I pray

For Rand Paul, not because I think he is a treacherous individual, but because he is playing a game that few have won. Buchanan played trying to funnel neocons to a position that would allow for a more proper role in government, and was nearly sucked in with them, twice endorsing them before he finally gave up and left politics after an unsucessful political run. Ronald Reagan was absorbed into the neocon sphere by his second term. It is much easier to give them the cold shoulder, though it is no a formula for immediate political success. It is much easier to increase government powers than decrease them. I hope Rand is up to the task.
