A man rolls down his window at a stoplight yesterday right next to me, and smiles...so I roll down my window in response. He gestures at my Ron Paul bumper sticker and says, "He would have been a good one, but you need to change." I responded with, "No thanks...I'll stick with my liberty!" He just waved and drove on as the light had changed.

Proof that many people still don't understand how the system works...that there are more than 2 choices. I'm reminded of a scene in the movie, "The Princess Bride" in which a bad guy tells our hero, "Only a fool would accept what is given him."

I'm the bible thumper of liberty

I try to spread the word of liberty any chance I get. I do it often.

most of the people I have talked to about politics in the . . .

past, beyond here on DP, no longer have anything to say. They do keep the game going, though--

but with little enthusiasm. Nobody I knew IRL was for Paul--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

My thoughts haven't changed

I'm beyond feeling vengeful over the treatment they gave Ron Paul and his supporters.

I believe we need to foster collapse -- keep the Lil' Caesar in office to help destroy the Republicans and ultimately both corrupt parties.

These edifices are not amenable to "morphing" into pro American organizations.

They are predators and as such they both need to be exterminated like cockroaches.

Vote for Liberty if you have any principles.

Update: Prepare for collapse.
Exercise independence even when it feels silly.
The day will come when you'll be glad you did.

I like

The way you think BT. The collapse is inevitable. Let's get it overwith before they are able to control it.

Good one

Yesterday a couple from Oregon saw my bumper stickers and said "Ron Paul, we loved him". I said "We had our opportunity and now we get to pay for our ignorance because another Ron Pail isn't coming around anytime soon"

Wifey said someone will appear, and were hoping it was Christie but it looks bad for him now. When I told them I'm a purist and won't be voting for anyone like that they laughed, and said "you'll never see a pure candidate win, you have to compromise at some point" I guess it was a mean thing to say because they didn't like it when I said "How has that compromising been working out for us?"

"It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere".

Voting for the lesser of two

Voting for the lesser of two evils is still voting for evil.

Damn...Christie? Really?

... I want my LIBERTY back you son of a b1tch!

I use Blue Wave, but don't expect one of THEIR silly taglines.

but you need to change

That seems like a contradiction to me.

Change what? My belief system because the candidate I wanted (who represented the truth) was maligned and marginalized?

So now I acquiesce to TPTB? Ew, that's gives me the heebie-jeebies.

Great movie btw - sound track is very good too.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.

He also wrote Marathon Man...which was really good.

Which Lie Did I Tell-William Goldman

I love "The Princess Bride"! The screen writer, William Goldman , also wrote a great auto biography called "Which Lie Did I Tell" I apologize if the heading is misleading. I do, however, think this book is a great read for other fans. He also wrote " Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid"!

Aaron Russo, Nikola Tesla, Ron Paul, I'm jus' sayin'

I'm with you BT

We need to break the system. I will vote for liberty ;but it will be fixed to already be chosen by those in control. Resistance is important and the GOP deserves punishment.

Ha!

One of my favorites too.
Inconceivable that I had not made the association of that scene with the illusion of choice concerning politics:)

My Dinner with Andre... The Giant!

Good Stuff!

Everytime I attend a function that requires me to wear one of those labels on my lapel that says: "My Name Is" I write... Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die" And I tell ya, I meet more people and it is a GREAT networking tool! People get a big kick outta that!

Whoda thunk!
