Be afraid, Hillary. Be very afraid.


Google is government.


...job, Rand! :) Thanks for standing up against the abuses of the state.

Rand is the man :D

If Rand gets the nomination he can win, just like his dad could.
It is a matter of getting the nomination.
The party is corrupt. It will have to be a landslide.

It's been VERY interesting seeing how Rand is appealing...

to Liberals in some ways. Talking to my democrat mom on the phone a few days ago, she brought up Rand saying that 'some of the things he says make a lot of sense'. But then she was quick to say I shouldn't going around telling people she likes him...Ha!...and she lives on the other side of country from me so who am I going to tell?!


I just got home from this speech

What a great day. The International House was a really nice venue. It was sold out, the place was packed. Everyone was very respectful, no heckling, no protests, and the audience questions were good.

In addition to Rand's several standing ovations, he got a great big laugh out of the audience when he compared the Republican Party to Domino's Pizza's horrible crust. The Republican Party needs new crust, lol.

Now I can't wait to go see Ron Paul on April 9th at the Hayward university!

Multiple home runs. Expect massive increase in trolling.

Standing ovations? Multiple outbursts of spontaneous applause? I'm bracing myself for an onslaught of divisive nonsense from paid operatives and trolls. I hope most of us will be smart enough to realize when agents provocateurs are trying to play us against each other.

Standing ovations at Berkley
This is a great marketing campaign for liberty.
He could do it, he could win the presidency.

I agree
