Rand Paul SLAMS Paul Ryan's budget at RNC! Acknowledges he must prove himself to the Liberty MovementSubmitted by grassleaves73 on Thu, 08/30/2012 - 14:53
Senator Rand Paul did something courageous on the floor of the Republican National Convention in calling out Congressman Paul Ryan's budget for what it is: basically a tepid half-hearted effort at cutting spending. At the end of this article, he also acknowledged that he cannot count on his father's followers flocking to him. He will have to earn their trust and support. Sounds to me like he is telling the Liberty Movement: "Watch me for the next couple years and make your decision to support me or not based on my actions in Congress"
This follow-up article puts an excellent spin on what Rand is doing and acknowledges that, if he does not sell out by supporting big government and corporate interests in the Senate, then he is doing much more than anyone realizes to advance the Liberty Movement:
Lets be grownups about Rand folks. Ron Paul himself acknowledges at the end of the video here:
that all he and his son disagree on is strategy to accomplish their common end of returning America to its founding principles. I am not saying you have to decide today whether to support Rand Paul for President 2016 or not, but just do not be rash. I advise you to make your decision on that based on a larger view accumulated over years of observation of Rand's actions in the Senate. Thank you and please be patient and keep working! We are winning, lets not stop now. Lets push forward, work to elect the local liberty candidates and so give whoever our Liberty torch-bearer is in 2016 a solid Congressional group to back him up.
