Aqua Buddha Rises Up Against The Republican  Establishment
December 12, 2015

Rand Paul joined his friends Ben Carson and Donald Trump with the fist-shaking over Republican party leaders' discussions about the possibility of a brokered convention, claiming himself to be an "outsider," too.

“If the establishment tries to block an outsider from winning the nomination, there’ll be war within the party and they’ll destroy the party,” he said. “The establishment needs to realize that Republicans across the country are unhappy, they’re unhappy with the Washington leaders who are not exercising the power of the purse. They’re unhappy with Washington leaders not standing up to president Obama. And they’re sick and tired of all of it.”

“So if they see their will thwarted through the primary process, I think you’re gonna find that, uh, there’ll be a war declared,” Paul continued. “But it’ll be a war that the establishment has decided to declare on the grassroots and it’s gonna be a real problem.”

Umm, Rand? I think you have that backwards. It's the grassroots who have declared war on the establishment, and it's not going to end well whether there's a brokered convention or not.
