Constitution-Connected Youth Choose Ron PaulSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Tue, 02/22/2011 - 15:36
Okay, you don’t have to believe me. Just listen for a moment. Decades ago when I had small children, I said—no matter-what—sugar makes children crazy with energy; sodas mixed with television were not doing our future generation any good. Second, I said fibromyalgia was a muscle malfunction from a life of inactivity and sufferers would feel better if they just exercised. Two years ago, I said there was hope for America through youth and technology.
Did I see the studies on this? Did I scour the journals of New England Medicine and live on a diet of Time Magazine? No. I just lived in the real world and, with a brain, figured it out.
Over the years, science caught up. I’m not bragging. I’m just shocked that we have to sink millions of dollars into research before we open our eyes and see logic and common sense. For example, they haven’t told us that those new, super-caffeine driven soft drinks will kill you but in the newspapers the other day, a young student died after drinking five of them and the autopsy showed it was because of the sodas.
When those first came out several months ago, my son wouldn’t drink one because of what he had heard about them from other students, not to mention his nutrition teacher at Dixon High. I know what a Starbucks does for me at 3 p.m. when I’ve been up since 5 a.m. and I’m feeling half dead. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure things out.
Then when my mother was getting addicted to 20 different drugs for all her “fibro” complaints, I could never get her to walk to the mailbox, come to a grandchild’s birthday party, or--God forbid--exercise. This past week, there is an article in the paper that studies prove fibromyalgia symptoms go away when sufferers exercise. It’s only common sense. Even a brand spanking new baby can crawl to its mother’s breast at birth. We were meant to move.
Now, the double-truck spread of a story in Time Magazine says why the revolutions across the world are different this time: “The combination of youth and technology is driving a wave of change.” The story is about the Middle East revolution due to young, determined, democracy seekers who changed their world through Internet communications.
I’m filled with hope after seeing Ron Paul emerge as a Presidential candidate a couple years ago backed by youth. The hard-working Obstetrician and elected Texas Congressman—and the constitution movement--had been virtually ignored and shunned by the media. I didn’t even know who he was and had never heard of him until I kept seeing signs and stickers that just said his name. So, at my son’s request, I went on U-Tube to see him. You need to also.
