House Freedom Caucus Members Stand With Judge Roy Moore, Ted Cruz Capitulates

The attempted political take-down of Judge Roy Moore because of highly specious allegations of sexual impropriety has drawn a line in the sand for the Republican Party. Prominent Republicans are deciding whether they will stand with Moore, or push for Democratic victory in Alabama. Members of the House Freedom Caucus (HFC) are standing strong behind the judge. “You can’t unring a bell,” HFC chairman Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) said after being asked about his support of Moore in lieu of the allegations. “At this point, it’s up to Alabama to figure out — Washington D.C.’s not going to decide that.… Keep Reading

Rand Paul’s Deathsquads

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has done more than most Republicans in outreach efforts to leftists and minorities. Paul has tried to distance himself from the fringe of his party and movement, and grow the GOP with new demographics to make it a true big tent party. He has led this charge for many years. For these outreach efforts, he was greeted with an assassination attempt at his own home by his socialist revolutionary neighbor. The liberal media, who Paul tried so hard to placate throughout his Senate career, cheered on the leftist and avidly propagandized on his behalf, clearly trying… Keep Reading

Rand Paul noted that while he had opposed Trump’s position on numerous issues over the past few months, “we still have a very good relationship because I don’t attack him personally”.

Rand Paul Slams “Warmonger” Lindsey Graham For Losing Track Of Wars

As the controversy surrounding the Niger attack escalates, Congress is again faced with the issue of war powers. While the Constitution requires a declaration of war from Congress, the federal legislative body has essentially given away this role with a blanket authorization for conflicts. This has been used and abused across administrations. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), a known supporter of endless war, was recently asked in an interview about the Niger attack.

Can President Trump And Rand Paul Save Healthcare?

Last week, Donald Trump signed a new executive order facilitating more flexibility for consumers of health insurance. The order allows for more flexibility in purchasing insurance across state lines, and greater freedom for both small businesses and groups of consumers in creating “association health plans” (AHPs). In theory, this will broaden access to the benefits currently enjoyed only by those with employment-based insurance, and other types of group insurance. The order also paves the way for healthcare reforms long favored by Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) who believes the reforms will help bring down healthcare costs. Keep Reading

Libertarianism And The Political Mainstream

Libertarianism has had an interesting relationship with the political mainstream over the last year. After years of being relegated to the fringes of political discourse, it was brought into the fold with the rise of former Congressman Ron Paul. While not everyone agreed with his views, many supported him for his consistency and honesty. His contribution to the liberty movement is perhaps the greatest, and many seem to have forgotten why. Paul approached his presidential campaigns the same way as he did his congressional career. It was never about the accolades, awards, legislative achievements, or history of having a big… Keep Reading

Why Rand Paul Is Wrong On Graham-Cassidy

The Donald Trump era has made Washington D.C. a little more entertaining, but has done little to change how the Beltway operates. Democrats still hate Republicans, Republicans still hate leadership, and Wall Street still controls the Treasury. So it goes. As such, when I had heard that a last second Obamacare reform bill had come out, I had assumed that – like Ryancare, “Skinny Repeal”, and other such gimmicks – we were dealing with another Obamacare-lite measure that did little more than paint Obama’s legislative nightmare red.

No, Rand Paul Is Not To Blame For Obamacare Repeal Failing

Healthcare is an important issue to many Americans for obvious reasons. If health coverage is unavailable or substandard, that can leave people without treatment and cause them undue suffering. For this, the simple fix for Democrats was to massively increase federal involvement in the industry. While some of these ideas may sound good in theory, the reality of the situation is that the more government doesn’t equal a better society. In terms of Obamacare, this has been demonstrably true. In the several years since Obamacare’s passage, Republicans have made this issue their number one pledge and it has been a… Keep Reading
