And he lost because they were afraid his ideas

might actually wake people up (which they did). So Rand should do and say everything like his father? It didn't work for his father and it won't work for Rand. I believe this was Ron's plan all along. He knew his long time political beliefs would not allow him to win and I believe he was setting the stage for Rand. Rand came in with minimal mainstream political baggage and an army of Ron Paul followers waiting to jump on board. Those who say anything short of Ron is unacceptable will leave but those who understand the need to be in the fight for the long term will stay and help. Our liberty was extracted over several decades and it will take several decades to get it back peacefully. If you believe things should and will turn around immediately then get ready to go to war and I mean a real shooting war.
