Once again, libertarian-leaning Senator Rand Paul ran is annual Festivus tweet fest by airing his grievances about big government.
From foreign policy to the shut-down (he approves) to farm subsidies, Senator Paul left nothing in his tweet wake. In one of his tweets, Paul wrote, "One of the things I hate most about Washington is that they have literally NO IDEA how to spend your money. That’s why I do waste reports, and do a Festivus Waste Report with some of the worst offenders of the year. Here are some of the worst in waste."
Below is a sampling of Rand Paul's Festivus tweets. Read his entire Festivus report about government waste on his website.
I’m going to start out with a grievance against the entire foreign policy establishment of Washington DC, who 2 years ago were swearing that Donald Trump was going to start multiple nuclear wars or something.— Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) December 23, 2018
Now they are mad because he is STOPPING two wars. How about you just admit you hate the President, love war and have been wrong for the last 20 years on every part of foreign policy?— Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) December 23, 2018
Consider that my Christmas present. You don’t have to get me anything else.
So of course, instead of fixing waste like this and reforming government, the geniuses in Congress decided to have a fight over how much MORE money they were going to “spend” aka borrow from China.— Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) December 23, 2018
Speaking of which, buried in the foreign aid reports last year, I discovered something — we give foreign aid to China. So government is so dumb, it is literally borrowing money from China, to give it back to China, while paying interest on it.— Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) December 23, 2018
I did something to help the President out though. I found him a wall I think will work on the border. pic.twitter.com/gx7ejwn1RU— Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) December 23, 2018
My friend Lindsay Graham is a bit mad right now. You see, he’s never seen a war end before. He’s going to have to console himself with the fact that we still are in about 8 more. I know it will be hard for him, but I think he’ll get by.— Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) December 23, 2018
Many of these people hold these two views: 1 - that it was horrible to leave the war in Syria and 2 - that it is horrible that General Mattis left, since he was what kept the President from starting WWIII or something. I don’t understand how you hold both of those views.— Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) December 23, 2018
Well, actually…let’s talk about John Bolton. I don’t have a grievance. I just really would have liked to have been in the room when the POTUS told him to END a war. How many times do you think he made the President repeat it because he didn’t even know what the words meant?— Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) December 23, 2018
