Go Rand, Go! – Support for Rand Paul’s Epic Filibuster

Posted by Troy on 6th March 2013 in Current Events

Much like when King Leonidas at Thermopylae, there is something very noble about a man standing against invincible odds and holding out until he is totally spent.  In the end, it will all be for naught, and he knows this.  His voice will be horse, his wits will be slowed, his body will ache, and he will have nothing to show for it other than the honor of having fought the good fight.  So, why do I praise him?  Because, in the end, that is all of us.  At the end of the day, this world destroys us all in the truest sense that we will all die.  All we can do is try our best and fight the good fight every day of our lives even though we know in the end, defeat is inevitable.  I think that’s why we support the valiant.  That’s why we root for the underdog.

I have to say, I love some of the points he is making.  This is his finest moment, and this is what he will be remembered for, especially if he breaks Strom Thurmond’s record.  I hope he does.  I hope they do a DVD collection of his speech.  I know I’d watch it.

For evil to triumph, good men need do nothing.  For our rights to be stripped one by one, we just remain silent.  Praise be to Rand Paul for making his stand and speaking his mind.

Long Live the Constitution!
