Here doing his own State of the Union response is Rand Paul. Why? Why the fuck not. Enjoy:
Of course Paul starts out by mentioning Ronald Reagan. And because it is a Paul family speech he has to start out by blaming the Federal Reserve. Then he encourages us all to be like Starr Parker. In a sign that he is a man with new ideas Paul calls for Economic Freedom Zones, which sounds like Jack Kemp’s Enterprise Zones.
Yes, like all speeches there are plenty of cliches. He wants us not to rearrange the deck chairs on the Titanic, or that the emperor wears no clothes. Yada, yada, yada.
This is the Rand Paul for President stump speech, with a few more government bashing stories thrown in there for good measure.
