Not a Big Fan of the Old Man, but
Warming-Up to Rand Paul QUICK...

'What America needs is not Robin Hood, but Adam Smith'


Ever since Sen Paul clearly distanced himself from his dad's wackadoodle foreign policy, I've been starting to think this guy's
closer to my own views than what I've been seeing and hearing from Ryan or Rubio -or anybody else- lately...


After enduring the latest Five Year Plan from Dear Leader, we were last night offered enlightened responses from Sen Marco Rubio (for the Republicans) and fellow GOP Senator Dr Rand Paul, who brought a comprehensive indictment of the Obama fiscal-death-spiral (along with a bright, Reaganite alternative vision) delivered specifically on behalf of the TEA Party.

Rubio is a gifted communicator, but it was Rand Paul's message that stole the show imo...


  • For the first time in history, men and women were guaranteed in America a chance to succeed based not on who your parents were, but on your
    own initiative, and desire to work.
  • We're in danger, tho, of forgetting what made us great: the President seems to think the country can continue to borrow $50,000 every second... the President believes if we can just squeeze more money out of those that are working...
    I don't think it'll work.
  • The path we are on is not sustainable, but few in Congress -or in this Administration- seem to recongize that their actions are endangering the prosperity of this great nation...
  • Ronald Reagan said 'Government is not the answer to the problem, government is the problem': tonight, the President told the nation he disagrees-
    President Obama believes government is the solution, more taxes, more debt. 
  •  What the President fails to grasp is that the American system that rewards hard work is what made America so prosperous. What America needs is not Robin Hood, but Adam Smith: in the year we won our independence, Adam Smith described what creates the Wealth of Nations... he described a limited government that largely did not interfere with individuals in their pursuit of happiness.
  • All that we are -and all that we wish to be- is threatened by the notion that you can have 'something for nothing'... that you can have you cake and eat it too, that you can spend a TRILLION DOLLARS a year that you don't have...
  • Congress is debating the wrong things: every debate in Washington is about 'how much to increase spending' a little, or a lot- how much to increase taxes, a little, or a lot... 
  • Few people understand that the sequester -it just slows the rate of growth. Even with the sequester -if it goes through- government will grow $7 TRILLION over the next decade... ONLY in Washington could an increase of $7T be called 'a cut'.
  • Big Government is NOT your friend- Big Government gives you stuff- but keeps you poor.
  • Tonight I urge you to demand a new course: demand Washington change their ways, or they'll be sent home.
  • We absolutely MUST pass a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution: the amendment must include strict spending and tax limitations. Liberals complain that the budget 'can't be balanced', but if we cut just ONE PENNY from each dollar we spend, the budget would be balanced in 6 or 7 years...
