Who knows if Paul is one of "them", I don't think so but you can't be sure, just like the whole OWS possibly being financed by a George Soros front

While you're right that Obama was announcing Change and Yes We Can in 2008 and his supporters were chanting with him, RP supporters were following RP
in 2008, you know, the 2nd time RP ran for POTUS. So there's that... And lets not forget that Obama being voted into POTUS was definitely based on his

Congress, he continues to refuse to sign up for the government pension that he would be entitled to in order to avoid receiving government money,
saying it would be "hypocritical and immoral."
Paul authors more bills than the average representative, such as those that impose term limits, or abolish the income tax or the Federal
Reserve; many do not escape committee review.
During March 2001, Paul introduced a bill to repeal the 1973 War Powers Resolution (WPR) and reinstate the process of formal declaration of war by
He also introduced "Sunlight Rule" legislation, which requires lawmakers to take enough time to read bills before voting on them, after the
Patriot Act was passed within 24 hours of its introduction.
Paul says his fellow members of Congress have increased government spending by 75 percent during the presidency of George W. Bush. After a
2005 bill was touted as "slashing" government waste, Paul wrote that it decreased spending by a fraction of one percent and that "Congress couldn't
slash spending if the members' lives depended on it." He said that during three years he had voted against more than 700 bills intended to expand
Paul was one of six Republicans to vote against the Iraq War Resolution, and (with Oregon representative Peter DeFazio) sponsored a resolution to
repeal the war authorization during February 2003. Paul's speech, 35 "Questions That Won't Be Asked About Iraq," was translated and published in
German, French, Russian, Italian, and Swiss periodicals before the Iraq War began.
