Excellent! Senator Rand Paul Takes On Government Bullies

Book Review by The New American: Government Bullies: How Everyday Americans Are Being Harassed, Abused, and Imprisoned by the Feds, by Senator Rand Paul, New York: Center Street Hatchett Book Group, 2012, 280 pages, hardcover.

The bad news is that after little more than a year and a half in federal office, U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) was able to fill a book full of instances he has come across of outrageous abuses of power by government officials lording it over people they allegedly serve. The good news is that there are a few people in Congress willing to stand up and sound the alarm over a once-free nation’s slide into the practices and policies of a police state. In a Congress that is shamefully servile before an overreaching and arrogant executive branch, Rand Paul and his father, U.S. Representative and two-time Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul (R-Texas), who wrote the foreword for his son’s book, stand out as men who take seriously their oath to uphold the Constitution.

Paul’s slender volume contains 21 chapters filled with one story after another of “government bullies” trampling on the rights of Americans in their homes and places of business. One paragraph sums up the tyranny of a government that has jumped the tracks of its legal and reasonable limits:

If Rand continues to fight against these kinds of evils...

I can get over him endorsing Romney. We MUST have people in government who fight against the machine.

Shame on You Rand Paul

critics!

You people who have a dim understanding of the issues and how you are having your rights protected from the inside of the system by good gentlemen like

Senator Rand Paul shame on you!

Good review.

What I find interesting about many of the examples of government bullying mentioned in the book is that they have been going on for quite a long time. These are not the result of 9/11 like the TSA personal assaults. Many of the raids and prosecutions resulted from the UN Agenda 21 and EPA overreach. This is all part of the move to world government and loss of sovereignty.

There was however no mention of specific remedies for those hapless individuals caught in this web and spending years in prison for no detectable cause. Perhaps a new political platform plank could be to pardon all those serving sentences for these offences.

It is good that someone in a position of some authority is at least publicising these things and the book itself should perhaps be used in promotional efforts for the Constitutional conservative message.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

Rand,
