Why Ron Paul is > Rand Paul (and the Daily Beast is a Rag)

So I take it Rand Paul opposes arming the Syrian opposition, but supports US air strikes against ISIS. Fortunately, his libertarian fans see through his blatant difference splitting and are not happy about it. The linked article describes Rand’s weaseling but otherwise is a typical Daily Beast snarkfest.

Whatever Happened to Peggy Joseph?

RIGHTS!

How often have you heard someone say “that’s my right!” Or, “health care, food, shelter, education, is my right.” Or, “I can say anything I want, it’s my right.” But how many of you have actually thought through exactly what is a right?

O’Reilly – Obama Slugfest: They Were Just Pussy Footing Around

orly-obm-intrvwjpgBill O’Reilly was pleased that he was allowed to ask questions and for the most part Obama refused to answer the questions. These types of interviews are for the most part useless. Those that like Obama swore O’Reilly was rude. And those who don’t trust Obama saw [...]
