Does anyone else feel kind of deflated right now?
There are still quite a few people pissed off at Ron for throwing in the towel at the height of his public support. Twice.
Similar or worse feelings toward Rand. Actually, there's a whole section on that here.
This is no longer about a “leader” that says all the right things only to throw everybody under the bus.
This is about we the people. And the liberty movement is alive and well in the hearts of the population as evidenced by the recent US election and the Brexit vote.
It's now on us to remain vigilant and to oversee our own government continually. The old vote and get screwed paradigm is over. We can no longer “trust” anyone to respect the constitution and protect the interests of US citizens for 4 years.
Trump voters have already made the statement, “Break your campaign promises at your peril”.
Of/by/for the people means that the people
are the ultimate authority with the responsibility of oversight.
