Israel Solution

Easy to produce.

constitutional US government --> individual makes more money than he makes presently --> can do to his money what he wants including giving it to someone, a someone who's located anywhere including on the terrain named Israel.

No force, coercion. No compulsion. No being compelled. Whoever wants to support whomever located wherever is fine. That's charity. Individual to individual freely, voluntarily. A and B, not C unless A and B invited C. Easy.

For humans outside Israel who support humans in Israel, now's your chance to prove it. Support constitutional US government so you can give or if you give so that you can give more than you do. US government giving to Israel government isn't charity and isn't without detriment. So, show what you're made of, show whether you're charitable, go help an Israeli. A, B, C. 1, 2, 3. Easy.

in b4 Rand goes full retard like Joe Biden

and says he's a "Zionist".

I'm not really stoked about Rand running for president in 2016. His father was the compromise, Rand is looking more like a LINO as each day passes.

Hmmm. He represents someone outside of Kentucky?

How much is a brainwash these days, how long will it take?

Free includes debt-free!

Interesting

The Libertarian will meet the traditional conservative (Binyamin Netanyahu) and the former socialist-progressive (President Shimon Peres.) At any rate, it would be of value for any Libertarian to learn how Israeli government is structured: 17 political parties in Congress, multi-party executive branch, ability of the Congress to disband the executive branch at any time with just 51% vote, etc.

Seventeen parties in

Seventeen parties in politics.

It looks as though you favor more than two parties, maybe even many parties. Do you think more than two parties in U.S. politics would cause the American who wants freedom to concern himself more with politics or less with politics?

Freedom: the condition where the individual lives how he wants and resolves problems with whom he has problems unless resolution can't be reached at which point court is used.

Tyranny: the condition the individual lives to what is outside himself.

i will laugh if he pulls a Romney and dons a yamukkah at the Wailing Wall. then i will vomit.

lawrence

Forget the yamukkah...

...but don't be surprised if his first public statement upon returning is "nah, I was mistaken, we need to DOUBLE our aid $$ to 'our greatest ally' Israel!!"

If he's there

to kiss the "Blarney Stone" for the cameras, he'll never get my vote.

he'll NEVER get my vote...

no matter what he kisses!

i'll pull a romney on him, too, and stay home

Barry visits Afghanistain,

it doesn't mean he wants to be friends, or will pander to their whims.
I believe this is a fact finding mission, first hand.

think about what you are saying...

with all due respect, do you REALLY believe that?

he is a State senator (with a small "s")...what the hell does going to freaking is-hate-real have to do with Kentucky?

he should go to eastern kentucky or up in the poor coal mining appalachians if he wants to help his State...not halfway around the god dang world to ANOTHER country filled with hate and oppression!

But why?

"We" just gave them $70 billion, if they want to meet, can't they come over here, or is that to much to ask?

I think you underestimate the numbers

"We" just gave them $170 Billions.
Some youtube clips uncovered $Trillions.

What if Rand Paul brings both sides together over there?

Can you imagine the impact?

Rand would beat a democrat in a landslide if he helps bring peace in the Middle East!

Have we already forgotten 'Randslide' win in KY?

Even so,

keep in mind that the Israeli government cares about the desires of the average Israeli about as much as the feds care about the desires of the average American.

Remember, this is the country that has threatened the entire planet with the Samson Option we're talking about here.

Also, polls can be skewed VERY easily, as we all know.

A signature used to be here!

This stinks guys!!!! What's

This stinks guys!!!! What's next? Bilderberg? This is bad y'all.

juan maldonado

Well, at least he's meeting

with the head of the Palestinian Authority and the
Jordanians, too.

I'm not a Rand fan at all, but we may as well wait and see
what he does there. It will be interesting to see what kind
of reception he gets there..

he gets a passing grade if he meets with

the Palestinians and tells the truth afterward.

:-)

Hard rope to walk on.
The Israeli lobby is strong and with super-pacs, your almost dead instantly if you do anything out side their perceived interests.

Look what happened to Ron just talking about there FED!
whoops did I slip and tell it like it is.

Just want what seems to be missing, Truth and Justice for ALL
What is fraud except creating “value” from nothing and passing it off as something?

I can not

understand why you equate an international trip between two sovereign nations as a "meeting with the Bilderbergers next on the list." It's just nonsensical.
