A great exchange

I'd give Kerry credit for his answers as well. I'd love to see the political discourse at this level all of the time.

Wha happened???

John Kerry used to hang out with the great Dr. Hunter S Thompson. He has sold out.

And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes, I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.

True Story?

HST took time to chill with John Kerry? I had never heard that before.


Washington, D.C. changed John Kerry

John Kerry did not change Washington, D.C.

I think we are all missing

I think we are all missing the most important thing about this video and that is who is the hottie behind Dr.Paul?


Agreed! I hope she's for non-intervention too, except for when it comes to me.

Dear Rand...

Fire Jesse Benton. Now.

Otherwise it will be very difficult for me to get behind you. Let McConnel have him.

These grassroots can catapult you. I flat out refuse to support you if he is your manager for 2016. Take what I say like a grain of fucking salt.

You can win. But you will only win if you embrace the same grassroots that got you elected in the first place. I feel that Jesse is a weasel and an opportunist. I dont care if he is on your staff...

What I care about is that you have people around you that want you to win.

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

Rand should have hammered him more about his hypocrisy

This guy says Cambodia was wrong but everything else was ok?? And let's not forget that congress declared war in ONE DAY against Japan. I think if the cause is worth the risk of life of American Citizens and worth the tax increase - in our case, an increase in debt - Congress will agree to take action. Do we honestly think the decisions about Grenanda, Panama, Libya, etc. could not have waited a day? It is very dangerous to give the President executive leeway in these decisions. It amounts to a king being able to wage war when he wants for his own self interests. How are we to know why he made such decisions unilaterally? If congress can't agree to go to war...well then maybe we shouldn't be there. Regardless...I'm tired of this crap. Repubs and Dema are all the same when they're in and out of power.

Ps...anyone else find it interesting in all these power hungry elites like the Presidential loser John Kerry and Hillary Clinton and others who keep getting promoted to the top spots in our country even though they are all clueless idiots?

Leave people alone and they'll leave us alone.

Kerry @8:20: "sledgehammer approach." Yup, and Rand used one...

on you, Senator Kerry. I like what Rand did here, a lot!

I'd like to hear those Rand

I'd like to hear those Rand haters now. Dare I say he got the message across as well as, if not better than, Ron.

ad nauseam

i'd like to hear those rand haters now.
i'd like to hear those randbots now.

is this what we're in store for until 2016?

Isn't this guy

heavily invested in MIC stocks? Conflict of interest or what? Corporatism at its finest.

warning popup window for some at the spectator.

Thank you Rand

You have established in the interveiw with Kerry, that Kerry sees the tax payer as a piggy bank to fule arms wars, and other nation's people as fodder, or chips, on what price we must pay, in the form of weapons. Pakistan loses 6,000 people, American's piggy bank sends Pakistan f-16s to say,, THANKS.

Rand also made it clear that Kerry is more in tuned with a UN Resolution and a US Resolution when it comes to war.

Rand has flushed out Obama'a SOS's Clinton and Kerry.. and proving he is even minded, mild mannered with a fire in his belly, and I'm very pleased.. will have to watch this vid a few times for educational purposes. I really appreciate the education. If it were not for Rand.. we would be doing a lot of quessing about what's in store for America when it comes to Foreign Policy.

The only thing I wish that could have been brought up is the issue about North Korea testing nukes aimed for the USA. Maybe that headline today was BS.. but so was Kerry's responses to Senator Rand Paul.

I bet Ron is very proud of Rand. I am.

Kerry Looks Like a 'Dead Corpse' - No Life In Him

Rand did very well with Kerry. This bonesmnn will lie cheat and steal and murder for the "Brotherhood"

John Kerry's real name is John Kohn. He changed his name in order to make a successful run at politics in Mass...He is not of Irih decent..

Just sayin..

