NEWSFLASH: Rand Paul is Awesome and is our best politician and the best presidential candidate!

Who do you know that you agree with 100%? Probably no one including your closest friends and family. So you can't expect to agree across the board with Rand Paul either.

But man, Rand is an excellent man to have in the US Senate. He has true, real self-confidence, and charisma and humor that can charm audience members from all different spectrums.

He's a real activist in the Senate, and in society. Filibustering against drones, standing up to the establishment leaders, being critical of foreign policy.

Why complain about a few mistakes he has made, or misspoken words? I swear, sometimes liberty fans that criticize Rand would only be satisfied if he was a direct clone that walked, talked, and danced like Ron Paul.

Let's keep our allies when we have them. Rand is our ally!! Don't be blind that you can't see that! Don't shoot ourselves in the foot!

Rand isn't burning his bridges either. He's not shooting himself in the foot. He actually has character and principles that he lives by, as can be seen when he expresses himself and the actions he takes. He's not making enemies in Washington. He's employing real genuine social skills and personal relations with all his colleagues.

It's about time we started relating to each other in a positive and authentic way! Interact with those we disagree with, and practice understanding them on a more deeper level, so they can understand us. And we can always learn something from others, even if they're socialists or globalists!

So nice job Rand. Way to bring a genuinely principled approach to politics in Washington. I am very proud that you are representing us in Congress. With your leadership, the United States of America will once again have a political culture and system comprised of discourse that entails truly respect, cooperation, and civility.

So please, take off your blinders (once again), SUPPORT RAND, and let's make American the country that we know it can be.

Rand is a sane voice in Washington

and he stands by the Constitution. He speaks honestly and from the heart. He is NOT a globalist or imperialist doing the bidding of the BANKERS. He is not a war monger.

I support Ron and Rand Paul and anyone else who is a sane voice in these dark days of deception and criminality on the part of those trying to rule the world; those seeking power and control over the people of the world by any means that works, including death and destruction near and far.

That is impossible.

Rand is in over his head. Grow up and be your own leader. Rand has already revealed his neocon tendency/support. WE win when we turn our backs on individuals that violate our principals. WE lose when we just shrug and embrace guys like Rand because we WISH they represented what we want.

I will see what Rand does as he goes along

and I support anyone who is honest, promotes freedom, and not one of those seeking his own egotistical gain.

No matter who comes to power I look after myself and family. I am not looking for a hero or savior. This corrupt world government is doomed to fall, and in its wake we need some honest people with high ideals.

Give me a break.

Rand will change nothing. He is simply surviving. WE live in a broken system. Deal with it. Ron Paul didn't even speak at the GOP convention after WE spent years supporting him at a level rarely seen in politics. Rand is now a SLAVE to the GOP political system. STOP following a slave, turn your back, and DO something original.

you know

I see this same psuedo-stance repeated over and over. Instead of criticizing other people for their support of someone working within the system, how about YOU offer up something YOU'VE done to fulfill the ideas your purporting and suggestions for others. Until then stop being a dick let the free market of ideas decide how people should invest their time and money.

says the good little slave, Verrater.

good boy, now go bow at Rand's feet.

If all you have is ad hominem

You've already lost the argument.

and the fact that Rand abandoned his father during Ron's

presidential run to campaign for Romney. What a joke. Slaves, slaves, slaves.

deacon's picture

your implication

of rand abandoning RP for romney implies RP is ignorant,senile
and just didn't know what he was doing
this does not compute,you know seeing RP is about the smartest,wisest man i have had the opportunity to meet
and here we wanted RP for prez,and he can't even take care of his own house
deacon

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

exactly

A great many people got shot down after the filibuster.
There will always be some people though, who just can't accept they were wrong.

Said it already..

Thanks for reiterating what I said here:
http://www.dailypaul.com/283226/rand-paul-libertys-ally
Glad to see that this thread is getting more comments and votes than mine did. We all need to understand what Dr. Paul has said so many times about working with coalitions. We don't have to agree 100% with people to work with them towards liberty. Rand is right up there at the head of the fight for liberty and needs us to stop nit-picking and give him our support...

Beware the cult of "government"...

Awesome!

Glad there are many of us seeing things clearly!

I am Ron Paul

I stand with Rand.

Rand is the closest thing to Ron that the GOP will accept. A Ron Paul clone would get just about as far as Ron got. With an all or nothing attitude, nothing is exactly what we'll get. Rand is not a final destination but he's one hell of a first step.
Rand Paul 2016

Who hasn't

put their foot in their mouth?

Rand really does seem to be one of the last few decent men left in Washington, who is fighting for us. I would tend to cut him some slack, at least until horns actually sprout from his head.

If he's heading the same way I'm going, I'll be behind him. ;)

Just open the box and see

Those who criticize Rand

Just enjoy the attention. Dont feed them anything. They want to be thought of as pure libertarians, and claim some highground.

Very low. Very pathetic

Could you be any more biased, JoeMO?

Making sweeping statements about 'those who criticize Rand' as just enjoying 'the attention' and being 'Very low. Very pathetic.' is not only disparaging but downright scary. Your prejudice as well as your promotion of follow-the-leader is the antithesis of everything liberty and Ron Paul stands for.

