Rand Paul, Christian Idiot

Rand Paul is a brainwashed douchebag who was named after a horrible novelist, and he is proving once again that nepotism is alive and well in politics. More than that, Rand manages to get libertarian fanboys creaming in their pants over his victory. But what exactly makes Rand Paul different than an extreme right-wing Republican?

Gay marriage? Oposes it. Guantanamo Bay? Loves it. Gun regulations? Hates them. Defense spending? Just show him where to sign.

He even believes the US should be Christian, and that we would be better off if everyone followed Christ [*barf*]. From an interview on CBN (that’s the Christian Broadcasting Network, home of Pat Robertson):

I’m a Christian. We go to the Presbyterian Church. My wife’s a Deacon there and we’ve gone there ever since we came to town. I see that Christianity and values is the basis of our society… 98% of us won’t murder people, won’t steal, won’t break the law and it helps a society to have that religious underpinning. You still need to have the laws but I think it helps to have a people who believe in law and order and who have a moral compass or a moral basis for their day to day life.

Did I mention he’s pro-life, but he wants to protect “freedoms?” Not individual freedoms, of course… more like the freedom for companies to be deregulated so they can sell us poisoned garbage. Government can only step in when a woman is deciding whether she wants to start a family, not when businesses are trying to exploit that family. Since a lot more people will be dying over frivolous things, we clearly need more babies in the world of Rand Paul.

We all appreciate Rand Paul handing Kentucky to the Democrats.


  1. A Presbyterian? I thought they were less looney. Apparently not.
    If a country is not Xian do 98% of them murder? We didn't get to 7 billion people because of Xianity. China and India seem to thrived just find w/o this primitive man-made religion.

  2. Are you sure you're not blowing it out of proportion?

    1. He's honest to his own detriment. This should be considered a virtue in politics.
    2. Our national deficit is our biggest threat.
    3. Military spending? If he's anything like his father - he wants to bring the troops home and close foreign bases.

    I just heard about Rand Paul after the whole civil rights comment - that got blown WAY out of proportion.

    If you're happy with politicians who are dishonest and say whatever people want to hear and have no principles or backbone - well, smile, that's the stuff we've been eating for 20+ years now.

    I would rather have a Bernie Sanders vs. Ron Paul election. They are both true to their principles, actually differ from one another, and would represent a real choice!

  3. Rand Paul supports military spending. He would have to in order to get elected. The defense industry is a necessary ally and vote magnet for any right-winger.

    Yes, I would love a party of Sanders/Kucinich liberals, but that is about as likely as America deciding Christianity is nothing but a hoax.

    Honesty in a politician is over-rated. I tend to be pragmatic about these things: results matter, and nothing else. If a guy goes up there and says he'll eat babies, but he balances the budget... who cares what he said? And if he goes up there admitting he's going to ruin the country... what difference does it make if he's being honest about it? I'd rather he was a liar.

  4. Red herring.... people who talk of eating babies aren't going to get elected.

    My point was that we should know when we vote for someone what we are going to get.... or else we are NEVER going to get results.

    "Under Dr. Paul’s vision, the percentage of our federal budget spent on national defense would increase."

    .... I guess it doesn't matter anymore. Congress is going to spend us into poverty.... are you ready for Feudalism 2.0?

  5. Since Rand Paul has no voting record, we have no way of knowing he's being honest. He might turn out to be even worse. Why assume someone is showing all of their crazy just because they seem completely bonkers?

  6. Also... not a red herring, just hyperbole.

  7. :-)

    Ginx, we would make great pub friends if we lived closer to each other - and if bars around here were called pubs.
