According to this article, published March 31, 2016 by Time Magazine, Republican chicken hawks are terrified that Rand Paul is too much like his iconic father, Ron Paul.

The old guard establishment...the Chris Christies and Lindsey Grahams of the elephant party are willing to do whatever it takes to prevent a non-interventionist foreign policy. Here are a few quotes from the article:

“America must be engaged in the world, and we should help the people who share our values,” -Ohio Governor John Kasich

“His edges aren’t as sharp as his father’s,” says Ari Fleischer, a former White House press secretary. “But there’s still a naiveté that’s going to be a problem. He represents a departure from something a lot of Republicans are used to.”

“Can he win Iowa, yes. Can he win New Hampshire, yes. Can he win the nomination, maybe — and that’s scary,” says one former Mitt Romney bundler at the conference who did not want to be named.

What scares the establishment is good for liberty. Rand Paul should win the 2016 presidential election
