Rand Paul

He's a spitting image of father. I'm hoping he wins the Kentucky senate race and can continue providing a political voice of reason. Rand gave a thrilling speech titled "Who Killed the Constitution" at a 4th of July festival in his home state:

Part 1

It all sounds so nice from a civic perspective...

but I wonder how much we (as christ followers) bow to the false god of capitalism. This should cause the American in us to bristle. Men have died for capitalism. I thought the line "Capitalism is the economy of freedom" was particularly thought provoking. When did we merge our definition of freedom (which can only be found in Christ) with the American definition of do whatever you want.

Don't misunderstand me, I'm not promoting any other economic system, but it is important to note that all economic systems will fail and be corrupt if the people who are participants are not transformed by the renewing work of the Holy Spirit. Without that capitalists will tend towards greed, and marxists will tend toward control, and both will use unspeakable acts of violence to defend the god they worship.
