Rand Is Not Going Neocon! Stop The Nonsense!Submitted by lordindra3 on Fri, 10/18/2013 - 01:43
I swear, it is so obvious that people, like the liberty brethren that posted the thread about the Foreign Policy magazine article, has already long made up their mind about Rand and simply look for evidence to validate their feelings and like humans in nature, try to convert others to agree....
Rand has NOT gone neocon. If you read his careful words, he is trying to do the RIGHT thing and broaden his appeal. The ONLY way he can win, as he is a smarter politician than his father and Dad admits it, is to appeal to audiences outside the loyal base.
First he uses the famous Republican phrase from demi God Reagan, "peace through strength" to apeal to a crowd who are lured and loyal to this Reagan phrase by correctly desiphering what it actually means. This phrase is my BIGGEST pet pieve when neo cons use it as a bumper sticker to emptly defend their cause. But how can peace through strength mean war everywhere, wwhen they forget the word PEACE in the phrase? Rand is correctly uses it. He is trying to show that we Constitutionalist GOP Libertarians are not pacifist hippie vegan p****s. That we do believe in a strong defense, but that its used only when declared or when attacked. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT?
The part that I admit irks me as well is his Israel butt kissing. I CANT STAND IT, but I do get it. Bill Graham, the nation's most powerful protestant leader spoke his mind about Jews in America to Nixon and both Nixon and Billy Graham had to (real quote) "get on their knees to the Rabbis and beg forgiveness". The bottom line is that Zionist leaning elite ARE THE RULING CLASS in every sector. But that shows further evidence that Rand is actually meaning what hes saying and not just saying empty words about peace when talking about war (like neo cons McCain, Graham, Rubio, etc) because even with the butt kissing, Rand is still hated by the Jewish elite in this country! THis is because the Jewish elite in this country sees through Paul and knows Rand isnt actually their puppet (Rand believe it or not, has a similar record to Ron in that Rand doesnt give into lobbyists), but Rand's words in articles like this give Rand reasonable doubt cover if the Jewish Elite try to truly whipe him out politically, because they cant point to specific times where they can say "see, Rand is a anti semite, he said no blood for Israel!"
Also people in our movement hate Rand because they think hes a sellout (ironically their only evidence is one single Iran sanction vote and quotes from interviews that are unambiguous, but never any solid evidence or substantive patterns in voting records) are also people who tend to (rightly IMO) believe that the Syrian war and the US siding with Al Qaeda proves that Neocons dont actually care about terrorism or Al Qaeda, but use it as a boogy man for the American people. Evidence that this is true about neocons and that Neocons true loyalty is for Israel, is that AIPAC continually lobbys for war mongering when it on the surface looks like it goes against Israels intuitive interests (ie giving tanks to Egypt under Morsi, or supporting to destabalize the most secular government in the middle east and let Al Qaeda take over), yet if Rand was a real sell out, he would vote with AIPAC all the time like McCain and Graham and the newbie Tom Cotton and Rubio does... But Rand doesnt because he is giving himself plausible deniability for the behind the curtains power elite and also showing how our philosophy does not necessarily conflict with true conservatism (not neo conservatism which is diametrically opposed). Rand is a political genius and in the end should be thanked for single handedly making the Paul political philosophy to the mainstream. Liberty brothers and sisters, wake up! Libertarianism has been around since the 60s and has been nothing but a marginalized fringe movement. Ron paved the way and Rand is reaching the goal of achieving our dreams the best thats possible in America's hypnotized population.
