    Hi, Kimbo!

    "Dr. Paul, the favoured candidate to win the Republican Senate nomination in Tuesday’s Kentucky primary, wants Congress to withdraw his country from United Nations programs, meddle in U.S. central bank policy, and abolish the federal education department.

    The 47-year-old eye surgeon preaches a curious mixture of libertarianism (he favours legalizing medical marijuana and slashing government to its elemental functions) and moral righteousness (he advocates a constitutional amendment banning abortion outright). "

    Does Kentucky have a statewide genetic problem the result of inbreeding?

        So you are not taxed enough.   You can pay more taxes if you want.

          Tea Partier Rand Paul can not give a straight answer to save himself when he was interview last night.

          "He would not answer the question asked. His career as a non-politician politician lasted less than 24 hours."

      "Moral righteousness"?  Does this mean no more Kentucky bourbon?

      As a matter of fact, if I remember correctly (and I could be wrong), but I believe KY actually *does* have the highest incidence of incest in the country...

      Although, I can't say I completely disagree with some of this guy's views....what's up with wanting to get rid of the Federal Education Dept? Why would he want to do that?

        Umm, why would one want to get rid of a federal brainwashing department? May be he wants people to think for themselves finally. But then if you take a total prohibition of abortion, it does not fit into the same logic... American politicians are mysterious, ya know lol

          Misha - On what basis do you suggest the US Dept. of Education has anything to do with brainwashing or in any way discourages free-thinking?

          I would be the first one to grant that non-Americans will have a different - even unique - perspective on American politics. But you are so far in right field you can't see the pitchers mound.

            Misha, allow me to answer this, please. Doug, I'm a retired teacher, and I can assure that a certain amount of brainwashing occurs in public schools. Many teachers who encourage "free thinkers" are frowned upon - or worse. Teachers are very regimented now as to exactly what they teach and how they teach it. They're trying to create cookie-cutter teachers and cookie-cutter students. We even have to teach a list of certain values. When I questioned this, the administration was not happy. I'm glad I got out when I did!

              Doug Hughesposted 8 years agoin reply to this

              Rose - Misha is Russian, which doesn't offend me. My wife is Russian. However brainwashing has a different meaning to those who know what it is. I know of the Russian gulags and the intellectual oppression of the USSR and how it was actually administered - so I object to the term 'brainwashing' being tossed about lightly. Given Misha's  nationality, I suspect he KNOWS what brainwashing is. And it's not an idea sponsored by the Dept. of Education.

              That's not to say the Department of Education couldn't do things better than they do. My father was a career HS teacher - we could swap stories. The Ron/Rand Paul idea the we would do better WITHOUT the Department of Education is seriously flawed.

          They want freedom for the states to impose their own version of what everyone should think.

          I think Rand Paul thinks there are already too many openings to be filled.

    He wants to legalize marijuana?? He wants small government?? Dang - I wish I could vote for him!! I figured the Tea Party was too conservative to support the legalization of pot.

    1. Doug Hughes profile image61
      Doug Hughesposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      I want a strong central government -
      and legal pot smile It's good that conservatives and liberals have a starting point of agreement to build on.

    Go Rand Paul.  I have been listening to Ron Paul, his father, for a while now.  He is one of the few voices of reason as far as the economy is concerned.  We need to quit spending.
