    Default Rand Paul Pushes 'Provocative Idea' for NKorea's Nuke Program

    Paul proposed this to Tucker: "North Korea gives up all of their nuclear weapons. "Dismantle them all and goes basically dormant, if not to a point where they cannot make them.
    "In exchange, we say we're going to invite 10,000 Chinese troops to be part of an international force at the DMZ to ensure that South Korea doesn't invade or that the U.S. doesn't invade," Paul continued.

    "They don't trust us."
    He noted that when Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi gave up his nuclear weapons in 2003, "what ended up happening was we toppled him anyway.
    "Toppling Gaddafi was one of the worst things we could do for rogue nations because now none of them trust us."

    Sticking a broomstick up his ass was not a good PR move.
    The essential English leadership secret does not depend on particular intelligence. Rather, it depends on a remarkably stupid thick-headedness. The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous.

    Interesting idea, not sure how feasible it is.

    The best solution is to simply let things be and rely on MAD.

    "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

    "All the odds are on the man who is, intrinsically, the most devious and mediocre ó the man who can most adeptly disperse the notion that his mind is a virtual vacuum. The Presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron."

    -H. L. Mencken
