Rand Paul – GOP Superhero?

Our good friend Jason Mattera has put together this great video of the new Captain America, Rand Paul (R-KY). Senator Paul has been a consistent defender of the Constitution and of our liberty. Some in the GOP may disagree with his more-libertarian positions on foreign policy, but on domestic issues he has been a consistent leader of the conservative and libertarian wings of our party. Senator Paul is preparing himself for a run at the White House in 2016. Can he bring the GOP together and defeat the Democrats?

America’s favorite ophthalmologist, Rand Paul, has been standing up to government abuse at the NSA, the IRS, the Department of Justice, and more. Now, he has a true superhero identity!

Rand Paul has stood against the hypocritical use of the Department of Justice by its leader Eric Holder.

Rand Paul has spoken out against the disgusting abuses by the IRS against conservative activists.

Rand Paul has led the charge against the NSA’s spying on American citizens under the pretense of protecting us – when in reality it is all about government accumulation of power.

Rand Paul has stood against the overreaching power of the federal government to kill American citizens without trial.


The simple fact of the matter is that there are precious few Republicans standing tall against the Obama administration and the onslaught of progressivism. Leaders like Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Trey Gowdy and others are not the norm in the Republican Party. Today’s crop of GOP leaders have names like Boehner, Cantor, McCain, Graham and Christie. These are moderate-liberals who happen to agree with Democrats on a great many things (especially the budget and spending).

We need more leaders like Paul and Cruz, with the gust to take stands even when they’re unpopular.
