Is anyone else NOT mad at Rand?

He didn't switch positions. He supported drone strikes in an "imminent threat".
This even fits the libertarian position. Why are we listening to Foreign Policy magazine? Do we listen to The Economist? Do we listen to Salon.com?

It seems the establishment is trying to create conflict out of nothing.

Me.

I'm not mad at Rand.

Free market capitalism isn't right for America because it works better. It's right because it's free (and it works better).

The Drudge Report went into full attack mode.

I find THAT more interesting than what he said, although what he said is mildly interesting.

A drone is merely a weapon, just like an airplane, a missile, and a machine gun, all of which can be used to serve justice.

A looter fleeing the scene of the crime SHOULD face justice, but killing them with any of the above is not justice.

It's injustice by our own standards. It's an execution. He misspoke, and misspeaking to that degree makes me wonder if he's capable of using any drone, plane, missile, or machine gun to serve justice.

I agree

and I think those who are hypercritical of him need to decide what the purpose of a liberty movement is.

If it is just a reason to have streetcorner meetings and another facet of their infowars-coffeehouse-college lifestyle, then sure, go ahead and slam Rand Paul.

If you actually care about liberty in this country, you might want to think about supporting him.

I am sure that a lot of his critics would also criticize Ron Paul if they carefully thought about his approaches and positions over the years!

No way, NoZe

The purpose of the so-called "liberty movement" is to cut Social Security and Medicare. That's why the Pauls were sent by the central bankers to dupe the youth. You'll see the Pauls pretend to fight for freedom, like Rand's failed filibuster, but the end result will always be that you win nothing. You will keep paying your taxes, while Rand and Cruz and Lee and the rest of the austerity gang give you less of your tax money back in the form of Social Security and Medicare benefits. Like when you donate to a Paul campaign, all that comes out of it is a better-paying job for Jesse Benton.

Hey Look Rand Paul said this

3 hours later. Good job me.
