I don't like Ron Paul. I at least had hopes that Rand Paul is better than his father on politics. But he didn't fall far enough from the tree, it seems.
Rand Paul goes and embraces the "why do they hate us?" question with a conviction that we are the reason.
Leaving jihadis alone does not persuade them to leave us alone. Use of military force against jihadis is not counter-productive. As I've long said, use of ineffective force against jihadis is counter-productive.
You can argue that we have reverted to ineffective use of force. But simply saying use of force against murderous enemies is the problem is wrong.
Like the Self-Flagellation Brigade needs new members from the Republican Party. That's just great.
