Dear Rand

Dear Rand,

I am one of a growing number of people who believe that you could more effectively spread the message of liberty. I hope you will try to understand my reasoning.

Ron once said “Ideas are very important to the shaping of society. In fact, they are more powerful than bombings or armies or guns. And this is because ideas are capable of spreading without limit. They are behind all the choices we make. They can transform the world in a way that governments and armies cannot. Fighting for liberty with ideas makes more sense to me than fighting with guns or politics or political power. With ideas, we can make real change that lasts.” and I believe it is correct.

When you softened rhetoric on politically sensitive issues or endorsing a bottom feeder you compromise the idea of liberty. This is fighting for liberty through political power, not idea's. This is coercive intervention of the truth, and just like coercive government intervention into the economy always hurts it, this coercion hurts the r3LOVution. It's always perceived that the interventions will help, and I'm sure it seems like gaining political power will help the movement, but when it's done by compromising the message it predictable does not. You just need to really trust the message, and let the truth guide your actions and the results will be revolutionary. Just like the prosperity of an unhindered market.

Please consider being larger than politics.

For Liberty,


If you have any suggestions and/or could help me get this hand delivered I would appreciate it.

In light of rands recent comments,

President isn't the top of the food chain. If he tries to make a change, they'll JFK him. And all his masterfull game playing will be for not.

Ideas change things, not hero worship.

Rand said previously: "Only one Paul runs at a time." for Pres

"Only one Paul runs (in a Presidential campaign) at a time."

This election cycle is not over. Rand needs to honor his word and not endorse another person nor ingratiate himself with another for the possible furtherance of his own career. He may even be setting himself up for VP ? Although it is not the Presidential slot, this is, in spirit, usurping his father's momentum and not standing by his words.

I think Rand needs to think deeply about this moral, or at least ethical lapse.

"I think Rand needs to think deeply about this moral, or at least ethical lapse."

This is exactly what I'm trying to explain to him. on top of that I think its ineffective. I was trying to explain how the truth would provide a more positive outcome too.

I'm a little puzzled why the down votes.


ITS OVER!! RON ADMITTED HE CANNOT WIN! Ron Paul knows exactly how many delegates he will have. You know nothhing.
