Laughing at the Ron Paul Rabble?

In his speech at the 2007 Boston Tea Party, Rand Paul said that in the first American Revolution,

The British scoffed at the American rabble. They laughed at the imperfect uniforms and tactics of the American soldiers. They laughed at retreat after retreat of the American army. They laughed right up until Yorktown...

Today, we are that American rabble. The disgruntled, the disillusioned, the cynical, the bereaved. Bereaved at the loss of Liberty. The Establishment, in their high rise, penthouse views, laughs at you. They laugh at us. The Ron Paul rabble.

Sending Rand Paul to the Senate this November will stop their laughter. We are all sons and daughters of the Ron Paul Revolution. We now have a chance to send one of our own to the Senate. We are closer than ever to a meaningful victory.

Here is the second half of that speech:


Nothing has changed since 2007 when Rand Paul uttered those words. The only difference is that the president he speaks of at 1:25 was Bush. The issues are the same. Rand is the same. He quotes his father at 4:30:

We must remember that achieving power is never the goal in a free society. Dissipation of power is the objective of those who truly love Liberty.

The objective remains the same.

With today's money bomb, let's send a message to the Establishment that we will not be ignored. That we are not just a motley band of disorganized protesters. The Ron Paul rabble is the Ron Paul Revolution! The Revolution rolls on!

Rand Paul 2010! Ron Paul 2012!

They Were Laaughing in German! "The Awful German Language"

"The Awful German Language" By Mark Twain

What Hessian Mercenary Fighters were laughing about was hard for our founding fathers to know. Few Americans spoke German.

"The Awful German Language." Oh, the pitfalls one will encounter when trying to wrap one’s mind around the torturous German cases, adjective endings, noun genders, and verb placement.

Read or listen for free @ LibriVox.org:

American & England, Separated by a Common Language

‘It is a misfortune for Anglo-American friendship that the two countries are supposed to have a common language.’ Bertrand Russell (Saturday Evening Post, 3 June 1944).

Lack of Subordination to the Royal Crown

George, King of England had trouble mustering Englishmen to suppress or harm the Americans during their Revolution. He cast about seeking a professional army to attend to the messy task of getting the Americans to use English "Coin of the Realm..." debt "legal tender" and submit taxes to the Royal Crown.

Hessian Army, the Best that Money Could Buy, Circa 1776

In Southern Germany, the professional Hessian Army was available for hire. A contract was signed and the War of Suppression commenced. Let it begin in Boston!

Hessians: The Best Armies Money Could Buy. Page 4.

When mobilized, the Hessian army was an infantry force: around two dozen regiments of foot, field and garrison, supported by a few squadrons of cavalry and two or three artillery companies whose pieces were distributed as "regimental guns." Each infantry regiment had a grenadier company, composed of picked men and usually assigned to a separate grenadier battalion on active service. For the American expedition, the army added something new: a field Jaeger (hunter) corps of two companies. Foresters, hunters and the occasional poacher from all over Germany volunteered, attracted by high bounties and high pay, bringing their own rifles. Performing many of the duties of contemporary rangers, the Jaeger were widely considered the elite of the British army in North America.


Boston Is Attacked First!

The fighting started in Boston, as they were the most Independent since the 1600s. Read about how the Pilgrims came to American to rid themselves of European and English debt money. Throw in religion so everyone could find something worth fighting about.

British Ministry: Very Poor Vision and Eyesight

Those are among the reasons John Adams inspired Tomas Jefferson to write the Declaration of Independence. Jefferson did a beautiful job scripting it. Even Ben Franklin thought so... editing very lightly.

John Hancock was president of the Continental Congress convened in 1775. Hancock was the first to sign the Declaration of Independence, July 1776. He wrote his name at the center of the page in extra-large script. Referring to a bounty the British had put on the heads of revolutionaries, he remarked, "The British Ministry can read that name without spectacles; let them double their reward." Hence, "John Hancock" came to mean your signature you meant. Here is a page on John Hancock:


[Humanity] has unquestionably one really effective weapon? Laughter. Power, money, persuasion, supplication, persecution?these can lift at a colossal humbug? Push it a little? Weaken it a little, century by century; but only laughter can blow it to rags and atoms at a blast. Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand.

Wishing you the best that history can afford,

Thanks Mike. I'll be using this quote from Rand;

“We must remember that achieving power is never the goal in a free society. Dissipation of power is the objective of those who truly love Liberty.”
– Rand Paul

This statement is descriptive of how the mycelium mushroom network system dispenses nutrients (power) from many "hot spots" (grass roots movements)and not a top down drip system of central government.

