      Rand actually tried to run for the same office she's running for now, but people were sick of hearing it. They instead wanted to hear the empty rhetoric about building walls and banning Muslims with low IQs (they have a different culture).

      I get that, I really do. But his loss in my opinion stemmed from his attempt to compromise on some of the things that energized the Ron Paul base. He had a perfect opportunity to build on the growing popularity and instead lost it with his rhetoric.

      I know he's probably the best voice for liberty in congress at the moment but at this point all I hear is talk about Hilary is above the law and nobody has any cahones big enough to challenge it.

      It's sickening that we supposedly have rule of law but the powers that run this country see to it that the law only applies to those not in the elite party.

      I stand by my comment. It's all just talk - is Rand going to DO something?

      I don't know. I just don't. All I know is I see corruption and those with power to do something are not doing anything. But no, I don't know what the options are at this point. I guess I should be happy that he is talking about it to bring attention to it, but it's not fixing anything and I want things fixed.

      Also getting tired of hearing the empty rhetoric from politicians and this goes far beyond just Rand, but all of the people that have been chanting "down with Hilary, down with Hilary!" They bring stuff up like this, which I agree with, and then.. nothing happens. You start to wonder what's the point of them bringing this up beyond getting people that watch these videos riled up in front of their keyboards or bickering for 2-3 minutes on a news network. Benghazi, E-mails, Clinton Foundation, every time we have people grilling Clinton or her aids or investigating the crap out of her and it always produces zero results.

      Does the power that the people give to the congress really not give them the ability to take out clearly corrupt and troublesome figures like this? Where is the indictment of either Hilary, Lynch, or Comey on any of this? What is the point of having an indictment process or giving politicians that whine about stuff like this any power, if they are powerless in the first place? No more videos Rand, we need action.

      I get the feeling Rand and others are holding back due to fear of their own jobs, legacies, "cooperation", getting bills up for vote, etc. Going to continue to be disappointed indefinitely until we see some actual results of obvious, in your face, tyranny and oligarchy being taken down a peg.
