Reason interviews Rand Paul:
My comments at YouTube:
Would have liked to hear how he would have responded to the MA17 shootdown. Libertarians criticize Dem and Rep actions, but have not yet said what they would do.Unlike his father who I promised to never vote for, I will vote for Rand Paul if he becomes the Republican nominee in 2016.
His reference to Eisenhower, Reagan and Bush Sr. is flawed - they all had a cold war/bipolar world. They didn't have to deal with organized terror networks with access to WMDs.
Last - he wants to restrict the NSA, yet he was silent for over a month after Snowden came out. It turns out, Rand was read-in to the NSA program like every other senator. He knew about the domestic spying.
My question to Rand's fans: If Rand fails in the primaries, will you vote for the Republican nominee, or run some nameless pot-head under the Libertarian Party like you did in 2012?
(This is called tough love. I will understand if you choose to stop visiting Ushanka.)
Like I said, I'd rather be chronicling the failure that is Obama...
