This just makes me want the dollar crisis to hurry up and get

here. The human waste will be purged and the strong and prepared will survive. It is the only way...

"A living Constitution is a dead one" -Ron Paul

Problem is:

We (Rand and Ron often) are on the defensive:

1) We're talking about boogie man terrorists, while the real terrorists (our own gov't) are not being brought to light or talked about.

2) He's being accused of supporting the fake terrorists.

I believe the time has come to go on the offensive. Attack back, with truth.

Put them on the defensive.

As it is now, they are controlling the focus of the dialogue and we are reacting. Let's stop reacting and controlling the discussion.

Democrat now stands with Rand!

Here's a very nice post on Reddit where a democratic supporter who was invited to a fund raiser changed his mind after seeing Rand Pauls speech:


Thank you Rand for stepping

Thank you Rand for stepping it up and speaking with fire on this

What's happening in Congress is scary. Whats happening in the Executive branch is scary. What's happening in the courts is scary.

We have so much more to fear from our own federal government now than we ever did from a 'terrorist'.

Our whole Congress should be full of men like Rand Paul and his Dad.

Instead we get about 530 Harry Reids and John McCains fighting the War on Liberty.

What the hell is this???

Never let a good crisis go to waste...

...Rahm Emanuel.

I fear that if Rand can create just a one day suspension of the Patriot Act, then there will be a false flag operation, scaring the heck out of granny, and furthermore trying to water down Ron Paul's 2012 chances.

The bad guys are really crafty, sorry to say.

I think a phone call to

Harry Reid's office in DC is in order this morning to ask how it is that he swore to uphold the constitution but is now pushing the patriot act. I think we should all flood the phone line with this question. I will be pasting their answer on my facebook status.

Reid might as well have pulled out a copy...

of the constitution, took a crap on it and then set it on fire right there for all to see.

This really gets my panties in a bunch. Sadly, the media is all abuzz about American Idol and Dancing With the Stars winners while the US falls apart - like fattening the pigs before the slaughter.

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

Reid has been on the dark side for too long. He can't be turned.

He has lost his moral compass. The clash in the Senate could not be more polarized: Good vs. Evil....Right vs. Wrong.

The Battle for Liberty has begun.

Funny thing is he seems so nice and genuine.

It's as if he believes the lies and misinformation he spouts.

I really wonder if the man has the basic intelligence to "get it". It's like he's got a learning disorder, or he's just acting like Obama/Bush/Clinton and saying the lies to deceive the people.

My blood pressure goes up

My blood pressure goes up every time I see that slimy politician Harry Reid. He is typical of the sellouts in the Congress who have sold their souls.

Just posted this on my

Facebook....people...when we get videos like this of Rand and Ron please spread them as far and wide as you can. I am spreading the message and so should you!

Did anyone notice that when

Did anyone notice that when Harry Reid was speaking he was hunched over the podium reading from his notes, while Rand Paul did not need notes and spoke with conviction. You do not need notes if you believe in what you are saying.


the man

I love you Rand

and am as proud of you as I am of your father. I pray that people will be able to comprehend this and stand up to the PTB who are trying to crush Liberty and Truth. Thank you for what you are doing.


If you read these messages, thank you for fighting for us.

As for the rest - I think anyone who watches this video with even minimal IQ will see Rand is right. It's enough to anger most logical people to see Reid side stepping these important issues. It's only a matter of time, the fire is spreading and the truth is out there thanks to the Pauls' efforts.

when these instances occur,

when these instances occur, they help our cause because its clear Harry ried was manipulative. Bravo Rand

Thank you Rand!

Thank you for standing up for our rights!

time for another sticker, this one with the son.

Reid is a Piece of Work


"Can we not have a debate on a higher plane?"...

No, they cannot. Because they wither and die in such a place.

That is why they do all they can to create an environment of false accusation and off-Topic B.S. and try to pass legislation with little to no review, so their miserable lives of tyranny can have some pathetic resemblence to a real one of Liberty and Freedom.

Reid is just such a creature.

WOW...THIS is what I expect of a elected Representative.

Go get 'em Rand!

Looks like they're going to try to shut down debate tomorrow morning and pass it, according to this:


This was a man I would swear an oath to give my life into harms

way for. I would strap on my boots and lock and load for Rand Paul and I could die proud following his order because I would know it was the right thing to do, I would not have to question pulling the trigger, which means when the war was over and if I made it home, I would not have PTSD debating on if I killed the innocent. Rand Paul is a leader, and I would follow his example. I would not give Harry Reid one second of my mind, I would not follow that piece of garbage. I would take him in the ring and punch the hell out of him, gladly.

Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must. like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.-Thomas Paine

The R3volution requires action, not observation!!!!

There are some guys that are

There are some guys that are so obnoxious you want to walk up to and bury your fist in their face. Harry Reid is one of those guys I would take great pleasure in turning his face into hamburger.

I share your outrage and understand you

speak metaphorically. But on this forum it is best to support Dr. Paul's philosophy which, of course, is to support the rule of law and the Nonaggression Principle. Yes Reid is directly aiding tyranny and authoritarian coercion. Free speech is allowed even for such a hideous enabler of the Empire.

It is the Senate and the voters who must tame these turncoats. Our job as citizens is to educate the voters and get rid of the dishonest pols. To do that we must keep clearly to the high road.

Brilliant Post!

And well said :) it's Dr. Paul's wish that we take the road of Nonaggression, and even though we all would LOVE to pound Reid's face into the pavement, we should try and refrain from such aggressive desires ;)

Whether this side or that, Reid deserves what he'll get

"Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord...

Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good."

Romans 12:19 & 21

Overcoming evil with good involves the choice in believing that God gets involved in settling the score when we trust the outcome of our good choices with Him.

We'd all like to see that happen sooner than later, or suggest ways it ought to go down with our help, but I'm sure that God has something with His signature on it, ready for Reid, to avenge those he has harmed, BIG TIME!

I'm almost f***** speechless,

I'm almost f***** speechless, I mean you have Senators who sworn to protect the Constitution, and when actually one stand for the Constitution they call him terrorist. WTF!?

Are those traitors Senators TOTALLY unaccountable ? Are they like God ? I mean there's no way to fired them except if they pick up homosexuals in public bathrooms ?
