Rand Paul is named for Ayn Rand and his Republican idiot mindset is the reason the USA is declining and falling faster than the Roman Empire. Unfortunately he may want to be president.

“With regard to the idea of whether you have a right to health care, you have realize what that implies,” the senator said. “It’s not an abstraction. I’m a physician. That means you have a right to come to my house and conscript me.”
“It means you believe in slavery,” Paul added. “It means that you’re going to enslave not only me, but the janitor at my hospital, the person who cleans my office, the assistants who work in my office, the nurses.”
“Basically, once you imply a belief in a right to someone’s services — do you have a right to plumbing? Do you have a right to water? Do you have right to food? — you’re basically saying you believe in slavery.”
“I’m a physician in your community and you say you have a right to health care,” Paul continued. “You have a right to beat down my door with the police, escort me away and force me to take care of you? That’s ultimately what the right to free health care would be.”

Wow ! What a jerk. Still, he does have a right to his opinion even if that means that we are all enslaved and forced to listen to it.

I remain perpetually staggered that the world looks towards America for anything other than as an example of how not to be.

I've been in IT for 35+ years and that is some of the worst logic I have ever seen.
"And endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, among these are LIFE, liberty and the persuit of happiness."
If we don't have the right to acquire services in a free society, then by inversion we do have the right to kill and pillage those withholding those services from us.
Of course Rand conveniently omitted the concept that no one forced him to become a physician. He can always quit.
His little rant is a prime example of the neo-con nonsense. Silly bit or twisted logic aim at those who will not discern the flaws. “All balls no brains!”

"Dr." Paul is a dick, indeed. He wasn't, however, named for Ayn.

On the other hand, I'm sure he doesn't mind being associated with her.

Fucking logic fail, how does it work?

fucking psychotic.

I wrote a really long response about slavery, insurance and society, but I deleted it. Basically, Rand Paul is a cunt. I don't have any plans to enslave him and make him perform my healthcare personally, but I do think he's a mental midget. He should take his logical fallacies and get lost.

Aleleeinn said...

One thing that would SEEM obvious would be that he would support others choice. HENCE PRO-CHOICE. Yet this is another pro-lifer. Should women be concerned that HE is limiting their choices with their own bodies.
I only find this interesting as a logical absurdity. Which is what his whole speech was.

I think he could have shortened it down to, "The only right the Right believes in is the right to die a slow painful death in the gutter." Oh and "God bless America" of course.


Aleleeinn said...

He can't mention god. God limits his choices by threatening hell if Rand sins against him.
If this were anywhere other than politics it would be ROFL material.
I do so love to beat people with their own idiot logic.
