1 Rand Paul on Thu 8 Feb - 22:57

How do all these weak wussy little men find their way into politics. He gets his asz kicked by a neighbor, yet he had no problem passing a 1.5 trillion deficit tax bill and now the lawnmower fighter is shutting down this nation. Daddy's coat tails carried him into our national awareness with his fake doctor degree and inconsistent political theories......what a weak knee wussy. How does this happen in America. Trump in reality has more integrity than Paul.

Well I think that's taking things more than a little too far, though the two or them certainly might be rivals in the moron department.

As usual, Rand Paul is acting like a narrow-minded one-tune idiot with a Napoleon complex. He most definitely needs to be GONE as he's actually becoming dangerous. Vote him out, Kentuckians!! He's disgusting.

Rand Paul reminds me of the right-wing version of a certain type of hippie -- he complains a lot because he knows he's safe from actually being listened to. He knows Republicans will still pass their big spending bill anyway, so he gets to hold forth a while and pretend to be Mr. Integrity. He'll get to go around saying "None of this is my fault, if they listened to me, blah-blah-blah"... while knowing nobody's going to heed him, and his theories will never actually get a chance to fail. He'll get all the benefits of the overspending while still maintaining "purity." Rolling Eyes

Meanwhile, it is kind of fun watching one of their own point out that the Republican myth of "we're the party of fiscal responsibility" is a bunch of B.S. O' course, Paul tries to throw a lot of "both-sides-ism" in there on top of it to cover up the fact that the Democrats have a better record than Republicans do. Both are bad about it, but the GOP's a good deal worse. That'd get int he way of Paul's scolding, though.

Anyway, it's mostly a silly stunt, but it is kinda fun to watch. And it's not hard to understand why his neighbor would want to knock the slobber out of the little putz.

Well, ya'll can sit here and lambast the man, run him down, call him a Nazi or an ignoramus ... whatever makes ya feel better about yourself, but personally I don't have a lot of issues with Rand Paul as a person.    One may not agree with everything he might say or stand for, and he's prob a little too tipsy on Ayn Rand and some other writers ..... but personally I think  he's earnest, well-intentioned, and got plenty of integrity and some guts too.

Even if in the end he often kowtows to the will of the Party or certain of the various caucuses (as they all have to sometimes), we need a few Rand Pauls in the Congress to help keep 'em honest ... just like we need a few Elizabeth Warrens.

The man is an Opthamalogist .... eye surgeon specifically. Graduated medical school at Duke. I wasn't aware Duke University was handing out fake medical degrees. You got a link for that?

Listen 'Oatie' .... it's fine to disagree with a politician or political perspective ... but you're kind of unfairly running Rand down. I don't mind when people want to run some politician down (whether it's one I like or not) .... what I don't like & will call out is when people just make shit up. I think if you tried you could find plenty to say about Rand Paul without having to tell lies.
You're just being intellectually lazy.

As to his political career, I'd say his a pretty self-made man in that regard too.   It's not unusual for a son to follow in a father's foot steps or even be influenced by his father's ideology (i.e.  MD, politician, libertarian)   That particular little factoid doesn't make him evil, bad, a fake, stupid or anything else really ... it just makes him human (however much one may disagree with his ideas or perspective)  

As to coat-tail riding .... lots of people have gotten into politics partly due to the influence of a relative, friend, or business associate  ... that doesn't necessarily mean they rode their coattails and were carried into office upon no merit of their own.

Actually I'd like to see some of Paul's neighbors in Congress to make sure the little shitweasel keeps being honest.

To recap: the Five Minute Rule states that any member of the Paul family will make sense on any political issue for exactly five minutes. Precisely at the 5:00:01 mark, however, he will say something so far off the rails that you will find yourself looking at him as though he has sprouted a reptilian head out of his sternum.
—Charles P. Pierce[87]

It seems that diarrhea of the mouth runs in the Paul family.[note 1][88] Consider some of the comments that he made within a few days of his Senate nomination:

On May 11th, 2011, Rand Paul stated that a right to health care equals slavery for health care workers, since you now "have a right to come to my house and conscript me" and "have a right to beat down my door with the police, escort me away and force me to take care of you."[89] He has a point, enslaved doctors are a really big problem in Canada.
The weekend before he was nominated, Rand said he wouldn't mind seeing a repeal of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), one of America's few bragging rights, because it is unfair to businesses.[90]

(lots more)

Unless, of course, you're a woman:

“The right to be left alone is the most cherished of rights,” Kentucky senator and presidential aspirant Rand Paul said over the weekend in San Francisco. He was there to sell himself to the young tech elite as a civil-liberties crusader; the only candidate willing to take an uncompromising stand against government surveillance. He cares so deeply about privacy that he’s planning to filibuster the renewal of parts of the Patriot Act.

But the leader of “the leave-me-the-hell-alone coalition” is simultaneously, albeit more quietly, arguing that women should have little privacy in their healthcare decisions. “The government does have some role in our lives,” Paul said at a summit organized by the anti-choice Susan B Anthony List in April, by which he meant making abortion illegal. Paul describes himself as “100 percent pro-life.”

Paul has been certified through the National Board of Ophthalmology since 2005. He is listed as the group's president; his wife, Kelley, is listed as vice president; and his father-in-law is listed as secretary. Paul and his relatives receive no salaries from the organization, his campaign said.

Beth Ann Slembarski, administrator for the American Board of Ophthalmology, said less than 5 percent of the nation's practicing ophthalmologists aren't certified through her organization.

No......he makes his own national board for certification.....and he is the President........this guy is as phony as a three dollar bill.....period. He voted for an increase of 1,5 trillion deficit, and showboated on the funding of this nation's debt. This little wussy has all the dullards thinking he is all that.....the only person who got this man right was his next door neighbor. He probably sustained his injuries running and falling over the grass pilings e had just put in his neighbor's yard. How do these little pukes get elected?

I do appreciate Rand Paul's work/advocacy on privacy issues and the 4th Amendment.

Please share with us one legislative accomplishment with a bill he sponsored which passed and was signed into law which protected our privacy rights, or protected the fourth amendment? I can save you a lot of time. NONE

He talks the talk to get the attention of those who think our founding father were a bunch of whimps and we need that big strong crusader Rand Paul to protect us. Our founding fathers risked their lives.....Rand Paul whines like a bitch when he gets in a scuffle with his neighbor over where he is dumping his lawn clippings. I am ears about this three dollar bill.

All this vitriol while the govt records everything we do... when it ignores public will on the police state... and drug laws... etc. Aren't you a nasty little statist... and at the same time pretending that you stood up to the same. You've been a horrible steward. The bill of rights died on your watch... putz.
