Senator Rand Paul’s CPAC Speech

I’m not gonna tell you what’s in it. If you’re interested you should watch it yourself and make up your own mind.

When I find a transcript I’ll post it here.

Unless President Donald J. Trump pulls a hat out of a rabbit real soon, on 1/21/21 I will wake up in a socialist banana republic.

    For those who like Ted Cruz’s exchange with DiFi earlier, this video is even better. He goes back to Heller (which he, in fact, argued and WON), and just trounces her and Durbin.

    The thing I love here is his calling the senate out on not having to consider whether a law is constitutional. That’s your job, assholes. Also, he gets more into first amendment rights etc, and how he defends ALL of the rights, even video games, and the need to defend them most when they are unpopular. It’s killer. Ted did me proud. After so many years of freaking DeMint and Graham, when I lived in SC, I am soooo happy to have a civil-liberties focused senator.

  4. Teh muslim bruddahhood has its panties in a wad. They are afeared teh whole world will be dragged into “pre-islamic ignorance.” Yup.

    I have never been a republican conservative in my life. The people here are speaking what i was taught about this country. At one time in this country both parties had the same ideals.
    No one would have ever believed that one party would go so far down the rabbit hole that it would become a threat to the well being of this country.

    many of these new people in the congress give me hope that we have a chance to steer the country back to the right path of what is best for our citizens

    Rand Paul gave a great speech. I love the conservative focus on civil liberties and smaller government. The problem is, somebody always comes along and screws it up and starts talking about regulating and restricting abortion, marriage, homosexuality. Suddenly we’re growing government and invading people’s privacy again.

    Politicians in this country really have to start recognizing that freedom means people have the right to do things that you don’t agree with, that might even not be beneficial to the common good. If you have some pet issue you care about, then you have to win over hearts and minds and get people voluntarily on the same page. You can’t legislate, mandate, ban, restrict things that offend your own sense of morality.

      I have felt the same way, yttik. I have always been a huge defender of civil liberties across the board, and got frustrated when the parties always wanted to pick and choose when they stand for them, depending on the issue.

      A lot of us out here want BOTH parties to leave us the hell alone with their pet projects to “improve society”. At the moment, more righties seem to be finally getting that message than lefties do.

    Many conservatives are rallying around GOProud and telling the prudes to STFU. Some are pro-gay, and even some that aren’t are pointing out that one can have a faith/moral objection to homosexuality and at the same time recognize that so long as gay people are here anyway, it is healthier for society to encourage monogamy and stability rather than endless promiscuity. Jonah Goldberg is evidently giving a smashing talk on this right now at CPAC.

  11. wmcb says:

    Evidently, a group at CPAC didn’t like that GOProud was banned, so did their own panel to which they invited GOProud.

    It is standing room only, they are having to turn people away. There are a FUCKLOAD of conservatives out there fed up with the “gays are icky” crap. We may be witnessing a tipping point of sorts.

      She confirmed them herself and recounted when they were taken.

    • yttik says:

      It’s pretty typical that people wanting mandates and bans to think what they are supporting is only intended for the bad guys. Not us, we’re good guys, so these rules have nothing to do with us. That’s true of just about any issue.

      That’s the real danger behind wanting to restrict civil liberties, people always convince themselves it’s okay because it’s a law against the other guy, not us.

      • Somebody says:

        Well to be fair these pictures are from prior to the shooting. One was taken for her re-election campaign and another when she was visiting troops while she was in Congress.

        It’s entirely possible after having been shot that her views have changed, I think anyone could understand that.

        Her husband and his story about his recent gun purchases are an entirely different matter.

        • driguana says:

          Regardless, Sarah Palin got trashed because of this whole incident…implying that her surveyor’s target on AZ caused Giffords to get shot…they should have shown these photos back then…

        • Somebody says:

          Oh Driguana, if they had released those photos back then it wouldn’t have fit the narrative they were working.

        • yttik says:

          I could understand if her views had changed, but quite a few Dems are all out duck hunting and skeet shooting during campaign season…and then suddenly want all these gun restrictions. They’re like Joe Biden, bragging about his shotgun while advocating for more gun control for other people.

  13. HELENK says:

    here we go with the race shit again. it is getting really old

  14. HELENK says:

    is there any possibility that they will not be let back in the country??

    • Somebody says:

      Well I feel patronized when SHE tells me she knows better than I do what I need to defend myself and my family. When SHE wants to infringe on MY rights. When SHE refuses to acknowledge that only law abiding citizens follow laws, criminals don’t.

      I think Difi, Leahy, Durbin, and Schumer were patronizing to Cruz with all their I’ve been here X number of years and you’ve been here how long. Also, with iterpreting a case he flipping argued before SCOTUS. They seemed to feel they knew the case better than he did.

      So if you want to know patronizing Difi, just take a look in the mirror.

  16. HELENK says:

    I think he likes the internet and the way information gets out that the MSM ignores or distorts
