I heartily encourage those who have found in Ron Paul a glimmer of hope in our political process to not blindly carry this hope over to Rand Paul. He is not his father and I believe he never will be. I cannot trust him like I do father.

You got it half right. Both parties are controlled by the Big Corps.
Dems and Repubs are the same except on a few social issues. Both are for Corporate entitlements, both are for massive growth in Government agencies. One just does it faster than the other.
Look at the Obama Administration (Remove the blinders and admit the truth)
Patriot Act, Wars (even more), Homeland security (now scanning machines?!) - Think about it, the WORST of the BUSH administration continues along with his #ty programs to boot. If you can't see that you are lying to yourself.

Cutting funds DURING wars is just silly. Cutting funds after you win the wars makes sense. Cutting funds during a war would be akin to cutting gas usage during a road trip. Yeah, we cut funds! But we aren't where we want to be.
You're nuts if you think any of the current foreign wars the US is committed to are "winnable".
The opposite is true. They are designed to go on in perpetuity, lining the pockets of war profiteers.

You know they said the same thing about Vietnam and it ended. It's also been said about pretty much every war we've ever been in. They ended.

The U.S was founded by illegal immigrants! Who gave the English, Dutch and French permission to come here, enslave the population and wipe out entire native cultures?
You just don't #ing get it!
Why does such ignorance fester in this country? Are people really that stupid?

And if you can't handle the reality of the situation(why there are those who want to trash America down to third world status so America would be a less tempting country to immigrate to) then maybe you should go back to the little kid's table.

Not true at all. My nephew just went in the service in August so the constant turnover probably prevents this. I doubt if most of the soldiers from 10 years ago are still over there.

I bet the Tea Party hasn't stopped to think about how much the elderly depend on social security. My grandmother would not be able to live on her own in her advanced age without social security and other programs.
