Comparison of Ron Paul and Mahatma... And the money issue.Submitted by RicheyG on Mon, 08/06/2012 - 00:34
Dear Ron Paul .. I have nothing but respect for you. I credit you for my awakening back in 2007. Thank you.
That being said ... This post is not directed at RP but at some of the people on this site.
I'm going to do a little comparison today.
This post stemmed from a thread I read earlier saying something to the tune of 'donate more money'...
Sidenote: I am also very f'ing tired of 'reading between the lines' ... Please stop already with that bs.
The comparison I'm doing today is between Ron Paul and Mohandas Gandhi.
What 'reading between the lines' did the Indians have to do? The message was quite clear .. Get out of our country.
Today we have to listen to Rand Paul endorse Romney and somehow 'read between the lines' to derive some other non sensical meaning. We have to listen to Ron Paul say 'I haven't decided if I'll endorse Romney' and somehow 'rbtl' again. Lol. Just imagine for a second Gandhi or his comrades talking about endorsing English politicians who saw nothing but slaves in India.
some of the people here .. If not cointel pro .. Are just plain dumb or delusional.
Anyway, Back to the comparison.
How much money has the campaign for liberty made??? Quite a lot.
I look at Ron Paul .. He looks sharp, wears a nice suit, has tons of money from his supporters, I hear he travels in a nice jet to arrive at his destination and he has the opportunity to appear on television repeatedly to spread the message.
Now look at Gandhi .. Doesn't look sharp, his clothes are homemade and look nothing like something a white man would respect, has no warfare tools, HE HAD NO MONEY, he did not own a home and I doubt there were many tv shows in which he could appear in back then to articulate his point.
Why is it that people on this site continuously think that donating money is going to win this revolution? NO!
Only our actions .. Civil disobedience, our work ethic, etc. will win this revolution. Not money.
If there is one gleaming difference I can see between Gandhi and Paul - it is that Gandhi challenged the system in a way which I haven't seen Paul do .. Yet. Gandhi called on his supporters to actually physically disobey the 'authority' .. Paul hasn't called on his supporters to do anything. He just spreads the message.
That being said .. we who understand the message should begin taking some action type steps similar to disobedience, the salt march, etc. if we really care about the revolution.
I'm not blaming RP at all... he has done more for the cause of liberty in USA than anyone here. If he doesn't want to call on his troops (us) to do something significant .. That's fine. But we should know and understand from our core that 'money' won't do a damn thing for us. Especially when the other side has the printing press.
But wait .. RP said to donate money to get more delegates into office. Well ... RP also endorsed his son who now swings off of Romney's scrotum. So how do we know any of these delegates won't turn?
My point is this ... The answer to our tyrannical government lies in our actions - not how much money we donate.
Thanks for reading and flame on.
