Rand Paul at the 2012 RNC National Convention Spoke true and clear:
"This explosion of debt is unconscionable and unsustainable. Mr. President, we will not let you bankrupt this great nation.
Republicans and Democrats alike though, must slay their sacred cows. Republicans must acknowledge that not every dollar spent on the military is necessary or well spent. Democrats -- Democrats must admit that domestic welfare and entitlements must be reformed.
Republicans and Democrats must replace fear with confidence. Confidence that no terrorist and no country will ever conquer us if we remain steadfast to the principles of our founding documents.
We have nothing to fear except our own unwillingness to defend what is naturally ours, our god-given rights. We have nothing to fear that should cause us to forget or relinquish our rights as free men and women.
To thrive, we must believe in ourselves again, and we must never, never trade our liberty for any fleeting promise of security."
