It is crystal clear to me who

It is crystal clear to me who the enemy is. Many of them were in that room.

Rand knows how the brain works... yah see,

the brain is split into three forms of thinking; a lower reptillian brain for thinking about essential needs like sex and war... this is the place that the Crypto-Commies inhabit.(everyone in the room except Rand)

Then there is the emotional barrier between the reptilian and mammalian brains that acts to trigger anxiety or fear... which Rand triggers well here hoping to get the reptiles to think their rhetoric is question-able with emotional issues. (Rand is acting like a liberal)

Then there is the mammalian brain (neo-cortex/Libertarian brain) that forms reason by thinking through the logistics of how to incite emotions from the emotional brain to stop the need thinking reptiles from superseding the newly evolved want of knowledge trough learning. (This is where Rand Paul stands alone... as he is clearly standing on an emotional cloud striking crocodiles down with wit lightning stimulating their cowardice fear.)

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.

Fascinated watching Rand thread the needle

I marvel at Rand's ability to appear to be all-in with the dominant War Party thinking....except for a few small problems that confuse him....and then BAM! he points out the massive contradictions at the very core of their thinking.

After Dennis Ross's fiasco in Iraq 10 years ago, why the hell would anybody listen to him today?


It's kind of disappointing to see him lecture/explain and try to influence a bunch of bureaucrats that are only determined to go to war.

It's like trying to convince a wall not to be a wall.

I think those he is talking to are the wrong people in those positions. They just don't care to listen to Rand.

Wow, that was really interesting.

Yes, our foreign policy is a mess and very confusing!


Sounds a lot like his dad...

and that is a very nice thing to see.
