Student to Rand Paul: I don´t
want government to leave me alone

Washington Examiner, by Charlie Spiering

Original Article

During the Q and A session after Sen. Rand Paul’s speech at Howard University, one student explained that he was not a fan of his view of government. “You say you want to provide a government that leaves us alone, quite frankly, I don’t want that,” the student said. “I want a government that is going to help me.” The student insisted that he wanted assistance for his college education and asked if Rand Paul supported a culture change within the nation. “Do you Sen. Rand Paul have a formulated solution to come up with new American values

What a pathetic person. What a sad worldview that any one of us would desire government "help" more than individual liberty.

Dictators love weak attitudes like this, and our current federal government has many dictatorial attributes. God help us.

This "student" has the same attitude as the losers during Katrina when they took over and destroyed a $100 million dollar stadium after being "rescued" from a roof! They never consider "helping" themselves, but then why should they when racist-democrats continue to keep them in their place, so they will vote the "right" way. BTW, If obama had a son.....

THIS is why this country is headed for a historical period of decline and why I´m glad I´m getting old.

There´s no changing this mindset overnight, it took 50 years to be put in place, these people will have to pass away before we climb out of this.

My answer to him would be: If a boy next door or across the street that you didn´t know asks you to help pay for his college education for 4 years, what would you say?

When he refuses because of his own financial circumstances then he should have an idea of why taxpayers don´t want to contribute to his education.

That´s why they have Scholarships and Student Loans. If he doesn´t understand it by then maybe he needs to redo high school from a school that teaches rather than indoctrinates.

Yeah, I would have liked some assistance with my college education, too. I had a 4.0 GPA and was on the Dean´s Honor List every semester, but every scholarship available during the 5 years I got my Associates and Bachelors degrees were limited to minorities and females. They might have well just said, "White Males need not apply."
That limited me to school loans and Workstudy. It´s all a racket. Tuition was always due a week before the loan got to me, so it had to go on my credit card. I honestly believe it´s all collusion between the school, government, and the credit card companies.

Per the Communist Party USA...

"The children will reap all the benefits of socialist child care, free nurseries and schools with the very best facilities and teachers. Children will have wonderful recreational and sports facilities. They will have the option to choose whatever career they wish, and the free education and training to achieve it.

Some ask whether guaranteeing basic necessities, free education and health care will encourage people to avoid working, or doing one´s best. The principle of socialism is: From each according to his/her ability, to each according to his/her work."

Of course the last word of the last paragraph is NOT what Marx taught. The word was Need and not Work. In any case, as is Obama, this kid is a disciple.

Following No. 8´s train of thought. Our present lib gov´t is encouraging illegitimacy among the lower classes that is astonishing. Kids born out of wedlock, kids born out of gay unions & the like don´t really have two parents they can grow up relying on. Gov´t is the de facto "Mom & Dad" - it is all a conspiracy to substitute gov´t for a real family & buy their loyalty.

That student´s question cries out for a response that would have educated him/her and all the many others who are reading about it. Senator Paul missed a golden opportunity. It made me wish Senator Ted Cruz had been there to answer it.

The so called student is already brain dead. Some day in the near future he may end up with a job. His attitude will no doubt change when he gets his first real paycheck- minus 50% for taxes. Money does not grow on trees (ben just prints it). Sooner or later we all pay in terms of higher taxes or higher prices and loss of purchasing power. This fool doesn´t realize his turn will arrive shortly.

We MUST get rid of the Federal Department of Education, and take back educating our young to the local districts, which would choose the course of study to exclude all the social crap.
Think about it, little boys get punished for munching a pop tart into a gun shape, or point a finger like a gun and get punished. By the time they are 21 they will be terrified at the thought of a gun.
Then they will allow the abolition of the 2nd amendment.

First off, the student´s question is nonsensical.
That said, here´s my "formulated solution" to your college assitance challenge: we, th government, will pay for your college education, but, we will decide IF you get to enter higher education and we will decide WHAT you will study. After all, that´s the way the other socialist countries do it. Sound fair junior?

