This morning when I dropped off my son at my dad's house I noticed he was watching Fox as usual. They were airing a segment on Hillary Clinton's testimony concerning Benghazi and I couldn't resist saying a few positive words for Rand Paul. Keep in mind my father voted Romney and thought Ron Paul was out of step on some issues, especially Foreign Policy. I went on to say that I believed Rand Paul's grilling of Hillary was justified and perfectly timed (live TV). He totally agreed that Rand Paul handed her a bag of embarrassment and even chuckled a little when I mentioned how he held himself so well in discrediting her representation as Secretary of State.
My father then went on to say he heard Rand Paul may be running for President in 2016 and that he actually might not be bad for that position!?!? He implied that Rand wasn't quite as extreme as his father and that he holds himself well in the Senate and is overall a powerful force for Liberty. Winning!
I also brought the odd silence regarding Sandy Hook and he agreed it was weird that the media has been so silent on this "massacre". I told him it was strange that o lawsuits had been filed by the parents, no images or "authentic" video has been released on MSM channels and the fact that an "assault rifle/weapon" was not used in the shooting itself was quite a revelation, considering the fact that the MSM and the Obama Administration was so hastily pushing Gun Control due to the "assault weapon" being used in the shooting. He told me he though even if the MSM was to cover it more they would probably just cover it up even more?!?
Let me just say that we are not alone in our views and critical reasoning and thinking, whether here on the DP or as dissident voices in the crowd...long live Liberty!
