"Ron Paul Can't Win"Submitted by Rick Mann on Sat, 06/23/2012 - 16:26
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
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.
