I'm a Liberal Democrat. I'm Voting for Rand Paul in 2016. Here Is Why.
The editor of Breitbart Unmasked, a site that I enjoy immensely and find informative, recently told me that supporting Rand Paul disqualifies a person from being labeled a progressive. My rebuttal was that he might be right. However, I also mentioned that Democratic Senator Tim Kaine of Virginia agreed with my latest Congress Blog piece. In the article, I explain why Rand Paul is correct in questioning the legality of President Obama's troop deployments. Sadly, people at UC Berkeley are more interested in protesting Bill Maher than condemning a conflict George McGovern stated weakens our country in the same manner as Vietnam. Hundreds of airstrikes, over 3,000 soldiers deployed, and a request for $5.6 billion is a war, folks.I don't know the author of this piece from a hole in the ground, but I'm going to go ahead and call shenanigans here. I have a hard time believing this self-proclaimed "liberal democrat" is going to vote for Rand Paul over Hillary! Clinton or whatever stump the donks put up in 2016. I suspect that Rand Paul is, like John McCain in 2016, the Republican the Democrats would most like to run against, and therefore we're going to see favorable press like this from now until the nomination.
After the nomination, of course, the knives come out and the press savages Paul for being an ultra-right-wing extremist. Don't believe me? Run a Google search for "Mitt Romney Right Wing Extremist". Seriously, do it. Mitt freakin' Romney. The man who was Governor of MASSACHUSETTS, is a right wing extremist. The man who signed into law the health care bill that Barack Obama would use as the template for ObamaCare is a right wing extremist.
If HuffPo is pushing Rand Paul, be afraid. Be very afraid.
That is all.
