I'm thinking

"American Soil" was made the issue because It was something achievable. Was it what we would have liked, no but like you said Rand would have filibustered the 2013 season and got nothing if he was trying to get Obama to say what he already did was illegal. By saying American soil he got a response and I think most importantly respect from other senate members, media and some Americans that might not know who Rand Paul is. You always have to remember most of the nation are not Constitutionalists, or Libertarians. We have to take the victories where we can and build on them, people are coming around.

I've had more friends and family ask me about Rand after the filibuster then I ever did Ron Paul. The media had already convinced them that he was a kook. In fact on more than one occasion at family get together I had someone read my Ron Paul shirts and ask me, "Isn't that the kooky guy they are always talking about?" Rand can't give the media any ammunition if he is going to help grow the liberty movement. Truth bombs are awesome but he has to know when he can get away with dropping them.

The bold effort the present bank had made to control the government ... are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it-Andrew Jackson
