I want Ron Paul to go home.Submitted by SilverMoney on Fri, 03/23/2012 - 02:37
I want Ron Paul to go home. I want Ron Paul to Retire. I want Ron Paul to spend time with his wife and family and garden. I want Ron Paul to retire, not just from the House of Representatives, but from politics and running for office all together.
I am not saying this as someone who is against Ron Paul. I am not his enemy. In fact, like most of us from the bottom of our heart, Ron Paul is a hero, an unprecedented and irreplaceable hero in our life. Yet, I want Ron Paul to go home.
I’ve often said to myself, that if some great challenge or purpose came to my life, or anyone’s life for that matter, that I would respond to the challenge and sacrifice my well-being and even my life if the cause is worth it. I still believe this to be the case, and I still stand ready to give my life, my hobbies, my money and my pleasure for a worthy cause. I believe that liberty is that cause, and I willing to take it all the way. As the saying goes, “liberty or death”, and I agree with that 100%, because without liberty, what is the point of living.
I am not alone in my thoughts. Seeing how the media works during this 2012 nomination cycle has truly been eye opening, even to those of us who are natural born hard core skeptics. The idea that was being presented was being accepted, was becoming understood, was becoming mainstream but in an instant was swept away never to be heard from again. The threat has been neutralized. This is the sick part of it all; this is the reason why I want Ron Paul to go home.
One man can only change the world so much before he deserves well rest. I want Ron Paul to know that he has inspired a generation, that he has changed the course of history, that his life and his life’s work were worthwhile. Sadly, there is nothing more he can do, but what he has done is and was truly saintly in the purest definition and generations to come will somehow humbly thank him just by being thankful for their blessed lives.
I want to be Ron Paul. I wish I could be as pure and devoted as Ron Paul. To imagine, a politician who means what he says and says what he means is so unique, so infinitely preposterous, that I think all of us want to be Ron Paul.
We are all Ron Paul. We are more than Ron Paul. We are Ron Paul with motivation. We are Ron Paul with friends. We are Ron Paul, not alone, but surrounded by an ever increasingly awoken populous. We are Ron Paul in a world where times are so desperate people are actually willing to listen to what we have to say. We are Ron Paul when the dollar is irrelevant. We are Ron Paul in the age of the internet where ideas are free to spread. We are Ron Paul if we want to be.
Ron Paul never backed down in the face of the real world. A world where politicians lie and cheat. A world where fake is real and real is ostracized as if it were fake. For this reason I think Ron Paul should go home.
Imagine a world with not one Ron Paul but ten Ron Pauls, 100 Ron Pauls, a million Ron Pauls. If we lived in that world, don’t you think it would be ok, even deserving, if just one was able to go home?
