Buying politcal capital

by selling your integrity will not be in anyone's long term interest. Ron Paul would easily be elected president in 2016, without (because of not) selling out, were he 20 years younger. Rand, on the other hand, could probably get the GOP nomination, but would have a tough time winning the general election, because to Democrats and Independents he comes across as an unprincipled, Republican Hack. He is not following the course of his father, and his efforts will suffer as a result.
