I Was A Teenage Ron Paul

The transformation happened slowly at first.

At first there were only hints. Feelings. Then, slowly, it was a knowing. I was different, all right: something had definitely changed. I had changed.

I was becoming a Ron Paul.

...

It came on without warning and in waves:

I knew the Federal Reserve was a private banking club.

I knew that foreign intervention had repercussions.

I knew that a welfare state could only eat itself.

I knew things I never thought I would know - where I learned them I couldn't tell you, but they were there, not just ideas but knowledge, knowledge that couldn't be replaced or erased.

I had become something else, something different.

I had become... Ron Paul!

...

Oh, the blessings. Oh, the curses of time.

As a mortal I am unable to know my own mortality. As a product of the timeless ideas of freedom and liberty I still know not my own timelessness...

As a student I forget I am still a teacher... as a teacher I forget that I am yet still a student...

The heavens be praised, I shout out loud: I AM RON PAUL!!!

Can we get Ron Paul masks

Can we get Ron Paul masks like the Guy Fawkes masks?

Cool.

But a little spooky...

Next you'll be asked to sell yourself out.

And the majority of the people you meet along the road won't even know what "selling out" means. Just remember; we do, and you did.
