Rand Paul: Open the Government!

Rand Paul is doubling down on his call last night to pass a short-term continuing resolution to end the shutdown. This morning on CNN, Rand said he would support a short-term funding measure “to keep the government open while we negotiate.”


  1. Funny watching this clown try to run for President of the United States. Looking forward to another GOP clown show of a primary in 2016

    1. The Democrat clown show will be just as amusing.

    2. "Funny watching this clown try to run for President of the United States."

      Even a broken clock is right two times a day.
      This must have been one of those two times for you. Congrats.
      Rand Paul *is* a clown.

  2. Oh my God, the male of the species might divert their attention from the endless stream of ritualized war on their big screens long enough to realize the federal government is an abject failure at spending the taxpayers declining income with a sliver of wisdom. Rand Paul is desperate to protect the relevance of politicians like himself who believe that it is conservative to destroy all of the hard won freedoms since the signing of the Magna Carta.

    P.S. Will Rand ever realize that he has the grooming skills of a processed food junky who makes a living as a mortician selling grave plots in Palatka, Florida?

  3. Ohhhh, let's just leave it shut down, shall we? Gonna find out we need government about as much as we need a daily colonoscopy with a garden hose. Ooops, sorry, that's redundant...

  4. According to chapter 5 of Jeff Riggenbach's book "Why American History is not What They Say", Republicans have *always* been the party of corporatism, big government, war and constitutional violation, despite the rhetoric in favor of the opposite they started slinging once the Democrats adopted their politics.

    Despite the tut-tuts of Rand Paul apologists, it is blatantly clear just how much in love Rand Paul really is with big government. Let's face it, which necessary services would government stop providing if it "shuts down"? It's not going to be law enforcement, the military and the courts (the maximum desired by minarchists). Most of them are so-called services that government shouldn't be in the business of providing in the first place, but Rand is arguing that they should continue to be provided. That people would basically be staring straight into the abyss if government stopped providing them.

    So much for "small government" and the constitution, uh Rand?
