Comment: Good question. Depends on how

(See in situ)


Good question. Depends on how

Good question. Depends on how severe the hijacking is in the first place.

I always knew that some measure of politics would be a necessity in order to advance the cause. Regarding Rand, it is extremely unlikely that his filibuster wasn't planned down to the minute. In politics EVERYTHING needs to be coordinated, cause the Republican party doesn't like surprises.

But playing these kind of games comes with a risk. You'll start believing that fooling people becomes a necessary act in order to advance the cause. And soon, you start believing that your cause IS the cause of the people.

If it's done within limits, that's OK. But the problem is that politicians usually go over the limit. Which is why I sincerely hope that Rand knows what game he's playing.
