TIME 100: Rand Paul (By Sarah Palin)
TIME ^ | Sarah Palin

Posted on 04/21/2013 7:32:51 PM PDT by JohnPDuncan

Rand Paul U.S. Senator, 50 By Sarah Palin

When the Tea Party movement wanted to send a message to the Senate in 2010, it elected a clear-sighted eye doctor from the Bluegrass State. In a D.C. too often defined by the venal equivocations of a permanent political class more interested in consolidating its own power than in upholding the Constitution or defending the common good, Senator Rand Paul is a voice of reason awakening the public to what must be done to restore our prosperity and preserve the blessings of liberty for future generations. His brand of libertarian-leaning conservatism attracts young voters, and recently he inspired the nation with his Capraesque filibuster demanding basic answers about our use of drones. I sent him some caribou jerky from Alaska to help keep up his strength on the Senate floor. There’s more where that came from for this bold Senator with 20/20 vision willing to take a stand for liberty.

Palin is a former governor of Alaska

read my responses in that thread.

He can’t stop that bill and his amendments will fail.

He’ll probably vote against.

Don’t worry.

If we don't start winning Hispanic votes, we will never see the Presidency.

Being hard nosed is going to get Hillary elected.

Illegal alien amnesty will destroy the country this time. It will finish us as a nation in a way that couldn’t be done even by Obamacare.

Thank you Sarah! Rand has been getting bashed here at FR for quite some time now. Totally undeserved and mostly lies and smears. Thanks again Governor Palin.

Then kiss your party (GOP) and this nation good-bye.

You will not win elections by granting Amnesty to 30 million+ Undocumented Democrats.

Just the realism aside, if you consider yourself a principled conservative, you don't try to buy votes by pandering to those who have broken our laws.

Maybe you should go to Pauls’ web site and read his position on illegals. I would prefer a harder line, but Pauls policy is much better the Rubios’, McCrazys’ and Lindas’.

I think we need to do better among all groups:

Hispanics, Jews, Blacks and Muslims.

The Dems are pretty owning all this vote and its cancelling out the white vote.

That’s why Romney lost pretty badly.

Sarah was praising Rand for his filibuster demanding basic answers about our use of drones. I don’t see any comments from her about his comments that conservatives should brace immigration reform so I would not call this a complete approval. Paul and Rubio are dancing close to the end if they continue this route of amnesty/forgiveness because many will not go along with it which will hurt the party.

Wrong!

Is that you Karl Rove?

Same crap he is shoveling.

Romney lost because he did not excite anyone.

Romney lost because he couldn't communicate a conservative vision if his life depended on it because he is nothing better than a light-weight Democrat pretending to be a Republican.

Romney lost because instead of having any solid conservative principles, he is a businessman who ran a campaign based on risk-avoidance.

Romney lost because he lied about being a conservative pro-life Republican during the primaries and then after he had won the primary he came out in support of Abortion in the case of Rape, Incest, Life AND HEALTH of the mother, basically the same crap the left uses to put ok almost all abortions.

Romney lost because he supported Gays in the Military, Gays in the Boy Scouts and Gay Adoption.

50 million available, legal voters did not take part in the election of 2012.

A goodly portion of those voters would have been motivated, much less the base, to vote and Get out the Vote, if they actually had a conservative to vote for.

I like Sarah and her views carry a lot of weight with me. In fact I changed my vote to Cruz in the Texas primary because of Sarah and I am very happy I did. Cruz is a great Senator. Paul has nothing to do with the immigration bill now in the Senate, I am pretty sure he will vote against it, so I do not understand why he is getting bashed over it.

I agree his record wasn’t great.

What about Mitt Romney being the Father of Gay Marriage in America.

He unconstitutionally implemented Gay Marriage in Massachusetts without the Legislature putting a bill in front him as required by the MA Constitution.

His record just wasn't great, it was positively Progressive Liberal.

The fact that he could, without blushing, call himself a Republican, or even a conservative, just shows you the total lack of a conscience.

Maybe so, maybe not.

However, Rand Paul has his own pile of crap Amnesty proposal where he wants to "Normalize" 2 million undocumented Democrats each and every year based on the "Certification" of the US Congress that the border is secure.

The same congress comprised of approximately 50% Democrats who would certify the border is secure if 100 Terrorists were coming across daily in full view of the border patrol.

The same congress comprised of another 25% of RINOS who will also certify that the border is secure as it is right now.

Rand Paul's Amnesty plan (AKA Immigration Reform plan) does nothing to punish those felons in the Illegal Alien community who have practiced any form of ID Fraud, or crossing the border illegally.

->Senate, I am pretty sure he will vote against it, so I do not understand why he is getting bashed over it.

There have been a number of articles out of Rand telling conservatives they must embrace immigration reform. Jim DeMnit has said this current bill does not address the reforms that need to be first and foremost; as in immediate border security. With this bill, it would be some 3-5 years before a plan is set for that. Can you image all of the illegals entering within 5 years time. The illegals will be granted a legal status. The US is basically focusing on illegals not on those who want to come here legally. It's a bad bill. America will be forever changed.

Obamacare ultimately can be reversed if the Republicans stiffen their spine, and they are more likely to do so as the misery caused by Obamacare increasingly is revealed. Once the American people are replaced by illegal aliens there will be no turning back, much as the United Kingdom has been and continues to be destroyed by the Labour Party decisions to replace the British people with immigrants from former colonies in order to keep another Margaret Thatcher from ever assuming power.

I try not to get into arguments here, I prefer to express my opinion and let it go at that. I have looked at Paul web site and read his views on illegals, I largely agree with him. Personally I like “secure the borders and enforce the laws”. But what are you going to do with a young child brought here 10 or 20 years ago? So I am open to finding a solution for kids that grew up in the USA once the border is secure. I hope that does not make me a traitor in your eyes. I am totally opposed to Rubios gang of 8 plan.
