An Urgent Appeal To Our Veterans

UPDATE: Now that Adam is no longer involved, those of you who said "no way", get motivated, join in, and do it in grand style!!! DO IT FOR RON PAUL!

No one knows better than a veteran the horror of war. I suspect that is high up there on the list of why so many veterans support Ron Paul in his presidential bid. Legally declared wars are bad enough and the undeclared wars seem to be an immoral means of profit at a terrible cost.

I sometimes wonder how many of our veterans who returned from any of the overseas wars of the 20th and 21st centuries are able to sleep peacefully each night, without having nightmares about what they had seen or experienced. How many are still recovering from injuries to the mind, as well as to the body? How long must we police the world and why?

This message is something everyone can understand but, no one better than a veteran: http://youtu.be/PFCekeoSTwg

Dr. Paul is the one who would put some sanity back into the use of our military, not to mention putting an end to the deep cuts in services the VA has only just begun to make!

You are well aware that Adam Kokesh has organized the Veterans March on the RNC in Tampa. I understand why some of Dr. Paul’s supporters are turned off by that. But, let me ask our veterans a question: Did you always like the people in charge of you and your actions when you served? What you should remember is that Adam DOES stand with Ron Paul. This entire Veterans March on the RNC is ALL ABOUT Ron Paul and nobody else! It is not about Adam. It’s about sending a VERY BIG message to the delegates, the press, the people, and to the whole world that Ron Paul IS the choice of the troops! Adam agrees with Dr. Paul and his message and he believes this March is necessary to carry the message of Liberty forward: http://youtu.be/FtwbwXw0_Rs

This may well be your last chance to give personal tribute to Dr. Ron Paul and to salute him in front of the whole world. But, on the other hand, just by your being there and joining the March and saluting Dr. Paul, YOU COULD MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD. Think about that…. Really think about that and then make plans to get to Tampa, PLEASE!

I am no Dr Paul but sure...'s picture

Hi, I wanted to aknowledge

Hi, I wanted to aknowledge an earlier thread of yours for some perspective.

http://www.dailypaul.com/232369/an-old-veteran-with-red-pape...

Good Story, Thanks.

Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected, once it's realized that our Liberties and Wealth are in Jeopardy. -Ron Paul

Thank You for Reposting

...that thread "I am no Dr Paul." It puts a whole new dimension on veterans...what they give and, often, what is taken away from them.

Bring them home! Bring them home Romney. Bring the home O'Bama. Bring them home Soros. Bring them home Koch Brothers. Bring them home Democrats. Bring them home Republicans. Bring them home Rockefellers. Bring them home Rothchilds. Bring them home Congress.

That falls on deaf ears.,,,but this:

Bring them home, Father in Heaven. We will do our part, not languish in apathy and dispair. Bring them home.

fonta

Thank You Nonna

Yes, this truly is a "clarion call"....
"To arms, to arms" was once the call...that was then....this is now.
Our military "gets it"....we all need to be there to support this march....and one thing about military:
Chain of Command:
Always continues, no matter the conditions, casualties, in essence:
"CARRY ON"....
Whether Adam is leading or not, someone will fill the spot.
Someone else will:
........CARRY ON...................Let's just get there, everything will fall into place.
Your video was great, inspirational...and it got me looking in my favorites, where I found this one:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VK6rZ--DhZM&playnext=1&list=P...
John McDermott: "And the Band Played Waltzing Mathilda".
I felt compelled to share it.
I feel compelled to go to Tampa...and will be there.
Thank You.

The images in the first two

videos I watched in your link were great! (Had to cut off at "Danny Boy", though. Some things my Italian taste buds just can't tolerate. LOL)

Oddly enough, while watching your link of "The Band Played Waltzing Matilda" and "The Green Fields of France", in my head I kept hearing Liam Clancy singing along: http://youtu.be/WM_UYzUtu0w. Bob Dylan called Liam Clancy the best ballad singer of the day, and I tend to agree. Love listening to Liam Clancy and Tommy Makem.

I know you will be in Tampa. Try to find where our veterans are and stay with them. I have a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach that dirty tricks will be used against Ron Paul supporters. We need our veterans and active duty people there for more reasons than one. Keep yourself safe, Danton!

Yes, as the British say, "Keep calm and carry on."

The other WWII inspirational posters fit as well - the three which were intended to keep up morale in the event of attack or occupation.

And yes, thanks Nonna, for the video. For some reason I skipped over it when I initially read this post.

Ron Paul IS the choice of the troops!

Our military take their oaths to the Constitution seriously. So should presidents. I hope our veterans will be in Tampa in force.

Veterans for Dr. Ron Paul

"I, __________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oath_of_enlistment

There is no duration defined in the Oath

Veterans and Oath Keepers, We NEED You

Personalities aside. Vendettas aside. Personal opinions aside. We NEED you now.

I know in my heart you will, personally, exercise what may be the last time you can with free speech be heard and televised. People all over the world have protested (without media coverage) saying we will defend our countries but we will not fight your crony wars.

To the Powers That Be: How dare you have so little respect for our lives, our morals, our integrity and that of our fathers and brothers who have died or been irrevocably damaged in wars past. How dare you plan for our children and grandchildren to be sacrificed like some evil video game that you promote and propagandize as having anything to do with courage and honor.

We do have honor and the courage to show up and face the beast in a peaceful and honorable manner in Tampa. Are we for Ron Paul? Yes, because he is the only one who stood up and said...BRING THEM HOME.

