Skip to comments.Rand Paul masks his true worldview

Since arriving in the Senate in 2011, Rand Paul has been probing here and there for issues of populist resonance. Audit the secretive, sinister Federal Reserve. Rein in those TSA screeners patting down little girls. In each instance, Paul (R-Ky.) has evoked the fear of oppressive government without tipping over into the paranoia of his fathers most dedicated supporters. It has been a diluted, domesticated, decaffeinated version of the ideology that motivated Ron Pauls presidential races.

So, what we have is judicial and fiscal restraint coupled with a not-so-isolationist foreign policy. So where's the problem?
Don't you SEE?
He's guilty by paternal association!

Scribblers at the WP are the philosophical and intellectual heirs to the Nazi propaganda hierarchy.
Personally I’d like to stop wasting lives and resources trying to civilize the savages of the mideast and return to something more akin to the Monroe Doctrine. After all those mideastern savages are happily infecting central and south America and need to be stopped.
We can do that and still stand by Israel with minimal forces in the mideast.
I just LOVE how the gope states it has the power to know a man’s inner thoughts when they can’t even articulate their own...because if they did, their hair would catch on fire.
Karl Rove in pink tights. Is that you, Karl?
I don’t agree with some of Rand Paul’s positions, but he seems to have incorporated the libertarian stuff of his father without all the crazy. He is papabile.
He should be.
If there’s a credible conservative candidate in 2016 who actually is fiscally conservative and starts laying out why we should no longer be “cop to the world,” he’s going to win.
The neo-con Jews are going to hyperventilate and scream, because they know that the Democrats, for all the Jews who gullibly vote Democratic, don’t like Jews or Israel. They like Jewish money... and maybe votes, but that’s about it. So the neo-cons, seeing no other parties in the US, are going to put everything they’ve got into destroying people like Rand Paul and anyone else who doesn’t enjoy foreign mis-adventures in the middle east.
I think that now is the time for conservatives to give the neo-cons the heave-ho and send them packing. If the neo-cons want to talk about supporting Israel, then they can tell American Jews “If you want to see Israel survive, you’d better start sending your money and support there, rather than into American politics...” because the rest of us are tired of sending out money, national reputation and young people into the middle east to counter “threats” which aren’t a threat to the US at all.
The GOPe is trying to “Alinsky” Rand Paul but don’t realize that they’ve already lost.
It reminds me of some comments Robert E Lee made about a particularly bloody defeat. He said he tried to turn an obvious defeat into a victory and ended up costing far more lives than necessary. Basically he let his pride get in the way of wisdom and that’s what the GOPe is happily doing with their attacks on Rand Paul.
The Bible I read says that, Genesis 12:3
King James Version (KJV)
3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
I believe it means Isreal NOT individual Jewish People. G*D will(and has) judged his chosen people thoughout time and history.
Sadly , we cant afford influence in the middle east. The bamster has pissed away our abilities.
Ron Paul may be right or wrong or crazy, but it's moronic or deceitful to claim to know what's really on his mind if you don't deal with what his supporters are most worried about.
Support for scumbags like Chuck Hagel and willingness to pass amnesty for illegals, for starters.
So who is better?
The smearing of Rand Paul begins.
Memo to Micheal Gerson:
1. Some of us are a little uncomfortable with the plan to deploy up to 30,000 drones over the sunny skies of Amerika spying on every move we make.
2. Some of us are a schosh concerned about a govt agency named “Homeland” Security sticking their hands down our pants at the airport, buying 2 billion rounds of ammo, 7,000 full auto assault rifles and 2717 armored trucks.
3. If the terrorists were so desparate to destroy us they could have waltzed an army across the largely open SW border at anytime in the past 10 years but for some unknown reason they have not.
Some of us are more afraid of the US govt than the terrorists. Arguably the US govt is the terrorist.
He was George Bush's evangelical speech writer. He got in the dispute with Bush's NeoCon speech writer(David Frumj) over that phrase "axis of evil"
What? You can’t say GOD????
