Rand Paul Strip-Mines Libertarianism
While we’re on the subject of Raping the Earth…
INTERVIEWER: What about mountaintop removal?
PAUL: I think whoever owns the property can do with the property as they wish, and if the coal company buys it from a private property owner and they want to do it, fine. The other thing I think is that I think coal gets a bad name, because I think a lot of the land apparently is quite desirable once it’s been flattened out. As I came over here from Harlan, you’ve got quite a few hills. I don’t think anybody’s going to be missing a hill or two here and there.
Hey, no problem. Randy’s patients aren’t going to be missing his lack of board certification, either.
