Dr. Rand Paul (born January 7, 1963) is the conservative junior United States Senator from Kentucky. Rand is pro-life, a paleolibertarian and is emerging as a movement conservative. Unlike many politicians of both major political parties, Rand Paul supports sharply reducing the size of government.

In 2010, he won the Republican primary after defeating moderate candidate Trey Grayson by a landslide. Despite intense opposition by liberals and the lamestream media, Rand Paul then won by an overwhelming margin first against a RINO Republican favored by the Establishment, and then against Democrat Jack Conway in the 2010 Midterm Election. This was the seat formerly held by Jim Bunning, one of the greatest conservative sports stars, who endorsed Paul in Republican primaries.

Rand Paul's father is Ron Paul. Rand Paul was not[1] named after the objectivist and libertarian author Ayn Rand.

March 2013, Rand led a filibuster of Obama's CIA nomination John Brennan due to the fact that the administration was unwilling to forbid ordering drone targeting of Americans on American territories, in violation of the 5th Amendment. A month of letter writings without a reply and March 6th testimony from Attorney General Eric Holder prompted the filibuster. A number of GOP Senators joined him including Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Mike Lee, among others and one Democrat Senator. A vote on a non-binding statement clarifying that Obama shall not kill Americans with drone warfare was denied by Democrats in the Senate.
