Rand Paul, who's father is the leader of a libertarian movement across this country, took the time to endorse Mitt Romney for President with the objections of many in the liberty movement. To these many he is now a sell out, a traitor, etc. But what if the endorsement was strategic?
The movement that Ron Paul started in 2008 has grown by leaps and bounds. It has taken a lot of man power to convince a lot of people that the ideas of liberty and freedom are what this country needs to return.
With the campaign of Ron Paul dying down, and the nomination of Mitt Romney inevitable, something needs to be done to keep the movement that Paul started alive. It would seem that Rand Paul might be positioning himself with a Romney Administration to keep the train rolling for Liberty.
For some time there was rumors of Ron Paul being a Vice Presidential candidate for Romney. There have also been rumors of a possible Treasury Secretary position. But with time it would seem that Ron Paul might be too old to continue in that type of service. His son however can and will be a leading voice for the movement and by getting in nice with the Romney people he can have some influence over what will happen in a Romney government.
Possible cabinet position for the young Paul??
My point is that people within the Liberty movement need to tone down their rhetoric about Rand's endorsement and look to the brighter side of the endorsement...we will now have an in with the big guns in Washington.
I do agree that Ron Paul needs to stay shy of endorsing Romney and this is a great warning from Chuck Baldwin:
