We couldn’t be more for this. In fact, last year we suggested a very similar idea. We said:
This is a winning strategy for Paul. The cause of truly small government and free markets and free prices isn’t an idea which only works for white folks. It works for ALL folks.
We it’s good to know that McConnell and Harry Reid can agree on at least one thing.
The surveillance state is massive. It permeates America in a way that only a few years ago no one would have believed. The devil’s waltz of government and contractors develops ever better means of spying on us.. Billions are spent, and billions more are made by industry. With each dollar a bit more of our liberty ebbs away.
Sadly it is our money being spent on these surveillance efforts. We are financing this increasingly unchecked experiment in human control.
Rand Paul questioned by Mara Liasson of NPR, Charles Krauthammer, and George Will on how the Republicans (the New Republicans) will deal with the failure of Obamacare. Very interesting viewing.
He wants a vote on his “Fed Transparency bill” which calls for an audit of the Federal Reserve.
Bill Galston is an extremely bright man. I’ve met him and I was impressed. Though I generally disagree with his perspective I think he is a highly skilled political scientist. This op-ed in the Wall Street Journal offers an interesting take on the Tea Party from an establishment “Left” perspective.
