Where is the love in the R3VOLUTION?Submitted by JackieK on Sun, 06/03/2012 - 16:04
Think about this for a second. I see a lot of upset people, complaining that Ron Paul has been silent, the campaign is leaving us behind, not supporting us, ect. When a statement IS released, it is the same thing. Complaints that it isn't good enough, accusations of selling out to the GOP, insults hurled at Wead, Benton, Rand Paul, even the good doctor himself.
Did you really think this would be easy? Did you really think we would just go in and sweep every state? Who here expected the GOP to lay down it's agenda to make way for us?
When things don't go our way, when we get down and feel lost and need some direction, is attacking really accomplishing that? We have reason enough to be frustrated. We've been cheated, bullied, silenced by the media, ridiculed for our beliefs and even for following the rules. Oh well! Such is life.
For those of you who dare to criticize Ron Paul, all I can say is shame on you. Year after year, bill after bill, vote after vote, Ron Paul has stood alone. When things didn't go his way, when his voice was unheard, ignored, condemned, silenced, mocked, and his words were twisted, did he whine and cry? Did he throw fits and start pointing fingers?
Here's what I think. As much as we need encouragement, as much as we need hope, we must encourage and give hope to Ron Paul. Did you ever stop to think that he needs this as well? Has it occured to you that insulting his family members is a whole new level of disrespect to him? When has he ever let us down? When has he ever turned on us? How would you feel about him if he personally insulted your family and those working tirelessly to help you?
This is a movement. Let's keep it moving in a positive direction. United we stand, divided we fall. We must individually be the glue that holds us together collectively. Overcome negativity, in order to bring light to the darkness. :) As Michael Nystrom says, "Watch out for the hole!"
