    What question would you ask Rand?

    I may be able to ask Rand a question or two, what would you ask?

    Rush to confirm crappy Kavanaugh before the '18 elections

    Senator Paul, is it important to rush through a crappy SCOTUS nominee like Kavanaugh before the election, considering that he may be on the court for decades?
    Feel free to rephrase that.

    Senator Paul, on your visit to Jerusalem, why did you visit the Wailing Wall, but not visit the Church of the Resurrection which houses the Holy Sepulchre (the Tomb of Christ) and is considered by Christians from the earliest centuries to be the holiest and most revered place on earth?

    Incidentally, Trump did visit it. The first sitting President to do so.

    He didn't?

    Wow, I have been to Jerusalem twice, and visited the Church. I also went to Bethlehem against State Department policy , (I was in the military). No one was there because of the restrictions (Intifada going on). Had the place all to ourselves with our Arab guide.

    It was not on his itinerary. I would guess that over 90% of Christian tourists (at least faithful ones) make sure to visit it when they visit Jerusalem, considering it is the traditional site of Christ’s resurrection. Was shocked to learn Rand did not go.

    I grew up going to Lutheran Church every Sunday, so I had been told many stories. I'm slow, and unattentive in that sorta thing. but going to Jerusalem was amazing, just amazing, everybody needs to go there.

    Even a heathen like our Injun @oyarde might gain something by leaving his reservation to visit.

    I cannot think of any middle eastern country I have not visited (or major city ) . Sorry you missed the Hard Rock Cafe Jerusalem , they were not in business long . The old days were rough . You had to get the pricey hotel near a british or american embassy to get a place with a bar . The Hard Rock in Tel Aviv had a suicide bombing right outside about '96 killing 13 or so if I remember , bad for business .

    I would thank him for everything he has done and tell him how grateful I am that he is using his talents to further the cause of liberty even in the face of eminent danger to his personal safety and wish him and his family the best.

    I'd be curious as to how much he's ever visited this site.

    Also, does he have any tape of his 1984 debate against Phill Gramm, and can someone upload it to youtube?


    edit: Also, anything about his conversations with Trump would be interesting.

    If I had the chance to ask Rand a question, I would ask what Trump's favorite beverage is.

    Does Trump still drink a lot of Diet Coke or has he moved onto something else?

    Do you really want Senator Paul to be on record as to saying that he's visited this site? Think about the damage to his career that would cause.

    Do you believe that libertarianism is the true opposite of big government and socialism, and therefore, libertarians are assailed from all sides? Should libertarians brand themselves as the true “resistance”?

    Is there any hope in countering the increasing leftist bias of the media, social networking and technology companies? Once Fox Business Network is owned by Disney, will there be any media other big government leftist propaganda?

    He said in one of the 2016 debates he would not be the guy that runs every 4 years, I don't think he will give up on America, he doesn't give up on anything, he is persistence personified. He wants to restore the Fourth Amendment, and bring back privacy and capitalism, and fix the justice system so the government can't lie, steal or cheat. He is a true believer. There is only one cure for this countries ill; we need more Rand Paul.
