Rand Paul is not an important person (no disrespect intended) and his father's importance will NOT be measured by his political acumen. In fact, over
time, people shall remember Ron Paul for his economic writings not for his failed political campaigns.
It doesn't really matter what either Paul does politically. Perhaps that's not clear now, though it will be.
Right now, admittedly, it is giving freedom's enemies a good deal to celebrate. Even the alternative media "monopoly-paper money crowd" is engaged
in celebration. As more and more of various pre-war national socialist platforms are apparently adopted by elements of the alternative media, Rand is
being positioned as a whipping boy for a populist vision.
I don't endorse Rand Paul's endorsement of Mitt Romney. And if Ron Paul gave it his blessing, I don't bless that either. But here is the thing: Ron
Paul has proven an effective and valuable educator for free market thinking. No doubt he will continue to do that and go down in history for the
monetary education he has provided at a critical time.
That is his legacy. That was why he got in the race. He said as much long ago.
He struggled as a non-entity for decades. He was derided as a kook and a bumbling extremist. His colleagues such as Murray Rothbard and Lew Rockwell
were equally derided, when they were mentioned at all. They had no power and no publicity.
