Demonic Aberration and seal him into the Depths of Hell for eternity!
Since father and son cleansed the Kingdom from the horrendous Evil that was corrupting it, the American people finally could prosper in the Land of the Free and aspire to the American Dream. Their nation, freshly liberated from the shackles of tyranny, became well respected throughout the World, and the Wisdom and Goodness of its leaders and people was sung abroad.

Rand Paul is a Republican United States Senator from Kentucky with conservative-libertarian view points, as well as the son of former Congressman and regular presidential candidate Ron Paul. An eye doctor by trade, Paul has been married to his wife, Kelly, since 1990 and together they have three sons. While Paul has limited political history, he was a frequent campaigner for his father and also the founder of a pro-taxpayer group in Kentucky, Kentucky Taxpayers United.
Rand Paul has a very limited political history and did not make a run for political office until 2010. Although he started as a double-digit underdog to Trey Grayson in the GOP primary, Paul took advantage of the anti-establishment sentiment within the Republican Party and was one of many long-shot outsiders to oust GOP-backed candidates. With the backing of the tea party, Paul went on to defeat Grayson 59-35%. Democrats believed they had a decent chance in the general election against Paul due to his lack of political experience. They party picked the fairly popular state Attorney General, Jack Conway. Though Conway led in early polling, Paul went on to win by a fairly comfortable 12 points. Paul was backed by most conservatives and tea party groups, including Jim DeMint and Sarah Palin.
Rand Paul is a conservative-libertarian who is ideologically-aligned with his father, Ron Paul, on most issues. Paul is staunchly in favor of state’s rights on most issues and he believes that the federal government should only legislate where it is constitutionally authorized to do so.
He believes “hot-button” issues such as gay marriage and marijuana legalization should be up for each state to decide, which also seems to be an emerging opinion within the conservative movement.
Rand Paul is pro-life, which is perhaps where he deviates most from the larger libertarian movement. He opposes federal funding of almost everything, including abortion, education, healthcare and other extra-constitutional issues that are meant to be handled by each individual state. The main area of concern for conservatives regarding Paul is on foreign policy. While Paul is clearly on the less interventionist and less activist scale of foreign policy, he is not quite the extremist his father was on the issue.
Possible 2016 Presidential Run:
Rand Paul is expected by many to be a potential candidate for President in 2016. He could potentially attract much of the same voter pool as Marco Rubio, who took a nearly identical path as Paul to the US Senate in 2010. Paul could also potentially benefit from the large following his father attracted over the years while also being able to attract a larger segment of mainstream Republican voters. Rand Paul’s personality and presentation style is far more welcoming and could better attract voters beyond the college-aged crowd.
This story has been updated. It was originally posted at 3:10 p.m.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) will report around $2.5 million in donations to his presidential campaign, a dip from his first quarter, though his campaign is emphasizing that more money started to roll in recently.
“Not only are we in for the long haul but weve seen an uptick in crowds and support,” said Paul’s spokesman Sergio Gor. “Since the last debate weve raised $750,000.”
One of the first candidates to officially declare for the White House, Paul had raised close to $7 million from April through June. That was slightly more than his father, former Texas Congressman Ron Paul, raised in the comparable period of his 2012 bid. But in the next quarter of that campaign, Ron Paul raised$8 million.
Gor emphasized that the new Paul campaign was on an “upward trend,” especially since the second presidential debate. Paul had used thatforum emphasize his more libertarian stances, something some key Paul donors had privately asked for. “That was due to a solid debate performance that got our crowd excited,” said Gor. “We’re a solid campaign and our fundraising pace is doubling.”
But the dropoff from the first quarter, coupled with thetroubles of two pro-Paul super PACs, could aid the ongoing efforts of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) to lure supporters into his camp. The weeks between the first and second debate saw one pro-Paul super PAC’s leaders indicted, and another (less active) pro-Paul PAC announce that it was pausing its efforts until the candidate improved in the polls. The campaign has $2 million cash on hand, having already spent $250,000 to help the Republican Party of Kentucky pay for a presidential caucus. That will let Paul seek a Senate re-election as he tries toforgeahead in the White House race — something the campaign says it has more than enough money and momentum to do.
Paul spent an estimated $4.66 million in the last three months, nearly the double the amount of money he raised — a burn rate that will require a substantially faster fundraising pace.

