Here are 10 great Rand Paul quotes;
In our second in our ‘in 10 great quotes’ (our first was Ron Paul) series we look at some interesting Rand Paul quotes.
A Tea Party tidal wave is coming.
The Tea Party is much ridiculed by the mainstream media, but when liberty wins they’ll eat their words;
I have a message from the Tea Party, a message that is loud and clear and does not mince words. We’ve come to take our government back.
Rand Paul on ‘positive’ discrimination;
I’m not in favor of any discrimination of any form.
Though he doesn’t like discrimination, he accepts that we shouldn’t prohibit it;
A free society will abide unofficial, private discrimination, even when that means allowing hate-filled groups to exclude people based on the color of their skin.
The left NEEDs poverty for its whole philosophy to survive, its not in their interests to solve it;
Do you hate poor people or do you just hate poor people with jobs?
Rand Paul on the US overreaction to fear. Very poignant in the aftermath of the Boston Bombings recently;
Do we fear terrorism so much that we throw out our Constitution, and are we unwilling and afraid to debate our Constitution
Rand Paul on the irony of social security going to the rich;
Let’s means-test benefits - let’s means-test Social Security and Medicare and make the rich pay more for these benefits.
Rand Paul on an over intrusive state;
I don’t want to live in a nanny state where people are telling me where I can go and what I can do.
Even though the Military is one of the few legitimate roles of a state, the federal government is still overspending;
What I say is, national defense is the most important thing we do in Washington, but there’s still waste in the military budget.
On the irony of citizens always wanting lower taxes but refusing to accept cuts;
You can’t have it both ways. You can’t tell me that you’re taxed enough already, and that you want constitutional government and then in the next breath say, ‘Bring me home some bacon.’ The pig has been picked clean.
