While social media definitely has its pros and cons, you can always rely on it to provide some rather interesting commentary – especially when something goes viral on Twitter. With a simple hashtag, a person can literally be connected with people from all over the world in discussing a specific subject.

These hashtag campaigns have also been known to raise awareness for causes that were mostly being overlooked in the mainstream media. Such as last spring when Boko Haram kidnapped 300 Nigerian girls. All it took was two Nigerians to tweet out “#BringBackOurDaughters” to cause a movement on Twitter that erupted into a worldwide phenomenon which eventually trended under the hashtag “#BringBackOurGirls.”

On the flip side, the hashtag can also be used in some hilarious ways, as we saw last month when Sen. Ted Cruz officially announced that he was running for president.

Well, Twitter has struck again following Sen. Rand Paul’s presidential announcement with the hashtag #RandPaulCampaignSlogans. And I’ll be honest, some of these might be even better than those directed at Cruz.

Here are some of the better ones I came across:

I’ll stop there, but there are a bunch more that are just as funny.

While Rand Paul running for president is a shock to absolutely nobody, I do believe that his campaign will go down as one of the most comical in recent memory. Not because he’s on the same level of delusion as someone like Ted Cruz, but because Paul is somehow trying to be a candidate that panders to libertarians, African-Americans, the young, the old and the radical religious right – and that’s going to be a disaster of epic proportions. He’s literally trying to be a candidate that cannot exist, and I can promise you it’s going to be amazing to watch it all chaotically play out on a national stage.
