*UPDATE and REPORT* Going to private round table discussion with Rand Paul.

**UPDATE** My Report on Private Meeting with Rand. **

Here's pic of me and Rand.

See my post below dated 7/4/13. The gist is that I asked if Rand (or somebody from his campaign) would answer ALL your questions here at this very post. He quickly agreed, and said he'd like to make that happen, and maybe even do a special web event with the Daily Paul. Due to time constraints, I was able to ask only one question and you can see his response below (I think it's on the second to last page). My reply is date 7/4.

Original Post:

I've paid some money to attend a July 3rd private luncheon with Rand Paul here in Scott County (Georgetown), KY. I'll be one of 20 people. We are able to ask Rand any questions we'd like.

If anybody wants a question asked, please let me know, and I'll plan on asking him directly. And I will definitely mention the Daily Paul.

I've been coming to the DP for 5 years, 5 months (at least), and this is my first post.

If you have any question you're itching to ask Rand, here's your chance.

That q has to be modified

He had already promised to endorse the GOP candidate whoever that was, in order to become a Senator in the first place.

Why did you endorse Romney DURING the Texas convention less than 24 hours after your father had made one of his best speeches rousing the troops?

Why didn't you wait until all the State Conventions were over and the delegate counts could not be affected?

Why did you endorse Romney on Hannity of all places?
Why not somewhere a bit more sympathetic like Cavuto?

"In the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all -- security, comfort, and freedom. When ... the freedom they wished for was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free."

Here is one:

Why do you see the need to support Israel over other countries? Israel spies on everything we do, steals our technology, nuclear blackmails us , carried out a false flag attack on the USS Liberty, seemed to be at least partially culpable for 9/11 attacks, and has an incredible, most often malevolent, influence on the US government. His stated reasons for not supporting many Arab countries is that a small percentage of their masses, shown on US State media, holler "Death to America".

The conflation of any country's masses with their power structure is naive at best.

If these people are actually doing this, does that not show they have freedom of speech? And if an Arab country's soldiers came to the US, destroyed most of our infrastructure, raided all our homes late at night, raped our women, galloped around the streets on horseback donning shalwar kameez, checkered scarfs, and Kalashnikovs, forced the women to cover their heads, banned music, declared us terrorists if we fought back, tortured us for minor acts of rebellion, and murdered 1/13th of our populations, all in the name of converting us to what they deem as the proper way to live, would we not at least think "Death to this Arab Country"?

Long question, I know. It has me puzzled though. Is Rand this ignorant or that much of a player? I will not support Rand because of his foreign policy.

TYRE the coopter for Mitch MCCONNEL

Jessie Bentons hero Tyre. Tyre the one who make a deal with the PAUL family to trade a loosing RP presidental run for a coopted puppet senate position for son Rand.

Thats what it appears to be. There is not just smoke this is a fire.


Assuming you've been given a

Assuming you've been given a TEMPORARY pass on the civil rights act issue that came up with Rachel Maddow, how do you plan to dispense with it when it inevitably comes up again?

Why do you use faulty exposed

Why do you use faulty exposed studies(lies) to demean marijuana smokers and how do you plan on winning an election demeaning the very majority base you need to win the swing state of colorado!

How can you be so stupid to believe faulty studies on marijuana. Makes me wonder if alcohol killed your IQ Rand Paul.

ps will not be wasting my time or money on people who use lies to demean marijuana smokers who have an IQ higher then Rands obviously.

Ron Paul 2016

The legal status of marijuana

...is my litmus test of any and all candidates. If you think marijuana should be illegal then you don't believe in freedom and liberty...plain and simple.

“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”
- President John F. Kennedy

I am with you

Promoting immediate legalization of marijuana is a necessary, but not a sufficient, condition for me to support someone.

“Although it was the middle of winter, I finally realized that, within me, summer was inextinguishable.” — Albert Camus

samehere, it is a simple yes

samehere, it is a simple yes or no, any answer with a but is considered no in my book. Hold them all accountable on election day especially folks trying to ride the fence or flip flop.

So far Rand is repeating lies on marijuana and brainwashed lies on it. Rand Paul REEFER MADNESS PT 2, how sad it is when rand is sourcing lies!

Ron Paul 2016

Remind me,

What does Rand say about marijuana?

