Is anyone organizing an effort to hold Rand accountable?Submitted by Lbrty4u on Thu, 12/06/2012 - 00:11
I do not understand why so many people are blindly defending Rand Paul. He is not being consistent in his fight for Liberty. I applaud him for being the most Liberty minded voice in the Senate, but is that enough? He still seems to compromise the principles we hold dear. The same people out there who proudly proclaimed they would not vote for the lesser of two evils in the Presidential election, are the ones giving Rand a pass because he's the lesser of evils in the Senate. Why are we settling for Ron Paul-lite? Why aren't we demanding that anyone who wishes to represent the Liberty movement be completely consistent and stand strong on principle, not politics. Ron Paul set the bar high, but I don't think we should settle for those that fall short. Ron makes Rand look like a neocon. I personally have much more hope for Justin Amash than Rand. I'm not suggesting we abandon our support for Rand, but we must be careful not to be fooled. We must have high expectations for the leaders of our movement. If we settle for those who compromise, we will just end up with another Ronald Reagan...someone who can talk the talk but fails to consistently walk the walk. If we don't set the bar high, our revolution won't last long. Below is Rand's contact info. I have a feeling I'll get more complaints than him though...