The National Givernment has no money, except the money it extracts from citizens. So the money you want from the givernment to support you comes from someone who is paying taxes.

Oh...whatever, there is no way to explain to these indoctrinated students that the communist world they want is not "caring" or sharing, except with the elite political class. Like those who attended the SoulTrain Sequester Jester at Our House last night.

Atlanta – Vegetarians may have a lower BMI and drink alcohol sparingly, but vegetarian diets are tied to generally poorer health, poorer quality of life and a higher need for health care than their meat-eating counterparts. A new study from the Medical University of Graz in Austria finds that vegetarians are more physically active, drink less alcohol and smoke less tobacco than those who consume meat in their diets. Vegetarians also have a higher socioeconomic status and a lower body mass index. But the vegetarian diet — characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake

Berkeley, Calif. — Delivering a rare speech for a Republican at this bastion of liberalism, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul on Wednesday was given multiple standing ovations by the left-wing audience after railing against government surveillance and warning the students: “Your right to privacy is under assault.” “I am here to tell you that if you own a cell phone, you’re under surveillance,” he told the crowd. Paul’s address at the Berkeley Forum on the campus of the University of California at Berkeley focused on the National Security Agency’s collection of telephone metadata and the debate over privacy.

A man was arrested after Las Vegas police said he pulled a gun on a group of entertainers from “Thunder from Down Under” at the Excalibur Tuesday night. The man, described as being between the ages of 25 and 30, went behind the stage and entered the “Thunder from Down Under” locker room about 9 p.m. According to police, he stole belongings from the group. Several performers from the show later confronted the suspect when they saw him with their property, police said. The suspect then pulled out a handgun and a struggle ensued.

Frustration with the search for missing flight MH370 boiled over into chaotic scenes as Chinese relatives were dragged away from journalists. They were attempting to speak to Chinese journalists outside the daily press conference in Kuala Lumpur. A BBC reporter was pushed away from the relatives, who were carrying banners criticising the handling of the case. Teams from 26 countries are trying to find flight MH370, which went missing on 8 March with 239 people on board. One of the relatives, a middle-aged woman, cried: "They give different messages every day! Where´s the flight now? Find our relatives! Find the aircraft!" The Malaysian government said

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia - The FBI is helping Malaysian authorities investigate deleted data on a flight simulator belonging to the pilot of the missing Malaysia Airlines plane, while distraught relatives of the passengers unleashed their anger Wednesday, wailing in frustration at 12 days of uncertainty. The anguish of relatives of the 239 people on Flight 370 boiled over at a briefing near Kuala Lumpur´s airport. Two Chinese women who shouted at Malaysian authorities and unfurled a banner accusing officials of "hiding the truth" were removed from the room.

The Associated Press has stepped up its attack on White House efforts to block coverage of events involving President Obama, warning that once access is cut, “we´ll never get it back.” In the latest media charge that the White House has reneged on promises to be “transparent,” two of AP´s White House staff told a convention in Denver this week that the president´s team often bars coverage of Obama events because they are “hypersensitive” about his Image. At the Newspaper Association of America´s mediaXchange convention in Denver, AP White House photographer Charles Dharapak said that instead of letting reporters and photographers in

The seasonally adjusted price index for uncooked ground beef jumped 3.8 percent from January to February, as the average price for a pound of 100-percent ground chuck rose from approximately $3.59 in January to a new record high of $3.73 in February, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The BLS’s seasonally adjusted price index measures the relative change in the price of product from a baseline of 100. From January to February, the price index for uncooked ground beef rose from 248.864 to 258.323, its highest level ever. The 258.323 price index also indicates that the

"Women are still the ones that are carrying the greatest burden when it comes to trying to balance family and work," President Obama said last week to a group of women who serve in the U.S. Congress. With this in mind, he is now planning a "White House Summit on Working Families" to take place this summer. Obama is no doubt preparing to cast stones at the private sector. He really ought to look at his own administration. Since Obama has been in office, according to data from the Office of Personnel Management, the percentage of women in the civilian federal work force

Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth.
