Rand Paul’s plan to grow the economy

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Senator Rand Paul delivered the Tea Party’s response to President Obama’s State of the Union address last night. This morning the Senator, who Glenn believes is the first Libertarian to have a real shot at becoming President of the United States, joined the radio program to discuss his thoughts on the President’s speech, his response, Chris Kyle, and more.

TheBlaze was the only TV network to carry Senator Paul’s response last night, in which Rand proposed a 5-year balanced budget plan which would introduce a 17% flat tax and cuts to regulations on American businesses. The Senator explained to Glenn that would of the motivations behind his plan is the idea that “revenue neutral” tax reform will somehow benefit the economy.

“Revenue neutral does nothing for the economy,” he explained. “It means one person will pay less and another person will pay more.”

He went on to explain that if you really want to stimulate the economy, you have to leave more money in the economy. The GOP is not doing the things that have won them elections in the past, Paul explained.

“We need to be bold. We need to say what we’re for, and we need to explain that we’re for less money up here and more money in the hands of those who earned it,” he told Glenn.

“If you really want to stimulate the economy, you need to do some dramatic things. Because money goes where it’s welcome, and it’s not welcome in the U.S., so it’s going to other countries,” the Senator added.

Rand Paul went on the address where he stands on immigration reform. Much to the surprise of the mainstream media, Paul sees immigrants as assets to the country. He is looking to work with the plan being put together in Congress to add an amendment called “trust but verify.” This would allow the reforms to take place over a 5 year period in steps — but they only continue if each year Congress votes for border security.

Last night the president basically said that if Congress doesn’t go for a carbon tax, he’ll use executive order to implement it. The Senator’s response is go away — it will be challenged. Recently, the GOP won a big victory against Obama’s recess appointments — an enormous restraint on the office of the presidency. And those victories will continue if every time the President tries to go around the Constitution he is challenged.

“He will flout the law when he can so he has to be restrained by the courts,” Sen. Paul said.

Sen. Paul went on to express how impressed he was with Mercury One for their efforts in helping the Kyle family and his shared surprise the the president is yet to say anything publicly about the death of the fallen American hero.

Glenn being Glenn, of course had one last question for Senator Paul — a classic Glenn question: “How’s your spiritual well-being?”

The Senator responded by explaining that when he was first running he used to here from a lot of people that “they were praying for him,” and he wasn’t exactly sure he took it as seriously as he should. That’s not the case now.

“I do need your prayers,” Sen. Paul told Glenn’s radio audience. “And I do need the strength to go on with this because it isn’t always easy. But really…I think our country’s problems are deeper than political. We need spiritual leaders to come forward. We need something beyond just the politics of the day. I see it everywhere — something really depraved is rising in the country. We need something bigger than any politician at this point.”

    While I enjoyed reading about what Rand Paul had to say last night, I have to point out that there are four glaring errors in the copy.  We can’t misspell, leave out words and not proof read everything.  As conservatives, we are under attack for the slightest imperfection and I expect the best from Mercury One, Glenn Beck and The Blaze.

    Could Rand Paul be the First Libertarian with a chance? 

    The question is moot. Rand may have certain Libertarian leanings, but he is far from being a Libertarian. I’m as radical a libertarian as I know and I wouldn’t vote for Rand Paul, even over A Hillary Clinton or a Joe Biden. I expect that in 2016 Former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson, a man with impeccable Libertarian credentials and a record of genuine accomplishment as Governor of a state that Paul can never hope to achieve in his position in the senate, will run again as the Libertarian Presidential nominee and he will have my support. He’ll also have something Rand Paul will lack, after his pragmatic and useless endorsement of Romney in 2012: A principled ability to say “I told you so” over the Democratic record over these next four years.

    Had Paul stuck with his father to the end, or had he truly had the courage of his convictions and supposed principles and endorsed Gary Johnson in 2012, he could have helped propel the Libertarian party to serious attention and growth. Instead, he traded that integrity for political opportunism and will be doomed to be what he has, it seems, always been – someone trading on the accomplishments and good name of his principled father.

