Randorsement of Romney: Gradualism in Politics

Few events surprise me, but one did yesterday – seeing Rand Paul endorse Mitt Romney on FoxNews. The resultant apoplexy from certain segments of the “Liberty Movement” is not surprising, and regrettable. I did think an endorsement would happen, but not until much later. Paul Jr is seeking to advance his limited government agenda. Given the nature of politics and the innate conservatism of the public (to maintain the status quo) this will occur at a snails pace – rather than by a rapid process. This does not suit plenty of people, but gradualism is usually the most sustainable path forward in politics. So I may disagree with this “Randorsement” at this time, especially when his father Ron Paul is still collecting delegates for the Republican convention, but I commend him for his thinking.
