I am so happy to continue to stand with Ron Paul's principles & values long past this rigged election.

The single, most coveted thing in this world by Romney right now, is an endorsement from Ron Paul. I am loving the fact that Romney will NEVER see that endorsement.

I am happy with Ron Paul not endorsing any candidate for President this year. Ron Paul endorsed 'We the People' by recommending that we all just 'Vote our Conscience'.

I stand happy to know that his stances, principles, values, & ideas will go on long after this rigged election. To think that 5,000 people showed up on a work day in SLC, Utah at 1:30pm is simply amazing.

If Romney, Gingrich, & Santorum were the drop outs, and Ron Paul was the nominee, I can pretty much guarantee that you could combine all three of those knuckleheads for a "Rally", and not get 5,000 people to show up for them. What speech do any of them have to inspire a crowd? What principles & ideas do people so long for out of them?
"I KNOW what it takes."??? Think that speech would go over well after a Romney drop out? After Romney gets beat by Obama, Romney is going to be yesterday's news. I, along with my fellow Paulbots here will still be wondering why Romney ever got the nomination (outside of cheating).

Stay the course my friends. Liberty is past planting roots; it's growing and it will continue to spread. We ARE on the winning side.

Perfect time to bring this one back.

Yes. I really do feel like Liberty won today too. Let's go Paulbots!

We are going to

WIN!!!

Someday.

I do hope so.

why don't people vote to have

why don't people vote to have getting rid of the voting machines on the ballot?!?!??!?!?!

you know they're not audited right? so........................... where is the place to put the attention? Liberty candidates have to win by 15+% in order for them to try to not rig it. so..............

Sing it brother!!!

:)

May I make a minor adjustment?

I am so proud to have had Ron Paul as a teacher, and to have learned to stand on my principles.
Ron Paul stands on his principles, he is quite a man.
We need more like him; that is, people who stand on their OWN principles.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Very inspirational

Thank you.

With you on that :)

Great post!

Fear knocked on my door and Faith answered!

Bravo and thanks.

Nice to read a level headed post that gets what we Ron Paul supporters are all about.

No compromise on principle...ever.

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

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul

Some pano shots of the UVU rally I was meaning to post:

and here's a little liberty folk song I enjoyed while fans of liberty waited outside to show the good doctor their support and appreciation after the speech:
Liberty that's how we roll

You can't buy that Romney.

The long view

I was fortunate enough to have lunch with Dr. Paul in San Antonio back in, what was it, April? The fund-raiser was well attended by a diverse audience.

I've been a supporter of Dr. Paul since 1984 and have had a couple of occasions to meet him since before then. I'm not into hero worship in the least. In fact, if it is popular, I usually shun it. Exception: Dr. Ronald Earnest Paul.

The whole reason I bring this up is the following: as I was enjoying the camaraderie of our fellow Ron Paul supporters in San Antonio earlier this year at a fund-raiser attended by Dr. Paul and his wife and grand-daughter, I was able to catch a glimpse or two of Dr. Paul as he surveyed and admired the crowd assembled. He had the air of a proud (but not prideful) and contented grandfather. He looked over the crowd and I could see in his eyes not one shred of jealousy or need to be the center of attention. He appeared to me, at that moment in time, to realize that his years of toil and frustration were starting to see happy returns.

There are so many DP members who instill that same sense of happy resignation to the uphill battle that lies ahead. Is it the "strength in numbers" aspect that inspires such optimism in normally pessimistic people such as myself?

HELL YES it is!!

You mention your pessimism. I

You mention your pessimism. I doubt you can hold a candle to me in that department. But here's the thing I've come to understand about pessimism - it's a defense mechanism. I use it to protect myself from disappointment, and in politics, it's been with me since I took the red pill some 35 years ago.

I pride myself on being a realist, which is why this libertarian remains short term pessimistic, but in 2008 and again this election cycle I experienced emotions I haven't felt in decades. There were several occasions where, thanks to Ron Paul and this growing movement, my pessimism wilted. Seeing videos of his receptions at colleges across the country always does it - literally brings tears to my eyes and a lump to my throat.

Long term? Who knows. I'm still not ready to put aside my pessimist crutch, but now there's now this other emotion lurking. I think it's called hope.

I must be willing to give up what I am in order to become what I will be. Albert Einstein

Very well stated, Freedom's Remnant. Thank you.

I can always rely on a fellow DP member to boil things down to its essence better than I ever could.

The red pill I took was the night Nixon ended Bretton Woods ... and I was but a young tike at the time. So, Remnant, I completely understand and relate to every word in your reply above. Thanks for taking the time to help me better understand my on-again, off-again pessimism. It IS a defensive crutch for me as well.

I'm there with you on those principles. Even if this country is in shambles four years or less from now, there will be a remnant who believe in the old way. Glad there is a community of folks here who recognize the potential of that remnant.

"The rich man writes the book of laws the poor man must defend, but the highest laws are written on the hearts of honest men."

Could'nt agree more,

Eventualy the D P will get back to being the Daily Paul where constitutional republicans and liberty and freedom lovers will be supporting (even running for)Honest Principled candidates such as Tisha Casida who i follow on face book in Australia...
