There are a lot of people here attacking anyone who criticizes Rand Paul, even when the criticism is justified. Many people blindly support whatever Rand does and excuse "playing the game" of "getting his hands dirty" as the ends justify the means. The danger is not from people who have a set of standards or morals that they do not waiver from. The most dangerous thing for the liberty movement, in my opinion, is the group of people who don't think independently and critically. It is these blind followers who will allow a large group of the liberty movement to be co-opted into supporting a corrupt system that is the antithesis of liberty.
We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.
-C. S. Lewis