    Rand Paul’s plan will work, cut corporation taxes from the highest in the world, implement a flat tax across the board and get rid of the unnecessary and job-killing regulations imposed upon all of us by the Obama administration. 

    His plan will work.

  • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    Rand Paul needs to understand something about Obama and the courts, Obama will ignore any court order that he feels blocks or hampers his agenda. If he is willing to bypass Congress and ignore the Constitution, why will the courts hamper him unless he chooses to be hampered.

     ”Gary Johnson, a man with impeccable Libertarian credentials”.

    I happen to be well acquainted with Governor Gary Johnson. I supported him when he first ran for Governor. Gary is what I like to call a visceral libertarian, i.e., a man who only understands the principles of libertarianism from an instinctive and common sense point of view. As soon as you ask Gary to express his thoughts on Murray Rothbard, Ludwig von Mises, F.A. Hayek, Ayn Rand or even John Hospers (the Libertarian Party’s first presidential candidate back in 1972) Gary’s eyes glaze over. Gary needs to become erudite on the history and roots of libertarianism. Only then, can he have “impeccable Libertarian credentials”. 

    Having said that, I think a Rand Paul/ Gary Johnson ticket in 2016 would be something I would fully support,  and such a ticket would have an excellent chance of success.

    Mr. Paul wants all of America to pay 17% in taxes? Have you figured out what this would do to middle class or the bottom of the middle class? We are not as wealthy as Mr. Paul so this would destroy us. We would loose all we’ve worked for because of this tax. We are conservatives, not liberals but 17% would hurt more than it would help this country. We don’t mind paying taxes, but we do mind taken advantage of. We believe that this tax would cause more middle class citizens to have to accept entitlements. We are against big government but everything that’s being done points to more government, not less.

    “I am not so sure about Gary Johnson”.

    Then look at his record as “Governor veto.”

    “Johnson is best known for his veto record, which includes over 750 vetoes during his time in office, more than all other governors combined.”

    Gary Johnson used to be a Republican, and a damn good one. We used to call him “Governor veto”, because he vetoed everything the Democrats ( aka Kleptocrats) sent up to the governor’s desk. For eight years, the state of New Mexico did fine with “Governor veto” as it’s chief, executive politician, because a “veto” on new spending, a “veto” on new taxes and  a “veto” on new laws were all a good thing. One of Gary’s best attributes  is he is not all talk and no action. He means what he says……

    I believe the best way to curb the Liberals/Dems power base is to Cut Off their Funds!  We Need to go over the Fiscal Cliff and Reset/Restart with a more streamlined budget that was actually approved by Congress (but Moderate Funding). 

    If the welfare system was broken down to State Level and stop Federal Funding of these programs, Americans Would Still Survive!  So what if they have to go out and work like the rest of us!  But, if they are truly handicapped/disabled then they would be taken care of with SSD, and even though the SSI/SSD process is horrible to go through it could be improved because I Personally Know too many that are on the SSD system that could easily work for a living but they are Too Damn Lazy (and I know others that Definitely Need the Assistance to make it through life)!  People come together when there is a need, and they fall apart when given too much for Free…  Americans will Help other Americans if they can, but anymore the Gov’t is taking too much that there isn’t enough to just share the extras (or sharing is becoming illegal except for the Gov’t, which goes against human nature).

    I wish people would understand that we would survive without the Federal Gov’t poking their nose into our everyday lives for No Good Reason.  Some taxes Yes, Lot’s of taxes NO they should never get more than 15% of anybody’s earnings, and Money that has already been taxed (estates for example) should be left alone and Not Re-Taxed…

    Critterwillie, My family is middle-class, we make well below a six-figure income. And yet we pay over 30% in taxes each and every check. A 17% flat-tax would be a godsend to us, not to mention constitutional as it would neither favor nor punish citizens for their income levels. Everyone complains about the rich paying their fair share when in all actuality it is those who are not rich that pay next to nothing in taxes. Time for ALL of us to buckle down and pay the SAME tax rate!!!

