Rand Paul quotes Rush in Lexington

The band, not the talk show host.

And the trees are all kept equal
By hatchet,
And saw ...

Apparently Paul was well received and
. . . took numerous questions from the crowd, addressing issues ranging from foreign policy to abortion. He wove a respect for the Constitution and a commitment to limited federal government through all of his answers.
“It’s not enough to have an ‘R’ by a name. Parties mean nothing unless we imbued them with values,” he said.

When was the last time you heard of a politician taking "numerous questions from the crowd" and then actually answering them all. He's also not afraid to articulate his beliefs and give honest answers on issues that some people might disagree with. In other words, he's honest. He's willing to state what his positions are with-out hedging. Kentuckians, you have a chance to elect an honest statesman for a change.

And this strait shooting isn't just a one-time thing. Here's a video from his recent stop in Shelbyville. You decide.

PS: Regarding his statements about government undermining the free market being the cause of this current mess we're in, the best book on this subject to come out is Meltdown: A Free-Market Look at Why the Stock Market Collapsed, the Economy Tanked, and Government Bailouts Will Make Things Worse by Thomas Woods.

Rand Paul
Trey Grayson


  1. A Little Rand Paul News

  2. Well written post. Dr. Rand Paul is one of the most honest candidates I have encountered and has the task of convincing a jaded public that he actually believes what he says. Too many politicians such as Grayson and McConnell only play pied piper for a position of power (gotta love aliteration).


  3. He's so honest, so anti-government, that he wants to become a paid government employee.... how does that work?

  4. He may be a working physician, but he doesn't know crap about comparative health care. Why is it that every single wealthy capitalist country have some kind of government guaranteed healthcare--are they stupid. Considering their people are healthier and live longer, I'd say they know something that our foolish excuses for leaders don't. Government is not the is the solution.
