This is NOT a hit piece

It is a piece about real politics. Rand Paul has a serious dilemma to deal with: a country full of people who want lower taxes and more benefits, more personal freedom for me but not for thee.

The writer is not saying that Rand is wrong, just that his politics runs counter to quasi socialist/fascist impulses of most voters.

He has an excellent point.

Where I differ with the writer is that I think Rand is a better politician than any 'libertarian' in recent memory. He has threaded the needle by keeping his rhetoric fairly mainstream (which alienates a lot of us libertarians) but voting pretty pure.

There is a lot of truth in this article. Pay attention. These are real barriers we (and Rand) will have to overcome.
