No we need more moderates, and FYI Rand is a moderate, he only votes 84% of the time with his party, which is pretty bipartisan comparatively because everyone is so stiff and "Principled" that nothing gets done.

Rand Paul is "Republican" by party affiliation. He is Libertarian by principle. The fact he isn't lock-step voting Party line demonstrates principal over Party & voting according to constituents over Party-pressure. Does not indicate "bipartisan."

elianastar Gab.ai FreeSpeech

Skinner: yes you can prove it. At 5 weeks, the child has a heartbeat. When a person loses their heartbeat they're pronounced dead. If a heartbeat identifies a "live person", then at 5 weeks, women have an actual live person(s) inside of them.
