Rand Paul was recently kind enough to confirm every unpleasant thing I’ve ever said about him, his father and their Libertarian movement:
LOUISVILLE, Ky.—Rand Paul was talking with University of Louisville medical students when one of them tossed him a softball. “The majority of med students here today have a comprehensive exam tomorrow. I’m just wondering if you have any last-minute advice.”
“Actually, I do,” said the ophthalmologist-turned-senator, who stays sharp (and keeps his license) by doing pro bono eye surgeries during congressional breaks. “I never, ever cheated. I don’t condone cheating. But I would sometimes spread misinformation. This is a great tactic. Misinformation can be very important.”
He went on to describe studying for a pathology test with friends in the library. “We spread the rumor that we knew what was on the test and it was definitely going to be all about the liver,” he said. “We tried to trick all of our competing students into over-studying for the liver” and not studying much else.
“So, that’s my advice,” he concluded. “Misinformation works.”
So if you can’t win honestly, cheat. Oh sorry, it’s not cheating, it’s just lying. Because there’s a difference….how?
And, of course, this philosophy of “Me, me, me!” is found in every lie he tells about Obamacare. In other words, Rand Paul does not believe in the free market at all. He believes in winning by rigging the game.
In other, OTHER words: Rand Paul is just a Republican that likes to smoke pot. He’s a con man, just like his father before him. He will run for president for the next 40 years and make millions off of simpletons who only hear “More pot, Less wars!” and ignore all of his anti-woman, anti-gay, anti-minority and pro-corporate slavery rhetoric and politics.
This is why I have even less respect for libertarians than I do conservatives (if such a thing were possible). At least conservatives are smart enough to know that they’re voting for bigoted scumbags. Libertarians think they’re somehow above such things and support the exact same policies because they can get stoned while doing it. Fucking imbeciles.
