RandPaul_ReturnsMoney.jpg
Rand Paul puts the money where his mouth is. For the second year in a row he didn’t spend all the money allocated for his senate office’s operating expenses. He’ll be sending a $600,000 check to the U.S. Treasury. Last year he returned $500,000. It’s so shocking to see a politician doing what he said he’d do, we’re almost ready to forget who is father is.

I appreciate it, but it’s a drop in the bucket. We need more people to do this.
I remember when I was in the Air Force, when we were a few weeks away from the new fiscal year, they would come and tell us how much of our budget we didn’t spend, and we had to use it up or lose money next year.
Sounds like the military has been run by the libtards for a long time.

All the government agencies are like that. Spend if or lose it. Something needs to change.

Rand is way better then his old man, at least so far. If he can ditch the tin foil hat elements, the 9/11 truther BS, & the “let’s have no presence outside our borders” crap that Ron has parroting like that dumbass crowley, he could be 1 of the people who might save this country.

Its called leading by example. Something the rest of congress should strive to do.

The rest of the Republicans haven’t even figured out leading, much less by example.

Too bad the money he returned will just be lost or wasted by the Corporate Greed run Federal Reserve anyway. He should have used that extra cash to start efforts to audit the Fed.

Let’s think about your post for a minute: CORPORATE greed of the FEDERAL reserve…. That makes absolutely no fracking sense….

The Federal Reserve is a private bank, no different from any other greedy corporation. You’ve been brainwashed for the past 100 years since 1913 into thinking that the government actually controls the nation’s wealth when in reality it was stolen.

Then in 1964, Corporate Greed went all out and stole our gold and silver.

The Federal Reserve is a bank that exists by government charter that is useful in taking the control of interest rates away from the free market and regulating monetary supply to meed the demands of the politicians who otherwise could not fund their vote buying schemes and feeding your avarice.

They are the mechanism by which the government controls the wealth and in a free market they would not exist. Of course a free market is a horror to you. That would mean you had to work instead of expecting the rest of us to pay your fair share.

BTW, it was a long process but we broke completely with the gold standard in 1971 and not 1964. Please learn something. I get tired of spanking you with facts.

TURDS!
1913 was the domain of Wilson, the progressive, big government, socialist. Not corporate greed, socialist and government greed.

Nope, not Corporate. GOVERNMENT! The only way they could continues spending was to make the money worthless. And I haven’t been brainwashed EVER, much less for some 40 years before I was born. You would know more about brainwashing than I since you have soooo benefitted by that approach.

This little boy actually thinks he’s telling us something we don’t know. Of course we think the Federal Reserve is a government agency, and he’s the one showing up with this amazing, little known fact.

It’s not a government agency. It’s a private corporate entity disguised as one deliberately set up to steal the nation’s wealth.

Corporate Greed stole our gold.

” by the Corporate Greed run Federal Reserve anyway”

So what you’re saying is all the money Rand sent back will be used to feed your avarice. Why don’t you do something to fight the corporatism John. Get a job and stop giving them an excuse to print the money to support your greed.

According to the 2013 budget, we are wasting just as much if not more on useless wars and aide to other countries then we are on entitlements. We could just as easily cut back and almost eliminate our bloated foreign policy, yet you show absolutely no efforts to reform that. You’d rather have fellow US citizens die and starve then show any effort to cut back on corrupt aid to other countries who hate us anyway.

You are truly a moron. I support a free market that would not allow for either ventures. Remember I, unlike you, am a libertarian.

But you could never go for that system. that would cut off your freebees. You might have to get a job. Then you’d be like me, someone pumping sixty percent of their income into a system that you get fat on while those that really need it have to starve to support your greed. Thanks for the corporatism John, but not really . . . it sucks if you are the one paying for it.

Pleaseenumerate which wars we are i that are worthless? Now I grant you the current definition of “fighting” a war needs some tweaking, but generally our troops are in areas where people have threatened the USA. It is their constitutional duty to fight. You should do your part and join the military. You would benefit enormously from the training.

I don’t think so. It would grind him up and hopefully spit out a functional human being. The militaryhas straightened out worse than the creep. I do notice that he never even SUGGESTS that with his basketweaving degree he could join the military as an OFFICER and be set for life, instead of mooching off his evidently poor family (since they qualify for food stamps, they must be poor.)

If he can do 13 pushups he can get out of Reception and into Basic.. Its good for the soul. I caught up with a couple guys in AIT later, that were held back a couple weeks before Basic, and they were all growed up then. I say go for it John
