Vinceableworld raises important points

Rand Paul is not the ideological straight shooter like his dad. Rand is more like a typical politician playing the political game, so without the millions of citizens standing up for the Constitution and Bill of Rights, Rand many not even have attempted a filibuster. So this was a small victory for "we the people", in that we were able to hold the line in spite of losing some ground. But like vinceableworld says, we must start gaining ground or one day we'll lose the war.

Rand did prove something though,i.e., taking a stand on principle, in the face of great opposition, can be a force for good in the world. Check out this post, "Rand Paul: One person can make a difference" (Rand Paul: One person can make a difference) (Fast and Furious hearing)
