Ron Paul Revolution Needs To Reunite

Divisive controversies should be swept aside for momentum to continue.

The last two weeks have thrown up a number of divisive controversies that have been exploited by the establishment to slow the momentum of the Ron Paul Revolution. Now is the time to sweep these issues aside and concentrate on reinvigorating the movement to restore peace, liberty and prosperity in our time.

Perhaps the biggest issue is the establishment media's smear tactic in attempting to dismiss the Congressman as a racist for sentiments expressed in articles written by other people 20 years ago. For long-standing Paul supporters, the fact that the media would play this card came as no surprise, but for others, the faux controversy served to dampen some of their enthusiasm for the campaign.

First of all, as we have documented and as the President of the NAACP in Austin and a man who has known Ron Paul 20 years has testified to, the claims are lurid, slapdash, out of context and purely designed as political fodder to derail a movement that threatens the establishment and the very racist policies in everyday society that it upholds. Ron Paul is not a racist, has never been a racist, and anyone that has engaged in even a cursory study of his public statements and articles can see that this is self-evident.

Secondly, Ron Paul supporters who saw this as an excuse to withdraw themselves from helping the campaign need to grow a thicker skin.

This is an election season and all manner of personal smears are going to be flying around. The establishment is terrified that 10 per cent of the politically active population have committed themselves to saving America and they will tell all manner of lies in an attempt to drives wedges between Ron Paul supporters.

Expect it, deal with it, fight it, and move on. Don't become disheartened because the momentum is still with us and we should only redouble our efforts every time another attack is launched on the good name of the Congressman.

Another divisive wedge that the establishment have tried to exploit, notably in a Fox News debate question last week, is the issue of the 9/11 truth movement and its link to Ron Paul.

Many 9/11 truthers are upset that the Congressman has not fully embraced their views and see his public distancing from them as a kind of rejection.

Whatever Ron Paul's views on 9/11, and he has publicly supported a new investigation in the past, truthers need to be more savvy in accepting the fact that the Congressman has now entered the belly of the beast and will have to play politics to a certain degree simply to fend off the establishment's relentless attack pattern.

That is not to say that Paul should compromise his values in the interests of appeasing the status quo and so far he has performed admirably in sticking to his positions and stubbornly reinforcing them in the face of constant backlash from every one of the other establishment candidate dupes.

Whatever truthers think about Ron Paul's rhetoric on this issue, all they really need to do is ask themselves one question. If, as the evidence clearly indicates, the government had a hand in 9/11, do you really think that a government led by Ron Paul would do the same thing again? Clearly not, which is why truthers need to get past their gripe and throw their considerable skills of impromptu educational activism behind the Congressman's mission to restore America.

You cannot please all of the people all of the time. Ron Paul's supporters are never going to agree with him on every single issue but this should by no means provide them with an excuse to become despondent and give up the fight.

The third and most recent controversy to divide Ron Paul supporters is the fact that the Congressman has declined to follow up on efforts to get a recount in New Hampshire following numerous indications of vote fraud.

Ron Paul made a statement on Friday in which he made it clear that he thought vote fraud was not beyond those in the establishment who wish to mothball his campaign.

However, he followed this up yesterday by indicating he would not be pursuing a recount in New Hampshire, preferring instead to focus on the upcoming primary in Michigan.

"After a careful investigation, I have decided against seeking a recount in New Hampshire. I am confident that not asking for a recount is the right decision," read the statement.

"I carefully considered the arguments for and against a recount before instructing my campaign staff not to pursue it. With out a firm belief that vote fraud had taken place, and without the possibility that a recount would have increased the chances for success of our campaign, a recount would have diverted campaign resources, time, and energy away from crucial battles elsewhere."

Though we can readily see why the Congressman's campaign prefers to focus on the battles ahead, the reasons for taking another look at New Hampshire are legion and that is why we support the efforts of Democrat Dennis Kucinich and Republican candidate Albert Howard in mandating a recount on both sides.

I will repeat again, Ron Paul supporters who saw this as an excuse to withdraw themselves from helping the campaign need to grow a thicker skin.

This is an election season and all manner of personal smears are going to be flying around. The establishment is terrified that 10 per cent of the politically active population have committed themselves to saving America and they will tell all manner of lies in an attempt to drives wedges between Ron Paul supporters.

Expect it, deal with it, fight it, and move on. Don't become disheartened because the momentum is still with us and we should only redouble our efforts every time another attack is launched on the good name of the Congressman.

You would be much better off turning the dang TV and radio off,
work with your meetup out waving signs, talking to folks about Ron Paul and handing them literature, hammering signs in the ground around your area, and pointing them to his congressional website, straight talk, and the index of his archived articles. Become a Precinct Leader and go out in the neighborhoods and canvas.
I'm amazed how positive this is. People are hungry for our messanger. So many here in Arkansas are undecided I'm amazed.
I just talked to the head football coach, Coach Clay, at our high school and he is a big fan. Same with the guy over the Agricultural Dept. I walked by a classroom and heard the teacher say "neocon"
and later I asked him who he was voting for and he said "Ron Paul".

There is NO excuse for not working with your meetup. Everyone in the meetups are different except we all support Ron Paul for various reasons.

Leave Headquarters alone. Do you understand what they are going though. They are working their tails off and they do not need any more stress or bother.

Herding libertarians is like herding cats.

That's how it is in Vancouver, WA, also. Tons and tons of undecideds. Remember, the *norm* is for a very small percentage to even vote in primaries at all!! We just have to reach the next "layer" beyond the usual voters, a much larger percentage who do have some political concerns but who don't normally follow primaries. Let them know there's a great man running who needs their help, and that their vote could make a huge difference this time! Give them a DVD. Ask them about their concerns and let them talk to you.

The harvest is plentiful.
