I haven't been party to this argument. But reading that:

To say "Reagan said this..." WRT to this quote/non-quote, as a paraphrase, it would seem like a very clear case of torturing the context so as to distort meaning.

To have read the quote in-line as if it had been lifted straight from the text is something I don't think you can describe as anything other than deceptive.

Maybe someone else writes his speeches, maybe this quote was just taking from a dubious online source - who knows. It disappoints me because I do like Rep. Paul. Has he ever made a public statement or retraction about this?

Congrats on what seems like a well-researched and worthy coup de grace here.
