When people think back to Rome at the end, Flavius Aetius, a great general who defeated the Huns and saved the empire – and was then killed by the Emperor out of jealousy for his success – is remembered as “The Last Roman”, the last leader in Rome who put the fate of Rome above his own. In this sense, Rand Paul, a consistent defender of the Constitution, is “The Last American,” the last Congressional leader who actually sticks to the Constitution and its intent despite the attacks on him that his fealty to the Constitution brings.

So brilliant in weaving wisdom, understanding and knowledge together. Realizing many don’t appreciate Senator Rand Paul; possibly the truth in his words rials up the adversary. Praying he continues to speak out in the wilderness, knowing God is Absolutely Bigger! Thank you CFP for posting.

The billions sent to Ukraine are laundered and then sent back to Hunter and James with ten percent for the big guy.

Kudos Sen. Paul, Kudos Rep. Crocket.

I have heard the Davy Crocket’s story before and Rand Paul’s sensible, intelligent response to giving away taxpayers dollars is great. He mentions Milton Friedman who was a great economist who made a profound mark in free market economics. Rand Paul always makes me feel that there are still honorable people in America. God bless him.

RAND PAUL IS NOT AFRAID TO TAKE A STAND-

Rand Paul was the one standing against more money going to Ukraine, using the argument that there was no accountability for were the money was going.

He was about the only one getting in Fauci’s face.

He Confronted the Supreme Justices about taking lie detector tests.

Rand Paul Grills FBI’s Wray On Getting Private Info From Facebook, Social Media Companies.

Senator Rand Paul had a Press Conference on Ending Military COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate

He’s actually FOR LIMITED government

AND he has a plan to balance the Federal Budget!

The man would make a great President. And why?

He says truthful things that practically nobody else will say. And he says it in a way where most people would believe him.

Foreign Aid is stealing money from poor citizens in one country and giving to rich politicians in another country.

Even if that was not the intent of moneys given, there are very dishonest politicians in poor countries who are VERY willing to take America’s $ illegally- for their OWN personal use, instead of using that money to improve the infrastructure (roads, hospitals, sanitation, public housing, etc) in their own countries.

Not the first I’ve heard it. It’s as true now, as then. We trust our “leaders” to use discretion in their wielding of the power we bless them with. They need be held accountable, even by force, if necessary. THAT’S why our founding fathers gave us the second Amendment. Judgement Day may soon be on the horizon, should they continue to ignore We the People and OUR needs.

First time we’ve heard this story? Really? If that’s true then we are in much worse shape in America than I thought. For heaven’s sake, read America, READ!

Good reminder of Constitutional limitations and cutting some of the frivolous budget expenses, protect our own military security. We need to pay our “tab” first and stop sending others money without impacting Congress pockets as well. Stop increasing debt! There is no free money.

Like some others here, I had heard the story decades ago, but without the needed attribution Rand Paul gives it. It is originally from a newspaper article of 1867 about three decades after Crockett served in Congress, so it may not be true, but at least is now better founded than the rumor I have generally seen.
Thank you Senator Paul.

Will Ukraine Become the New Israel?
Call it a conspiracy theory if you like, but I have read in more than one place that the hidden agenda of the US in Ukraine is to create a new homeland for people from Israel who want to migrate there in order to get out of what increasingly is becoming a failed state headed for collapse.

It’s easy to ridicule this theory, but I think there’s something to it.

ZELENSKY AND NATO PLAN TO TRANSFORM POST-WAR UKRAINE INTO ‘A BIG ISRAEL’
Poor little Israel can’t afford to finance a war to steal the Ukraine and give it to little Israel surrounded by all those mean Arabs, so it wants the USA to do it for them. So be a good politician and give Israel what it wants. It’s tax payer money anyway, not yours.

My father told that Davy Crockett story to us and he learned it as a little boy. Dad was born in 1902. It should be taught in schools.

Right on Senator Paul. Wonder if anyone else was in the chamber.

Most were probably somewhere else and couldn’t care less.

I heard this story of Crockett many years ago and it has been my dream that it would become the mindset of Congress. Unfortunately, we have too many elected officials that no one would trust with their personal checkbook, but somehow they get elected to office. I’m still hopeful that someday it will happen.

If everyone coming to this site took 5 minutes to forward this to their Congressman and Senators it would be an act of patriotism. Thanks Senator Paul for sharing.

Rand Paul is amazing. Meanwhile, McConnell, Cornyn, Romney have their heads in the sand.

The difference is those mentioned and so many others have sold their souls for a buck, or are treasonously stupid. Or maybe just treasonous.

“Put it on our tab” is a euphemism for… let future generations pay for it. Which is… taxation without representation.
