How conservative is he? The 47-year-old Paul - who trounced establishment candidate Trey Grayson in Kentucky's GOP Senate primary Tuesday - wants to abolish the federal departments of education, commerce and energy, as well as the income tax.

"All I gotta do is act Naturally"
"They're gonna put me in the Senate.
They're gonna make a big star outa me!
They're gonna put me in the Senate...
and all I gotta do is - act Naturally!"
(Yea, I know. What a source! Anyway, work with me for a minute...)
Dear Dick (and the rest of the "True Believers", Left and Right):
That isn't "Conservative" talking. You "Conservatives" spend like Liberals, only you aren't nearly as much fun in the sack and are a bit too fond of bombing people. Rand Paul is a LIBERTARIAN using your apparatus against you. If folks like Rand Paul do NOT STOP your silly Federal spending THE INTERNATIONAL BOND MARKET WILL ("IBM")! And SOON. Federal Spending is coming in for a CRASH LANDING. Paul and his supporters want to at least take a shot at a CONTROLLED crash landing, while the rest of you mathematically challenged lawyers and "political scientists" (LOLOLOLOLOL!!) want to fly the plane directly into the side of a mountain at full speed.
Sorry, that got a way from me...
In any event, the ONLY way to save ourselves from the Federal Bureaucracies is to starve them out! To CUT their budget, the budget they use to enrich themselves with salaries and benefits unavailable to mortal Americans while torturing us endlessly. The U.S. Federal Budget Deficit for this year will exceed 10% of GDP, and likely will or come close to that for the next several years - after which time things will get REALLY, REALLY bad. (Note to you Lefties - if you guys try to "tax the rich" to close that gap, all you will succeed in doing is EXPANDING the deficit from 10% per year to 20% to 30% per year... at which point you will be changing out of the blue jeans and sneakers into BDU's and combat boots. This is a time to be very, very careful what you ask for -you might get it.)
What, exactly, has the Department of Energy accomplished since its formation after the last "Energy Crisis"? (Other then expand their budget?) How about the Dept. of Commerce? (Guffaw!) And the Department of Education? All they have done is succeeded in enslaving a generation of young people with student loans for many an education that could have been had at a public library for the price of a library card. While we are at it, lets disassemble the Federal Student Loan program (Sallie Mae).
The funding for Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, the Military, otherwise known as the "Big Spenders" are going to be cut, and cut deeply, by the IBM, too. (Don't know who the IBM is? Those are the folks that are lending us the money to do the things we are doing. When they stop lending us the money, and they will, it is GAME OVER. They don't care if you are Capitalist Pig out to exploit the masses or Communist Pinko out to save the worker - that funding is coming to an end; and with it most of the American "Rich".)
Sorry, Dick Cheney. Rand's not too "Conservative" for you. He is too NUMERATE for you.
