... he won't get support from either side.
The neocons will never trust him or like his ideas.
If the libertarians don't like or trust him, either, then he will not have enough support to get anywhere beyond one mostly meaningless term in the Senate.
Ron never got much legislation passed, but he has built one hell of a legacy for others to pick up where he left off.
so he must "play" as one (for now)...
about Rand. I am still waiting to see what happens, but I dropped the R from my designated Call Letter back to an L.
That said, I may be able to be convinced to vote for Rand and back him for Presidency. Anger is fading and responsible action mindedness is coming back. But, I am not quite sure he has the 'right stuff' quite yet. I can be convinced or led away from him still.

I honestly believe it is over for Rand with the liberty movement. It seems like about 20- 30% still support him, albeit only somewhat and almost always conditionally.
Principle is very important. Ron taught this, but Rand didn't listen and now will be taught the harshest lesson possible for a politician.
The problem is that he appears as wolf. If it walks like a wolf, talks like a wolf, and acts like a wolf, the it must be a wolf!
so that says ALOT from the get-go. Ron must have "approved" what his son is doing currently...
What ever the Father/Son "plans" are for the Liberty cause, it is between them.
I always say this...The Fight for Liberty against Tyranny is not a (short) trip...but a JOURNEY.
... Ron didn't stick around to listen to Rand's speech at the GOP convention in Tampa.
Rand stands on his own, good or bad. We can't assume he is the same as his dad. I'm not the same as my dad.
Rand is a grown man and stands on his own actions. Personally, I'm not against him, but I watch with a skeptical eye.
choice? Can you come up with a better "poison" against the Establishment/Duopoly "tyrannists" in power...
I sometimes think I catch a trace of disappointment when Ron is asked "What do you think of Rand?" but I can't swear to it. I have never heard a gushing, glowing "Oh, I am SO proud of him, he is just the person to carry my message forward."
Wait and see, we have time.
Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.
Reminds me of the time when there was an argument about whether liberty activists should clean up a bit before they try to reach tea partiers or if people should just be themselves and wear what they want. Then someone posted the video below. It completely cracked me up.
(Btw, this isn't a comment about political strategy. Just posting for fun.)
That was great!
Thanks for the laugh!
neo cons love him for is fake endorsement lol, how stupid and ignorant they are.
libertarians love him for his fake endorsement lol, how ....................they are.

Rand..(as Old English Sheepdog)?!
Great pic and I agree!
Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.
..although a sheep among the dogs is probably more accurate.
would be the most accurate.

Thanks for posting. The dog is herding the sheep, the sheep are the Repubs in Congress as I see it.
