God grants liberty only to those who love it, and are always ready to guard and defend it. – Daniel Webster
to the White House now!
What Dr. Paul says in this rebuttal is valid, but a bit long for the average sheep.
We all know the attention span of the sheep goes about as far as the shepards first step, ergo...
If this going to be the length of a speech, they need to start adding high flash/rate imagery. The kind of stuff that keeps the attention and delivers a covert/overt subliminal message at the same time.
It is time to use the methods by which the enemy have been using.
The sound and video quality are total crap, I am very disappointed for these reasons, irrespective of the content of his speech. I was only 3 min and 17 sec/ into the speech when I wrote this. Now picture yourself as a short attention span Obama supporting liberal. Are you going to listen to this speech? Fuck No!
I am a Rand Paul supporter. I disagree totally with DP'rs who say Rand is a neocon. However tonight I objectively admit he dropped the ball. The sound and video engineers hired to do this should never be hired again. In this, let the free market work. I know people with the skills and equipment who could do better.
Virtually all of the content of his speech I agree with. But I can not let this go unsaid. I can not in good conscience allow this travesty of crap video and sound engineering to go unchallenged. I will continue to support Rand, trusting he is attempting to make inroads with those pieces of human fecal matter who have thus far been neoconned, however I will not stand by quietly and say nothing.
I agree with the message. I disagree, most vociferously, with the poor use of technology with which this speech was delivered.
All day long, all night long, 24/7, 365... every media pundit and talk show "behaviourist", is busy defining the problem: What is wrong with America. As if that's doing something at all. It's a big stall. We were here, years ago. After all is said and done, much is said and little is done. When it got down to it- the country was ready for Ron Paul...they burned him. They burned us. The party burned us. We had the numbers and the momentum. Ron Paul won the Iowa Caucus. But they didn't really wan't him, they didn't really want to fix this country at all. They're all frauds. But I gotta admit at least for now, Rand the truth sounds pretty good.
I didn't hear the Senator call for abolishing the Dept. of Education. Be careful of the use of the words "school choice." Listen to the wise words of Charlotte Isenbyt. If you believe critical thinking skills are important, get your children out of public schools now, better yet, don't send them there in first place. Besides dumbing down the population, gun free zones make them sitting ducks. It amazes me how little thought is given to the education and safety of our children.
Article 1 section 8.2
The Congress shall have Power To ...
To borrow Money on the credit of the United States;
The US Congress borrowed us into bankruptcy, over and over again. Congress is an unrepentant sinner.
The power of Congress to borrow money on the credit of the United States is hereby repealed. The power of Congress to issues interest bearing securities is prohibited from this day forward. All issued securities will be liquidated before government reopens the US Treasury for business.
Free includes debt-free!
The Tea Party, in my honest opinion, cannot win with Rand paul at the helm.
The man is simply too stupid...he's even too stupid to hide his own stupidity. I cringe when bloggers on the left tear him a new one, and then I have to agree with the bloggers because Rand actually said something drop-dead dumb.
Plan for eliminating the national debt in 10-20 years:
Specific cuts; defense spending: http://rolexian.wordpress.com/2011/01/03/more-detailed-look-a
Rand is "stupid" because he does not want to send US tanks to Egypt, does not believe Zionists did 9/11 and does not believe Sandy Hook was staged?
Clearly lacks serious knowledge of the Law and History and it shows. He is better than most in Congress but he is still not competent due to his lack of clear understanding of the Law and the history of the Law. If he was fully competent he would make much wiser suggestions about what direction to go which is only one direction obey the Law. If we obey the law to its end we will preserve liberty and prosperity. If we tinker with the knobs of tyranny we will only have a different tyranny.
The most powerful Law of Nature is Time. It is finite and we all will run out of it. Use this Law to your advantage, for it offers you infinite possibilities...
to comprehened our laws. He wants to amend the constitution to force a balanced budget. Rand, What is the tender in use for that budget? Would that be the mathimatically guaranteed to fail bank note that is unlawful tender? If you are going to bother amending the constitution how about we amend article 1 section 10 to bring the states into a lawful state of affairs and define a new debt free tender based on our productive capacity? And in this amendment forever prohibit debt based currency being used as tender and define its use as an act of war on the United States and the People? How about we include in this amendment that all debt incurred through fraudulent debt based currency of the Federal Reserve is odious debt based in fraud and infers no obligation upon the people? How about we include a constitutionally unchangeable salary of all elected officials in government in the newly defined debt free currency in order to promote stability? How about we also repeal the 16th amendment remove the IRS and return to our lives of privacy thus keeping the government in line with the 4th amendment? How about we integrate government funding into the structure of the new currency so that NO taxes are required and there is always inherently a balanced budget?
There are so many wise moves we could make but doing any Constitutional Amednments without addressing the tender issue is a fail. Ensuring that the amendment is not worded in a way that could somehow endorse the debt based unlawful tender forced upon us is difficult and dangerous. I do not trust Rand's knowledge of the Law to ensure that the word masters won't play him for fool aka the Wilsonian maneuver.
Rand seems like a prime example of what happens to a man with a run away ego. He makes suggestions of huge efforts that may have really bad consequences.
comes not from the constitution. Natural individual liberty comes from human reason. If people are consistently rational (do not believe in miracles, utopia or the need to sacrifice an individual to his neighbors or society), laws can be rationally adjusted - limit taxes, limit role of government, limit gov budget relative to GDP and make it balanced. On the other hand, if majority of people are not consistently rational, no constitution will chain them down for long.
is the chain and we hold this linked leash through a valid court action. We hold their feet to the fire through a Jury in a court or through the arms of a well regulated militia. This is rationality of Law. We are rational in accordance with the Law or we are Lawless.
thoughtful, reasonable and informative rebuttal. Keep it up Senator. +1
he can't believe he got cut from MSM.. the censorship continues.. GOP gave Rubio $30 million..
So we are still in for a good fight, and I'm really glad that Rand is willing to continue the fight with those who are willing to engender the GOP.
haha, I can't believe he has that in the background. The teapartyexpress. I hope he commandeered that entire operation otherwise the teapartyexpress is organized and run by elitist neocons
infiltrating and co-opting an organization that infiltrated and co-opted away from us. The Neocons snatched it up and then left it to die. Why not take it back from them and breathe new life into it?
Why not try?
understanding, when you have logos like that in the background it means that all the events are staged and funded by the money players behind the organization that calls itself "teapartyexpress". Those money players are definitely pro war.
Rand is most definitely anti war but The Tea Party can believe what it wants to. I don't think Tea party is really Pro war. I think they are mostly a load of angry half awake sheeple that just need a little guidance from someone they would be willing to listen to. Mostly I think tea party is just anti-Obama and if they think Rand can get that fool out of office then they will back him.
And why would the tea party or any other group of people who are inclined to back a liberty candidate be a bad thing? We have to build coalitions if we want any semblance of a chance of winning
maybe a better word is "engender"?
Steal it back.
They never completely controlled it or owned it anyway.
They were always looking over their shoulder at us in fear.
Much higher quality tube:
