Agreed...

If we want perfect to be the enemy of the good... fine. I guess this means I have to campaign for Romney in '12... because I can't find an ideolgically pure canidate other than Ron Paul. I mean there is only one Ron Paul, so I might as well vote for the next guy. Hmm, all of a sudden, ya know Mike Huckabee seems SO nice, maybe I'll vote for him. Or maybe Obama, I mean nobody is perfect but he's "trying really hard"... Yeah, better I support a 100% sellout and fraud than somebody like Rand Paul...

Thanks guys! This thread has really cleared my head. Grayson/McConnell/McCain/Bush '10,'12! Ahh, everything just feels better all of the sudden, when I don't have to think for myself or worry. After all, I've got other people I can vote for to do that for me! What a relief! Here I was worried about the economy, the bailouts, everything... And it is SO obvious, I mean these guys "know" what they are doing! WHEW!!! Who needs Rand Paul! We've got Grayson, and McConnell doing just fine. I think I actually feel better now, that I am waking up, FROM "waking up!" Grayson '10, Grayson '10!!! Where's my checkbook???

Oh hell, I'll just wait for the next stimulus. I mean hey, it's the least I could do. I mean Grayson supports the stimulus, so I should at least, contribute some back to him, just to be fair. After all you gotta support the guy who will give you something from somebody else, for absolutely nothing! Hell with Ayn Rand... Bernanke should write a book. Clearly he knows what he's doing, I mean it's not like we're in a depression or anything. Didn't you hear, this is only a "Great Recession", See!!! The status quo IS saying us from catastrophe! Yippee!!!

Like it or not it is not these opinions that are relevant to winning in a closed Republican Kentucky primary. Rand doesn't have to meet your litmus test just yet, he has to get elected by conservative Republican Southern Baptists for crying out loud. You guys are spoiled by Ron Paul, but Ron Paul is an exception, not the rule. All politics is LOCAL!!! We all can't live in a libertarian district or state. You have to run with a strategy that fits your electorate or LOSE! If losing is acceptable, then Ron Paul's campaign staff didn't fail him, they did what they were supposed to do. Nobody is ever going to agree with you 100 percent. You are still elected to represent THEM (the constituents), more so than yourself. This is a primary, I'd save this reaction for when he's actually in office. A closed primary is just that... he's not trying to appeal to this element, he's trying to appeal to the Kentucky Republican primary voter... Can't anybody see that???
