BE Ron PaulSubmitted by Milton on Thu, 06/21/2012 - 23:55
When Ron Paul did not get his way in congress (pretty much always) did he pack up his constitution and go home?
When Dr. Paul was attacked as a nut job or a lunatic or worse, did he get mad and lash out in anger?
When lies and misinformation were used against him (always) did Dr. Paul resort to these same tactics?
Did Ron Paul ever refuse to work with someone on a particular issue because they happened to disagree on others?
Was Ron Paul only out for himself or did Ron Paul support others who had similar views as his own?
Could anyone here even imagine Ron Paul using violence to make a point?
Did Ron Paul ever quit?
Perhaps as we support the man and his principles, we should endeavor to emulate his way. So many of my respected fellow DPers have become quite testy and cantankerous as of late.
I am tired of hearing "noone but Paul" and "Rand is a traitor" and
"I'm outta here if RP doesnt win" and "burn it down" and all the rest. Seriously have you ever heard Dr. Paul speak? Does he say these things? Is he so childish as to throw a tantrum when he does not get his way?
C'mon folks, Ron Paul has been at this diligently for 40 years, taking every insult and insinuation in beautiful stride. Don't be so quick to anger, or so quick to quit, or so quick to cast blame and spread vitriol. This is not the Ron Paul way.
I encourage you to study the man just as you study his principles and philosophy. He is possibly the most effective politician in our generation. Others may win elections but RP created a movement, a RLOVEUTION! As we continue to carry his banner perhaps we can all try to be a little more magnanimous, a little classier. A little more like Ron Paul himself.
Quiet resolve is very effective in the long run. So as we head to Tampa and beyond I encourage everyone to check themselves and make a better effort to BE RON PAUL.
