The End of Foreign Aid & Yesterday’s Debate
“To me, foreign aid is taking money from poor people in this country and giving it to rich people in poor countries, and it becomes weapons of war, essentially, no well — no matter how well motivated it is.”
Paul’s political purity is truly a challenge to the Republican establishment. Establishment candidates have no interest in making real substantive cuts. Paul dared the other candidates to talk about real cuts. None, of course, took up the challenge. Paul’s purity makes his message appealing to us, but foreign to others. Yet, last night, much of Paul’s message was resonating with the audience and even with many of the candidates who hurried to shake the congressman’s hands after the debate.
