"Tell them that Paul couldn't be elected and they voted for him, anywa, both times, even when they had to write him in on the ballot." That's right. I voted my convictions and belief in what's right, not just who was popular on TV, or who I thought would win, anyway. We aren't voting for class president. We're voting for President of the United States.

WASHINGTON -- When Senator Rand Paul took to the floor of the United States Senate the morning of March 6 he really -- as they say -- may have made a difference. It is a difference in our awareness of the issues facing the country. It is a difference in our perception of the man who is leading the country, President Barack Obama. It might even have been a difference in the direction the country will go. Will it continue on its melancholy path toward statism or will it follow the course of freedom as laid out by the Founding Fathers?
