Rand Paul's Values Voter Summit 2012 Speech

http://youtu.be/pySxPJqn3wA

Rand comes on at 7:20. It's really an awesome speech, especially considering that he is in a roomful of neocons. Very much anti-war.

I don't think people realize the genius of Rand Paul

Ron Paul speaks our language, Rand Paul speaks their language. He just gave a killer socially conservative speech while sneaking in a subtle anti-war tone. We love Ron because he just tells it like it is, he would never give a speech like that, he would end up talking about the NDAA and the Fed and you know the rest. But to the sheeple, those speeches don't work well because they just are too incompetent to understand them. Rands speeches are the ones that can wake up the masses.

Can't wait to see him in the debates in 2015.

Thanks for posting. I think this is one of Rand's best speeches.

Wrong Title

Should read: Rand Paul's "Looney Bin" 2012 Speech.

They are the legion of split personalities.

Anti-abortion/Pro War...

Pro-War?

Did you even listen to the speech? It is very, very anti-war. The poster below listed some quotes from it.

“It is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till." -J.R.R. Tolkien

A couple of gems from the speech

‎"I don't think the answer is in any politician. I don't think the answer is in any particular law. I think the answer really is that we need to somehow find our way back to God, find our way back. And I think we find that by taking the time from our busy lives, from everything around us, taking the time to reflect what are the important things. I hope we will find that out, I hope we will reflect, and I hope we will find spiritual renewal as a country and a people."

"I'm not a pacifist, but I do think it unacceptable not to hate war. I'm dismissive of those who champion war as sport and show no reluctance to engage in war. Any leader who shows glee or eagerness for war should not be leading any nation. I believe truly great leaders are reluctant to go to war and try mightily to avoid war."

While I've still got Rand Paul on watch, borderline probation, for his endorsement of Romney etc, I think he articulates better than anyone else, except maybe his dad, that you can't have freedom without morality... That it's literally morality that begets freedom. This is something the liberty movement MUST grasp if we desire sustainable change. I think many of us in the young generation have been raised in such an oppressed era where morality was eroded from our upbringing (not coincidentally at the same time as the erosion of freedom and promotion of war and welfare)... Many are waking up to the eroded freedom but haven't zeroed in on reversing the eroded morality.

Downvoting just because

You spammed us all to death about it on the Daily Paul chat. This is important material that must be viewed, but I'd rather you not take the credit for sharing the information.

I only spammed because

you downvoted it just to spite me.

Children, children.... Peace

Children, children.... Peace begets peace. sheesh.
