Rand Paul Takes a Poke at Neocon Evangelicals From the Paleolibertarian camp
There’s no doubt to me that Rand Paul is referencing the Neocon evangelical camp, and he’s speaking from the faux-libertarian evangelical camp. This rift widened and proponents from both sides started quiet infighting behind the scenes a couple of years before the end of Bush’s last term. It’s essentially the troofer far right vs. the Neocon hard right, initially the Neocons had the upper hand from the inertia of the Bush years, but now it’s the wigged out far right in control of the GOP.

“… .We’re talking about ‘blessed are the peacemakers’ not ‘blessed are the warmakers.’
