HuffPost - Rand Paul And Guns Stall Extension Of The Patriot Act

WASHINGTON -- Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) pledged during his run for office to be a veritable stick in the mud on issues of philosophical concern even if it meant agitating his fellow Congressional Republicans. Now, as the Senate rushes against the clock to pass an extension of the USA Patriot Act, he's living up to his word...


The article is a complete POS, but check out the comments section. Democrats are actually speaking up about their respect for Rand on this! Freedom is popular!

Thanks Eric, I hope more DPrs will

take the plunge over at HuffPo. It is not an unanimously anti-libertarian as previously, but the number of mindless partisans is still high.

Huffpo is too MSM for me

Occaisionally I will find myself reading something from Huffpo, However, I find Huffpo's articles are written to program it's readers. You can tell a Huffpo reader because they believe they are open, but all that means is they are open to discuss homosexuality, Abortion rights, atheism/agnostic/paganism and I find their politics geared to attract people working in government, or government grant funded businesses.

I Googled heeadline news (and Google is really spooky when it comes to a rights eating monster), anyways, I saw that Ron Paul is placing THIRD in the polls, behind Sarah Palin, who is not running.

Huffpo has a number of blogers, would be great if they had a Ron Paul blog, like Daily Paul link, especially since Ron Paul is Anti-war. But I don'rt see Huffpo doing Ron Paul or Libertarians any favors. They will continue to support Obama 100%.

I'm on there

I'm on there as James2039.

Are you in there? We need to make sure we're all fanning and favoriting all the pro Paul posts. It really does help.

Thank you for the compliment. It's been going really well and I've gotten a lot of opportunities for polite discourse and talking about how it's great that we've all found an issue to work together on.

This is a first

Huffposters have been tearing Rand Paul to shreds since even before he was elected.


It's crazy to see. I've won a ton of fans on there from the liberal side. Some of them are actually open to talking about things now!

My hopes are high at least, lets hope this lasts.

...just infuriate me! Most of them seem incapable of an original thought, and are merely regurgitating the spew the mainstream media has fed them about the Pauls. I'm so glad people like you, EricHoffer, have patience and diplomacy to talk to them and try to reason with them, and are winning fans.

:) we'll bring them all around, just takes time and patience... and in this case, a common enemy in the Patriot Act!
