Rand Paul: "Brave" Soldiers "Protect And Maintain Our Freedom"

Martin Hill writes:

Senator Rand Paul and his wife posted a holiday message on youtube recently in which Rand says "As we come together to celebrate this holiday season, let us pause for a moment to remember the brave men and women serving our country at home and abroad. We thank you and your families for the sacrifice that you make to protect and maintain our freedom."

Compare Rand's silly platitudes with that of his father, Dr. Ron Paul:

  • "I'm the commander in chief. I make the decisions. I tell the generals what to do. I'd bring them home as quickly as possible. And I would get them out of Iraq as well. And I wouldn't start a war in Libya. I'd quit bombing Yemen. And I'd quit bombing Pakistan. Our national security is not enhanced by our presence over there. We have no purpose there. We should learn the lessons of history. The longer we're there, the worse things are and the more danger we're in, because our presence there is not making friends." [link]
  • "The notion that terrorists attack us because of our freedom & prosperity, and not for our actions abroad, is grossly wrong. If Americans accept the argument that we are threatened because of our freedoms, rather than because American troops are stationed in many places where they are deeply resented, our problems can only get worse."
  • Stop thanking the troops for me: No, they don't "protect our freedoms"
  • An Open Letter to the Troops: You’re Not Defending Our Freedoms
  • "Cliches about supporting the troops are designed to distract from failed policies, policies promoted by powerful special interests that benefit from war, anything to steer the discussion away from the real reasons the war in Iraq will not end anytime soon." Ron Paul

    1. Rand isn't even 1/10th of the man his father was.

    2. As the general said to Superman: "Are you effin stupid?"

      Can Rand even read? Even I, a non genius, was smart enough to learn the truth, and that was by myself. Rand has no excuse. He had the greatest freedom fighter in the world as his father.

      Everyone knows the US military isnt even close to protecting our freedoms. If they were they would of been defending the US constitution as they swore to do, and been defending us from the constitution violating USGOV all these decades. But nope. Cant do that, must instead kill millions in manufactured foreign wars. Good call General. :P

    3. Withdraw From There...And Get Them All Out Of Here!!! DEUS DAMNO ILLUD TOTUS!!!

    4. Classy Rand sent out donations emails on Christmas Day.

      Sleazy. Greasy.

      And I had unsubscribed from his "mailing" list, taken by Herr Benton from the databases of all of those who gave to Ron in 2012, 2008, etc.

      1. I can't tell you how many times I had to unsubscribe to C4L before they stopped sending me stuff. It took several direct e-mails before it finally happened.

        Also, I use my name in a very specific way/form when I sign up for things I actually want and I can tell immediately when I'm getting things that were drawn from my formal name versus things I sign up for....I can tell you that if you donated to Ron Paul for 08' or 12' that your name made it to all sorts of databases that you might not have wanted to be a part of unfortunately.

        I've never been able to draw a distinct line between what was campaign finance law related and what was being passed around by "Ron Paul Inc." as RW puts it...but I'm quite sure that Ron Paul Inc. commoditized my giving to Ron Paul over and over again by passing my name around to every willing buyer regardless of their political standing/leaning.
