We're on our way!
Love how the YouTube is entitled, "RAND SAYS WE SHOULD AUDIT THE PENTAGON". Great opening speach by Rep Mulvaney R-SC, SC State Farmer's Market.
Rand got a standing ovation to start.
Rand hets his news from Jimmy Kimmel. Rand's jokes are funnier than Emalvini's BOOM
He tells how Obama stops WH self guilded tours the same week he sends F-16s and tanks to Egypt.
WE SHOULD AUDIT THE PENTAGON.. I LOVE Rand! He's RIGHT ON!!!
1.8 million for s study on roll up beef jerky.
4 trillion dollar Pentagon budget.. studies for monkeys on meth..
Love how he quote Patrick Henry, "Give me Liberty of gove me death."
Ron has much to be very proud with Rand Paul.. soon to be president Rand Paul.
The "rEVOLution" has been going on for a while. For folks that have been part of it since 2006, you've got to see Ron stand out and rally against the system, you got to see and donate to Ron's son make a run at the Senate, and what a fun time that was: a Paul in each house.
Then Rand Paul throws the gauntlet down and says to Washington, "I'm going to be a big deal, you're going to have to deal with me, I'm going to be a power player and I am running for president in 2016."
Since then he has kicked so much ass all around that Senate. You don't have to agree with everything he does but he's not handcuffed by polling, he is causing controversy. Most people running for president are kissing all kinds of ass. Rand is, while guns a blazing, making more enemies and picking up more friends. We could use more like him.
However, I'm still waiting for him to say the name "Ron Paul" in public.
i predict more distancing
In order to be competitive three years from now, Rand knows he needs to vanquish Ron's long shadow.
I hope Rand at least gives Ron Paul a call once a month to talk about Father-Son stuff and maybe even ask for some advice on this or that. This distancing issue is something that I have no feel for. Imagine if your father was Ron Paul? I wouldn't be doing it this way, presidential possibility or not. I couldn't do what Rand is doing.

"I, __________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic."
There is no duration defined in the Oath
then he sheepishly endorsed romney on hannity who had repeatedly dissed his dad in a most ugly way.
when questioned about the bad treatment his dad's supporters were getting at the RNC rand denied any knowledge.
believe me i'd like to forget it too.
rand could redeem himself and become THE peace candidate.
but i wonder if that's even possible after hearing him say:
"I think people want a party that's has a little less aggressive foreign policy"
what the heck does that mean? not drone kill quite as many wedding parties?
"I'd like to thank my father, Dr. Ron Paul." - President Rand Paul
I'm sure there will be more on the campaign trail.
on ron paul's campaign in 2012 who still believes in presidential politics has some kind of crazy faith that is beyond me.
ron paul speaking to packed houses of thousands compared to romney talking to a few hundred really said it all. the establishment, the old boy GOP, MIC and the MSM showed that they will do anything to stop a force for truth like ron paul. they blacked him out, they smeared him, they cheated, lied and swindled him, (and they were not even shy about it!). the status quo will do it again to anyone who has even half the libertarian ideas and integrity.
so do nothing?
hell NO continue to spread the libertarian message of ron paul, education, workshops, local politics, more paulians in congress, the senate, governors. more people are waking up. think LONG term, not this charade they have cooking for 2016 to drain your energy, time and money.
Why can't he do something to excite the base like support defunding the NSA.
He's devolving into JoeBlowGenericRepublican
he wouldn't even sign the letter to clapper.
his flip flopping on pot will kill the youth vote.
he will not get the hispanic vote nor the women's vote.
nor the anti war crowd
he will get the tea party, the religious right, and some of the freedom/libertarian
movement, but certainly not all. maybe half.
not very exciting imo
he might get veep with jeb.
yawn, yawn, yawn.
is following RAND PAUL on "Road to the White House"
Still think we are not making progress?
