    Rand Paul: I'm quitting YouTube

    My New Year's resolution: I'm quitting YouTube

    by Sen. Rand Paul
    January 03, 2022

    Every year, people resolve to do things that are better for their health — quitting alcohol, processed food, toxic relationships. I have come to the realization that my relationship with YouTube is dysfunctional.

    Sure, I can get millions of views. But why should I allow anonymous “fact-checkers” to censor my fully sourced, fact-based content? They don’t want to challenge or debate me with opposing views, they just want my silence.

    Everyone complains about Big Tech. The Left says Big Tech doesn’t censor enough. The right complains that Big Tech censors too much already.

    Many in Congress, on the Left and the Right, want to break up or regulate Big Tech, but few of these loud voices have actually stepped up and quit using Big Tech.

    So today, I announce that I will begin an exodus from Big Tech. I will no longer post videos on YouTube unless it is to criticize them or announce that viewers can see my content on rumble.com.

    Why begin with YouTube? Because they’re the worst censors.

    That's a pretty good New Year's Resolution.

    My goal is to eventually quit Big Tech entirely. I’ve created a news aggregator site, libertytree.com that brings together writers and news in defense of small government and expansive personal liberty.
    That's a great step in the right direction.

    I see that libertytree.com is affiliated with the Independent Institute, which is another good sign. They're a great organization.
    There is nothing to fear from globalism, free trade and a single worldwide currency, but a globalism where free trade is competitively subsidized by each nation, a continuous trade war is dictated by the WTO, and the single currency is pure fiat, fear is justified. That type of globalism is destined to collapse into economic despair, inflationism and protectionism and managed by resurgent militant nationalism.

    Good, now to figure out how to do with Twitter and Facebook. And no there's not a simple solution because both of them have established networks of people, so if you shut yourself down you are going to reach a much smaller audience.

    The idea is to reduce their audience. Let them have the MSNBC crowd and then they can suffer the results of their decisions as their stock price dwindles.

    But it's going to take a large-scale pull back. Rand leading the way is good. If others follow, all the better.

    The only reason I continue to use Youtube is because most of the channels that I'm subscribed to don't move to other channels. If they went to other platforms like Rumble or Bitchute, I'd have no reason to continue going on Youtube.

    Then send them messages. Tell them you'd hate to stop watching them, but you can't do it on that platform anymore and would like an alternative. That'll give them a chance to open their horizons while also getting them concerned over losing viewers like you.

    Just don't use them. I have never used facebook or twitter. I have a satisfying life without them. I have used youtube, maybe once a month or less.

    I'm talking about for Rand Paul, or a politician like him. I don't see a real argument for not cross-posting all your main messages on all the social media sites.

    If he's to stop using them it'd be detrimental to his politics (probably).

    I haven't used Facebook in forever. Twitter is a bit addicting but I never click on their ads.

    Like anyone he, just don't use it. With all the censorhsip and banning it was pointless anyway. He couldn't reach his intended audience.
