Anyone with a time machine to get Ron Paul back in the race... Rand is just not his father... I miss the frankness of Ron...

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

Did you see what Rep. King said after this?

“I totally disagree with what Sen. Rand Paul says,” King said on “Fox News Sunday.” “That was just a grab bag of misinformation and distortion.”

If Paul was right and “billions of phone calls” were being collected, the Republican congressman from New York said, then the nearly 3,000 documented abuses of the records each year were miniscule.

“If you have a 99.99 percent batting average, that’s better than most media people do, most politicians do,” King said. “I have tremendous respect for Gen. [Keith] Alexander and the whole NSA. This whole tone of snooping and spying we use, I think it’s horrible. I think it’s really a smear and a slander of good, patriotic Americans.”

Rand Paul: On Record...

Sorry to break up this 'love-fest'.
Rand Paul supported Mitt Romney, the creator of 'Romneycare', the blueprint that Obama stated was 'his model' of 'Obamacare'. In case you forgot:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3c5odNzKVbk

Regarding 'warrantless' things, and Constitutional issues, Rand is on record as stating that the death sentence regarding American citizens on American soil is perfectly all right (bypassing the right to a trial by a jury of peers) employing the use of DRONES. This is BEFORE his famous 'filibuster':
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CBCzI3Rsq8w

HE HAS FAILED TO ANSWER FOR EITHER OF THESE STATEMENTS.
Instead, the sheep over here post 'glowing reviews' about what he is stating 'NOW'. Your memories are quite short.

Yeah, I might get down-voted, or even kicked off this forum, for reporting and posting these videos.
Would you like to see what his REAL opinion is, regarding NSA spying?

Is this all you got?

By all means, criticize Rand when warranted, but as to your two cases above:

1) Rand endorsed Romney OVER OBAMA (I could dig up a quote or two from Ron stating Romney > Obama), and did so for the primetime convention speaking slot and to grease the skids for '16.

2) You're distorting, of course. Rand was clearly referring to imminent threat.

You lose credibility with comments like this.

NSA, Obamacare..

being that MSM has become the voice of government and the GOP has passed by resolution to boycott CNN and MSNBC, that leaves Rand with fewer voices for interveiw opportunity

So Fox comes out with a long interveiw, over 15 minutes, and the questions being asked are complicated, as if they are traps..

Rand refers to the constitution on NSA, and he points out that there is no options.. there are no courts, and any questions, there is no oversite, so all anyone can do is accept what NSA and the majority in Gov supporting it.. Rand says there should be a way to question it, but since the govt has no way to do this, who would?

On Obamacare, he explains that ACA destroyed health care with mandates, again, there is no recourse.

On Egypt, Fox is not saying "Israel", but pointing out that the arms to Egypt are supportive for Israel.. and Fox defends Obama's arming Egypt, and they are trying to force Rand into saying foreign aid is good "for Israel".. and as usual, Rand points out the money goes to dictator's perks, not to the people... Rand says it's WEAKNESS on American side.. that's going to get him some hostility..

On Christy, it's pretty apparent we are being set up for a Clinton/ Christy election (should have fewer voter turnout than ever) brings up Ron Paul, because Rand won't say anything bad, now that Ron Paul is OUT, they are using his talking poiints against Rand, as Ron Paul said, "Christy offers nothing".. Rand says party is big enough for both of us.. big enough for Libertarians.. NORTH GOP IS EMPTY???? That's not what DPs who didn't join the GOP said.. Hmmmm

So this interveiw was for the globalists in government to find ways to defeat Rand. Rand is good, and why they don't like him.. He needs help, but it seems that since so many are buying into the globalists agenda with BS arguments about "statism" and not voting and not participating.. Rand and those who GET it are going to be in for a rough road. Of course those who didn't help will be the first to blame. Each man for himself is great until the wolves come knocking at the door.

One word

Slick.

That's how he handled the question, "Do you agree with your father that Christie offers nothing?"

Rand (in effect): "He offers something - bigger government."

Good One...

Excelsior!