Another generation cannot live with the nightmares we have endured...the things we had to do because we "had orders."

This is not just about Ron Paul. And, it certainly is not about Adam. He will find his way again and when he does he will most likely lead protests against using our young men and women to kill for the global chess game.

But right now VETS...just do it. You do not take orders from anyone other than your own conscience and sense of justice. This is not about making ultimatums to a man whose campaign might have been run differently. It is about standing with a man who was and is the only one standing with you.

Do it for our children...do it for our grandchildren. Do it for yourselves. March in Tampa and turn your backs in the direction of the RNC...with heart and soul and dignity. Peacefully. This march will be televised. It may be the only one televised for a long time to come.

Don't miss the opportunity. Within each of you is THE ONE. The leader. Combined...all together...you have a very powerful voice.

fonta

Yes Fonta: Bring Them Home

It's not about Adam
It's not about the Campaign;
Or Rand
Or Benton
Or Paul-Fest
It's about one thing, one idea:

..............BRING THEM HOME.......................................

Thank You, God Bless.

Wow, fonta! Maybe YOU should have

written this thread instead of me. You go, girl!

I'm so happy to have more women chime in on this subject. We need everyone's support on this. Thank you so much for your moving comment!

Veterans and supporters can use this as a guide for where they can line the streets on whatever day, including the 26th.

Thanks to Britons4Paul.

Please go to Tampa.

We need each others backs.

Show Our VETS We Need Them

...to stand up for us in Tampa. Bump this.

fonta

I will be among close friends who are veterans down in Tampa :-)

Bump for Nonna and our Vets!

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Are Any More Vets OnLine???

Are you going to go for it???

fonta

For me, too?

Thanks, ProudAmericanFirst!

Glad you will be there with our veterans. Our movement needs to show itself and its size in Tampa.

hand out oathkeepers.org card to your local law enforcemnent

put some at the police department. Hand them out to every military personnel you see. They need to know...

Excellent idea!

It could help and it is worth a try! Maybe you could post a link to the oath so people can either order cards or print out a bunch.

Thanks for the great idea, silverngold!

Bumper

!

BUMP THIS!

Can't let a valiant effort fade away...let's go down swingin'!

The way Mittens keeps screwing up, his spokeswoman Andrea Saul handed us the nomination if we can keep the heat on...this is just one way.

Adam: If possible, post a parade route for those who cannot, for whatever reason, do an 8-mile hike..many will join along the way, and that will be huge.
But since Secret Service, and TPTB have been setting up checkpoints since March 27th we will understand if this isn't possible.

Thank you Nonna for expressing concern for all involved, all who dare, all who hope and pray...see y'all on the way to the Convention Center...GO RON PAUL!

Where's info. about the daily route?

I'd like to march with them although not in the service, but can't find the route.

I asked Zak

in another thread but, haven't heard back from him yet. Hopefully that info will be made available. All I know is that they will leave from PaulFest.

Hi Danton!

You're still up at this hour, too? I thought I was the night bird here. I'm even more surprised that you approve of this. I've read some of the comments you've made elsewhere about PaulFest and didn't think you'd be interested in this Veterans event.

So very happy to have your support, my friend! I just wish others would see that this isn't about Adam or PaulFest and it could be very useful for us in Tampa.

It's About Time That I

..Took my own advice and owned up to the concept that:
"There's a reason God put erasers on pencils"...

I also had a couple of comments that I erred on with others, so I had to eat some crow and make amends....it's not a big deal, but it helps me to realize my own mistakes and practice humility.

You read my mind...I was thinking the same thing about the late hour night-bird/night-owl regarding you too! LOL!

I think it's the anticipation of the travel to Tampa and I keep getting calls about it...encouragement and friends who await me.
...and this Veterans March has got me fired up...the tide truly is turning and as one of us mentioned, you or Fonta?, something is "in the wind" ...and it's gonna happen...I can feel it!

That's why I must support and attend this...not PaulFest...the MARCH and the Sunday-Sun-DOME Event.....gotta get some shut-eye, some sweet dreams of a Ron Paul Tampa Triumph!...see ya at morning coffee!

Glad to hear that. BTW...

I watched Thunderheart on TV last night and thought of you.

Thanks for leaving a comment.

An Appeal To Our Veterans

Ah! The annual Thunderheart viewing. I watched it myself recently. Some things never get old. I can't tell you how many times different lines come to me related to one issue or another. ("This land is not for sale" reminds me of those Maine delegates refusing to make a deal to have what is rightfully theirs to begin with.) That movie is in my blood! BTW, thank you for the time you invested in that dialogue the other day. I'd felt obligated to come to the defense of a Marine (there happens to be a Marine reservist close to my heart)... and found that you had come to my defense. Thnx for your kind words. And, my, but aren't you intuitive. No, I'm nowhere near you, but in college I did take Physics I & II (one of not too many girls way back then!). When it comes right down it - I mean way-way down - so much relates to physics. I sometimes regret not having majored in it. (What nerds like me do for fun: http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/physics/8-01-physics-i-classical-...) But just so you know, I actually do leave my brains outside the church doors - fortunately they're still attached to the rest of me! LOL And btw, I also saw what you wrote re a possibly departing DP'er. Hope you're not going anywhere, but should you ever, please do contact me! Aint no word in Sioux for goodbye. :)

Unless and until the mods fix the contact tab,

I will not be able to contact you, mdefarge. Just know that if I cannot, it won't be because of lack of appreciation for you, my friend.
