The Love, Integrity and Courage of Ron PaulSubmitted by elviejo on Wed, 05/16/2012 - 14:00
Update for this morning..... DONATE, DONATE, DONATE
This morning, over my coffee, I suddenly saw the events of the past few days in a different light. I know it's LONG, and you can read it or not.....but I think it makes sense, based upon the Dr. Paul we all have come to know.
DELEGATE STRATEGY: Not being a stupid man, and having been surrounded by the corruption and pure evil of the enemy for all these years, Dr. Paul MUST have known that his chances of securing this nomination were "slim to none". EVEN IF he had been able to grow the Revolution to a majority of the populous, the power structures were going to do whatever it took to prevent Dr. Paul from ripping everything they have worked for away from them. They own the media.... The voting machines... The party structures... The debates.
Despite the odds, (and, quite frankly, at risk to his own life and that of his family) Dr. Paul entered the race. He and his team realized that the "delegate strategy" was the ONLY POSSIBILITY - the "poor man's path" - of securing the nomination, and would ALSO advance the overthrowing of the "old guard" in the Republican party. (If you are outgunned and outnumbered you have to use strategy and cunning in order to win)
Unfortunately, the "delegate strategy" could only succeed if the delegate pool was DIVIDED among several candidates in order to deny the elite's "chosen one" the solid majority. The irony was so delicious. The reason that so many candidates ran in the first place (upon the orders of their masters) - was to keep the "non-Romney" voters, the "Tea Partiers" from looking at Ron Paul (since he was really the only "outsider"). They kept the public's attention divided both on the (very packed) stage of the debates, and in the primary voting booths. Dr. Paul and his team brilliantly USED this scheme of the elites to his advantage.......... Until the evil ones figured it out.
When the remaining "non-Romney" candidates finally dropped out it made RP's chances for success in the ELECTION even slimmer. But it did NOT mean that continued participation in the delegate process and the "campaign" process was a wasted effort. The incredible numbers at RP's ralleys were an encouraging sign that the message of Liberty is growing exponentially. The longer he could get the message out, the higher the number of "converts" to the cause of Liberty and the more change could be instilled in the Republican Party, thus insuring a brighter and freer future for all of us.
MONEY: With the delegate strategy the only mode of competing, and the FUNDRAISING DRYING UP, there was NO WAY to continue with the constant travel, the private jet, and all of the "campaigning" that he had been doing. This is just a fact. Dr Paul does not go into debt (which is why we love him). He does not get irresponsible with his campaign funds. He runs a tight ship. And he does not have a key to the executive washroom at Goldman Sachs.
He himself wrote us at least 3 letters in the past few weeks telling us that unless there was a sizeable influx of money, the staff would be having to "re think" the strategy for the coming months. He told us this over and over..... we simply did not want to hear.
His letter on Monday merely stated the same thing. Our campaign does not get the big bucks from the elites! It CANNOT compete in a straight out "campaign" mode in places like California, etc.
VIOLENCE... THE FINAL STRAW: Although RP always knew that the fight for THIS nomination was going to need a miracle.... He still put 100% of his effort, his time, and his LIFE on the line to go all out to make it happen. And he knew that even if "reality" dictated that it was a long shot, it was still a shot, AND.... Would produce great fruit in the future.
However..... Once it was clear that
A) the Delegate Strategy had been sabotaged by the elites, and therefore his chances for actually securing the nomination were ALMOST non-existent.
B) The funds didn't allow for a real all out "campaign" in the coming months, and
C) The process was becoming violent
Dr. Paul decided that he needed to "cool things down" and emphasize the reality of the situation so that WE could make our decisions based on the cold, hard facts.
I think the thing that surprised and frightened Dr. Paul the most was not the dirty tricks and shenanigans of the State officials..... But the violence by the "senior citizen Romney supporters" in recent conventions. Physical assaults and arrests instigated by the Romney attendees themselves made the situation intolerable to Dr. Paul. He knew that this hysteria was only going to get worse as the Hannity's, the Rush's and the Levin's started demonizing the RP supporters as traitors, and vehicles for Obama's re-election. Someone was going to get seriously hurt, once the "old guard" started seeing the RP supporters as a bigger and bigger "threat".
I believe it was out of his LOVE and LOYALTY to US that he decided that (via his various spokespeople) we needed to know EXACTLY where things stand, so we could make our OWN decisions on the value of continuing..... AND, he wanted the press to "cool things down" in the minds of the Romney supporters. Put them back to sleep.... Keep the conventions calm.... And allow the Revolutionaries to do their thing in a more rational and calm setting.
Dr. Paul is the most honest, dedicated and pure man I have ever had the priviledge to know. He has spent his life in pursuit of liberty for us and for the country. He has never given in to temptation, he has remained uncorruptable, and his integrity is beyond reproach. He has risked his life in each of his Presidential campaigns, and in this one even moreso as his popularity has increased rapidly.
But he is not willing to deceive us, especially when it is getting to be a more dangerous fight as our numbers grow. He needed us to know that if we decide to continue taking the next hill... It can't be for "HIM".... It has to be for LIBERTY itself. If we are going to take the torch of Liberty and continue running with it, we must be doing it with eyes wide open to the dangerous battle ahead. He wants our passion and dedication to be to the CAUSE, and not to the man or the presidency. He is willing to continue supporting OUR efforts in any way he can... But this must be OUR fight, and it not going to be over in November.
SO, now that we know the truth, what will our response be? I know mine.
GOD BLESS YOU DR. PAUL. And THANK YOU !!! You have made all of us better and more informed human beings. We won't let you down!
