    Rand Paul's new book coming out in October: "The Case Against Socialism"




    A recent poll showed 43% of Americans think more socialism would be a good thing. What do these people not know?

    Socialism has killed millions, but it’s now the ideology du jour on American college campuses and among many leftists. Reintroduced by leaders such as Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the ideology manifests itself in starry-eyed calls for free-spending policies like Medicare-for-all and student loan forgiveness.

    In The Case Against Socialism, Rand Paul outlines the history of socialism, from Stalin’s gulags to the current famine in Venezuela. He tackles common misconceptions about the “utopia” of socialist Europe. As it turns out, Scandinavian countries love capitalism as much as Americans, and have, for decades, been cutting back on the things Bernie loves the most.

    Socialism’s return is only possible because many Americans have forgotten the true dangers of the twentieth-century’s deadliest ideology. Paul reveals the devastating truth: for every college student sporting a Che Guevara T-shirt, there’s a Venezuelan child dying of starvation. Desperate refugees flee communist Cuba to escape oppressive censorship, rationed food and squalid hospitals, not “free” healthcare. Socialist dictatorships like the People’s Republic of China crush freedom of speech and run massive surveillance states while masquerading as enlightened modern nations. Far from providing economic freedom, socialist governments enslave their citizens. They offer illusory promises of safety and equality while restricting personal liberty, tightening state power, sapping human enterprise and making citizens dependent on the dole.

    If socialism takes hold in America, it will imperil the fate of the world’s freest nation, unleashing a plague of oppressive government control. The Case Against Socialism is a timely response to that threat and a call to action against the forces menacing American liberty.

    So apparently there is a liberal gene that makes you 40% more likely to be liberal but 60% of it is enviornmental factors. So its not racist to be against open borders because being a liberal is mostly environmentally infleunced.

    I am anti socialism.

    I am pro Rand Paul

    I am pro Donald Trump.

    I as a libertarian have many differences with Trump, but I am happy to be allied with him and many other Republicans in the fight against socialism. Back 10 years ago I saw the 2 parties as very similar, but now I see a more distinct difference. I think the libertarian influence we grew is a part of the reason the GOP is less neocon and more libertarian friendly. The Democrat party on the other hand is openly against liberty, small government and the Constitution.

    I hope Rand sells many books and persuades many Americans.

    I am a libertarian. I am advocating everyone enjoy maximum freedom on both personal and economic issues as long as they do not bring violence unto others.

    Can't wait to pick up a copy and give it to some naive/confused friends.

    Rand Paul : Ultimately, if someone's going to accuse you of something that's going to bring down a presidency, I think we deserve to know who that person is.

    So if Rand Paul holds the same exact position as his father, it makes him embarrassing?

    Hmmm...ok r3volution 3.0

    Rand is going to sell a lot of books I think, with all his work to promote it and now Trump tweeting about it, and especially given it's timely relevance to today's political debate. I wonder if he will appear on the NYT bestsellers list at all.
