small government my ass

North Dakota banned all abortions by defining life at conception. So much for GOP reinventing itself.

Rachel Maddow covered the "party that so often does not seem know what their policy positions are let alone actually believe in them." In other words, she reported, again, on their incessant hypocrisy:

Rachel Maddow:

Rand Paul wants to be seen as small government guy, but he also wants a government big enough to monitor every single pregnancy in the country, to force all American women into the government's chosen outcome for their pregnancy. You do not get to decide about your pregnancy, the government gets to decide.

Rand Paul has introduced so-called personhood legislation that would ban all abortions in America, federally. It would also likely ban some forms of hormonal birth control, like the pill, and even in vitro fertilization. So again, under his bill, you would have no choice, no exceptions, you get no say, it's the government that decides, Rand Paul will decide for you.

    The GOP as a whole has demonstrated time and time again that while they might call themselves pro-life, they are anything but. Their ACTIONS speak much louder than their words.

    “Small government guy” Rand Paul “wants government big enough to monitor every single pregnancy in the country.”

    But somehow, I'll bet he doesn't want a gov't big enough to see that all those children are fed and educated properly . . .
