John Kerry Calls Rand Paul "Dangerously Radical"

In an email that clearly indicates John Kerry doesn't understand what private property rights really mean and that he doesn't understand that Social Security is a Ponzi scheme, Kerry writes to an SFChron blogger:

Republicans are betting that you don't care - that after all you did to beat them in 2006 and 2008, you're going to sit this one out.

So they're whipping up their base by blocking help to unemployed workers, blocking summer jobs for teens, apologizing to the big companies that gave us the spill in the Gulf, and doing anything else they can do to stop progress. They're betting that they can excite their radical base and you won't respond.

The stakes? Look no further than the truly radical candidates we're up against. Down in Kentucky, it's would-be Senator Rand Paul. Yes, that Rand Paul, who says freedom means a private business can discriminate against African-Americans, and that President Obama holding polluters accountable for the mess in the Gulf is "un-American."

And he's not alone. All across the country, the Republican Party has turned dangerously radical. One candidate calls Social Security "horrible policy"...
Of course, Social Security is a horrible policy that will let down and screw millions of elderly that were counting on it. As far as property rights, you should be able to do whatever the hell you want on your ownprivate property, including banning clowns like Kerry from it.

Kerry should really just stay on his own property. And if he wants to tax someone other than himself, he should tax and tax and tax his very wealthy, Heinz ketchup fortune heiress, wife and see how that works for awhile.


  1. John Do nothing Kerry calling the kettle black...To think the Dopes of Massachusetts keep voting this shill back in office.

    But then I think Barney Frank and nothing shocks me.

  2. Robert Higgs had a short essay a few years back on 'Crackpot Realism' which explains John Kerry's position better than anything else I have read.

    The Crackpot Realist (a term coined by sociologist C. Wright Mills), is so wedded to a particular political theory and practice that he is incapable of recognizing when circumstances have rendered his version of how the world works hopelessly wrong. Any alternative view is dismissed as too radical and unworthy of consideration by serious people, so he goes on repeating the same mistakes until he eventually ends up on the garbage heap of history one way or the other. It's really sad for everyone involved.

  3. I have yet to see a libertarian leaning person interviewed about the oil spill on TV who didn't insist upon the 100% strict liability of BP for the spill. And with a mention of congressional liability limits thrown into the discussion.

  4. Do you think the 'anti-racists' like Kerry would go to the barricaeds over ageist issues, too? Like, say, a club that only serves men over 28 and women over 25? Or a health practioner that rations his services in order to favor the young and believes that the old have se absurd 'duty to die'?

    Surely not, right?
