September 23rd Rand Paul Moneybomb Video

This is a video to promote Rand Paul's September 23rd Money Bomb, on the same day that his GOP primary opponent Trey Grayson will be holding a $500/plate fundraiser in Washington D.C. organized by 23 U.S. Senate Republicans (17 of whom voted for the $700 Billion Bailout!).

Grayson is clearly the establishment's pick.

Let's show them who the grassroots pick is!

PS: Here's the list of all 23 Republican Senators sponsoring this fundraiser (call or e-mail yours to express your disagreement with their choice), and here's the roll call vote for the $700 billion TARP bailout last Fall.



I posted this video to Liberty Forest forums and got this reply:

I liked the vid but the soundtrack leaves a lot to be desired.

So here's my explanation of the music selection:

I went with very American and very "roots" music to emphasize Rand's commitment to the American values of limited government, individual liberty, and constitutionalism, as well as his grassroots appeal and support.

It has a raw and real feel because Rand's campaign and his supporters are "raw and real" and not the polished Washington establishment types. The song also has "grit" and passion like the patriots who are rising up in this era of American politics.

The lyrics say "If I had my own way I'd tear the whole building down" which is what needs to be done. The whole Washington establishment with its moneyed corporate interests- the "building" if you will- needs to be torn down.

I don't know if that changes your opinion a little or not, but hopefully it gives you an idea of what I was thinking.

Plus- I think it's good music ;)

PS: Apparently "Blind" Willie Johnson (the author and performer of the piece) was arrested for singing this song when a police officer passing by took it for incitement. Stick it to the man!
