Can Ron Paul Truly change Washington if Elected President?Submitted by Liberty8 on Tue, 01/10/2012 - 01:37
Can Ron Paul truly change Washington if Elected? A lot of times when I speak to other people about Ron Paul, I get a feeling that others have simply lost hope for any candidate and the government, which I don't blame them. Some of the frequent responses I get even from people who like Ron Paul the most out of all the candidates, is that they believe that even if Paul was elected, there's no way that he can change Washington and the corruption, they simply won't let him. With frustration, I had thought about that statement and I asked myself, "what could realistically change Washington?". I came up with three answers
1st. HONESTY and STRONG principles that are not easily corruptible. Without this, the following two are not relevant.
2nd. Understanding the core issues. Without understanding the sickness there is no way you can provide a cure or a solution. And the
3rd. is a MOVEMENT of people who are willing to fight for something greater than themselves, not because their support is superficial based on his or hers sweet talk, slick hair or the color of his/her skin, but because they understand what they are truly fighting for, FREEDOM and LIBERTY. I am certain that this combination can go further than just changing Washington, it can Change the World.
Ron Paul is the only one who can provide the Bridge for this MOVEMENT to change Washington. He even stated before in his speech that "Presidents come and go, but a movement can last forever". We have been enjoying the fruits from the movement of our founding Fathers for a long time.
This is what frightens the establishment more than anything, and this is why both Ron Paul and his supporters (us) are painted as dangerous and crazy. (No Doubt we pose great Danger to the Establishment) So the next time someone tells you that Ron Paul can't possibly change Washington, remember " He wont alone, but the movement can, through him".
Imagine what we have accomplished together without much help from the MSM and their Presstitutes. Now imagine what we could accomplish if given a real Chance and Opportunity. I believe we can and should be the example of whats possible, in our Homes, our Communities and most importantly, within ourselves. As Mahatma Gandhi said "Be the change you want to see in the World". So have faith, be strong and Believe in LIBERTY.
