Interesting point.

Rand Paul clearly is seeking to move the GOP in a more libertarian direction.  Most recently, he has called for changes to "cookie cutter conservatism," referencing a change in the party's position on drugs (for one example) as a way to attract more young people to the GOP (http://www.foxnews.com/on-air/fox-news-sunday-chris-wallace/2013/03/24/sen-rand-paul-top-congressional-issues-pivotal-moment-battle-over-gay-marriage#p//v/2250608088001).

In theory, libertarian principles often sound great, especially when you're young.  After all, it sounds pretty good to announce that the government should just stay out of everbody's business.

The problem, however, is that it doesn't. And over the past several decades, America has done a poor job of reminding everyone...
