A Thank You To Ron Paul.

Thanks for trying to chip away at the system from the inside. You've had to spend the majority of the last 30 years cooped up with the scum of the scum. Thankfully, rubbing elbows with disease riddled vermin has left you unplagued by their illness for more power, more money, more control, more, more, more.

Yet you've remained steadfast and vigilant. Widespread freedom has trumped concentrated power, at least in your mind. You've been the bullhorn of liberty, even when the screams of oppression drowned out your song, you remained hopeful, cheerful and, most importantly, confident.

If there's one thing we can all learn from your example, it's principles. Many times over you've had the chance to bend, to twist your own rules under the guise of "playing the game of politics", yet you remained strong, dug down and braced yourself for the darkside of politics. Even when the darkness became so over bearing that it dwindled the light of liberty down to a single lit wick, you remained the guardian of that flame, knowing that more believers would eventually return. If it wasn't for your unwavering character, the liberty movement might have died a 1,000 deaths in my lifetime alone.

Liberty exists outside of your existence or mine. As you've said many times, you're just the torch bearer. If you disappeared tomorrow, liberty would still exist. You didn't introduce me to liberty or freedom or even to the principles of being a libertarian, but you showed me it's potential. You've walked the path that's worth praise, something I rarely dole to any individual. I don't believe in idols but I do believe in the ideal, and you sir fulfilled that role better than most.

I can't personally thank you, but I can continue in your footsteps, not afraid to speak up, not embarrassed to do the right thing, not to proud to admit when I am wrong and never to shy to promote liberty and freedom for all, regardless of race, age, color, physical or mental stature. We shall all do our best to spread the message of liberty and to help fan the flames of liberty, even if only within ourselves, which you re-sparked.

Thank you.

Well said brother (or sister) in Liberty

What Dr. Ron Paul did not finish his son I think CAN using a bit different tactics:

sometimes LL can suck & sometimes LL rocks!
Love won! Deliverance from Tyranny is on the way! Col. 2:13-15


ignorant people downvote your every post even when there is nothing to dislike about it.

If I were you, thank God for your valued enemies and may their hatred burn them alive.

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.


LL is a candian TOOL who turned on RP before the republican convention.
calling ron and his family absurd disgusting names and posted for all to see while shilling for GJ and the non endorsed "paulfest".
It is a lib tool and nothing more and this "rand" endorsement is FAKE!
It lies, manipulates and seeks to destroy anything good in our country as it sits guzzling liquor and beer by the GALLONS in Canada.
Thats the truth if you care to hear it and there are dozens and dozens here who know it and have seen it.

Sounds good, eh?

Glad to E-connect with you former neighbor!

Fantasy Island is still going strong and bringing smiles to childrens faces. I can't recall Jolly Clown but perhaps I am too young (not to age you)

I'm sure our Northern Neighbors feel a similar sentiment towards us when we head up to Clifton Hill and remind them how much better at being drunk we are.

Labatt Blue, Niagara Falls, and the sunsets... for 2 months.. then 10 months of, dang, I have to wear snow pants... again!

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.


It snowed in 2005 in Galveston 5 inches!!!!
They shut down schools for a week and power lines froze!
They were making texas snowmen with cowboy hats and long cigars!!

Yea Jolly Clown is old, they sold it in the 70's I only heard about it.

snow pants!lololol.

I remember one year there were mountains of piled snow in the mall parking lots lasting until JUNE!
We had to build tunnels through the snow to get to the front door!
It was too high to shovel and move so we built tunnels!lol.
nice speaking with you too, Buffalo!
