The Sleeping Giant is Awakening...Submitted by Lao Tzua on Fri, 02/11/2011 - 15:00
A very close family member of an older generation, a life-long democrat, just told me she likes Rand Paul... she has noticed him on the news. She said he is bringing to Washington what he said he would bring.
She was also impressed by reports of RP supporters walking out on Rumsfield at CPAC. (She thought it was Ron Paul himself who walked out on Cheney - I had to straighten that out for her, and also explain that is just not the Pauls' style.)
It might sound small, but it's actually huge... I think it says a lot about 2012... It also says a lot about Rand's appeal - even across the aisle - the great (artificial) divide.
I have also heard stories/rumors over the years about public figures and people from the press who have undergone the relentless pressure from their Ron Paul-supporting college age or young adult kids to WAKE UP. Obviously, you and I can tell when somebody's started reading Ron Paul...
Anybody else have any personal stories like this? Have we begun to awaken the Sleeping Giant?
