I almost gave up after the 2008 Campaign, but this time its different!Submitted by knightsofnee on Sat, 10/15/2011 - 11:47
Here is a post I made back in 2008. For those recently awakened from the "deep sleep." I discovered Ron Paul during the first CNN debate in 2007 when "boom" the light went on. II was astounded at what I heard from Ron Paul. Then after the debate when they showed "who won" the little graph didn't even have Paul's name on it. I said to myself "WTF?"
I almost gave up last time.
Why does Ron Paul keep going?

Because he is doing the job if Isaiah. Preaching to the Remnant. He refers to the Remnant in his recent video at 12:07. He sees the crash coming and wants to keep the Remnant engaged so they can rebuild a free and just society. It is hard work. But very important. Ron Paul sees a much bigger picture here than just trying to win an election. He is gathering as many of the Remnant that he can as soon as possible. Trying to organize the Remnant before the collapse.
"In the year of Uzziah's death, the Lord commissioned the prophet to go out and warn the people of the wrath to come. "Tell them what a worthless lot they are." He said, "Tell them what is wrong, and why and what is going to happen unless they have a change of heart and straighten up. Don't mince matters. Make it clear that they are positively down to their last chance. Give it to them good and strong and keep on giving it to them. I suppose perhaps I ought to tell you," He added, "that it won't do any good. The official class and their intelligentsia will turn up their noses at you and the masses will not even listen. They will all keep on in their own ways until they carry everything down to destruction, and you will probably be lucky if you get out with your life." Albert J Nock, from his essay Isaiah's Job

This is what animates Ron Paul and what his video message really means. This Revolution has to continue beyond this election. His campaign has uncovered more of the Remnant than he could ever have imagined.
Albert Nock was right, after all. "The other certainty which the prophet of the Remnant may always have is that the Remnant will find him. He may rely on that with absolute assurance. They will find him without his doing anything about it; in fact, if he tries to do anything about it, he is pretty sure to put them off. He does not need to advertise for them nor resort to any schemes of publicity to get their attention."
This is why Ron Paul keeps going on.
