Exactly

There is nothing to gain by fighting a losing public battle. There is everything to gain, in fighting things that are tangible and provable to John Q Public. Like TSA harassment, sending taxpayer money to people who hate us, unjustly imprisoning people for ridiculous non crimes like weed possession.

Likewise, in this recent interview, Rand is discussing where spending could be cut, and does like many politicians and cites small (few million dollars) programs with really nutty goals...this makes me cringe or roll my eyes, as I'm sure it does many of us, because we know this is peanuts in comparison to the welfare and warfare spending. But, it's smart politics, because it seems most people have the attention span of a goldfish and they don't want a dry lecture on serious topics, but talk about robotic squirrels and meth-addicted chimps catches their interest. If it gets vote for someone like Rand, who will tackle the real problems once in office, well then that's fine by me.