The intuitiveness of nature.

The following is an excerpt from Paul Staments;
6 Ways Mushrooms Can Save The World
"I first proposed, in the early 1990s, that mycelium is Earth's natural internet. When you look at the mycelium, they're highly branched. And if there's one branch that is broken, then very quickly, because of the nodes of crossing -- internet engineers maybe call them "hot points" -- There's alternative pathways for channeling nutrients and information. The mycelium is sentient. It knows that you are there. When you walk across landscapes, it leaps up in the aftermath of your footsteps trying to grab debris."
(my note: debris is liberty and freedom leaping up at us as we walk the walk)

The objective remains the same.
Liberty and freedom is natural;
We just have to tap into it and feed it.
Let's get Rand into office.

Growth begins at the tribal level and up from there.
Favor the candidate that "intuitive to most humans, the earth is a living breathing entity".

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

Fascinating video. I'm watching it now.

And just to correct the quote - yes Rand says it in the speech, but he's quoting his father Ron.

To be mean is never excusable, but there is some merit in knowing that one is; the most irreparable of vices is to do evil out of stupidity. - C.B.

You guys make my point for me so loud and clear

Glad to see so many working so hard in the "Freedom Movement" in an effort to reclaim the liberty of such basic God given rights as free speech are so quick to ridicule and denounce anyone who doesn't agree with them. So let's see, where have I seen that kind of socially irresponsible behaviour before? Oh right, the current establishement. As I said before, and as Ron Paul has even said before: replacing one regime with another solves nothing.

I guarantee anyone who claims to be "working" here towards liberty that none of you have even come close to actually doing anything that matters such as I have.
I have claimed between 15 and 25 on my W-4 for the last two years. Effectively putting myself on the IRS radar so I can loudly and clearly tell them to kiss my ass. I am currently on a payment plan of about $100 month just for last year's taxes alone. Hell I didn't even bother filing my state taxes. If even a fraction of you self-proclaimed "hard workers" had the balls to do the same thing we could shut the gov down from lack of funds.

I have received numerous frivolous traffic citation over the last couple years, none of which have I ever agreed to pay even with threat of contempt of court hanging over my head.

You jump just as quickly to judge me as you do Rand Paul and in the process make my point.

We don't need a bunch of selfish, judgemental, hot-heads in congress. We've already got that. We need people of character, principle, courage and intellect. People who think before they speak and act. If you guys are a cross section of what awaits us with the "Rand Paul" revolution then I fear the republic is lost.

Traffic tickets for Liberty!

Paying the IRS $100 per month doesn't sound like telling them to kiss your ass. It sounds like you're kissing theirs.

Anyway, to each his own. I don't know why you have to come here to trash Rand, on his money bomb day.

I don't see how that is productive.

In my opinion your behavior is exactly the kind that makes people look skeptically upon the Libertarians and call them kooks.

Who's the hot head? Lighten up man. You bring it upon yourself, and then you complain when it comes down on you.

Rand Paul histeria

Anyone who knows me from my columns on LRC knows that I am the first and foremost advocate of changing the status quo but Rand Paul is not Ron Paul. He has only recently appeared on the scene and already people are writing things like: "sending Rand Paul to the senate this November will stop their laughter". WTF? That's qualification by association with his father who has over 30 years of principled, consistent dedication in the senate.

A lot of these people who are fighting for "liberty" are starting to sound a lot like the people they're fighting against: all that matters is that our people win, whether they are qualified or not.

Just made my investment in the future of Liberty in our country:

What is wrong with you?

What is wrong with you? Anyone with an ounce of sense would understand that your comment is in the poorest of bad taste. You picked this one day of all days, on this particular thread, to do all you can to add your particular brand of pessimism to our hard work.

If you truly respected Ron Paul as you say, you would have postponed this kind of attack at least until the day after Ron Paul's birthday.


"Lead, follow, or get out of the way." -- Thomas Paine.


Why is any opposing opinion an attack? And what does Rand Paul have to do with Ron Paul? They are two very, very different people you know. You do know that right?
You seem as polarizing as the status quo political establishment. This is exactly what we DON'T need more of.

You missed my point Don. I

You missed my point Don. I said it was in bad taste to come here today of all days and attack Rand on his money bomb day on this money bomb thread. I'm sorry if I didn't write that clearly enough. Maybe I could have done better.

Keyboard jockey

Do you think your howls & bloviations on the internet will really change anything?

