“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader. “ – John Quincy Adams – 6th President and Thomas Jefferson Protégé
“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.” – Dwight D. Eisenhower
“Surely the President can agree with us, that theft from government is not good. I know it’s bold. It’s out on the edge. I know from a Chicago-Springfield background it’s hard to fully grasp that honesty could be part of government.” – Newt Gingrich
Rand Paul on Social Security Theft and Moral Leadership
Rand Paul took a strong moral position that the Congress stole from retirees. The political correct notion was that the disabled be helped. Rand took the position that retiree pension fund should not be tapped. His speech went viral on the internet. See it below. I got this from Ed Griffin’s site. It is worthwhile reviewing.
“A speech by Senator Rand Paul has gone viral on the Internet and already has received 60-million views. Paul spoke out against a bill that was passed in the middle of the night without debate or chance for amendment that removed the debt limit and took $150 billion from the Social Security fund to be used for current general expenditures. [The intense interest in this speech suggests that Americans finally are beginning to take an interest in what the political mob is doing to them.] Real Clear Politics 2015 Nov 4” (Story)
portion of the speech relating to Social Security
Here are additional details of Senator Rand Paul’s speech against unlimited debt.
Paul concludes by saying that the left and the right have come together in an unholy alliance to explode the debt. The left gets more welfare, the right gets more military contracts, and the taxpayer is stuck with the deal. ” CNS News 2015 Nov 2 (Story) (Cached)
Short and ON Target
I like Rand Paul because of his consistency for the Constitution – but the Press – – -politically correct and controlled by the Elite – – does not. I also like Rand Paul because he has shown a strong moral compass that guides his life professionally. Compare him to Hillary or Obama or …. The list goes on.
Strange that when you tell the truth, your are disliked in this modern world of make believe that you can have your dreams without paying for them or by stealing from another’s savings. The fact that this video went viral is a sign that America is waking up. The fact that Rand Paul, a Presidential candidate is the leader again in a controversial fight is also significant. That is what Leadership is all about – – being out front on controversial issues and being driven by a strong moral compass.
In passing I must note (1) We are in a depression (2) Unemployment is at 23% (3) 50 million people are on food stamps (4) The disabled files are skyrocketing because our government has “loosened” the requirements to let just about anyone in. (5) Obama’s excess in putting people on Social Security disabled has broken the bank. He needs money. This is how he and his party are going to get it – they steal it.
