I friggin' love the Daily Paul!Submitted by AzimuthCoordinator on Sat, 02/02/2013 - 11:52
Never in my life have I conversed with such articulate, intelligent people. I just want to say, "Thank you", to all of you.
I am 34 years old. I've always had a passion for politics, and, more importantly, Peace. My first taste of this came when I was 12 or 13 years old, and I remember sitting in the back seat of my dad's car listening to the beginnings of the first Iraq war. I remember crying my eyes out, asking my father why we had to go to War. I didn't understand it, and I still don't, to some extent.
Soon thereafter, I grew my hair out and discovered Pink Floyd, The Grateful Dead and Phish. I spent several years travelling with the latter of those bands, i.e. I became a total hippie. I was a Democrat. I was what Liberals are supposed to be - an anti-war, pro-civil liberties protesting machine.
I wholeheartedly supported Obama in 2008, drinking the Kool-Aid like many others. When he announced he was sending 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan in 2009 or 2010, I gave up. I was so sad.
Then, a few months later, a good friend of mine called me up and begged me to google "Ron Paul". This changed my life. I became passionate again, and remain so. I am forever in debt to this friend for that.
I guess my point is I am so happy to be a part of this movement. I sleep at night knowing I am promoting the cause of Liberty and Peace, and it is so refreshing knowing all of you out there agree with me.
Thank you. My rant is over.
