Relax. Keep An Open Mind :)Submitted by JoeDanger on Sat, 06/09/2012 - 04:43
Been seeing a lot of chaos round these parts lately. Suppose that's to be expected. Many of us have spent a lot of time, energy, money, blood, sweat and tears to get here.
We chose this path.
We knew it wouldn't be easy. We've seen every roadblock imaginable thrown at our movement, in an effort to get us to back down, concede, give up. Most of these boulders thrown at us have come from the MSM, and that's been frustrating to deal with, as they wield magnitudes more power over the populace than we do. But we've overcome that. Many believe that there are forces at work within the campaign itself, that are, intentionally or not, sabotaging our mission to put Ron in the White House. That may be the case. There are definitely people out there who get off on creating accounts here and trolling, trying to divide us and demoralize us. We deal with it, civilly, as Dr. Paul would.
We may not win this one. We may win this one. This has not been determined yet.
We're sending a battalion down to Tampa, to defend Liberty. We've done all we can in this 2012 skirmish. We've donated, we've spread the word, knocked on doors, talked sensibly to people, put up signs, volunteered time, stuck our necks out in conversations that we'd normally just nod and agree, and dealt with the consequences...because we believe in the message Dr. Paul has re-introduced to us.
We shall continue to do so.
We shall continue to do so because those of us who picked up the banner, those of us who became "learned" in regards to how the system works, and why it needs to be changed, we were never interested in "being on the winning team". This campaign has been about We the People bringing about positive change in the United States. We joined this fight because we believed in something greater than ourselves. We looked to the future and saw an America that we don't want our children to suffer.
If anything, MSM be damned, this will be our legacy. We planted the seeds, among many rows of people. The young, the old, the kinda old (that's me;-)...The message we brought to bear, and the perspectives we have brought, and shall continue to bring, will resonate for generations. This, right now, is only the second engagement in the battle for Liberty.
Ron's been the General. Generals retire. He's served with top honors. He has inspired thousands of people to believe in the principles that have made this country one of the greatest places to live on Earth. He's been at this for a long time, and may actually become more powerful once he's out of office. But that's up to us. Are we really going to give up on this noble cause because our General knows his limits? Of course not!
We, the Remnant, as he called us, are going to continue this r3V0Lution because it's become part of us. Ron Paul was, at this junction, the torchbearer, and he will continue to be. The fun part is that he's mustered a veritable army of principled people from their apathy, inspired those who NEVER would have given politics a second look, awakened millions to "the man behind the curtain" and through these people, change will occur.
In the next few months, we will experience many ups and downs. Those who have just recently joined us may experience great emotional swings, having been only recently introduced to these ideas. We must show tolerance to these individuals, yet at the same time, discourage rhetoric that is destructive (non-constructive)to the movement.
Remember, you can't please everybody, and things happen. We are organic, we adapt, we counter. We remain logical in spite of illogical acts. We remain focused, because those who seek to destroy us wish us to become unfocused. We persevere, like Dr. Paul did when he was made fun of, and treated poorly. because we, like he, believe in America, the Constitution, and Liberty.
So don't let the naysayers get you down. Don't allow the spooks and trolls to re-frame what we're doing here. Don't let them set the narrative. The movement is far from over...but so far, we're winning.
And a lot can happen between now and Tampa. We've voted, and sent our delegates on a mission. Godspeed to them. May they remain strong in the face of collectivist hoopla and a demand by their peers to display "party unity". May their convictions guide their tongues when they speak of the need for Dr. Paul to be the nominee. May they show empathy to those who have been indoctrinated by their televisions and the talking heads that work for the Matrix, yet stay resolute and encouraging to those who need guidance. May they inspire everyone they come in contact with at the convention, through their words and their actions, to help become a part of history and vote their conscience. May they have ample video recorders at the ready to catch any agent provocateurs engaged in shenanigans.
He gave a speech today. Sounded like he inspired Texas. There's a bill to audit the Fed in July? Ya don't say...
This 2012 battle is not over. Not by a long run.
