You're welcome to criticise Rand Paul's shortcomings or sellouts--count me in agreement here--but how do you KNOW what Rand Paul's chances are more than three years from now?
Your tea leaves are just as wilted, and your crystal ball just as cracked as mine and everyone elses is!
I don't know if there will be anyone better to support (I hope so) and nobody here knows if this country's government will even exist in its current form by 2016. There are too many uncertainties to judge, and we may do better by working to grow in the short term, focusing on local, municipal, State, and (for 2014)Congressiona and Gubernatorial elections. This includes, of course, covering ourselves from neocon treachery within the GOP (or Libertarian Party) as well.
PEACE AND FREEDOM!!
