It is comical how seriously confused Republicans are lately not only with policy, but with the Republican Hero marketing campaign.
Anyone who follows Rand Paul (R) understands that he is one of the greatest pretenders in politics today. He claims he is against big government and the lazy people who benefit from it. Even to the point where he thinks poor women who have children should be punished.
How do you think Rand Paul (R) responds to Cliven Bundy? Let's recap, Cliven Bundy (R) is grazing his cattle on government land and he is supposed to pay a fee to tax payers for the use of public land. Let's re-state that, Bundy is using government government land and getting free feed for his cattle, which essentially means he is receiving food stamps for his cattle.
Senator Paul (R) says, “...arbitrarily in recent years the federal government thought that they were going to override the county lease and they were going to assume control of it but they never asked for permission from the rancher.” Which is completely false. This is a typical from Paul, spewing provably fake "facts". This consistently happens to him unless he has the time to plagiarize. Analyze one of his interviews with on-the-fly questions, those he can't prepare an answer for and doesn't have the chance to plagiarize*.
Watch the video below and hear him in his own words. What does this really shows about Rand Paul (R)? He has no problem giving cattle food stamps, but if you are poor? Rand Paul (R) has a clear message for you. Take personal responsibility and fuck off.
*NOTE: He even admitted he plagiarized, and in typical Republican fashion, said he was a victim of "haters." He also stole lines from a Wikipedia entry from the movie Gattica. There are many examples of this behavior. How can anyone take this guy seriously?
Today there is some new evidence about what kind of a person Rand Paul is. We know he is guilty of frequently plagiarizing and he is a practicing hypocrite on almost every issue. Read this quote from President Obama in his speech after the Newtown shootings...
“In the coming weeks, I’ll use whatever power this office holds to engage my fellow citizens, from law enforcement, to mental health professionals, to parents and educators, in an effort aimed at preventing more tragedies like this, because what choice do we have? We can’t accept events like this as routine.” - President Obama
If your Rand Paul (R) what do you do? Well, you send out a fundraising letter filled with complete bullshit and get your buddies at the National Association for Gun Rights to lie about the presidents words.
