Ron Paul Started the Tea Party Movement! WHAS 11 Interviews Ron and Rand at Rally

As most of you know, we had an awesome rally in Louisville yesterday with Ron & Rand Paul! There has some been some great media coverage from it, which I believe includes a state-wide radio clip or so.

I also felt like a lot of doors opened for Ron at the rally... He said that while many might disagree with him on some issues, such as foreign policy, we agree on getting back to following the Constitution and freedom is bringing us together. The crowd included all kinds of folks, and you could see many Republicans warming up to him as the speech went on.

I wanted to post this clip from the news tonight, which was notable for pointing out that the Tea Party movement was pretty much started by Ron Paul and his supporters - a detail that is usually ignored by the media. Kudos to Joe Arnold for giving us a decent shake so far.

I'll be grabbing other coverage if I can.

thanks

for the post.

Rand would have to kick puppies at kindergarten kids for me to not support him. This is politics and though I may disagree with him on hot button issues, Ill proudly support a trustworthy candidate.

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

Big bump.

Nice interview.

"And more with their views on

"And more with their views on Guantanamo at 11" .. It seems that the moment of truth for Rand is coming very soon for the DP world.

I talked to Rand about Gitmo

last night at dinner after the rally.

He does view things a little bit differently than Ron Paul does on this issue. But he did convince me that he has his reasons for feeling the way he does.

I was disappointed when this first came up, but I hope you can believe me, that we can trust him. He will do the right things in the Senate, and he has the fortitude to stand up and try to make some changes.

I wish those of us in the Liberty community would stop being so hard on candidates for disagreement on just one issue. It's just the R's with their abortion issue.

Did he say anything about his controversial statement...

...on Afghanistan?

After saying that he supports a declaration of war on Afghanistan, many speculated that he did not actually mean that he supports war there and as far as I know there hasn't been clarification from him on that.

it didn't come up

But I can ask him to clarify. I should see him tomorrow.

Do you know what I think, though? This is his way of saying that if we are going to be at war, it needs a declaration. I don't know that it necessarily meant that he would vote yes, just that war needs a declaration.

Please remember, foreign policy is a hot issue and a hard one to navigate with Republicans. I think Rand is trying to say things in a way that they can stomach. These folks need baby steps!

The Republicans in our state voted McConnell back into office while the bailouts were still fresh wounds, and his involvement in that should have landed him out of a job. Rand is trying to navigate a political minefield here. I would hope you guys will trust him a bit and give him a break.

I'll try to keep you posted as much as I can. Sometimes, I can't say all the things I know in writing on the internet!

P.S. Watch for a big announcement tomorrow around lunchtime.

Palin?

Don't let the Establishment direct your focus.

More like they will navigate the minefield that the Establishment cooked up to divide us and keep us from winning.

Trials, whether here or there are unlikely to be impartial, and after this long, many prisoners probably hate us.

It's a divisive issue with no good answer, and this is exactly why the Establishment is making it a main issue. It's a key tactic to distract people with details of policy, instead of focusing on principles that would avoid the unhappy situations in the first place. I still think it's unfortunate that some of us have taken the bait.

Rand will be the best senator we've seen in 50 years. Together, he, his father and our movement threaten the power structure in Washington. They'll stop at nothing to prevent that from happening. Look for them to alienate either voters or national support on drugs, abortion, and marriage issues soon.

I agree with you, I believe

I agree with you, I believe he wouldn't have much of a chance in Kentucky if he were to come out saying Guantanamo is unconstitutional and we have to bring our troops home now. I was making more of a general statement on the reaction the DP will have to possible comments that may be made public tonight.