Rand Paul raises $2.5 million in second quarter – The …
Rand Paul may very well already beon his way out of the Republican presidential campaign, but hes going out with a bang, not a whimper, forcefully rebuking his Senate colleague and Republican presidential rival, Ted Cruz, for being the root of Senate dysfunction.
Paul told Fox News Brian Kilmeadethat he believed Cruzs petty politics and disregard for Senate decorum have made him an ineffective legislator, writing off the Texas freshmans future in the senate: He is pretty much done for:
Ted has chosen to make this really personal and chosen to call people dishonest in leadership and call them names which really goes against the decorum and also against the rules of the senate, and as a consequence he cant get anything done legislatively. He is pretty much done for and stifled and its really because of personal relationships, or lack of personal relationships, and it is a problem. I approach things a little different, I am still just as hardcore in saying what we are doing , I just chose not to call people liars on the Senate floor and its just a matter of different perspectives on how best to get to the end result.
Paul has a point.
In July, Cruz called Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the effective leader of the Republican Party, a liar on the Senate floor. Days later, his Republican colleagues refused to grant him the 16 votes needed to pass a simple procedural vote as a public rebuke of his outburst. This week, McConnell got his revenge, denying (for now) Cruz the government shutdown over Planned Parenthood he so desperately wanted to prop up his presidential campaign. Of course, that didnt stop the stunts from Cruz he tried to offer up a referendum on McConnells leadership this week before being summarily shutdown by his fellow Republican senators.
Of course, Paul is mostly just backing up the senior senator from his home state of Kentucky, as he actually opposes the continuing resolution set to pass this week to keep the government operating for the time being. Paul, like Cruz, is in favor of defunding Planned Parenthood, even if that means shutting down the government over it. He just disagrees with Cruzs tact:
I would defund not only Planned Parenthood but hundreds and hundreds of regulations, hundreds and hundreds of wasteful programs. I would take them all out, put them on the table and say You know what Democrats, it doesnt take 60 votes to defund something, its actually going to take 60 votes to fund any of these programs, vote on them one at a time and we will see how many of these crazy programs get 60 votes. My guess would be very few, but that would take the courage to let the spending expire and start anew and let new programs all require 60 votes to pass
Paul and Cruz would appear to be natural allies, with their Tea Party base of support and their libertarian bents, but since entering the Senate, the two have had markedly different styles. Cruz has been on a seemingly non-stop rant against the D.C. establishment while Paul has forged friendships and close political alliances with the partys top leaders as he works double-time to keep his Senate seat while running for president.

Rand Paul shreds Ted Cruz over his showboating antics: He is …

Sen.Rand Paul on Tuesday saidfellow Republican presidential candidate Ted. Cruz is done for in the Senate.
Ted has chosen to make this really personal and chosen to call people dishonest in leadership and call them names, which really goes against the decorum and also against the rules of the Senate, and as a consequence, he cant get anything done legislatively, Paul told Fox News Radio. He is pretty much done for and stifled and its really because of personal relationships, or lack of personal relationships, and it is a problem.
Paul has supportedMcConnell despite their differences.(Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call File Photo)
Paul, a Kentucky Republican who has had the backing of his home-state senior senator, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, despite some tough policy differences, had been asked about Cruzs inability to even muster the support of 11 senators to secure a roll call vote on a procedural motion designed to amend the continuing resolution to keep the government running.
The Senates set to vote on passage of that measure at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, the last day of the federal governments 2015 fiscal year.
I approach things a little different, I am still just as hardcore in saying what we are doing, I just chose not to call people liars on the Senate floor and its just a matter of different perspectives on how best to get to the end result, Paul said in the interview.
Paul backed McConnells 2014 re-election bid.Cruz had accused McConnell of lying to him about the way forward for the revival of the Export-Import Bank in the Senate.
Like Cruz, Paul opposes the CRadvancedby McConnell to avoid a shutdown later in the week. But Paul has focused his criticism on the use of the stopgap spending vehicles. Paul would have rather seen more pressure put on Democrats to advance the dozen individual appropriation bills.
I would defund not only Planned Parenthood but hundreds and hundreds of regulations, hundreds and hundreds of wasteful programs. I would take them all out, put them on the table and say You know what Democrats, it doesnt take 60 votes to defund something, its actually going to take 60 votes to fund any of these programs, vote on them one at a time and we will see how many of these crazy programs get 60 votes. My guess would be very few, but that would take the courage to let the spending expire and start anew and let new programs all require 60 votes to pass, Paul said.
McConnell signaled Tuesday he intends to call additional votes on the regular fiscal 2016 spending bills, though there was no evidence Democrats accede to thatproposalwithout a big budget agreement between the two parties.
