Im not trying to weasel out of anything.

I made it very clear I was talking about rhetoric, I've said it several times.

My original comment was about what his father campaigned on, what he said.

If I believe libertarianism's only use for politics is educational, why would I be talking about anything other than rhetoric?

Here's where I'm coming from: "The difference is that the abolitionist always holds high the banner of his ultimate goal, never hides his basic principles, and wishes to get to his goal as fast as humanly possible. Hence, while the abolitionist will accept a gradual step in the right direction if that is all that he can achieve, he always accepts it grudgingly, as merely a first step toward a goal which he always keeps blazingly clear." - Murray Rothbard

"The ironic thing is that Rand goes further than Ron when it comes to the income tax."

How is replacing the income tax with another tax, more radical than ending it and replacing it with nothing?
