Sometimes Rand Paul drives me nuts.....but there is no doubt he's a great human being.

    The senator recovers from CV-19 and goes on vacation...........actually not instead of hiding out in a safe house somewhere he's volunteering his very considerable medial skills to his fellow Americans.

    *For years RP has done pro bono eye surgeries during downtime.

    That's bad-azzed stuff right there.

    I saw that earlier- awesome! Good on him

    Dems will find some angle to take shots at him though, guaranteed.

    I am proud to have rand Paul as one of my senators. His speech during the impeachment proceedings about the left's police state tactics should be required listening for everyone in this country.

    Not at all! I think PI gets tons of views. It’s just that many won’t post here in reply, because of the vocal riff-raff here. The bastages!!

    OK that's good enough for me. For years I hung around this sub-forum and it became intolerable. I'll give it another shot.

    I do think it's amazing that Paul gets better and immediately goes to work.

    We've all had friend like him. They're good guys. But they are definitely wired differently than the rest of us.

    Did he sue for the beat down he got from his neighbor? That was a strange deal. It made the news but then just disappeared.

    I was impressed when I read that story, good man.

    Too few good people in Congress these days (or ... ever)

    He’s one of the VERY few members of Congress who is worth the air they breathe.

    Great Statesman and apparently a genuinely good person.
