Look How Far We've ComeSubmitted by DYoung on Fri, 10/05/2012 - 07:35
For the past several weeks, I've been following all of the arguments on here about who we should vote for in the election. After a while, I began to feel absolutely dizzy with all of the arguments being thrown back and forth. Then I thought, "Wow it's all gone down the drain in these past few weeks!" (Actually, my thoughts were not that nice, but I will keep it clean.)
However, I realized something today. NOTHING has been lost! Here we are after all that has happened, and we are still fighting. We are debating. We are still determined to set this country right. We could have crawled off into the shadows and sulked because we didn't get our way, but we didn't. We may be arguing, but at least we can't be accused of being apathetic. We certainly aren't blindly following anyone's lead. If we don't always get along, that's fine. Just remember that simply going along to get along is part of what got our nation in the mess to begin with.
We owe a lot to Dr. Paul for waking us up. At first, we looked to him to point us in the right direction, and he did. Thankfully, most of us did not stop there. We began to study so that we could develop our own informed opinions about the issues. We began to find our own way. Yes, Ron Paul started this movement, but it is ours now. In the end, I guess it always was.
