Hi, here's a link to the image in the AP database:

http://www.apimages.com/OneUp.aspx?rids=9aec6abdf767463a9e15...

In this Jan. 11, 2012 file photo, Ivy Littlejohn, 13, of Pacolet, S.C. watches as Republican presidential candidate, Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas speak in West Columbia, S.C. A 76-year-old great-grandfather who gives eye-glazing speeches on monetary policy, displays a crotchety streak and disappears from the Republican campaign trail for days at a time to rest up is captivating young voters. Texas Rep. Ron Paul's libertarian message clicks with young people, who are supplying zest to his stronger-than-expected presidential campaign. Why would young people gravitate to the oldest guy in the field? “Freedom is a young idea,” says one youthful voter. (AP Photo/David Goldman, File)

Here's a high-resolution un-watermarked version of the photograph.

This photo is everywhere

Just saw it on another news site, this time out of Amarillo, TX
http://www.newschannel10.com/story/16508016/young-voters-pro...

Looks like the picture got picked up by the Associated Press (AP), and has gone viral

Maybe I should have also added

that this is not her first rodeo :)

Awe..

Amazing how they grow up so fast!! Beautiful :))

Mathew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Here She is Again!

Yes but I didn't much care for this part of the caption:

"A 76-year-old great-grandfather who gives eye-glazing speeches on monetary policy, displays a crotchety streak and disappears from the Republican campaign trail for days at a time to rest up is captivating young voters."

The captioner shows clear bias, assuming that because Paul is 76 he wears out easily. If they only knew the truth of it...

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

Beautiful!

So inspiring...The fresh, vibrant face of youth for the cause of liberty really stirs the heart. Love it!

Love won! Deliverance from Tyranny is on the way! Col. 2:13-15

that is very cool

You forgot to tell everyone that she wears it every day to school and Ron Paul shirts too!

Turn Copper into gold http://UgetGold.com and see what it is all about!
YOU EARN COPPER, SILVER AND/OR GOLD!!!
You will need it if we dont get a President!

Littlejohn

Littlejohn's are kind of a big deal in South Carolina. I am an Oklahoma Littlejohn and that's where our family name comes from...this is the kind of thing that will turn my 76 year old father into a Ron Paul Supporter. Can't wait to send the link....

Well go ahead and tell him

that she is also the great-niece of C. Bruce Littlejohn SC Supreme Court Chief Justice, Speaker of the SC House of Representatives. That may help too! :)

BTW

Have been on daily Paul twice a day since the last election and the first time I ever Posted....already know you guys....just a bit of a wallflower I guess.

Welcome RLJ!

Wallflowers are my kind of people :)

There I go.....

almost crying again. =D

Here's the direct link.

Wow - so beautiful butterfly.

Ron Paul is My President

She's beautiful, SC Butterfly

I love how it looks sort of like she's praying. And we need a prayer here in the USA. That photo will remain throughout history, I believe. It's what they call, iconic. :)

Best part about this

Is that the future is ours. SC Butterfly has done her part. Time to turn on all the kids to Ron Paul. Next go around we will be exponentially stronger thanks to people like SC Butterfly and her great parenting.

Note to SC Butterfly, the apple does not fall far from the liberty tree :D

May the LORD bless you and keep you
May the LORD make His face shed light upon you and be gracious unto you
May the LORD lift up His face unto you and give you peace

Thrilled for both of you!

This is absolutely wonderful!

My 7 year-old son LOVES Ron Paul. He's been hounding me to buy him a Ron Paul t-shirt for a while and anywhere we go if someone brings up politics he proudly proclaims "If I was 18 I would vote for Ron Paul!"

Just this morning I was listening to a clip of Rush Limbaugh arguing with a caller about Ron's foreign policy and my son just shook his head and said, "Mom, that man doesn't know what he's talking about."

"No he doesn't, baby. No he doesn't"

So proud of all the kiddos for Paul :)

I'm reaching up and reaching out.
I'm reaching for the random or what ever will bewilder me.
And following our will and wind we may just go where no one's been.
We'll ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one's been.
Spiral out.

Reason to fight

I don't have kid and they are the reason I fight for the cause. People like your boy and the little girl that I saw the other day at the NH polls carrying a RP sign and saying the she likes Ron Paul because he is "un-corruptable". I don't understand how anyone with children could consider anyone else but Ron Paul for their kids future.

It is better to look dumb and not be, than to look smart and not be.

Awesome pic!

I have a republican meeting today and I am thinking I will have my oldest wear a Ron Paul shirt. I will post a pic later.

Great picture butterfly.

Reminds me of my 14 year old daughter in 2008
