While big government monsters gathered across the nation to promote their demented interests, Rand Paul was hanging out at FreedomFest 2016 promoting the best interests of liberty and small government.
Billed as the “world’s largest gathering of free minds” FreedomFest 2016 brought some of the best and brightest liberty minded people together for several enlightening and empowering days, which stands as a stark contrast to the dark horizon dominated by the RNC and DNC conventions this month.
Joining visionary guests like Allen West, Rand Paul took part in promoting the “New American Dream” by continuing to rally support for an in-depth audit of the Fed, ending the War on Drugs, and supporting England’s impending exit from the sovereignty crushing EU.
Just a couple of these issues alone should make people pause and wonder why they haven’t been done already. Auditing the Fed, that’s a no-brainer that should be up there with “balancing your checkbook” and “don’t kick kittens.” However, the Fed and Big Government have fought to keep the Fed unaudited; behavior that is simply unacceptable in a modern, free republic.

And this brings up up to the War on Civil Rights, err Drugs. In the name of controlling a violent black market (that the government made by deciding what people could or couldn’t put in their bodies) and the high crime that comes with dealing and using illicit substances, the government has militarized police departments, instituted unholy no knock style raids, expanded asset forfeiture laws to become legalized theft, decided that carrying large sums of cash is suspicious, and in general become honest to God tyrants, all in the name of suppressing a few plants or chemicals. Our prisons are filled to bursting with people who used or sold small amounts of drugs. Ending the war on drugs will go a long way towards erasing America’s shameful high incarceration rate and protecting civil liberties.
FreedomFest 2016 showcases the bright and prosperous future America could enjoy if it simply gave up suckling the teat of big government, and reclaimed our liberty and freedom. Too much power has been given over to too much government, and our nation is a shadow of its former self. Now the NSA listens to our phone calls, and the FBI demands warrantless wiretapping, all in the dubious name of security. It’s time to join with Rand Paul and demand true freedom and liberty! Tell us how you’d expand the notion of liberty and freedom in the 21st Century on Facebook and Twitter.
