I'm more on Rand's side than not, I don't love everything he says, but I don't think he's "the enemy" by any means. Best Senator we have in my estimate, but that doesn't mean there's not room for improvement.

But jeez people, calm down. We all want pretty close to the same thing.

Calling people "zombies" or trying to suggest that they support everything the GOP does or some such tripe just because they support what they think Rand is trying to do is absurd.

So too is the idea that anyone who objects to what Rand does is "killing the movement" or anything other than sharing their opinions. In almost all cases, I understand them entirely, I just don't share their DEGREE of outrage and disapprove of the way they express it. This doesn't mean they're traitors to the cause, or that they're socialists, or progressives, or neo-cons, or closet Libertarian Party supporters, or Martians.

We're all on the same side here folks, just with some different ideas. We're SUPPOSED to be the smart rational folks who use reason instead of name calling. That's why I object to name calling and any other sort of "Oboomya" or that sort of silly names. It's dehumanizing and wrong, honestly.

Use your words folks, but first use your brains. We're all here for Liberty.
