By the same token

If you don't win and stick to your principles, what do you have?
Not a damn thing. A dead man with a speech and no gun is worth less than a man with a gun and principle in his mind. Just ask all the people throughout history who have died for their causes. It's not about dying for your cause, it's about making sure the other bastard dies for his.

I could care less if he says one thing and does another. As long as what he DOES is the right thing. If Rand has to lie, cheat, steal, borrow, and beg to advance liberty than I applaud him for doing what he has to do, to win.

I never really cared what Ron said when I found out about him. It's what his record showed, how he voted, how he stuck to the foundation of the Constitution and individual liberty that made me proud to be an American. When I saw someone who put his actions before his words, I felt that pride swell for the first time in my life, I'll never forget that as long as I live.
