I met 2 Democrats today!!

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!!

Thanks for sharing your story.

This is the way we WIN, by making the promotion of Ron Paul / Liberty a part of our everyday lives.

...

Thanks for spreading the word

You cannot stop an idea who's times has come, no armies, no governments, no international bankers. It's wonderful to know that it cannot be stopped.

I went to a meetup group

I went to a meetup group tonight, about 12 people showed up, 2 were ex Obama Supporters.

Great!

Little by little spread the Brush Fires!

Wow,

I'm stunned there are two of them left!

Converted Democrat. Once a Naderite, now a Paultard

Honestly, the only reason I watched the debates in 07/08 is because I wanted to see what the next crop of a-hole Republicans were going to look like.

I saw that the mediators and media were treating him unfairly so I investigated why. The guy was telling the truth. So I researched and listed more. He must be a good guy, if the media doesn't want me to listen to him...

Long story short. I switched parties. Now I'm a full-blown Constitutional Consrvative, Libertarian, believer-in-freedom, the whole 9 yards.

I always hated Bush/Cheney but I falsely believed it was because they were capital R's. But it was because they were tyrant totalitarians. Spying. Lying. War-mongering. National ID. Torturing. Indefinite detention. Undeclared wars. IMPEACH!

But I don't feel like Paul changed me because my position stayed the same. It was the Democrats who left me.

If anything Paul reinforced what I really already knew, and expanded upon it. For me, ditching the false left/right paradigm was a spiritual revolution. It took somebody like Paul to break me out of my trance.

You wily salesman you...

You wily salesman you...

That

was very encouraging. I have a story about a dem. at my work. He is going to vote Ron Paul in the N.H. primary. He doesn't think he will in the general but that is o.k. for now. One more for the primary.

Then I was talking to another girl at work today. She is the only other professing Christian where I work and I was complaining on how I wanted to go to the grand opening rather then be a couple of miles away at work while everyone was having fun. She told me her parents are huge Paul fans. That really made my day. Most Christians I know don't like his policies on drugs, war etc.

There are my happy stories for today.

Loved this story. This is how

Loved this story. This is how I like it. It costs nothing. One person tells another, then another..under the radar we build. Then MSM tries their dirty tricks. There is a huge swell of a wave in the sea of Americans..it starts to overshadow them and they run from it..Then it goes down again..building, building, person by person, costing nothing, not needing them, just needing more drops and getting them, growing, growing, under their radar. In quiet certainty, changing the flow of ideas, and plans, forever.

that's a great story.

that's a great story.

I am starting to realize

That Ron Paul is bigger then these elections. Keep spreading the word! The revolution is gaining momentum.

Two thumbs up for a up lifting post

Great story. You're right - one person at a time.

I've often wondered if we should have signs with something like "They don't want you to know...." somewhere on them. Like the man you met today, it might intrigue people. I'm trying to think of a better way to make that point....

Thanks!

Great story!

That´s why they wanna keep him out of the media

Thanks for sharing.

Glorybumps :)

Thanks for sharing. I get so down sometimes here in SC. It helps to be lifted in spirit by those who move mountains (I mean Democrats lol)..
