Comment: Rand Paul - Benedict Arnold

(See in situ)


Rand Paul - Benedict Arnold

Rand Paul will no sooner carry on the legacy of the principled, honorable Ron Paul than William Franklin carried on Benjamin Franklin's legacy.

"Ignoring instructions from (Benedict) Arnold to involve no one else in the plot, Stansbury crossed the British lines and went to see Jonathan Odell in New York. Odell was a Loyalist working with William Franklin, the last colonial governor of New Jersey and >>the son of Benjamin Franklin.<< On May 9, Franklin introduced Stansbury to Major André, who had just been named the British spy chief. This was the beginning of a secret correspondence between Arnold and André, sometimes using his wife Peggy as a willing intermediary, that culminated over a year later with Arnold's change of sides." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benedict_Arnold)

Was William Franklin like the honorable Patriot, Benjamin Franklin? NO.

You can replace the name "Benedict Arnold" in the above with the name "Mitt Romney" and replace "William Franklin" with "Rand Paul"

“It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie...the greatest enemy of the State.” ~Joseph Goebbels
