Comment: Rand

(See in situ)


Ron is an idealist whereas Rand is a realist. Ron showed us our [ideal] destination whereas Rand is taking [realistic] steps to get us there. Sometimes I live in this utopian fantasy where all of the brainwashed masses fall in love with liberty, a Ron Paul is elected in a rigged system, and all of the necessary changes we need magically fall into place. But this is not reality. Rand learned from his father that Americans are simply not ready for full-blown liberty. Decades of cancerous government growth, power, indoctrination, and corruption have set in. Meaningful changes are going to require a lot of time, education, work, and "smaller victories" -- particularly at local levels.
