After 12 years in the U.S. Senate, Dr. Rand Paul’s latest campaign ad features what he apparently regards as one of his most significant achievements: he did not go to Paris. Where else did he not go? This self-described freedom fighter also did not go to Ukraine, and would leave the real freedom fighters there to their own devices rather than help their struggle against Vladimir Putin, the greatest threat to U.S. and world security since World War II, a Hitler with nuclear weapons.
Paul also points with pride to his returning part of his Senate office budget to the U.S. Treasury. This is indeed commendable. But in view of his 12-year record, characterized by remarkable ineffectiveness as a legislator who clashed with Republicans and Democrats alike, he should return the entire salary. Voters can help him do so by saying No to Doctor No. It’s time, past time, for a change. Vote for Charles Booker for United States Senator.
