The Freak-Out Bunker

This made me laugh:
For Rand (and Ron) Paul, the dread specter of fiscal collapse and hyperinflation is more of a generalized fact of life than something that depends on particular "numbers." The whole political rise of the Pauls since 2008 owes a great deal to the economic crisis and the resulting spike in the deficit, which drove large numbers of people to join the freak-out bunker where the Pauls have resided all along. Of course Rand Paul isn't going to notice the apocalypse is receding — its imminent appearance is a fixed piece of his worldview.
 I have to say....the fact that there are many Republicans flirting with "Rand Paul For President" ideas should tell you all you need to know about Rand Paul and the GOP.
