This Made My DaySubmitted by kevink on Mon, 11/05/2012 - 20:52
This is a very small thing but it made my day. I was reading "The Creature From Jekyll Island" on the subway this morning while heading to work when I saw a finger wagging by my book trying to get my attention. I looked up and it was a (probably college aged) dude saying "that's good book". I was like "yeah, it's an excellent book".
We got off at the same stop to transfer trains and I lost track of him in the shuffle for a little bit but then saw him again and noticed he was carrying a book bag with a pin that said "Investigate 9/11". At that point I actually wanted to chat with the guy but I guess I felt weird about talking to a complete stranger about Sept 11th at around 9AM in a very crowded subway station stop. In retrospect I feel like probably should've anyway and at least exchanged emails with the guy or something. In any case, it was still pretty cool to feel like there's a certain camaraderie amongst people in the "liberty movement". I've gone up to people in bars who have Ron Paul hats or shirts and talked to them. It's pretty interesting how you can bring up any number of issues (e.g. gold, the federal reserve, Peter Schiff, etc) and it's very likely they know exactly what you're talking about.
As an aside, the guy actually looked somewhat similar to Luke Rudowski though I don't think it was him.
