Has-Been Warmonger Republican Bashes Rand Paul, Tea Party

Former member of the President George W. Bush administration and interim ambassador to the United Nations, John Bolton was quoted as saying that Ronald Reagan would be "rolling over in his grave" to hear Rand Paul praise him.

This is over-the-top grandstanding for the Republocratic Party on his part and he is, after all, a Republican Party loyalist. But his real point in the interview strikes home at what I feel has plagued Libertarians since our modern conciousness and that is: We just have a hard time expressing our core beliefs to the public.

I've heard Ron Paul stumble over the "So you want to legalize drugs, even heroin?" question many times. This is most likely a result of being called "nuts" over and over again for decades because up until recently most people actually thought the War on Drugs was working and making things better. Well we all know how that turned out. I've heard Rand Paul answer the same question with an emphatic "Yes".

There should no longer be any ambiguity as far as telling the world where a Libertarian's principles lie. At least we HAVE principles. And the world is coming around more to our way of thinking because, let's face it, they can see the failures of the Republocrats and the Demlicans. Our ideals, no, they are not perfect but they are far closer to what a free people need. Freedom works everywhere it is applied.

When it comes to Iran and Nukes. It's a hard question to answer on the grounds that our allies do not want Iran to start making Nuclear bombs. But it's going to happen. My answer to that question is: If Europe, Saudi Arabia and Israel do not want Iran to have The Bomb then they better get busy and do something about it.

Why is it up the the United States to bomb Iran? Because that is just what we do?

Or how about the UN? Phhhbt! I make joke! Man, I crack myself up.

They ALL have the bomb over there in case you haven't heard. France, Syria, Israel, Russia, China. Nobody is stopping THEM from doing something about Iran. It's their neighborhood.

As far as John Bolton is concerned, he has done some creditable service and is, for the most part, a conservative but he is part of the "old guard" of the Republican party that has become the biggest obsticle to the Tea Party and it's candidates. He is for the status quo of the Republicans which is now part of the problem rather than the solution.

The Left Wing press will have him on every screen since he's bashing Rand Paul and the Tea Party. He will willingly become their useful idiot because there's one thing both parties hate more than each other and that's the Tea Party. I don't ever have to listen to this guy again because I already know what he's going to say.

Iran is going to get the bomb because nobody is going to stop them. Niether party has done so up to now so how is a prospective candidate supposed to say he's going to bomb Iran when the present administration isn't going to bomb them either.

Bolton the War Monger just longs for the old days when we could just go in and bomb another country "because we said so." Well that was before we've wasted political capital, boatloads of taxpayer money and America's youth on wastesful "make work" wars for well over a DECADE.

Oh, and by the way, We're Broke!

Now we're going to bomb Iran? Get real. If we as a nation had kept our sword sheathed until we really needed it, we wouldn't be in this situation.

And THAT's a Libertarian principle.
