This Is How Its Done

Begin watching the video at 8:02. I doubt if I will be supporting Rand Paul in the primaries next year for a number of reasons, but my hat is off to him for this answer:   When quizzed on his about his views on abortion, Republican Kentucky Senator Rand Paul avoided the gotcha game and

Rand Paul: Frontrunner

After winning two CPAC polls and a spat with Ted Cruz in recent days, it is arguable that Rand Paul is the current GOP front-runner for the 2016 presidential election. Of course it is absurdly early to really make the call, but many of us have been expecting this trajectory since Paul was elected to the

Rand Paul’s Amendment

    As long time readers of this blog know, I have nothing but contempt for Ron Paul (R.Pluto), the former member of Congress, or as I like to refer to him, Doctor Delusional.  However, my attitude towards his son, Senator Rand Paul (R.

Not everyone was enamored with Rand Paul after his filibuster this past Wednesday in the Senate. Senator John McCain railed against Rand Paul on the Senate floor on Thursday.

You restrict my choices, you

Rand Paul Gets It

I have never been a fan of Ron Paul, to say the least, but I am rapidly becoming a fan of his son. Yesterday the Senate in a 44-56 vote rejected the House proposal to cut 57 billion from the budget.  Then the Senate rejected a Democrat proposal to cut the budget by 5 billion

Libertarians vs. Rand Paul

A couple of months back Republican Senate candidate Rand Paul stirred up a hornets’ nest of controversy when he (briefly) indicated his opposition to Title II of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which banned racial discrimination in “public accommodations” like restaurants and hotels. The controversy was notable not only for its utterly irrelevance to
