Thread: Rand Paul: Trump Deserves Credit for Bringing the Troops Home

  1. #31
    Rand deserves to lose an election for being an idiot.

    How is he an idiot, you ask?

    For praising this extremely illiberal government for its occasional, minor good acts.

    I suppose Rand would have praised FDR at the height of the New Deal for reducing the tobacco tax by half a cent per ton.

    He doesn't understand how this undermines the libertarian cause; while people who hate libertarianism understand it full well and cheer him on.

    Please tell us what your view on global government and foreign intervention is.

    Never mind, I'll remind you and everyone else.

    You want a world wide government that intervenes everywhere, that is why you are the enemy here who opposes Trump and Rand.

    So Rand saying give credit where credit is due, on one of the most critical issues of government, life or death on a foreign shore, makes him an "idiot"...

    But the LP presidential candidate embracing a Marxist political organization is "smart"?

    That's why people dismiss the LP.

    Correct, praising your arch-enemy because he gives you a cookie is idiotic.

    But the LP presidential candidate embracing a Marxist political organization is "smart"?
    I said nothing about the LP.

    That's why people dismiss the LP.
    No, people despise the LP because they want social security, medicare, medicaid, protectionism, war, drug prohibition, the PATRIOT Act, etc, etc.

    i.e. because liberty isn't popular

    This coming from a mask nazi who thinks people should be forced to wear masks, and somebody who says that people should be silenced, and that the first amendment is overrated because communist ideology is too dangerous to be allowed to be spoken of.

    This coming from a guy who talks about how he would crush opposition in China as he advises Xi Jinping to do the same.

    The only liberty @r3volution 3.0 is about is taking the liberty to twist Libertarian writers of the 19th century's words into such a mish mash of over-lawyered semantics to justify his own brand of totalitarianism.

    "liberty"

    Nice, now we have RPF'ers who want Rand to lose his seat.

    Stay tuned for the next installment of "stupid things TDS'ers say".

    Sorry there is no such thing as a "the libertarian cause" it was killed by the purists and will never take off because of said purists. You killed your own cause by being a greedy idiot and not having a long term plan.

    Meanwhile in the real world, Rand Paul is getting things done and a non-libertarian president Trump is about to finish his first term with no new wars and actually reducing troops in the Middle East.

    Enraged by near-daily attacks on its interests in Iraq, Washington has threatened to close its embassy in Baghdad, in a blow to a premier seen as a bulwark against Iran.

    In a new escalation, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called Iraqi President Barham Saleh last week to deliver an ultimatum, Iraqi and foreign officials told AFP.

    Unless Iraq's government puts an end to the rockets raining down on US military and diplomatic sites, Washington would shutter its embassy and recall its troops, the sources said.

    "The Americans aren't just angry. They're really, really, really angry," one Iraqi official told AFP.

    Another said: "The honeymoon is over."

    The ultimatum was delivered over the weekend by the US secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, to Mustafa al-Kadhimi, and was followed by a small-scale evacuation from the fortified mission in what officials saw as a statement of intent.

    This.

    The libertarian cause can only be advanced through the Republican party. The LP is a complete waste of time.

    Those people that bitch about the GOP not advancing the libertarian cause fast enough or whatever are the real idiots. Trump has done more to reduce U.S. troop levels in Afghanistan than any libertarian ever has... and yet some people still bitch and whine.

    I agree with Rand and Massie and give credit where it is due.

    He was better than Bush and Obama on foreign policy quantitatively... but was he much better qualitatively considering popular sentiments of their respectives years in office?
    'Populist' Trump is rumored to flip-flop every 15 minutes on most issues, he had made both pro war and anti war statements when politically convenienet. If he were in office in 2003, he would have almost certainly invaded Iraq too when Iraq war had 70-80% "support" in public. He even surged troops to Afghanistan in 2017 when wars support had dropped way below 50%.

    Globalist-lite is probably approp term for him...

    But should be somewhat sympathetic to the struggling businessman former reality TV star who was trying to be "anti war", "America-Firster" to align with winds of popular opinions while taking money from pro-war Israel-Firster top donor. Tough job, the story GOPA/DOPA puppets in recent years and decades.



    Trump threatens Iraq with crippling sanctions if US troops are expelled
    6 January 2020
    Donald Trump has threatened Iraq with "sanctions like they've never seen before" President Trump has threatened severe sanctions against Iraq after its parliament called on US troops to leave the country.
    Speaking from the presidential plane, Mr Trump said that if Iraq asked US forces to depart on an unfriendly basis, "we will charge them sanctions like they've never seen before, ever. It'll make Iranian sanctions look somewhat tame."

    Your spin is as poor as ever.

    Trump has been against our involvement in Iraq since before he ran for office.
    He just didn't want to see us humiliated by being tossed out, he wanted to leave on our own terms and that is what he started.
    He went along with the military long enough that he could say they had had their chance and nobody could accuse him of making us lose wars we could have won but the goal was always to end the wars and bring the troops home and that is what he did.
    And don't pretend he could do it all overnight all by himself, Congress repeatedly passed bills to limit his ability to bring troops home and had he just ordered them all home his first day Congress would have passed bills to prevent it and probably would have impeached him on one of the many trumped up charges the left brought.
