Who would have thought Ron Paul would get me OUT of a ticket?Submitted by Zachariah on Mon, 06/25/2012 - 12:56
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.
