I am sure that it comes to you as no surprise (if you have read this blog for very long) that I am a fan of Rand Paul (Ron Paul's son)... I figured that I would take a break from posting value investing stuff to throw out his name to you all and to take the time to say that I am gonna be donating as part of June 1st 'money bomb'.
In a nutshell, Rand is going to run for Jim Bunning's US Senate seat, should Bunning not run for re-election (which, it doesn't look as if he will). Paul, like his father is pretty anti-government and really pro-freedom. If elected, he would certainly be a great voice for liberty and even better to have in office. It seems to me that the 'Campaign for Liberty' will help him fund raise, but still... we need to get him some real press-and NOW!
If you like the following videos (which I got to see in person) and want to donate money to a principled candidate that actually has a chance of winning, give him some money-even if it is just $20 bucks. I am sure that it will pay better dividends than your favorite stock. It may come as a shock to you that if there is a 3 way race in the primary, Paul could feasibly win with only 30,000 votes. In the general election, he will probably be running against our Lt. Governor (who is a total jack ass.)
