Rand Paul says families of victims should not be drawn into politics

Thank You Rand Paul, You Make My Job Easier

I believed that after Rand Paul tried to re-write history at Howard University, he would be wise to be quiet for a while.  I underestimated his lack of intelligence.

He has now accused the President of using the slain children of Newtown as “props”.  Really!?

He says that there should be debate about gun legislation, but that the families of victims should not be drawn into the politics.

Rand was the ring leader who was planning to filibuster ANY debate, and now he believes in deliberation.  And gun control is not and should not be a political discussion, but Republicans and Democrats are making it one.

Serious and reasonable gun legislation is an issue of public safety.  The people that should be most involved in its discussion are those affected by gun violence.  Men shouldn’t be involved in the discussion of abortion, and politicians shouldn’t be involved in the discussion of public safety issues.  What they should be doing is listening to the public, and finding a way to enact their ideas.

By definition politicians want to be in office to further their own ambition, not those of their constituents.  THAT is the problem with Washington.

Paul has trouble with reality, and he has trouble telling the truth.

He says he is still undecided about a 2016 run for the presidency.  The truth, Mr. Paul, is that you’ve been running for months.  The ultimate was your attention-grabbing publicity stunt when you filibustered the Senate over drones.

Admit that your only goal, and the only real work you will do for the next several years is to keep yourself in the public eye, and pander to your base and the owners of the TEA Party.

    James Turnage, like most others say…you are the idiot…govt shouldn’t be violating OUR civil liberties guaranteed to us by the Constitution for the sake of public safety. Those willing to give up rights for security deserve neither!

    “a” – get a spell checker. And a brain. Same goes for “D.” Except you already opted for “idiot.” Sorry.

    And yes, Rand is correct. If Obama was really interested in protecting the kids in our schools, we would have armed security in the schools, just like his kids do. And come on, how can someone that is for abortion really say I am trying to save kids lives. Just in the U.S., I believe the stats show around 4000 abortions a day, which is 1,460,000 babies a year killed. Hmmm. Hypocrisy at its finest. Of course, someone will be offended by this. Sorry, just sayin what I think and believe.

    I think Mr. Paul underscores the callousness and lacok of empathy of the Conservative Republican party. The family of the victim is the paramount voice in these tragedies.

    Mr. Turnage, if you’re intelligent and Rand Paul is and idiot. I would much rather be an idiot than intelligent.

    James Turnage, you are a brain washed idiot. It is so obvious that obama is using these pwople for his own agenda and political gain. Get a brain…
