Every Time The Government Subsidizes One Player

It creates an undue uphill battle for others. People see only the obvious side of the equation.

Not what the media peddles. We take money out of the private sector to "create" jobs. It's insane.

Good Job Rand! I don't

Good Job Rand! I don't understand the people here who don't like Rand. He's only been in the Senate a couple of years and has done good things. The 2 best, voting against NDAA and potentially stop a war with Russia. Rubio wanted to admit Georgia the Nation into NATO, Georgia is currenty having a territoial dispute with Russia, we could have been dragged into fighting Russia for Georgia due to NATO treaty. It required a unanimous vote and Rand killed it. If you want to read more into the story its on Pat Buchanans' site. RP Senior is irreplaceable, but Rand may be more like him that everyone thinks, just not so outspoken. Just my 2 cents....

*Wisconsin Constitution* Article I, Section 25 "The people have the right to keep and bear arms for security,defense,hunting,recreation or any other law-abiding purpose"

Taxing Millionaires

People want the government to tax millionaires more. I say we should subsidize them less or rather not at all.

when can the market pick the winners and losers

I like Rand here that is fosho

That was awesome

send it viral people, we need to build up the Rand brand now for future elections. I just sent it out.

Get em Rand. Love it.

Can it be more blatant that the Department of Energy needs to end. Less govt=less corruption.

Agreed.

It's in Rand's budget proposal to eliminate it, I hope it gets passed.

Pawnage/Face Plant!

Fear the Rand oh great establishment.

In Liberty

Not only Chu

95% of government clerks in position of power wont pass the SMELL TEST either.

Chu is lying through his teeth

He Knows. More than that, Chu knows that there will be no serious investigation or charges. Just some momentary embarrassment that will become yesterday's news, then hearsay, then nothing at all.

After all, didn't Eric Holder get treated like he was coated in Teflon with Fast And Furious gun running fiasco in Mexico? Doesn't Bernanke still have his job in the Fed, even when Dr's Paul's last year audit revealed trillions of US dollars loaned out to us businesses and foreign interests? Was Obama censored by a majority by Congress for his unconstitutional military action in Libya? Isn't the TSA still violating our 4th amendment rights on a daily basis?
Voter fraud still persisting throughout Dr. Paul's campaign despite ample evidence?

Rand Paul was wonderful grilling Chu. Heroic. But he might as well be tilting at the metaphoric windmills he mentioned in his cross-examination of Chu. There is no outrage in DC. No call from the President for Chu to resign.

I'm believe any investigation done today, no matter how many hard facts are found and presented, will lead to nothing. Future investigations serve only one purpose, as a postmortem on the various causes to the death of liberty by corruption of those in office who have violated their oath.
I fear that freedom in this country has reached terminal proportions due to the widespread cancer of self-interest of those in office.I fear even Ron and Rand Paul's best efforts cannot stave it off.

Yep, they are all above the law.

And JFK was shot by a lone nut. Nothing shady happened on 911. We are free. All lies and no justice. The only time they pretend there is justice is when they railroad a non cooperating politician. Like a guy like James Traficant or maybe Blagojovich. I think what Blagojovich was doing was the norm for these sellouts. He must have been challenging someone's authority. I do know the day before the news came out about him, he threatened to drop Bank of America as Illinois' banker. Sad.

WOW

PWNED. This guy had no clue what hit him at the end of this, his face is priceless. He looked like Simba right before the huge stampede of hyenas. Rand Paul is really making a name for himself.

Randy

Rand Paul is really coming into his own. Very eloquent and to the point. I love how he cuts through Chu's equivocation like it never happened and gets back to his point.

Yes He Stopped Him From Beating The Clock

by cutting him off and returning to the point.

Rand's possible strategy.....

At our caucus I was brutally honest, and so was not selected as a delegate. I was thinking later, I should have toned it down, maybe even claimed I was leaning to Santorum. Then I would have been elected, and could vote for Ron Paul at county.

Most politicians make promises they don't keep. Maybe Rand is a guy who leans to the status quo, but once elected president, he would go further the other direction in support of Constitution.

I thought the same thing

About what I am going to say at my caucus but I can came to the conclusion that if I did that I would be doing exactly what they do, So I gotta say you did the right thing by standing on your principles.

Don't you dare AmeriRock

we need you in there. You don't have to lie, just be vague and only hit on the points that the others agree with us on. Please. Keep up the great work!!!!!

You can still..

You can still stand on your own principles, but tailor your delivery in a way that doesn't put off average voters.

A shame that......

all the " News Stations " will never ever show this on the nightly news.
It also looked like Rand was the only one there questioning him.

None of the schemes they are hatching will ever work. I think they are intentionally driving prices up so these "green" energy projects look competitive. Problem is that central planners always jack the cost of things up 10 fold.

I am a big supporter of alternative energy, but disagree very much with central planners forcing their "vision" on the rest of us. The market will solve all this stuff, and there aren't any nudges needed by Keynesian busy bodies.

Great job grilling there Rand.
The country need more senators like Rand, and Congressmen like his father
