AnCapMercenary - "GREAT speech against Iran War footing."
Could this be Rand Paul's defining moment? Whatever your previous thoughts on Rand were, you need to watch this speech. His speech today made me proud to say that I'm a Rand Paul fan.
I'll write down his opening line as a preview to the rest of the speech:
"Im going to tell you the story today of a love affair. It's a story that's... a steamy one, a story of illicit behavior. Of treachery and of gluttony. It's a story that involves intrigue and deception. It's a story of unintended consequences, and it's a story of anger and violence... It is the story of American foreign aid".
Rand also reveals in his speech that he does indeed want to end all foreign aid, but at the very least do away with it to those that don't even show a hint of respect towards us. He's trying to show the absurdity of the foreign aid. I know some people had questions on that, wondering why Rand is only pursuing the few countries that he is. Rand made it clear that if it were up to him, there would be no more foreign aid.
Some very powerful words throughout the whole speech, and a lot of truth bombs. He also touches up on our foreign policy in general. Hope you all watch!
