For Christ sakes people, get your head out of your asses and actually pay attention to the reasoning behind Rand's comments before coming here with
your knee-jerk reactions/agenda's.
Rand Paul isn't defending BP/corporations and saying we should "leave them alone because sh#t happens". He's just STRICTLY
opposed to the
government getting involved in way, shape or form -- with ANYTHING that does NOT REQUIRE
them to be involved in.
For example, I VERY much doubt he'd be saying the same thing if it was the governor of one of the affected states doing the criticizing.
There is a difference, and whether or not you care to see the importance in making and persisting in these distinctions... both Rand Paul and Ron Paul
have made a commitment to putting their hand up and making these points, WITHOUT exceptions, no matter how many IGNORANT people take their points of
view COMPLETELY WRONGLY -- to ensure the power of government is strictly limited to that which the CONSTITUTION ALLOWS
Looking at many of the knee-jerk responses here, EVEN on ATS, I really am quite shocked and saddened... I genuinely thought progress had been made,
perhaps I was wrong.
One thing is for sure, the mainstream media/propaganda machine is REALLY doing a great job!
