I Hate the Government So Much I Want to be Senator

by Jay Allbritton
When Ronald Reagan reduced the role of the federal government to a campaign trail punchline, he could not have framed a libertarian take over of the Republican party any better.

Thirty years later, the Republican Party has nominated a libertarian ideologue named Rand Paul for Senate. In this clip, Paul goes on the Rachel Maddow Show and Rachel gives us a crystal clear look at how this whole libertarian business works. Paul takes a very moral position on racism. Unfortunately, his own morality is irrelevant because libertarianism operates on naked principle, which is this: anything goes in private places. Oh, by the way, as a libertarian he also believes there shouldn't be any public places. So, laws like the Civil Rights Act moot.

Last night while I was watching this I was talking out loud to the screen: "Give this man the filibuster? The secret hold? Really?" I can't decide if the content (half-baked, recently proven to be disasterously wrong), or the delivery (insincere, condescending) pissed me off more. If, on the other hand, this ends up exposing his, and by extension the tea partiers unfitness to govern to more folks who don't know which way they want to vote yet... Then go ahead and broadcast it some more. I'll grit my teeth and take some more blood pressure meds.

digby, over at Hullabaloo, has been excoriating Rand Paul for the past few days. One of the comments made there was that libertarianism is very infantile political philosophy, kind of like a teenager who thinks because they turned 15, they should be able to drink and stay out all night. All take and no give. Unlimited freedom with no accompanying responsibility. Now I see the little prick refuses to do any more interviews with the media and is pouting in his bedroom. People like Rand Paul need to grow the fuck up!
