I read the comments then I watched the video.
Rand Paul is not Ron Paul, and the bar was set very high, but that does not mean, necessarily, that the bar can't be set higher.
If the problem is such that there is too much power concentrated in the hands of too few people, then the solution is not to find a special, benevolent, dictator to save us from ourselves.
So...I don't follow that stupidity.
End the FED
End the IRS
Bring the Troops Home
Then few people no longer have as much power.
Then, OK, now what does a competitive president do, with less power,compared to a less competitive president?
Problem: Too much power in the hands of too few people.
Solution: Stop paying so much power to those few people and they won't have so much power, and those people who actually produce that power have more power.
Then what are the other problems?
I appreciate Rand Paul's use of the concept of scale, who can think without such devices?
I have to find a scale, a way of measuring, or forget about any sense of accuracy, so I like that, and to make this a little more personal I can offer an experience.
My wife and I paid for a few seats at the Liberty Convention in Nevada not long ago. We were at the hotel eating breakfast. Rand Paul and a couple of big guys in suits sat nearby.
I told my wife that that was Rand Paul.
She said really.
I said yup.
Later during the days of the event I heard Rand Paul, and Ron Paul, speaking, good information, precise information.
I can't get in their shoes, no way, but I can guess.
Rand Paul reported specific cases of federal law enforcers doing very bad things to specific people in Tennessee. Warning those willing to listen,as to how bad things are already. That type of message, from that federal law man, is significant,and not generally heard on any Monopoly Entertainment Television Show hosted by a Piers Morgan Propagandist parading as an Entertainer,or a Wolf Blitzer actor, a good actor, making all the appearances of sincerity.
So what about Rand Paul?
If the current power struggle does not change, at all, then there is no way that Rand Paul will be "elected" as the next president of The Dollar Hegemony. Who counts the votes?
Which votes count?
If Utah, Virginia, and who knows how many other States reestablish their power in opposition to a federal government power that is dictatorial, tyrannical, and criminal, then what?
Is it then more important to make sure the Governor is not a stooge for the criminals?
Friend or Foe?
I saw Rand Paul,in person, and my guess is that he is seriously working for Liberty. That is not entertaining.