    I agree.  I am single with no dependents, and pay around 25% now.  So 17% would be a tax cut in my case.  And no, I am not rich. I am low, low middle class, if not what is usually called the “working poor.

    I was a fan of Rand, still am. But no he has no chance, that clip about the 1964 Civil Rights act makes him ineligible, not because he has that view but because of the the entire establishment. ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, Time Magazine, The New York Times, and The Washington Post will call him a racist either directly or in subtle terms. John Stewart and Colbert will rag on him everyday.

    Its not about issues its about popular culture, this is a popularity contest now. This country is over, no way of getting it back now

    I listened to Rand Paul’s speech on Demand after he was interviewed  by Glenn on the radio and I was struck at how heartfelt and sensible his ideas are. It is probably a blessing in disguise that his response speach was only aired by The Blaze. If he can get his ideas across with the passion, intelligence and clearity he acheived on the show yesterday he will be a formidable contender in 2016. He spoke to me in a way few politicians ever have.  He is sincere, thoughtful and “revolutionary”in the way of the founders. His understanding that politics is not enough and the appreciation of the way he needs to surround his spirit with the armour of the holy spirit gives me hope.

    To be a libertarian from a ‘instinctive and common sense point of view’ is the best libertarian.  Gary doesn’t need to read all these books over years to overcome neocon ways – he is naturally a libertarian – and that realism is best.

    Look at all the anarchists out there that read all these books and then spend all their time attacking other libertarians for not being ‘pure’ enough – that is being a pure anarchist.

    Unfortunately, Ron Paul is somewhat of an anarchist – no solutions and no regulations/rules – this leads to breakdown and chaos as the likes of obama/bush are always out there lurking. 

    Those anarchists that read all those books (whichis great), but then say only if you have done all those readings are you an impeccable libertarian is going back to anarchy.

    Libertarianism should rest in the heart, not just or mainly in the minds as is the case for many anarchists who call themselves libertarians, and infact erose libertarian ideals with luny ideas of ‘throwing out the baby with the bath water.”

    Messaging isn’t the answer. There are two types of ‘messages’ that resulted in defeat during the 2012 elections: Messages about GOP positions rejected by voters and lies about GOP positions rejected by voters.

    Lying isn’t ‘messaging’ — it’s just lying. Mitt Romney tried this approach and failed. Todd Akin can tell you about the other type of ‘messaging’: Intolerant, misogynist, neanderthal ideas that represent a regression to long-discredited thinking.

    What Republicans really need to do is eject the vile, despicable, and widely despised Tea Party (even the name is a lie), and join the human evolutionary process like everybody else. Until then they will just become more and more marginalized. Of course, the nutty Paul followers have always been refused entry into any serious political power and likely always will — they should be used to it by now.

    That’s funny — I distinctly remember him being re-elected in November. Isn’t that more properly termed ‘success’?

    As for your transparent attempt to use a single D.C. Appeals court ruling to prove that you have some intelligent argument to make, let’s just say that President Obama will be in good company when the issue is brought before the Supreme Court. Since 1867, at least 285 recess appointments made by sitting Presidents would be held invalid.

    Let’s not forget that two other Appeals Courts (Atlanta & San Francisco) have ruled otherwise, so it’s clear by both judicial ruling and historical precedent that there are legitimate arguments on both sides. How the Supreme Court rules only time will tell, but I can assure you that Obama has about 10,000% more qualifications than you to decide how to correctly deal with the issue in a perfectly legal fashion.

    Meanwhile, this ‘failed’ (according to you) President will have 4 more years to fill upcoming Supreme Court vacancies. If this is what you consider failure it only goes to show why there are very few goobers employed by NASA or accepted into MENSA.

    Oh yes — you can also back up your petulant whining with some evidence to support Obama’s ‘violations’ of the Constitution. Please tell me that you have more to offer than immature bleating about recess appointments.

