From Daniel McAdams:
Today the US Senate voted unanimously in favor of a Lindsey Graham resolution, S.Res.65, which "[s]trongly support(s) the full implementation of United States and international sanctions on Iran and urg[es] the President to continue to strengthen enforcement of sanctions legislation."
Iran has not invaded another country. Based on credible reports, Iran has violated no treaty. Iran most certainly does not pose a threat to any of the 50 states of the United States.
I will keep this brief:
1) The clearest line delineating libertarian non-aggression is seen in the view on war.
2) It was unanimous, Rand Paul included.
Rand Paul is not a libertarian – no news here, he says so himself.
This vote isn’t simple window dressing. McAdams points out the meaning of this vote, very simply: “This is an important vote.” He suggests that every Senator that voted “Yea” will have little choice but to support US military involvement if / when that time comes.
It is safe to say that Rand Paul is not only not libertarian, he is in favor of big government. There is no more intrusive government program than war, and this unanimous statement is most certainly supportive of war.
