    "I accept your surrender." It's written in invisible ink.

    "Rand is helping to change what Trumpism is." Cute.

    "You are the slug." Nope, still flying. Looking down at you right now. I get that some people are still invested in Rand's career but you're wasting your time in my opinion. For the Republican Party, the "Conservative Movement", even some quarters of libertarians, it's Trump's World and he's just living in it. For all of these things and the country as well has turned its back on what father stood for which Rand failed to advance. What we have in 2019, over a decade after Dr. Paul first Presidential run is an authoritarian state with a massive military-industrial-complex, involved in countless wars and drowning in red ink. One potential young leader of the Freedom Movement in Congress leaves the GOP and another may very well be primaried out too. Speaking of war, I have no doubt Rand is sincere in wanting to be a back-channel from Trump to the Iranians and wants to prevent Bolton and Pompeo from starting a war. The problem is, he has nothing to offer Iranians, short of asking the Islamic Republic for surrender terms in order to get the sanctions removed. Remember, he opposed the nuclear deal. So what can he say or do other than "Trump doesn't want a war." Fine. But if he really wants to de-escalate the best thing to do is fire Bolton and Pompeo, stop selling arms to the Saudis and remove the navy from the Persian Gulf. He has not done this, ergo we remain on the brink and thus there's really nothing for Rand to discuss with the Iranians. By the way, I seem to recall some Paul saying "Sanctions are an act of war." But it wasn't Rand. And regardless whether Trump wins or loses next year, the situation within the party and on the Right will remain the same. After a decade it is clearly obvious that a quite strong majority of Republicans favor what Trump or any-Trump-like replacement in the future will offer, not "Paulism" or "Ryanism" or what the never-Trumpers and the neocons offer either. In other words, even if Trump loses, Rand isn't going to be the one to pick up the pieces, someone else, a more competent version of Trump, will emerge. Many Republicans in the House opposed the budget deal but a good chunk of them supported it and will do so in the Senate and say "Hey, President Trump is in favor of the deal, so am I!" So there you go, "deficits don't matter" and it isn't just Dick Cheney saying this but also Rush Limbaugh and all of Conservative INC. which Trump now owns lock, stock and barrel.

    "Rand does this for every bill. He tries to fund every bill with existing funds before tapping into new funding." Sure, by cutting funding that doesn't harm the special interests in his home state. I don't know about you but being "fiscally responsible" has better optics when you're NOT trying to stick the budget knife in someone else's back, especially when they are in wheelchairs. "Rand is the best in the Senate when it comes to fiscal responsibility." That's akin to being the tallest building in Topeka. Considering the red ink the country is drowning in right now, I'd rather be screeching with my hair on fire (which one would expect when one's hair is on fire) than be the emperor with no clothes on, oblivious to his situation such as yourself. Reportedly McConnell told Trump that no President ever lost re-election spending more money so we can expect the new budget deal to pass the Senate next week and Rand will get his free vote when the margin is 79-21 in favor and he can posture and preen about spending and be utterly irrelevant while the country continues to drown in red ink. And then we can wonder if had chosen to use his political capital to back Matt Bevin back in 2014 and send McConnell to the dustbin of history where he belongs instead kissing his arse to get his non-support for his "glorious" Presidential run, whether it would be Rand in the White House setting the budget and not Trump.

    "We have a nearly trillion dollar deficit and $22 trillion in debt. Spending is out of control." Indeed and your boss in the Senate GOP caucus and the President just signed off on on a budget which is going to increase that debt. What are you going to do about it Rand? Sucking up just looks pathetic when you gain nothing from it and on that score Rand has everyone beat by a mile except Lindsay Graham. "You seem to be suggesting that you don't think Rand would do that exact same thing for spending that specifically benefits his constituents in Kentucky. I am pretty sure that he would. And I don't see why you doubt it." If Rand has a TVA privatization plan out there or is willing to cut the fat in the Pentagon budget by closing Ft. Campbell, I haven't seen it. Trying to prop up a dying coal industry which in market forces is rendering uneconomical? I've seen that.

    "What's your point? That politicians are gonna politic? Is that really some kind of news to you?" No, in fact I actually find it refreshing. What I can't stand is hypocrites who pose as "tough on spending" trying to make a point at someone else's expense (and American heroes no less) when they wouldn't make the same point on their own people.

    "so why the hell are they so much more deserving of federal funding at taxpayer expense than the far greater number of other victims of other tragedies in other places?" Since you feel this way I'm sure you will feel the same way when those coal miners in Kentucky whose checks are bouncing because their mines are going belly up come to D.C. demanding a bailout. I have no doubt about it. The question is...will Rand feel the same way?
