Let's not forget who we're dealing with here WGS! Just by virtue of getting in Congress takes a great deal of compromising on the part of one's principles, even among those we favor the most, such as Ron and Rand Paul.
If not, they wouldn't be where they are today. Which brings us back to why we have to throw all our concentration and support behind the A3P.
I'm under no delusions that 2012 is going to be the A3P's year. But possibly we can start making some headway by 2016, by at least working toward getting some much needed publicity.
We're already seeing some great progress in Colorado.
Rather than nationalist attributing various ideas to Ron or Rand Paul that we happen to have in common, I believe that it's time that we made them our own. Let's face it! There's very few ideas that Ron Paul has that hasn't been around for a very long time.
We have an opportunity to take some of theses ideas and leave all the crazy Libertarian baggage behind that has often turned people off from that Party, and has given pause or doubts in the minds of many people, as to just what Rand or Ron Paul really stands for on certain issues important to us, especially immigration, border security, and race and just what they would do, if they were to ever get to the White House.
Given Ron Paul's age, I would also think that he's probably looking toward political retirement whether he wants too or not. And even though Rand Paul is still young and I'm sure has a long political career ahead of him. The longer he stays in there under the present and corrupt political establishment, the more corrupted he'll become, to the point where in a few years, he'll be making deals and compromises just like the rest of those who have sold us out.
