In 2010, Kentuckians and libertarian-conservatives nationwide had a choice: Trey Grayson– an establishment Republican that would compromise with Democrats, or Rand Paul– a Tea Party obstructionist who promised to derail Obama’s statist agenda.
They chose Rand Paul. But what they got instead was Gerald McPaulney…
First, he flirted with amnesty.
Then he endorsed Marxist collaborator Mitch McConnell.
Then he started sucking up to liberal bimbo, Kirsten Gillibrand.
Then he started pandering to convicted felons.
Then he invited statist Democrats for coffee.
Then he invited statist Democrats for lunch.
Then he opposed the partial shut down of the tyrannical federal government.
Then he began mingling with treasonous, anti-American corporatists.
Then he secretly met with Karl Rove’s anti-Tea Party group, American Crossroads.
Then he signed up for Obamacare.
Then he engaged in condescending and divisive minority outreach that only makes minorities hate him more.
Then he proposed “freedom zones”– a Marxist professor’s central planning dream come true.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) recently met with Paul.
“I met in the last few days with Rand Paul. I spent a lot of time with him and I’ve grown to really like him. Even though he has some set political views, he wants to get things done here,” Reid said.
Paul has also developed a rapport with Sen. Charles Schumer (N.Y.), the Senate Democrats’ politics and messaging guru.
Schumer said he and Paul put together an agreement at the Senate gym last week that avoided a dreaded weekend session.
“Rand Paul always reaches out,” Schumer said. “I’ve talked to him a lot of times in the gym. In fact, one of the discussions we had last Thursday on the bicycle led to us not being here this weekend.”
There is literally nothing Harry Reid or Chuck Schumer will agree to that advances or protects liberty. Any deal with Harry Reid or Chuck Schumer necessarily diminishes freedom as envisioned by the Founders.
For Rand Paul to believe otherwise is the latest betrayal in a series of intolerable acts.
