What has changed?Submitted by LibertyHill945 on Mon, 06/11/2012 - 02:24
Like most of you, the Rand Paul announcement caused a stir of emotions within me: anger, disbelief, confusion, etc. I was out of town this weekend and didn't get a chance to catchup on all the feedback from DPers, Hunter, Rockwell, Jones, etc.; and to be honest, I really didn't want to. I was in such dismay that I wanted to forget about everything and try to at least enjoy my weekend. Of course, I couldn't stop thinking about it, coming up with my own justifications that teetered from all sorts of possibilities of how this could happen.
Then I began asking myself, what has changed? Does this really even matter? The only people that really care about this is us! The MSM has no power, everyone I was with this weekend had no idea what happened, remember, they're asleep?!
Dr. Paul always compares the campaign to this track days, "I never worried about the finish line, I just ran as fast and as hard as I can." The race isn't over, it doesn't matter how far back we are, or how ahead we may actually be, we have no idea, but we can't worry about the finish line regardless of the bumps and bruises we hit on the way on the obstacles we face everyday. We have to run as fast and as hard as we can! The revolution won't be won over night, it happens day by day, convention by convention, and election by election.
Remember the bubble that us DPers live in. Nobody cares about this stuff as much as we do, nobody really knows who Rand Paul is...hell, this country has been dumb down so badly many people don't even know who Romney is and don't realize there is a presidential election this year. People don't care! So Rand's endorsement means absolutely nothing. Dr. Paul knows this, and he expects us to realize this, because as long as the MSM (who live in their own bubble and think they still have the power that they used to) convince themselves this is a bigger deal than it actually is, they'll continue to let their guard down while we, the awake ones, take over this country.
We are labeled Paulbots because those who call us that think we will live and die by Dr. Paul, yet, the reality is we live and die by his ideas. His ideas are so powerful that it doesn't even matter who his own son endorses for us to be even slightly swayed; the good doctor himself could endorse Romney and we would reject it with a much more fierce fervor.
In the end, it's not about Rand, Romney, Obama, or Ron; it's about us and our future. Nothing has changed, we still have conventions to win, Tampa to rock, a general election on the way, and most importantly (what Dr. Paul has been doing so well and for so long) people to educate! A lot can happen in that time and we have no idea how things will turn out, but we must continue to run as fast and hard as possible.
