*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.

No question

but give him our love and tell him to keep up the good work! Have a great time!

my question

Would you appoint Judge Andrew Napolitano to SCOTUS?

Bad idea

Napolitano is a polarizing figure. There's little upside and big potential downside to Paul showing his cards on this question. Don't ask it.

"Know what you know, know what you don't know, and understand and appreciate the distinction."


If Rand doesn't want to answer a question, he won't.

He doesn't show his cards until the right time.

Would you support bringing the troops home immediately?

And ending the so-called War on Terror?

not the best question but...

Why did we have to have a constitutional amendment to make alcohol illegal?

Shouldn't the argument in favor of the NSA spying be for passing a constitutional amendment to invalidate the fourth? How is this ignored and how could it be denied without an open admission that the Constitution just isn't relevant anymore?

Check out http://ronpaulforums.com for activism and news.

Will he endorse Greg Brannon?

Will he endorse Greg Brannon for US Senate in North Carolina?

Will he

help to end the WAR ON DRUGS?
If yes, will we decriminalize marijuana or tax it?

Ron brought the Liberty movement together, Rand is expanding the crap out of it! :)

I'm not sure if you are allowed

But if you can take video there of his question and answers that would be sweet. I'll publish any you ask from the Daily Paul over on my site.

*Advancing the Ideas of Liberty Daily*

I'll ask the Scott County GOP Chair

I only have an iPhone for a video recorder, would that be okay?

"It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a rEVOLution before tomorrow morning." - Henry Ford

I asked.

The GOP Chair said that this (the private luncheon) is supposed to be a casual atmosphere, so no videos allowed. This is so he'll open up even moreso. However, videos would be allowed during the public part of the luncheon.

My question for Rand is this...

Rand, why do you believe that the government should deny the rights of two consenting adults to enter into a private contract?

How can you claim to support liberty at the same time you deny people of it?

I agree

I would also ask this question. I know that Rand is much more relaxed than many in the GOP and other opponents of marriage equality, however, he still argues against legalized gay marriage, in principle. He will not loose my support over this as he agrees that it should be left to the states and want's to abolish the IRS anyway and would presumably enforce contracts. However, Ron's position on this issue is much better and is consistent with my understanding of liberty. If he agrees with his father, that government should not be involved with marriage, then why doesn't he say so? Is he just pandering?

"When I say liberty I do not simply mean what is referred to as 'free enterprise.' I mean liberty of the individual to think his own thoughts and live his own life as he desires to think and to live..." - Robert A. Taft

the downvotes goes to show how anti-gay this website really is

you people need help. you all want one set of rules for one group and another set of rules for the rest. disgusting

He doesn't. He's said that

He doesn't. He's said that the government should enforce contracts between adults.

but in his book he is ok

with some contracts being "more valid" than others.

Prove it

Cite, please.

GOOGLE: RAND , ANTI-GAY and have all the links you want!

btw asking me to cite that is like asking someone to cite that bloomberg is running a "nanny-state"

I googled that...

...and found nothing even remotely anti-gay from Rand.

What is your problem?


Ummm, ok! Whatever you say!!!!!

We've all noticed...

...that you've not provided one specific cite.

You've got nothing, and you know it.

Black Louisiana State Senator

What does he think about the Black Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory, who switched from Democrats to Republicans? Will he reach out to him or work with him to increase his chances in the black community?

Who should we contact to help with boots on the ground?

I live in southern indiana and have quite a few people looking for ways to spread the enthusiasm of Rand. If we send of team of people to Iowa who do we contact to at least report back to or gather any kind of information or help volunteer at events. Even if we go door knocking we would want to stay organized with someone so we don't cover the same area five times and then other areas not at all. email me at revolution.tshirts@gmail.com

are you going to make another

are you going to make another thread? or just post the replies on this one?

I'll make another thread.

Thanks. I'll do that on July 4th at the latest.

Well, I planned on making another thread, and still can, but thought maybe it'd be better to consolidate on one thread. So what I did was provide an update on this thread.

Rand, Why support and

Rand, Why support and introduce Hemp legislation in Kentucky but totally disregard cannabis, in which is the same exact plant?

fireant's picture

Will he support repeal of the 16th and 17th amendments,

and return to Constitutional taxation? (NO form of direct taxation unless apportioned among the States)

Undo what Wilson did

Reconcile the differences between Ron and Rand?

What specific positions does he differ on than his father and why?


Rand, do you use Jheri-curl?


is that a toupe?
