A Rand Paul momentSubmitted by tog2476 on Tue, 05/24/2011 - 23:46
Rand Paul held up the vote on the Unpatriot Act it seems today. I want to emphasize that I do not hold it against anyone here if they questioned his intentions. We need to question intentions, if we don't, we will get cooked. I was one who did not because, I believed no son of a man who's father has devoted his whole career to fighting this machine, would work against him. My belief is that we can only push people to get elected, once they are in there is no control over them anymore. We must learn to let them do the job, and at some points we may not understand what in the hell they are doing, but we need to learn to let go after we get them there. We need to give our candidates space because we have no idea how the system works on a deeper level. We are the few, and in my opinion, we do what we can and keep moving to the next battle. If we get stuck on scrutinizing everything the people we help get elected, we will not make as much progress. We need to stick and move like a boxer does, throw the punch, and go to the next one. We should, and I emphasize should all learn from the Rand experience and get our candidates in and move to the next. Let them do the work they need to do once they land, let's keep moving unless our candidates get out of control, then we need to step in. Stick and move people, stick and move. Let's place them and then place the next one.
