Rand Paul Flip Flops (Drones)

No, no, Rand Paul says we should use Drones in the United States if they are imminent threat. Who decides if someone is an imminent threat? Who decides which situations are extraordinary? Sounds vague and subject to argument. This is a clear sign that drones will be used with lethal force sooner than later. His filibuster is not as appealing as it once was.

Is it possible these are precisely the sort of questions that those who've put their own political ambitions above principle would prefer not to ask -- or have posed to them -- in the first place?

Rand Paul "Assures" Evangelicals That He Doesn't Want to End the Drug War

Mike Riggs
May. 13, 2013

In preparation for a 2016 presidential run, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is courting evangelical leaders. And we all know what that means! It's time to throw those hedonistic, libertine, drug-obsessed libertarians under the bus. The Washington Post reports on how that's going:

    At a lunch Friday with about a dozen evangelical pastors in a Cedar Rapids hotel, the younger Paul assured the group that he disagrees with libertarians who support legalizing drugs. When one pastor inquired about ideological ties between Paul and his father, the senator asked that he be judged as his own man.
     
    Paul said he believes in freedom and wants a “virtuous society” where people practice “self-restraint.” Yet he believes in laws and limits as well. Instead of advocating for legalized drugs, for example, he pushes for reduced penalties for many drug offenses.
     
    “I’m not advocating everyone go out and run around with no clothes on and smoke pot,” {Rand} said. “I’m not a libertarian. I’m a libertarian Republican. I’m a constitutional conservative.”

    “He made it very clear that he does not support legalization of drugs like marijuana and that he supports traditional marriage,” {said Brad Sherman of the Solid Rock Christian Church in Coralville, Iowa}.

Just to hammer home what's been said already: Paul isn't a libertarian on drugs. He wants to keep everything illegal, but institute gentler penalties. That's not remotely libertarian. (Is it politically practical? Sure. So are farm subsidies.)

As for "traditional marriage," here's how Paul is selling his position to evangelicals:

Rand Paul, corrupted by Washington DC like so many others before him - another failure.

He said Obama was a Globalist.  It could be his ploy to get in elected.
