Perhaps if wars were declared by Congress and we fought to win the wars you might have a point.
Just because it is a statute and not a "rule" still doesn't make the statute Constitutional. The 1st Amendment still trumps the statute but the Constitution is not something libs like a lot anyway.
"These results include the continued erosion of our freedoms " Need I remind you others also have the freedom to disagree under the Constitution. Stand for the Constitution before a Party.
Think I'll just check the "Cliffs" version Weds.
The Establishment/Rino/French/Status Quo Republicans, the Rockefeller, Nixon, Bush, Christie, Boehner, McConnell, McCain, Graham wing of the Republican Party are big government statists just as the Democrats and produce the same results. Albeit more slowly.
Tell me you are a Republican or a Democrat, I know how you will vote. Tell me you are a liberal or a conservative, I know very little. Are you a fiscal liberal or a fiscal conservative? Are you socially liberal or a socially conservative? How do you prioritize one view against the other? I will tell you how. Can we afford the view without sacrificing Constitutional liberties of the individual.
"Many of these libertarians are part of the “socially liberal but fiscally conservative” set that always, every time, invariably, ends up supporting the social liberal over the fiscal conservative. " This is totally untrue. A fiscal conservative will always vote his pocket book and vigorously fight anything that take away individual liberty. True libertarians have very little concern on "social" issues unless they impinge on Constitutional liberty. Marry or smoke whomever or whatever you want. I don't care.

Rand Paul is the Tea Party. Silly.
