Not to be a sappy sap sap, but to be a sappy sap sap: I love you all.Submitted by AnCapMercenary on Tue, 06/12/2012 - 17:19
Last few days have been surreal.
From the obvious to the mundane, to the extreme to the placid, to the calm and to the Austin BullDog, how single announcement could rock us all to the core...
Think it's done for?
Our foundation was not built on one announcement, nor one denouncement, though the latter we do plenty of.
Our movement was based on an intuitive understanding, only reaffirmed and reawakened by pre-existent facts and track record that prove what we already knew deep inside us, needed not be added to, nor subtracted from.
All we needed was a new alarm clock, that worked, at the right time in our lives.
We've always known what was right. Just needed a bit of nudge to remind us that we have at individual levels, always known what was right.
I am embarrassed to say however, I did engage in my own share of, while objectively pursued, but an impetus, one in which were prompted from emotive mischief.
I do not wish to see us tear each other apart, as that is precisely what they want. That, obviously is not to say that we don't need to have our legitimately warranted questions answered. But if that awaiting for an answer can only be satisfied when and if Dr. Paul himself decides to address us, personally, what good does it do to pull each other's hair out other than fulfilling our enemies' wishes, in the interim?
All of recent events, our individual reactions, outside responses, particularly one instigated by Tarpley and ones unintentionally inflamed further by AJ and Kokesh, have prompted me to revisit just what it was that helped me decide to support Dr. Paul and the message he's long championed, in the first place. Not to mention, to fundamentally revisit the real question: why do all of this?
It wasn't that I was impressed by his principled consistency, though that certainly was one of them.
It wasn't that I was impressed by his 24years of publicly verifiable voting record that demonstrated his 100% fealty to his Oath to protect and defend the Constitution FOR the United States of America against all enemies, Foreign AND Domestic, though that certainly was one of them.
It was just the sheer undeniable fact, a living proof that a Man can CHOOSE to walk his own path, despite years of ridicule, maligning, smears, and working in the pit of hell aka Washington DC for so long, and yet, not lose his way.
Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul has proven to me beyond the shadow of a doubt that a Man could be a good soul, in an insane world. That good guys eventually DO win.
So regardless of the true circumstances surrounding the recent events, the Liberty Movement shall win, not because we all came here together for policy reasons, or even rejection of ideas per se, but because we all individually realized what was important to us, and simply happened to have found other souls who happened to agree.
The only way for 'others to destroy us' is if we forget our own selves.
And who among us will let that happen, without a fight?
They attack us because we're truly FREE and Independent
They attack us because we're creative
They attack us because we're inspired, not hired
They attack us because we LOVE a set of principles
They attack us because we LOVE our Champion
They attack us because we LOVE our fellow men/women & future unborns
They attack us because we LOVE the Golden Rule
They attack us because we LOVE our enemies... sometimes
They attack us because we turn the other cheek... sometimes
They attack us because we're enthusiastic
They attack us because we believe in a set of values
They attack us because we don't just talk, we walk
They attack us because we actually do practice what we preach
They attack us because we're successful with our actions
They attack us because we're everything they're not
They attack us because we're everything they say they want to be
They attack us because they cannot seem to free themselves of their own lies
They attack us because they know they're a dying breed
They attack us because they know their time's up
They attack us because we're winning
