If we don't win the election it's not the endSubmitted by Ben-Jamin Tomlinson on Fri, 06/15/2012 - 16:14
I'm sure many of you were upset when Ron made the statement that he won't have enough delegates to win the nomination. Especially if you devoted time and resources into the campaign.
Well now I know how the supporters must have also felt in 2008, but they didn't quit, so for the sake of supporters from the past and supporters of the future, this liberty movement will continue no matter who is in the White House. President Obama, or President Romney will try their best to continue the status quo. But their biggest problem, the people who will soon be controlling the attention of the national stage, will be the liberty movement.
And any decision they make will be heavily scrutinized by us.
The liberty movement has played a role in the two biggest political movements in the last 4 years, OWS and the Tea Party.
How you may ask?
Well the liberty movement has convinced party line conservatives that the Republican establishment isn't truly for limited government. Although the Tea Party watered the liberty content down, it's still organized a large number of conservatives who would otherwise keep their mouth shut.
Now how did the liberty movement affect Occupy Wall Street, well because we started the movement against the federal reserve, and although Occupy Wall Street is more about liberals who hate what in their minds is "rich oppression", we have got liberals criticizing the federal reserve. Which for a group that loves Keynesian principles, it's a big feat to get them criticizing central banking.
And think of a smaller liberty movement, our movement will only grow from here, with or without the Pauls.
This movement is becoming international, I'm Canadian with aspirations of becoming a libertarian politician, however I do not see as much support for the liberty movement here, with the right people to move it along, it will become a movement.
So this is the future, the more they want to force government down our collective throat, the more our pro-individual gag reflexes start working. And the end result will be either them conforming to us, or them trying to create us as the enemy.
