What's It Going To Take To Awaken The American People?

If this was 1969 all over again, and the draft still existed would college campuses be so silent today?

How many people are truly wide awake in America?

25% at best? How can the tireless minority light a fire under the sleeping majority without causing harm?

There's been a lot of hype about, "the imminent financial collapse," but I don't buy it. What other world currency is going to replace the dollar? A financial collapse would turn the simmering pot into a quick boil, causing too many frogs to jump out of the pot.

Incrementalism is the recipe for a total takeover. They don't want the frogs to feel the heat building up.

Is a financial collapse the only thing that will wake up the average American who cares more about their local sports teams than their own country?

People seem to care only when they are hit hard in the wallet. Americans have been hit hard in their wallets, but the hit didn't happen over night, it happened over a century, very slowly since 1913.

Russian troops are now coming to America to help protect us, the NSA is spying on every single American citizen while the border remains wide open, 70% of Americans are on prescription drugs, the IRS is targeting Obama's political enemies, the media has become a target for assassination, and an American citizen who dares to tell the truth is called an enemy of the state.

Good Lord.

What is it going to take to change the tide?

Rand Paul is my only human hope. I firmly believe that he shares the exact same opinions and values as his father, but Rand doesn't wear his heart on his sleeve like dad does.

May God please help us.

If Rand is all you have, you are still groggy.

The Rand Paul who "enthusiastically endorsed Mitt Romney even as Romney's thugs were intimidating, defrauding, assaulting and kidnapping Ron Paul delegates, not to mention supporting the NDAA?

The Rand Paul who endorses using drones for domestic crime fighting, even as evidence clearly mounts that kill TEN TIMES as many civilians as other methods of crime control?

The Rand Paul who voted for sanctions on Iran and support for Israel, even if it means starting World War III?

The Rand Paul who supports illegal immigration?

Ron Paul did not "wear his heart on his sleeve". Ron Paul did not have the guts to fight for his delegates. In that way, you are correct, Rand is just like Ron.

Simple

The psychology is simple.

Does it affect me ? Yes/No

Immigration brought out massive protests. Why ?
They felt personally attacked by it.

War protesting ? Doesn't affect me, not a problem.

Anyone's message must take this at it's core.

It's why politicians repeat "More Jobs, more Safety"

Because it affects people personally.
It's nothing to do with Logic.

Only the primal urges being satisfied.
Avoid this truth, and you are wasting your time.

Why did they assassinate Martin Luther ? And not some no body saying the exact same things down the road ?

Because people had a personal attachment to him, and not the other guy. What he said, they accepted as truth. They saw him as themselves.

It personally affected them.

It's not Rand that I put my hope

It is all those rEVOLutionaries, Liberty Movementers, Patriots, and tea partiers who took Ron Paul's message seriously, and joined the GOP, took seats, chairs, and offices, became state and national delegates, and didn't stop after the selection, despite GOP loyalty oaths, broken bones, vandalism, personal atacks, censorship, fights within and outside the GOP, they continued to go to meetings, learn Robert's Rules of Order, went to converntions, flooded the floors, infiltraited the leadership, worked together, networked city by city, county by county, state by state, Rand or No Rand, held onto Ron Paul's message of LIBERTY and drove it HOME. They made their committees Liberty committees, they were elected to seats and offices, and they work on sub committees, by-laws, resolutions, inniatives, and continue to volunteer on more committees, youth committees, event committees, campaigns for inniatives and candidates, from fundraising to organizing, to writing letters, sending tweets, facebooks, editors, council members, board of supervisors, congresscritters, senators, corporations.. they don't stop.. they are my hope.. they are my pride.. they are who I stand with even more than Rand and I stand TALL for Rand because he deserves it.

With all due respects to Ron Paul who got us into theis mess, we will prevail, and we will WIN, because we are RepubliCANS and WE ARE THE FUTURE.

