https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-politics/wp/2016/01/11/rand-paul-bumped-from-main-debate-stage-will-boycott-thursdays-undercard/

Fox News just announced that Rand Paul will be ineligible for the next debate on the main stage and will instead be relegated to the undercard (high school) debate stage. This is a humiliating and shockingly stupid move by Fox New's establishment republican executives. Rand Paul is the only one on the GOP field with noticeable differences in policy compared to his rivals on criminal reform, drug policy, foreign policy, mass surveillance, and voter ID laws.

I'm boycotting the debate. People should follow suit. Rand Paul has $25 million, 1000 captains in Iowa, has made the ballot in every state, and has been increasing in multiple polls.

Jai, rand Paul doesn't have enough support. It's not like he was singled out, carely got kicked out too. The point is, no matter how much I like Rand, he obviously failed and honestly should stop wast his money because frankly, our time as libertarians hasn't arrived. Policy and beliefs doesn't determine where you are in the polls, people do and he doesn't have much.

It doesn't matter if he can't win the point is that he is espousing a unique viewpoint in the Republican Party. He is an important foundation for showing that the republican party is the big-tent party of ideas and solutions. Multiple people on the main debate stage know they have no chance of winning!! Enough of this uppercard and undercard debates. Its grossly unprofessional. Fox News is essentially trying to predetermine election results by selectively choosing who voters get to here speak. Its undemocratic and reeks of the establishment gerrymandering this election.

His notable differences are because he is not a Republican. You could stick any Democrat on the stage and say he has notable differences to the others XD

At least Rand Paul is actually a fiscal conservative, unlike most in the government (republican, democrat or other).

Rand just didn't have the conviction and intensity that his father brought, and he wasn't able to pull much support. I also felt like he sold out some of his ideals in an attempt for broader support, which obviously backfired. There will be a time for a libertarian president (and hopefully entire political party) in the USA but it's not today, we just get to pick our flavor of authoritarian.

Rand was the only republican candidate who didn't make me cringe in previous debates, if the election comes down to Clinton VS Anyone But Rand Paul I will be happily throwing my vote behind a fringe candidate, because at this point the only way things will get better is be throwing the Dems AND Repubs out of office.

Rand Paul, the ony Republican candidate that can debate on substance and policies...no wonder he got kicked out of the debate stage, it's a Republican "debate", i.e. a clown show for who is going to be the loudest idiot on stage. Rand Paul just could't fit in.

you people really don't get it do you? here I will make it simple!



Not enough support + Not enough support = Not being a major candidate! and thus you don't get on the main stage. he's got the lowest number of any relatively well known candidate and unfortunately Trump made him and Bush look like idiots most debates ( which is really Both Bush's and Paul's Fault. I mean for goodness sake they had so much to bash him for but they chose to go at him personally and tarnish his record and in turn Trump made them look like bumbling idiots. Rand made a dumbass mistake and whatever advisor told him to do that should be fired ) I mean honestly, Rand made so many beginner mistakes. personally I think Rand was riding on the fact that he thought his ideas and rhetoric would push him through but you need to be able to connect with the crowd and pull out the trump card ( no pun intended ) at the right moment something which Ron had but Rand does not. Rand cant connect and does not have a stage personality like Trump has. I think Rand Is Probably gonna be our generations Newt Gengrich. A good guy, with good ideas, and got good stuff done but he just did't have what it took to Be President much less Successfully run for it

+100 Hitchslap,

It seems that these US parties "debates" are just for the show (for what I see here), the one losing is the less entertaining one, how can you win against Trumpy the clown?

Ironically that's how I felt about the Democrat's debates...felt bad for Chafee and Webb.

Lincoln Chafee, the guy blaming on his father's death the fact that he made bad decisions, pathetic, and Jim Webb the republican guy on a democratic debate joking about the vietnamese he blew off with a grenade...awkward. These two never got more than 1% and never mattered, thankfully they dropped out quickly from the race. Chafee isn't a bad guy tho, just not one cut out for this.

However, from all the debates i've seen, most of the democrats debate were about substance and policies, unlike the republican ones, that were just about wich monkey could throw his feces best, they couldn't discuss real issues if they tried to, ignorance runs rampant on the republican side (with the exception of Rand Paul, who wanted to talk substance on the last couple of debates,too bad substance and facts don't do well with the republican primary voters).

lol your not actually believing that? the democrat debates are quite funny. The Hardest qus for Clinton was " Mrs. Clinton, how many African children do you plan to save this year? " I mean god her qus were so freaking easy even Carson could not mess up on them. The Republican Debates have been a bunch of figure pointing, I agree, but if you honestly think the democrat debate was better then I feel sorry for you. at least with republicans it was entertaining but with democrats I swear I fell asleep twice. I was at the TV screaming " WE FUCKING GET IT! YOU HATE TRUMP, REPUBLICANS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR EVERY PROBLEM ON EARTH AND FOR ALL FUTURE PROBLEMS!! JUST FREAKING TALK ABOUT AN ACTUAL ISSUE!!! PLEASE!!! I AM BEGGING YOU!!!! ". Bernie was the only reason I watched that debate and I was really surprised when he basically rolled over and played dead while Clinton and O'Mally Beat the crap out of him on gun control. Republicans have new blood this year and its exciting, Democrats are playing the same Cards all over again.


only a moderate Republican Can beat Clinton so I really want Kasich or Rubio but it will never happen




Koala you seem to lecture most people on how there countries should run. so please, I would love to know what you think America needs.....based on her culture. America is nothing like Europe ( thank god ) so just keep that in mind

Everybody's getting so psyched 'bout this when we all know Clinton will have her second term, and maybe get a third one in four years time. Whether you like it or not, Hill Clinton is going to lead 'Murica again.

How can he quantitatively determine which debate was more about "substance and policy"? Hint...you can't. His subject opinions about the Republican party are just being projected onto his analysis of the debates. Its as simple as that.
