It’s getting progressively more and more difficult for Sen. Rand Paul to ignore his father’s osmium-density baggage.
Former Republican presidential candidate and congressman Ron Paul says secession is happening and it’s “good news.” Paul later predicted the states would stop listening to federal laws.
“I would like to start off by talking about the subject and the subject is secession and, uh, nullification, the breaking up of government, and the good news is it’s gonna happen. It’s happening,” Paul, the father of potential Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul, told a gathering at the libertarian Mises Institute in late January. The event Paul was speaking at was titled “Breaking Away: The Case for Secession.”
Paul said secession would not be legislated by Congress, but would be de facto, predicting “when conditions break down…there’s gonna be an alternative.”
“And it’s not gonna be because there will be enough people in the U.S. Congress to legislate it. It won’t happen. It will be de facto. You know, you’ll have a gold standard when the paper standard fails, and we’re getting awfully close to that. And people will have to resort to taking care of themselves. So when conditions break down, you know, there’s gonna be an alternative. And I think that’s what we’re witnessing.”
Like the Walking Dead, only with Bitcoin and weed.
Rand’s got it tough. He has to get in the race pretty soon or Jebbie is going to vac-u-suck up all the donors. But the second he does, Stuff Rand’s Dad Says will become the big hit of 2015. All the people on the left currently fawning over his stance on criminal justice are going to have to deal with Ron Paul’s decades of racist, glibertarian assholeism influencing the rest of his policy positions (Yes Cory Booker, I’m looking right the hell straight at you.)
So yeah, that may play here in Kuntucky where we’re constantly trying to run moonshine past them damned revenuers, but nationally? Rand’s chances are deader than the marmot pelt on his head.
