Rand Paul Just Won The First Primary Of 2016
Uniting Libertarians and Republicans..."Now I was told I only get 10 measly minutes," he said. "But just in case I brought 13 hours of information."

rand paulNational Harbor, Md. —
Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul called for a new, more libertarian Republican Party today at CPAC, rallying an enthusiastic at the conservative conference audience around his civil liberties message.
"Our party has been encumbered by an inconsistent approach to freedom," Paul said. "The new GOP needs to embrace freedom in both the economic and the personal sphere."
"If we're going to have a Republican Party that can win, liberty needs to be the backbone of the GOP. We must have a message that is broad, our vision must be broad, and that vision should be based on freedom."
The speech was remarkably campaign-like for a Senator who is not up for re-election for another three years. Appearing after Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Paul called for Republicans to support his budget — which eliminates the Department of Education, halves the corporate income tax rate, and balances the budget in five years — selling himself as the party's defender of the middle class.
"I will stand for our prosperity and our freedom and I ask everyone who values liberty to stand with me," he said.
And CPAC went wild for Paul's message. Attendees decked out with Stand With Rand banners and tee-shirts packed the ballroom, standing rapt with attention and cheering raucously throughout the speech.
One week after his 13-hour filibuster, Paul once again managed to unite libertarians with the Republican mainstream, further proving himself as a national leader in the GOP and a formidable candidate for the party's presidential nomination should he decide to run in 2016.
