the Joker in the deck

“...Paul is the fickle finger of fate, the Joker in the deck. His presence upends their game. It isn't even HIM, Ron Paul. It is his direct confrontational honesty and logical consistency. He is the guy who had the credentials to stand up and call out the truth. And he did. So everyone who is seeking truth and integrity is now coalescing around his honesty. It is very simple. There is no other choice. He is the center of reason and peace in a vast hurricane storm. Don't doubt the Spiritual Forces are now moving parallel with this man to amplify the field of personal and social transmutation.” MW Mandeville

People are waking up!

I found this on the Doug Wead blog. Off topic a bit, but so inspirational.
After reading your article Mr. Wead, my heart is swelled with hope and my eyes are filled with tears... I am an old fat white woman who has been razzle-dazzled with the shenanigans of bait and switch, confused with cleverly disguised distractions and deceived by bald-faced lies by her duly elected officials and her government. From my earliest remembrances I was taught to, "put my hand over my heart, and obey", "the policeman is my friend", and "my government will never hurt me"....and until a year ago...I believed it... My son, Sgt. Treat, who is stationed at Ft. Gordon of Augusta, GA, introduced me to Dr. Paul. My son kept talking about this guy named Ron Paul whom he was all excited about. I would read what my son had written on FB or I would hear with one ear what he was saying about Ron Paul while I fixed supper. I would insert all the right, "uh-huhs" in all of the right places...but I was not listening, I was just nodding and being polite. One day I got down right pissed off with that boy of mine because my FB wall was always filled with all of this B.S. about some old man who was running for President, "A YEAR AND A-HALF FROM NOW"! I got so tired of seeing all of that Ron Paul garbage all over my wall...I just ALMOST hid my son’s posts. Now, I know that sounds awful, but it is the truth, my boy and I had come to such an impasse over this issue, I was considering shutting him out of my life. However, because I love him, I didn’t. When my son told me he was going to Iowa to work the straw poll for Dr. Paul, that kind of turned my head, I thought, "What is so special about this old man, in the ill fitting suits, and the goofy looking shoes, that my son would, SPEND MONEY, to fly half way across the country to WORK FOR FREE?" When the straw poll was over, Ryan sent me a link for Dr. Paul's after-speech; and because my curiosity was up, I watched it. End of Story... Following the first 10 minutes ...I was crying....weeping, the heart of a cynic, calloused by many years of empty guarantees and broken promises, had been buffed smooth and supple by this funny looking, tied of tongue, quick of wit and keen of eye, magnificent Statesman. I was awake… This, is why there are no FORMER Ron Paul supporters.....for once you GET IT.....you cannot UN-GET IT....once the eye and mind have SEEN....it cannot be UN-SEEN.....and once your heart is in step and in line with the heart and vision of Dr. Paul and every red blooded patriot who has ever dared shake a fist in the face of tyranny, you too are a Patriot...forever. I confide this in you, because I want you to know, you too can heal a wound between yourself and a family member through the love of your country and the message of Dr. Paul. If it can work for a battle-hardened soldier of the US Army, and his stubborn, stiff-necked mother…it can work for your family also. My son and I, do not always see eye to eye, but I know for a fact...when the time comes and we must make our own personal decisions as to, "which side of the line" we will be on; I know my son and I will be standing shoulder to shoulder in defense of our country and the ideals awakened within each of us by Dr. Paul and his vision of “Freedom and Liberty for All.” By: L. K. Treat

this touches me deeply

I get so frustrated when my friends and family dont take any of this seriously. Its worth the scorn and insults and the end of the day we cannot relent. I speak for myself when I say I have never in my life had the oppurtunity to stand for somthing that really matters. We each have our own story about how we woke up and our hearts and minds changed forever. Thank you for sharing yours.

RPers at UCLA Climb Trees to Watch Ron Paul!

Here's one newscast that at 1:14 shows people in trees watching Constitution's Champion.

Here's a second newscast showing people in trees. The tree climbers are at 1:50. I also like the scene a few seconds later where guys are banging the blue fense cover in the crowd's clamor for RP.

I don't know how to apply a link so that it starts at that time in the video, so you'll have to locate those times if you want to get right to them. Enjoy, everyone!

Here are your HTML anchors with minute:second tokens to start.

Dear A-B--B-A,

Seems you are requesting these links to start at your appointed time.

UCLA, April 2012. Many climb trees to get a better look at Ron Paul, presidential candidate, 2012

Pass minute & second start parameters to YouTube by adding them to the URL link... e.g.: #NNmNNs where NN is the minutes & seconds where you wish to start the film.

Minute, Second Marks

Thank you, Mr. Twain. I will see to it I learn what you instructed. Thank you.

And, I hope you don't mind my tag line. You are its inspiration, one whose spirit I cultivated unconsciously throughout the years and wrote here on recalling your remark on education and learning.

Welcome. Your tag line suits me.

To add to your collection of relativity...

Many public-school children seem to know only two dates--1492 and 4th of July; and as a rule they don't know what happened on either occasion.

