"Ron Paul Can't Win"

How many times have you heard those words?

I was in the grocery store and it’s Mother’s day talking to a store manager in the flower section when my oldest son, 2500 miles away, texts me to say he was now an official state delegate for Ron Paul! Exhilarated,I asked, where he was from. Maine, he said. I congratulated him on being from a state where freedom lovers were taking over the Republican Party and proceeded to the check out. There I asked the checkout lady if she had any interest in politics? A little, she said. I told her of the fact that our country has the opportunity of a lifetime and Ron Paul is the focal point of that opportunity. The man in front of me, a few years my senior, said ”HE CAN'T WIN”.
I looked at him dumb founded, What do you mean
‘He can't win?’
”I agree with everything he says but he doesn’t have a chance”.
You are saying that because.. that is all you hear.
“No really, you’re wasting your time”

Now wait a minute, this is what I hear you saying. You are saying that truth and honor and integrity no longer have a place in this country! Is that what you tell your children and your grandchildren….that they must resign themselves to be governed by hypocrites and puppets!?
“I know you mean well but you are really just wasting your time”
Sir, my son just worked his ass off in his state so those grandchildren of yours will have a chance to flourish in this life and you say he cannot win and he and I are wasting our time…Please give me a break

Are you so discouraged that you can’t even imagine someone like Ron Paul could actually win. My sons, my wife and friends, all believed “He CAN win”,
”He can't win,” he repeated.
He had that deadpan look on his face, typical of all the He Can't Winners.
By this time we are in the parking lot. As he climbed into his car I got a glimpse of his wife and saw the same look on her face.

My heart went out to him….from the depth of me I said, you don’t have to give up on your ideals….

Maybe I imagined it but I am fairly sure I saw in those last moments a little smile, a little gleam from his eye as it connected with mine. They both waved as they drove away.

OK, all you folks at the Daily Paul, who I have grown to appreciate and who have helped bring me into the battle; we have all been churched by the MSM & the two political parties into becoming professional hypocrites…their slick, slippery, coy, and self assured words mesmerized us. Now what is it going to take to make our countrymen & women come out from among them?

I know this is uncomfortable…..to hell with comfortable. How can we remain comfortable when everything we ever earned is being sucked away from us? How can we be comfortable when men and women who Produce & Earn Nothing are stealing everything from us who produce and earn everything!!?

My head & heart are full of the REAL Reasons people say he can't win…here are some but please add yours.

I am scamming the system so I cannot afford to change it.
Bottom up government is a thing of the past.
I am jaded, aren’t you?
Lying, cheating, manipulating, posturing, is The way of life in this country and it will
Never change.

Every time you hear it
You are hearing someone who has found a way to excoriate his heart.
You are hearing a person who has given up on the ideals that bring us together in freedom and love.

You are hearing what a small minority heard in 1775,
It is impossible to be free of Great Britain.

We can't win.

People only say that because

People only say that because our culture trains them to be subservient to the talking heads spouting propaganda on the nightly news. I've encountered some He-Can't-Win-bots in real life (one an irrational Romney supporter since 2008) and when I ask for an explanation as to why he can't win, there is no answer. Nobody can actually explain why he can't win, they just regurgitate the platitudes that they've been fed by the manufacturers of culture. When you get people to question the propaganda they'll either ignore you in favor of the comforts of complacency or they'll wake up to reality. I've gotten some people to change their minds. I wish I could do better but you can't win every battle.

Awesome

Our job is to keep our hearts clean & pure & spontaneous, full of faith. By living what we believe (like Ron Paul)and walking in forgiving, deep heart love you will make connection after connection after connection..

People are sick and tired of being sick and tired and are simply waiting for the twinkle in your eye....

Paul Can't Win?

According the latest national polls, Romney is NOT winning when pitted against Obama.

Maybe Paul can win when polled against Obama. We just don't know.

No Paul vs Obama polls are being taken.

That has to change. We need a poll. Lobby the pollsters. What if the real voters show that Paul can defeat Obama? There's our answer to the "Paul can't winners."

Calling - The Ron Paul Will Winners

It is time to tabulate our votes. I believe millions of us are ready to take an oath that Ron Paul has our vote.

