Rand Paul Goes to New York City

Monday, July 12, 2010 at 4:13 pm

Speaking at the Kentucky Freedom Festival on Saturday, Republican Senate hopeful Rand Paul informed Tea Party activists that “we have to get our policy out there, we’re not going to get a lot of help from the newspapers.” He urged grassroots groups to raise money and purchase air time, arguing, “Until we buy advertising, the message is controlled by the other side.”

Today Paul is honing in on some of those advertising dollars, but from an altogether different type of benefactor: Steve Forbes, along with E. O’Brien Murray, Mallory Factor and James Higgins of the Free Enterprise Fund, is hosting a gilded fundraiser for Paul in the Big Apple.

The last time Paul ventured outside Kentucky to raise funds, it didn’t play too well with his supporters back home, eliciting claims that he had “capitulated to the establishment.” That was in Washington, D.C., however, and it evoked a particular animus because it included senators who had voted for the federal bailout of the banking industry — a source of funding Paul had pledged explicitly not to accept. Despite a general backlash against the bailout of Wall Street, folks in Washington have been the subject of far greater ire than the folks in Manhattan.

Great information only if Rand Paul was a person of interest. His name is Ron Paul…. Ever wonder why no one checks this out cause the information is never correct.

Gosh. For once we get a honest-to-goodness candidate for Senate. A candidate that came from a (relatively) modest background, worked hard, became a doctor, and started his own business. He ventures into politics, speaks his mind, and the media absolutely excoriates him up one side and down another. This is not to say that Rand Paul should be excused altogether. However, it does beg the question of where the media coverage is for Jack Conway? Where is Jack Conway? What are his positions on the issues? Does the media dare delve into it?

I'm beginning to think that it's a one-sided media and you have to combat it by forking out money to them in the form of advertising. Sounds like a shakedown to me.

Are these people for real ? Do they really buy that their Tea Party is a grassroots organization funded by the public ? If so then T P Barnum was right when he said ,,”There is a sucker born every minute ,”. They have the billionaire Koch brothers who are benefactors of the Tea Party along with Fox's Murdoc . What are these people thinking ? Anyone in this group that like myself is of retirement age on Social Security or near retirement age or anyone whose amoung the working poor is voting against their own best interests when they vote for these Tea Party candidates whose battle cry is smaller government . Their idea of smaller government means tax cuts for the very rich not the middle class or the working poor ,its an end to Social Security and all social programs which means the elderly ,disabled, children and the poor could never survive in this country with its high cost of living. Without these programs they would be living on the streets unable to pay for high rents without the Hud program that helps them with affordable housing they would be sick and dying without Medicare and Medicaid which helps them with health care ,those who chose to spend their entire salaries on rent who live in the colder states would not be able to heat their homes in the harsh cold winters without the Fuel assistance programs and those who rely on food stamps to help them buy enough food to get through a month would be going without eating and searching for soup kitchens . This is the harsh reality of what their smaller government would look like ,millions of homeless elderly ,disabled ,children and poor people living on the streets some sick and dying from lack of empathy by the Republican party of greed and corporate rule. When are people going to do some rational thinking about what these people they are thinking of voting for actually represent because it certainly is not a better government for the people its a government entirely run by corporations where people don't have a say or rights.
