Yes. But I don't think Ron is running. People keep asking but he has made no indication that he intends to run.
I basically support Rand, but I agree with another answerer: if Sarah Palin or any other establishment shill tried to endorse me, I would publicly renounce them and spit on the ground in disgust. People like her are part of the problem. We don't need their "help."
Another point I disagree with Rand on: he supports the Afghan War. I don't know if he just says that to appeal to a broader "conservative" audience. (By which I mean not really "conservative," but rather, Fox news watching neocon moron, audience).
Either way I can't approve. A man needs to stick to his principles and not compromise them for popularity.
But you know what? It's kind of pointless to focus so much on the presidency. For one thing, it is a lot harder to get someone into the WH who hasn't been compromised. The presidential elections are tightly controlled.
For another thing, Presidents don't really run anything. Constitutionally, the executive is NOT supposed to have much power. Of course, Bush and Obama have seized a lot of new ones, but technically, it's the Congress that is supposed to hold the real power.
We could make a lot more of a difference if we focused on state and local elections.
It's 2010. Let's see what we can do in November before we worry about the next controlled presidential election.