Check my DP profile: I rarely post and do not seek attention, nor do I desire to be 'fed'. And I do not 'Stand with Rand'. There are many shades within the libertarian camp and your intolerance of that fact is more suited to forums where those differences are prohibited.

The only thing low and pathetic here is collectively bashing those who choose to think for themselves.

Im tired of arguing with you people

The man has filibustered for hours, stood up and made liberterianism mainstream. Yet you people who have watched him from the beginning add to the same detracting voice that the main stream media has contrived. You are part of the problem. It annoys me to no end, because its all about you. Its not about the end goal. its not about liberty. its not about winning. its about your little soap box.

and no matter what we pro-rand people do you will never be convinced, because you actually enjoy the detraction. this is all you have ever known.

"choose to think for themselves" oh look at that you thought for yourself. let me get you a ribbon. guess what we all thought for ourselves to get this far, and now its time to willfully stop being such ivory tower purists and start winning some damn elections. If you want to tell me the man is for violating your rights show me his damn voting record. you are fools. you are overreacting and you know it. you love it. you feed off of it.

There is a deep misconception here, I think.

I do not want Rand to govern me. No one looks out for my best interests but me, and that is as it should be. I am a really good person, constantly reminding my heart to "choose love" over and over, even when I am standing in a shitstorm of fear... And yet, I do not deserve to rule over anyone else. I am not sitting around waiting for a "better" candidate, I am waiting for people to embrace self governance, it is their birthright. Rand's "compromises" are exactly why I feel self governance is the only moral choice. Unless and until Nystrom makes this site "for Rand supporters only" I will try to get the lovers of liberty to continue to grow toward true liberty - it is ALWAYS a DIY project, I cannot secure your liberty, you cannot secure mine, and Rand cannot secure it for either of us.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Couldn't agree more.

Couldn't agree more. Libertarians' biggest problem is self-cannibalism. I don't, and nor does Rand, claim that Rand is a 100% libertarian, but he's _pretty damn good_ for where he is, and it's a bit foolish to disagree. He is virtually, single-handedly, transforming the Republican party into a party that actually respects, honors, and follows the Constitution. Isn't that the one, primary objective we should all be able to agree on? The Constitution?

I judge a man more by his actions than his words. Ron isn't exactly a wordsmith himself, so I will give Rand the benefit of the doubt when isn't 100% clear, 100% of the time. We KNOW what his beliefs are.

I stand with Rand

But, he does need to stop making goofy analogies "robbers and drones" these are unnecessary and do nothing but hurt him in some peoples eyes. All he should be saying about drones in the US is that they should be UN-armed and require a search warrant for a specific suspect for a specific duration of time. That is reasonable and acceptable to most libertarians, liberals and conservatives.

The bold effort the present bank had made to control the government ... are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it-Andrew Jackson

I agree... 1000 thumbs up!

I agree... 1000 thumbs up! Rand is and always will be straight from the Paul family tree of liberty and freedom.

But the New World Order gang of nutters that populates this site will try to get you to believe the opposite is true....

Is it just me...

...or all of the hardcore Rand fans unconditional in their support. I don't understand why you never tell us what's so great about what Rand is doing in DC, you just say that he's great and anyone who dares question his actions is a "nutter". I find this utterly repulsive, especially because those of us who have been critical of Rand Paul can tell you exactly why we are, yet you can't tell us why you're gonna "Stand With Rand"... no matter what! This reminds me of the people who say America is always right.

Dearest Tard, The answers you

Dearest Tard,

The answers you seek are everywhere. It's there for you to see if you open your pea brain. But go ahead, keep bashing this movement and stepping on it every chance you get. You have every right as an individual to voice your utterly stupid opinion. I support your lack of intelligence... you make it easy for others to become successful.

Nutters...

Thanks...

I like Rand too.

He irritates me sometimes... but those are only a few issues. Overall I think he is a great voice of liberty in Congress.

He has one major obstacle in his way though... same for all other "liberty candidates" who plan on running for the Puppet Command Post that is the Oval Office. That obstacle is "The Powers that Be".

I can't see the String Pullers allowing someone of our caliber into the Oval Office. They will lie, cheat, and steal away as many votes as they can. They will rig the voting machines. They will even stoop so low as to KILL US in a false flag type of event, just to change the public narrative in their favor.

Let's say that Rand or Amash or some other liberty candidate DOES win a national election for the Presidency. What fail-safes will be in place to prevent another JFK event?

If Rand wants to win, a lot needs to happen between now and 2016. The Mainstream Media needs to become IRRELEVENT. More people need to "wake up" to the realities of a "New World Order" and the Shadow Government that pushes the NWO agenda. Rand will need a running-mate that is not in the Old Guard of establishment hacks, so they can't just off him and let a sock-puppet take the reins. Ultimately, people have to WANT it, and not be arm-chair patriots. Grassroots activism needs to step up to the plate, even more than they did in 2012, and TAKE CONTROL OF THEIR LOCAL PARTIES AND COMMITTEES. In order for this to work, the r3VOLution must be bottom-up, not top-down.

I agree

Rand Paul's gotta be courageous. And honestly, despite the establishment being as established as it is, we gotta do what we gotta do. I think we've had good practice so far in 2008, 2010, and 2012.
