Senator Rand Paul gives David Letterman an intellectual beatdown

You want to watch a true example of what happens when statist beliefs go up against conservative logic? Take the time to watch this 11-minute clip as Kentucky Senator Rand Paul completely dismantles every lamebrained argument that David Letterman throws at him. By the end of the interview, Letterman is reduced to admitting to the audience that he is completely outmatched... but that Rand Paul is somehow wrong in his arguments anyway.

Hopefully, a few of the clapping seals in the audience went away questioning their knee-jerk statist beliefs just a little bit. Kudos to Senator Paul for taking his arguments to a place where I'm sure they are rarely, if ever, heard.

Letterman's logic: tax the fat, rich guys and give their money to the deplorable education system and then education will get better.
While I am tiring of fat, rich guys selling us a bunch of crap, the solution to bettering education does not exist in taking their money. Sounds like Letterman has a paltry education to me.
