Who would have thought Ron Paul would get me OUT of a ticket?

I got pulled over this morning for going 52 in a 40. I have a Ron Paul magnet on the back of my car and the first thing the cop says as he walks up to my window is, “So do you think Ron Paul has a chance?”

I replied that it isn’t looking good since Ron Paul has said he thinks Romney will have enough delegates in the first round, yet I think it is still up to the delegates at the convention. The cop replied by saying that he agrees with Ron Paul more than anyone, and begins to rant about the Federal Reserve and how ridiculous it is that people don’t see it for the scam that it is, his words were, “It’s a private bank. Period.” As cars are speeding by this cop is somewhat animated in his speech going on about how the only way to maybe weather the economic condition would be to begin drastic cuts to the budget, to get rid of many worthless departments. He lists the DEA, ATF, CIA; all worthless he says. “What in the Constitution gives the government the right to make drugs illegal?” We go back and forth for a few minutes until he wraps it up by holding out his hand and saying, “It’s a warning. Have a good day.” I shook his hand and drove off.

If anybody thinks that the Ron Paul campaign has fallen short in any way, you are greatly mistaken. I meet people like this police officer constantly. People are becoming informed and people are rejecting lies. I saw a billboard with “The Gold Standard” written across it in large letters, and what it was advertising had nothing to do with politics or economics. The Gold Standard is now mainstream, and it is seen as a very positive thing. And this is not an isolated incident either. I see the Liberty movement’s influence everywhere I go. For a year now I’ve been saying, “If Ron Paul does nothing else, he will already have done more than enough.” And yet he keeps performing, he keeps fighting, and he keeps winning. Maybe he doesn’t get confetti or balloons dropped on him, but he is winning the hearts and minds of the people. That type of winning is what changes the world.

Keep fighting the good fight, friends. You’re making more of a difference than you know.

Heard a similar story at the

Heard a similar story at the Texas state convention. A fellow delegate told me he was stopped at one of the border checkpoints, about 30 miles or so inside the border. The back of his truck was plastered with Ron Paul stickers, and he noticed the border patrol agent studying them intently as he walked around the back of the truck to get to the driver's side window. When the agent got to the window, he asked the delegate, "So you're a Ron Paul supporter?". The delegate responded with, "Yes sir, you're damned right I am!" To which the agent smiled and said, "Have a good day sir!", and waved him through.

Where in the Constitution does it say speeding is illegal?

Or give government authority to make it illegal? Guy sounds like a hypocrite

"The true patriot is motivated by a sense of responsibility and out of self interest for himself, his family, and the future of his country to resist government abuse of power. He rejects the notion that patriotism means obedience to the state."RP


That is an incredibly silly statement.

me too!

i didnt post (although i should have and wanted to.)

about a month or so ago i was in manhattan and made an illegal turn (didnt know, damn city has crazy rules.) got pulled and the cop was like u made an illegal turn license and reg. so im fuckin pissed off to high hell. he comes back and is like "hey, ill make you a deal. If you have another ron paul sticker on you ill let you off the ticket."

i was like OMG BRO YOU ARE SO AWESOME! i proceeded to tell him its not even about the ticket or the money, just the fact that an officer in the city can look past all the bs and know whats really going on out there is really inspiring, and i hope you speak with other officers about this too.

now me being a loser of course i had two rolls of stickers in my car which i post up sometimes, so i gave him a sheet and was on my way.

i would have given him the magnet i have on the back but i didnt want to go a single second wout it on my car =)

matter of fact sometimes when i take rides from other ppl i put my mganet on their car and go

long story short i was sooooooo proud it really made my week

A inspiring story

Thanks for sharing. Stuff like this helps to give us faith in people and the fact that the revolution is growing.

Politics, freedom, truth, Ron Paul.Feel free to check out my blog on politics in my profile.

That is good news

Once you understand liberty, you cannot go back to the so called "two party system" that most people are still fooled by.

The Federal Reserve

is a private bank but I hope you made sure that he understood that it essentially wouldn't exist without the government, and that it is a government chartered bank - given advantages that cripples any competitor like legal tender laws and the like. I am happy when people realize how destructive it is, but get nervous when they blame it on the fact that our central bank is "private." As if they are saying that if there was just more government regulation it would be soo much better.

No one can find a safe way out if society is sweeping towards destruction. Everyone,in his own interests, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle. None can stand aside with unconcern; the interests of everyone hang on the result. - LvM

It does not matter

We are all going to have to realize the reality of the federal reserve soon. Our money is going down so fast, it is going to be too late by the time people wake up.

And, of course, these idiots that are our fellow Americans will think they need more government.

I hope I'm wrong.

Great post

We hear so much bad news about abusive cops in these forums it's great to hear about a cop who wants his government to uphold the constitution.

BREAKING NEWS for Lawyers for Ron Paul


Ian Snow Carpenter


Does my heart good!

And hopefully MY Ron Paul magnet will help me someday if I ever need it.

Mine is staying on forever anyway.

When you have a Ron Paul sign on your vehicle it says a whole lot more than just support for one man.

It shows support for an entire principled philosophy.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

Also don't forget to mention...

Romney is funded by more banking institutions than Obama.

I got a job........

because the HR lady liked Ron Paul

I had a similar incident

I had a similar incident where I was standing at a window getting a money order. The lady next to me was going on about the bank trying to steal her house. Then she says, "we must get behind Romney to beat Obama." I replied that Romney was just an all white Obama and that I was voting for Ron Paul no matter what. Then she says, "I would vote for him too if he was on the ballot." I told her, if he wasn't I would not vote at all. To which she relied, "well, he is gathering a lot of delegates." So the word is out there. People are aware of Paul and are keeping their eyes open for the opportunity to vote for him. I pray we are pleasantly surprised at the convention. If Paul were nominated Obama would be crushed in the election.

Great story Zach. Another

Great story Zach. Another good site for Liberty stickers and great quotations is www.libertystickers.com Lots of 2nd Amendment, Tom Jefferson quotes, other FF, etc.

*Wisconsin Constitution* Article I, Section 25 "The people have the right to keep and bear arms for security,defense,hunting,recreation or any other law-abiding purpose"

I wonder.

If the MSM weren't bought and paid for, would we even need a President Paul? If the MSM were really honest about what was going on in the world, much of their crony systems would collapse on their own.

You might be right

There would have to be no FCC and copyright laws for us to hear honest news from more competing sources. I'll try and find a link for where I read this, but there was a guy in Hawaii who had a libertarian radio show and it got shutdown by the FCC. And of course Ron Paul's 2008 YT channel got shut down for 'copyright complaint.'

I wonder if cops are the biggest readers

of bumper stickers.

It certainly makes vehicle ID easier on a local level. And it is interesting that law enforcement fundraisers often include the benefit of a sticker to "show that you support your local law enforcement."

Thanks for telling a positive story about cops and stickers!

Awesome story

Tricks and treachery are the practice of fools, that don't have brains enough to be honest. - Ben Franklin

that's just a mere testament

to the fact that Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul and ALL of us have accomplished more than just win elections (which in the aggregate are mere temporary markers of political winds, puppetry and bankster agenda), but we've accomplished something far more significant: we changed minds, which is ETERNAL!

and, no amount of money FRN's or propaganda is gonna work against a critical mass of awakened humanity.
