Everybody. I can't believe there were so many responses. It really means a lot to me. I will continue to fight!
Inspiration: Stimulation of the mind or emotions to a high level of feeling or activity.
"The battle, Sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the
active, the brave. Besides, Sir, we have no election. If we were base
enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest.
There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! ..." ~ Patrick Henry, in his famous "The War Inevitable" speech, March, 1775.
Like Sam Adams and Thomas J, like George W., I love them! And most of us would take a bullet for Ron Paul! Give us liberty or give us death. Life is a test and we're just passing through.. onto our next destination!
liberty is bigger than an election.
bigger than ron paul.
and bigger than you!
chances are you have a long life ahead so look ahead and beyond.
remember that Americans elected presidents like Ron Paul and maybe even better, and still we ended up in this situation of complete corruption in all systems of government.
this isnt a 1-time battle and all of us need to know that. its not over if Ron Paul is elected and its not over if hes not elected.
its literally never over.
maybe one day, at an old old age, just like someone else i know, when the country has completely forgotten itself again, you will be the one to awaken it.
maybe you will one day teach your child about the r3volution and about liberty. maybe you will die. maybe your child will be just another old guy starting another revolution.
liberty is so big!!!
He's perfect. How is that he is perfect? He's a miracle. Name anything he's said or done that wasn't pure.
Time for a bonfire...
Always makes me laugh.
Our first real and organized attempt to PROVE fraud at the polls, get involved!
don't get mad, get EVEN!
Unless Ron Paul! -Lorax
I have something to be inspired about, even though we didn't do better than I thought. On Saturday, we can win the Louisiana Caucus, and therefore, maybe get the largest number of delegates out of Louisiana. And another thing, we have the next sleuth of primaries in Rand's backyard. I'm hoping the campaign is smart to get him to do at least a couple of speeches for Ron!
I feel your pain. Last night I was feeling the same way, and then remembered this video that I'd seen a while back. Especially hearing RP's words on SquawkBox about finishing the race. Watch, and let it motivate you to action!
and shut up or i'll hit you with the cattle prod.
bring your wife and kid over here, we need to probe them.
did we say you could eat that?
now sit down and watch tv.
"The two weakest arguments for any issue on the House floor are moral and constitutional"
"I am Ron Paul, and I am the champion of the constitution!"
The constitutional revival has begun! Young students all across America are marveling over our founding documents. In fact, folks of all ages are doing the same. The conversation has changed in America. As we reach critical mass, the nation hangs by threads. But there is one man who has created the ray of hope! One man who has ignited the fire of libery! Let liberty catch with the rising wind!
What none of need is a bad vacation, and that happens. So don't let it happen to you.
If you are like me, you have been working hard for Ron Paul to be president. More than that, you joined the GOP, petitioned and earned a seat on a Republican Central Committee being operated by RINOS who HATE Ron Paul and don't like you for liking Ron Paul. You have gone to Tea Parties, and meetings, and talked to neighbors, knocked on doors, made phone calls, sent emails, sacrificed family and friends, gone broke, been shunned, put off, rejected because of your enthusiasm for Ron Paul. It will get you.
Give yourself a vacation. A mini vacation. Forget Ron Paul for a few days or doing anything for the campaign. Give yourself permission to take a break. Take yourself out to a nice dinner in another town you always wanted to visit, or to a spa.. or go to museums or art galleries, or just do something to enjoy being alive. Take yourself out on a date. Don't be cheap, but impress the good person within you, reward them, LOVE them, not for Ron Paul, like don't buy a Ron Paul tee shirt, or Ron Paul chocolate, NO Ron Paul... just for a few days... and chances are, you will renew, refresh, get new ideas, and feel yourself wanting to volunteer for the campaign again.
What I'm suggesting to you to do, is how a person takes care of themselves and gives themselves the permission, experiences, things and LOVE to make life GOOD.
Don't just go to a movie... don't cut yourself short... do something wonderful, wild, sane, exciting... different, GROW, be FREE, and then come back and tell us how great life is and how much you LOVE Ron Paul!! :D
STAND WITH RAND 2016
and the message needs to be truthful, heartfelt and consistent so that people will at their own pace realize what is really going on. It is really about raising awareness and ultimately becoming educated to the fundamentals like fractional reserve banking and the hierarchy of power that has come to dominate our lives through a growing police state, massive laws against our fellow people, endless wars to profit the few and all the other sad tragedies that are spill over from all the flawed policies that the ruling class have embraced.
That is why this is so much fun.
They can not stop us in the delegate race.
edit: Double post, was too excited!
Had a good day at work where I was able to read up on some liberty subjects. Then took my oldest daughter to the library where she listened to a lecture by Marilyn Barnewell who was extremely informative on inside banker information and who I will try to help push state bank initiatives here in CO.
There is a lot of work to do so don't get bummed. Get excited and work with other like minded people and take action. It is the most fulfilling thing to do instead of depend on a status quo populace who aren't going to do much for the cause of liberty.
We have a lot of events coming up here locally in Grand Junction, CO. And even though we finished our state convention we are still organized and are expanding our network of people to try and change things at the local and state level. I was at the republican hispanic caucus yesterday, I have voter registration training tomorrow, A meet and greet later in the week with our awesome rep Ray Scott who is a delegate-at-large and may just vote for Ron Paul at National. We have an anti-fed booth at the May Day Occupy event as well as state banking booth at a tea party on the 4th. We also have Adam Kokesh and Tisha Casida visiting Saturday May 12th for a fundraiser for her independent run for 3rd congressional district.
Fun times indeed!
but i guess here it goes
Go get involved in the Republican party. It's a whole different ballgame. There's all kinds of dirty politics being played, but if you can get your Liberty team organized you can truly make your vote count.
The weakness of the false left/right paradigm is that pseudo authority has to be given to the parties in order to make them look legitimate. This pseudo authority can be overtaken and used as actual authority, and that is what we are doing.
I don't know that the establishment has truly considered the possibility that we could organized as well as we have and begin to take over the party. As we take over the party they have to allow us to wield the authority that they have fooled us into believing it has, to fail to do this would be to forfeit the authority of the party system altogether and expose the illegitimacy of the left/right paradigm.
Most of the local Republican organizations are run by older establishment people who are more than willing to be the cog in a command and control/top down system in exchange for a few perks and a trip to the convention and a plaque on their wall.
They literally cannot see it coming when a group of patriots who previously never knew each other organize on facebook to show up at a local convention and take the place over.
After all, when Ron Paul wins and the real work of scaling down the feds starts, more and more emphasis will be put on state and local levels. People need to get involved now so we can be ready to make the changes needed when the opportunity comes.
"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters." Benjamin Franklin
Thursday we'll pick up some delegates in Louisiana and hopefully we'll dominate the Alaska state convention!
This isn't a sprint it's a marathon, 20 years minimum.
Dr Paul explains why he is in it to support delegates who have labored for four years to get in a position to promote liberty.
