I've argued on many threads with Freepers on this topic and other Rand Paul "Libertarian" perspectives. It's frustrating to no end on the blindness of nearly every so-called "constitutional conservative".
Rand is consistent and correctly principled on all core "conservative" beliefs, and he backs it up with action that riles both the left and right establishment.
There are a handful of good congress critters. Rand is #2 in my book amongst all. Cruz is #1. But, Cruz isn't eligible for POTUS from what I understand of the law (bummer of bummers). So, Rand is the #1 candidate for 2016 from my perspective.
Keep up the good work!
“Im like most conservatives in the country in that I think reform should be dependent on border security first,”
Close, and Thanks for SAYING, you’ll vote no.
However, You are still not like most conservatives in this country who think that some Precursor to Immigration Reform ameliorates the Evil Itself.
Most Conservatives in this Country have had a belly full of Immigration Reform period. Making the next round of being sold out conditional on some empty promise to “Do Something” first doesn’t cut it.
We want it stopped. No more damned Reforms.
Thanks. These guys... grrrr.
No new pathway to citizenship, means that one must return to their country of origin and then wait in line. Paul have been very consistent on this topic. All Paul would do is give qualified illegals in the USA a work visa.
Paul has been against the gang of 8 bill from day one. There was never any doubt which way he was going to vote. FR just has a bunch of Paul haters that constantly misrepresent him.
That’s absolutely not what Paul says in the interview.
He would have illegals who have been ‘legalized’ here be able to go in line as if they were still home and hadn’t committing felonies being here.
None of them have my trust. Way too many times we’ve seen erstwhile “conservatives” cave in favor of amnesty. It proves they all can be bought for the “right” price... and that includes Cruz. He just hasn’t been given the the offer he wants.. yet. A little pork here, a tacit threat there, and you’ve a made guy.
Rand right again.
After it has been changed by the Senate, won't the house need to vote on it again in it's final form?
