I met 2 Democrats today!!Submitted by takeaction on Wed, 08/17/2011 - 21:02
Well, started the day with the usual list, and on my list before heading to work I had to go to DEQ. In Oregon your car has to pass Department of Environmental Quality before you can renew your tags. Well I pulled in and as the lady asked me to get out of my car so she could plug in her computer, I noticed a sign on the wall that said this "Due to Budget Cuts, DEQ will No Longer Be Open on Friday". I made some comment about my fee $145 to renew my tags and it took less than 30 seconds. This place is one of many scattered around Portland, and the place is usually packed with cars as it was today. $145 every 30 seconds times 5 lanes, multiplied by many statewide locations...and they can't budget their money? This lady was about 60 years old and she agreed with my comment on the incorrect budgeting and I then said...this is part of the Obama disaster...it goes all the way to the top. Then she said she voted for Obama and was very upset with his handling of the country. I then asked if she had heard of Ron Paul. She said "I could never vote for a Republican". I told her real quick that he would end all of the wars, bring our troops home, stop this outlandish spending, and work to bring freedom back to our lives. She stared with the "Deer in the headlights" look for a moment and reverted back to "I could never vote for a republican." And then I said.. "Why?". She paused again...and said...."I just can't". And that was the end of that. She was baffled as was I. I rarely get to meet any Democrats because of the company I keep or they just keep their mouth shut around me.
After DEQ, I went into work and this guy had just brought in a old Porsche 944 that he was restoring, and needed a new stereo and speakers. As my guys were installing his new system, I was up front and he started talking about how prices are going up. We were talking about food prices, and then talking about deflation in homes, and it flipped right back to our government. I told him this...since I could sense his Obama supporting gestures (That are now frustrated). "There is One man that the Media does not want you to know about taht could save us." He asked "Who?". I told him that if I showed him the truth, it would scare him because of "Real Honesty". He was begging me to tell him....I jumped right to the Dailypaul and clicked on the Jon Stewart clip. He was glued to it......After the video, he asked me "Why are they hiding him?". I told him why....and then went right to the debate video on the Daily Paul. He was glued to it. He again was baffled why he had not heard of this wonderful man. After 1/2 hour more of videos...and explanations....his car was done and he sincerely thanked me for showing him Ron Paul. He said he would be on youtube the entire night watching videos about this man...Dr. Paul. I asked him before he left...please if you like what you see.....share it with everyone you know. As he was walking out the door he said...."Like what I see??? How can you not??". Made me feel good. One at a time folks!!
