Rand Paul: “These Barnacled Enablers Have Never Met A War They Didn’t Like” (Video)

It’s true. There is a predisposition toward war in the official corridors of Washington DC now. But this country was supposed to mind its own business. That was a founding principal.

We are about to make another mistake in the Middle East because our president (and nearly everyone else in DC) took the bait ISIS set. But let’s be honest, our “leaders” wanted to take the bait.

War on “ISIS” falling apart? Sen Corker’s takedown of Sec State Kerry, left Barbara Boxer “Shaking and Trembling” (Video)

Wow, things just got really weird in the Senate Intelligence Committee, and awesome. I am very pleased to see this. I think the move on ISIS is a political one and that is just tragic.

This power attracts the power hungry like moths to a bug zapper and often corrupts the decent people who find themselves in DC.

Senator Lee Could Make the Election About Crony Capitalism

Crony capitalism cripples the economy and shuts down innovation. It limits new entrants to the marketplace and new ideas which might change the world for the better. It makes the people and companies with power even more powerful. It makes it harder to create jobs. It enriches the political class. Crony capitalism is a system of legal (for the most part) theft, and it is the system we currently live under.
