    Rand Paul on Omnibus Spending Bill: ‘President Hillary Clinton Would Have Been Proud of This Bill’

    by SEN. RAND PAUL (R-KY)2 May 20171,725

    Looking at all the smiling faces on the other side of the aisle, I have to ask: are Democrats still the minority party?
    You would be tempted to think the $1 trillion government funding deal is like Christmas morning for them, as Republicans have handed them free media to brag about how much of the President’s agenda they have stopped.

    You’ll see it in the news as an “Omnibus spending bill,” when it should really be called “the Status Quo Protection Act.” President Hillary Clinton would have been proud of this bill.

    It tosses out campaign promises as it continues to fund the military industrial complex and the welfare state.

    It not only rejects President Trump’s calls for cuts to multiple agencies, but it increases their funding by millions of dollars.

    It paves the way for those agencies to engage in more “use it or lose it” September spending.

    It leaves our deficit at well over $500 million.

    While good provisions are tucked in, “[o]verall,” as Bloomberg reported, “the compromise resembles more of an Obama administration-era spending bill than a Trump one.”

    Instead of legislating from crisis to crisis, Republicans should use fiscal deadlines to articulate the principles that supposedly set us apart – to boldly defend the conservative philosophy that fueled the country’s growth and can lead it into a new era of prosperity.

    Yet, for too long, Republican majorities have backed down from those debates. Like Monty Python’s Sir Robin, they have turned and fled from what seems the least bit threatening, with no shortage of people willing to sing their praises for “bravely” doing so.

    ...a relic of well intended but irrational Enlightenment thinking about the nature of the people (can't work against their own interests, etc).

    The people should be armed so as to defend themselves from criminals, not so as to overthrow the government,

    From the comments section:

    Why isn't Rand Paul the face of the republican party?
    Because the site you're reading duped people into voting for a man completely antithetical to everything they claim to believe in
    Feel completely deserted. Trump needs help but he isn't helping himself by caving on what he ran for/on and blaming the dems and the freedom caucus.
    This is what Trump does. It's who he is. Learn that lesson now and fast so you don't make that mistake again. Primary him with the rest of the Progressive Rhino's in 2020.

    "The program of liberalism, ...if condensed into a single word, would have to read: property..."

    -Ludwig von Mises

    "Patriotism, not nationalism, should inspire the citizen. The ethnic nationalist who wants a linguistically and culturally uniform nation is akin to the racist who is intolerant toward those who look (and behave) differently. The patriot is a "diversitarian"; he is pleased, indeed proud of the variety within the borders of his country; he looks for loyalty from all citizens. And he looks up and down, not left and right."

    -Erik Maria Ritter von Kuehnelt-Leddihn

    "The monarch is a responsible person. The fact that a monarch is responsible "to God alone," rather than to an assembly or a popular majority, is rather shocking to an agnostic mind; but while God cannot be fooled, the masses can. While it is perhaps true that "one cannot fool all the people all the time," it seems one can fool millions for centuries."

    -Ibid.

    I will admit that I thought he would be able to do more.

    I still like him as a person.

    Politically wise he is a mix.

    Do not regret at all for supporting him.
