How a Ron Paul "moment" helped me find my car.Submitted by robbylane on Mon, 04/30/2012 - 12:35
I have a part-time job working as a DJ & Karaoke host at a local nightclub. On Saturday night this past weekend, I arrived at work, almost LATE, so I hurriedly parked my car in the big parking lot without giving it much thought. At the end of my shift, I walked outside and into that parking lot, but could not recall where I had parked. This was at 2am in a dark parking lot, aided only by the slight cast of a corner streetlight. I spotted a vehicle that, in silhouette form, resembled mine. I walked up that vehicle, only to discover that it was NOT nine. So I pivoted around toward the parking lot of parked vehicles. While scanning the backside of each one, I suddenly spot the ony vehicle with a bumper sticker that is strategically-mounted on the TRUNK of the vehcile. It was MY car....and my Ron Paul bumper sticker. As I began to walk toward my car, I smiled and actually SAID to myself, "Of course".
The "of course" statement came out of me because that Ron Paul bumper sticker shined out....IN THE DARK!!! This is NO stretch of the truth. It also served as a very strong metaphor.....a message that screamed out, "Ron Paul is our guiding light". He is "there for us" to "get our back", trying to guide us FROM the dark and INTO the light. Never, in my 46 years of living thus far, have I been more proud to "wear" a bumper sticker on my automobile.
