Never Again!Submitted by DJ77 on Sun, 05/13/2012 - 20:19
I have been a Ron Paul supporter for over a year now. I have a bumper sticker on my truck and a "Ron Paul 2012" sign in my yard. I talk to co-workers, friends, neighbors, and strangers about issues of freedom and liberty. I donated financially to the campaign. I slept good at night feeling I was helping the cause and "doing my part."
Then a month or so ago I discovered the Daily Paul and started following all the conventions that were taking place via U-stream and the like. I started learning how the conventions and delegate selection process works, Roberts Rules (never heard of them before).
Watching the people at those conventions, many who look they are still in high school, filming the events, becoming delegates, taking their involvement to the limits of their ability... That's when it hit me. I'm not doing enough. I live in Texas, the delegates to the state convention are already chosen. I missed the boat.
I'm 40 yrs old, and these "kids" are out there that know more about how government works and are doing more than I have done to advance the cause of liberty.
I failed to become a delegate..there may be someone at the convention that is for the establishment rather than me being there.
It's not good enough to be a cheerleader standing on the sidelines. Never again will I miss the opportunity to become a delegate!
