It is becoming increasingly hard to see Rand Paul as any sort of a "liberty" candidate in 2016. In the past two years, he has sometimes moved "freedomward" in his votes in the Senate, and he has also held up especially noxious and vile bills under consideration, but he has folded most pathetically quite a few times during merely his first two years!
He hasn't been anywhere nearly as strong demanding an END to sanctions and embargoes by the US government around the world, renormalizing relations with, and closing military bases (and CIA outposts)in other countries overseas, demanding the abolition of the hideous Homeland Security apparatus with its TSA spawn from hell, the complete and undeniable right of State or local interposition and/or secession against Federal/NWO tyranny, ending the horrid Income Tax and replacing it with NOTHING (The Federal government spends far too much money anyhow, whether it is raised from an income tax OR a consumption tax!), his weird flip-flopping on NDAA, one day denouncing it, and the next day voting for it, and so on.
While I hope that Rand Paul will regain his libertarian bearings, and begin to do his father proud in the US Senate, I stand by my statement made elsewhere in the DP that we have to begin the search, and the grooming of someone better.
If he, or anybody, is such a spineless jellyfish when confronted by the criminal elements of our society in the US Senate, could you imagine how passive and surrendering he would be in the Oval Office, where he is much MORE isolated from the American people?
PEACE AND FREEDOM!!
