A Legacy of Freedom

 When Congressman Paul of Texas ended his bid for the  Presidential Nomination of the Republican Party, many in the mainstream announced the death of the freedom movement.  But something happened that they did not expect, although logic should have made plain; those voters and their concerns did not go away.  The grassroots supporters who raised over 35 million for Dr. Paul in a nine month period, who came out in droves to give him 25% of the vote in Montana, 24% in idaho, 22% in Washington, and 16% in Pennsylvania,  who flew in from all over the country to attend the counter-convention in St.Paul that ended up outshining the GOP convention in size and enthusiasm had barely gotten started.  When Ron Paul ended his bid for the Presidency he used his remaining funds to start the Campaign for Liberty, which with help from the grassroots has been fueling the campaigns of credible Constitutional Republican candidates in every state in the country.  The one candidate who appears to be making the largest splash so far is Dr. Rand Paul of Kentucky.  Son of the  11th term congressman Ron Paul, Rand is quickly proving that the apple does not fall far from the tree.

Dr. Rand Paul is the founder of Kentucky Taxpayers United an organization that has been fighting to lower taxes in Kentucky since 1994.  The organization pushes candidates for government to pledge not to raise taxes, and aggressively pursues throwing out office holders who renege on their promises.  Dr. Paul is a fiscal conservative who opposed the bailouts, and what he terms the “tax of inflation.”

Also with the healthcare debate quickly taking center stage in the political arena, people like Dr. Rand Paul who have  spent their lives in the medical profession, will be turned to on how best to proceed.  Unlike career politicians like Trey Grayson whose sole lifetime experience can be summed up as learning how best to manipulate the law in ones’ favor.

Rand Paul has already proven that  he has the support of Constitutional Republicans by bringing in over a million dollars in the last quarter.  Trey Grayson, his Republican Primary rival has refused to announce how much he has brought in.  Which obviously leads us to the assumption that Grayson is either barely competing  or falling behind in fund-raising.

In the polls Dr. Paul is doing far better than anyone expected, carving a seat as one of four front-runners in the race for Kentucky’s Senate.  In the latest Rasmussen Poll when compared to Daniel Mongiardo a Democrat, Dr. Paul leads by five percent and against the democratic front-runner Jack Conway he trails by only four percent with a 4.5 percent margin of error.  Trey Grayson only leads Dr. Paul by between 1-2 percentage points when replaced in the poll.  However, to Dr. Paul’s benefit he has a three percent lead on Trey Grayson in the “very favorable” category which will translate into more troops on the ground spreading his message of fiscal governance.

All this leads us to wonder, is Rand Paul about to catapult himself into the front-runner’s seat?

  2. Awesome blog.
    We need a healthy Rand Paul blogging community.

    I put your blog in my blog-roll.

    Currently over at Rand Paul Forums we’re having a problem with some very anti-Rand Paul stuff showing up from blogger in the Google News Feeds, so if you wouldn’t mind linking to my blog, maybe we can get some positive “news” articles from blogger showing up in Google news for “Rand Paul.”


  3. Awesome blog!

    I thought about starting my own blog too but I’m just too lazy so, I guess Ill just have to keep checking yours out.

  4. This is a GREAT blog, really nice work! I just wanted to add that WHEN, not if Dr. Rand Paul makes it to the Senate, I am confident that he will be a SHINING example of what a Senator was meant to stand for, as Dr. Ron Paul is in the House!

    Ron Paul RETURNS the unused portion of his Congressional budget EVERY year and ALWAYS consults the Constitution before he votes on any bills, and he is a true gentleman! God bless you both, we need SO MANY more representatives like these fine men!

  5. Hey, I found your blog while searching on Google. I have a blog on online stock trading, I’ll bookmark your site.

  6. I don’t know If I said it already but …This blog rocks! I gotta say, that I read a lot of blogs on a daily basis and for the most part, people lack substance but, I just wanted to make a quick comment to say I’m glad I found your blog. Thanks, :)
