Cenk Uygur: I'd rather have Rand Paul in office than a typical corporatist Democrat

I got to give Cenk some credit here, not a lot of progressives I know of are open-minded and brave enough to think and say such a thing. Even though I don't agree with everything in the video kudos to him for not being a progressive robot stuck in the false left-right paradigm way of thinking.

I respect Cenk when he is being intellectually honest.

However, on the gun issue, he is not. As others have pointed out, the "popular view" is irrelevant. Gun control violates the Constitution. Cenk's arguments here would not even hold water if we did not have janet Napolitano and her Homeland Security NAZIs. However, Cenk is correct about the "silent filibuster." Rand and his allies are being cowardly on this issue.

He's not honest on the

Global Warming issue or on the Ron Paul racist newsletter issue.

Why, Cenk?

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

He does? That's sad. You'd

He does? That's sad. You'd think with the conversations he's had with Ron about war and peace that he'd consider Ron not a racist.

Why is he mentioning

what is popular? As if that decides where we stand on issues?

Background checks meaning....what exactly?

A federal registry of all gun owners? Bad idea and violation of our liberty.

The video is not completely positive...

maybe that is why someone downvoted this thread, but I just appreciate someone on the left saying such a thing because you don't hear it too often, so many are stuck in extreme hyperpartisan mode and being part of the Democrat team.

I respect Cenk's analysis and opinion, even though I don't agree on them all.

My current estimate on the dollars and cents damage to TPTB Senator Rand Paul did with his filibusterer has increased to $350 billion.
