Publisher's Summary

Senator Rand Paul, leading national politician and likely contender for the 2016 presidential bid, presents his vision for America.

In his four years since joining the Senate, Rand Paul has risen to the forefront of the national discussion. He's being called "the most interesting man in politics" by TIME magazine. When Senator Paul believes in an issue, he reaches across the aisle to collaborate with his colleagues. He's worked with Senator Kirsten Gillibrand on an antiwar bill, a financial assistance for childcare bill, and a protection for women in the military bill. He's also working with Senator Cory Booker to reform the nation's criminal justice system. He's received standing ovations from conservatives when he spoke at CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) and standing ovations from students when he spoke at University of California at Berkley, known to be a liberal institution.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "Absolutely AWESOME & Inspiring!!!"

    I challenge EVERYONE (whether you're; a Liberal or a Conservative, for or against, him as a Presidential candidate) to listen-to/read "Taking A Stand: Moving Beyond Partisan Politics to Unite America" by Dr. Rand Paul M.D., because it will blow your mind how much sense it all makes. And this will ring true for anyone with common sense, good will toward humanity, basic Americana ideals and/or any hope for our future.

    ***NOTE*** Try to, if at all possible; to objectively review/analyze the points made, while limiting your preconceived notions about Rand Paul, or his father Ron. Likely based on fear-mongering propaganda you've "heard" from; D.C. Establishment Politicians (who are either; scared of losing their 'Good Ole Boys' unrestricted & unchecked reign of absolute power, or are 110% compromised & controlled), and/or their MSM mouthpieces (I.e., CNN, FoxNews, MSNBC, etc..). To genuinely get inspired about Liberty, Freedom & the United States of America!!!

    "Wow, Rand Paul leaves no stone unturned, fearless"

    What's the biggest problem with candidates or politicians today, ok that's a loaded question but I can pick one thing, fear. They fear truth and fear crossing the line with their party. Not Rand Paul. He will not disappoint in this book. He is open and lays out his ideas and philosophy.
    Rand stands up to the establishment and tells you the new party he sees and projects to be coming alive today in the U.S.

    Highly recommend for voter ages and anyone not looking for status quo

    "I hope he is our next President!!!"

    Very well reasoned arguments for why we need to end the era of big government and return to principles of economic and personal freedoms. I hope he is our next president!!

    Story
    "Take This Hillary!"

    I am a South African and live in South Africa.
    I read earlier this year Hard Choices by Hillary Clinton.
    What a contrast. Hillary is a politician who talks in vague and general terms whilst Rand Paul focuses on the details.
    He digs up and gets to the root of the problem, which enables him to develop new strategies; Hillary Clinton offers nothing like that: she is bound to keep the status quo, she is superficial.
    Rand Paul hits hard with the truth: he shows his eye surgeon's skills. Hillary finds difficult to tell the truth (e.g. Benghazi and personal email server).
    Hillary Clinton is a Waffler. Rand Paul is an Action Man.
    If I was American, I would not hesitate a second to support Rand Paul as a presidential candidate.
    He has the make-up to be and will be a Great president.
    God bless America.
    Good luck Rand!

    "Wonderful inspiration and insight into politics"

    I love this book! It was a great read to show that both sides of the isle can work together, if they choose to. Also, it shows what will happen if they don't start doing it more often. Kudos to you Senator Paul, and all of this coming from a registered Democrat

    "Great Listen! Love it!"

    It takes you briefly through his life, then straight to the talking points! Would recommend to anyone wanting to learn more about Rand other than what you have read online!

    "Stand with Rand!"
    If you could sum up Taking a Stand in three words, what would they be?

    Detailed, Truthful. Compelling.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The details of policies that need to be changed.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not running to war at every turn and how US intervention in matters that are none of our business have come back to bit us.

    Giving tax money back to poor communities so they can prosper.


    Any additional comments?

    Rand Paul is the closest to the constitution. He's not a member of the "establishment" and it's clear. The books highlights it. His beliefs and philosophy are really just common sense.

    Story
    "Substance - not hype, not hyperbole. Will make you think!"

    Every day our society seems more and more divided. It seems that every election, every law, every SCOTUS ruling results in more and more polarization. But it doesn't have to be that way.

    Dr. Paul had poured his thoughts, his passion and compassion into digging deep into what divides us and what ultimately can bring us together. He talks honestly about the real causes of our divisions both from GOP and Democratic leadership. He offers real solutions that are thought provoking and amazingly full of common sense.

    Both GOP and Democrat establishments in Washington will undoubtedly attack these ideas because they take away from their power and give power back to the people. But, if you are like me, a person utterly sick of the politics and dogma of division that permeates our society -- then I highly recommend reading or listening to this book. I guarantee that no matter what side of the aisle you favor, you will learn something new and challenge some things you believe.

    A great book and a superb job of reading and production.

    I stand with Rand!

    Story
    "A sensible change in government"

    Rand Paul outlines his ideas for a government that would return to sensible fiscal policies and has a concrete way toward balancing the budget in five years. He has a proven record of working across the aisle on a variety of issues. He has reached out to groups that have been ignored by the Republican Party for many years. He advocates a much simpler tax plan and doing away with all corporate welfare. He is for a strong defense but not necessarily jumping into every conflict around the world. We have often gotten involved in wars that ended up hurting the people we were trying to help. He advocates restructuring our criminal justice system so that minor offenders who are nonviolent are not imprisoned for ridiculous lengths of time and can be restored to their communities and families and get back their voting rights over time. The drug war has disproportionately affected inner city minority communities and he wants to rectify this injustice. That has been a major factor in wrecking inner-city families by locking up large numbers of black men.
