Understood...

...and appreciated.

I can see no reason for down-voting my comments for the substance of it, e.g., advocating an equal skeptical assessment and using a constitutional yardstick to measure all elected officials, regardless of 'party'.

I must conclude that it was my reference to Lil' Rand, which caused the emotive reaction, thus my 'Cult of Rand' assessment is borne out, once again.

The thread was illustrative, to be sure. Thanks for posting it.
