In retrospect, Rand Paul's 2010 victory was the worst thing that could have happened to the liberty movementSubmitted by empireisalwaysevil on Wed, 09/05/2012 - 00:23
A Pyrrhic victory (/ˈpɪrɪk/) is a victory with such a devastating cost that it carries the implication that another such victory will ultimately lead to defeat. Someone who wins a "Pyrrhic victory" has been victorious in some way; however, the heavy toll or the detrimental consequences negates any sense of achievement or profit.
In retrospect, this is exactly what Rand Paul's victory in 2010 was.
But for Rand Paul's 2010 victory, Trgyve Olson and Jesse Benton would never have met.
But for Rand Paul's 2010 victory, Olson and Benton would not have insinuated themselves into key positions in the Ron Paul 2012 campaign organization.
But for Rand Paul's 2010 victory, the establishment would not have gained the lever it needed to persuade Ron Paul through these key advisors to unilaterally disarm politically, at the moment when our nation needed him most, and the establishment was most exposed and ripe for the taking.
But for Rand Paul's 2010 victory, our country's present and near future would not have been sacrificed for the sake of his now increasingly delusional 2016 political ambitions.
We wanted liberty. We wanted constitutional government. We wanted to restore America NOW, but all of these goals were subordinated by a subverted campaign organization to cynical political calculations of what might best give substance to the mirage that is the prospective Rand Paul 2016 Republi[CAN] presidential campaign.
And, with that exchange, we have lost it all. Thanks Rand, Jesse and Trgyve. Whatever you think you might have gained by this, we of the "fringe" (as Jesse likes to call us) know that you've been had....and so have we.
