    Bon, other than he and his father disagree on how many US bases on foreign soil need to be closed and whether drones should be used to kill armed liquor store robbers; could you point out where else they might have some major differences?

    How do you know for sure he will get shunned ? The Republicans dont want to lose again, and right now their choices are two young guns, which a whole lot better than going back to Rick>Rick>Newt> or the old guard...

    maybe the choice comes down to Rand or 4 years of Hillary....

    As for his differences with his dad, his major difference is the way he is conducting himself in the spotlight..He has made no major gaffes,he is twice the orator his dad was, and he has been very careful to take some stances that are not absolute...I think he is more pragmatic than his father, I think (and hope) that he learned from the way his father was shunned by the media, by being his own man, he not only will get the majority of his dad's supporters but attract a whole new segment that wouldnt have given his dad a second glance..

    The other difference is that Rand is a US Senator, which carries a whole lot more power than a Congressman representing one district in TX...Rand can tackle and speak out on national issues, his dad only had so much clout in the House

    I was asking about political differences where he and his father don't see eye to eye, not style differences. You won't find many differences especially on major issues or policies.
    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.
