Why Rand Paul IS the ‘Stupid Party’ – ‘Rand Paul’s Same-Sex Marriage Plan: Continue The Debate ‘For Another Couple Of Decades’

rand paul2

Oh……….such courage.

‘Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) opposes same-sex marriage, but his tactics for doing so are unique’.

‘For example, last month he offered a completely unfeasible suggestion to simply erase any mention of marriage from the laws and establish all its protections through various contracts’.

‘But he really isn’t interested in taking any steps to help that along’.

‘In an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network this weekend, he expressed hope that by continuing to allow individual states to decide, the debate on same-sex marriage might continue unresolved for several decades’:

(Go to 6:12 for the quote)

PAUL: “Where marriage is adjudicated, whether it’s at the federal level or at the state level, we’ve always had marriage certificates and we’ve had them at the state level. If we keep it that way, maybe we can still have the discussion go on without make the decision go all the way one way or all the way the other way”.

“If we were to say each state can decide, I think a good 25, 30 states still do believe in traditional marriage, and maybe we allow that debate to go on for another couple of decades and see if we can still win back the hearts and minds of people”.

Why it’s called the ‘Stupid Party’ – ‘A Republican website without “Republicans”

republican party

The Republican’s ‘secret’ weapon……Don’t tell anybody who they are.

‘The new website for the National Republican Congressional Committee, the campaign arm of House Republicans, has earned a lot of attention in the past week for its bold new attempt to win the Internet and elections by imitating BuzzFeed’.

‘On the website today, you can find items like “13 Animals That Are Really Bummed on ObamaCare’s Third Birthday” or a video of President Obama whiffing 20 free throws. There’s more substantive fare too, like a polling memo on the Keystone XL pipeline’.

‘One thing you won’t find on the front page, however, is the word “Republican,” except for at the very bottom in a disclaimer box that reads, “Paid for by the National Republican Congressional Committee.”

‘In contrast to the DCCC, their counterparts across the aisle, which blasts “DEMOCRATS 2014 in a giant banner across the top of their website’.

‘Likewise, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee advertises itself as “Committed to Keeping a Democratic Majority in the Senate” in a big badge at the top’.

‘But if you aren’t familiar with Beltway jargon and the “NRCC,” you might not realize whose website you’re visiting’.

‘One possible reason for the omission: The Republican brand has seen better days’.

‘The latest CNN Poll found that 54 percent of Americans have an unfavorable view of the GOP, while fewer than three in 10 say they have a positive view of the Republican Party’.

‘Just over two-thirds of respondents say the party favors the rich and nearly half think the GOP’s policies are too extreme’.http://www.salon.com/2013/04/08/a_republican_website_without_republicans/

 

‘College Student Schools an Economist in Economics’

austerity

 

It’s a failure of imagination to not see that if we cut spending to ‘save our children form a large debt’, we will stop economic growth right now. Without economic growth RIGHT NOW, we won’t have the revenue to pay off our debt or to save and build for our children’s future.

‘College student Zach Kopplin, who has been fighting against the teaching of creationism in public schools, smacked down economist Stephen Moore on Real Time with Bill Maher’.

‘It’s definitely worth watching’.
