I'm so proud of my girlfriend

Being raised by my dad who was a neo-con, I would often hear the words, "If you live under my roof, you are voting republican." It was his way, or the highway.

To be clear, that's not why I'm republican now. But perhaps it helped me learn to be the exact opposite with the person who I might be spending the rest of my life with. I never want to be like that.

So when I started listening to Ron Paul and his message, I did it quietly in my room by myself, just so I wouldn't impose it on anybody else out of respect. When I talked about him, it was casual and never forceful, just like his foreign policy: lead by example.

1 1/2 years later, my girlfriend was just as excited as I was to see Ron Paul at UC Davis, where she goes to school. She even made public announcements in her classes that day to promote the event while rocking her "Start Wars" tee shirt which underneath said "The Empires Blowback"

Even a news reporter had to interview her to ask her what it meant, and she proudly accepted the question on camera saying that the foreign policy we have adopted now does way more harm and comes with consequences and perhaps we should consider the alternatives.

When I was standing off the side with one of the Youth for Ron Paul members helping me fill out my voter registration form, I couldn't stop smiling.

Standing near the front of the crowd, our hands clenched tightly together, we both started to jump up and down when we saw the jet-black SUV pull up next to the stage. My heart has never beat so fast. The energy was amazing, but most of all, I spent one of the greatest days with my favorite person.

I'm so proud of my girlfriend.

You better KEEP that one!

Give us clear vision, that we may know where to stand and what to stand for - because unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything.

As a former necon, neocons

As a former necon, neocons are essentially uninformed libertarians who are exploited by fears that are based on lies. Their fear and passion is misdirected in order to build power and fortune for evils such as the military and prison industrial complex. Reagan was 100% correct when he stated that the root of conservatism is libertarianism.

You Are Correct

I too was a neo-con, and didn't even know it. After discarding all the misinformation, I began to realize that I have always supported what Ron Paul stands for. I want a t-shirt that says "Ron, where have I been all your life?"
