(NaturalNews) Most politicians like to talk the talk, but only a few back it up with action and actually take a stand. When Rand Paul took the Senate floor for nearly 13 hours in March 2013, he did more than just talk. Senator Paul stood up against and brought awareness to the President's unconstitutional authority to indefinitely detain and/or assassinate American citizens on US soil without a trial. As Rand Paul brought light to these treacherous provisions in the National Defense Authorization Act, people from all around the country took notice. Here was a senator who was not going to stand by idly and let the Executive branch of government have unlimited powers that trample the Fourth and Fifth Amendments of the Bill of Rights. Here was a man who understands the importance of a republic and the rule of law.

Paul understands history and the trajectory of ideas

Most politicians pledge allegiance to a political party, but sometimes one of them stands out because they are willing to consistently defend the Bill of Rights. It's easy for politicians to favor lobbyists and corporate interests, but once in a while, someone comes along to defend liberty and justice for all.

It's these principles of limited government that shine on in the very nature of the humanitarian optometrist from Kentucky -- Senator Rand Paul. In his newest book, Taking a Stand: Moving Beyond Partisan Politics to Unite America, Paul brings people and ideas together using common-sense solutions. What's interesting about Paul is that he understands history and how the trajectory of ideas relates to current events. He has a unique gift of relating history to the present, to bring vision to America's future.

Paul understands that compassion comes through freedom, not government coercion

One of the best parts about Rand Paul is that he is consistent and leads by example, not by force. One of the highlights of the book is when Dr. Paul described his medical mission work in Guatemala. Giving cataract surgeries to those who could barely see, Dr. Paul and his mission team helped numerous people regain their eyesight. Paul is a living testament that compassionate care comes through freedom and not through the redistribution of resources by government coercion and force.

Paul consistently shows how government power and control is at the heart of America's problems today. He stands against the government coercion that controls a child's public education. He is opposed to the federal program that divides communities in fear by putting weapons of war in the hands of local police.

He has a plan to eliminate the discriminatory IRS tax code and keep SWAT teams from killing innocent people. For example, he explains how the IRS now punishes and fines people who choose not to buy specific products like health insurance.

Paul works to reform discriminatory criminal justice system

For Paul, it's not about party politics. It's about people. On several occasions, he has reached across the aisle to change laws that negatively affect minority groups. For example, he is working with Senator Cory Booker to reform the nation's criminal justice system. Paul sees how the justice system unintentionally discriminates against African Americans living in poor communities. Paul introduced a bill to expunge the records of nonviolent felons so they can have a fair shot at getting a job and moving forward with their life.

Taking a Stand also explores Americans' fight against the NSA's illegal spy program. After the NSA was caught stealing and exploiting private information of all Americans without warrant, Rand Paul took the lead in stopping it. He proves that dragnet surveillance with no warrant makes the nation less safe and less free.

In Taking a Stand, readers will gain a better understanding of Senator Paul's background in medicine and how his philosophies can better the nation's healthcare system. Readers will learn about Paul's love for nature growing up in Kentucky and how the free market can make the environment cleaner. Readers will also find out more about Paul's peaceful and strong foreign policy vision and his understanding of the nation's precarious debt situation.
