Don't You Quit

This has been a favorite poem of mine since I was a child. I am not sure who the author is. Hope you enjoy:)


When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,

When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit-
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,

As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a fellow turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don't give up though the pace seems slow -
You may succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than

It seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the struggler has given up
Whe he might have captured the victor's cup;
And he learned too late when the night came down,
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out -

The silver tint in the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It might be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit -
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

Quitting isn't an option, we

Quitting isn't an option, we have gained so much we must focus on what has been accomplished rather than the lost opportunities. It is not due to all of our hard work we haven't gained as much as we hoped for, rather that we still have a lot of folks who are too blind or stupid to realize the truth. But we will keep marching, when you look back at some of the old videos of Dr Paul and how stupid folks were back years ago, you can see the progress made. Back then he stood pretty much alone, look how long it took for folks to listen to him-he never quit, so I feel I owe my part to never quit either. Besides feeling defeated and wanting to quit is what the freedom haters want us to do, I determined long ago, I will always do the opposite of whatever they want. :)

Not quitting.

What I would request of the quitters here who are all downing the campaign and Ron Paul and Rand Paul, PLEASE PACK YOUR BAGS AND BEGONE!.

We don't need you and your negative trolling around here, trying to drag everyone else down to the bottom with you.

Just leave.
Get it?
You don't need to have a big ceremony. Just close your accounts and go away so that the serious people can be less distracted as there is work to be done.
If any of you ever were RP supporters, and are now haters, please use the last bit of decency you might have left, and go away so that supporters can do their important work without your whining.


We have far too many fair weather friends eh?

The world is my country, all mankind are my brethren, and to do good is my religion.
-Thomas Paine

fair weather friends are

fair weather friends are better than people who walk through a hail storm into the path of a tornado constantly repeating "It is SO sunny out!" and that is EXACTLY what saying "We have the delegates baby!" is doing.
