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.
If the Republican Party had wanted to - abortion would be illegal. I think they would rather have it as a wedge issue than to actually do something about it. As long as you have people who vote for us (Republican) solely for the reason that we are Pro-Life, they will never have an incentive to act.
Rand Paul is a REPUBLICAN. Rand Paul is NOT his father.
Rand Paul on abortion:
Sanctity of Life
“I am 100% pro life. I believe abortion is taking the life of an innocent human being. I believe life begins at conception and it is the duty of our government to protect this life. I will always vote for any and all legislation that would end abortion or lead us in the direction of ending abortion.”
