What does Bill Maher love about Ron and Rand Paul? They are not for American Empire!

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) received some unexpected props from none other than die-hard liberal and host of the HBO program “Real Time with Bill Maher” , Bill Maher who said Friday that the younger Paul “could give Hillary a run for her money” in 2016.

Maher says Paul’s success could be based on his aversion to “American Empire”.

“Like his father, he is for not for having an American empire,” Maher said, referring to former GOP presidential candidate and his dad, Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas). “That’s the thing I love about the Pauls.”

Blogger Andrew Sullivan concurred with Maher saying, “I think Rand Paul’s attempt to say what most people in this country really understand, which is we don’t need to run the world. We don’t want to run the world. America would be in a better place if we were less interested in our own power, and more interested in freedom.”

The author of the 1988 controversial novel, The Satanic Versies, Salman Rushdie believes that if Paul could tap into the youth vote, he’d have a chance.
