Initiate Phase 2Submitted by nicholastjohnson on Tue, 06/12/2012 - 13:52
Friends of the Liberty Movement,
For those of you that don’t know me, my name is Nick Johnson. Like many of you, I’ve been swept up in the movement that Ron Paul started - I feel like I’ve been awakened from a deep sleep. I’m seeing clearer now that at any point in my life. I know what has to be done.
In order to advance our ideals of individual liberty and personal responsibility, we must seize control of the Republican party and force the party back to it’s roots. The current political environment is flawed to the point that a third party candidate has little to no chance of being elected, so we must work within the confines of the system that we have available. Liberty and Freedom must become synonymous with Republican - and we are responsible for making that happen.
I don’t care what Rand Paul said or what Ron Paul does from here on out - Dr. Paul was only the spark. We are the keepers of the flame. We must nurture and feed the flame and ensure that the flame grows into a raging inferno. Regardless of what happens from here on with the Paul campaign, we, as free men and women, must fight to ensure that the principles become mainstream.
I’m glad you asked - around the country there are liberty candidates running in hundreds of local races. They need you - I need you. A year ago, I was blind - ignorant to what was happening around me. When I started getting more involved with Dr. Paul’s campaign, it became clearer that the only way to make the changes we seek is to take back the seats of power from those who, in their collectivist utopia, are knowingly or unknowingly destroying the very foundations of our country.
I’m running for state representative. There are other brave men and women around the country running for state representative, state senate, county commissioner, sheriff, clerk, judge, school board, and US congress and senate. Every single one of those people need you.
Take a look at my website - www.nickjohnson2012.com. If you feel compelled to help me advance the cause of liberty in Georgia, please sign up to volunteer or send a donation. If you don’t want to help me, that’s fine - but whatever you do, find a candidate to help. Stop wasting time on Facebook or the Daily Paul writing well thought out and researched posts and comments - Start being the change you want to see.
Moneybombs are becoming more and more difficult - we, as a group, are tapped out. We’ve given our money, our time, our energy, and our spirit to this movement, and I realize that every new email like this drains us just a bit more.
I’m asking that you reach down into your soul - remember why you’re here, remember why you’re reading these words, remember why you’ve bled for Dr. Paul, why you’ve cried for Dr. Paul, and why you fight for Dr. Paul. YOU are the revolution! We cannot allow our group to fracture - at this critical time, we must stand firm and organize ourselves.
In conclusion, I beg of you, I implore you to find a liberty candidate that you like and that you can support. Don’t spin your wheels arguing semantics and strategy - Get out there and fight for our shared principles. I need your help - other liberty candidates need your help - and the movement needs your help. Stand firm, fight on, we are not going silently into the night - we’re just initiating Phase 2.
