I think many of us get irritated with Rand because he's not a purist like his dad. But it is those areas of compromise that almost give him a chance at actually being accepted by the mainstream of the GOP.
I wish he were an exact clone of Ron Paul, but on the issues that really matter, he comes very close. He embraces the overall ideas of limited government, Austrian economics, and liberty -- and he could have a real shot at the White House.
If he keeps addressing issues like this, he'd be an ideal candidate for 2016.
