Comment: Shortsighted

(See in situ)


You're absolutely right that the establishment owns the media, and that therefore Rand won't likely win the Republican nomination, but you're ignoring:

1) Increasingly, people are turning away from the MSM, and turning to the internet. Who knows what the landscape may look like in 2 or 3 years? Perhaps the MSM will have markedly less clout then, and Rand could rise.

2) You're placing WAY too much stock in two issues (immigration and right-to-life) that aren't the be all and end all of most voters' checklists.

3) Who CARES whether or not Rand actually wins? It's about changing the culture. That HAS to happen first. And, toward that end, Rand's campaign will be a GREAT investment. Look at all Ron accomplished in changing the culture with little help from the media.
