I am in the same boat as you.

I am in the same boat as you. The reason why its true, is that Rand is portrayed as an almost evangelical (dont ask me how) neo-con, even on par with McCain to most typical Indy's/moderate libs by the media. I convinced several friends who voted for O in 08 to vote for Ron in the primaries of 12. To a person they almost all share the above opinion of Rand.

However, the majority of my family who watch fox news and thought Ron was "out there," all love Rand.

The second group is much larger than the first.

I believe Carol Paul when she said Rand is smarter than Ron and she said that Ron would also say the same. Remember that he grew up at Ron's dinner table talking about Jefferson, Cleveland, Mises, and Hayek. Ron had to figure it all out on his own. Ron's stated intention was to spread ideas. I believe that Rand is an intentional "phase II," designed to win. It is important to remember this when evaluating Rand's actions. I don't know what he is doing, but Rand is becoming the favorite of the Republican Party, believe that.

Now all we have to do is make sure he picks different people to run the campaign.
