We all love to look at the Clinton Foundation’s donors. Even Rand Paul says that foreign donations are thinly-veiled bribes to the Clintons.

So why don’t we look at the donations going to Ron Paul, which he is hiding from public scrutiny? Given that the elder Paul has been defending Russia, don’t we have to question just why this is, and just how much money is flowing from Russia to the Paul family to promote these positions?

If the Clinton foundation’s donors were secret, and suddenly Bill Clinton started making statements defending President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s positions, we’d be hearing about that every day until the general election in conservative circles, right? Or if the Clintons got donations from who knows where, and Bill Clinton said Obama should pull US ships out of the South China Sea, wouldn’t we question the propriety of that? Wouldn’t we rightfully want to know where that money was coming from?

Well what if I told you that Ron Paul is all-in for Russia and Vladimir Putin’s aggressive expansionism? Quoth The Guardian:

“The evidence is pretty clear that the NGOs [non-governmental organisations] financed by our government have been agitating with billions of dollars, trying to get that government changed,” he said. “Our hands are not clean.”

This is pure Kremlin propaganda. One of the chief ways Vladimir Putin attacks dissident groups is to label them foreign agitators, requiring them to register as foreign groups. So for Paul to be saying that Russian opposition in Ukraine is foreign, is simply taking talking points from Russia.

And now, as [mc_name name=’Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’R000595′ ] points out, Rand Paul is voting the United Russia line on NSA, this after defending Putin himself. Why? And why won’t Ron Paul release his donor lists?

I think we all agree that Hillary Clinton is too compromised by foreign donations to be trusted to be President. Well, the Paul family’s donations are just too secret for us to know whether Rand Paul should be trusted with the nuclear codes.

It’s bad enough Edward Snowden fled to his Russian paymasters. Can we afford a President who thinks the turncoat to Russia deserves a slap on the wrist?

But don’t worry. I’m sure the comments section here will be full of NumbersUSA talking points, straight from the pro-abort, pro-Agenda-21, extreme population-control left, talking about how much Marco Rubio is part of a vast Chamber of Commerce conspiracy, even though Rubio has refused to change his views to suit the Chamber.
