He will make a great

He will make a great president one day

Why didn't he say who THAT

Why didn't he say who THAT man is? Rand I had tears in my ears waiting for you to say it... say it with pride... but it never came... ... why I ask? This would have been a great opportunity to say who that man is to lead us.... we all know who he is..

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

He didn't have to say it,

He didn't have to say it, everyone knew who he is talking about!

He's really good.

Yeah, Rand has it going on. He's only going to get better.

In Liberty

mitt newt and insantas speeches

are all going to sound empty after that, I think he stole the thunder.


Rich people are not on Ron Paul's side. That is his and our main problem. And that is an indication that the rich people did not get or stay rich by means of a free market, but otherwise...

But the mega wealthy, who are

But the mega wealthy, who are enriched by the current system, are a small minority. Lotta plain folks at CPAC.

Yes it was a great speech

Yes it was a great speech but..um..did he not speak for Ron there? I mean..did he not even say to vote for his DAD?

It's politics. It wasn't the moment to stump for his Dad

And he didn't need to, it was implied by who he is and the context of what he said.

Much classier in this instance anyway, imo

You don't think that on top

You don't think that on top of everyones mind as Rand spoke every word was the name Ron Paul?

If someone else made the speach there would be some doubt in some peoples minds to the answers to the questions in his speach, but coming from him it was kinda like holding a neon sign above his head as he asked the questions about who the president should be.

Hi Crickett

I think we've been duped by the establishment into thinking Rand is not good enough.

But in my honest opinion he's just as good. I mean he's done more for liberty than anyone else in the senate. And I think he will also be standing alongside his father after his term is done. I really believe Rand will be here for us when it comes to be his time as POTUS.

That was the best part.

that he didn't. I'm sure every one was expecting him to. It was a very good speech filled full of Ron Paul with out mentioning his name that's why it was perfect. (NO the candidates speak on Saturday)

Excellent speech, Rand. You brought home the bacon. Good tastin' bacon.

Wish the audio at the end was on, however. Was that applause thunderous, anyone? Sounded as though it was about to be.

i have never really watched him speak and this was a blast !!
he is a great orator it seems.
2016 seems would be a good year !
we might have a President Paul then, if we fail this time !

Dr.Ron Paul's 2002 Predictions

If we fail this time...

there won't be a next time.

If you fail this time...

Then Rand will be the one to pick up the pieces and rebuild.

man he dished out some red

man he dished out some red meat there!

Sweet Johnson..

The message AND the delivery. 1000% focused on the good Dr getting the nomination and taking it out, but goodness me Rand just got all Reagan up in here! How "Presidential" was that MSM!
This speech was full of intent and passion, delivered on the platform of liberty. Saying it how it is in the only style the Paul's know. Honesty.

Rand Paul 2020!!!

Work like you don't need the money, love like you've never been hurt and dance like no one is watching.

Like father, like son...

They are both bosses

This speech is for the record books.

What a smart guy...obviously the product of Ron and Carol. The speech is brilliant...I don't see a teleprompter...and I see no reference or plug for his father in the whole speech.

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

Wow, what a speaker

I disagree, I don't believe he had a teleprompter. Reminded me very much of a fabulous preacher at the pulpit. Everyone was hanging on his words. Intelligent and impressive! Great job to the Paul family. I have heard many say that Rand is the most intelligent in the room and after that speech I can believe it. But... he still doesn't energize a room or a crowd the way his father does!

That was..

..a magnificent speech! Beautifully done. He has the makings of a good president.

That was truly a GREAT

That was truly a GREAT speech!!! Upvote and watch please!

Pretty good orator

But he doesn't articulate the root causes and root philosophies well enough.

On class warfare, I have no vested interest in the rich paying more or less (especially given the poor pay high inflation tax). My concern is that whatever my financial lot, that I have the right to the fruit of my labors.

Still gonna bump you with a positive vote tho! Excellent Speech!!! http://www.dailypaul.com/212757/rand-paul-i-have-a-question-...

Great Speech! I Do Believe He Was Reading from a Teleprompter.

Nothing wrong with that, especially since Obama uses one all of the time. Ran Paul our future President, after Ron Paul!


OMG...please watch this, holy

OMG...please watch this, holy cow! Rand's gone RAMBO!
