Stand with Rand

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has split with leading Republicans over the legal status of Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.  This marks him as a man of principle, and a contender for Jeremiah’s Centrist Hall of Fame.  Like his father, Senator Paul defies classification because his opinions come from a place of consistency – not the situational morality of our traditional right and left.

Think about it.  If you were studying to be a senator for either party, you would have to learn the positions by rote – this kind of freedom is good, but that other freedom is bad.  They just don’t make sense.  The Paul family has developed a framework that is logically consistent.  Jeremiah imagines them sitting around the dining table, figuring it out – or, maybe they have read the Constitution.
