Young Ron Paul Backers Stick With Their Candidate

As a 23-year-old member of the millennial generation, it’s fitting that Jacinda Kidd’s induction into politics came from YouTube.

It was there she happened upon a video of Ron Paul last January and that moved her beyond casual conversations with friends to dive headfirst into political activism.

“I was completely moved by it,” she said. “He’s never compromised, never went back on his word. I was immediately attracted to that. In this day and age it’s hard to find somebody who’s that sincere.”

Kidd, a Johnson County Community College student, donated to Paul’s presidential campaign, organized her school’s Youth for Ron Paul chapter and traveled across the country to promote his message.

Today, most of the political world has moved on from the insurgent, libertarian campaign that rallied around Paul while Romney ran away with the Republican primaries.

Kidd represents many of the young people inspired by Paul’s candidacy — and who refuse to let his outsider campaign wither into some historical footnote. To them, the cause personified by Paul wasn’t defeated in the primaries, it was launched.

Now she’ll join a handful of young people from the Kansas City area trekking to Tampa for the Republican National Convention and a Ron Paul rally.

Yes, Kucinich is sincere - he would print paper money and give them out to trade unions.
Our Blue Republicans are sincere - they came here for one year only and after Tampa will go back to Barack.

just 49 years young this past Friday....

Still optimistic for us all...still young at heart.....always childlike in many ways....more responsible than most adults and have a clearer conscience while being that way.....

Long live Dr. Ron Paul's brush fires of the minds and hearts and souls and human decency and honesty inside us all.....

That's Right....

25 yrs old and I ain't goin' no where.

...and feel exactly the same way as the posters above. From dralavant to me....that is almost 40 years separation in age...and we feel the same way. Explain that. The man is very special. He has brought together some people of all ages and backgrounds who would not have been brought together otherwise.

48 years young here :)

Other than a little grey in my beard...I'm still just like I was when I was 23. A little wiser, a few aches and pains from playing too hard on my motorcyle and waveruuners in my 30's but overall...I feel just like I did 25 years ago. I think refusing to go to the doctor unless I broke a bone or cut myself real bad may have helped. The only pharmies I ever used to take were ones that were given to me at parties in college...for recreational use only.

Never needed blood pressure meds, cholestrol meds, and have always thought the meds for "depression" were poison.

I have the weird problem of trying to get my 22 year old daughter to wake up and to read/listen/watch President Paul. She's still in college and although she never watches TV (which is just wonderful) she also has little interest in talking with me about RP or the direction this country is headed. But, she's THE BEST! I'll keep a spot held for her in my President Paul circle until she finally comes around.

Man I love hearing that mittens past might be finally catching up to him. If he does withdraw from the race...even though I'm a stong Atheist...I may just give ole skydaddy a big high five anyway!

Thanks for your comment

I like to say Dr. Ron Paul is one 'Romney Scandal' away from the GOP nomination.

As Ron Paul wanted it to be!

"Kidd represents many of the young people inspired by Paul’s candidacy — and who refuse to let his outsider campaign wither into some historical footnote. To them, the cause personified by Paul wasn’t defeated in the primaries, it was launched."

Dr. Paul gave birth to the LM

The Liberty Movement.

I love the photo at the top of the article.
Pic from yesterday of a Ron Paul booth at Kansas Union (University?).
To see this activism is truly heart warming.

Thanks for the bump.

It was a good photo.

I could not help noticing the seller had an eery similarity to the Cinema Joker. Not sure if it was a subliminal RP hit or what.

cinema joker has curly hair

That RP activist looks totally different.
LOL
How could you come up with such an idea...I'm rolling on the floor laughing.
