Then there is the matter of conservative political practice. "Conservatives should be the party of judgment, not just of principles," he says. "Of course there are conservative principles—free markets, family values, a strong national defense—but those principles must be defended with the use of good judgment.

But just because you give ground on principle doesn't mean you're an opportunist."

There's nothing stealth about Rand. Either you will learn from him, and how to stay in the game, or your'e a cheerleader trying to tell the players how to win.. thanks.. and good luck doing it your way. When you gt a candidate that's not a Republican for congress, senate, please, let me know.
