    Default Rand Paul Nullify Threat Goes Mega Viral

    Senator Rand Paul’s threat to “nullify” unconstitutional executive orders by President Obama has gone viral. With over 14,000 comments on the Huffington Post article in less than 24 hrs.

    Good opportunity to explain the term "nullification."

    They have been heavily conditioned.

    I find it ironic that many of them go nuts over the NRA ad on the president's children yet in the Huffpo comments many of them are attacking Rand's kids.

    Liberal logic!

    The Constitution is an agreement between the states, they also have the right to ensure that the agreement is not breached by the beast that was created by it.

    I really try hard not to go to HuffPo. For a while, I had the domain blocked, but when I reset the router the block went away and I'm too lazy to go back and block it again.

    Might also be a good time to explain the word Legislation. An Executive Order isn't legislation.

    It's really strange. Nobody makes liberals see red like Rand does. I think he exposes their hypocrisy better than anyone though.

    Though? Rand Paul really makes them see red because of two things: He talks like a Republican (unlike his father) and he exposes their hypocrisy better than anyone. Indeed, he exposes their hypocricy so well they can't deny seeing it themselves. Unforgiveable!

    We didn't get Ron Paul the nomination because he made Republicans see their own hypocricy and they didn't appreciate him for it. They threw the election rather than reward him for it. Now Rand looks poised to do as much for the other 'team'. The nomination will be a challenge, once Fox turns on him. But the general election will be a bigger challenge. Last fall, we could have given Ron the general on a platter, if Republicans had more sense. Anyone who can actually get the nomination, on the other hand, could pose a challenge come November.

    Ron wouldn't have had it in the bag by a long shot. You underestimate the Obama machine.

    Obama's machine and cult would have crushed Ron and Rand, sadly.

    And so might Clinton's next time.

    The odds of RP beating Obama in the general election were very low. The polls showing him close to Obama were that way because no one was pummeling him in debates, in the media or in ads. Truthfully, I would be surprised if he would have won more than 7 states.

    Rand on the other hand could win a general election. I think people like Glenn Beck will stay the course with Rand. Most of the right wing talk show hosts will support him much more than they supported McCain or Romney. Everything is going to have to go right for Rand to win but it definitely feels doable. No reason why he can't win Iowa and New Hampshire even against tough opponents.

    It's just more double-standards from the left. If they didn't have double-standards they'd have no standards at all.

    Nullification ftw

    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

The founders understood that people would be flawed, that political leaders would not be the best of men … so they set forth the constitution. We don't follow the constitution in this country; had we done so in 2001 and 2002, the world would be a different place" - Karen Kwiatkowski

    watching the badnarik video in another thread gave some great ideas on how to position liberty as the way for the future.

    lol, when I see a headline I like on sites like Huff or Gawker, I know not to read the comments.


    Rand makes liberals feel so threatened, he is an obvious choice in the GOP. It would be a great talking point if I was talking to voters in IA and NH primaries.
    Los Angeles County Republican Party (the largest GOP central committee in the nation)
    -57% of the executive board is liberty
    -43% of the executive committee is liberty
    -40% of the central committee is liberty

    Getting involved at the local level is the most important thing you can do to WIN

    be ACTIVE, be EFFECTIVE, be ORGANIZED, be STRATEGIC, be VICTORIOUS.

    HuffingtonCOMpost comments are always absolutely horrible, just a bunch of hateful, knuckle-dragging, and mouth breath progressive bigots
    "Power tends to confuse itself with virtue...conferring upon it a special responsibility for other nations—to make them richer and happier and wiser, to remake them, that is, in its own shining image. Power confuses itself with virtue and tends also to take itself for omnipotence. Once imbued with the idea of a mission, a great nation easily assumes that it has the means as well as the duty to do God's work." - William Fulbright

    Didn't Obama LOSE like 10 million votes? The machine isn't as strong as you give it credit for. Romney got LESS votes then Mccain. I think it wasn't the machine that got Obama the win, it was the fact that Romney was a terrible candidate. Even with all that hate for Obama and the fact that he loss 10 million votes, Romney managed to get less votes then McCain. That should say something right there.
