That was brilliant, fishy.

Liberty will flourish only from the bottom up. Electing a POTUS to force our version (the only version, really) of liberty on the clueless masses is the same strategy as forcing socialism on them. They have to learn for themselves that government is not the answer to any social problem. Ron knew it, but he spent decades studying. Rand's aspirations of becoming POTUS do not seem like a wise idea in this respect. I am glad Marc expressed this in such a convincing and gentle fashion. I have been trying to say it but I am a bit rough around the edges. That is why I am here though - to practice the art of gentle teaching (not something that comes easy to me).
