    Yawn. Honestly, post this stuff at Hannity.com. You'll find an audience of knownothings who love this meme. The rest of us will stick with 200 years of US jurisprudence.

    Since I consider almost every Libertarian position to be wacked out, I think not.

    Rand Paul to Chris Christie: Cool it With the Temper Tantrums & Grandstanding, Alright? | TheBlaze.com
    With Governor Christie being responsible for addressing issues that affect his States's constituents, it is unlikely that he will listen to a distant politician who has little or no interest in New Jersey or its residents. He is a governor who, if necessary, fights for his constituents. He will attack obstacles to the interests of his constituents without regard for partisan considerations. As a result, it is unlikely that Governor Christie will heed Senator Paul's wishes. Governors need to produce results. Like any other governor, Christie does not have the luxury that Senator Paul enjoys where he is free to posture on issues as a substitute for producing tangible outcomes.

    Indeed, Governor Christie has improved his State's finances with tough decisions. When it comes to the 2016 race, should both men seek the Republican nomination, Christie is in a position to challenge Paul on fiscal issue. He can ask Paul to identify which of his budget proposals were adopted into law to improve the nation's finances. Paul has none to date and would almost certainly suggest that he was unable to get sufficient support for his bills in the Senate, almost certainly highlighting the Democratic majority. Christie could then counter that he achieved results with a Democratic majority legislature. He could then make his case that his getting results is what separates the two on the issue of leadership. One introduces bills that have gone nowhere (barring changes from now to 2016). The other (Christie) gets things done and has a record of results to prove it.

    Look, I'm sure that you are a nice person, but the fact that a self-confessed Libertarian doesn't see anything wacky about some of the things said by Paul isn't the biggest shock I've ever had on this forum. I find almost everthing about the Libertarian philosophy objectionable.

    Since you wont be specific, let me do it for you. Here is the very first zany quote by Rand paul listed in your link:

    • “Addressing President Bush’s program of channeling government money through religious-based charities, Paul said on KET’s Kentucky Tonight on June 30, 2008, that ‘churches do charity work, and that is wonderful, but they shouldn’t be corrupted with government money.’

    “He also said the initiatives ‘obscure the church-state separation that there really ought to be,’” the paper reports.


    Sheer madness right? How about the next one:

    “In an interview on May 15, 2009, Paul told the host of Antiwar Radio that he would have voted against going to war in Iraq and that he opposes a long-term occupation of Iraq or Iran.”

    “In the same interview, he said, ‘I think torture is always wrong’ and that ‘our country should have a higher ideal than that.’”


    Is that libertarian lunacy? How about this one:

    “I think you don’t have a right to happiness — you have the right to the pursuit of happiness,” Paul, an ophthalmologist, said in a 2009 Kentucky town hall meeting. “[I]f you think you have the right to health care, you are saying basically that I am your slave. I provide health care. … My staff and technicians provide it. … If you have a right to health care, then you have a right to their labor.”

    I could go on, but is that necessary? In general, libertarians believe that you are a free man, with a right to live your own life for its own sake, and should be left free to make your own decisions. Honestly, what is 'objectionable' about that?

    I am definitely no Ron Paul fan whatsoever. BUT he does speak for a large segment of Republican voters.

    People do not forget when you back-stab someone you came to the forefront to endorse and then attack you and everyone on your side. I do not think he will have a friendly reception from Republicans. Unlike Christie, most Republicans did NOT believe Obama is "doing a great job" and, unlike Christie, most Republicans do not believe it is the Republicans in Congress that are the cause of all the problems.

    And it notable that NONE of the hardcore Republicans on this forum are praising Christie. It is the left, Democrats and so-called libertarians.
