Also, we need to discuss why the Republican Party is a big fail that increasingly doesn't appeal to enough voters to win national elections.
My favorite article on Rand Paul vs. the neocons, and Rand's now famous senate filibuster:
Where Does Rand Stand?
Paul did not appear on the usual Sunday-morning round of political TV programs, which chose instead to interview the puffy-cheeked and criminally unexceptional Jeb Bush, who’s sort of the Carl Wilson of the Bush family dynasty.Are the Republican neocons in trouble? They are definitely in deep ballot box trouble but they still rule the Republican Party with an iron fist and liberty activists, constitutionalists and Paulites are their favorite punching bags.
Still, the tremendous reaction to Paul’s speech suggests that while he may not be as principled as his father Ron, he might be a far shrewder politician.....
Twitter exploded with over a million Tweets during Paul’s marathon, leading to the creation of the hashtag #StandWithRand. His performance earned the expected praise from Tea Party and libertarian types as well as mainstream right-wing stalwarts such as Matt Drudge, Michelle Malkin, Rush Limbaugh, and breitbart.com.....
Far less enthusiastic were the sclerotic mainstays of the neoconosphere. The ancient squirrel-jowled failed presidential candidate John McCain quoted a Wall Street Journal article that said Paul’s speech was designed to “fire up impressionable libertarian kids in college dorms” and lamented that it’s “the wacko birds on right and left that get the media megaphone.” An unidentified McCain aide allegedly said, “Jumping on the Rand Paul black helicopters crazy-train isn’t good for our party.” Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said Paul was “ill-informed” and that his complaints were “ridiculous.” Neither McCain nor Graham attended the filibuster, as they were busy having dinner with Barack Obama.
Charles Krauthammer, whose face, indeed, resembles sauerkraut that has been smashed with a hammer, derided the idea that the feds would authorize the killing of American citizens on US soil without trial as “ridiculous and absurd.” William Kristol, who cleans his fingernails with the dried bones of Muslim infants, dismissed Paul’s speech as “fearmongering” and “kookiness.” David Frum, who I imagine masturbates to footage of Middle Eastern drone strikes, said that Paul “emerges from a milieu in which far-fetched scenarios don’t seem far-fetched at all.”
On the left side of the Holy Church of Left/Right Binary Thinking, MSNBC’s Krystal Ball (who expects people not to laugh at her name) and the eternally smirking Touré (who, when it comes to smarminess, is the equal of any white man) mocked the idea that a nice black man such as Barack Obama would ever abuse his executive power. A writer at Mother Jones, who apparently possesses the mystical ability to read his enemies’ souls, said that Paul didn’t mean a word of it and only pulled this stunt so he could release a fundraising letter the following day. Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center, who won an award as the homeliest and least charming anti-racist witch-hunter in world history, said that Paul had stirred up the paranoid and utterly baseless delusions of leftist nutjobs as well as “the black helicopter crowd of the folks on the far right.”
Perhaps the big statist warmongering wing of the Republican Party should try and figure out why Libertarians, constitutionalists, liberty activists and Paulites no longer hold their noses and vote Republican.
Aside from the endless wars and non-stop assaults on civil liberties, the Republicans also have an incurable spending disease that is every bit as severe and debilitating as the Democrat spending disease.
Who is Responsible for the $16.6 Trillion Mountain of Federal Debt?
Republican created federal debt:
Reagan 2 terms $1.7 trillion
Bush 41 1.6 trillion
Bush 43 4.9 trillion
Bush 43 1.3 trillion carryover deficit debt inherited by Obama and funded with debt.
Total 9.5 trillion or 57% of the $16.6 debt mountain is attributable to Republicans
Who was America's most fiscally conservative president since 1980? Bill Clinton! Bill Clinton spent less in two terms than Bush 41 spent in one term. Democrat created federal debt:
Clinton 2 term $1.5 trillion
Obama to date 5.6 excluding Bush 43 carryover deficit inherited by Obama
Total 7.1 Trillion or 43% of the $16.6 trillion debt mountain attributable to Democrats.
Even more astounding is that two presidents named Bush are in fact responsible for a whopping $7.8 trillion of debt or 47%. Bush 41 and Bush 43 are indeed directly responsible for nearly half of the mountain of federal debt.
With Jeb Bush unofficially declaring himself a candidate for 2016, one thing is clear. America cannot afford another Bush as president.Earth to the Republican Party? You call yourselves conservatives and constitutionalists?