    Well, that certainly sounds like projection to me. Also, I truly enjoy ‘up close and personal encounters’ with mouthy goobers like you — I’m just careful to wash my hands afterwards. After all, God put redneck bigots on this Earth to give the rest of us somebody to slap around.

    A homo-habilus discovering his opposable thumbs says what?

  • antithetical radical

    You are irrelevant, and your libtard bias is showing. Why don’t you go back to ALternuts where you learned to be an irritation? No one cares about your ignorant opinions here, or much of the rest of the world for that matter.
    Refute this, if you can.
    Subject: Benghazi – mishandled command – four dead for the sake of the personal vanity of a man on an endless campaign, which took precedent over the lives of embassy staff, who were under attack by hostiles for seven hours and no one could lift a finger or be prepared in advance enough to respond despite many months of warnings and requests for increasing security? The administration got caught with their pants down, so they are still trying to cover it up.

    Fast and Furious – Gun running with the added bonus of using it to fuel the anti-gun agenda that the pResident claims he does not have, but pursues at every convenient opportunity. The administration gets caught with their pants down, and reacts by covering up and obstructing justice when questioned. The Justice Department is complicit in the operation so the pResident simply covers the AG with executive privilege.

    There’s two more examples of his imperial dictates that violate the powers of the executive branch. There’s a lot more, like the patronage doled out to companies like Solyndra, and other campaign contributors. This pResident is as crooked as can be, and it is a matter of time before it all comes crashing down.

    Your judgement of my comments is merely a leftard tactic – if you can’t contest the argument, then resort to attacking the opponent. It’s a sophomoric attempt to marginalize the speaker, but it does not speak to the substance of the argument.

    You have to come better prepared than that, liberal troll boy.

    Because you are a drooling bigot who hates Obama, you must seek to belittle him at every opportunity. Why do you hate Obama? You hate him because he’s black. Why does a black President stress you so? Because it reminds you that there is a black man who is more successful than you in every conceivable way. It highlights the fact that you are a loser.

    When you snivel and whine about Benghazi, you need to also remember that the House GOP bears the responsibility for blocking funding for the very security that they now try to claim was lacking because of Obama. There is little that can be done about an attack in a remote foreign land once it’s underway (or over), and nothing about the attacks can be blamed on anything ‘unconstitutional’. GOP goobers tried their best to attack Hillary about this issue on Capitol Hill, and she handed them their collective ass.

    The so-called ‘Fast and Furious’ accusations are another example of desperate bigots trying to discredit a President who has spanked them repeatedly in public. The gun-walking operation started in 2006 during the Bush Administration, and Obama has never had involvement in this practice. Further, there is no evidence that Agent Terry was killed by any weapon related to these questionable operations. That’s just a insinuation or outright lie by Republican goobers who are sore at being whupped by the black man in the White House.

    You’ve utterly failed to provide ANY evidence to back up your claims — it’s all just the same tired old bullshit that ever Republican LOSER has been trying to use with no success. I don’t know if the GOP will be able to learn their lesson and recover SOME credibility, but at the rate they (and you) are going it will be a long time before they are in a position to win anything other than a bright-red, goober-infested, public-benefit-slurping red state. Even Texas may turn purple or blue soon if they don’t clean up their act.

    Sensible Republicans are already starting to reject the vile and despicable Tea Bigots, whose very name is nothing but a lie and who have offered absolutely nothing useful to this country. Next they need to relearn walking upright — an ability that they never were very good at — and stop attacking women, minorities, the poor — in short, anyone who isn’t an old, wrinkled white bigot. This is the only way that they will ever be able to escape the marginalization they are suffering.

    Lastly, let me assure you of this: I’ve ALWAYS enjoyed mouthy redneck bigots. Thumping them has been a life-long hobby, and the mouthier they are the better.

    Good Lord — it sounds like you’re reciting the script from Brokeback Mountain. Calm down before you blow a fuse or something.

  • antithetical radical

    Wrong on every count. I don’t hate, I got all of that I needed when Uncle Sam stuck and M-16 in my hands back in Vietnam. Hate is for losers like you, and you are the race focused one here, so that makes you the racist.

