Looking through active legislation of the past week, two things catch my eye: one from Ron Paul and one from David Vitter.
I think these two pieces of proposed legislation give some valuable insight into the two sides battling for control of the Republican party today.
There is the true pro-business, pro-free market, pro-personal liberty side of the Republican Party.
And then there are the retarded fuck-brains who mindlessly chant and cheer along with the latest trendy conservative fads.
Can you guess which legislator falls into which category?
Let me give you a hint:
David Vitter just proposed that April 15 officially be called “National TEA Party Day”.
While Ron Paul wants to amend the Controlled Substances Act to “to exclude industrial hemp from the definition of marihuana”.
While I don’t always agree with Ron Paul, he’s the kind of Republican I understand and respect.
His latest proposed bill is the kind of common sense, pro-business legislation that could only be introduced by a Republican and could only become law while the Democrats control congress. It’s unbiased and seeks to overcome extremely outdated and silly 50’s-era drug paranoia that has hindered American businesses for decades.
David Vitter’s proposed bill, on the other hand, is just bunch of biased Republican bullshit that seeks to make the Democrats seem like they are trying to raise your taxes to buy liquor for lazy minorities.
Ron Paul and David Vitter both have a crazy side to them. But it’s a very different type of crazy.
Ron Paul says: I know you are going to think this is crazy, but I know it’s right and I’m going to pursue it anyway.
David Vitter says: you think that’s crazy? I’ll fucking show you crazy!
Ron Paul is an idealist.
David Vitter is an extremist.
The jury is still out which type of crazy is going to win over control of the Republican Party.
