Pro-peace could be problematic for Rand

Unless humanity experiences a major global paradigm shift soon, the phrase "pro-peace" may be too vague and too little understood to be an asset in a political campaign at this time.

Don't take my comment the wrong way. I have been working on the challenge of building a model of worldwide peace for 30 years. I would be enthralled to learn that a presidential candidate runs on a platform of peace.

Here is one political (and ideological) problem with the term as it stands today:

"You say you are pro-peace, Senator Paul. What is your definition of peace?"

How would you answer this question? Would the answer get out the vote?
