The Legacy of Dr. Ron PaulSubmitted by jglisson on Wed, 10/17/2012 - 03:46
We had a chance this election cycle that we may never have again. We had a chance to elect an honest president. A living paradox. A man with character, who takes his oath to uphold the constitution seriously. A man who can be trusted to do exactly what he says. Truly a pearl among swine. If any man deserved to win the GOP's nomination, it was him. A statesman among politicians, he is a man who understands economics; he predicted the recession and the collapse of the housing market. He has fought relentlessly to protect the liberty that the founding fathers entrusted to us. His actions always match his words, and his words haven't changed for the entire 30 year span of his career. He understands the proper role of government in the economic and social realms. He understands that giving up liberty under the false pretense of "safety" never works, and is just an excuse to broaden the scope of government control of our lives. He understands that legislating morality does not automatically create a moral society. He is the only candidate with a sensible foreign policy, who understands that it is not our position to be the policemen of the world. He is the only candidate who realizes that you do not spread freedom through force, but by example. He is the only candidate willing to admit that the war against drugs has been a miserable failure. He is also the only candidate willing to discuss REAL spending cuts that this country needs in order to actually balance the budget. He is the only candidate who not only supports our 2nd amendment rights, but understands WHY they were put in place. He could very well be the last great statesman of our lives.
His name is Ron Paul, and his legacy has created a movement to restore liberty in America. Ron Paul has sparked a fire among the grassroots that will not stop until it storms across Washington, D.C. The war for liberty is not over, and the dream of our founding fathers is not dead! Liberty is very much alive, and as long as I have breath in my lungs, there will still be a voice for freedom. The time for liberty has come, and as Ron Paul put it, "An idea whose time has come cannot be stopped by any army or any government."
After the election is over, when the country goes back to sleep, I will be very much awake. I will be working actively to spread the message of freedom and liberty to every person that I encounter. I will be a part of those calling up a force to rise up and take this country back. I will be patiently waiting for every opportunity to win victories for liberty. If there is anything I learned this election cycle, it is that the liberty movement must continue. The future of this nation depends on us. We must not fall asleep again when the election is over. We must be wary, and ready at a moments notice to fight the battle to win hearts and minds. We must carry the torch that Ron Paul passes on, and we must not let him down. We will start locally and slowly take over the entire political structure of the country, if we must. One thing is for sure. We are not a mistake; we are here to stay, and we WILL be victorious.
"Let it not be said that we did nothing" - Ron Paul
