Great job, Rand. Today, Egypt. Tomorrow, everyone else....

including Israel. No drones either. Nothing.

And...

the neocons and Israel are very very pleased. The neocons are very battered and were almost down and out. Rand to the rescue...

The neocons are pleased?

Nuh-uh. Heh heh heh, many of them hate his guts. And they will never trust him:

If you are not catching flak, you are not over the target.

trust?

i'd say a lot of folks don't trust him.

it was still a statement to

it was still a statement to the military industrial complex

What message?

That Israel is now freer to expand geographically towards their goal of Greater Israel and will need to order more equipment to cover the new territory?

Greater Israel = Eretz Israel = the biblical "from the euphrates to the river of egypt(nile)"which includes large portions of Egypt, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Syria and all of Jordan

i'm not a fan to giving

i'm not a fan to giving weapons to israel. but i want the miltary industrial complex to get hurt all the way.

Ron Paul said the u.s.

Ron Paul said the u.s. government gave 5 times as much to israel's enemies.

That's munitions for the military industrial complex to peddle off to other governments.

if i were a "liberal" and

if i were a "liberal" and stuck in the false left-right paradigm, i would wonder why all the democrats wanted to send F-16s and Tanks to Egypt. And i would wonder why 19- all republicans wanted to stop this. Even Ted Cruz and Mark Rubio voted Nay. That's pretty positive, even though i wouldn't expect consistency from Rubio. And maybe Ted Cruz, even though he's probably fake.. still is showing some promise.

re: Ted Cruz

His name gets thrown around quite a bit, but almost nobody seems sure of the guy. Heard his wife was in with Goldman-Sachs though...but that doesn't necessarily mean anything by itself.

Dug up this old thread.

I'm not sure what to make of him just yet, either. Gotta ask around more.

That was great to hear.

That was great to hear. Today Rand Paul was Ron Paul's son.

He obviously had a very nice trip to Israel

I'd imagine they explain why senators become multimillionaires on those freshman trips. And probably a bit about who the real boss is. Rand is doing well and will serve them well it seems. I know quite a few people who think their dads are nuts; maybe here's one more.

The vote was bad, but FINALLY

The vote was bad, but FINALLY I sense a turning in all of this. Most all of the conservative commentators and media personalities are with US on this matter. The relationship between the MIC and the Political Class will soon be exposed for what it is ...Adverse to the interests of the American people. Rand comes out of this as a hero.

The Yea votes were to table (kill) the amendment.

Rubio is a "Ney" - he must be getting nervous about all the

attention his competition is receiving.

Reality CHECK PEOPLE!!!

It has nothing to do with Christian/Jew/Muslim crap.

It has nothing to do with evil government this or that!

It has to do with the HOLY DOLLAR, EXPORTS and Sacraficial MURDER at the alter of Molech!

Alotta money, death and instability in them there tanks and aircraft.

aye

It's all about the Bennybux, the rest is a smokescreen.

Surprise, Surprise

Senate just rejected the legislation 79-19.

I swear that Rand is the only

I swear that Rand is the only senator up there that has a lick of sense. Only a fool would send weapons to a country that is as unfriendly and unstable as egypt is right now.

I know, right?

I was just going to post that he seems like the only Senator that is worth keeping, period. Who am I missing?

Rand is such a goober! Why is

Rand is such a goober! Why is it ok to give Israel money for weaponry, but not ok to sell this weaponry to Egypt? End aid to both! So sick of this Christian Zionist nonsense.

Ehhhh

I mean its not ok for either but one country at a time and lets start with the obviously unstable ones.

"Once you become knowledgeable, you have an obligation to do something about it."- Ron Paul

Israel is a stable one?

Israel is a stable one? Israel is the source of most of the instability in the Middle East!

He wants too.... what he is

He wants too.... what he is doing is trying to get a bill passed. It's called practical politics. Rand created a Fox News talking point of not aiding the enemies.

Cutting aid to everyone won't pass, so why not go country by country and try to drum up support for cutting aid to each one individually. It is now a MSM rep talking point to end giving aid to egypt. Go watch O'reilly, Hannity, and Greta and they are all constantly bringing this up.

See Rand is trying to push his ideas into the mainstream media.

Why not try to get things passed instead of just debating things like Ron Paul did forever. Don't get me wrong, Ron Paul is amazing and he forever changed my life, but he never got anything done. Rand is trying to get things done by going step by step.

This is a very smart strategy and is exactly what I would be doing if I was in the Senate.

excuse me

"he never got anything done" did you really say that?
i could write for an hour on this but i'll let you off easy he put libertarian philosophy on the map. this site wouldn't be here. we wouldn't be having this exchange. his message goes world wide and grows every day despite the sellouts.
the fed. no one has done more to bring this monster into focus.

now your boy rand IMO knew darn well this wouldn't pass, but did it to rack up brownie points with the gullible.

the MSM is the establishment, the status quo. they will do what they are told, like they did with ron paul.
stop watching hannity etc. good grief

i hope you're right...

but this BS about "cutting aid to our enemies, first" sounds like a preparation to keep foreign aid for a few "special"foreign nations. That is, if we ever cut a dime
