Handcuffs on already

The House gave this new patriot Rep a grand total of 90 seconds or so to deliver a speech. I guess that's the norm for inaugural speeches, idk.

Massie is in an adjacent district to mine and I couldn't vote for him, but I hope to meet him someday, and I hope that he displays the same principled, pro Constitution vote that Dr. Paul has over the years.

He and Amash will be TWO voices crying in the wilderness in the House. So with Ron leaving, we now have 2 in the House (more?), and Rand in the Senate.

Some moral voices of sanity in an ocean of deceit, immorality, and insanity.

I pray that he keeps his purity and never wavers, as he says he will do.

I only wish that Phil Moffit was governor, because instead of Texas being the story of secession, we'd be talking about NULLIFICATION big time in KY, as well as secession.

More republicans.

Good luck.

And Rand is a sellout, amnestying, Establishment supporter. He's damaged goods already.

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.

I have high hopes for Mr. Massey.

Ron's shoe's are hard to fill, but between Reps Massey and Amash we might begin to fill them.

Just watched this after Ron's Farewell address

I had a heavy heart after that, but this lifted my spirits. There's still hope, and there are more coming to carry the banner. Do us proud Rep. Massie.

KY sends great people to washington lately

But it still baffles me because we absolutely do not believe in liberty here.

I think the people in our state just get pissed at the feds nosing in on their game. They want to be the tyrants, who make sure we remain mired in ignorance and poverty.

We still aren't over alcohol prohibition yet, for Christ sake!

I worked and donated for both of these guys, and we will keep on. I hope they show some leadership that our state desperately needs.

Thankful for this guy.

Thankful for this guy.

If I remember correctly

If I remember correctly Massie has a great reputation for cutting waste and fraud at the local level....he has made many looter enemies because of it. I think he was a judge(could be mistaken) this guy by his record is already a Ron Paul republican. Ron Paul himself obviosly thinks so. I have my eye on this guy....he may well be up there with Justin Amash in a couple years

Cool video, thanks for

You do realize this site is

You do realize this site is inspired by a man who is technically a Republican? Why are you here again?

Through necessity.

That necessity no longer exists. America HATES these two leftist parties and there has NEVER BEEN A BETTER TIME OR CIRCUMSTANCE to chuck 'em both.

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.

You do understand

that parties can change don't you?

No.

They can PROMISE "change," but neither the leftist democrat party nor leftist republican party has, or will ever change.

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.

Parties are made

up of people. If the people in the party change the party changes.

Same as government, actually.

to hate

Based on name is pointless

Oooopsy-dooopsy...

No, not "name," but PARTY. LEFTIST, UNCONSTITUTIONAL Central Government Planning Party.

With this dude and Rand, why

With this dude and Rand, why do I get the feeling Kentucky is about to have an economic boom?

Yup.

Hopefully all of Rand's illegal aliens can be put back to work!

That was quite a bear hug - tears in my eyes!

That did look like a pretty hefty bear hug.

I imagine Massie must be respected by Paul to get that kind of welcome.

I look forward to seeing what kind of congressman Massie turns out to be.
