CNN.... BE AWARE OF RAND PAUL LIES!



Rand Paul told New Hampshire audience the following: ..."fight for your right to be left alone." Wonder if he feels the same about Cliven Bundy's refusal to pay land taxes and his defiant stand against efforts to collect said taxes?

GOP Problem alert! 

As CNN's Dana Bash interviews GOP presidential aspirant, Rand Paul, a response to a question about gay marriage drew a conspicuously troublesome response. Paul used that favored GOP word: "states." 

States Rights is mere code for government differentiation the leads to discrimination. Recall the "States" during the Civil Rights Era of the 60s. Imagine states with legislatures ruled by Koch Brothers dark money with politicians subservient to the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).

"Well, no, the states will end up making the decisions on these things," Paul replied. "I think there's a religious connotation to this. I also believe people ought to be treated fairly under the law. I see why if the marriage contract conveys certain things, that if you want to marry another woman, you can do that and have a contract. But the thing is that the religious connotation of marriage that has been going on for thousands of years, I still want to preserve that."

Paul has gone on record in the past with his views that private business owners should not be forced to serve or provide accommodation to all who wish to patron the establishment. 

GOP Problem alert!

If the US (and voters) allows states to call the shots on fair and balanced life in the nation, our quality of life will deteriorate like a fizzled-out Alka Seltzer (Tm). We are seeing state legislatures reversing voters election preferences regarding LGBT Rights. We are seeing cases in a couple of states where legislators are forbid from using the words "Climate change." How about the reality of GOP governed states that are refusing life sustaining medical care via the ACA based in pure political obstruction?

Paul's continued affinity for states rights and the ironclad GOP lock-step commitment to state's rights spells doom for a comprehensive fair, balanced and equal nation under the law.
