Capitalist Paradise Regional Message Board
... Am I the only one picturing The Situation say this? XD
You guys are great entertainment.
I know Sen. Paul, I have worked with him and his staff and I can tell you you are just wrong.
As to his pro life stand it's not a political motivation it is a moral conviction.
In Dead Aid, your own cited academic expert, Dambisa Moyo, says exactly the opposite about money received from ex-patriots working abroad. She calls them "remittances" and not "transfer payments". Her reasoning is impeccable. Unlike ODA, remittances are voluntary, direct, widely distributed, and difficult to routinely divert from their intended destination. ODA, on the other hand, comprises up to 75% of some African nations' incoming capital. Moyo specifically and at length writes about alternatives to this "dead aid" and remittances are featured prominently as part of any potential solution.
This is the second time, on the same subject, that you have been shown to be factually incorrect.
I meant to write "expatriates" and not "ex-patriots", incidentally. The rest of the post is blemishless.
Paul's positions have dramatically changed since you worked with him and his staff: http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/rand-pauls-delicate-balancing-act/2015/04/05/6e38af6c-d946-11e4-8103-fa84725dbf9d_story.html
As an example, there's this: “The First Amendment says keep government out of religion. It doesn’t say keep religion out of government,” he told a group of pastors at a private breakfast on Capitol Hill on March 26.
That's pretty tough to reconcile to his prior convictions.
And this is with absolute certainty that I can conclude you have absolutely 0 competence to even debate this subject.
Remittances are transfer payments XD
*apply cold water*
Correct. This doesn't change that they are parasites... not sure what your point is here.
It is one thing to claim I am incorrect, it is another thing to actually disprove me. I have invalidated every one of your points so far.
Got to be honest with you. I do not get a warm and fuzzy feeling from Rand Paul. He and I agree on a lot of things, but he's said some really off the wall things that make be question his grasp on reality.
You should question how many Wieners he has been eating, lately. It tends to be a necessary thing to gargle on when you want to win the race.
They need all the protein they can get!
Speaking of protein, did you see the Mitt Romney fight?? Cringeworthy is the only word to describe it.

Missed it. But it is for a good cause.
