by Susan Jones, CNS News:

In 2011, when President Obama declared that the Iraq war finally was over, Paul introduced an amendment to a defense authorization bill that would have formally ended the war by canceling congressional authorization for it.

    Rand Paul should be in gaol for TREASON, he represents Israel’s interests continually, why?! Does the USA not have enough crisis and issues to keep him busy. He and others conveniently don’t question the country that violates more UN resolutions than any other country, a country that John Kerry even labelled as “apartheid”

    You’re going directly to GAOL RAND! It’s only a matter of time for you and others. Rupert Murdoch and others won’t be able to save you SCUM!