    I’m not a redneck, you don’t know a damned thing about me or about life. Your screams of racism and hate are absolutely laughable, as are most of the other claims you made. Bush blaming is way out of style, so at what point does this pResident own the responsibility for his own failures? When? That funding argument is bullcrap – the State Department does not pay for the Defense Department to evacuate their people from places under seige like Benghazi – they only needed to request that a USMC helicopter carrier be parked offshore within range – and they had literally months to do it!

    Next time you want to throw blind accusations and assumptions around, toss them toward someone you can buffalo – that isn’t going to happen here.

    The joke is on you fool – I’m not a white guy, so blow it out your racist rear.

  • antithetical radical

    You would know about the brokeback thing, white eyes.

  • YouHeardMe

    I don’t whine and snivel at every opportunity because a black man is in the White House — that’s you. I didn’t like Bush’s policies very much, but I never whined and whimpered like a crying pee-baby over everything he did. You can claim it’s because you don’t like his policies, but then you have to back it up with actual reasons and facts. When a person displays repeated personal hate for somebody they don’t know personally, it’s the result of a character defect. You can attempt to convince the world that it’s not bigotry or racism, but then you certainly have your work cut out for you.

  • YouHeardMe

    I don’t care what color you are — black, white, yellow, purple, red or covered with pink polka-dots (the most likely). I didn’t miss your absurd insinuation that you are Native American, but you’ll have a hard time convincing me that you are anything other than a member of the ‘wannabe’ tribe.

    Your incessant squealing about Obama is no different than every other sniveling sissy who cries daily about the black man in the White House. The man won the Presidential election — twice — so quit your infantile sniveling and deal with it. It’s not like you have a choice.

  • antithetical radical

    No whining. I don’t care what damned color he is, you make that erroneous assumption because your trainers told you that in your brainwashing and indoctrination.

    Now you change names – maybe you need those multiple socks for some reason. I have never expressed hatred for anyone here – prove it if you can. You don’t know me or anything about me, but you will scream hate and bigot at me because of your own ignorance.

    Prove his race has anything to do with my objections to his failure as a leader. You have no proof, and I have not said one hateful thing about the man. He isn’t fit to be pResident, and your insistence that equals a bigoted opinion, or has any racial based hate in it is utter ridiculousness.

    You can lie about me all you like, but you can’t lie about your racial bias, and focusing like you have on it makes you a closet racist – you just are not willing to admit it to yourself. Everyone else sees it, but you are blind to your own bias.

    Hypocrisy seems to be where you dwell.

  • antithetical radical

    I wasn’t raised to consider race – a man’s words and deeds count more than his color.

    Not a bigot at all, eh? For your information I’m not white either — but that didn’t stop you from making that bigoted assumption.

    I don’t need to convince you of anything – you are the one who came here slinging inaccurate assumptions about others – get over yourself.

    This administration is more corrupt than Nixon’s, I know, I was there. You know crap. You are convinced of your own liberal bias, and you assume that everyone is going to call you a great intellect because that is what your mama and daddy told you. So what? The fact is you came here, to a conservative site, to be a liberal troll, and that is the root of this issue. You came here looking for a fight, and when you got it you tried every duck, dodge, spin and name calling tactic in your little red book. It didn’t work on me, so just take your lumps and move-on.org your butt out of here.

    So what exactly did you mean by calling me ‘white eyes’, eh? Let’s see you back-peddle out of that one.

    See you there (if you have any guts at all).

    You can go back to the National Whale Dump – what ever that is. We didn’t need your irrelevance and lies here, and we still don’t.

    You and your friend can either learn to participate and present a relevant and topical post, or you can continue to be trolls from liberal la la land stubbornly resistant to truth. I don’t care what you do.

  • antithetical radical

    You go first and wait for me there.

