"What would RON do?" A battle cry.Submitted by AnotherBlueRepu... on Tue, 05/15/2012 - 13:51
Ladies and Gentlemen of the R3VOLUTION,
I have been a part of this revolution for less that 2 months. But I am on FIRE.
Right now, we are angry for good reasons. That is all too clear. But please consider:
Like us supporters, Ron Paul has been mocked for years.
Like us supporters, Ron Paul has been laughed at for years.
Like us supporters, Ron Paul has been lied about for years.
Like us supporters, Ron Paul has not been given a level playing field for years.
But UNlike us supporters, Ron Paul has met these obstacles in a different way.
Civility, nonchalance, non-violence, and steadfastness are what has elevated him above the chaos and corruption, and what galvanized him into a statesman deserving of such extraordinary respect.
If you are a true revolutionary for a voluntary and free society, I challenge you now to live like one.
Stand unshaken by the campaign's confusing behavior.
Stand unshaken by the media's immoral behavior.
Stand unshaken by the American public's ignorance.
I, along with many others, have a belief that the campaign's announcement was specifically intended to cool off the turnouts from Romney supporters at delegate conventions, to restore their false sense of having won, to let us get back to our revolutionary business of winning state conventions without so much chaos (which has resulted in bad publicity EVERY time, against which we have to spend time typing and talking for hours).
So if you still have hope, so if you still believe in LIBERTY and PEACE, I urge you lastly and most sincerely to listen to my proposal. The revolution can continue on at it's current rate--or it can turn up the heat and respond to the opposition. How do we turn up the intensity? How do we fight harder than we have been?
It starts by understanding how UNITY, CIVILITY, and DECORUM further our cause. Every hateful comment, every sarcastic remark, every name calling to supporters and non-supporters alike, is a bullet to the heart of our movement.
If you believe in the ideals of Dr. Paul, and the dream of a peaceful, free society, then you must take responsibility for your anger and understand how to turn it into POSITIVE action. We are not the GOP establishment. We are not corrupt and immoral. We are not reactive little children. There is a difference between a foot soldier and a revolutionary. We are aware on an intellectual and moral level of what we are fighting for, and part of the fight is to BE a member of the peaceful society that we envision. So I urge you, be the CAPTAIN of the restless forces of your actions. Do not give into negativity, name calling, angry ranting, whining, rudeness.
Each of us has a personal and minute-by-minute choice to become more like the peaceful and steadfast heroes that we admire. Let us be driven to positive action, encouragement, sensitivity, and consideration. We will turn the tide and TURN UP THE HEAT MORE THAN YOU CAN IMAGINE.
They will never know what hit them.
For Liberty and Peace,
