I Met Ron Paul!

So I just got back from the Constitution Day Celebration in Freeport Texas where....I met...Ron Paul!!!!!!!! Oh my god I'm still pinching myself! I have probably listened to every one of his speeches but something about him standing twenty feet away from me just left me completely enamored all over again. I was totally star struck! I'm officially resisting the urge to cover my car in Ron Paul bumper stickers and run out and get a RonPaul2012 tramp stamp. Just kidding... But seriously, this guy is the real deal. I cannot urge people enough to look into him, or look into whoever you're interested in period. The best thing about listening to RP is that he literally speaks from his heart. He doesn't read anything off of a paper. He doesn't badmouth the other candidates. He just starts talking about these problems and how we need to fix them.

Unfortunately I was really busy this week and didn't have much time to blog about the Tea Party debate on Monday, but don't think I forgot. It's so important for us to be watching these debates, but even more than that, doing our own research. Debra Medina was speaking tonight as well, and she was talking about how if we aren't happy with someone that is in office, it's not their fault, it's ours. She is absolutely right. At some point we need to start acting like grown-ups. We need to start being responsible for ourselves. We need to hold ourselves accountable for our actions. If you want to complain every day about what a crappy job Obama is doing as President, then that is up to you to change that. If we are electing people without knowing their voting record, or how they react to certain issues, how can we expect to be happy with their actions? How can we expect them to serve our best interest?

On Monday night Rick Perry said that he thinks it's very important for us to bring our troops home quickly and safely, and immediately after he said that he said it is still important for us to keep a presence in the Middle East. Um, what?? That right there should tell people that this guy is NOT someone we can seriously consider as a presidential candidate. He had a tough time on Monday night, though. He took quite a beating from all sides. Unfortunately for Rick, it doesn't look like people are just going to forget about his little HPV mandate for twelve year old girls. That one just doesn't look too good on paper. At the last debate, his response to the HPV issue was "I hate cancer." Does Rick Perry really hate cancer? Or does he just really like his friends in the pharmaceutical companies slipping cash in his back pockets? In this debate he said "At the end of the day I'm always going to err on the side of life." What about all those executions, Rick? I can really see how you err on the side of life, just like I can see how you'll bring our troops home and rebuild our economy. He wants to tell you how he knows more about border control and immigration than anyone else, but he fails to mention his Texas Dream Act, where he lets illegal immigrants pay instate tuition. This guy is really a mess.

I really didn't think that Rick Santorum could make himself look any stupider. But I was wrong. He tried to attack Ron Paul by saying that he had something on his website that blamed the United States for 9/11. This idea has got to end. Literally, Rick Santorum thinks that Iraqis just flew over here and crashed into our buildings on 9/11 because they are so jealous of how free and rich we are. The scary thing is that there are still a lot of people who think this way. Literally the exact same situation played out in 2008 when Rudy Giuliani tried to do the same thing. It didn't work out too well for Giuliani.

I know it's a hard pill to swallow, but it's time to open our eyes. We were dropping bombs on Iraq for something like ten years before 9/11. What do we expect? For years these people saw us killing their women and children, bombing their homes and businesses, and one day they had enough. We have been in Iraq after 9/11 for ten years now. There were no weapons of mass destruction, so why didn't we come home? Now we are there to spread democracy? I mean do people really still believe this? If you ask five people to tell you why they think we are in Iraq, I bet you will get five different answers. What does that tell you? Not only are we in Iraq but we are at war with Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, and Libya. That's five wars that we are involved in right now! I don't understand why people aren't flipping out over this. Not to mention that we have no money. Our economy is flat broke, yet we are spending billions on these wars. For Rick Santorum to stand behind his podium and tell me that he doesn't believe that 9/11 was blowback from our own actions, he might as well tell me that he believes in the tooth fairy.

On another note, I have finally uncovered Rick Santorum's true identity.

You'll have to read my blog to see his true identity :) http://ronpaulgirl.wordpress.com/

Crashing The Party by Ralph Nader

When Ross Perot bought himself a soapbox in the '92 presidential race, a few eyebrows lifted, and then, like a black cloak and dagger act, Perot was gone.

