The Election is over, Time to Educate.Submitted by Dixie-Paleocon on Tue, 11/13/2012 - 00:39
We gave it our all this election cycle and came up short. But, if you look at the sorry condition of our countrymen today, I think we can all agree that we've all accomplished more - Ron Paul has accomished more than any realist ever thought possible. The Ron Paul Revolution has awakened more Americans to sound economics, strict Constitutionalism, and the cause of liberty and self-government more than any political movement in decades. Some see Barrack Obama in the White House still and believe this country is past the point of no return. But, the truth is as long as their are patriots out here who believe in the principles that our Founders believed in THERE IS HOPE FOR AMERICA!!!
The election is over and the political action is done. But, our job has just begun. The next phase in taking our country back from the bureaucrats, the imperialists, the statists and restoring Constitutional government is mass education. For three generations a least, Americans have been getting brainwashed by big government statist curricula in our public schools. The only way to win politically is to win philosophically first. So, let's put a Tom Woods book in the hands of a neighbor, let's buy two dozen copies of an easy-to-read economics book from Mises.org and distribute them out to local college students, let's send acquaintances over to Mises and encourage them to take advantage of the massive amount of free material. Let's buy a book by Ron Paul for our family members for Christmas, let's keep the chat room and comments sections online full of "Paulbots," and most importantly, let's educate ourselves so, we'll know how to defend what we believe and be able to convince others as well.
Lastly, let's not forget, in the political off-season, we're not trying to win people over to a person or a party, but, to an ideology.
