    Sen. Paul Responds to President Obama’s Nomination of Alan Krueger Rand Paul | United States Senator

    I agree with him, but this seems pointless. Might as well ask Obama to step down as well.

    Look, everyone has a right to criticize our president, but the cry wolf obsession coming out of the Republican Party nomination process is simply overkill. We are all becoming desensitized to the relentless trivial attacks on our President, and starting to turn it all off. Republicans would be served communicating their platforms more effectively to the American People instead of crying wolf about our President every day. Its whining at its worst, and reflects more poorly on them than the President.

    These are not petty attacks, Obama is a shit leader who won’t step outside of his tiny little overly educated box. If for just a moment Obama could realize that he lacks real life experience on many issues and appointed someone that has a history of success than maybe the economy would not be in thr trash and still declining Trillions of dollars later.

    I like Ron Paul, he has lots of plans and you can ask him about any issue and he will talk about it until you scream SHU THE FUCK UP!

    That's a real leader, and I like that he has criticisms about the President of the United States... Obama is destroying the country, just as Bush did. There is no rule that once a president proves to be absolute shit that we should just except them and let it runs its course.... I mean Obama attacks Republicans at every given opportunity. How often do you watch an Obama speech and feel like "yeah, fucking Republicans!" When Obama is done? That's because Obama is always dividing and never uniting.

    Can someone tell me something Ron Paul has done for the nation? Some meaningful piece of legislation that passed and is a consensus good thing. I know he votes nah often, but does that count for anything.

    Why I Am Not a Libertarian

    "The most fundamental problem with libertarianism is very simple: freedom, though a good thing, is simply not the only good thing in life. Simple physical security, which even a prisoner can possess, is not freedom, but one cannot live without it. Prosperity is connected to freedom, in that it makes us free to consume, but it is not the same thing, in that one can be rich but as unfree as a Victorian tycoon's wife. A family is in fact one of the least free things imaginable, as the emotional satisfactions of it derive from relations that we are either born into without choice or, once they are chosen, entail obligations that we cannot walk away from with ease or justice. But security, prosperity, and family are in fact the bulk of happiness for most real people and the principal issues that concern governments."

    And he would be wrong. Because for that to be the concern of government they have to take from people prosperity in its most physical form. The very thing Locke says they are to provide. Their money. People like Paul, get that they ARE in fact doing something for you by voting no on so many government programs. They are protecting the physical form of your prosperity be keeping from having to give to the government for whatever program some libtard of the week thinks is best for people.

    You are a sucker Midcan. You apparently vote for the candidate that promises you the most 'free shit' every election cycle. You and Locke are both idiots to wonder why people don't prosper when you advocate for a form of government that doesn't require people and whos only means of provdiing prosperity to some is to deprive, in some measure, other of it.

    I actually like them.

    More and more Republicans are showing just how radical they are about how to govern. They hate the government, they want to destroy it..and if someone else is in power they will make it grind to a halt.

    It has nothing to with getting free shit. I wish republicans would get this misplaced anger towards liberals out of their head.

    First of all, Ron Paul did not make the comments, Rand Paul did. With this nomination, Obama cements his legacy as an economic illiterate.
