Young Senator Paul, recognizably intoxicated, by the possibility of what, at Washington, passes for, the idea of power, could do with a more creative speechwriter.
We did very much like Rand Paul’s Daddy, very much, we did.
Old Dr. Paul had a sense of humor, rare as hen’s tooth at Washington and rarer still, old Dr. Paul held to a cheery self-deprecation, a flower worn in his lapel that is the most unique bloom of all in this dismal city, a bloom not worn and a self-deprecation utterly lost on all other men at Washington, and sadly so, lost likewise, on his own son, Rand Paul, an apple who appears to have fallen from a far distant and different tree altogether from Daddy.
The lugubrious, melancholic, young Senator Paul today has announced his ambition to be President and says, as do all ambitious American candidates:
“We have come to take our country back!”
Left, right and center, all American candidates always say these same tiresome, predictable and bromidic things:
“We are going to take our country back!”
The inference and implication of course being that the country has been hijacked by an alien force not related,
By blood or by marriage,
To the “WE of OUR country.”
This, ceaselessly repetitive, clarion call presupposes and assumes that there is a discernibly legitimate WE who own the country and an impartially, discernibly legitimate, place for us to take OUR country back to.
The incumbent President has said just the same words to his flock repeatedly.
All ambitious candidates claim to speak for the WE, who rightly own, OUR country.
The Americans themselves are left wondering, as ever, as always, these things, young Paul:
“Just who are WE and where are WE taking OUR country back to?”
Or, as less polite, more direct, men than ourselves might put it to Rand Paul on hearing his announcement of ambition:
“Oh, yeah, and just who in the hell are WE?”
- Mortal man holds to fleeting, feeble and fallible opinion. God holds to immutable fact.
- The rich man ought not be taxed at all~~he ought be compelled to employ and train the poor man~~directly~~personally.

He says out loud what many people think deep down, and what the politicians refrain from saying because they are either too demagogic or too chicken. Le Pen, with all his faults and qualities, is probably the only one who thinks about the interests of France before his own."~~ French actor~~Alain Delon
