OK, OK fine. Everything he said about foreign aid was good.

But why the "Stand With Israel" title?

That is dangerous and disingenuous because I don't think Rand really believes his own statement about our supporting Israel with billions of aid each year.

I see what he's up to, but it will backfire and to the uninformed will make Rand seem like a big supporter of Israel which if we won, he'd either have to live up to or admit he was lying - neither of which is a very good choice.

Does anyone here really believe that "Standing with Israel" is a big passion of Rand's. I don't think so.

Is THAT why he ran for senate? I don't think so.

I liked Ron's message better; He said "We give Israel 3 billion dollars a year and then we give her enemies 3 times that much."

That really drove home the point of the wrong-headedness of foreign aid.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
