Re my post at #12. I do believe the younger Paul is just as unstable, and unpredictable, perhaps as nuts as the older Paul. He puts on a good show, and then runs over the cheering audience with a bulldozer.
Occasionally, I think that something the elder Paul said made sense, then the next minute he opens his mouth and spouts total craziness, i.e. America deserved 9/11 for "interfering in other countries!"
Rand's behavior is more misleading or is it merely "hopeful" as he was supported over more liberal opponent and spoke favorably on pro-life issues, unlike his father, also a physician but unwilling to lift a finger in support of slaughtered innocent babies.
I know of some pro-life folk who are total kooks on many issues and also liberal on issues like the Second Amendment, taxes and school choice but I'll never trust anyone that supports the slaughter of millions of babies, claiming freedom of the individual.
Nope, not only is Rand like his dad on other Libertiarian issues, he is also unsympathetic to Israel's right to exist against neighbors who desire their total destruction.
It is amusing to see the old time wisdom being applied here. “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.”
