Listening to Rand Paul

I have just been listening to Rand Paul's acceptance speech.

He called Evo Morales and Hugo Chavez "petty dictators" which he must KNOW is a ridiculous lie - hence he is a dishonest liar. He also said that "Obama apologizes for America's greatness". What kind of crap is that? Obama is every bit as arrogant, imperialist and flag-waving as Dubya, Papa-Bush or even Reagan.

He also seems to be oblivious to the absolutely obvious fact that Capitalism, being based on infinite growth in a finite environment, is to our planet what a malignant tumor is to a body: a death sentence unless it is eradicated. Amazing that a medical doctor would not realize this simple fact.

I conclude that Rand Paul is just a piece of garbage. How a seemingly honest and principled man like Ron Paul could just stand there while his son was spewing that kind of nonsense is beyond me.

To paraphrase Orwell, if there is hope, it must be with the progressive (real) Left.

That is my personal conclusion.
