Gun Control? Teacher Asks 13 Year Old Students to Write Suicide Notes


Even in times of desperation – such as those involving President Obama and the corrupt Congressional Democrats – I would never consider a small-time grifter like Rand Paul to become the party’s nominee for the highest office in the land. While few are willing to say it, his father’s failure to endorse Mitt Romney did cost critical votes as Paulbots stayed home, wrote in Ron Paul’s name or simply declined to vote for a presidential candidate.

Example …

Rand Paul targets Paul Ryan for ‘purge’ of House conservatives

A fundraising email sent by Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul urges supporters to sign a petition protesting the move, targeting the party’s 2012 vice presidential nominee and House Budget Committee chairman, as well as Speaker of the House John Boehner.

“The petition urges John Boehner and Paul Ryan to stop purging fiscal conservatives from committee assignments, and to reinstate the four already purged from their positions,” reads the message from RAND PAC, Rand Paul’s political action committee.

Rand Paul noted that “according to news reports, two of the congressmen were purged from the Budget Committee for voting for a five-year balanced budget plan — instead of Paul Ryan’s budget which balanced in 28 years.”

Rand Paul has previously maintained that the Ryan plan doesn’t balance the budget or cut spending fast enough — a criticism he implicitly repeats in his latest fundraising email.  The Kentucky senator has voted against the official Republican budget on these grounds.

“It’s time for my colleagues to stop insulting American’s intelligence with tired talking points and phony ‘solutions,’” Rand Paul continued. <Source: Rand Paul hits Paul Ryan for 'purge' of House conservatives | The Daily Caller>

Bottom line …

How many people noticed that the GOP candidates beat other to a bloody pulp in the primary – with Barack Obama facing no opposition and running negative ads against the frontrunners – which conditioned voters to believe that the GOP was a party of rich white guys that hated women, the poor and people of color?

Will the GOP allow a repeat of this scenario? Will the GOP allow social issues to dominate a campaign which should be about finances? When it comes to “right to choose” and the “freedom of choice.” Republicans cannot win on social issues. Especially if they are presented by the evangelical wing of the party which is more about gaining money and power through religion and politics.

As for Rand Paul’s e-mail – basically a fundraising pitch – he, like his father, appears to be the type of cult-like absolutists who attract relatively few opposition and independent votes while fracturing the GOP brand. Again, both Rand Paul and his father Ron Paul seem to be small-time grifters earning a living in the family’s political business. Both one-trick ponies who talk conservative, but have little or no legislative impact.
