Overview



Senator Rand Paul, leading national politician and 2016 Presidential candidate, presents his vision for America.
From his electrifying thirteen-hour filibuster against administration-orchestrated drone strikes against U.S. citizens, to leading the discourse on criminal justice, Senator Rand Paul has taken Washington by storm. His outreach to this country's minority communities alone- championing reforms of mandatory minimum sentencing, school choice, and the creation of enterprise zones for economically depressed areas- distinguishes him as a politician and Republican the likes of which are rarely seen.

What lies ahead is Senator Paul's plan for America, where lower taxes and smaller government empower a muscular and expansive middle class; an America that doesn't engage in nation-building or fight wars where the best outcome is stalemate; an America that believes in constitutionally protected liberty and the separation of powers.

Editorial Reviews

Sarah Palin on The Tea Party Goes to Washington
"An exciting and needed call to change for all Americans"
Judge Andrew P. Napolitano
"Senator Paul has given us a blueprint for limited government that would make Jefferson estatic...the Senator speaks in words we understand with conviction we all admire and an understanding of the issues that is breathtaking."

The new Breed Libertarianism meets Nationalism. A new breed of mainline politician. Rand Paul is the future of politics on The Hill and in Washington, and incapsulates what it means to be Libertarian, with very classically Liberal and conservative ideals blended in just the right amount. Not leaning too far right, nor too far left, he is the best of both worlds ( Democrat and Republican) although there isn't too much about these old archaic parties to be proud of in modern politics. Socially Liberal and fiscally Conservative philosophies and policies are what the heart of most intelligent, hard working Americans truly yearn for. Having the freedom to control one's own destiny monetarily, and live our lives as we, not big government, see fit, is the essence of true Liberty and freedom in an America consumed by people constantly trying to control others actions or capital through the means of statist, socialistic policies. Senator Rand Paul offers a very promising and attractive alternative. From balancing the budget of our near 21 trillion $ debt, auditing the Federal Reserve, to ending the draconian "War On drugs" that has wasted billions of tax payers dollars and ruined millions of lives, Rand Paul looks to overhaul the whole political system in which we live. With far over 100 Bills authored with bipartisan support from both parties, The Senator has proven he isn't your typical politician who just "talks the talks" but actually gets things done and in a very big way. Criminal justice reform that has drastically affected minority communities in inner cities, has also been one of the Bills he has championed and been most vocal about on both sides of the isle. You can clearly see his Libertarian roots and leanings oozing at the base of his many revolutionary ideals like foreign policy and what it truly means to enact principles and restraint based off the "Non-agression Principle." Needless death, money and lives need not be wasted on a neocon centered foreign policy based on endless un-constitutional war and nation building. One topic I found of great interest was his visionary economic recovery proposal for "Economic freedom zones" where in which highly impoverished areas like Detroit and inner city Chicago get massive tax cuts in order to encourage entrepreneurship, spending and economic stimulation. The more money citizens have in their pockets, the more they will spend. In turn, this undermines the need for the massive welfare state our Country has relied on the last few decades. Our current system is clearly not working to all our advantage and needs reformation fast. This is but one of the MANY revolutionary ideas this wunderkind of politics proposes in his book. If you are tired of Big Government intervening in every aspect of your life, the endless un-consitutional wars, the Nation building, the "War on drugs," the mass Orwellian collection of meta-data, the corrupt bureaucrats and politicians living above the laws they pass, the clear incompetence of our elected officials and dismemberment of our Bill Of Rights, or are just tired of the general consensus of what both of the 2 parties have become, I highly suggest you give this one a read. He isn't your typical politician by any means and this isn't your typical political read. While Rand is a registered Republican, it is clear he is "playing ball" to change the system from within as Bernie Sanders has done on the left. We do need a political Revolution in this Co
