“Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded—here and there, now and then—are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty. This is known as "bad luck."”     Robert A.

Rand Paul At CPAC

Of course it probably wasn’t a good idea to follow up a speech by Rand Paul, with the crowd he drew, with the presentation of the “Defender of the Constitution Award” to Donald Rumsfeld, with a special appearance by Dick Cheney.