We are ready to fearlessly put our votes out there for all to witness.

This is one time in history when a secret vote is a stolen vote.

We could all where pins which say "I already voted for Ron Paul". Our ranks would grow exponentially until the election would be over before November!

Win what?

Ron Paul has already won. He's won you. And me. And millions more than he had just four years ago. Yes we all would love to have him as president but today there are thousands that understand his message as well as he, see the implications of not heeding the message and given the podium, could as well if not better, convince even more. At the moment, we may only know one that has proven to be incorruptible but in this now huge following, there is assuredly more. Keep telling the message and winning hearts and minds. If not you, the one you convince could be our next leader.

Now it's about the Constitution and the fight to defend it.

Beautifully Spoken

Thanks Dave

When Romney gets the

When Romney gets the nomination, will you have the integrity to go back to that store and admit to the manager that you were incredibly, and laughably wrong?

Do you have integrity, that is the question. Or are you a little bitch. Little bitches never admit when they are wrong.

People always tell me things

People always tell me things like that. I plan on running for a local seat and my dad keeps telling me its a pipe dream. he says go waste 200k on a college indoctrination degree. Nothing changed with the addition of the degree, except now I believe the government because I learned how to be a student my whole life by going to public school.

Drain Your Swamp

It may take a while but under all the garbage you have been fed...past all the knee-jerk responses programed into your psyche...Deep within you..You will find pay dirt. You will find deep heart self-evident truths and a guidance system that will unleash your true gifts..
I'm excited for you

There's the GAMBLER...

Those who confuse voting with gambling. These are people who just love to pick "winners", and so they place their bet (i.e. vote) on the horse they believe will win. Yay, you did it - we're screwed another four years!

Then there's the STRATEGIST...

Like the gambler, they feel compelled to bet on one of the two "winners". But worse, because both candidates are disliked they rationalize on a vote for the "lesser of two evils". Personally, I find this logic wrong on several levels.

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

RON PAUL is Winning 2012

the really confusing part

Is that these people don't seem to get that it doesn't matter whether or not he can win the nomination. Who else are we going to vote for? If there is no real alternative, why do they care if we try?

Exactly

I don't care how many years down the road it is, I will still converse the issues that all of us here are so well aware of. Every eye opened, no matter if it is tomorrow or years from now, matters. The way I see it is if Ron has done this for decades, often by himself, in Congress then we can stand up for what we believe in as well. It's something worth fighting for. At least we can lay our heads down at night with the satisfaction of not compromising our unprecedented principles.

T minus two months and counting until Tampa!

It is who we really are

And worlds of truth are opening up within our hearts....self-evident truths and the chains are loosening and the deep heart source our forefathers relied upon is opening to each of us....

Are we beginning to see where Paul & Carol found their strength and direction?

Can you put ;your thread title in quotes?

like this "Ron Paul Cant win" so people may have a clue that this is satirical and not literal?

Otherwise... great POST!

Thank You

All suggestions welcome

Is that better?

I do want to break up this Ron Paul Can't Win psychosis and flush it to hell where it belongs.. so I don't want to take the edge off the title. (we'll see what happens)

I am acutely aware that his opposition has worked overtime from within and without to stop us - this is serious business with me

He has already Won....and no matter waht Ron Paul

for the rest of my life is my President...OK, so I am 73 and this is the first time in years that I can really, really say that I have finally got a US President whom I adore, respect, love, honor, and believe in. Oh, TRUST is a biggie with me and my wife. We trust our President Paul.

When November comes around Deleah and I will go to vote and we will, should we have to, write in on our Ballot, the Name: RON PAUL or howeever they have it listed on the ballot.

It is Ron Paul or no body at all.

God Bless President Ron Puul

thank You Sir

You are Ron Paul's vintage and I dearly appreciate you and your wife. I'm a bit younger (64.7).

It is time for us to step up to the plate.

And, Moses left around 120....and he is still being discussed.

Thanks for your comment too. The thing is that no matter what happens the name of Ron Paul will resonate way way into the future. President Paul is of the New Energy and the Old Energy dies really hard.
