Matthews: Rand Paul Is America’s ‘No. 1 Whistleblower’
“Let me finish tonight with this. I’d like to salute the country’s number-one Republican whistle-blower — Rand Paul. You see, you don’t have to agree with libertarianism to see the guts that it takes. It means smashing through all the obligations the right or the left applies to government and saying, ‘Guess what? I’d rather not. I’d rather have no government than what you’re offering here.’ And so, it’s not surprising that the country’s lone libertarian presidential candidate is the one Republican with the courage to call out his party for the disastrous route this government has taken since the weeks after 9/11, when Dick Cheney and the neo-cons found a route to Iraq, a route through the drafty mind of a president, a complicit mainstream media and a public dog-trained to believe whatever a president says about national security."
