Paul has randomly walked of the edge of the fringe, and is now entering the formalities of platform dysfunction by failure of ethos. What virtue is he exhibiting? Falling on your sword or disruption of process just isn't enough anymore. If this is the GOP flagship candidate for 2016 prepare for another loss. What a waste of time and space for the GOP.

Rand is consistent and is an alternative to the War Party. I can't stand half of his positions but on this one he is correct.
