There simply is no major difference between Lee's limited government vision, and the one espoused by most libertarians, including Rand Paul. Lee's vision, however, is antithetical to how K Street Establishment Republicans have governed Washington in the very recent past.

But by getting establishment Republicans like Gerson to move in his direction, Lee is slowly changing the soul of the party.

This is how it goes with all political movements. First a trickle then a flood and then, when the tipping point is reached, BOOM! It happens overnight!
