I'm Here Due To Ron Paul Only. No One Else!Submitted by pawnstorm12 on Thu, 06/14/2012 - 06:47
Rand Paul is not Ron Paul.
It's unfair to believe he is a clone of his father.
What Rand says or does is of NO consequence to the liberty cause.
But what IS of consequence is that this country let its finest opportunity BYPASS THEM THE LAST TWO Presidential election cycles!!!
It could not recognize its greatest living statesmen right before its eyes.
I am not now, nor have I ever been in this movement for anyone OTHER than Ron Paul. Period.
When he calls it quits, so do I.
Because there's nothing left in the republican party for me. The party is so racked with corruption (like an inoperable cancer), that it's beyond a cure.
We tried to reform it and it didn't work.
Our founders (the revolutionaries), might as well have tried to reform the English government from within. How far would that have gotten them?
From my observances the last 5 years, this nation is simply too far gone because the vast majority of the populace has been successfully brainwashed into being content in their servitude.
Not one American citizen has been free since the day they were born and tagged with a Social Security number. AND federal income taxes.
And that is NOT going to change because both major corrupt political parties in America ENDORSE IT.
If you think you are free, then look at your paychecks and explain to me how you are not a wage-slave about 20% of your working hours.
I'm not saying I haven't learned a ton of things by watching and listening to Dr. Paul since discovering him 5 years ago.
It's just that I no longer see the republican party as a vehicle in which to restore liberty to the United States.
I have no answers except to use the knowledge gained from my involvement in this movement to individually prepare for the inevitable collapse as the Austrians predict.
Dr. Paul explained to us over and over that we had TWO choices going forward:
Either become proactive and confront our debt crisis head-on with the ideas he suggested for a controlled reform or;
Continue on this path and the correction will come on its own, the result being uncontrolled and devastating.
Apparently the country has chosen the second path.
