He name his son after Ayn Rand, an absolute atheist.

Yet people are concerned he's going to shove religion down people's throats? If anything, they should be concerned about his objectivist values. Now that would be legitimate.

Now, let's see here... Apparently Rand thought racism was irrational.  Roll Eyes

The Communists say, equal labour entitles man to equal enjoyment. No, equal labour does not entitle you to it, but equal enjoyment alone entitles you to equal enjoyment. Enjoy, then you are entitled to enjoyment. But, if you have laboured and let the enjoyment be taken from you, then – ‘it serves you right.’ If you take the enjoyment, it is your right.

I love the story about how Rand Paul and another college friend kidnapping a girl, blindfolded her, tied her up, and told her to smoke pot and worship the "Aqua Buddha." 

I wish I had a college story that good ;(

Honestly, I'm glad it was Aqua Buddha, and not Jesus Christ or Mohammed. The latter two would have been a TOTALLY different story.

He name his son after Ayn Rand

You do make good points. But this statement is false.

I just wanted to add that I was told once that because Ron Paul has personal beliefs about abortion and gay marriage but wouldn't force them on everyone, he was a theocrat. Actually, the guy said he was a theocrat like Hitler. I guess I could see that. After all, Hitler did delegate evil acts to subordinate states and remained wholly uninvolved in decisions they made despite his personal beliefs. Wikipedia tells me I might be thinking of a different Hitler.

Ah, no.  His son's full name is Randal Howard Paul. 

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'

The list of his favorite books made my respect for him just considerably. Why didn't the tea party pick him instead of that other bimbo loony that doesn't read anything? Or does mentioning Dostoevsky immediately disqualify Rand for being an elitist?
