Stop just stop from all this crap. This is disgusting and makes no sense. Go to something serious

If Israel needs it what’s wrong with foreign aid? At least they don’t hate us. What I do know is that Israel and Paul agrees that they don’t want our aid because they don’t need it. And if that’s the case Paul has been in favor of pulling our aid out

Getoff- I’m aware of that and I’ve already said he should have payed more attention. I’m just saying he wasn’t complicit.

Tim they’re freakin stupid. And probably evil as well. They wanna get rich off this sort of thing. At least the democrats and socialists just tell us who they are as opposed to graham McCain and co.
 April 21, 2015 at 1:57pm
Yes exactly. I wonder what Lindsey and John would say? Ugh those blood thirsty savages

Yes Reagan should have payed more attention absolutely. But it still doesn’t mean he himself did something wrong. If Obama were more trustworthy and he made the mistake of not overseeing everything. I could forgive him if something like what Reagan did happened. But with Obama it’s far more than one incident

I know they’re similar. But they’re talking us to destruction at a slower pace. Those Rinos also don’t really get government and spending under control do they?

I did a huge research project on Iran contra. Reagan was not a micro manager. That could be a mistake depending on how you look at. Basically he told Robert McFarlane to get those hostages home in anyway. And since Reagan didn’t micro manage macfarlane played fast and loose with his words and turned to Israel and Iran to get the hostages back.
Still done under his Administration (and if the same happened under Obama, Conservatives would blame him and call for the noose). All I'm saying is that Rand can't call himself a Libertarian if he wants to be a Reagan-like.
Reagan is not the one and only President in the history of our nation whom the term "the buck stops here" does not apply.
The amount of white-washing and rewriting history in regards to Reagan is crazy. The man was a fantastic President. He simply was not the conservative superhero people pretend he was.
And obviously liberals still blame Reagan. Big whoop, it helped keep Iran and Iraq at each other's throat for another decade, which wasn't a bad play.

Snow, Democrats are incapable of proper foreign policy. They have failed at every foreign policy decision they have attempted. The last Democrat that had any balls was JFK, since then it's been one train wreck after another. LBJ escalated the Vietnam war from 63-68 and it took 5 more years to get out of it and I'm not a big fan of Nixon either. Jimmy Carter, well, his name is synonymous with pathetic economy and lack of backbone in America. Clinton neutered the military, gave out pink slip, sold secrets and intelligence programs suffered. He is responsible for letting OBL go and the intelligence failures that led up to 9/11. Their blood is on his hands, the pathetic POS. I was in the military during his Presidency and field grade officers retired by the boatloads so they didn't have to take orders from him. He was a disgrace, just like Obama is. If it wasn't for the .com boom, Clinton would have been pitiful and had little if any legacy. He did raid the SS bank to balance the budget and now look what we have.
It should also be noted that he publicly took responsibility for the whole thing, including the parts he claimed he was unaware of. He also acknowledged that what he hoped would be a “noble” pursuit degraded into a “arms for hostage” deal.
Your "research project" wasn't nearly huge enough. Check this out:
That's not somebody who "wasn't complicit." He "should have paid more attention" is a laughable attempt at whitewashing his role in selling TOW missiles and much more to the word's #1 state sponsor of terrorism. In addition, he funded and sold arms to UBL and the mujahadeen. And sold chemical weapons to Saddam Hussein.
But hey, he had nice hair and that's good enough for me. Love ya, Gipper!

Ya I agree. Poor Rand. One man army. I also like the way he speaks. He tells it to you straight.
Straight? Ask him if he agrees with foreign aid to Israel.
If Israel needs it what's wrong with foreign aid? At least they don't hate us. What I do know is that Israel and Paul agrees that they don't want our aid because they don't need it. And if that's the case Paul has been in favor of pulling our aid out
You're right justangry. Rand Paul is the ONLY candidate for President that isn't a member of the CFR or the Trilateral Commission.
Every President since 1921 has been a member of the CFR, every Secretary of State, has been a member of the CFR, and every President has had numerous members of the CFR (and Trilateral Commission) in their administrations.
That's why Presidents and their political parties come and go, but the agenda always remains the same.
He is not a one man army if we...The People...stand up, wake up, and care about something outside our 4 walls!

