The liberty movement isn’t so fragile that its vitality depended on the poll numbers of Rand Paul. And it won’t die because he dropped out. In fact, I doubt much of the liberty movement that grew out of his father’s campaigns paid much attention to Rand. They’ve been too busy advancing liberty in their own respective states. Several writers over at Reason appear to have put a bit too much faith and hope into the political chances of Rand Paul. How else could anyone proclaim that the Libertarian Moment either lived or died based on how popular Rand was?
