I have no problem with you...

…calling Rand on any "inconsistencies". I encourage it.

But you left out the context - that the essay was riddled with powerful libertarian statements. The "inconsistencies" were obviously included to appease the establishment.

Ron also pulled his punches in '08 and '12.

If Rand dialed up the 'libertarian-rhetoric' meter to a 10, he'd be out of the picture. I'm more than ok with him exhibiting an 7.5 (with nearly everyone else in Washington at a 2) in return for being taken seriously.

It's *our* job to dial up a 10. For him to do so all day and night would be self-defeating.
