Rand Paul is really an amazing speaker!

Rand Paul is really an amazing speaker!


"Ron Paul Is The Most Honest Man In Congress." ~John McCain, 1980

Here's our Winner

No question; Ron Paul is a Statesman. He's an honorable man and perhaps the only (until now) "teller of Truth" in Washington. Our nation has been blessed by his presence.

But Ron is too old for this fight. This fight will be ugly and a man of his stature shouldn't be dragged through such mire.

Rand Paul is the future. He's the "Ron Paul" we've been looking for.

I agree. Rand is the future.

I agree.

Rand is the future. He's an inspirational speaker who communicates his beliefs clearly. The only problem is that Rand will not run in 2012.

We need a Paul/Paul ticket

for President and Vice-President!


Swell Speechifyin'!

A li'l valentine to the "Rand's Gonna Stab Ron In The Back" crowd.

Senator Dr. Rand Paul

He's done so well. Thank God for the Legacy Ron Paul has left behind and THANK YOU GOD THAT HE and HIS WIFE produced children.


I will admit I have been very skeptical of Rand. That skepticism was healthy and I do not apologize. Blind faith in anyone is wrong. (unless of course it's Ron Paul. He's earned my blind faith! lol))
I also held hope that Rand was playing a bit to stop an all out assault by the establishment to derail his run for senate.
Watching this speech, I see the Rand I had hoped for.
Great job Rand. Keep it up.

Dear Michael, I think you

Dear Michael,

I think you should add an S to the Daily Paul and make it the Daily Pauls!

Rand is here!!!

To all those who doubted the man, you should learn to judge people and situations better!

Demonstrations like this...

Really Body Slam all other contenders for Presidential office.

LOL- That is hilarious and sad at the same time.


I am E star...

I am Energy efficient...but the fed wants to tax my strength.
Rather than approve it.

I am one of many created and highly advanced yet simple machines in the Country.

I am American.

RP- 2012 Either one, the only choice for freedom of choice.


Would'nt that be somthing...if

Both RP's ran for President and both agreed to be vice of the winner...


I used to worry...

that this election is our last hope with Ron Paul. It's nice to know we can have another 30 years of a Paul to hopefully get things straightened out (after the bankruptcy, perhaps).

If Ron doesn't run this time, is it too early for Rand?

If the people pack Congress, we can limit the President

Our Senators can control judicial appointments, money for wars, repeal unconstitutional departments

If we can take the House in 2012, we control the budget.

Then take the Senate by 2014.

President or bust seems like a single point of failure. The whole process was designed by the founding fathers to resist democratic manipulations.

The House is the People's house. It was designed to be in our control. We just need 218 out of 435. Less risky than going "all in" on the Presidential Race.

If States took the original option for legislative selection of Senators that would almost completely eliminate the Internationalist control of the Senate races. It will no longer be simply about brainwashing sheeple. State legislatures will protect their turf and might even demand their Rights.

I know I would like Ron Paul to become President and fix everything. I'll can work hard for 6 months and get him elected.

He can work for 2 years while a Congressman to get a job that lasts 4 years. That sounds fair enough.

Free includes debt-free!


Nice speech. Rand gets better and better.

If Ron should decide not to run for 2012,

can we wish for Rand / Gary J???

Ron will ALWAYS be the Godfather, mentor, prophet and the spokesman of our Liberty Movement. Is it too soon to contemplate about it?


well, it may be ok to contemplate it, but perhaps not speak of contemplating it... if you know what I mean.

And I may have thought similar things, but you won't catch me admitting it here. ;-)

IF (and I do mean IF) I were to contemplate such things it would not be because of any lack of confindence in Ron, but perhaps an amazing level of confidence in Rand.

Rand has been a wonderful surprise! Even with my high expectations, he is doing wonderfully. I dare say that Rand is a better speaker than his father,... and that is saying A LOT!

oh, boy... watch our vote totals hit the red numbers now;-)

....where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is LIBERTY. 2 Corinthians 3:17(b)

***wants are unlimited, means are scarce...***

fantastic speech

So glad to see a confident, well spoken Rand Paul delivering speeches like this. He is falling into his natural place as a senate leader very nicely. Well done Rand, you make me proud to have supported you all this time.

That was awesome

Nice crowd!!!!!

Rand is getting bolder and better

with each speech. I'm impressed!

Viva La Revolucion!


impressive speech!!

Ron Paul 2012...and beyond

I agree... especially

compared to some of the others.


Wow, Rand Paul is the real

Wow, Rand Paul is the real deal. I reserved judgment based on some of the things he did/said during his run at the Senate. Now that he's there, I'm duly impressed.

Go get 'em, Rand!

"The casualty of partisanship is objectivity."

"Let's choose bold leadership for 2012"

Hopefully, he was setting the stage for his dad.

BTW, that was the correct time to yell "Ron Paul".


You think he's doing it for himself?


In Rand's speech he said "there is someone who can make a difference" and some awesome RP supporter immediately yelled "RON PAUL!" It was excellent.

Heard that great comment also jt,...

and I welcome you here to the Daily Paul.

Return often, for there is a lot happening out there.


I'd say I almost always have dailypaul up and I refresh it about ever hour or two. Addicted? To liberty, yes.

"Capitalism should not be condemned, since we haven't had capitalism." -Dr. Ron Paul

Yes, Yes.

He hit the neo tea-partiers hard by calling them out as big government for not wanting to cut the military.

Rand really impressed me here. He was great.

Presidential Material

This was a great speech. Full of diplomacy but definitely missing no punches. He also has a charm and good looks that the shallow people who think that is terribly important will find irresistible. Go Rand.
