Rand - Mitt Romney for president - Paul is poison

I keep saying it. I will continue to warn everyone I can. This man is not one of us. He is not his father. He is not even a shadow of his father. His agenda is not liberty. His agenda is president Rand. And no the two agendas are not commingled. The liberty agenda is a tool Rand is using to achieve his goal - political power. Rand has seen firsthand the power and potency of the grassroots movement his father has created. Rand aims to harness this burgeoning political force. After all, he's in on the ground level. The liberty agenda is a means to an end for him. That is how he will use it. I admit I could be wrong about this. Someday I hope I will have to admit I spoke out of school. But I can see no other way to read his actions.

For the crowd that seeks to rationalize and give cover for Rand's mounting pile of lies, double speak, betrayals and displays of poor judgement, I offer this analogy:

Picture a young woman that works as a prostitute to make money to fund her missionary work promoting the gospel of Christ. This is in essence what the Rand apologists say that Rand is doing. He is in bed with, promoting, making deals with, aiding and abetting, the enemies of liberty - all for the purpose of promoting liberty! Brilliant! How does that work? It doesn't work. It only exposes Rand as a fraud. It only destroys his credibility. At best it dilutes the message. At worst it renders the message incoherent. This is the gospel message carried on the lips of an unrepentant prostitute. So much rubbish. This is Rand Paul.

Expect Rand to continue to apparently do good things for the liberty movement during his time as Senator. This is is M.O. The tea party libertarian. This is his schtick. This is how he hopes to con the next generation of would be conservatives, just like the neocons enslaved the well meaning but naive and jingoistic would be conservatives before us. In the end Rand will reveal that he is for sale, again and again. His apologists will keep pointing to this good bill he wrote and that good vote he gave and make the "he's the best that we've got and he's working stealth" plea.

But he isn't one of us. He's just a whore.

Hear! Hear!

More and more I'm becoming convinced Rand is either not too bright... or he's just another slimeball.

Regarding Whores

I don't seek to denigrate whores. Political whores (the entire American political class) are the creatures I speak ill of.

There is no such thing as a

There is no such thing as a Christian Zionist.

A Zionist is Jewish, as the law of return that is only for Jews.

You can be a supporter of Zionists and not be Jewish, but saying someone is a Christian Zionist would be like calling a black man a white racist.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Zionism is a political philosophy...

Anybody can be a zionist. It just means you support Israel's reclamation of Israel's ancient political boundaries.

Many christians zionists also have the religious goal of fulfilling prophecy which, unfortunately for Israel, many christian zionists believe that at some point all jews in Israel must convert to christianity or die.

Shhh! Don't tell these people!

They've gone to a lot of fuss to promote it. I guess they are like Palestinians. They don't exist either, I hear.

A real christian zionist himself or pretending to be a friend of

voting christian zionists. (His wife IS a minister, isn't she?) Either way, his action in the middle east leaves sour taste. . . and dampens the willingness for a large part of the grassroots to plunge into an all-out campaign mode for Rand.

If his Wife is a minister,

and follows the Apostate teachings of the Scofield Reference Bible, where the blasphemous theory of Zionism originates, Rand is a Zionist, and will never get my vote! I just can't believe how ignorant people are who claim to be Christian, and can't see how many Scriptures of direct Christ quotes, completely contradicts anything about Zionism. The Holy Land of Christ is where ever his followers reside, which is the entire world, and the Holy Land of Palestine only becomes his concern when the anti-Christ returns. Read Revelations 2:9 abd 3:9, which proves the people who are occupying Palestine are deceivers of Satan, whether they know it or not. Watch this excellent documnetary by We Hold These Truths and Strait Gate Ministries, which will destroy the hoax of Christian Zionism. http://vimeo.com/29901084

Let's be honest here, Rand is

Let's be honest here, Rand is working on a presidential run in 2016. There's no question about it. Part of a winning strategy is the christian vote and there's no doubt Rand has been making some headway in this regard. If it's not obvious now, it will be at CPAC. Rand still has the best liberty record in the US Senate, and will be the best presidential candidate, unless Ron Paul himself is running.

Rand is...

playing with fire!

Israel destroys the lives, careers of and even assassinates people who defy Israel's political ambitions.

Israel Complicit in Global State Terrorism

Here, is an article by Jewish Progressive Stephen Lendman, who points out a new pampley by International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network (IJAZN), that backs your point. http://rense.com/general95/iscomplicit.html

Has jumped the shark a long time ago.

Oh dear

Your Neocon is showing.

Sorry, I was just happy to

Sorry, I was just happy to see you.

Lol! Sen. Rand Paul (R-Gooberville)

That was funny! And calls him a "libertarian". Rand is playing to his "Gooberville" base. Who knows what he would do if he got into office. Would he pull a switcheroo and carry out his father's ideas? Right now, I think not. I don't trust him fully and will watch him in the coming years to see if he is worthy of my support.

I'm in watch mode, too - I've got years.

I actually found this link more disturbing than the article, though:

Who's he carrying water for? Why go over and be a jerk to the Palestinians?

I'm playing "the brownie game" in my mind. He had earned a couple brownies on his plate recently, but they are gone now. It's going to take a stack of them to win my support, but he has time, I have time... Empty plate, today though.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.
