Rand Paul laughs when asked if he wanted to become a Democrat

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, a Republican, did a 11 minute interview with CNN’s State of the Union host Candy Crowley Sunday, where the two discussed the sequester, the debt ceiling and partial government shutdown.

However, one of the most peculiar lines of questioning came from Crowley at the 9:50  mark near the end of the interview.

Here is how it went down:

“Do you see yourself at any point in the future being anything other than politically a member of the Republican Party?” she asked.

Paul- chuckle

“You mean — you’re implying a third party or some other party?” he said.

“Or if you wanted to become a Democrat — there are lots of parties out there,” she said. “Just wonder if you see yourself being anything other than a Republican?”

Sen. Paul laughs somewhat harder.

“No. I’ve always been a Republican, and I’m one of those people who actually is a real lover of the history of the Republican Party from the days of abolition to the days of civil rights. The Republican Party has a really rich history,” he said.

“In our state, I’m really proud of the fact that the ones who overturned Jim Crow in Kentucky were Republicans fighting against an entirely unified Democratic Party, so I am proud to be Republican. I can’t imagine being anything else,” he added.

    Governor Gary Johnson STATED HE DID NOT CARE ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE DO IN THE BEDROOM – THAT IS WHY I VOTED FOR HIM.

    BUT, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) HAS NOT STATED A NONCHALANCE FOR SAME-GENDER LOVE – YET, HE CARRIES HIMSELF AS A LIBERTARIAN. SO, THE SENATOR NEEDS TO FIGURE-OUT HOW HE WILL “COURT OF VOTES” OF THOSE WITH MONEY, OPPOSE ABORTION AND HAVE ECCENTRIC SEX-LIVES.

    • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON says:

      I JUST WATCHED THIS VIDEO. Senator Paul SAYS REPUBLICANS ARE “WINNING THE DEBATE.” HOWEVER, REPUBLICANS ARE THE ONES WHO DECLARED THEY WOULD “PULL-OUT-ALL-THE-STOPS” TO DEFUND Obamacare – NOW, THEY HAVE DROPPED THE ISSUE LIKE, “A HOT POTATO.”

      TO UNDERSTAND BUDGETARY ISSUES IS AN INTELLECTUAL EXERCISE. THIS SITUATION HIGHLIGHTS THE GREAT DIVIDE BETWEEN THOSE WHO READ NEWSPAPERS AND WATCH NEWS PROGRAMMING AND THOSE WHO “GO-OUT” IN PUBLIC AND FIND-OUT ABOUT THINGS WHEN THEY IMPACT “T-H-E-M” [i.e., those who tried to utilize their EBT-Cards and were declined]. PEOPLE OF LOW INTELLECT UNDERSTAND, BASICALLY, THAT Obamacare IS SUPPOSED TO PROVIDE HEALTH CARE FOR EVERYONE.

      BUT, SINCE REPUBLICANS HAVE DONE THIS “180,” THEY HAVE HURT THEMSELVES IN WAYS WHICH “OUT-DO” ANY HARM CAUSED BY Tea Party.

      WHEN YOU “MESS WITH” POOR FOLKS’ MONEY, DEMOCRATS WIN.
