I don't think...

...Rand has killed the Liberty movement (in many ways, from the people I come across in my daily life, I'd say it's gaining strength) -- his 'ranger' appearances have just frightened some of us Liberty hobbits on occasions into doubting his intentions or purposes. Time will tell if he can remain on course with the purity of a Strider/Aragorn who will gain our trust, ward off the ringwraiths, expel the corrupt Steward from the throne, refuse the temptations of the Ring and instead protect the Fellowship's quest to destroy it -- unlike a Boromir, who would take the Ring back to Gondor to 'use it for good' and be destroyed by it instead.
