Rand Paul attempts to sound… Presidential

… which is really becoming another word for “idiotic.”

Via Hit and Run

Paul said he believes in freedom and wants a “virtuous society” where people practice “self-restraint.” Yet he believes in laws and limits as well. Instead of advocating for legalized drugs, for example, he pushes for reduced penalties for many drug offenses.

“I’m not advocating everyone go out and run around with no clothes on and smoke pot,” [Rand] said. “I’m not a libertarian. I’m a libertarian Republican. I’m a constitutional conservative.”

“He made it very clear that he does not support legalization of drugs like marijuana and that he supports traditional marriage,” [said Brad Sherman of the Solid Rock Christian Church in Coralville, Iowa].

You don’t have to advocate it. You just have to stop arresting people for it. (And there are times and places where running around with no clothes on and smoking pot is a perfectly acceptable thing.)
