Rand isn't in this, but here's a pretty cool video we compiled from the rally: http://www.wealthdaily.com/articles/tea-party-audit-the-irs-...

"We didn't attack them, they attacked us"

Why did you have to say that Rand?

"All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent."
Thomas Jefferson

I thought the exact same thing!

But then thought of the audience. That's some good red meat for those people. But you're right. Why even say it?

Red meat is right.

Red meat is right. Stinger44, did you notice how this seemed like a campaign speech too? He sounds like a man running for president of the United States.

Why say it?

Because he's running for president of the United States. I'm not surprised by this rhetoric, kind of expected this kind of bs.

I think Rand meant to say, "They attacked us with box cutters, we didn't attack them."


Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

Yes, sure did sound like a campaign speech.

And Rand is a much better "politician" than his dad. Rand appears to be able to tailor his message to the audience. Ron just basically said the same thing regardless of the crowd in front of him. I've heard Ron talk about the 1953 coup in Iran orchestrated by the CIA, so I assume Rand knows about it. (see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oaRmeTV4pi4) Yet he plays the "We were innocent!" card for these Tea Party members. Most people here on the DP know better. We've been causing trouble in the Middle East for at least 60 years!

Thanks for the video. I wish

Thanks for the video. I wish they gave Rand more time to speak.
