RationalWiki's 2018 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff — we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Let's dispel the fiction that Barack Obama doesn't know what he's doing. He knows exactly what he's doing. Barack Obama is undertaking a systematic effort to change this country.
—The first of four separate times this stamement would be spoken by Rubio at the February 5 GOP debate.

Marco Antonio Rubio (born May 28, 1971) is the current junior senator from Florida, and a member of the Republican Party. He is also a lawyer.

Before becoming a senator, Rubio served in the Florida House of Representatives, eventually becoming Speaker of the House.

He was elected to the United States Senate in 2010, and is currently one of the only four Latino Americans serving in the Senate, alongside fellow Cuban-American Canadian-American Ted Cruz, Bob Menendez, and Catherine Cortez Masto.

In April 2015, Rubio announced that he would be running for President of the United States, though would end up suspending his campaign after Donald Trump won Rubio's home state of Florida in the primaries. Initially stating that he would not seek reelection in the Senate, he changed his mind and was reelected in the 2016 general election.
