Explaining Sen. Paul’s endorsement of Mitt Romney to Ron Paul supporters is sort of like trying to explain “blowback” to regular Republicans: Both take time to explain, and yet those who aren’t willing to take the time to listen will never understand. Regular Republicans automatically think those who try to explain blowback are somehow rationalizing terrorism. Paul supporters automatically think those who try to explain Rand’s endorsement are somehow trying to rationalize “selling out.” Nothing could be further from the truth.
Sen. Paul has said for months he would endorse the Republican presidential nominee. I completely agree with this decision. In fact, I didn’t even consider it an option to do otherwise–not for me, not for Sen. Paul, certainly not for Romney, but for the good of our movement.
Confused? You’re not alone. Please give me a moment of your time to explain:
