How Rand Paul Threatens Left and Right

While I’m not a fan or supporter of this guy, he may be opening some doors that those of us with a much more radical position can make use of in the future.

“The Kentucky senator has consistently challenged long-held GOP views on issues like the war on drugs and federal drug sentencing laws by taking positions that once would have been considered almost exclusively left. Paul has introduced legislation ending the practice of civil asset forfeitures—police taking and keeping someone’s property based on nothing more than suspicion—an issue that had previously received little attention in Washington. The libertarian-leaning senator’s well-received address at progressive Berkley last year on the dangers of the surveillance state would have been unthinkable for almost any Republican during the George W. Bush era.”
