“The Facebook generation can detect falseness and hypocrisy a mile away. They are the core of the ‘leave me alone’ coalition. They doubt that Social Security will be there for them. They worry about jobs and money, rent and student loans. They want leaders that won’t feed them a line of crap or sell them short. They aren’t afraid of individual liberty. Ask them whether we should put a kid in jail for the nonviolent crime of drug use and you’ll hear a resounding no. Ask them if they want to bail out Too-Big-To-Fail banks with their tax dollars. And you’ll hear a hell no. There is nothing conservative about bailing out Wall Street.”
Senator Rand Paul, in his speech today at CPAC 2013.
I didn’t get to watch the speech live, but this bit in particular was great.
