|Sen. Rand Paul from Kentucky|
I live in the not-so-great state of
Kentucky. It's a poor state that's been run
into the ground by Democrats for many decades. We're a welfare state that loves
government handouts and loves to tax people. But, having said that, we
have the MOST AWESOME senator in the person of Rand Paul. Kentuckians can
be proud of Rand Paul, the son of Presidential contender, Ron Paul.
This week, Sen. Rand Paul proposed an amendment that would have prohibited our government from transferring F-16 aircraft and Abrams tanks to
Muslim Brotherhood-dominated government. This idiotic idea of arming Islamic extremists, came from not only
President Obama (who never saw a Muslim extremist that he didn't sympathize with) but also from the Republicans in the Senate.
|Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi|
Last December, in the midst of protests from the Egyptian people against President Mohammed Morsi, some demonstrators yelled out, "President Obama is supporting a terrorist." The
U.S. is now financing tyranny in the Middle East, thanks to our 3 billion dollar bailout of
this fanatical regime that has instituted Shariah Law and has publicly stated
that the Jews descended from apes and pigs (shades of Hitler). In 2010, Morsi
appeared in a video encouraging Egyptians to "nurse our children and
grandchildren on hatred." Also, a senior aide to Morsi has stated that the
holocaust is a myth, invented by America.

Rand Paul has 3 ideas which baffle GOP senators like John McCain, Kelly Ayotte (from NH) and Lindsay Graham among other Senate Republicans:
- Rand Paul thinks that American foreign policy ought to be premised on American national interests, not shifting notions of global stability.
- Rand Paul believes in this quaint idea that the foundation for all American foreign policy should be the Constitution. Imagine that? This means that our Congress, especially the House of Representatives has the power to de-fund such madness as "arming Arab extremists."
- Finally, Rand Paul believes that when we give arms and aid to anti-American Islamists, bad things tend to happen to America.
I want to recognize the 18 Republicans who joined Senator Rand Paul is trying to stop the arming of America's enemies. These are true patriots: Boozman, Coats, Cornyn, Crapo, Cruz, Fischer, Grassley, Heller, Lee, Moran, Risch, Roberts, Rubio, Scott, Sessions, Shelby, Thune, and Vitter.
These 19 not only evidence common sense, but also the desire and conviction to protect America's interests as well as those of Israel.
