Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Even though Ted Cruz was standing tall at his filibuster against Obamacare, he was also standing with the majority view. His views represent nothing new and most of the rest of the Republican party. When Rand had his filibuster he was challenging the Democrats AND the Republicans, who had voted FOR most of the policies he was filibustering against (NSA, spyfare, drones, etc). Ted Cruz deserves credit for joining Paul's filibuster but there is a major difference between the two. One is complacent within his party and the other represents action in a new direction.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Let's not forget that almost every President since the greatest one (George Washington in case you were wondering) has had speech writers. These people are often influenced by other sources throughout history, sometimes they are quoted, cited in footnotes, sometimes they are not. It's always better to cite your sources, especially now days, when the media is ready to pounce on anyone (especially someone on the right) that they believe may be guilty of GASP... plagiarism. And as we said before, Rand was NOT presenting these views as his own, he was using a movie to compare and contrast what is going on in today's politics, nor was he taking anything out of context, which is very important when it comes to plagiarism.
