"We have to get back to some

"We have to get back to some common sense with these things."

51 minutes in...I love when that happens.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

Just over 41 minutes in, this

Just over 41 minutes in, this speech is like almost everything I've ever wanted to hear come out of a politician's mouth about the current state of affairs in America today. It's like somebody gave Rand a free pass and said go ahead, say anything you want to for an hour.

Music to my ears, like an opera of an hour long quote, or reading a great book on the couch.

Thomas Paine's, "Common Sense," comes to mind.

Take a good look at the Rand Paul still picture in emalvini's video link at the top of the page.

Is it just me, or does Rand Paul look a lot like a young Ronald Reagan? Just look at the hair!

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

I'm only a few minutes in...

...but it's excellent so far.

He's getting better and better as a speaker.

Rand's speech gets better and better.

He hits every government hypocrisy possible in this one-hour speech.

Uhh that was pretty epic

in a very matter of fact way.

An hour well spent! Thanks for posting!

Bump for weekend viewers

Thanks for this and all your postings emalvini.

Edit: I thought this had gotten lost and I was pumping new life to it,
now I see it on the front page. Cool.

Irony, reality, hypocrisy: Rand is speaking to an empty chamber.

"The president believes that he is more of a monarch than a president."
That's the manifestation of brutal honesty.

Historically, Rand is treading on very thin ice. This is 100% truth. When someone exposes this kind of hypocrisy, which is blatant, pervasive, and omnipresent, the messenger is the one who loses. Rand is 100% correct. The government is 100% wrong. When people speak this kind of truth, bad things happen to those people. I worry a lot.

I cant stand what an

I cant stand what an establishment-supporting republican cheerleading speech this was. I had to turn it off after about 8 min. Wailing on and on about how bad dems are and how they change the rules. More and more bs. both parties are completely corrupt, worthless hopeless.

both parties are completely corrupt

Ditto

Nobody is going to listen to this gentleman

He has no money to give the voters.
Nor does he command the government forces of the IRS or DHS.
Only Caesar Obama has these powers.
Hail Caesar!

Good One Barracuda!

You're the best! A real 'American Patriot' pal!

This is the single most

This is the single most important topic in the liberty movement and in all of modern times IMO. When the free market is allowed to operate, wealth is created, citizens become more powerful, more free, and have better self esteem, and they won't put up with crap from the government that they would when they are poor and scared and dependent. Most problems we are seeing is a result of the government taking most of our money to make us powerless and dependent. They want control over us and have to keep us weak to do so.

This is the kind of thing I always wished Ron Paul would go deep into, just like this, giving examples.

Nitpickers be damned

An historic speech on the Senate floor

No, I'm not a Rand cheerleader.

Rand gives a good

speech, but in order to except most of what he states, one must believe the GOP is better than the Dems, which is the difference between Coke and Pepsi. And, to the point about judges, all I got to say is Roberts, Roberts, Roberts! If Roberts didn't change Obamacare to a tax, and stand with the liberals it wouldn't exist today. The debt has increased $3 trillion dollars voted through by the GOP controlled House. Obama may use EO to do certain things, but the House has to appropriate money for the government! If Rand really wanted to do something to change Washington, he would state he is still a member of the GOP, but I'm seperating myself from the Corporate Collective majority in my party, as well as those in majoritiy of the Democratic party. Who wants to join me?????

Great speech but....

Everything Rand said was right on target and I applaud him for his knowledge, honesty, and openess about the issues he addressed, but sadly nothing is going to change for the good but rather continue to go downhill.

The corruption within our government is far too deep to turn around!

I believe only Almighty God can turn this nation around, but He has given us up to ourselves because of the wickedness that permeates this entire land and earth as He said He would do to all the nations that forget Him.

This entire world is falling apart and just who is there that can stop this great fall? Politicians? Ha!

Open your eyes to the truth.

There is only one place to look now and that is up!

" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

Educational Speach. Love the constitution LISTEN TO THIS SPEACH

Bravo Rand!

:)

Is there a more liberty minded senator?

"You only live free if your willing to die free."

One of the Best Rand Paul Speeches, EVER!
