Senator Rand Paul smacked George Stephanopoulos around like a piñata on Sunday. The knock-down drag-out battle began when the subject of election integrity came up. Often called a “lone wolf” warrior in Washington, all the ABC talking head had to do was crack open the door and the Kentucky Libertarian pounced through it and went straight for the jugular.
Rand Demands election integrity
Rand Paul, like his father Ron Paul before him, has become a fixture at the nation’s capitol and earned a solid reputation as a defender of Lady Liberty’s honor.
He’s reportedly “stared down threats of physical violence more than once, gotten shot, gotten pushed around and knocked down, and continues to rise again to demand integrity in the elections on behalf of his Kentucky constituents.” He certainly did on Sunday, at a time when America needs a champion.

Senator Rand Paul has a reputation for doing his homework and so far, he’s not convinced one way or the other on the subject of alleged election fraud. “I don’t know if the voter fraud changed the election, but I have an open mind about it,” he told the ABC host.
The part that worries him is that the press isn’t willing to have an open mind. “Journalists should want to hear both sides of the issue.” He wasted no time zeroing in on Stephanopoulos. “You are not a journalist,” he accused. “You are just saying that Republicans are liars.”
Then it got good. “There are two sides to every story. George, you’re forgetting who you are,” Rand reminded.
“You’re inserting yourself into the story to say I’m a liar because I want to look at election fraud and I want to look at secretaries of state who illegally changed the voter laws without the permission of their state legislatures. That is incontrovertible, it happened.”
You can’t sweep it under the rug
As much as Democrats would love to move forward in total lock-step unity, it’s not going to happen. National Guard or no National Guard. “You can’t just sweep it under the rug and say, ‘oh, nothing to see here,’ and ‘everybody is a liar’ and ‘you’re a fool if you bring this up.’ You’re inserting yourself into the story.”
“A journalist would hear both sides, and there are two sides of a story.” Especially this story. As Senator Rand Paul passionately explained, “In Wisconsin, tens of thousands of absentee votes had only the name on it and no address.” That’s not legal. “Historically those were thrown out, this time they weren’t. They made special accommodations.”
Anything that isn’t convenient gets blamed on Covid. “It’s a pandemic. They changed the law after the fact. That’s wrong. That’s unconstitutional.” Another thing that is unconstitutional is the continued impeachment trial in the Senate.
Rand Paul reminded everyone of that on Tuesday but it didn’t stop the juggernaut. Legal or not, Democrats are going through with it, even though they already know they only have 5 Republican traitors and that’s not nearly enough.
Speaking of Republican traitors, it’s clear that very few of them actually adhere to Republican party principles. They sold those out to globalist greed long ago. Senator Rand Paul isn’t a Republican. He’s a card carrying Libertarian, like his dad. The Libertarian Party web site assures conservatives that they respect “you as a unique and responsible individual.”
They’ve been doing it since 1971. Unlike “moderate” RINO Republicans, libertarians “strongly oppose any government interference into their personal, family, and business decisions.” In other words, “essentially, we believe all Americans should be free to live their lives and pursue their interests as they see fit as long as they do no harm to another.”