Tim many have exactly the same policies as Obama or at least similar. Cruz and walker may not but the other Rinos certainly do.
 April 21, 2015 at 1:35pm
Well said Paul. Peace through strength. Don’t get easily involved in nation building and wars that cause us to stay a long time. We should be having people who live in those areas fight the evil. As Paul said the Kurds could be our boots on the ground if they had funding and training.
Vfor- just because it’s extremely difficult doesn’t mean God doesn’t call us to do it. Porn can be extremely difficult to overcome because how easily accessed it is everywhere but God still commands you not to do it.

Mind- more my second example with my roommate. He was in a masculine Christian household that condemned homosexuality and when he saw he liked guys but he hated it and tried to rid himself of it. If it was purely a choice he would let go of his like of men and stop the hell but couldn’t. Likewise I can’t always choose who I think is attractive. If I see a pretty girl, I can’t choose not to find her attractive. That’s why I said it depends. Sometimes choice sometimes not. That’s also the reason why people are given sins to overcome which is why homosexual Christians may be called on God to commit themselves to him and stay celibate because homosexuality is a sin.

We know Paul says getting married is good but being celibate and devoting your life to God. What if men who have an attraction to men or women who have an attraction to women are called upon by God to be celibate and devote themselves to him. Just a thought I’ve been having recently.

I believe it could be either a choice or born that way. I’ll give examples of both. My cousin Was born into a screwed up household with no dad, a crazy mom and only sisters. Soon he started showing homosexual tendencies. Because of his upbringing it’s easy to see how his life influenced him to have girlfriends and become gay. Now let’s take the flip side of that. My junior year roommate who is technically bi was in an extremely masculine household that was Christian. From an early age and still does have homosexual tendencies. He and other gay people I know and have read about felt this way from an extremely early age. As a matter if fact, As a Christian He wanted those things gone he hated it but didn’t have a choice no matter how much he wanted them gone. An then of course there is the obvious choices of say for instance people experimenting with homosexual things in colleges or parties which is so obviously a choice. So because of this and similar things I’ve come to see it’s both it just depends. Now how does that come together with God and the bible? Well I still think it’s wrong. It’s a sin obviously. But we are born with sin to overcome. It’s a challenge for us. Some people struggle with sexual sin, lying, getting angry easily and God tells us to overcome them all. Just as we are born in sin why isn’t homosexuality some need to overcome and deal with like that Mormon homosexual the blaze reported on vowing to be celibate?

i am not understanding which person was 'born that way'....Seems like both of your examples the upbringing of the person had a major influence.
Because when it comes to sexual sin it is the MOST difficult thing to overcome and that's not just homosexuality. Whether it's porn, sexual sin of whatever genre or pedophilia, it's all bad. But it's also one of thee worst sins to commit. And yes, I realize that God does not give sin a degree of bad and worse. They are all seen as being the same. But it's truly at a different level if we look at what God created sex for and our human relationships for. This was in some ways to mimic our own relationship with God. It's the ultimate relationship. Having that intimacy is the one thing that is so special. And I do think it is a sin that people have to put behind them. Otherwise they will keep commiting it. Same thing with alcoholics or murder.

I see, DLV - but it does not mean he was 'born that way'....I dont know what to call it though.
All behavior is a matter of choice. It may not feel like it, especially when one is entrenched in their addiction, but all behavior is choice. We make choices for all kinds of reasons, far too many to simply categorize and apply generalities. Although people might be like snowflakes, there are moral absolutes. Each individual has to seek out their own motivation for getting with the program. We extend to all their right to opinions, and consenting behaviors, and we are therefore obligated tolerate what happens behind closed doors as long as nobody is having their personal rights trampled, but that doesn't make every choice acceptable, or normal, or even understandable.
