Lack of independent thoughtSubmitted by jeffersonfranklin on Wed, 08/29/2012 - 04:37
I find we criticise those who blindly follow the establishment as drones, and this is a good critique.
But what I am concerned about is we seem to have a good number of our supporters doing the same. This should be a movement of independent thought. But I'm hearing a lot of folks saying, 'I'm waiting for my orders from Dr. Paul about what to do next', or 'I'll only vote for a candidate Dr. Paul endorses'. Aren't we capable of better than this. Why does Dr. Paul have to hold our hand? I love Dr. Paul, but he is not God.
I'm also surprised by folks who say join the Republican Party even though they broke bones of our supporters and disenfranchised a number of our legally elected delegates. This party is corrupt and cancerous to the core, like the Democrats. I hear that it is an empty vessel that we can use. No, it has a lot of baggage. The only way this movement works is if we get tons of disgrunted democrats and republicans to join. Don't expect a lot of dems to join a party brand they equate to Bush.
Now you can vote me down, but we need to have a discussion about the future of our great movement.
