Rand Paul is the real rising star of the GOP.
As I’ve been telling you for months now, I expect a complete collapse of the Democratic Party following the wipe out in this year’s elections.
From massive Culture War losses which have red-pilled minorities to hysterical outbreaks over basic Presidential foreign policy the Democrats are losing the center of the U.S. electorate.
The latest NBC/Wall St. Journal poll confirms the news.
… just 33% of those surveyed feel the Democratic Party is “in the mainstream.” More than half (56%) consider them out of step.
Just two years ago in 2016, those numbers were far different: 48% mainstream, 42% out. That means the “mainstream” number has plunged 15%, a huge drop in just two years.
What does this have to do with Rand Paul?
Because Paul is positioning himself, smartly, to take advantage of the power vacuum left by the vacancy that will be left in the GOP this fall. The old guard GOP establishment is losing control of the party.
The Neoconservatives are openly jumping ship back to the Democrats.
As I talk about in my latest article for Strategic Culture Foundation, the Democrats are rallying around a 30% share of the electorate that is slowly shrinking.
Rasmussen put out a poll recently which I believe is accurate saying that 65% of self-identified Democrats believe Trump is a traitor while as many as a third of Republicans do as well….
…With more than 40% of the U.S. electorate identifying as Independent (and that number is rising) those in the ‘treason’ camp represent, at most, 30% of voters – 20% from the Democrats, at most 10% from Republicans.
It is the same globalist, interventionist coalition that has seen its brethren monkey-hammered all across Europe over the past two years.
Social Democrats are no longer in power in Europe. And no matter how hard they try to rebrand themselves using cheap, emotional paeans to community, the patience of the majority of people for their nonsense has been reached.
Paul has smartly moved to support trump in his fight against a Deep State in open insurrection against his presidency.
And with the GOP establishment changing Trump has the opportunity to remake the GOP and Paul is seizing the opportunity to be his consigliere in the Senate.
The first thought that pops into mind when discussing Paul’s rise is for him to replace Mike “The Establishment’s Insurance Policy” Pence as Vice-President. But, that’s not where Paul’s true value lies.
John McCain is dying or alive in the same way that Brezhnev was alive in the weeks before the announcement. He, along with the Supreme Court retirements, represent the beginning of a sea change in the leadership of the U.S. that will occur over the next six years of Trump’s presidency.
Paul is placing himself to take over as Chairman of a number of powerful committees currently held by these same last-generation, Boomer dead-enders, if not Senate majority leader at some point.
That’s where the real power is wielded in D.C. And that’s where Paul has to remain to be most effective going forward.
Replacing Pence would effectively neuter him and end his political career just when it was getting interesting.
By the time Trump is done remaking things in D.C., this country will be ready for a guy like Rand Paul to run for President.
But, things have to happen in a specific order and over the right time frame for it to happen. Paul’s father, the great Ron Paul, was a few years too early. He lit the fire that Trump threw gasoline on which will burn away the rot in the Swamp.
It’ll be Rand Paul’s opportunity to begin building something new if he continues to play his cards right.
Oh how I hope you are right sir!

Tom, unfortunately Rand Paul has been in the Senate for 7 years and as of now has not built anything resembling a coalition of like-minded thinkers. For whatever reasons, apparently Dr. Paul is not well liked in the Senate.
Rand Paul may have the right message, but he may not be the right messenger.
Wondering why this submitted comment has not been posted…
because I missed it. mea culpa. approved now.
The true relationship of Rand Paul to the other figures you discuss can only be understood by switching from the traditional one-dimensional “left-center-right” model to a two-dimensional model, where left and right represent only the horizontal axis of a political circle.
The vertical axis is where Americans have increasingly turned their attention over the last two decades. At the top pole of the circle are those who favor the centralization of power. At the bottom are those who favor the empowerment of individual citizens. So, while Rand Paul and John McCain might have some conservative values in common, McCain is near the top of the circle, in the upper right quadrant, while Paul sits on the lower portion of the lower right quadrant.
The neo-cons have always been at the upper pole, so left versus right is an inaccurate description for them …… It’s also a short trip into either party’s leadership for a neo-con since the national committee of each party is near the top of its respective upper quadrant.
Where are the centrists? ……. Well, since every American’s position sits on the circle, then centrism is a difficult concept to justify. It’s merely a distortion caused by our uncritical acceptance of a one-dimensional “left-right” model. In truth, almost every prominent figure who self-labels as centrist is in reality a centralizer of power.
I am wishing for the events you describe to happen, and happen quickly.
The sooner people like McCain, his fellow Arizona back-bencher fakey-flaky Jeff Flake, and other useless denizens of the swamp move out after this election cycle, the faster this progress will happen. If the nation holds together long enough.
