Rand Paul Endorses Roy Moore in Alabama Senate Race, Annoys Libertarians

The following excerpt is from an article that originally appeared on The Economic Crisis Report

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who among other labels he’s used for himself includes “constitutional conservative,” today officially endorsed Republican Alabama Senate candidate, and former state Supreme Court judge, Roy Moore, who likes to describe himself that way as well.

“​Judge Roy Moore has spent a lifetime defending and standing up for the Constitution while fighting for the people of Alabama. We need more people in Washington, D.C. that will stand on principle and defend the Constitution​….I look forward to welcoming him to the Senate very soon,” Paul said in his endorsement statement.

Any libertarian should be appalled by Moore, for reasons detailed further below, and by Paul endorsing him.

On the one hand, “Republican senator endorses another Republican senator” isn’t huge news. But if ever there were a would-be colleague who someone of even slight libertarian tendencies should be leery of, it is Moore.
