Comment: Rand's strategy was smart

Rand's strategy was smart

I think what Rand did was smart. His goal was to open lines of communication. From the comments Nick Gillespie recorded after the speech, it's clear he did that. He opened the dialog and now has his foot in the door to expand the dialog. It's a beautiful start. He has to develop this new audience and lead them to where he wants them to go. Blunt isn't going to do it. Everything at once isn't going to do it.

If Rand had gone into a rant about government over-reach and how it's creating victim mentality in the black community, he would have lost the argument and wasted the opportunity to start a dialog.

We ALL want the dialog to center around our liberties, but let's not drown the baby by pushing him off the board into the deep end.
