Rand Paul: “There’s a lot of reasons why I don’t like the U.N., and I think I’d be happy to dissolve it."Submitted by Stonewall Jackson on Thu, 01/15/2015 - 14:53
LITCHFIELD, N.H. – Rand Paul is not a fan of the United Nations, and on a campaign-style swing through New Hampshire on Wednesday, the likely Republican presidential hopeful said that he would support dissolving the international governing body entirely.
Speaking to a room full of gun rights advocates at the Londonderry Fish & Game Club, Paul said that while the concept of having a multinational body to "discuss diplomacy" isn't necessarily a bad one, he objects to the current structure, in which the United States has to foot "a huge chunk" of the U.N.'s bill.
“I dislike paying for something that two-bit Third World countries with no freedom attack us and complain about the United States,” Paul said. “There’s a lot of reasons why I don’t like the U.N., and I think I’d be happy to dissolve it.”
The Kentucky senator’s swing through the first-in-the-nation primary state came a day after The Washington Post reported that Paul has hired a campaign manager for his now all-but certain White House run.
"A federal judge has ruled that the Libertarian Party can proceed with its challenge to a New Hampshire law it claims could prevent its candidates from getting on the ballot."

Rand Paul is running for president and to win the liberty movement needs to be organized. I was thinking people in NH (my state) who intend to support Rand should start to get organized now. This will give Rand Paul an advantage over the other candidates. Would anyone be interested in making a Facebook group or maybe making a specific place where this process can begin? Any ideas?
What do the free staters think about this?
I'm not there but I've heard there is a "riot" that broke out in Keene at the Pumpkin Fest, with the local thugs calling it a "Level 2 Emergency with Mass Casualties??"
Sheesh! Does anyone know what's going on?
Will The Swiss Gold Referendum Pass?
Swiss ballot initiative "Save Our Swiss Gold" is being promoted by the Swiss People’s Party and would require the Swiss Natonal Bank to maintain 20% of its reserves in gold, to repatriate all Swiss gold from abroad and to ban selling any Swiss gold.
Does it have any shot of passing?
New Hampshire: A Hotbed for Liberty
By Shem Kellogg
The United States was once a constitutional republic, and today New Hampshire is on the forefront in the battle to return the U.S. to its original principles of state sovereignty, limited federal government and individual liberty.
The year Thomas Jefferson was elected President, eleven out of sixteen states didn’t have direct popular election for President, and no state had direct election of US senators. The voters chose their state representative, a man whom they personally knew, and he then voted for the upper-level offices.
How many here are familiar with this project?
I have been casually watching for a year or so now.
I recently took my wife to New Hampshire for vacation and we loved it. What a refreshing change from New York State!
Please send Sal Russo and his TPE Bus a little love note about why he has no business coming to NH and endorsing Scott Brown. If he does it here, he may do it in YOUR state.
