Rand Paul: a new hope

Excellent news from Kentucky, with Rand Paul selected as the Republican candidate for the Senate race. This leaves the Establishment with a problem: how to demonise this man, whose libertarian, constitutional message speaks for many? Naturally, they decide to play the race card, their favourite smear, and manufacture a fake issue out of a forty-year-old piece of legislation - the Civil Rights Act back from the days of LBJ. Anything but ask him about the issues of today; the unconstitutional laws of Bush and Obama, the futile foreign wars, the banker bailout must be kept off the agenda, for fear that the people will hear Rand Paul and agree with him.

The Mainstream have never looked so desperate. The sad thing is how incomprehensible to today's so-called (and falsely so) liberals is Rand Paul's wholly liberal (original meaning) argument.

I don't have a great knowledge of Rand Paul, but if he's anything like his father, he'll be head and shoulders above the mainstream republicans and democrats.

If you expect the federal government to protect you from the corporations, you'll be disappointed - Wall Street is running Washington - see the banker bailout for evidence or the healthcare bill, which was written by the insurance industry, or for that matter the policy towards GM crops, written by a Monsanto executive, temporarily working for the FDA.

As long as Rand Paul holds fast to the Constitution and Bill of Rights, I will wish him well.
