The passion of a young Ron Paul supporterSubmitted by principle_first on Wed, 03/21/2012 - 22:51
My name is Joe and I'm 23 years old. I've been a DP visitor for over a year now and just a few months ago I created an account on here so that I could contribute to the Liberty message. I live in SW Pennsylvania and I just wanted to let everyone know what I have been doing.
You see, I'm part of Ron Paul's passionate young support who the media proclaims never shows up to the voting booths to put theirs words into action. So let me say this. I have gotten my sister (age 22), my mother (43), and my grandmother (67) to all register republican and are all voting for Ron Paul. My mother and grandmother have never been republicans and have never voted for one in their lifetime. There's 4 votes considering I'm voting too. I have also gotten my two roommates who are ages 22 and 24 to register and vote. This will be their first time ever voting. Liberty is contagious and when you interrupt your roommates' favorite TV show to turn on a republican presidential debate and they seen how hyped I was, they became intrigued. They wanted to know why I cared so much about a 'stupid' debate. The opportunity presented itself and I was able to start a conversation about important issues that really mattered before they could go off to their rooms to turn 'How I met your mother' back on.
I will not allow the media to label me. They want to say the youth is voiceful but lack the commitment to follow through. I am only one but I am bringing five others with me. My friends....the message of liberty is spreading. I believe it with all my heart. I will not give up. Let's get our government back! I'm soooo pumped right now. LOL. Ok, I'm done.
