Charity, the only way to sustain Ron Paul’s message

If you believe in the free market, individual liberty and Ron Paul’s message then please read this short post in its entirety. At this point in time, I don’t have to convince you that we are the torch bearers of this message / philosophy / lifestyle. To keep your attention, I’ll come right out and present THE ONLY SUSTAINABLE path for Ron Paul’s message and the Austrian Economic Theory.

Charity. I believe that the only moral & truly effective way for change to take place is for each of us to give our time and energy to the less fortunate through a very personal service to our fellow man.

Hear me out.

The liberty message is so much apart of me that whenever economic or political questions arise, my classmates turn to me for the answer, because so much of my thought and action is directly tied to what I’ve learned from Ron Paul, Murray Rothbard, Mises, Tom Woods, Martin Luther King, etc… I live the message, I talk about it, and anyone who has spent more than five minutes with me knows it. But I have fallen short. We have all fallen short.

I am a soon-to-be Doctor in the healthcare industry and I have personal interaction with a wide variety of socio-economical classes throughout my day. It struck me that the poor always seem open to hearing my thoughts about the economy and politics.

***I love seeing their faces light up when I speak about inflation and how it is destructive to the poor and those on fixed incomes.
***The reaction of my broken patients is uplifting as they realize that I value them enough to speak about individual liberty and the belief that all men are created equal and that content of character should be valued, not political or social class.
***It’s energizes me to realize that these people have never been presented the ideas of the free market or how they stand to gain from retracting our over-seas militarism.

I could go on and on. One issue with which I am certain is that for a free market to exist, it is the role of the individual, not government, to provide for the sick/poor. If you truly wish for market autonomy and a reduction of government spending/programs, the responsibility has and always will be in our hands.

I have very detailed plans how I will service the needs of those in my community. In doing so, I will continue to share my philosophy of FREEDOM and JUSTICE for all men. I will walk the walk and that will be the philosophy that is adopted by the men and women with whom I serve. I do not want to make this post too long, but if you subscribe to the Austiran Economic Philosophy, that of Ron Paul, Benjamin Franklin, Martin Luther King Jr, etc… then you too will realize that it is of the utmost importance for us to influence the under-served and thus preserve the beautiful message that Ron Paul has used to enlighten all of us.

This TED-TALK by Ron Finley helped me to connect the idea of service to the philosophy and love that I want to throw at everyone willing to listen. There are millions who need the message and are very willing to hear/learn. You will find that with the poor in your community. Through personal interaction, you will change your community. Lets change the composition of our community

Personally, I think sustaining sucks

I want to thrive!

I agree...and I look at

I agree...and I look at charity as a way of investing in humanity/people. Whenever people experience positive actions from others, they are more likely to do like kind. I wish I knew of more awesome volunteer ideas like Ron Finley's guerrilla gardening.

Thanks for the response.

Thanks for the response. Perhaps simple volunteerism is the key, with an added attempt to get to know the people you serve.

A touch of humility via face-to-face conversation over a warm meal with leaders in the under served communities would go a long way, it would give us incredible energy... not only to light the brushfires of freedom in the minds of the men you contact, but I have a feeling your perspective will change in very important and profound ways.

It would be more productive than beating up on your roommate in Chess.
