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

Washington Examiner, by Charlie Spiering

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.

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.

Like it or not, the world is a dangerous place, and getting more so. None of the portents look good.

He was in louder voice than ever Thursday, reminding a televised forum in Moscow that his parliament has authorized him to use force “if necessary” in eastern Ukraine, which he called, for the first time, “New Russia.” Whether portent or not, leaflets

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.

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

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 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

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen.

The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

Joan Eisenstodt didn´t have a stopwatch when she went to see an ear, nose and throat specialist recently, but she is certain the physician was not in the exam room with her for more than three or four minutes. "He looked up my nose, said it was inflamed, told me to see the nurse for a prescription and was gone," said the 66-year-old Washington, D.C., consultant, who was suffering from an acute sinus infection. When she started protesting the doctor´s choice of medication, "He just cut me off totally," she said. "I´ve never been in and out from a visit faster." These days,

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections.
