*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.

Absolutely

I attract dicks, prefer brains.

How's that working out for you?

Gotta whole lotta Love

Why ask when you don't care? You must be a very lonely person.

Ginger was a heck of a lot

Ginger was a heck of a lot smarter than any of the Miss Americas of today.

To the best Senator in the world,

What do you think of the food situation in America today? Do you think GMO's are bad? What can we do about things like the Farm bill and Monsanto?

Yours Truly,
Dave7 of the DP

I am Ron Paul

Can we sell the NSA Utah Data

Can we sell the NSA Utah Data Center to China or North Korea?

Ask him why we should support McConnell especially in light of

the senior senator's position on the NSA story. Would he consider withdrawing his endorsement if a liberty candidate were to enter the race?

AWESOME! :D

What I would like to know, with the KY hemp bill passing, are there any mills (food, feed, fiber, fuel) being put in place in Kentucky, or are you planning on exporting the hemp? Are there international corportate interests? Are there American corporations investing in KY hemp crops and can you tell us the names?

Mr. Paul...

Are you willing to potentially follow in the steps of JFK and give a general pardon to non-violent drug offenders? And if not...Are you willing to consider a pardon for non-violent marijuana prisoners?

I beg that you ask this question...Ending the War on Drugs is what brought me to Dr. Paul...Bringing me later to being a full blown, albeit, annoying crusader for truth and Liberty...

Bad food, worse weather, please rEVOLution the states so I can bring my family back home!
Rosa Koire for for President!

Thank you

I was supposed to be there tomorrow, but am not able to attend. I do intend to support and campaign for Rand at this point in time. I figure someone will bring Rand up to speed on what the vibe is out here. At this point in time I see nobody else that would represent the liberty movement any better than Rand could. And we all know we don't want yet another Bush in office.
Give him our best.
STAND WITH RAND 2016

RAND PAUL or NOT AT ALL

Ask him not to throw his political career away like Rubio & Ryan

did. Ask him to insist on real and verifiable border security instead.

2 Questions Please...

1. If elected POTUS, would you order all of the troops home from around the world? If not, which ones would you bring home and which ones would you not?

2. Do you believe that Marijuana should be legal? Do you know why/how it was made illegal to begin with?

Thanks!

Ask him how the resolutions impacted society then and how they should impact society now?

Please Represent Yourself

and not the DP

Understood. Thanks.

I'll represent myself but mention the DP and it's positive and valuable influence. That's what I meant, but thanks for helping getting that clear in my mind.

How can you win California, and women, as a pro-life candidate?

Yes, Reagan won in California as a pro-life candidate, but do you think it's possible for a pro-life candidate to win in California in 2016? What about the votes of women? Why and how?

If your answer is by taking a position that the question should be left to the states, how can you frame that so it is not rejected as a strong pro-life position, since that's basically what we had before Roe v. Wade?

THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION HERE!

And Ron Paul has the answer:
“The problem is fundamentally moral, not legal. The Constitution by itself cannot establish the proper moral attitude of a nation. The real change will not be achieved by the politicians, but must come from our moral and religious philosophers.” Ron Paul

Something has changed with Dr. Paul on the abortion issue since he wrote these words. If he returned to this very reasonable view, he would see his support rise among Evangelicals. (and soar with women..my words) He might even get the nomination.
http://godfatherpolitics.com/3184/ron-pauls-anti-abortion-po...

Rand should publicly abandon trying to legislate morality and use his bully pulpit to be an advocate for the unborn by visiting adoption agencies and interviewing adoptive parents.
Start in New Hampshire where the republicans are now trying to pass a 20 week abortion bill & get the state legislators to join him.
Just think of the positive press they’d get & the support from women would be a game changer.
So please Rand, please, listen to your father.
Sorry for yelling there.

yah most important

But only to you. Judge by that amount of upvotes.

Why not emphasize "independent" characteristic?

This is a political marketing question.

Presidential elections are won and lost based on how those who self-identify as "independents" vote. Generally, true Republicans vote red, and true Democrats vote blue, but it's the independents (regardless of their party registration) who can go either way.

Your disagreements on key issues with Republicans like Cheney and McCain can be used to support your claim on the Independent label.
Christie made a lot of political points in this area when he praised Obama for his handling of the hurricane damage in New Jersey. Similarly, how about praising Obama when appropriate? Not too often, but if, for example, he actually makes the right moves at Guantanamo, how about making a big deal out of it?

I realize that this is a post-primary emphasis, but you can't wait until the start of the general to start claiming this, so why not get your claim on the Independent label on the record now? It might make the key difference in the end...

Please explain

why the process of holding a president liable in upholding his oath is subject of lawsuit and petition? It isn't like these unconstitutional actions are being done without knowledge or full attainment of facts, rendering him suspect. These unconstitutional actions are being perpetrated on the live, public stage and we all know the violations are happening with full knowledge...and even if they aren't the president is negligent and complicit in the least by his ignorance considering his position.

Please ask

” Hi Dr. Paul...how would you feel about, instead of a zero-tolerance policy towards children who bite their sandwiches into different shapes, we start a movement for a zero-tolerence policy towards any elected official that engages in any behavior that undermines the Bill of Rights and Constitution?”

Thanks for your consideration.

Joe, excellent question

+1, the best question here that he could actually answer, and could be turned into a campaign ad.

Ha!

Two people down-voted my question...sad sad people.

I hope the post author considers it! :-)

On amnesty bill

How can we make new laws on immigration and border security, fence etc., when we don't follow existing law?

How are new laws going to make a difference when we don't enforce existing law?

Thanks & good luck

Say hi to him for us all. Looking forward to your report.

Thanks!

I'll take pictures and provide a detailed report. It's a thrill to hear from you Michael. Thanks for your comment.

I've updated this thread with my report. And I'll let you know what Rachel, the Deputy State Director says. I just plan on putting her in touch with you, so I'll need your contact info.
