I just got back from a Rand Paul speaking event in Franklin, TNSubmitted by JoeMO on Sun, 07/28/2013 - 23:37
He was great. He recieved two extended standing ovations to a crowd of well-informed conservatives, and a packed house. Marsha Blackburn was also there, along with the State Senator, Jack Johnson, the host. Both seemed to be riding the coatails of Rand and Im not sure if Blackburn actually supports his policies, but they love him because he is a cash cow. the place was packed, which is significant chunk of change at 50 dollars a pop.
I had heard many of his speaking points before but everyone in the audience, and my dad especially enjoyed his talk. He was funny. it reminds me of a stand up comedy routine of memorizing lines, unlike his father who gave a completely different off-the-cuff speech every time he spoke. But Rand comes off as more of a social conservative and that really appeals to this constiuency(spelt wrong lol) Rand harped on respecting the 4th amendment and being more libertarian (though the word never said) to get more young people.
Idk how he does so many speeches, he must be in high demand for the crowd, and money he draws.
we got ourselves a president in 2016.
