TEA Party Darlings Disagree

There is much talk and evidence about the split in the GOP. It is actually two parties in one; Republicans vs. the TEA Party. Now two ‘darlings’ of the TEA party are feuding; they disagree on recent changes in our nation’s policies and relations with Cuba. It shouldn’t matter what Marco Rubio or Rand Paul think about the President’s decision; what the American people believe should be the standard, but

Rand Paul Displaying his Linguistic Skills

Rand Paul took the oath of office as the junior United States Senator from Kentucky in 2011. Before his seat was warm, he began campaigning for the 2016 presidential election. With 2015 just around the corner, he has acquired one of the most skillful campaign teams in recent history. What is most important for a politician is to say the right thing in front of the right crowd. Linguistic skills

Stop American Imperialism

Any government official you might ask will deny that American imperialism is the cause for much of the world’s unrest. Attempts by virtually every administration, (with the exception of Jimmy Carter’s), to force our beliefs on other nations and to seize territory and a country’s wealth cannot be denied. It is the nature of the beast. Only one former Congressman has had the courage and dedication to seek a cessation

Patriot Act is Next

Bills which pass through Congress are often misnamed. The Senate failed to pass the USA Freedom Act. Although it would have changed some policies of the NSA, it would also have renewed certain provisions of the Patriot Act until 2017. Both sound as though they would be good for the American people, when in fact they remove freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution in the 4th amendment. One bad law down;

Rand Paul vs GOP

The Junior Senator from Kentucky, Rand Paul, is out on the campaign trail. His official purpose is to stump for 2014 candidates. In a speech while in Michigan, it appeared more to be Rand Paul, TEA Party standard bearer, vs. the GOP. He has obviously begun his 2016 campaign for the Presidency. His speech centered around minorities, primarily African-Americans. He was accurate when he said that the Republican Party has

Rand Paul was Vague, Radical, and Liberal

There is absolutely zero doubt that Rand Paul will be seeking the 2016 Republican nomination for president. The junior Senator from Kentucky began his campaign the day he took the oath of office in the Senate. There are questions about his policies and if he fits the definition of ‘Republican.’ In speeches Rand Paul is often vague and radical, and most recently liberal. Senator Paul spoke before the Center for

Rand Paul: Ebola Not AIDS

Most people seem pretty clear about what Ebola is, except for one Republican senator. According to comments he has made recently, Rand Paul has discovered that Ebola is not AIDS. The possible 206 contender told a group of university students that Ebola can travel up to three feet to infect someone and that the government’s information on the disease was incorrect. In fact, Paul has been talking to many people

Rand Paul Does Not Evolve: They Said What?

Back when he was running for president, John Kerry was labeled a “flip-flopper” for changing his mind on certain issues, thereby creating a new political species of equivocator. Fast forward to 2014 and Rand Paul, the junior senator for Kentucky, is creating a sub-species of flip-flopper giving political biologists reason to rejoice. This week, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow created a relatively small firestorm over Paul’s new views on the civil
