For Paul's "True Believers," A Study In American Optimism

They tried to smear him, that didn't work, they tried to make him invisible, that didn't work. Now they are trying to dismiss us as unrealistic idealists: http://www.cnn.com/2012/04/26/politics/paul-true-believers/i...

True Believers

Anyone here remember this?

Feb. 20 2007
Ron Paul 2008 PEC video (announcing the formation of Presidential exploratory commitee)

I refer to this clip as "the lost prophesy (prediction) of Dr Paul". (from the 2min to 3min mark)
"We stand on the threshold of a true revolution of ideas."

At the 4min mark he mentions the "true believers".

CNN just blocked me from posting comments

Because I posted this:

I am a Ron Paul supporter.
This election season, no candidate will get my vote for the Office of President of the United States of America except for Ron Paul.There will be no exceptions. If he does not win the nomination, I will write his name on the ballot.
No amount of slick talking, flip-flopping, wooing, cajoling,threatening, or condescending will persuade me to vote for any other contender for that office.
You don't want to admit it, but you know that the Republican Party cannot beat Obama without me, a Ron Paul supporter. It's long past time you admit it.
You and I have conflicting goals. I will only cast a vote for liberty, for peace, for small government, for fiscal sanity and respect for the Constitution of the United States and adherence to the oath of office of the Presidency. You however are content merely to vote for whatever Republican the GOP leadership and the media approve of.
I will not move. I cannot be persuaded. You cannot win without me.
I am not here to convince you that Ron Paul's positions are superior.I am not here to convince you that his foreign policy is in line with traditional conservatism. I am not here to convince you that his understanding of economics put everyone else in Washington to shame. I am not even here to convince you that the positions of the other candidates are not materially different than Obama.
No, I don't need to do any of that. I only need to tell you that without me, you have lost. If you do not vote for Ron Paul in your Primary or Caucus, you are already defeated. If you fail to nominate Ron Paul to be the Republican candidate for President, Barack Hussein Obama will serve a second term.
This is not blackmail.This is not a threat. This is a simple statement of fact.
I stand firm and I will not accept anything less.
Ron Paul 2012.

Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

CNN (& other LSM characters): schizophrenic & losing audience...

They are ordered by their bosses to ignore & belittle RP & the massive people supporting him: a quick way to lose their already shrinking viewership.

So, they throw in some tongue-in-cheek accounts of how MASSIVE our movement has become, every once in a while, hoping to lure us back to their channels. . . nope, it won't work. We want rigorous, healthy, wholesome TRUTH in journalism, judicial system, politics and in our own personal lives.

Excellence and virtues, free from propagandized delusions & illusions, may not be fashionable in LSM's status quo circles, but are STILL worth living by for many of us.