I am Ron Paul

What can or should be done about potential voter fraud....

intimidation, and voter machine 'error'?

Here's One: How Are We Going to Win?

Here's One: How Are We Going to Win? Like.. for real.

Regarding thre NSA scandel...

I would like you to ask Rand if he has "followed the money"

The NSA uses private corporations to perform the actual tasks. Those corporations hire other private corporations as well. Has Rand seen a flow chart showing all the links and how much money is being made by these private companies that work for the NSA?

Some great questions here...

So I won't add another...

But I would ask him to publicly support Ben Swann's Kickstarter campaign, and let him know that when he said this -

“We’ve got to appeal to younger voters, the West Coast, people who view Republicans as in league with crony capitalists and the wealthy, and those who are suspicious of endless foreign interventions, otherwise, we are going to become a niche product for red states.”

That Robin Koerner was already there with a movement to help make it happen - https://www.facebook.com/bluerepublican - http://www.bluerepublican.org/ - http://www.huffingtonpost.com/robin-koerner/ - and that he really aught to make a point of meeting with Robin, and take him along with him when he travels to the blue states if he's serious about winning there....

(Robin has just recently launched State and City chapters for the Blue Republicans, which was the largest coalition to support Ron Paul’s 2012 campaign, and was featured both on Ron Paul’s campaign website and in the wikipedia article about the Ron Paul 2012 campaign.)

Enjoy the luncheon!

Here's a Question: How will

Here's a Question:

How will you stand up to the secret powers that exist that are likely blackmailing Obama in order to have Obama completely go against what he ran on and also so that you don't end up like JFK?

My 2nd Question would be this...

To win the Presidency you have to promise the poor more free stuff, you have to promise illegal aliens some type of amnesty, and you have to promise gays equal rights.....as the Democrats have figured out...are you prepared to deal with each of these groups to win?

One question...

Does Rand and Ron read the Daily Paul...and if so, how often?

Could you talk about

Could you talk about "National Security" and "Safety of Americans" in terms of Percentages? National Security and Personal Safety from Terror Attacks without NSA and government snooping is at 99.9%. More Americans get killed in bath tub accidents. That sort of thing to keep things in perspective.

SteveMT's picture

On a lighter note:

How far do you ride your bike everyday?
Can you keep up with your father?

SteveMT's picture

Everyone no doubt thinking it, so I might as well ask it:

Should another loser like Romney get the nomination, say Marco Rubio, would Rand endorse him also or would he do the right thing this time and just say no?

New Party

"If the Republican party continues to deliberately minimize you and your influence like they did with Ron Paul, will you be willing to look at a new party to compete and lead a grass roots ground swell to get into office?

Federal Farm Subsidies

Best wishes on the luncheon. I would like to know Rand's thoughts on federal farm subsidies and what he can do to put an end to them. I believe this issue is often overlooked. I believe ending farm subsidies could result in healthier foods, more thoughtful land use, and more careful treatment of the earth. Federal farm subsidies seem completely unnecessary and unbecoming of a free society.

Can you ask him about the nanothermite found in the WTC dust?

title says it all

Crude Warning:

Ask him how Israel's Co¢\< tastes

Sen. Paul, How closely

do/would you adhere to the Austrian School theories on economics? And how do you plan to implement such views into the current, government created, economic environment? (What are your positions on economics, and How will you "fix" the economy?)Specifically, I'd like to know where he stands on the Austrian School. The importance of economic Liberty, in my opinion, is one of the greatest things I learned from Dr.Ron Paul. Would like to know where Rand stands on it....how free should we be?

I'd rather have a bottle in front o' me than a frontal lobotomy

Good Question...

... I think if you go by his suggested reading on his official Senate website, it would give a peak into what his answer would be:


He's got Mises, Hayek, Ron Paul (of course), Rothbard, Tom Woods, and Hazlitt. I think he is a big on Austrian economics.

Ginger or Maryanne?

I have been holding that back for days. Fine go ahead judge me but every male of my generation has been trying to find the ultimate answer ALL OF OUR LIVES. DO YOU KNOW WHAT THAT'S LIKE? HAVING TO LIVE WITH THAT DAY AFTER DAY, YEAR AFTER YEAR?

Why not Eunice Wentworth nee Howell?

She's the one who had it made

I'm sure that is true