    I called you white eyes because you are. No back-peddling, if you aren’t then that’s your problem. You and your race baiting friends like to come to sites like this and attack people and call them names with the assumption you are intellectually superior, but in doing so you only show everyone your narcissism. You have a problem in particular with being a condescending ass. Perhaps your parents should have told you that you are not the center of the universe and other people are allowed to have opinions even when they differ from yours, or are not as eloquently expressed. You look down your nose at people and call them goobers and rednecks, but you are really only covering for your own moral weaknesses when you do that.

    It doesn’t take guts to make comments at a website, but it does take brains to know an ambush when you smell it. I am not inclined to follow you to the liberal site of your choosing so you and your twenty pals can pick on me. That isn’t going to happen. It has nothing to do with guts, it has to do with wasting my time, and you simply are not worthy of any more of mine.

  • Sandie

    National Whale Dump is a good name for it. The ignorance over there is so thick you can cut it with a knife.

    Both of you are afraid to post at the National Memo because you would have to leave the relative safety of the Glenn Beck leg-humping party. People over there can think for themselves for the most part. You may learn some clues as to why your party lost the last 2 Presidential elections.

    Bwaaahahaha!

    An ‘ambush’? Really? You must have been quite a hero in Nam. Good thing they didn’t have progressive web sites in Nam — no doubt you would have deserted and run for the hills!

    FYI, I was led here by one of your fellow Glenn Beck leg-humpers who was over there posting his bigoted drivel.

    I must say that your ‘white eyes’ comment was funny. That’s a white European term for white Europeans fashioned to sound Native-American-like (as white Europeans imagine it). Just what I’d expect from a member of the ‘wannabe’ tribe.

    You utterly lost whatever debate we had going, which was more of a quick debunking of your outlandish claims that Obama was committing ‘violations of constitutional law’ and ‘crimes and high misdemeanors’. You were completely unable to back up your ridiculous claims with facts, of course.

    The one thing you DID manage was the ultimate Internet sin: You became completely boring and predictable.

    I can’t agree with you there Glenn regarding Rand Paul as our president.  After all it seems to me that he has been groomed by his father who happens to be the radical and very odd Ron Paul.  You may be very confidant or may I say maybe duped by Rand but I would need a lot more from Rand to feel the way you do.

    OK, but I am not sure how any of this relates to my post.

  • antithetical radical

    You can’t hide your bigotry, and that makes me laugh at you. Your hypocrisy is at a truly astounding level. I never said I hated anyone, I despise his policies and his destruction of freedom, as far as the man himself, I find him nauseating but I don’t hate. You people don’t know what hate is, hate is much much worse than you think it is, but to you even a mild ambivalence is hate because you live in a black and white universe of binary extremes. The world does not operate that way, but you and your fellow contemporary idiots don’t have any concept of the nature of the dynamics of human emotion. It’s always love/hate, black/white, on/off for you and that is the extent of your misunderstanding.

    I was not raised to be one dimensional in my thinking, and you just cannot accept that other people around you base their assessment of others on the things they say and do and the behavior they exhibit.

    There is a whole lot of universe out there that you are ignorant of and you cling to your blindness as a crutch. You have to hate to exist, I do not. You also have to dwell on that hatred, and you make the erroneous assumption everyone else is like you.

    You could not be more wrong. Get over your narcissist self, you simply are not that special or important.

    The Senator is right concerning a spiritual problem. While its noble that Tea Party Patriots want an America that follows the Constitution and is nightly praying for that and that we want leaders who can carry the task out and we want loud voices such as Glenn’s to portray this, what are we doing as individuals to see that God can answer this prayer? If we as a people don’t live up to God’s standards, we can forget him keeping his end of the bargain.
    I see sooo many people who want the Old America back but that old America included The One and only True Christian God, and he gave us a set of 10 Commandments in which to live by.
    If chasing immoral women who will put their filthy pictures on an open social website for men all over the world to lust after, if they will cheat on their wives, drink into drunkeness and have orgies in their homes, do they seriously think God is gonna answer their prayer for America.
    We need some personal, individual convictions to rule our own lives, and live according to God’s precepts, then he can work through these people and will hear from Heaven and turn us back to the old paths we were on, but not before.
