EWreckedSean: Crotchrocket Slim: UndeadPoetsSociety: OneTimed: Why does a neo- confederate like RAND PAUL continue to be tied with Libertarianism?

Because the difference between the two categories is pretty much entirely cosmetic?

Nah they are pretty incompatible. Randy feels that the state level of government should be supreme and that the Supremacy Clause is totally lame so he ignores its existence.

Its hard to support the Supremacy Clause while the fed ignores the 10th amendment...


You realize after the first congress ratifying the 10th amendment those same congressmen also voted for things not directly specified in the constitution?

I know you like to pretend they all thought that they only had the power to pass laws specifically in the constitution but history shows that was not true at all.

He's ignoring both the Supremacy Clause and the Tax and Spend/General Welfare clauses too. You know, those things in the Constitution regular and not Amendments.

 Subby's headline is misleading. according to TFA "Voters" seem to be just fine with Paul. It's the media and party leaders that have a problem with him.

Oxygen_Thief: I am sure eye doctors (even those dubiously accredited by the organization they had a hand in starting) are smart and in the aggregate intelligent people.  RAND PAUL learned about law and economics at the feet of RON PAUL, another medical doctor.  The man is an ignorant cursed with perceived righteousness.  You can tell by his rhetoric he only has an eight-grade understanding of American government. As a native Kentuckian I apologize for unleashing him on the American populace.

You should not insult Yosemite Sam that way.

^ Obvious strawman is obvious.
Why is it that the "mature, enlightened, and intellectually superior" crowd resorts to such cheap tactics on such a regular basis?

Strawman *and* an ad hominem. It's a 2-fer! Don't stop now, you're on a roll...