To Mr. Twain, thank you.

To the gentleman or lady behind the name, I hope you look into character portrayal. Maybe you're up to fashioning an all things Twain (about freedom?) website. I enjoy your portrayal of him here. See you 'round, "Mark"!

Heehee. Not linking. I did

Heehee. Not linking. I did that in the comment you replied to. :P I'd like to know how to link to a point in a video. Example: make link, window with video opens and video starts at the marked time (and stops at marked time if inputted). Know how to do that? :)

That would be an 'embed' command..

Which is only allowed to be done by the moderators. I am not sure how to choose the freeze frame or specific point of when a movie will begin other than using "youtube downloader" and editing the clip to your desired length and purpose.

Thanks for posting!

Good to know the cause of real freedom is alive and well. REALLY Needed a pick me up.

Been checking some economists outlook for 2013 and beyond. Same economists, with the ability to reason, that informed us of the impending housing crash back in 2003(like the good Doctor) are sending some warnings. Debt/Fed Inflation/Fed dollar devaluation seem poised to potentially lead us into a double dip great depression with 100% inflation.... Kinda bumming on that. Hope they're wrong. The housing bubble was PAINFULLY obvious. My friends that knew how to find truth were aware(NO lame stream media-left or right) They called us Doom and Gloom, and unfortunately we were right. Others say the pain has barely begun. Crap. Either way, Dr. Paul has the only plan that has a chance.

Good to know that the free thinkers are out there in droves, aware of the root of our economic woes. Left/Right doesn't matter. We're in this together. When the federal government is right, we can hash that other stuff out like Ladies and Gentlemen in our states. If it is too late?(hopefully not) These will be the beliefs and the people that help re-build our country. Should Dr. Paul not win the nomination? We're going to need this movement going forward.

Nice seeing people who refuse to be zombies. Should Dr.Paul not win a brokered/contested convention? We need to keep these principles, and be there when the rest of the nation painfully wakes up to reality. Ron Paul!

Copied and Pasted

My comment here is copied and pasted from ThisIsFreedom's post he made today.

What a great time the trip was! Thanks to the friend of DPer ThisIsFreedom who reversed course to pick me up, I went to RP's UCLA speech and loved every minute of the trip and speech.

ThisIs is right when said we were strangers and ended the time feeling like friends. Just as we implied on our two-hour drive to what beamed a "Ron Paul Fest" vibe, I'll say it here: It's how we think -- or maybe it's that we think -- that allowed each of us to get along so well that we transitioned from one topic to the next as if we were lost friends catching up.

If saying "that we think" is inaccruate, it isn't far off the mark. I felt that way because it was apparent each of us articulated his thoughts well and where one of us didn't talk knowingly on a topic, we talked inquisitively and asked "What do you think (so-and-so)?" without hesitation and referring to someone who beforehand made a point because it opened dialogue further. Where each of us talked knowingly despite having different conclusions and understandings, always courtesy and respect were given effortlessly.

By the end of the night I thought it true what each of us mentioned on the first half of the trip, more RPers than not could meet each other for the first time and get along: It's the conditions of our support for Ron Paul is what each of us have in common, I think. Our way of thinking, that we inquire, was evident in each of us and I bet is in most RPers.

What a fun time it was being with ThisIs and his friend and the other two guys. ThisIs, thanks for the memory and pass on my thanks to your friend if you don't mind. I'll see you around, man!

FYI, I'm just posting this

FYI, I'm just posting this here to get eyeballs of whomever it may apply to.

I'm from southwestern Michigan and am looking to move some Ron Paul slim jims (issue cards) to northwest Indiana, especially the South Bend area. I'm willing to deliver about seventy-five dollars worth of them for just twenty-five bucks, all of which will be going to fund more campaigning. The campaign saves the shipping and production costs which do nothing to help the campaign, you save a lot of money period, and I can move left over inventory that would otherwise go to waste and help fund my Uncle and I for delegate campaigning in Michigan. Win-win-win= win for all.

Let me know if you're interested, thanks!

I was one of the 1st 20 in line among thousands by 8pm..like WOW

Met new RP folks, exchanging lively views on freedom & liberty..and even Fox 11 News LA reporter Christina Gonzales and her "big" cameraman in tow even did a few interviews among the first of us in line and to some Ron Paul staff. She said that Ron Paul had "quite a few interviews..." that day and the rally won't start till somewhere past 8:30-ish.

It was a very festive atmosphere...seems not like of a political gathering, but like a rock star concert tour. The crowd was about 2/3rds in their 20's. Registration crews for GOP were all over the place...alot and I mean alot were asking us time and time again if we were registered Republican. American flags were being handed out all over, albeit it was taken back later on as well as no RP posters/placards were allowed (UCLA "policies" they say..but how about us wearing Ron Paul 2012 t-shirts, like DUH!).

Overall, it was a very successful gathering for RP. It was also very good to know alot of us liberty loving Angelenos are very active, alive and well in support of Ron Paul!
