Rand Paul is not a leader of the GOP. He is a leader of Conservatives. The GOP has already tossed him under the bus. John McCain the collaborator, and Lindey Graham have already demonstrated that they are willing to do Baraq Obama’s bidding, but not Rand Paul’s.
It is now Dr. Paul. I was lost on leadership. I sat there on cspan for 3 hours with tears rolling down my old cheeks thanking god for this great man. Can you believe the rinos ran out “Jeb” bush today on tv . McCain and Lindsy Graham are their whores and they are now in panic mode!!. For them to attack Dr. Paul for asking if obamma would kill Americans with drones without a trial??? This is beyond weak. It is complicit with the enemy— obamma but I assure you , McAmnesty is always quite a traitor when he is captured!!
How conservative were his votes for Hagel and Kerry?
Now it appears Rand Paul is going to the left of Rubio on this issue if you read his column in The Washington Times.
Rand refers to illegal aliens as "undocumented citizens" in the first sentence of the fifth paragraph, which is overly gracious wording not even the liberal media uses. Rand says Rubio's plan for fines and penalties for those who came here illegally as a means of making restitution is too harsh because many of them "are poor and may not be able to ever pay ten years of back payroll taxes. I would be willing to forego the fines and back taxes in exchange for a longer and significant time period before these folks are eligible to enter into the green card line." Rand never says who's going to be paying for those people that wait even longer for amnesty.
Rand says he would "normalize" illegals (aka amnesty) at a rate of two million per year, beginning with what he refers to as "Dream Act kids." I remember hearing from many Ron Paul people who criticized Mike Huckabee during the 2008 Iowa Caucuses because he was too soft on the illegal immigration issue. I wonder what those same people think after reading this? At least Rand was smart enough to write it in a conservative newspaper, and not pose for a photo-op with two liberals and the ultimate RINO as Rubio did.
