Rand Paul turns 50

Whenever I despair, as Lennon wrote, "nothing's gonna change my world," I think that on Rand Paul's 40th birthday (10 years ago today) his father was the answer to a trivia question at best. So much progress has been made.

excellent point about the progress over the last 10 years

Alot more will happen in these next ten.

Shame that Senator Paul isn't more optomistic about seeing a drastic change in his lifetime. Things CAN turn around for the better, not only in regards to foreign aid but to the fed, to peoples' beliefs etc. etc.

Must be hard to hit a milestone like 50 and have your son bring shame to your family via national news...and the timing with his trip to Israel, how embarrassing.

May the Lord help the Paul family as they seek His help.

Wow, 50?

Rand looks good for his age! He doesn't look 40, let alone 50. Happy birthday, Rand!


Today is my psycho ex-wife's 50th birthday too...

Very bad omen

God Bless You Rand...

... Happy Birthday and thank-you for everything you are doing for our country.

We need to get an early start on 2016: Support Rand PAC 2016




If my math is correct.. that would be around the same age Ron Paul ran for President in 88. :)

Happy Birthday Rand!

I turn 50 this year too..

I turn 50 this year too.. guess I'm in good company.

Capricorn, huh?

Tell me this doesn't sound like Rand. Serious, hardworking, humorless.


The sign Capricorn is one of the most stable and (mostly) serious of the zodiacal types. These independent, rocklike characters have many sterling qualities. They are normally confident, strong willed and calm. These hardworking, unemotional, shrewd, practical, responsible, persevering, and cautious to the extreme persons, are capable of persisting for as long as is necessary to accomplish a goal they have set for themselves. Capricorn are reliable workers in almost any profession they undertake. They are the major finishers of most projects started by the 'pioneering' signs; with firm stick-to-it-ness they quickly become the backbone of any company they work for.

Capricorn make of themselves, resourceful, determined managers; setting high standards for themselves and others. They strive always for honesty in their criticism of self, they respect discipline from above and demand it from those beneath them. In their methodical, tough, stubborn, unyielding way, they persist against personal hardship, putting their families and/or their work before their own needs and welfare to reach their objectives long after others have given up and fallen by the wayside. In fact when practical ability allied with the drive of ambition are required in employees to make a project succeed, Capricorn are the people to hire. They plan carefully to fulfill their ambitions (which often include becoming wealthy), they are economical without meanness, and able to achieve great results with minimum effort and expense. Because of their organizing ability they are able to work on several projects simultaneously.

They have a great respect for authority but may not, if they reach high rank, be willing to listen to other opinions on things they are directly responsible for. As the ranking authority figure in a given situation they expect their underlings to be as self disciplined as they themselves are, and to perform every task undertaken to the highest standard.

They are, nevertheless, fair as well as demanding. Among their equals they are not always the most pleasant of work fellows for they are reserved and too conservative, valuing tradition more than innovation, however valuable the latter, and they are often humorless. There is also a tendency to pessimism, melancholy and even unhappiness which many Capricorn are unable to keep to themselves, especially if they fail personally. In the extreme this trait can make them a very depressed individual; ecstatic happiness alternating with the most wretched kind of misery which is so subconsciously buried that he or she should seek help if such emotions become frequent. For the above reason, capable Capricorn should spend many hours in meditation, gathering the strength to control such inner emotions.

But wait! There's more:

Thanks for that, I think. I

Thanks for that, I think. I share a b-day with Rand, one year younger. Love humor though.

10-15 million more voters need to believe in non-interventionism (liberty) at home and abroad to change America. Minds changed on Syria. Minds changing on privacy. "Printing money" is part of the dialogue. Win minds through focus, strategy.

Does it ring a bell

Is it like you, too?

Or do you smile more (lol :)
