    This is a great place to start cleaning house and if Rand Paul is to spineless to just come out and say it ... maybe he should go as well.

    We need people who will meet the corruption head on in D.C..... those not afraid to speak the truth or prefer to stab people in the back ... we have enough of those people already!

    My faults with McConnell is his repeated support for outsourcing, and in his leadership position he has the ability to help but he chooses CEO profit over the country. It is a long standing position for him and everybody in the country has been affected by NAFTA and other free trade agreements, and the tax loopholes that pay companies to relocate. He hasn't thought things through on our insane drug laws, has made no move to stop the drain of resources it takes for locking people up for profit, which has bankrupted every state practically, for no reason other than a profit motive, and he did change his position on hemp but had to be educated by Paul on that issue. That type of thinking is not what we need today.

    Oh I can't stand Mitch either. It was good of him to finally do something for Kentucky with his new position on hemp growing. I think maybe we should start a write in campaign for a real Libertarian because if not Mitch is all we got and I hate to say it but between the two choices we're going to have he is the lesser of the two evils . Kentucky deserves better than what we are going to get in any event.

    @Hillofbeans From what I've seen and read he would be a better choice. I just don't think he's going to win the primary. Maybe we should show him some support you never know. At any rate anyone would be better than what I think is going to happen.

    Mitch McConnell represents the worst of humanity. Going back to Obama's 1st day in office when he foolishly allowed himself to be recorded saying that anything Obama proposed they would reject regardless of having any knowledge of what it was they were rejecting, speaks to his complete and utter disregard for his constituents, yet alone the will of the people in general. McConnell cares about one thing and one thing only: money, and he will do and say whatever he has to keep himself in a position to rake-in as much as he can. This culminated in a deal he made with Harry Reid to back off if he received the congressional nod for over-funding an infrastructure project in his state of KY. Most generous estimates this project would require 2.1 billion dollars, McConnell received 3, a 900 million-dollar over-fund for those of you who wrestle with basic math. If you were paying close attention right up until this time Mitch McConnell was extremely vocal about his "stance" on the ACA, the IRS, Benghazi, the NSA, and shutting down the government using unchallenged political rhetoric all the way. Then all of sudden, in a completely uncharacteristic manner for HIM, no McConnell to be heard from for months. Those "scandals" magically began to evaporate. Mitch is like a poisonous gas: you need him to smell so you know where he is.

    the tea party and the libertarians will never hold a majority, best to support a legitimate party and have some trading materials down the road..

    Yea because the central banker party has done wonders for this country. You're a fool if you think there is a difference between D and R.

    ANY Republican and Kentucky may want to take a peek at what happened in DE - the far far right loon who displaced the sure win Republican LOST! That's not how we win the Senate. Being stupid lost us big time in 2012. Just remember how things were under a complete Democrat control of the President, the House and the Senate. Want that again? If so, be dumb, run an unelectable candidate and then sit home and pout because you didn't get 100% of what you wanted.

    Either way it doesn't matter.The Teanderthal Bevin can't win a fair election and McConnell is a short timer.

    the "DITCH MITCH" effort is going full tilt.and Kentucky will finally get rid of 1 of the 2 embarrassments this state has in the US senate

    This is not my state. What I think doesn't matter. I would like to point out that the tea party and libertarians claim the Republican Party, but the Republican Party does not claim the tea party or libertarians! It's time to stop mixing up these two separate parties with the true Republican Party! They are not the same! Pick one. Either a person is a libertarian or not. Either a person is part of the tea party or they are not. If a person is a true Republican they are not part of the tea party or a member of the libertarians! I am not a libertarian! I have nothing to do with the tea party! I do side, for the most part, with the real Republican Party. I am a moderate conservative. That in essence means I cannot be a libertarian or a part of the tea party! I can be part of the Republican Party, but not always agree. There is no room for that as a libertarian or as a part of the tea party! Speaking of libertarians, who in their right minds are going to pay a political party in order to be a full member of that party? That is exactly what is expected if a person wants to be a libertarian! Never will I pay to be a member of a political party! They are supposed to do all they can to get your votes! Making people pay them is the opposite!

    Because unlike Reid, Mitch is an upstanding guy who still cares about the constitution and the people. Mitch still believe that we are smart enough not to need baby sitters who think they know whats best. There are a literal shit ton of reasons to support Mitch over some flaky, anti-constitutionalist left wing nut job. The biggest is the Constitution and the support of it. Not to mention he supports the industry that keeps both Kentucky and West Virginia employeed despite the Obama and the left wings refusal to allow any more plants and demand to shut down the rest.

    LOL O MY GOD! You seriously think the republican establishment is somehow actually better than and are fighting the democrats! O that is precious.
    It takes 2 to tango, and the establishments of both parties are dancing hand in hand heading for our pockets!

    "Mitch is an upstanding guy who still cares about the constitution and the people."
    I would like to see examples/evidence of this, particularly in terms of votes and/or support of things showing support of the Constitution. Honest request - could you point me toward such examples?

    She's going to have to make some better stands than she has come up with so far. Saying she would support the Democrat platform at this point didn't help her here. We see that platform and the mess it's caused.

    @Hillofbeans I don't think you speak for as much of Kentucky as you think you do friend. I'm from here as well, and I see people everyday who is sick of McConnel, the man is a waste, and frankly one of the worst in congress. As of now Grimes is leading in the polling. And McConnel is becoming rather desperate. Only time will tell.

    @Hillofbeans I'm from across the river so I know many Kentuckians. You speak for the minority. You all just scream so loudly you'd swear there were more of you.

    Let's refocus on the real story here though. Rand Paul is a libertarian in name only. He endorsed McConnel because McConnell is a republican and that's all there is to it. He is as partisan as any other hack.

    He talks a good game but when opportunities like this present themselves ... he cow-tails just like the rest of the spineless worms in D.C.... it's really pathetic!

    Romney lost me when he got rid of Ron Paul at the Republican convention. Romney's action was despicable. My motto has been 'never trust a proven liar.. never trust a cheat'. Romney cheated.

    McConnell sold out the American people with his caving on the increase of the debt ceiling and by being complacent to the destruction of the American way of life.
