Sometimes if you piss off both sides it's because you're telling a truth that neither side wants to admit.

But other times it's because you're so terrible that even people who reflexively disagree with each other still get together to recognize that you suck. Rand is the latter.

RANDPAUL, picking carefully over the philosophies of confederates, libertarians, Republicans, Democrats, and conservatives, managed to combine them in such a way as to take the benefits of none of them.

Nothing of the spirit of union in a confederacy, none of the benefits of government possible in libertarianism (not to be confused with the "fark-you-ism" that seems to be dominating libertarians these days), none of the "business-sense" of the GOP (1950s-era), none of the Democratic Party's diversity, and none of the wisdom of ages conservatism claims.

"I will speak as long as it takes, until the alarm is sounded from coast to coast that our Constitution is important, that your rights to trial by jury are precious, that no American should be killed by a drone on American soil without first being charged with a crime, without first being found to be guilty by a court."

-Rand Paul, March 6, 2013

"If someone comes out of a liquor store with a weapon and fifty dollars in cash, I don't care if a drone kills him or a policeman kills him."

Why does a neo- confederate like RAND PAUL continue to be tied with Libertarianism?

Also, he is really no different from any other mouth breathing teabagger, other than the military stuff.

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.

Libertarians range from thinking state governments need to be restrained as much as the Federal government etc. to feeling that any government at all is an imposition on personal liberty (don't deny you have structural anarchists going to your party meetings libertarians, not that I'm saying you're all anarchists).
/knows IRL anarchist activists... they're interesting at least

Skarekrough: Why is it that every mindless douche who can't think for themselves but feel the need to have an opinion always seems to be a rabid Rand Paul supporter?


Easy.

Rand points out negative things about both parties and says he won't do any of those things. He has no plan on things he WOULD do (none that make any sense). He's a Monday morning quarterback talking about how HE would have won the game if he was in charge.

Smart people see right through it. Dumb people assume he is a genius who could pull it off.

Or, you're one of the the people unwilling to admit a truth in the former.

From the author's bio page: "Nick Gillespie is the editor in chief of Reason.com and the co-author The Declaration of Independents: How Libertarian Politics Can Fix What's Wrong with America."
So that explains a lot.

As long as libertarians continue to have the stink of the GOP/Teabaggers all over them, they will be associated with them.

...because a lot of folks have realized that he's unhinged and operating under the delusional premise that reality will simply conform to his thoughts, and that facts will simply step aside for his tiny brain and enormous ego?

Well, and this...
