I think you guys are assuming a lot...

...about Rand from very little information. I don't like the vote either, but that one vote doesn't define the guy. That one vote doesn't mean he is just some neocon war monger. I'm not giving the guy a free pass just because of his last name, but I've seen far more from Rand that I like, and that one crappy vote doesn't completely destroy him for me. I'd bet a large percent of Ron's supporters wouldn't have even thought about the negative effects of sanctions unless Ron talked about it so much, and if not for Ron, they wouldn't even think about it.
There are a few things even Ron comprimises on that I'm not all that stoked about, but nothing that destroys him in my eyes. We are all different people and Rand is obviously not Ron, but he is young, and I'd just say that one vote his first year in the Senate doesn't automatically mean he has abandoned his father's principles.

Free market capitalism isn't right for America because it works better. It's right because it's free (and it works better).
