Robert Wenzel's Open Letter To Libertarians: "Don't Be Fooled By Rand Paul"Submitted by Marc Clair on Wed, 11/28/2012 - 01:26
Interested in everyone's thoughts on this.
"There is a big difference between Ron Paul and Rand Paul that appears to be missed by many. Ron Paul was not hungry to be president of the United States. If he would have been hungry, he would have booted his grandson in-law and that entire gang out early on in the primaries when it was clear they were positioning themselves not to advance Ron Paul and liberty, but to advance their own careers. Ron Paul just wasn't that hungry to do that and be president. He was satisfied getting the libertarian message out.
Rand Paul is different. It appears that he wants to be president. Wanting to be president changes a man, wherever they start off from.
This was Rand at the start of his political career, on the Federal Reserve and Bilderberg.
After Rand settled in, this is what Rand did when questioned about Bilderberg.
Rand also enthusiastically endorsed elitist loser Mitt Romney. Remember this?
If you want to become president, you have one thing in mind, you need to get to 50.1% If you hold libertarian views and run on those views you are not going to be president. I dare anyone to run on completely libertarian principles and believe they are going to win. Go ahead. Tell voters you are in favor of legalizing heroin and LSD. Tell them that the U.S. government should default on its debt and relieve taxpayers of the burden. Tell them you want to end welfare and food stamps. Tell them you want to end the DEA, TSA, FDA, DOE, FAA, SEC, CFTC and the rest of the government alphabet soup agencies."
Tell them you want to end medicare. Tell them you don't want to fight Muslims, or anyone else, anymore. Go ahead, see how far you are going to get. As I have stated before, there is nothing wrong with running, as long as you stick to principles and lose. It can be a method of spreading libertarian views. Winning, given the current voter climate, is when you become suspect.
Rand Paul is about winning.
Every time I point out Rand moves that are away from liberty, I get emails and comments telling me I am too harsh on Rand. I received many again today because of this post (Scroll down to the comments).
