    This is such a dirty political trick. Normally, it's the Right that attacks peoples' faith, but this time it's the Democratic candidate. I've had people on this board attack my faith. I don't like it when either side does it.

    Rand Paul has dispatched his wife, a Presbyterian Church(USA) deacon, to counter religious bigotry charges.:thumbs:

    It is not dirty politics if it is true. I am not saying it is or it is not. Here is the question. Are those things true? Is Mr. Paul refuting those claims?

    I'm with you on this, what is he refuting and what if any isn't he refuting. I don't live in Ky. so except for my wife's family who live there, it isn't much to me. I know the conservatives in the family are not happy with Mr. Paul any more than I am with his daddy.

    One thing that is clearly deceptive in that ad is the wording that he wants to end deductions for religious charities. That implies Paul is singling out religious charities, when in fact the truth is he is for eliminating all deductions and instead us the "fair tax" or consumption tax instead of income tax. His position on that issue has nothing to do with religion as the ad suggests it does.

    It seems that the left has come up with a new tactic - attack their opponents as not being true Christians in an attempt to seperate them from Christian voters.

    I have contributed to Rand Paul's primary campaign and also to his general election campaign and I would vote for him if I lived in Kentucky. If he wins on November 2nd I will consider him to be my U.S. Senator for practical purposes since he will be the senator closest to my views.

    The Dems right now are in full panic. The DCCC is running an ad against the TN 4th GOP challenger Dr. Scott Desjarlais which makes him sound like a wife-beating, gun-toting lunatic. The most liberal paper in the state, the Chattanooga Times Free Press has even denounced it. A gerry-mandered district tailor made for Dems is deeply in trouble. So I'm not surprised Paul is under assault. That said, he has given the other side way too much ammo to use. We'll see if it all works.

    I guess you didn't understand my point at all.

    There is nothing to refute; he is in favor of eliminating all deductions, because he is in favor of the government using a consumption tax instead of the current system.

    So my point was the ad is deceptive by implying to the listener that Paul has singled out religious deductions when he has not done so. The ad implies a motive where there isn't one.

    I think it has more to do with the fact that more Americans than ever before are figuring out it isn't about the left vs the right or democrats vs republicans it's about the establishment that controls both parties and political ideologies to further their globalist agenda. That and Rand Paul doesn't really have all that many skeletons in his closet that can be used against him, if he has any.

    This upstart Rand Paul and the idea of constitutional government has the ruling elite's panties in a bunch and threatens their hold on power. What to do, what to do?

    It's pure desperation we see. And from the looks of it (by this race) it's backfiring on them.

    Politics is ugly, but this is beyond contemptuous.
