Ron Paul for President's picture

After much consideration, it is the same as my gut reaction.

Dr. Paul does not go along to get along. He votes the constitution and builds coalitions when possible, otherwise, he has gone alone.

He has been unwavering in his message of returning to the constitution and accurately predicting the housing bubble, etc...

He advocates peace. He has stated before in speeches that we all do what we think will push the cause of liberty forward peacefully.

So many of us support him for these reasons. Our support is leverage and the establishment knows and fears this.

Rand is the opposite.

For the reasoning above, Rand made a poor choice. He is never going to have a positive relationship with the establishment much less the upper hand. He now has lost a good deal of support from those who support Dr. Paul and the establishment knows he has lost leverage. They are the bullies. They are going to tell him what he can or not do.

He has now assumed the position of so many who will have no choice but, to compromise.
