Senator Rand Paul on Consequences of Name Calling

Rand Paul presents a lesson we can all learn from in this article entitled Rand Paul: Ted Cruz ‘Pretty Much Done For’ in Senate:

“I would defund not only Planned Parenthood but hundreds and hundreds of regulations, hundreds and hundreds of wasteful programs. I would take them all out, put them on the table and say ‘You know what Democrats, it doesn’t take 60 votes to defund something, it’s actually going to take 60 votes to fund any of these programs,’ vote on them one at a time and we will see how many of these crazy programs get 60 votes. My guess would be very few, but that would take the courage to let the spending expire and start anew and let new programs all require 60 votes to pass,” Paul said.

Yesterday, my daughter Ashley and I attended an event in Orem, Utah. We stood in a packed room with Caucasian mostly men in their thirties and then Senator Rand Paul arrived and addressed us.

Afterwards I bought Rand Paul’s latest book and got in line to have him sign it. When it was my turn I said, “Senator, if you stand up and speak and 20% of people love you, 20% hate you and 60% are undecided, whom do you market to?” He said, “You stand up for what you believe in.” I said, “No, you listen to your love group, record what they like and market those benefits to the swing group.” By then he was already posing with the next person but I had the same discussion with one of his campaign managers named Erin Madsen.
