Rand Paul Right on BPSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Sat, 05/22/2010 - 14:10
While all the liberals, progressives and socialists are out in force trying to use the tragic accident on the oil rig Deepwater Horizon as an excuse to bash BP (NYSE:BP), business and the oil industry, Rand Paul is one of the few voices of sanity calling out from the political wilderness that the response of their demi-god Obama in saying he's going to keep his foot on the throat of BP is inappropriate and "un-American," and he's right of course.
The attempt to bring and demand perfection in any human endeavor, no matter what type it is is ridiculous and unattainable, as any sane, healthy and honest person will admit. All that happens when government steps in in the way Obama has is to make things more expensive and harder to do, and usually the endless number of regulations will have unintended consequences which do more harm overall than good.
Big government-loving liberals, progressives and socialists are now using this as an attempt to derail Rand Paul's run to be the senator from Kentucky because they know he will be one of their worst political nightmares, like his dad Ron Paul is, because he'll vote against the majority of the policies which only grow government larger, destroy the moral fabric of the nation, and turn more and more toward socialism and crony capitalism than ever before in our history.
All they're trying to do is paint Paul as a kook, because these kooks don't want to be found out for what they are, and as the tactics they use dictate to them, they never want to waste a tragedy or incident to further and promote their agenda.
They also know Rand Paul is highly popular in Kentucky, and leads their Democratic opponent as much as he led and beat his Republican opponent in the primary.
This is just noise and sound bites they're throwing out in a way they hope the public will start to believe based on nothing else than repetition.
Rand Paul is right about BP. The response is way over the top by the Obama administration and his media lapdogs, and BP is doing everything they can to stop the oil leak and start to clean it up.
What these people are doing is taking the opportunity to make so much noise that the idea of continuing to drill offshore oil will be disallowed. That's not going to happen, but that's part of their agenda.
