Thread: Rand Paul vs. Mongiardo in Louisville (photos)

  1. #1

    Thumbs up Rand Paul vs. Mongiardo in Louisville (photos)

    Just got back from an event earlier today in Louisville between both Rand and Mongiardo. And just as with the last event I posted, here are some photos from the event that I would like to share with you all. You can find even more on my Flickr, here.






    Mongiardo realizing how lame his speech was compared to Rand's.




    I was also able to meet with TruthisTreason at the event, and exchange a few laughs before the event was underway. It was great to meet a fellow patriot.

    And I know that TruthisTreason was also able to capture Rand's entire speech, and Q&A, he unfortunately didn't get to see Mongiardo totally demolish Benjamin Franklin's famous statement (Those who sacrifice Liberty for Security deserve neither.) and then claim it was a statement by Thomas Jefferson. I could hardly keep myself from bursting out laughing. Hopefully someone else who was recording the event will post it on YouTube, as I saw two other cameras in the audience.

    But anyway, in the meantime of TruthisTreason hopefully uploading his video of the event, you can find high resolution versions, and approximately 15 more photos I took at the event here.

    Unfortunately, they had it set up to where they each got 30 minutes to speak and field questions. So they didn't get to directly respond to each other, but Mongiardo threw in a few unneeded punches at Rand, which is the consequence of Rand going first due to Dan's lateness.

    Hahaa, you shoulda seen what was up Mongiardo's nose before I retouched his nostrils.

    They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.

    * This was written by Franklin, with quotation marks but almost certainly his original thought, sometime shortly before February 17, 1775 as part of his notes for a proposition at the Pennsylvania Assembly, as published in Memoirs of the life and writings of Benjamin Franklin (1818). A variant of this was published as:
    o Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
    + This was used as a motto on the title page of An Historical Review of the Constitution and Government of Pennsylvania. (1759); the book was published by Franklin; its author was Richard Jackson, but Franklin did claim responsibility for some small excerpts that were used in it.
    * An earlier variant by Franklin in Poor Richard's Almanack (1738): "Sell not virtue to purchase wealth, nor Liberty to purchase power."
    "You know not what you are given, but forever will you know what has been taken away from you..."

    Fail on my part -- he already saw it and posted before I hit Send -- kind of a funny coincidence though

    I did try to actually, but was reverted by some random IP person. Which one did you have in mind specifically?

    Edit: And I'll be in Henderson in December for Rand Paul, so if none of these are good enough for the Wiki, I'll try to get some more photos when I'm at that event as well .

    Oh well, I'll get some more pics of Rand in December. Hopefully there will be a bit better lighting next time so I don't have to use my flash the whole time...
