Q and A Session at Howard University

Howard University student to Sen. Rand Paul: “Good afternoon, Senator. My name is Keenan Glover, I’m an administration of justice major from Rochester, New York. A freshman, as well. You say you want to provide a government that leaves us alone. Quite frankly, I don’t want that. I want a government that is going to help me. I want a government that is going to help me fund my college education. I want a government that won’t define me by my FAFSA or by my family’s income. I’m a dollar sign with a heartbeat in this nation. This society is a mirror image of Capitol Hill. Do you, Senator Rand Paul, have a solution to come up with new American values so that the citizens of this nation have a worth of more than dead presidents and Ben Franklin?”

Honestly, I think he is wasting his time. The black culture in our nation is so utterly depraved and corrupt that efforts like this are akin to Charlie Brown kicking the football. There are some very intelligent, thoughtful and rational African-Americans in this nation who understand the values of conservatism, but the umbrella over it all casts a dark shadow of dysfunction and perversion of values.

Looks like Rand tried to brush over those programs in his speech.

As a response to the question hes says “We dont have to agree on every issue...I want a government that leaves you alone...that doesnt mean no government..

Trying to create this picture for them: ‘WOW, leave me alone?? I love that idea, I still get all those freebees and Rand will stop the POLL-ICE from their stop and search missions though my neigborhood? I can smoke weed without getting hassaled?”

My point is that to be serious Rand needs to at least try to convince them his real positions are good for them.

I still remember the Jack Kemp disaster.
