Why I won't be supporting Rand.Submitted by sgray on Thu, 06/27/2013 - 18:11
Without a doubt Sen. Paul is one of the only liberty minded senators and seemingly one of our only allies within the Federal Government. However it's statements like these that reaffirm the fact that he will always bow to religious fundamentalists, traditionalists and even neo-cons before he lifts a finger for liberty. It's easy to give great speeches on the Senate floor, we've got a president who did just that. He promotes centralized social engineering, there's no other way to describe it.
If you don't get that Government has no business in dictating the private lives of individuals and that one of the few jobs of the state (if there must) is to protect those voluntary contracts between individuals, not to make them illegal.
Rand is using the liberty movement as a pawn, thinking we'll be his army, taking marching orders like we're some kind of leftist collective.
No thanks, I don't like voting away my consent to be ruled, especially from someone who appears to be such a fraud. He's certainly not the "real deal," he just says sort of the right thing occasionally.
