I understand what you are saying

and I tend to agree with you. My question, however, is why would you not support Rand in 2016? Assuming that you are right, that the US must fall for people to wake up, wouldn't it be preferable to have someone like Rand in office rather than Hillary/McCain et al types when it happens?
I don't think that we are the only ones aware of the fact that 'this cannot go on.' I am much more inclined to believe that there are others not only anticipating a collapse, but counting on it and they are NOT sympathetic to libertarian ideas. <--Understatement of the year.
In my mind, we would be in a much better position when the SHTF to have someone like Rand in office to help put the pieces back together with liberty being the #1 priority. In times of duress, sadly, people will still look to the Government (or whatever remains of it.)

"When I say liberty I do not simply mean what is referred to as 'free enterprise.' I mean liberty of the individual to think his own thoughts and live his own life as he desires to think and to live..." - Robert A. Taft
