    :eusa_clap::eusa_clap: Boy is this rare in Washington.


    Keeping his oath to the public trust Rand Paul returned money he didn’t need to the U.S. Treasury:

    “I ran to stop the reckless spending. And I ran to end the damaging process of elected officials acting as errand boys, competing to see who could bring back the biggest check and the most amount of pork,” Paul said at a news conference in Louisville, where he presented taxpayers with a massive mock check for $500,000.

    “I hope this sets an example for the rest of government – at all levels,” he added. “We can carry out our duties in a fiscally responsible way. Government can be both smart and efficient. We are proving that – and trying to convince the rest of Washington.”

    Yes, let's give theatrics exactly what they deserve. Applause. That's about it.

    I think the Ron Paul campaign is taking care of that as we speak.
