My Pledge to Myself and to LibertySubmitted by kozmoedave on Tue, 08/28/2012 - 20:53
The other day I wrote a reply email to a fellow Michigan state delegate who was checking up on me to see how I was doing. I fear I was too negative. Basically, I said that I would continue to fight for Ron Paul and for liberty, but that I was just about ready to throw my hands up and walk away from the republican party.
I'm not going to walk away.
I'm going to fight.
I hereby pledge to do everything in my power to oppose all forms of evil anywhere and everywhere, at all times. Among countless others, this means YOU, republican party.
When I went to my county convention, I was the youngest person there (and my 32nd birthday was yesterday). I think I've only even seen one person within ten years of my age at any republican meeting in my county. To the establishment: you are already dying off. I, and people just like me, are the future. And we're not buying your lies.
I and every other Ron Paul supporter watched your trickery, deceit, cheating, stealing, and fraud take place right in front of our faces. If anyone was doubtful of the despicable lengths to which you would go to prevent the only honest candidate in your party with a snowball's chance of winning the presidency from gaining the nomination in your party, they're certainly convinced now. You are ruined. And I am going to ruin you. Because I'm not going anywhere.
You want me to run away, to take my ball and go home. Well, it ain't gonna happen. Thank you for one thing, GOP: you have resolved me to a never-ending battle for Liberty.
You're forgetting something else very important here, too, establishment. Your kind are just so used to kicking the can down the road to the next election that I think you've completely overlooked it.
I have two young children.
If it has even crossed your mind that people like my wife and I are going to let them buy into your propaganda and garbage, boy are you delusional.
This r3VOLution is FAR from over. You're thinking Ron Paul is finished because he lost your nomination, he's retiring from Congress, and he's no spring chicken. You're wrong. And even if we never heard another word from the good doctor, you seem to be forgetting that, not only is he a best-selling author whose books are still in print, but there are these really cool "websites" on the "internet" where we can communicate and organize with fellow liberty-lovers, as well as direct people to video, articles, books, on and on. And boy, do we have a wealth of Ron Paul history to show the young'uns.
You're finished, establishment. Done. Because I will not rest even when your pathetic one-party system is demolished. I will fight for liberty until I can fight no more. I'm staying in your party. I'm going to educate people and open their eyes to the things you don't want them to see. Then I'm going to recruit them, and we're going to change you from the inside out.
Tu Ne Cede Malis.
