I've lost a lot of respect for this movement todaySubmitted by N_G_J on Mon, 05/14/2012 - 17:50
... this movement today.
I used to be in awe of the collective intellect of this community and, to a degree, I still am ... just to a much lesser degree.
All of the naysaying going on around here, when Ron Paul clearly stated that it's not over, is absolutely ridiculous. The very definition of knee-jerk.
Ron Paul: our father, our muse, our standard-bearer has NOT abandoned us; in fact it's closer to the opposite. This strategy is due to OUR lack of financial support. The movement is several times larger than 2007-08, and we're so much closer to the prize, yet we haven't even come close to breaking the 6 million a day record we set. That is very puzzling to me.
Are the huge college crowds just one school trying to beat the attendance numbers set by other schools? I don't think so. You'd think we would've smashed the 6 million mark by now, not just due to our larger numbers but also, as earlier stated, due to the fact that our guy is doing so much better and actually WINNING this time. I just don't understand.
Yes, the economy is worse, but not THAT much worse.
Another thing ... let me ask you all a question: Is Ron Paul stupid? Is Ron Paul a pussy? Apparently, despite the OVERWHELMING evidence to the contrary, a lot of you think so. He'd have to be if what many of you claim is true. If Benton and Wead are saboteurs then Dr. Paul must be stupid and/or afraid of them. Why else would he not fire their asses? Ron Paul is brilliant; Ron Paul is the most courageous man of our time and probably the most fearless "politician" in our country's history, but some of you believe that he's too stupid and/or too afraid to rid himself of saboteurs. Really?
TRUST OUR GUY! He has the advantage of 1) being smarter than any of us and 2) having THE best vantage point in all of this. He is THE insider in our movement. He's the only one who knows what he's truly thinking and what's truly in his heart. Benton and Wead only know what he tells them and we know a small fraction of that.
The negativity is going to destroy this movement. We're fracturing. And why? Because, apparently, the MSM--who you all never believe--said Ron Paul quit and NOW you believe them.
