I am SO PROUD of you!Submitted by 2cb on Thu, 01/12/2012 - 19:41
I am almost 50, and loved Ron Paul since 1980 or so, after seeing him interviewed on some news show, maybe it was William F. Buckley. I remember wondering "huh? This is the first time I ever heard any politician talk sense or say anything meaningful!" Ron Paul was the first and last time I ever heard a sensible politician. I don't even care for politics unless I hear the name Ron Paul. I remember asking my parents about him, or trying to share my feeling about him, and they pretty much just blew him off, as if it was just nonsense. I was about 17 or so.
I follow Ron Paul every day, reloading all the Google news stories for Ron Paul a few times per hour, whenever I get a chance, emailing the best ones to everyone I know. Usually, I am fairly vocal, but it seems Ron Paul supporters say it all in the comment sections, and I am left with nothing to add. I admire them so much. After so many years, I have too much anger to comment as intelligently as the Ron Paul supporters do. But wherever I go in public, I never hesitate to start up a chat with someone, and make a plea to please do some research on Ron Paul - he is the only sane candidate, the only uncorrupted candidate, the only candidate grounded with both feet in reality, in America.
Sometimes, I get choked up in my throat (like the beginning of crying, but not crying) when I see the Ron Paul supporters fighting back against the evil & corrupt media, and when I see them giving all their energy at Ron Paul rallies.
When I see how intelligent and knowledgeable all the Ron Paul supporters are, it's like seeing the best-of-the-best about America, something that is only a once-in-a-lifetime chance, something that emits a radiant glow of an America to be proud of, an appreciation of the younger generation, and a hope for a positive, real, and meaningful future ... something I never felt before in my adult years (only exception being the Internet).
It's not fun to be awake and live your whole life amidst the tyranny of all-encompassing frauds. It kills the will and aspiration to be part of bettering life, bettering the future. Take a clue from the number of alcoholics in the old Soviet Union.
I wish I was 20 again, so I could play a bigger part in it all. This is a great time to be alive, especially if you are in your 20s/30s. You are within reach of changing this world for the better in almost uncountable ways. It may be one of the most historical periods of time since the Revolution in 1776.
I think of Ron Paul, and how great a challenge it must be for him - he is really giving it his all, I don't think most 50-year-olds could keep up with him - it gives me the same feeling as seeing an Olympian idol win the gold. I have felt disillusioned for the last 30 years of my adult life, and Ron Paul's supporters are giving me some great new illusions; they make me smile in my quiet and reflective moments, they give me a glimse of the good in humanity, of the original promise of America.
I love them all.
Please win, please succeed! :)
You got the energy! Keep it up!
