Rand Paul's profile in Details contains this gem:
"The bottom line is I'm not an expert, so don't give me the power in Washington to be making rules. You live here, and you have to work in the mines. You'd try to make good rules to protect your people here. If you don't, I'm thinking that no one will apply for those jobs." [emphasis added]
Does Paul believe that, especially in an era of high structural unemployment (a prime example of Marx's "reserve army of the unemployed"), workers have the ability to just wait until a better job offer comes along? That the roof over their family's head, the food on their table, and the clothes on their back will pay for themselves in the meantime? That powerful corporations (sitting on trillions of dollars) will suddenly become more responsible if, instead, they can make higher profits via cost-cutting and exploitation?
Such blindly libertarian dogma, so stupendously ignorant of reality, makes one almost hope that Paul is given a wider stage on which to expound his views--the results could well taint such plutocratic elitism for years to come.
