"So what is the contrast? Rand's endorsement of Romney will have no effect on the victory or loss for Romney over Obama. It only has an effect on us and how we deal with it. If that is what Rand has to do to become the leader in the Senate, then so be it. This gives senators the cover to work with him."

all of this is a waiting game now.

perhaps that's the most frustrating part of all.

I believe those who have the most uneasiness with Rand's recent development, aside from the legitimate questions regarding having neocons like Trygve Olson who by all account is still an interventionist, with the Paul family inner advisory core, are those of us who clearly see the utterly clearly mathematical inevitability of a looming currency collapse at the Fed.Res.'s current trajectory.

So, if one accepts the above premise, the question becomes is it worth it to play political games as if the current political paradigm is what will still exist from a few months to within the next two years? many us aren't so sure at current rate if there will even be a republic to speak of.

Nor, is Rand doubling down publicly with the dying neocon RINO faction within the GOP who are dying not only in influence but by nature of their age, often literally dying off, vs. the more vibrant, enthusiastic, growing, young, ACTIVIST base of the R3VOLution that his own father started, seem like a smart move.

who knows how this would all pan out.

Even with Doctor Paul as President Paul, I did not expect to see him avert a collapse, per se, but more of a sane Captain who will guide the ship through toxic waters before the ship bottoms out and steer it back to dry dock to have a full structural refitting and set sail again, with a de facto Austrian economist at the helm vs. political hacks, puppets, and utter imbeciles.

so who knows.

even in the immediate interim, until Doc addresses us on this issue, and what the political landscape will look like post-Tampa, no one can be certain if Rand's decision is the right one for him, for our movement, and Dr. Paul himself.

What he should've EXPECTED was the firestorm he would have created with such announcement. If all the Iago's fluttering about his ears actually convinced that we the R3VOL would simply fall in line, both Rand nor his crew haven't got the slightest clue what's going on here.

I believe THAT dynamic is the one that those of us who most vociferously challenge Rand' current play, is what we have an issue with.

but, as I've stated, it's all a waiting game till Tampa. Thus the angst, the gnawing in anticipation...
