“Rand Paul is a different kind of Republican! Rand Paul has all sorts of new ideas! New ideas like, um, opposing same-sex marriage, backing the ‘Life Begins at Conception Act’ (which would make abortion illegal), and keeping marijuana illegal. Rand Paul also has a big new idea about climate change: it’s not happening and Paul opposes efforts to regulate carbon emissions! Rand Paul wants to increase defense spending by $190 billion! He opposes Obama’s nukes deal with Iran, and he fully backs the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision that allows unregulated and unlimited contributions to flow into campaigns! Rand Paul also supports the Supreme Court decision that gutted the Voting Rights Act! Paul opposes all gun control measures, has pledged to repeal Obamacare, and wants to use drones to police our border with Mexico and increase the number of deportations. Rand Paul isn’t like all of those other Republicans who want to do all of the exact same things Rand Paul wants to do.” – Dan Savage, writing for the Stranger.
