Thomas Woods on the Remnant and Dr. Ron Paul

Thomas Woods on the Remnant and Dr. Ron Paul:

There is a Remnant there that you know nothing about. They are obscure, unorganized, inarticulate, each one rubbing along as best he can. They need to be encouraged and braced up because when everything has gone completely to the dogs, they are the ones who will come back and build up a new society; and meanwhile, your preaching will reassure them and keep them hanging on. Your job is to take care of the Remnant, so be off now and set about it." - From Albert Jay Nock's essay on the Remnant from biblical reference http://mises.org/daily/2892

The world changed on May 15, 2007. …

And that’s what Dr. Paul has been doing. He’s been looking for this heretofore invisible Remnant, giving them comfort, making them aware of themselves, providing them a rallying point. …

Dr. Paul has shown that the Remnant can be increased, not just found and inspired. …

In any given society the Remnant are always so largely an unknown quantity.... You do not know, and will never know, who the Remnant are, nor what they are doing or will do. Two things you do know, and no more: First, that they exist; second, that they will find you. Except for these two certainties, working for the Remnant means working in impenetrable darkness. …

Today we live at a moment of opportunity none of us could have imagined a generation ago. A revolution in information transmission is under way. Anyone can express his ideas before the whole world. All of a sudden, ideas, books, and people shunned by the Biden-to-Romney spectrum can get a worldwide hearing. Next to this, Gutenberg looks like a lazy bum.

Ron Paul did his job. He found and built up the Remnant. And there, rather than in the fleeting passage of legislation, is where genuine, long-term change will emerge.

Let it not be said that we did nothing.-Ron Paul
Stand up for what you believe in, even if you stand alone.-Sophia Magdalena Scholl

The "Remnant" are the souls who are waking up, but

who are not activists....at this point.

The crowd mentality will prevail in the end, and when the "remnant" have had enough, they will rebel, and all of a suddent the numbers will grow rapidly around the Americans who supported Dr. Paul, who surrounded Dr. Paul, who fought for Dr. Paul.
