Well, once again, I’m writing pretty late at night, but that’s okay. It’s still Thursday for a few more minutes, and after all, Rand Paul isn’t opposed to working late for a good cause; neither am I.
So, did you hear clips of Senator Paul’s filibuster? If you didn’t, there’s a video at Mediaite.com and the whole thing at C-Span if you really want to dig in for 13 hours of Libertarian genius. If you want a short intro to just who Rand Paul is, check out TokenLibertarianGirl‘s video. She’s been ready for Rand Paul 2016 long before conservatives picked up on the idea today.
Not that I’m ready to think about 2016 yet, but I think we’ve finally seen what leadership should look like, and it makes 2014 look a lot better. Did you know Rand Paul had filibustered the renewal of the Patriot Act? I think it’s time that we far-right conservatives embrace the Libertarians who have made a home in our party. We may not agree on everything, but we all want our Constitutional freedoms, and that’s a good place to start.
