Thank God Rand Paul is in the Senate!

EVERYONE of our Reps and Senators should be asking the SAME QUESTION, but they are NOT.

Is is this first-term senator-RAND PAUL-who is stepping up and providing REAL LEADERSHIP on this issue.

Great job Rand! Your father must be so proud!



Someone should tell Rand that

Someone should tell Rand that not answering does not infer guilt. It is a core value of our Republic and the U.S. Constitution. That being said, I fully agree that not answering should bar him from confirmation.

Paleeze! Someone should tell you that he is free not to answer


look, you are free to not answer questions at a job interview and THEY are free not to hire you.

he is winning

that's what winners do

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.

I can't wrap my head around the moral double standard

that Rand is applying here. It's fine if our drones knock off a whole line of cars in a "signature strike" abroad...but that's not what we want to be doing here.

HERE, people should be entitled to a trial.

Why is it okay to just blow up a whole line of cars in the Middle East?? Oh...because all foreigners are just fair game?

Because Rand's a neocon who's mentioned the illegality of those wars before, but he still wants war?

Thanks for blocking the confirmation. Rand, but I hope you'll stop aiding and abetting the neocons in general, with your twisted "logic."

one issue at a time

that's how it is done.

"Once you become knowledgeable, you have an obligation to do something about it."- Ron Paul

I think he is picking his

I think he is picking his battles one at a time. A strategy the Liberty Movement has completely missed at times. His calculated and strategical moves might be the difference between Presidential Candidate Ron Paul and a potential President Rand Paul. Stop your quacking.

Don't tell me what to do.

Rand speaks as if all foreigners are fair game and I see no justification for that behavior...*NONE*

Rand Continues To Baffle Me

He is all over the place. I never know where he is coming from. He was awesome here though.

It is time to make First Amendment bombs:

It is time to make First Amendment bombs:

* telephone bombs

* email bombs

* voluntary mass mailing from citizens

SHAKE YOUR Congress critters ! Damn it. I'm no citizen, I have no voice but in the street.

YOU HAVE MORE VOICE - for your reps. Yell AT THEM for YOUR rights back ! They don't care about immigrants, even legal.

They are still PAID to care about you, supposedly. You, CITIZENS.

WHAT am I missing ?!!

Are we going to wait to be numerous enough in the streets?

Or to raise enough in money bombs?

WE CAN STILL USE THE 1ST Amendment. Outdoors AND towards these politicians.

Thank you Rand, at least.

Are we going to wait this 1st Amendment completely vanishes, TOO ?!

This is disturbing

What a mess our republic has become.

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

Other Than

Rands father. There is no other representative I would support.

Good Job RAND!

Tell it!!


very scary to see that we've gotten to this point, this government is very close to becoming completely lawless and dangerous to those who disagree with tyranny. The liberty movement is looking down the barrel of a gun literally.

Brennan can't even promise that he won't start offing whichever Americans he wants, and they still want to make him CIA director??

"I might want to start serial killings in America or I might not. I don't have to tell you that as part of our interview here."

He and Obama should be impeached and tried for treason.

Can't wait to cast my vote...

For Rand Paul for president as I've done for his dad last two go arounds except it was during primaries but i believe I'll be voting for rand in the general!

Patriot. It takes guts to

Patriot. It takes guts to delay a confirmation by yourself. There may be other that I don't know about.

He is a completely gutsy and courageous guy.

Go Rand!

Where are the comments?

For those of us who care about justice and due process, I think it would be good to visit Rand's official web site and leave a comment of support.

I care about justice and due process for ALL

Rand only wants justice for Americans. He makes that very clear in this video.

If or when he stops being a neocon, I will probably support him.

NOT until then.
