Rand Paul = Mouthpiece for Corporate Personhood

I watched the interview he did on Rachel Maddow, it was pretty unbelievable. However, I have to admit the topic was sort of interesting (in a freakish way), but I also see his candidacy as an excellent opportunity for us!

The Gulf oil CALAMITY

THE UNITED STATES is under attack by eco-terrorists as we speak! This is like watching the towers of 911 coming down in slo-mo for months in real time. Do we really want to wake up in a year or so knowing that we've been had? Then it will be too late... Why the sam-hell is BP running this show??

The Curious Case of Dr. Paul

If there ever was a poster boy for the unorganized and message confused Tea Party, we have him now. The son of Ron Paul, Rand Paul. Dr. Paul is an ophthalmologist from Kentucky. Short biography includes that he has been married for 19 years. He is the father of three boys. He has had a successful opthalmology practice in Bowling Green for 17 years. He was the TP candidate over the main-stream Republican candidate backed by the Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell (R-K). He leans libertarian with the mantra for small government, less intrusion and more accountable fiscally.
