Why does Rand think "something needed to be done"? He doesn't explain that well at all. Is he protecting the Constitution or the country or the always mysterious "US interests? The problem with the whole government is that there is a wide spread belief that something must be done.
To paraphrase an old saying, I've met Ron Paul and Rand is no Ron Paul. Ron should figuratively take Rand to the woodshed. Rand is politically more like Demint than his dad.
