Rand Paul recently voted against nominating Anti-War, Anti-Israel Chuck Hagel as Secretary of Defense. Libertarians and “Constitutional Conservatives” once again aligning with very far left liberals as they defend Chuck Hagel on political forums across cyberspace! See, these libertarians want Chuck Hagel as Secretary of Defense!
Rand Paul has his reasons for voting against Hagel: “I do not believe Sen. Hagel has adequately explained his activities and their financing since he left the Senate, and I believe this criteria is especially important when dealing with the revolving door between government and the private sector.” He also wants the Hagel discussion to keep ongoing.
Paultards from Antiwar.com have some nice things to say about Rand. They want to “boycott” Rand and for followers to start calling him “Paul the Lesser.” Is Rand Paul now a full blown Republican Neocon?
It seems after Rand’s trip to Israel he has become more and more neocon tea party type and less libertarian. I still do not trust a single word that comes out of any Paul’s mouth. However, it’s an interesting debate I think. Is he a neocon, is he a libertarian? Is it all for show, or is he genuine? What do you think?
