Rand Paul's Neocon Vision For The Empire

HuffPo has a piece on Rand Paul's views regarding the shutting down of U.S. military bases on foreign soil.
“I’m not saying don’t have any,” he said. "I'm just saying maybe not 900. I mean, I’d rather have one at Fort Campbell and Fort Knox than one in Timbuktu.”
And it turns out Paul is not opposed to keeping military bases in Iraq, or in that part of the world, for the foreseeable future...

"Some libertarians argue that Western occupation fans the flames of radical Islam -– I agree," Paul said in that speech. "But I don’t agree that absent Western occupation that radical Islam 'goes quietly into that good night.'”
So Rand knows that occupation fans the flames...But seems to think that he has the recipe for the precise amount of fanning that needs to be done.

And what of Rand's views on Radical Islam?

Well, back in Feb. (prior to the #StandWithRand-palooza), Justin Raimondo wrote a scathing piece, called Rand Paul’s War Against “Radical Islam”. It makes me wonder, what does Rand have to do? What does he have to say? How far does he have to stray from the ideas of Liberty for libertarians to throw in the towel?

Only extremists...

criticize Rand! People who are for shutting down all of our foreign bases and who want to get rid of the fiat dollar and who don't view Israel as our #1 ally are UNREASONABLE EXTREMIST KOOKS!***

***(the basic message of the neocons and the same criticisms of Ron from the neocons, the neoleft and the mainstream media)

~wobbles but doesn't fall down~

The CFR continues it's 'split Rand away from Ron' strategy!

ANYTHING ABOUT RAND TODAY, if con and not pro, should be considered NOT just in the light of the subject matter, but more so in the light of the disinformation war being waged by the Neocon puppet handlers of the Fed, the CFR, and all their minions!

THEY NEED RAND TO FAIL, and to fall away from liberty support entirely!


Because Rand Paul knows their tactics of the past, their ability to sway the masses, to use propaganda and disinformation because that is what the couch potatoes eat while entranced!

Rand is using their moves past in his chess game!

It will not be easy to straddle the fence of ideas and keep all factions, including the couch potato masses of voters, on board until we need to nominate a liberty candidate!

It will not be easy because the CFR minions are gnashing their teeth, furious that Rand and Jesse are playing and beating them at their own game!

Say what you want about Rand

but he's a helluva lot better than most in the Senate.

That's not saying much!

that site

i take that site with a grain of salt

seems he is a fan and yet every article mentioning the paul's is an attack piece

seems early to throw in the towel on candidates as we don't have a lot of guys/gals who even claim to be on our side

the debate over rand is good, the anger and flamethrowers that come out

debate is good,,,, and anger too maybe it tells the candidate that they took a step to far

i find myself wishing ron paul was 20 years younger or we would have woke up earlier to going down the crapper


Very true
