Ron Paul's son, Rand, is running for US Senate (KY-R)

Rand Paul is running for the US Senate. He'll be in a GOP primary for the soon-to-be-open US Senate seat in Kentucky. It's currently held by Jim Bunning.

Here's a quote from Rand Paul's website about bailouts:

Federal bailouts reward inefficient and corrupt management, rob taxpayers, hurt smaller and more responsible private firms, exacerbate our budget problems, explode national debt, and destroy our US Dollar. Even more importantly, any bailout of private industry is in direct violation of the constitution. It is a transfer of wealth from those who have earned to those who have squandered. The federal government has overstepped its enumerated powers as stipulated in the supreme law of the land.

That's largely why I'll probably be donating a few dollars to him.
