Yes, most of Aid to Pakistan went for military support/hardware.  Rand Paul wants to use those funds for domestic infrastructure.
Whose infrastructure?

Who cares, what a sellout. Favoring spending our tax money on "shovel ready jobs"?

Apparently having his ribs broken was a wake up call.

Sellout???  Thats a little rough. Look at you, Jeff...throwing Rand Raul under the bus.

A year ago, you had nothing but accolades for him. And I was saying how un-libertarian he was.

What a difference a year makes!

Wasn't he talking about infrastructure spending as a good thing?? Is that a lie?

Infrastructure spending is always a good thing.  As long as the money isn't robbed at gunpoint.  The minute the government starts pointing its guns at me, a citizen who pays for their guns 'n ammo, to take my money, I have a major problem with that.

Anyone who doesn't -  anyone who thinks it's OK for government to point guns at a guy going home from work to take part of his paycheck - anyone who thinks that some government functions are so important that they justify that - has no morality whatsoever. 

None.

They are no better than a pimp who forces twelve year old girls in the Detroit to prostitute themselves at gunpoint.

They are no better than a crack addicted skel holding a board with a nail in it to threaten little old ladies to take their Geritol money.

Except that at least the guy holding the board with nails has the balls to face the little old lady himself.  People who want government to rob little old ladies to pay for what they want government to do are the worst type of low-life cowards.

They disgust me more than I can bear.  The thought of them makes me want to projectile vomit.

Jeff . . .

We disagree on taxation, hopefully we agree that there is no Constitutional authority to build "infrastructure" beyond post roads, which were adequately completed so far as the national government was concerned 100 years or more ago.

If New York City needs a new bridge, New York City should pay for it.

If Boston needs a subway, Boston should pay for it.

If the streets in Pittsburgh need repair, Pittsburgh should pay for it.

It's simply not a job we assigned to the Federal government, not did we give them such authority.

I thought Rand Paul was aware of that.

well, not really.  He was just saying instead of the government hand-outs going to Pakistan for weapons that will be used to kill US troops, they could be put to better use for domestic infrastructure projects.

He even names one specifically - a bridge somewhere - "We have a bridge between Kentucky and Ohio... it would cost about a half a billion..." Then he was cut off!!

The media hates it when people are specific.

Instead of handouts going to anyone, the money should be left with those who earned it, then they can decide if they want to give it away and to who.

That's a pretty standard libertarian position. We don't want the federal government taxing us to build bridges anywhere.

So you oppose bridges, now?  You think cars should be amphibious?  Or do you think people should just "know their place" and stay within whatever boundaries rivers set for them since that is the hand of God?

He doesn't oppose bridges you ignorant fool. He opposes taxes to build bridges.

And he opposes sending guns to Pakistan too as he said. He wants to keep them in the US to deal with domestic problems being caused by Americans.

You'll never be a libertarian sweet ass.
