Randal, We Hardly Knew Ye

You can either look at the world realistically, trying to get to the truth of matters, or you can look at the world through an ideology, forcing it to fit one narrative or another. There are thousands of ideologies, but the predominant one in this country at this time is liberalism. Now, "liberalism" has meant different things at different times, but what it means to us now is a belief in the human "blank slate," that is, that all human beings are equal in potential. That means there really isn't any such thing as intrinsic differences between individuals, sexes, races, ethnicities, or nations. Obviously idiotic and unscientific, but one of the pillars of liberalism. Added to that, and of course in slight contradiction to it, is the notion of the perfectibility of man. This leads to all sorts of plans for big government spending and regulation in order to bring about this perfection. Conservatives aren't supposed to buy into either of these errors, but they, or at least their self-styled leaders, do. And libertarians aren't supposed, at least, to buy into the second, but when you think about it, if you really, really, really believe in this equality of potential, you always end up with that same big number two idea that you can make everybody equal in fact. So, libertarians always end up cooperating with liberals one way or the other in their quest for perfection, no matter what they say.

A good example of this is Rand Paul, who is on record as saying that it's unacceptable that Blacks are imprisoned at a higher rate than Whites. This is because, you see, everybody is equal, and therefore any difference in outcome are attributable to racism, right?

In short, Rand has accepted the liberal narrative on race, and is therefore indistinguishable from a liberal in any meaningful way.

And, again, since everybody is equal, it's wrong or insane or something to prohibit anybody from immigrating because they're equal. This is something every damn candidate agrees with, including Paul, and with the sole exception of Trump.

Again, unless you accept this wacko theory of total human fungibilty, voting for any of the candidates except Trump is idiotic.

Flailing Rand Paul Goes Full Cuckservative (“Trump Must Be Stopped”) But Paleo-Libertarianism May Emerge From Wreckage

Rand Paul could have been a contender. He had a solid network of seasoned activists stationed around the country, access to his father’s list for fundraising, and has even shown real political skill in the past in correctly framing his positions. Despite his infuriating flip-flops, Paul ultimately did vote against the Gang of Eight Amnesty/Immigration Surge.
But as seen with the Jack Hunter fiasco, Rand Paul (and the rest of the Beltway Libertarian Movement) seems to have gotten high on his own supply when it comes to minority outreach and anti-White racial pandering [Rand Paul: White Renegade of the Year 2013by Gregory Hood, American Renaissance, December 31, 2013]
Not surprisingly, in a primary season dominated by populism and a conservative rebellion against political correctness, goofy posturing about being a “Detroit Republican,” cringe inducing photos with Al Sharpton and aligning with black rioters hasn’t helped Rand Paul at all.
But Rand Paul knows what’s wrong. It’s not his fault or the fault of his noodly armed advisors. It’s the fault of… Donald Trump.  Because he isn’t sensitive enough.
“I think we, the Republican Party, becomes the party of angry people that insinuate that most immigrants are drug dealers or rapists, that’s a terrible direction for our party,” he said. “We’re never going to grow as a party. We’re never going to increase our vote among the Hispanic population, the black population, among women all those things we need to expand our party.
“Donald Trump takes us in the wrong direction. He would be a disaster. We’ll be slaughtered in a landslide. That’s why my every waking hour is to try to stop Donald Trump from being our nominee.”
[Rand Paul: “My Every Waking Hour Is To Try To Stop Donald Trump,” by Cathy Burke, Newsmax, January 15, 2016]
However amusing it is to see Rand Paul emulating the brilliant campaign strategy of Jeb Bush, there is something deeply disgusting about this. At a time when other leading candidates such as Marco Rubio and Chris Christie seem to be advocating war with Russia as the main reason to support them, Rand Paul is redefining libertarianism as essentially cucking for minorities and pandering to every group except Whites.
This is especially foolish, and condescending, because non-Whites explicitly support big government and left wing economic policies, no matter what white libertarian Senators, white libertarian staffers, and white libertarian students tell them they should support. At this point, it is as if Rand Paul is deliberately trying to ensure libertarianism remains an ideological dead end and a waste of time.
Besides, if you actually care about things such as limited government, the power of the feds, or long lost rights such as freedom of association, you should be angry. As Trump says, I’ll accept the mantle of anger.
Luckily, not all libertarians are falling for Rand’s cringing approach. Lew Rockwell, whose website was once the home of Right-Libertarians, seems fed up with Rand Paul’s stupidity and sneeringly characterized Paul the Lesser’s position as, “Mass immigration is the core GOP value.” [Rand: Trump Must Be Stoppedby Lew Rockwell, LRC Blog, January 16, 2016]
LewRockwell.com has also been putting out some strong material lately against what the late Murray Rothbard called the “Revolt Against Nature,” Egalitarianism [The Menace of Egalitarianismby Lew Rockwell, LewRockwell.com, October 5, 2015]
The Manlet Rand’s campaign is already all but over. Years of careful planning and pandering, “playing the game” as Jack Hunter called it, is about to end in embarrassing failure. But maybe something good will come out of it.
Even as the typical “Student for Liberty” continues his devolution into some horrifying combination of an SJW mixed with a Bronie, the more intelligent, courageous, and consistent libertarian may be able to restart the long dormant Paleo-Libertarian tendency.

    Paul cucks the hardest because of his record. Rand is the one candidate who's come out for total freedom of association for Whites. The "manlet" deserves 10x more respect than Trump.

  2. Rnad is following the groveling of his pappy, Daddy Nobucks. He was all in on race realism when he needed the money, but after they let him on stage he went Cuckold Vice Shitty. Marchin Lootin Kang and dose peeps, all he talks now is that nigger be needing mo money and freeing from their jail cells so they can look for the real killers of racism and people who aren't dumber than shit. Don't come around here no more, Libertarian. Take a Galt...
