There are times when Rand looks and sounds like his father, and times when he sounds more normal. I remember when the liberals in the democrat party sounded a lot like the libertarians today. We see what happened with that. The democrat party has made the CPUSA almost redundant. There are many things about the libertarians that I came to distrust with them over the 3 tears I thought I wanted to be one of them, supported many of them, and read them almost exclusively. I feel that my eyes were opened to how they treated abortion and family values and I felt that I could not face God in good conscience knowing that libertarians were voting against pro-life and pro-family laws...in their words to be neutral on the issue. We cannot afford to be neutral on those issues.
Yes we do, the Soviet Empire fell. BTW how many nuclear tips ICBMs did the Soviets have aimed at the USA? How many do the jihadists have aimed at the USA? Case closed.
It’s not ignorance it’s a difference of opinion. It is impossible to discuss ANYTHING without someone breaking out the insults after about 2 minutes.
Actually, I think they were supporting an anti-Communist, anti-Soviet, guerilla war within Afgahnistan to oppose the Soviet occupation. I don't think anyone in the State Department or elsewhere talked of "radical jihad" during the 1980s.
The US allied with and/or supported a number of less than pristine groups during the Cold War simply to aid any resistance to the USSR and international communism.
Rand Paul has a lot of appeal in many ways, but I'm afraid he'll have more than enough questionable statements in his backgroud to practically eliminate him from any presidential possibilities.
Center for Individual Freedom?
Gimmie a break!
The author does make a rather good point here.
