Ron and Rand are NOT The Same Man
To those of you who are fuming over Rand Paul’s endorsement of Mitt Romney.
Ron Paul and Rand Paul are not the same man. Rand Paul’s endorsement of Mitt Romney was not a betrayal, nor was it unexpected as he has stated numerous times that he would support the Republican nominee whoever it may be and at this time, he believes that Romney will win the nomination. Do I agree with it? No, but I refuse to condemn Ron Paul for the actions of his son and I do not expect an explanation for an act he, himself did not commit.
Rand has never been a libertarian and has said many times that he and his father disagree on some things and do not always see eye to eye. The fact that he endorsed Romney might be a shock to many but it should be no reflection on his father who’s voting record is still as impeccable today as it was a week and a half ago before Rand made his statement.
For those of you Paul supporters who have jumped ship and abandoned the campaign and the liberty movement, I have just one question; Did you think it was going to be easy? If so, then you were sadly mistaken. In a paradigm so completely entrenched in our society, you should have expected some push-back. If you thought that supporting Ron Paul was somehow going to fix everything, again, I say you were mistaken.
Sure, it would have been nice to take the softer, easier way and gotten our guy elected, but do you honestly believe the establishment was going to let that happen? If so, then I hope you have learned a valuable lesson and will get off your ass now and do something rather than waiting for someone to come and save you. I’ve been saying for a long time now that if we want real change, then we alone are responsible for making it happen. Now is that time.
We must take our country back. One way to do that is to take it over from the bottom up. Get involved in your local, state and congressional elections. Keep tabs on your representatives. Hold them accountable. Run for office yourself or support other Liberty minded individuals who are running for office. Get involved in your community and talk to people. Make your voices heard!
The liberty movement did not originate with either Ron Paul or Rand Paul. Liberty does not need a leader because it is in the nature of man to be free and independent. The cause is not about a man and if you are going to stop fighting for this cause because of the actions of one man, then you were never about the cause to begin with. So rather than sitting there having your feelings hurt, get up, dust yourself off and get organized. We may not win the Presidency, but there is more than one way to get where we want to be.
