Rand Paul’s NEW Position: Steal 50 Bucks & He’s Fine With You Getting Droned To Death

April 23, 2013

If you needed further proof that Rand Paul is seriously considering a 2016 run for the White House, here you go:

“Here’s the distinction: I have never argued against any technology being used when you have an imminent threat, an act of crime going on,” Paul said on Fox Business Network. “If someone comes out of a liquor store with a weapon and $50 in cash, I don’t care if a drone kills him or a policeman kills him.  (HuffPo – emphasis mine)

As those clever guys over at HuffPost Hill put it: “So Rand Paul doesn’t want a background check before you can buy a gun, but if you walk out of a store with that gun and $50, he’s ok blowing you the f*** up. Got it.”

Anyhoo… He goes on to give some lip service to civil liberties, but we should be pretty clear that this is a definite departure from his famous filibuster. If Rand Paul is moving to the right on the topic of his single biggest PR triumph, are we really to believe that the coming crop of 2016 GOP candidates will truly be less extreme? Signs aren’t looking good.

    I usually didn’t agree with Rand’s father but I respected him. Rand never!
