The Mad Doctor Rand Paul was swept into office by a hypocritical, selfish, and uninformed wave. Now, he is ready to take office and do the bidding of Corporate America and the selfish and narrow-minded everywhere. After the lame-duck Congress and President gave him his huge tax break, now he is ready to come to Washington and take a big chunk out of the real problem in this country to him and his greedy enablers, us. Of course, like all the other selfish Republican cowards before him of course he wants to horde his money from you and cut off funding for the government if he must pay his taxes but the last thing he really wants to do is tell you exactly what he is going to cut out of the budget.
It seems Rand Paul is far from alone in hating the federal government, and wanting to strip it of all power costing millions of Americans any benefit whatsoever of a federal government. While Paul wants to cut federal funds that help combat drug abuse Sharon Angle out in Nevada has gone even further. She wants to follow the "lead" of a right-wing dictator in Chile and phase out Social Security. However, in her zest to feed the tea-bag masses red meat she misses the fact that the Chilean system is not still fully private.
You know, this tea-bag mentality that spurned such candidates as Rand Paul quickly shows just how unrealistic it's ideology is when unraveled. You see, to "starve the beast" and provide "freedom" from the federal government you have to do away with many things that many people want and depend on and sooner or later it comes back to bite you when you have to back step and as Republicans call it "flip-flop". You also have to bankrupt the state and local governments you put so much faith in.
Here in my home state of Kentucky I have long watched in amazement as the voters of this state continually vote against their own interests. With the coronation tommorrow of "tea-party" candidate Rand Paul in the Republican primary, it only cements this point. You see, Paul and his tea-party backers want to "starve the beast" and slash the federal budget down to nothing. They want to do this because the Republicans here have convinced them that the very rich should not have to pay their taxes. The only problem with this approach is that many Kentuckians, including the "tea-baggers" are reaping handsome rewards from federal grants for needed programs.
