RNC Speech: Rand Paul gives fiery speech to RNC crowd

I didn’t get to watch the entire speech, but what I did see was pretty exciting. Not to mention a few standing ovations.

    He is FAR better than (Then? hehe) his old man!

    • I’m almost thinking he was switched at birth, but there is no evidence to support that. Yay, that makes me a member of the MSM!

      • Gregory Derrickson

        Have you gotton an e-mail from MSLSD yet? Ed Schultz perhaps? Hehe.

    • Devon Bessemer

      Actually, most of their views are the same. They both believe in more trade and less wars overseas, they both believe in never stripping our freedoms for security, they both believe in cutting spending across the board, they both believe in auditing the federal reserve, and they both believe strongly in the founding documents.

      • Gregory Derrickson

        Yeah but they don’t both deny the threat of radical Islam like “Dr. Paul” does. AND Ron Paul hasn’t endorsed Romney.

        • Devon Bessemer

          Actually, Rand does not believe in invading foreign nations. There is no justification for invading an entire country because of a few radicals. That would be the same as saying it is okay for Russia to invade us because a few of our citizens went over there and attacked people. Radical islam is 0.1% of the population of the middle east..

  • too bad his dad is a neo-nazi kook… I liked his speech

    • jdbaird

      I think people need to read at least one of Ron Paul’s books before they hate him. He cares more about this country than most in the Republican party ever will. He believes in individual liberty, private property rights and limited government which are the base principles of our Founders. I disagree with him on some things, but he’s still a patriot. I don’t know if he’s refusing to endorse Mitt Romney because he’s standing on principle or if he’s egotistical and wants to see how many votes he gets, I’d like to believe the former. Anyway, he’s more of a patriot than John Boehner will ever be.

      • dontdrinkthecoolaid

        Could not agree with you more. The haters need to read at least one of his books. I thoroughly enjoyed “End The Fed”.

        • jdbaird

          Great book, I really liked it too.

    • NCHokie02

      how is Ron Paul a “neo-nazi”? you sound like some liberal hack mouthing off insults that have no merit. I mean I don’t agree with Ron Paul on some issues, mostly foreign policy, but I think he is the furthest thing from a “nazi”. I agree with jdbaird below.

    • Devon Bessemer

      A neo-nazi? Where are your facts? The only thing I can think of is that he doesn’t want to invade Iran with Israel? If not wanting to invade foreign countries makes you prejudice then something is wrong with our society. In fact if you look at earlier history, Ron Paul standed alone and defended Israel’s right to govern and decide policies for themselves. Ron Paul stands with his convictions, meaning he has always believed that it is not America’s role to police the world and invade foreign nations, but more so to trade with nations and build up our economy like we did prior to WWII.

  • Rand is like Mark Levin he has such a great understanding of the US Constitution…I love his attack on Obamacare!! He was excellent about BUILDING A BUSINESS and the AMERICAN DREAM!! Excellent Rand!! Made me proud to be an American!

    • T4Ut

      Agreed! What a great speech!

      “The Whole Damned thing is UNCONSTITUTIONAL” – awesome

      I also liked the intro music.

  • anyonebutbarry2012

    thank goodness he isn’t like ron paul his dad. he did well. i like rand paul.

    • Devon Bessemer

      Lol. His views are practically the same as his dad. Where do you get your information about Ron Paul from? It is really sad to see that noone sees the vast similarities between these two. The only major difference is Rand is a better speaker.

  • Great reference to Ronald Reagan….LOVE IT!! Rand truly did a fantastic job detailing the path to success through liberty, dreaming and hard work!

  • tvlgds

    I sure do like him – WAY better than his father!

  • You guys are funny. Rand really has hardly been different than his Dad. He is just more politically savvy. This is coming from a guy who likes both pretty well.

    • Then that is sad to know he is lying

    • NCHokie02

      I’ve always thought that if Ron Paul cooled off with bring everyone stationed around the world home tomorrow talk and focused on domestic issues and then something to the tune of “we need to take a serious look at where we have ourselves committed around the world and see where we can scale back” he would have done way better. But he always just flies off the handle about how no other country is really a threat and yadda yadda yadda. It makes him sound naive. If he would have said something like I did above I think a lot more people would support him because I don’t know anyone that doesn’t like his domestic policies.

      • I think as time goes by, Rand will promote a very similar message, but in a more tactful way than his father.

  • It is funny that he bought up Reagan. His father hated Reagan.

    • keyesforpres

      LOL..that’s right!

    • Ron Paul loved Ronald Reagan’s ideals that he ran on in both 1976 and 1980. Ron Paul just didn’t like Pres. Reagan’s deficit spending which was directly opposed to the idea that government was the problem and not the solution.

    • No, his father did not hate Reagan. Reagan campaigned for Ron Paul in his early Congressional days, after Paul had been one of only four members of Congress to support Reagan in ’76. Paul was later disappointed when Reagan’s record as POTUS did not match his rhetoric, particularly on matters of fiscal responsibility (money supply doubled, national debt tripled, taxes were increased substantially) and failing to control the growth of government (didn’t shutter the Dept. of Education and Energy as he had promised).

    Another wonderful speech. Good stuff! “Success is not based on who you were but what you did.”

    I never mentioned going into other countries. But since you’ve thrown me that, I’ll tell you this. Your philosophy on Radical Islam is so ridiculous that if Osama Bin Laden were alive he would sent you a friend request on facebook. Lets start with your joke about “0.1%” radical islam in the middle east…..ummmm……that doesn’t matter really. Really? Saudi Arabia? We all know they were from Afghanistan. What a joke.
