To those dissing Rand Paul: Shame on youSubmitted by _DoMiNo_ on Mon, 08/27/2012 - 11:53
To the people belittling Rand Paul - shame on you. Get off of your high horse and give him a break... He's done more for the cause of liberty than any other politician (besides his father obviously).
Rand is the closest thing we have to carrying Ron Paul's torch, besides maybe Justin Amash. And I don't understand how you can respect Ron Paul yet throw dirt on his son.
Yes he endorsed Romney - get over it. It was the smart move considering that if he didn't, he wouldn't be a republican in good standing... And therefore wouldn't have as much influence to push pro-liberty legislation through the senate. He does this because in the long run it will benefit YOU AND ME, even though we turn around and spit vitriol towards him because of it.
Ron Paul has endorsed neo-cons (e.g. - Lamar Smith) running in Texas, but strategically speaking, it was the right thing to do so he deserves a pass. So don't be a hypocrite and abandon his son when he's forced to do the same. You can't expect to gain influence by burning bridges with all of your constituents.
And besides, if you only try to support politicians that are on par with the standard Ron Paul has set, then I guess you won't be supporting any politicians for the rest of your lifetime.
