“Limiting the power of a leader is something libertarians support. Thus, they should logically support the bill, even if it is done for political reasons. It still will limit the power of a governor who is no friend to liberty. Those libertarians who may respond “it undermines democracy”, should ask themselves. Is democratic tyranny better than undemocratic liberty? …
Wisconsin is part of a coalition of states planning on suing the federal government claiming the Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional. This is in direct correlation with the libertarian position… A libertarian would support such a lawsuit that could rule Obamacare regulations unconstitutional. Logically, they should support this collation with the same goal in mind.
Politics is a dirty game. The bill is likely motivated by partisan politics. The bill will balance the power in the state government. It may stop the government from growing bigger, thus it must be seen as a necessary evil.”
Following in the footsteps of his father, former Texas Congressman Ron Paul, as being a good steward of our tax dollars, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul announced Friday he is returning nearly $500,000 from his office budget to the US Treasury.
Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul (R) appeared on Glenn Beck’s radio program Thursday to respond to what Beck called a “hit piece” in Politico criticizing the senator’s push to audit the Federal Reserve.
“They bring up a lot of points that somebody like me looks at and says, ‘Well, gee, that kind of makes sense. What’s Rand talking about?’ So let’s go over these point by point,” Beck told the senator. “The article says the [Federal Reserve’s] finances are already subject to an audit by the GAO, the Government Accountability Office, the Federal Inspector General and outside audit firms.”
Paul suggested Beck watch a “really great exchange” where a congressman asked the Federal Reserve auditor during a committee hearing what was purchased with around $2 trillion. The auditor said they were “not allowed” to audit Federal Reserve bank activities.

“We’ve cluttered our jails with non-violent people for drug crimes and then we are letting violent criminals out early. So I want to see violent criminals to serve their whole time and be kept away from society,” Paul said.
The Congressional Black Caucus will forgo no opportunity to retard black progress and undermine the ideals that were once understood to be the goals of the civil rights movement.
In the latest example, the caucus has issued a press release calling Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., a racist for opposing confirmation of Loretta Lynch as the next U.S. Attorney General.
Paul earlier issued a press release stating three reasons for his opposition to Lynch. The caucus ignored two and called the third, her support for civil asset forfeiture, “…nothing but an excuse to keep an African American legal scholar from holding this high position. …”
Our fact check of Sen. Rand Paul’s statements about his undergraduate degree has quickly become one of the most widely read ever — and also among the most controversial. The column has about 2,500 comments from readers arguing about its fairness.
