Vote on Monday’s top Libertarian Internet updates

BRAVO RAND PAUL – the only senator to vote against confirming James Comey as the new FBI director. The final vote was 93 to 1 – so nobody was crowding Rand on the high ground. As the ACLU noted last month, “While Comey deserves credit for stopping an illegal spying program in dramatic fashion, he also approved or defended some of the worst abuses of the Bush administration… during his time as deputy attorney general. Those included torture, warrantless wiretapping, and indefinite detention.”

This may be another one of those votes which, in hindsight, many Republicans later wish they had joined Rand Paul.

You may be a little out of date. Even with a billion dollars of free adverts by the whore media, Obama’s popularity and ACA’s popularity are dropping.
If the Republicans take the Senate in 2012 they have one man mainly to thank. Edward Snowden.

    I would argue, both in terms of low-cost food and in employing unskilled people, that McDonalds has done more for the poor in the U.S. than all the giveaway programs combined.
