Saw a news report last week that Rand has already said the GOP needs to adopt some libertarian ideas to survive. And he's not a libertarian either. In his own words.
I think there would be less contention on social issues if we followed the Constitution and had candidates say they are state issues--not federal. These things just get magnified at a national level because different regions, and areas have different values. It doesn't work. I wish a presidential candidate would say it has little to do with the powers of the presidency.
