I like a lot of what Rand Paul has to say; I’m on board with limited Constitutional government, auditing the Fed, thoughtful deregulation, and major tax reform.  When it comes to foreign policy and America’s place in the world, however, I can’t think of another Republican with whom I disagree more. ...
