“You know, come on down to a Tea Party, bring your Huey Long rhetoric- a chicken in every pot, a windmill in every … backyard. Bring it on down to the Tea Party; let’s have a discussion. Let’s bring it to the American public. The Tea Party’s been lectured about spending; who among you has voted against an appropriations bill?” –Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky, in a fiery speech on the floor of the United States Senate, April 14, 2011.
