So proud of you, DELEGATES!Submitted by Dawnofanewera83 on Tue, 08/28/2012 - 22:22
Let me tell you what just happened: I went over to a friend's who is older & describes himself as a "die-hard liberal." He was watching MSNBC & coverage of the RNC was on when I came in. As we watched, there you were! A PLURALITY OF YOU, from at least 5 STATES OR MORE. Chanting for Ron Paul! There was Ron Paul, on the convention floor! Right on the MSM! I told him about Paulfest & his hour long speech to a crowd of 10,000 on Sunday in Tampa. That I thought the most important aspect of this presidential campaign was that RP was able to speak to colleges all over the country & energize the youth. He wondered why Dr. Paul was not given a speaking slot & why the GOP was shunning Michellle Bachmann, Sarah Palin & the Tea Party. I was able to explain to him about Romney & the establishment GOP attempting to wrestle power away from the grassroots & duly elected delegates because of Paul's support base. That every political party should be concerned about the deterioration of the process at the local level.
He even said himself how Ron Paul was one of the smarter members of Congress. He said that there was once a time where Democrats & Republicans worked across the aisle to get things done for the American people. We both lamented that it was no longer that way, parties are now too polarized, too win-at-all costs.
This civil conversation between a Conservative-minded Independent & a Liberal, all because of you & your hard work! They cannot un-hear what we say or pretend we no longer exist. We are the remnant & we are growing every day! There are millions of Ron Pauls out there & millions waiting to be woken up. I am exhilarated & ready to soldier on! Remember: first they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you...then...you...WIN! (Gandhi)
