The key word he said when talking about the Fed

did you hear it? The first step, I love the ambiguity of that statement, it was genius, pure genius. Rand is going to be one of the most important politicians this country has ever had, and we need him desperately. Senators are going to be asking him for advice first day on how to stay in office.

The R3volution requires action, not observation!!!!

ye u can't really expect the son of ron paul

in addition being an activist since the age of 17 to not understand the issues.. i knew during this race due to political necessity that he had been playing politics, but that his core beliefs had not changed.. some dp'ers simply have a distaste for wisdom in politics and word games, even when they are used to serve the cause.

and i agree 100% with not giving a yes or no when either answer given will not be given sufficient remaining time to elaborate and explain and then get taken out of context.. what's the point. some seem to think a feel-good, sound-bite-sucker type of politicking is the only "good" politicking, just because someone in the background yelled "man up and give a yes or no!" to those people i just say.. perhaps you think too hard. go lie down.

Since the Federal Reserve's

Since the Federal Reserve's biggest power is their influence over interest rates, by stating that he thinks the Fed shouldn't be involved in that process answers in the affirmative that the Fed should be, in effect, abolished without actually saying so.

This gives him the appearance of a rational agent for change without looking like a wild-eyed radical on the eve of an election. Very astute campaigning tactic, actually.

He dodged Kudlow's murky question about corporate subsidies, but it's hard to believe that he'd be in favor of keeping farm subsidies around. He'll win today in a laugh.

This is my favorite Rand

This is my favorite Rand interview yet... You can tell that he has a lot of sound Austrian economic knowledge under his curly hair.

At 4:45 on...

Nice job..... Senator.

Nice job..... Senator.

10-15 million more voters need to believe in non-interventionism (liberty) at home and abroad to change America. Minds changed on Syria. Minds changing on privacy. "Printing money" is part of the dialogue. Win minds through focus, strategy.

:)

I cant wait to hear that victory speech tomorrow. He is going to be an awesome Senator.

Very good interview. I'm

Very good interview. I'm glad to see him discussing the FED again and speaking like the Austrian we all know he is.

Cuimhnigh orm, a Dhia, le haghaidh maith.

He knows that the Fed is the

He knows that the Fed is the source of the power-train in Washington. All of the other nonsense grows out of their power to control the value and amount of money available to the banks to lend.

If he can stabilize and grow the anti-Fed sentiment at the Senate level it will dwarf any other mistakes he makes on other issues. In this case, cutting off the head will truly kill the beast.
