"Obi-Wan Kenobi" of LibertySubmitted by Asclepius on Wed, 08/29/2012 - 18:40
The inspiration was dampened briefly yesterday with all the news of the RNC rule changes and the public humiliations of the Paul delegates. But, my inspiration was instantly restored when I saw the ever optimistic Ron Paul interview with Neal Calvito late in the afternoon.
At first, I was stunned at his absence of anger at what had just happened, but then I had an epiphany when with a smile Dr. Paul said to Neal something to the effect of “all those attacks by the GOP produce tremendous incentive to get involved" which reminded me of the victory speech he gave very early in the Race (maybe in Iowa) when he came in third. His excitement and optimism didn’t seem possible, especially after considering how publically angry Rand Paul was after that vote.
But it all came together yesterday when I was reminded of that scene from the first Star Wars film when Obi-Wan Kenobi fights Darth Vader in front of the young Luke Sky Walker. Remember what Obi-Wan said with resolve just before letting his guard down, "You cannot win Darth. If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine!"