BTW, Kerry or Kohn used "Double Speak" (Bullsh*t) to sidestep Rand Paul's pointed questioning...Rand cornerd him perfectly. Kerry looked beaten and bruised...Rand - Knockout in the 3rd!

It's exactly bullshit

It's exactly bullshit arguments like this that give libertarians a bad name. John Kerry didn't "change his name to make a run", his grandparents did when they immigrated to America, like so many other immigrants. While it's true that their original surname was Kohn, they changed it to Kerry way back in in 1901. They also didn't choose it because it "sounded Irish" (they were originally Austrian Jews), but because they chose randomly out of names that were offered to them. Considering that John Kerry was born in 1943, I really don't see how he could have had any influence on this.

I don't mind grilling him on the things he deserves to be grilled on, but making such a retarded argument about his NAME is the fucking lowest of the low.

"Dead Corpse" is right. That's why he's called Lurch.

He only gets excited when he's throwing other people's metal over the WH fence.
The story that John Kerry supposedly threw away his Vietnam medals in protest of the war but in fact now proudly displays those medals on his Senate office wall seems to resurface every couple of months. The latest flap is courtesy ABC News:

'I Saw You'

Gibson said he was there 33 years ago when Kerry threw medals over the fence. "I saw you throw medals over the fence, and we didn't find out until later [interrupted] that those were someone else's medals," Gibson said.

Kerry, not listening to the end of Gibson's statement, said: "Charlie, Charlie, you're wrong. That is not what happened. I threw my ribbons across. And all you have to do ..."

Gibson tried to clarify that Kerry threw someone else's medals over the fence, but Kerry would not give him an opportunity.

Kerry eventually clarified that he did throw two medals (not his) over the fence at the request of two veterans.

Kerry you EFFING HYPOCRITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GREAT questions Rand.

Yesterday I criticized Rand for not asking these VERY questions of the CURRENT Secretary of State.

But now he NAILED it against Kerry.

The utter hypocrisy of Kerry who loudly (and correctly) protested the Vietnam war but is now harping the "War Powers Act" which is abused as much as are executive orders - did not go unnoticed.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."

I stopped buying Heinz ketchup back in 2004

when I realized it's owned by Kerry's wife. Heh, heh,... get 'em where it hurts :)

Kerry is a bonesman.

Rand Paul 2016!

The guy has the right stuff. He is a pitbull.

Campaigning will commence

Campaigning will commence within two years.. We need to start preparing now!

I submit that the campaigning

I submit that the campaigning has already begun. Campaigns used to slowly ramp up over the course of a year or two. Campaigning is now 24/7, 365 days out of each year.

Rand is on fire

Thanks for posting.

Why all the sudden does Rand love Israel so much?

All his concerns about Libya and Syria are because of potential fallout for Israel, and not Americans?

He say's stop giving weapons to Israels enemies, but he doesn't say stop giving weapons to Israel as well?

Sounds like somebody's fishing for votes of the neocon variety.

We see this all the time in congress, Israel this, Israel that...

Who gives a fuck about Israel, I thought congress was the United State's legislative body, not the State of Israel's.

I'll say it again, Rand is not his father.

Just stop.

Just stop.

Stop what?

pointing out the obvious?

Rand's dead set on 2016, and he knows the republican base has an Israel fetish.

His father had no problem standing on his principles and made it clear he believed in ending foreign aid for everyone, including Israel, no exceptions.

Don't tell me Rand isn't pandering to neocons by defending foreign aid to Israel.

Rand said he wanted to end

Rand said he wanted to end all foreign aid.

And thats why...

when ever he's asked about it, he praises Israel a a "great ally" and that we should cut other countries off first, always kicking the can down the road?

Actions speak louder than words.

We can't start treating our

We can't start treating our "allies" as enemies. Especially when we are trying to win the White House and that so called ally has one of the biggest lobbies in Washington. The end result is still the same wether we cut them off or wean them off.

Be smart guys. I'd be willing to bet one of Rands trusted advisors is his own father.
