‘Most Democrats Voted for a Wall Before’: Rand Paul Exposes Two-Party Scam
‘Most Democrats Voted for a Wall Before’: Rand Paul Exposes Two-Party Scam by Matt Agorist – The Free Thought Project
Countering the narrative of mainstream media and the current divide over Donald Trump’s desire to build a border wall, Rand Paul weighted in to point out just how much theater is involved in this circus sideshow we call government.
During an interview with WBKO on Sunday, Paul discussed the issue of the wall with reporters and urged the left and the right to reach a compromise as not to shut down the government again.
“I think there’s a compromise to be had,” Sen. Paul said. “I think whether you’re a Democrat or a Republican, most people don’t want open borders. We want some kind of controlled access.”
Paul didn’t say whether or not he was for the wall, he did, however, urge Republicans and Democrats to come together and get over this issue.
“I think the democrats should compromise and say ‘we’re not giving you all the money you’re asking for but we’ll give you some of the money’ – that’s sort of a compromise.”
Paul then went on to expose the ridiculous political theater of the democrats calling Trump’s wall ‘immoral’ as they have once voted for the same thing.
“We’ve heard Nancy Peolsi say, ‘oh the wall is immoral.’ Well, most of these democrats have voted for this wall before, so it didn’t used to be immoral,” Sen. Paul said.

Technically, it wasn’t a wall, but a fence. But outside of semantics, what Paul said is entirely true. In 2006, Democrats lined up to pass legislation building a physical barrier along the US border with Mexico.
Funny how it wasn’t so “immoral” back then.
Then-senators Obama, Clinton, Schumer and 23 other Democrats voted in favor of the act when it passed in the Senate by a vote of 80 to 19.
The Secure Fence Act of 2006 was signed into law by George W. Bush on October 26, 2006. It received bipartisan support.
The bill read as follows and authorized a physical barrier as well as a slew of police state measures and technologies to patrol the border:
