Politician vs. Statesman

Rand Paul is a politician, Ron Paul is a statesman. This has been readily apparent all along. A true statesman is an exceedingly rare thing and it makes no sense to revile Rand for being unequal to his father. The Liberty movement will benefit from clever and wily politicians like Rand. Think of restoring the Republic like building a house; Ron Paul is the master builder/architect and Rand is one of many laborers sawing and hammering away. The key thing to remember is that ours is a MASSIVE task. This campaign is just the very beginning. We can't afford to waste time with the infighting and friendly fire. Just because Rand has endorsed Romney doesn't mean a damn thing. Instead of criticizing Rand, let's focus our ire on the corrupt establishment bosses who thwarted Ron Paul in state after state.

One of the penalties of refusing to participate in politics, is to be governed by inferiors ~ Plato
