I realize most Rand supporters think he is gaming the GOP- I have no reason to believe he is not gaming us. You are acting on faith and I prefer to act on the facts before me. You seem to believe they have special powers, I am pretty sure they are mere mortals and Rand may honestly believe his father is wrong on some issues and the 2 have learned to agree to disagree.
Understand this - my father and I NEVER talked politics. He believed I was a liberal, I believed he was a "warmongering Republican." Turns out we were both Libertarians - he was actually a pen-pal of Ayn Rand's for a number of years and worked with RP on Goldwater's campaign. I did not learn these things until he was dead. There is a deliberate effort to divide the generations ideologically, an effort so effective that people who agree may not even be able to see it.
And for what it is worth, I did win the only race I was involved in - my husband's campaign.
