Kentucky Tea Party Republican Senate candidate Rand Paul belongs to a psuedo-science "medical association" that make the ex-gays look like the reasonable sort. The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons is one of those far-far-right whacked out groups that you expect to find waiting for a spaceship to carry them away. PR Watch reports:
AAPS' Statement of Principles maintains that it is "evil" and "immoral" to participate in Medicare and Social Security. The group argues that President Obama uses a covert form of hypnosis called "neurolinguistic programming" to control his audiences and coerce voters. AAPS denies the link between HIV and AIDS and opposes mandatory vaccinations. The group has also fought expanded health care coverage for children.
This is not the same group that Rand, an ophthalmologist, founded - the National Board of Ophthalmology, Inc. That group is a fake accreditation society meant to fool people into believing it is the real American Academy of Ophthalmology. Rand's own accreditation isn't recognized by the American Medical Association; he accredited himself. I wonder why, don't you?
