The Truth About Rand Paul

From the Daily Paul

With the Recent Controversy about Rand Paul from members of the libertarian community. I thought this 1st hand account of Rand Paul's attitude and integrity was relevant. Here's an excerpt.

During these months, over several frustrated phone conversations with Chad in San Diego, Matt Collins here in Middle Tennessee, and Rand Paul's unofficial manager at the time (now his spokesperson), Chris Hightower- an amazing picture emerged: Rand Paul didn't really want it! He was too humble, too conservative, too focused on his family and his business practice. The notion of Rand Paul as some ambitious opportunist trading on his father's name for personal benefit is a pure fiction, and I can tell you so with 100% certainty as a firsthand witness.

Rand Paul has not seized some opportunity for personal gain- history and opportunity have seized him! I cannot properly articulate how many agonized conversations I had with activists here in Tennessee and Kentucky about how perfect this opportunity was to put a true Constitutionalist in the US Senate, and how frustratingly reluctant Rand was to seize that opportunity. In the end, with the patient goading and persuading of Rand's associates and the grassroots community, and with the impelling call of duty to his country, Rand relented and decided to make a bid for US Senate because his country and commonwealth needed him.
Read the Rest

There you have it. Rand Paul is making a sacrifice to run for Senate. He's not a career politician. I think his integrity speaks for itself.

Help the Club for Growth endorse Rand Paul

From the Daily Paul:
I have been studying non stop about how to help get a good candidate elected as a fiscal conservative and I have found out that the true anti establishment yet powerhouse is the US Club For Growth (aka Club for 'economic' Growth)! They put more than $1,000,000.00 per candidate at least and they run their own adds supporting the candidate and then run adds slamming the competitor.

I just got off the phone with them (yes I joined) and they said that they are almost ready to make a decision, but before they make a decision they want to see what the people want. They said they have a few people calling to join for Greyson, but more people called for Paul. Ok, they said the more people call in for the Paul, the more likely they will make a selection. Club For Growth will also have national fundraisers all over the country for Paul. If you think the Money Bomb will help Rand, well this will be the full push to office.

PLEASE CALL CLUB FOR GROWTH, TELL THEM YOU WANT TO JOIN SOLELY TO SUPPORT RAND PAUL!!! CALL THEM ASAP BECAUSE THEY ARE CLOSE TO MAKING A DECISION AND IF CLUB FOR GROWTH SELECTS GRAYSON, WE ARE NEAR FINISHED!!! PLEASE!!!!!!!!

Of course the poster forget to include contact information for the Club for Growth.

http://www.clubforgrowth.org/contact/?id=39 (<- For e-mail) (Copy and paste into your browser.) .

Club for Growth Hours of Operation: 9am - 6pm EST weekdays; closed weekends
Phone: 202-955-5500
Fax: 202-955-9466

Organizations like this primarily care about increasing their membership. So if they hear from a lot of enthusiastic people encouraging them to support Rand Paul, supporting Rand Paul is an indication that they might get more members by supporting him then by not supporting him. Also mention Rand Paul's taxpayer group Take Back Kentucky

PS Don't forget to keep talking to Senate Conservatives too.
