Justin Raimondo: Rand Paul is quickly losing my support

@JustinRaimondo:

@SenRandPaul is quickly losing my support: http://www.politico.com/story/2014/07/rand-paul-israel-midea... … Israel _and_ Ukraine? Too much even for me, I regret to say.

I agree with Raimondo

What galls me more than anything is that Ron's 2012 campaign was torpedoed for this NWO butt sniffer.

Famous Quote from Justice William O. Douglas

"The Constitution is not neutral.
It was designed to take the government
off the backs of people."

actually

that's an old tweet. Raimondo has gone back and forth on Rand. I'm not sure what his current position is, maybe he doesn't know either.

Too bad Rand missed this

enlighten us

or will you simply keep making statements with no back up? and if you do have sources you might direct them to the person who made the thread you're referring to, and who did say "not your usual kind of power" and that would be fishyculture who has racked up 23 up votes which makes your 1 down vote for me look rather weak, besides, down voting someone who is only seeking some substance to your claim is rather telling. i suggest you return to that thread and make your case (since this thread is about Raimondo/Rand).

Salvation will never come

Salvation will never come through a politician or the political process anyway, so I don't really care.

We don't matter....

We are what, 3% of the population? If Rand worried most about what we think, he wouldn't be there, and wouldn't be making any difference.

The US citizenry is a cesspool.

They will only elect a turd.

Leges sine moribus vanae

On the bright side...

that tweet only reached 7,580 people lol big whoop. All these 'libertarian holier than thous' as I like to call them is the reason we'll never build a large coalition. Rand is anti-war and he's pulling a fast one on Republican leadership. Duhhh

another view

"After hearing Paul condemn past interventions based on trumped-up threats, remind his colleagues about the ever-present risk of unintended consequences, and insist that the burden of proof should be on those who advocate war, it is easy to forget that he actually supports this war, although he disagrees with Obama about how to conduct it. Paul says "ISIS is now a threat to us," although in his 6,700-word speech this is the closest he comes to explaining why: "If ISIS is left to its own devices, maybe they will fulfill what they have boasted of and attack our homeland." That is also the closest that Obama comes to justifying this war; Paul's admirers might have expected more from a man who talks so much about the dangers of foreign intervention.
"Notably, while Paul just a few weeks ago was saying war must be justified by "a threat to our national security" (which he wasn't sure ISIS posed), he is now willing to settle for a threat to "American interests," which can mean whatever an advocate of war says it means."

If Rand didn't pose a legitimate threat to the establishment

the establishment wouldn't be trying to make this change in Iowa :

Ron Swanson

Does anyone remember the positions

that Obama took during his campaign in order to gain enough support from the masses to win an election ? His anti war , anti spying, limited executive power ???? Then what happened , he returned to his fundamental/core beliefs as repugnant as they may be. That's how anyone gets elected. Some people on here want him to mirror Ron Paul's campaign's and get the complete opposite results. That's just lunacy IMO.

Ron Swanson

tasmlab's picture

I don't believe he was ever anti-war

He just said he'd put the focus back on Afghanistan instead of Iraq IIRC.

In his book "Audacity of Hope" (which I read) he didn't seem to have any anti-war sentiment.

Many of his supporters projected liberal values onto him though, and continue to do so despite an ocean of contradicting evidence against it.

Currently consuming: Morehouse's "Better off free", FDR; Wii U; NEP Football

Awesome use of the term "liberal"!

Thank you.

Rand Paul Drafts a Declaration of War. This is getting beyond silly.

we're talking two

different declarations, besides Rand has said he supports the airstrikes, just not supplying the rebels with weapons, and he wants congress's approval, hence his own declaration. he also wants to get all aggressive with Putin, maybe you missed his Time piece?

Rand never voted for airstrikes. In fact, he just voted against air strikes.

i didn't say he voted

"The senator disappointed his fringe, libertarian followers with his support of airstrikes. Can he play the game in Washington and still keep their loyalty?"
http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/09/19/rand-paul-s...
he voted against it because it included arms for rebels, but he supports the airstrikes. listen when he's on the right side of something imo like his recent support for opening the door wider with cuba i applaud him, but i am against airstrikes period, like his dad.

Rand voted against the

Rand voted against the airstrikes. That does not sound like support of airstrikes.

Thomas Jefferson 1800, 1804; James Madison 1808, 1812; Rand Paul 2016, 2020.

have it your way

i guess all those times he said he does support the airstrikes he was just lying,not to mention his talk of destroying IS because they are a "national threat." it will be interesting to see how he votes on his own declaration.

Clearly you don't understand the purpose of Rand

drafting that declaration of war. It wasn't to get an actual declaration of war.

Ron Swanson

Clearly you assume too much

"Sen. Paul is being too clever by half with this 'limited' declaration of war," says Justin Raimondo, the libertarian editorial director of Antiwar.com, a prominent online gathering place for anti-interventionists.
“I understand what he's trying to do – reclaim the power to declare war from the executive and limit the scope of a conflict that's already ongoing – but this strategy is likely to backfire and simply open the door to a wider war,” Raimondo says.
“Paul's attempt to limit the introduction of ground troops will never hold,” he adds.

By the looks of the latest polls

Justin isn't the only one losing faith in Rand, i.e. McClatchy/Marist, CNN/ORC

Justin has let his anti-Israel bias pervert his libertairanism

No libertarian should have any problem with the concept of stopping the funding to Hamas and/or getting out of the middle east and not trying to make Israel do or not do something.

Best thing the US can do is let the people in the middle east settle things on their own because peace can never be forced.
