Rand Paul Going After Babies

Much was made of Senate candidate Rand Paul’s support for business owners who want to engage in racial discrimination, setting up separate facilities to isolate African-Americans. Much less has been made, however, of some of Mr. Paul’s other extreme positions, such as absolving BP of responsibility for the Gulf oil spill and declaring that mountaintop coal mining ought to be appreciated for replacing the Appalachian mountains with great big fields of waste that will be better than the mountains because they’re flat.

Another area of Rand Paul extremism that has received little focus is his antipathy to immigration. Even though border crossings are dramatically down in recent years, Paul often speaks to whip up the false perception that there’s some sort of crisis in illegal immigration.

Recently, Rand Paul has expanded his anti-immigration fervor to include a particularly small target. Rand Paul is now going after the babies.

The Constitution declares that anyone born in the United States is an American citizen, but Rand Paul seems to believe that these particular American babies are a great danger. “That baby becomes a citizen, and I think that that should stop also,” Paul warns.

Rand Paul wants to change the Constitution to limit the legal rights currently given to American babies, stripping them of their citizenship. Why? What do these babies do that’s so terrible, other than being American? Is it really so awful for babies to be American?

I just don’t understand Rand Paul’s fear of babies, but I’ll do him the favor anyway of passing along his campaign’s message: Vote Rand Paul 2010 – Because The Baby Menace Must Stop!

    If Rand Paul wins Kentucky, then Ron Paul will win Iowa Caucus.

        BC Ron Paul can’t win the Iowa Straw poll unless Rand wins. That’s just how things work.

        Rand has to win Kentucky. Then after that Ron can win CPAC against and Iowa Straw poll. Then if all that happens he can win Iowa Caucus.

        • You’ve got a big flaw in your logical argument. The fact that Thing A can’t happen unless Thing B happens does not mean that Thing A will happen if Thing B happens. Do you understand that, qs?

          More topically, what do you think of Rand Paul’s political strategy of attacking the constitutional rights of babies? Recipe for victory?

          • qs

            Of course I support Rand Paul winning.

            Obama is not the “peace president” that the left thought they were voting for, but we all knew that in the first place.

            • Okay, qs. I see that you don’t want to acknowledge the serious flaw in your logic.

              You also don’t want to talk about the fact that Rand Paul’s Senate campaign is now making American babies the targets of political attacks.

              If you’re a Rand Paul supporter, I can see why you’re working so hard to avoid what his campaign is actually doing.

    Rand was talking about “Anchor Babies”, the babies that are born here by “Illegal Aliens”. They are then are givin US citizenship because of a law, not the constitution, that congress pased in order to gain the hispanic vote. It’s all really easy to figure out when you pull your head out of you rear, Peregrin Wood. Those kids born on US soil to “illegal Aliens should be depoted along with their parents that are on US soil Illegally.

    • Sorry, “WeSeeYou”, but I suggest you go read the Constitution: http://www.irregulartimes.com/constitution.html

      The 14th Amendment to the Constitution reads: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

      Are you so unpatriotic that you don’t know your own country’s Constitution?

      Those children you call “Anchor Babies” are American babies. Why are you and Rand Paul attacking American babies?
