The Republican Party has a new star, his name is Rand Paul, an opthalmologist, whose dad i the famous Ron Paul, a man who never met a politician he ever trusted, other than himself. It is not often that Dick Cheney intensely dislikes a Republican conservative, but Dr. Paul now holds that distinction. He won the Republican primary in Kentucky for the open US Senate seat and, in so doing, defeated a conservative Republican who was backed by the establishment. Rand Paul has a list of things he does not like — abolish the Department of Education, the Department of Commerce, the Department of Energy, the income tax, and withdraw all US troops from overseas assignments. He also wants a Constitutional Amendment that bans abortion, even in cases of rape or incest. Oh, on the bright side, he does favor legalizing marijuana for medical purposes.
OK, Dr. No, we have abolished the income tax. Of course, about 22% of all federal expenditures deal with military expenses. We can then assume, no income tax, no armed forces. And, this is a man who wants to confront terrorism!!
Dr. No, just imagine the US economy completely in the hands of Big Business with no government supervision.