I applaud Rand for making this trek, in the footsteps of his father, into the belly of the beast we all want to slay.

Sounds like sour grapes to me.

Don, you covert back stabber.

Don, you covert back stabber. Now that you have displayed your true colors, do you still think LRC will let you contribute your snide remarks to their web-site?

The first speech I saw Rand deliver was the victory speech over Tray Grayson, and I thought this guy has "it", after Ron we have our candidate for President. I haven't change my mind.

So shut up Don and get out your wallet, this is the day for the Rand Paul "Money Bomb".

What does it take to be "qualified" for the US Senate?

Do you have to be a lawyer first? A lobbyist first? Tell me - what does it take?

Who is qualified from our movement to be a US Senator?

Was Ron Paul "qualified" when he was elected Congress?

The question at hand is: Will Rand challenge the status quo?

I've never heard of you before, but I looked up your archive.

In one article you state:

After spending nearly a decade abroad living and working in Europe I found myself returning to a country I didn’t recognize. I found it difficult to acclimate and integrate into this politically correct, socially abusive, statist society; a society that seemed to be desensitized to police abuse of all magnitudes.


So, what are you going to do about it? Complain on the internet? Tear down people who actually have a chance to make a meaningful change? Write columns on the non-existent www.Qaoss.com ?

Are you 'qualified' to make your judgment by your association to LRC? I'm interested to hear more about "qualifications."

Certainly I want Rand to win, and I've kicked in some money. But it's the same as wanting Jim DeMint to win. Not quite a "lesser of two evils," Rand is better than that. But no, he's definitely NOT his father. I'm not sure Rand would ever publicly take the position, or even understand (as his father does), that perpetual war is not only costly but also a vehicle to help foster the burgeoning collectivist state. And forget about him ever calling the folks behind the Federal Reserve "sinister."

Not a revolutionary by any means, but might not stab us in the back, which is a cause for hope. And he'll probably vote the right way most of the time. I wouldn't count on him to "lead," however. That will have to come from other voices outside of mainstream politics. His father is one of a kind, and we won't see his like again.

Rand Paul all the way to the US Senate!

He is not afraid.

Who cares if they are

Who cares if they are laughing or not? The only we are going to fix the problem is by abolishing the Federal Reserve. The only way that is going to happen is if Ron Paul is elected Presidnet. When that happens we flood the Fed with phone calls telling them that if any hanky panky happens to Ron Paul, they will be held accountable.

We need to win this race.

The liberty movement needs a victory. Rand is not the perfect candidate, but he represents ideas that are near perfect: limited government, balanced budgets and individual liberty.

If Ron Paul is to have any hope of being elected POTUS, we need Rand Paul in the Senate. The goal is attainable if we all chip in. There will not be a third Ron Paul run for the White House. Let's make the second one a reality and a success.

Support Rand Paul for Senate however you can.

Debbie's picture

So well said Michael!! I think the establishment is

afraid of having two Ron Paul's in Washington, for that is what this is tantamount to - a big consolidation of the Ron Paul Revolution, that prairie fire that has swept across the fruited plain since 2007 with no signs of stopping - something they did not see coming and that got away from them.


Rand != Ron

Debbie, I couldn't disagree more. Rand Paul supports the current foreign policy for one thing where Ron does not. You're jumping to conclusions about this candidate simply b/c he is Ron Paul's son. That is exactly the sort of strategy the establishment uses: family dynasties. If the name is Kennedy then get'em in here! Replacing one establishment with another does no one any good.

We need to be smarter than that, smarter than them lest we risk making the same mistakes. No doubt you believe that your position is more righteous than the establishment's, it's not and our humility should keep us grounded in that regard.

But, Don, without the Fed,

But, Don, without the Fed, which Rand is completely against, the foreign policy does not matter. I agree with you that there are things about Rand's foreign policy views which are not to either of our likings. But, at this juncture, Rand Paul's run for the senate is symbolic of the strength of the movement bearing his father's name. With all of the divisive tactics being used to destroy both men and us, it is important at this time to make the symbolism stick. In politics, symbolism has power.

If Rand loses the momentum will disperse, his father will not run in 2012 and many of the strides we've made will be retraced ala Goldwater in the 60's.

We don't have the luxury of time waiting for a 2nd perfect candidate to arise. Support Rand and hold him accountable to the things we don't like, but don't for a second believe that he's fallen that far from his father's tree so as to be completely unworthy of our support.

By doing so, you are playing their game for them.
