Rand Paul: The Libertarians’ “I Love Lucy”Submitted by McWilly on Thu, 05/23/2013 - 14:35
It really seems as if a day doesn’t go by in which libertarians look at the actions of Rand Paul and say to themselves, “Rand, you got some ‘splainin’ to do!!”
The man seems to constantly bungle what one would think are straightforward issues that his father’s views were very clear on (interventionism) and that we had formerly believed Rand shared. On one hand he filibusters against drone attacks and for the right to habeas corpus, endearing himself to liberty-minded folk. Then, he turns around and states that, “any attack on Israel will be treated as an attack on the United States.” The man is constantly junking up the bon-bon manufacturing line, and undoing the good will that he builds up almost immediately every single time. He’s becoming a sitcom character with presidential aspirations.
Rand’s latest gaffe and treason against non-interventionism is signing off on the new Iran Sanctions, which as we all know, will only hurt the populace of Iran and turn them against us even further – a precursor to war.
