Wow Ron Paul is REALLY winning.Submitted by Treg on Tue, 09/13/2011 - 00:17
What a turn around from 2007-8. Wow.
Everyone and I mean every candidate now in the debates agrees with Ron Paul on so many issues.
Huntsman we should get out of Afghanistan, Perry its time to go but leave some force there, and on it goes and stops at Santorum who is still reading from the same NeoCon playbook as Newt.
No, they all don't have the issues down precisely, but with time....
The ideas that Ron speaks up for are the ideas where they continue to go astray. He is like a good Shepard, and they are listening. They still don't like the ideas on foreign policy, but they know he's right about DEFENSE spending vs Military spending. He got them there and they all had nothing to say (except Santorum and maybe Newt, still a NeoCon).
Here is why they are listening. YOU and I.
I mean it. Its YOU and I. We are fiercely loyal. Ron Paul is polling at around 10% or so. That is a lot of GOP votes, and they NEED them if they are going to "win" as they define 'winning'. For us, its all about the right policies.
So, if YOU and I decide to go down with the Ron Paul ship like we did in 2008, hold our own Convention (Yea baby!) then THEY ALL KNOW that THEY cannot win and beat Barack Obama.
Its now really a game of chicken, whose going to blink?
We will hear, "You mean you would rather let Obama get another 4 years than vote for ________????"
That is why Newt is on the "We are all in this together to beat Obama" mantra.
This is why Rick Perry is doing his best to "be" a better Ron Paul (cough, cough).
SO, if YOU and I don't blink, stay loyal to the End, We will make the front runners twist in the wind to get our votes. They will try hard to find our ideas appealing, rephrased and repackaged to taste more digestible.
But who amoung them will say:
Abolish the Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, Gitmo, and Bring all the Troops home?
Who? Who wants it? Who?
Come 2016, I can see all of them saying it... from Jeb Bush to Paul Ryan to Chris Christee and of course to Rand Paul.
What I would really like to see is some Presidential candidates in the Democratic party saying it in 2016. What our R3VOLution now needs is for a 'RonPaul-RedDemocrat' to come forth and start championing all of Ron's policy positions.
Yes, that will be the day, a great day for America...
In the meantime, I love all you Ron Paul Faithful, you really don't know how much I love you all. I can't wait until we have our own Convention again, either Inside the GOP (I doubt it) or outside. WE ARE MORE POWERFUL than the FAUX-Tea Party crowds, even though there are more of them.
WE ARE MORE POWERFUL. Our loyalty, our passion and our devotion to the Policies and Principles that Ron espouses for us make us one hard UNITED FIST in American Politics. We are a strong tight FIST rising up, a R3VOLutionary FIST that screams "FREEDOM" in every breath. They listen to us as we prepare to go to battle against Obama and the Democrats. They are scared, but they love our fire and they know they NEED us...
When the GOP rank n file come, and they will come and they will says, "We all need to stick together! We MUST defeat Barack Obama" our answer to that MUST BE THIS....
"I FIGHT FOR FREEDOM, YOU FIGHT FOR SLAVERY. I FIGHT FOR FREEDOM, YOU FIGHT FOR ONE CHAIN ON YOUR ANKLE. I FIGHT FOR FREEDOM, FOR MY WIFE, FOR MY CHILDREN, FOR MY COUNTRY. I FIGHT FOR FREEDOM, I FIGHT FOR RON PAUL."
We must say to the Rick Santorums and the Newts and the Posers and the naive inside the GOP the following.
"I FIGHT FOR FREEDOM. ALL OF IT. I FIGHT FOR YOUR FREEDOM. ALL OF IT. I FIGHT FOR FREEDOM BECAUSE I KNOW NOTHING MORE PRECIOUS TO ME THAN THAT, NOT FOOD, NOT WATER, NOT EVEN A SILLY "WIN" OVER YET ANOTHER PRESIDENT WHO DOES STUPID THINGS. I FIGHT IN THIS R3VOLution BECAUSE OF LOVE, MY LOVE FOR FREEDOM. MY ANCESTORS BLEED FOR IT, MY FATHER DIED FOR IT IN HER WARS, MY LIFE MEANS NOTHING! NOTHING WITHOUT FREEDOM..........
So you will have me Vote, Support, bend down and accept my CHAINS to PERRY because he wants a "Fair Tax", well I want NO TAX, I WANT FREEDOM FROM TAXES. I WANT IT FOR ME, I WANT IT FOR YOU, I WANT IT FOR THE COUNTRY THAT I LOVE MORE THAN I KNOW.
So you say you want me to vote, Support, bend down and compromise myself and accept the CHAINS for ROMNEY because he will "Fix the Economy". WELL I DON'T WANT A PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA TO 'FIX' THE ECONOMY, I WANT HIM AND ALL OF CONGRESS TO GET OUT OF THE ECONOMY. I WANT FREEDOM FROM HIM AND ALL THAT HE WILL DO.
YOU say that I should Support, bend down and compromise myself and accept the CHAINS for BACHMAN because she will get rid of ONE BAD THING, OBAMACARE? I WANT FREEDOM FROM ALL OF GOVERNMENT CARE! I WANT FREEDOM.
MOST OF ALL, I WANT A SOCIETY THAT LOVES ITS NEIGHBORS THROUGH CHARITY, BEAUTIFUL SWEET THOUGHTFUL KINDNESS,a TENDERNESS that is ONLY FOUND in CHARITY. THAT IS THE KIND OF FREE COUNTRY THAT I WANT. FREE and CHARITABLE.
And if you say to me my republican friend, THAT the neighbors that YOU KNOW are not that charitable, WELL I SAY ITS BECAUSE GOVERNMENT HAS BEEN FORCING THEM DOWN IN WELFARE AND WARFARE AND MOST OF ALL, DEBT AND DEPENDENCE. SET YOUR NEIGHBORS GOODNESS FREE!
I WANT FREEDOM, I WANT FREEDOM NOW, NOT LATER. I DON'T WANT IT IN SLICES OR TRADE OFFS OR IN STEPS. LISTEN TO ME CLEARLY, I WANT OUR BOYS HOME, PROTECTING THIS COUNTRY NOW! I WANT ALL MY FREEDOMS RESTORED. I WANT THE PATRIOT ACT GONE. I WANT THE MILITARY COMMISSIONS ACT GONE. I WANT THE SPENDING TO STOP AND I WANT MY MONEY TO BE FREE WHICH MEANS I WANT THE BANKING CARTEL CALLED THE FED TO END. I WANT FREE MARKET MONEY, WHICH MEANS GOLD AND SILVER. I WANT FREEDOM to just live, without force, without your precious government telling me, forcing me, requiring me, numbering me, and doing for me... I W A N T FREEDOM!!!
In peace and liberty,
* Of course the economy could hit the wall and collapse and then ... who knows, Ron may be very reluctantly putting his hand on the Bible and saying, "I swear to uphold and protect the Constitution"
