I think it HAS gotten us far.

The liberty movement has grown (from nothing to something), but more importantly the people waking up to it are fervent promoters of it. This wouldn't happen if the movement was founded on shakier ground. I speak a bit metaphisically here, but what I mean is, how can we support a liberty minded representative (like Rand) if he has a foreign policy that ultimately undermines people's sovereignty in their countries? You wouldn't want a foreign country occupying your soil or exercising "containment" over you. It's the golden rule. I didn't start watching Ron Paul because he was wishy-washy with liberty. He had sound consistent principles (even when it wasn't popular with the mob). And guess what? It is becoming mainstream. And if this was founded on BS rhetoric, this movement would have burnt out long ago.
