Senator Rand Paul does not endorse many candidates. His America First mentality means that he is very particular about which Republicans get his coveted endorsement. He will not endorse those who will continue the Washington DC trend of bloating government, pushing endless wars, or embracing the Neo-Marxist doctrines of the radical left.
This is why his endorsement of Congressional candidate Robby Starbuck is such a big deal. Running in Tennessee, Starbuck is an outsider who has never held political office. But his experience in Hollywood and his embrace of conservative principles have helped him achieve strong credibility on the right. That combined with his family’s escape from Socialist Cuba gives him insights into what to do and what NOT to do in government.
“I don’t endorse many people for Congress, but I’m endorsing Robby Starbuck because he’s one of the good guys,” Paul said in Starbuck’s first campaign video. “He’s one of the guys who really will go to Washington and do as he says. He’ll vote for smaller government. He’ll vote against the endless wars.”
I’m running for Congress because freedom is under threat. My family had to flee Cuba when socialists destroyed it. I won’t let them do the same thing in 🇺🇸. I’ll fight them, the Big Tech cartel and the swamp. I’m proud to be endorsed by @RandPaul! Donate: https://t.co/FGvUL6PziQ pic.twitter.com/n2c0n5Lfcm

Paul has been one of the few vocal Senators willing to go against the Establishment in their relentless pursuit of bigger government. Starbuck has embodied the same mentality through his work as a filmmaker and political pundit. But he draws his concern for the direction of America from his personal history.
“Robby knows about socialism first-hand,” Paul continued. “His family escaped socialism in Cuba. We can’t let socialism come back to our country.”
It takes a solid commitment to American exceptionalism and the pursuit of liberty for the individual to earn Rand Paul’s endorsement. Robbie Starbuck plans to bring those tenets to DC and serve TN-05 as their Congressman.
YouTube, Spotify, and other Big Tech platforms are taking Freedom First Network down
It’s no secret we speak our minds and bring on guests who do the same. That’s one of the biggest reasons we put together the Freedom First Network in the first place. There are far too many news outlets, including so-called “conservative” media companies, who are so beholden to Big Tech that they temper their perspectives at best and outright coverup the truth at worst. Many, as you all know, will blatantly lie in order to maintain the narrative that supports the radical agenda taking over much of the United States.
We have had our YouTube channel taken down. Many of our shows have been suppressed or removed by Facebook and Twitter. Spotify banned one of our shows completely from their platform. Google hates us. We’ve even been censored by some of the smaller players like Medium, Transistor, and Captivate. But we stand behind our reporting and perspectives and we refuse to bow down to Big Tech tyranny for the sake of pageviews or video plays.
This isn’t the easiest road to travel, especially for a media company that is so new. We launched Freedom First Network in 2020 to fight against the very censorship that we’re seeing so widespread today. We have found great homes for our content on freer speech platforms like Rumble and we’re putting our best efforts forward into building our presence on Locals. Nevertheless, we cannot do it alone. We need help.
One of the things cofounders Jeff Dornik and JD Rucker agreed to from the start was to never be the pawns of companies that do not embrace our worldview. Finding advertisers and affiliates is easy; we receive requests by companies wanting to be pushed on our shows every day. But it’s important to us that we’re promoting companies, services, and products that are beneficial to maintaining a Freedom First stance in America. As a result, we do not take on sponsors easily. We would rather rely on our own products like Freedom First Coffee and the support of our wonderful viewers, listeners, and readers.
Those who want to support us and help keep the fight for America’s future moving forward can do so by donating through our Locals page. There, you can donate monthly or one-time. Some have told us to use Patreon or GoFundMe, but both of those platforms have demonstrated a hatred for free speech. Locals does not. They embrace it. We encourage everyone to join us on Locals, but donations are greatly appreciated as well. We do not have day jobs. Our fight for freedom is a full-time gig.
Please feel free to reach out to us through our contact form. It goes directly to our founders, so if you’re interested in getting involved, investing, sponsoring, or even bringing a show to our network, let us know. May God Bless the United States of America!
