Paul to CPAC: “For Liberty to Expand, Government Must Shrink”

March 13, 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) addressed an enthusiastic crowd of conservatives gathered for ACU’s annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC 2013) in Washington, D.C. Introduced by Al Cardenas, ACU Chairman, Paul addressed a full room of attendees, many of them standing through the duration of the speech.

Senator Rand Paul:

“No one person can decide the law; no one person can determine your guilt or innocence.”  He continued his remarks and asked “Mr. President, will you or won’t you defend the constitution?”  Regarding the sequester Paul stated “Only in Washington can a $7 trillion dollar rise in spending can be called a cut…A sequester just slows the rate of growth.” Regarding the size of government, Paul declared “For liberty to expand, government must shrink.” He concluded “We are the party of jobs and opportunities. We are the ticket for the middle class.”

Paul’s full remarks are available via YouTube here.