I was a precinct inspector for the County of Los Angles in 1992 with what represented 10K LOCKED ballots, and with dozens of cars behind me, representing tens of thousands of cars like mine, waiting to drop off the LOCKED boxes, I heard Tom Brokaw announce Clinton as president.

How could that happen?

Thousands of us DEMANDED AN ANSWER, and the response was CENSORSHIP; So, many of us appealed to Ralph Nader. Ralph Nader's presidential campaigns are by, of, and for, we the people who have worked elections from top to bottom and have been fighting the corruption all the way. I have voted for Nader FOUR times, not because I agreed with his platform, but as a volunteer, petitioner, always from the outside to force fair elections and open debates. Last election we earned 22 law suits in 17 states. It's why I DOUBT Ron Paul will go Indy. Ron Paul has been our break to go inside a major party, and the GOP is no fool. They know this and why Ron Paul hs such a huge GOP following that is not youthful, and why he is marginalized, as we have always been.

The elections are rigged, just like Ron Paul censorship... WELCOME TO THE CLUB! Don't let anyone tell you that this is OUR fault. This is the fault of neo liberals and neo conservatives who lie, cheat and steal for their elite masters, which we are slaves.

Ross Perot represented the good master, compared to government the bad master. Ralph Nader represents we the people who are not sitting down. I think Ron Paul runs to split Nader's votes actually. 500K of us standing fast for Freedom with or without Ron Paul.

I hope Ron Paul makes the nomination. If not, I'm back to supporting Nader, knowing, I'm working to bring open debates and fair elections to we the people, if nothing more.

PS, Al Gore upsets me because he blames we the people for climate change. In Inconveinent Truth, Gore is filmed jet setting and riding around in a SUV, later reports are that one home he owns runs a $30K mo, utility bill. Yet, it's we the people he blames? He never mentions what government uses, or corporations... he blames us. I have a problem with people who blame other people for political issues. They are lying.

"...he literally speaks from his heart..."

Isn't that rare and wonderful!

As far as Iraqi flying over here and blah, blah, blah - perhaps Santorum should do a little research and stop repeating inane, empty soundbytes. It is amazing the information that is out there if people will just research and think for themselves (like Ron Paul does):

How about: Disarming Iraq by Hans Blix (Remember him, the chief Iraq WMD inspector?)

Blix stresses that he never trusted Hussein and that inspectors were often misled and stonewalled, but he also points out that they never found any evidence of weapons of mass destruction either.

Not to mention the fact that Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11.

And this little jewel:

"The FBI has no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden with the 9/11 attacks on america" - FBI spokesman Rex Tomb

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.

I met Dr. Paul before I was a hardcore supporter

went with a buddy down to new orleans for the RLAC straw poll and got to hear dr. paul and meet him at the Gordon Biersch brewery.

He was standing outside in the new orleans heat for 3 hours shaking hands and signing books (and basically being mugged like a rock star).

i feel like such a dork for saying to him "Dr. Paul you're probably due for a pretty good rest right about now". and he said "Yeah I'm about to go get one here pretty soon". keep in mind he had given a 45 minute speech and then hung with all the fans at the brewery for 3 or 4 hours on his feet meeting everyone. Then I told him I liked his joke about legalizng raw milk (in his speech)! it was the way he said it, like it was some major campaign slogan, even though it is absolutely part of his beliefs, and he said it in a half joking half serious way. "Well I'm for legalizing RAW MILK!!!"

he just smiled and we took a picture. the RLC and the meet and greet ar the brewery afterwards was some of the most fun I've had in a long time.

I met Ron...

briefly at CPAC this year, and felt the same way.

I am just as flabbergasted as you- how can anyone take Rick Perry seriously? Just look at him- he's an actor, a puppet. And God knows, we can't let those neocon psychos anywhere near the White House again. They're already lining up for spots within the Perry admin..

Keep up the good fight!

This was hilarious!

This was hilarious!

I am jealous

seriously, I am jealous because I have not met him yet 4 years in, and I agree with you, we have to change the system,it is up to us, but we have to change the media because people don't fathom that the media is bought and paid for, so their ignorance is kind of not their fault, I got lucky finding Ron Paul from a friend, if I saw him on the tv, I would probably be riding the tide of the mainstream sheeple. We have more to change than elections, we have to educate. Keep up the great work!!!
