There is no duration defined in the Oath

Probably too huge a job...

But is there anyone out there that could transcribe Paul's speech?

Much respect

to anyone who takes the challenge to transcribe. Once that is accomplished though, the speech can be easily translated to other languages and spread around the world. All citizens of the free world need to hear this message. There is no way Obama or Romney are going to make a speech like that, especially without a teleprompter. Dr. Paul is a Genius.

Anybody know the total in

Anybody know the total in attendance. It looked pretty packed and those stadiums can hold quite a bit.

Looked like around 8,000.

I don't know about the overflow outside though.


I know there's some mixed

I know there's some mixed feelings out there about Rand - but I gotta say I was very happy to hear audit the pentagon. I still stand with Rand even if I don't agree with his endorsement of Captain Magic Underpants.

Actions speak louder than words

He could say anything now and I won't believe that he believes it in his heart. Not everyone gets an example set for a lifetime and then disregards it.

People like you are one of

People like you are one of the big reasons movements like these take so long to gain any traction, as you're more likely to eat one of your own than that of a rival. So you and I don't agree with Rand one hundred percent, who does? I don't agree with Ron one hundred percent, but both he and Rand are sure a lot closer than most of the rest out there are. Try to be a vacuum and get the closest closer to you instead of blowing everyone out that doesn't fit your cookie cutter ideological world view.

I just don't get it. Rand is so much better than just about everyone else in the Senate and yet half of us spend much more time crushing him on odd stuff when most of the rest of the Senate do or don't do the same things we're irate over him with and yet also have none of the many positives he brings to the table. And we wonder why we lose so often??

Rand endorsing Romney was a

Rand endorsing Romney was a clear momentum squelch on the revolution riding strong into Tampa. Frankly, it was an unexpected and direct kick in the family jewels to those of us who are vested in this effort. There is no strategic answer that can make up for endorsing in Romney everything the liberty movement is vehemently working to expose and replace.
Rand is wrong. There is no two ways about it. He of all people should be well aware of the definition of "a lesser of two evils"...
What happened to standing on principle?

“Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the government take care of him better take a closer look at the American Indian.” ― Henry Ford.

Are you still crying about your hurt feelings?

You make up some kind of principle and claim foul and expect others to care.

Or maybe you're paid to drag out this dead horse for another whacking.

Free includes debt-free!

How many has Rand signed on to audit the Fed?

I wonder how that came to pass?

No one man made or broke the campaign, IMO. Because the final results are not in.

Free includes debt-free!

Just Like

Rand's "radical" request to audit the Pentagon is about as likely as Romney auditing the FED.

The defense department is about as "audited" as any government agency can be. Other than exposing a few $400 toilet seats what is their really to gain? It's the interventionist foreign *policy* that is the problem not the toilet seats.

Now, if you audited the NSA, TSA, DHS etc. that might be different. Good luck with that.


I hear where you guys are

I hear where you guys are coming from - but 1) I do think Rand has a different approach, and 2) I believe an audit of the fed will lead to the pentagon amongst other departments/agencies. But I hear you and understand.

I think that you are right...

I think that you are right, Rand has a different approach. Ron approaches from the front ready to shake your hand and Rand approaches from the rear and puts a knife in his back.

Thank you

I tried to watch this on CSPAN with no luck. I am so happy to see and hear this!

For those who weren't there...

The OPENING WAS ELECTRIC while Ron waited for the audience to stop screaming with excitement!!

The opening applause lasted two (2) full minutes. The audience was going crazy with cheers forever, before, Ron even had the chance to say hi.

That's why he looks humbled on the intro.

It was incredible.

The noise in the Sun Dome was extremely satisfying. The cheers would not stop.

I started

at 9:40

Only two Senators stand out for me in 50 years.

Mike Gravel who read the Pentagon Papers into the Record. He also filibustered the extension of the draft.

I like Sen. Paul. I am glad to hear many of the things he has said in the Senate.

Free includes debt-free!

Integrity bleeds into a lifetime

Both if you have it and if you don't.

i started at 9:40 too.
