It's time to get on the Rand Train...Submitted by Hendie28 on Fri, 03/08/2013 - 12:55
I don't think people realize the risk Rand took with his 13 hour Filibuster. Keep in mind he is a freshman Senator. What he did was spite the Neocon "Old Guard" by taking over the spotlight and has risked his credibility with the entire GOP.
Let's look at the Reactions by McCain and Graham, both Sr. Senators. They are furious over the "stunt" Rand pulled. He will be criticized and potentially pushed out of the Senate now, at least attempted to be pushed out.
Senator Paul has rallied other freshman to the cause and they are not playing nice or sitting on the sidelines and the establishment NEOCONS or not happy about it. The GOP Civil war is now in the open. Senator Paul has publically ridiculed McCain saying "he thinks the world is a battle ground...America is Not a battleground, we have rights and are protected by the Constitution".
The risk he has taken as a freshman Senator is unfounded. His "Stunt" has reignited the liberty movement and raised awareness to what is happening within the GOP. It is a changing of the Guard and we need to Rally behind his brave and Courageous attempt to push Liberty to the forefront of America's issues.
It is time we set aside our differences and opinions of Rand and get behind someone that knows how to play the game, and is a true constitutionalist!
He is his fathers son...
