hardly call Rand neocon-lite, he isn't hawkish in the least. The penny plan isn't a bad plan, Dr. Paul wanted to balance the budget in 2-3 years. This is way more austerity then he could ever get support for from congress or most of the people. Look at how these people are screaming about sequestration and it's a pathetic cut in the rate of growth. Rand voted "NO" for NDAA the military spending bill. Rand doesn't even want to make military money selling old fighter jets to Egypt. He did vote for one of those rounds of sanctions on Iran, however I haven't looked at what exactly they entailed so I can't judge too harshly on that yet. Although, sanctions are bad umm-kay.
The bold effort the present bank had made to control the government ... are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it-Andrew Jackson
