Political Chameleon Rand Paul Calls Ronald Reagan "A Leader Who Made Us All Proud" After Bashing Reagan For Years
By Martin Hill
February 8, 2015


Rand Paul, who's quickly becoming the parody of a pandering politician, is at it again.

On Jan. 6th, the presidential hopeful and quintessential 'leaf in the wind' tweeted "Happy Birthday Ronald Reagan! You're a leader who made us all proud."

Aside from the lunacy of wishing a dead person a happy birthday, there's Rand Paul's extensive record of bashing Reagan. (For the record, Reagan does indeed deserve bashing and exposure for his true record, which was far from 'fiscally conservative' as all these phony republicans constantly claim.)

The hypocrisy here is when Rand then turns around pandering to the GOP base and calls Reagan a leader who made us all proud.

The following six videos reveal what Rand really thinks of Reagan:

In July 2007 in New Hampshire, Rand said: "The deficit went through the roof under Reagan. So how long did it take Ron Paul to figure out that the guy he had liked, endorsed, campaigned for, campaigned for him? The very first budget. Ron Paul voted "no" against the very first Reagan budget… Everybody loved this "great" budget. It was a $100 billion in debt. This was three times greater than Jimmy Carter's worst deficit."

In January 2008 in Montana, Paul said: "You know, we wanted Reagan to veto a budget or to have balanced budgets and he didn't do it. And it wasn't anything personal against him. I think his philosophy was good. I just don't know that he had the energy or the follow-through to get what we needed."

In 2009, Paul said: "high hopes" that people had for Reagan were "fairly quickly" dashed. "A lot of the things that we believed would happen didn't," he said. "People want to like Reagan. He's very likable. And what he had to say most of the time was a great message. But the deficits exploded under Reagan. The Democrats said, "Well, the deficit's going up because you reduced the tax rates and supply side economics doesn't work." But the interesting thing is, if you look at the numbers, tax rates went down in the early '80s, tax revenue did rise. The reason the deficits exploded is they ignored spending. Domestic spending went up at a greater clip under Reagan than it did under Carter."

In this next one, Rand says: "Why did the deficit rise? Because spending rose more dramatically under Reagan than it did under Carter. Well, you say, 'Reagan's a conservative, Carter's a liberal.' Not necessarily always what it seems... When we had Reagan, we were fiscal conservatives. Well, unfortunately, even that wasn't true. When Reagan was elected in 1980, the first bill they passed was called the Gramm-Latta bill of 1981, and Republicans pegged it as this great step forward. Well, Jimmy Carter's last budget was about $34 or $36 billion in debt. Well, it turns out, Reagan's first budget turned out to be $110 billion dollars in debt. And each successive year, the deficit rose throughout Reagan's two terms."

Here, Rand says: "As Republicans, it's been very easy for us to say we're fiscally conservative and we're for balanced budgets. It's never happened. We were in charge in the Reagan term, the next Bush's term, this last Bush. The deficits were horrendous under the Republicans…During Reagan's two terms, domestic spending went up faster than Jimmy Carter."

Next: "We live in such bad times that if you don't have somebody who truly believes that we need to take an ax to government, you're not going to get anything done…Even when we elected Reagan. A lot of us loved the rhetoric of Reagan. My dad supported Reagan in 1976 when only four US congressmen would stand up for him. The deficit still exploded…The deficit exploded because domestic spending rose faster under Reagan, so did military, but domestic spending rose faster under Reagan than under Jimmy Carter…We have to admit our failings because we're not going to get new people unless we become believable as a party again."

On January 30th, Rand was the guest of honor at a 'Reagan Day Dinner' in Dallas. Although Reagan actually increased both the size and scope of government during his two terms, the actor is often portrayed as the ideal of a 'limited government' conservative. Reagan himself was photographed attending Bohemian Grove occult gatherings in Northern California with Richard Nixon and often consulted with mediums in the White House with his wife Nancy, despitebeing portrayed in the media as some sort of conservative Christian. Last year Nancy Reagan met with socialist gun-grabber and gubernatorial disaster Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Last year Reagan's son Michael Reagan proudly tweeted that he 'trusts' Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Reagan has boasted on Facebook that "My father served on the Ford Commission that investigated the Warren Commission Report on the Kennedy Killing.."

In 2008, Reagan publicly advocated the murder of anti-war activist Mark Dice on his radio show, boasting "I'll pay for the bullet." Following is an index of our work on that issue. I ended up speaking with Reagan on the telephone, and he told me that he would apologize the next day on air, which he did: Index of our articles on INFOWARS.COM, PrisonPlanet.com, Audio, Photos & coverage we got on KFI radio.

  • In October, California launched its' own Pilot Program To Charge Drivers By The Mile. The author admits that the law will "burden families." Carpool lanes in Southern California, which were paid for years ago by taxpayers, are now being turned into toll roads to fleece the people. Orange County, CA alone was issuing 15,000 photo citations PER DAY after motorists were confused about the new system.
