There are many nice things one can say about Rand Paul, at least he is not a Republican who devotes his time ranting and raving about lazy poor people who are stealing the money of those who are job creators. he makes common sense remarks about our drug laws, and expresses concern about the large number of black and Hispanic men who are in jail for minor crimes such as having pot in their possession. Senator Rand Paul was recently being interviewed by the British newspaper, Guardian, when once again he lost his cool. The interviewer asked about a remark he made which stated than a disproportionate number of blacks were in jail for minor crimes. The interviewer wondered if that comment would play out among Republican Christians.
Rand responded: “Actually I think I can take that message into a white evangelical church anywhere in Iowa and be received well.” The reporter noted that polls indicated that two thirds of Republicans do not agree with his view. At that moment, the interview ended and Rand Paul walked away. Sorry, Rand, this is politics, better learn how to smile when challenged by the media.
