True, that we know off, but Rand was not ridiculed, smeared, and called a quack a fraction of what Ron has been. I remember a yt video if him being on Geraldo in the 80-90s, he was young, and just getting booed and ridiculed for saying common sense stuff and criticizing the federal reserve. There is no doubt this was a set-up by Geraldo and his producers.. Surprised they didn't arm the audience with rotten tomatoes, there was nothing organic about the audience reaction. It was bizarre. He was a huge threat, but I do think Rand's cajones have grown in the last years.

That is granted. But as the old saying goes, first they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they attack you...then you win, then they build monuments to you. I agree entirely on the Festivus Report, but I would include Planned (un)Parenthood 'grants', White Coat Waste project's reporting of animal abuse, and aid to dependent dictators. The whole 2008 election with the Romney/ Ryan 'win' of the nomination stank to high heaven, IMHO.

I agree. What scared them about Ron Paul so much was his dedication to disseminating factual information to the public, decades and decades of newsletters on a wide variety of topics. I'm sure Ron Paul didn't go into politics be a politician (to suck as much money from the public teat as possible), and I don't believe Rand did either, but he got stuck somewhere, not in the swamp, I believe he lives an honest and modest life, but just being complacent. I know being as productive as Ron Paul has been over the decades would be pretty tough to compete with, so my initial comment was unfair. but some of that would be great. This is an information war and without the information, the citizens will always be the POWs.
