Evil is a relative term. You and I could go round-and-round all day on Rand Paul and go nowhere. For example, Ron Paul and I both agree that sanctions on Iran are an "act of war" and I believe acts of war are evil. No doubt you and I will disagree on this point.
Thus, if Rand is the "best we have" it simply is not good enough for ME. That's all I'm trying to say. I hope you can respect and accept that just as I do about your opinion of Rand.
Also, I highly disagree with your "All or nothing is going to get you nothing" position.
RON Paul was/is my version of "ALL". He met my relative standard for President just as he did with you or you wouldn't be here. It's like this... I wrote-in Ron Paul for 2008 & 2012. I was going to either vote for Ron Paul (ALL) or not vote (NOTHING). And you (just like the Romney supporters I mentioned earlier) want to tell me I came away with NOTHING!? REALLY!!!??? ARE YOU SURE ABOUT THAT!!!???
If you will not see that than I'm truly very sorry.