With all due respect

Other r3VO_|utionaries have chosen a different route via

a new party
http://www.facebook.com/FreeDominionPoliticalParty

and ideology ("Dignitarian" : to raise the Status of conscionable choice)
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Michael-Galganski/595972723749410

They are the cowards among us

They are the one who refused to get in and fight with us and now they/YOU think that you are going to create and establish a machine to ruin our years of hard work and sacrifices and for what? some no body bozo that won't get to debate, might get ballot access in some places.

GROW UP

>

1) "cowards among us"

I would challenge this since throwing one's name into the public arena as a political candidate requires fortitude during scrutiny and criticism

2) "They are the one who refused to get in and fight with us"

I started a new party because I do not agree with the Republican premise of coercion to achieve its ends (ie. taxation, foreign intervention etc)

3) "and now they/YOU think that you are going to create and establish a machine tio ruin our years of hard work and sacrifices and for what?"

If a competing Party has a more principled platform and advances the cause of individual dignity, then yes it would get my vote

4) "some no body bozo that won't get to debate, might get ballot access in some places"

No one knows the future and it is likely that Dr. Ron was told the same thing years ago, while I believe that his contribution still retains value

5) "GROW UP"

I am saddened that the 3VO_| seems to have been lost

Ahhhh

The peanut gallery will save us ?...Will the 1% please stand up ! LOL
This has been tried for years and has failed MISERABLY....Ron Paul himself has said which basket our eggs need to be going in and it is clearly NOT a third party...Go away Peanut...

"If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin."
Samuel Adams

>

1) "The peanut gallery will save us?"

I believe that a combination of popular favor, principled leadership and ethical law can properly restore the balance of just governance; if it is through the vehicle of a new Party, so be it

2) "1%"

As previously debated, new Parties have to start somewhere and I do not mind assuming the risk of its enterprise

3) "This has been tried for years and has failed MISERABLY"

The Republican party has also had its share of defeats, so belonging to a single group is no guarantee for success

4) "Ron Paul himself has said which basket our eggs need to be going in"

One man's analysis doesn't mean it is correct for each individual

5) "Go away"

You are free to assume the risk of supporting an unpopular party, just as I am free to support a fresh association

1. We don't have decades to

1. We don't have decades to turn this thing around and what your proposing would most certainly take decades IF it is ever achieved at all. It will only serve to push back the strides in which have already been made.

2. The more unpopular the party is at the moment simply makes our job easier in reeling it in and casting it in a new direction.

3. You are free to support whoever or whatever you want. You are also free to sit back with your pie in the sky fruitless Intellectual BS while your country continues to deteriorate on a daily basis at a pace in which we have never seen before. If its repeated failure you chose that's fine but try and not drag the rest of us with common sense down with you..K ?

That is all...

1) "what your proposing would most certainly take decades IF it is ever achieved at all"

Perhaps; if the cause however is just and its ideals have value, then I believe it is worth doing

2) "It will only serve to push back the strides in which have already been made"

Predispositional bias: no one knows the future, and if our principles duly find mutual agreement

3) "You are also free to sit back with your pie in the sky fruitless Intellectual BS while your country continues to deteriorate on a daily basis at a pace in which we have never seen before"

I have chosen a viable philosophy while creating a constructive organization and if it's in contrast to other competing parties, so be it

4) "If its repeated failure you chose that's fine but try and not drag the rest of us with common sense down with you..K?"

Go your own way and I will mine and if our causes meet again, I would not discount you

Go for it

intellectualize the fact that you didn't stand, you ran.. and you;'re going to LOSE. Prepare to LOSE. ENJOY IT, becasue that's what is going to happen to you.

2).. you and 33/ 36 other third parties.. I can't wait to see you get in the debates.. cricket choir

3) More principles? We are taking the GOP and making it ours.. every committee is different just like on DP.. my liberty committee is not like other liberty committees, we have our differences, but what's more is we want to end the GOP that was and make it a GOP that works for us.. so what are you going to do.. make your own little party of "principled" SPOILERS.

4) Ron Paul joined the GOP

5) After 33 years of losing in the lame Libertarian Party and being an Indy, I did GROW UP, it took GUTS, but I did it. It wasn't easy, it wasn't kind, I had to fight, I had to work, I had to learn, and I had to get elected, and I had to show up and speak up, and stand up.. and now.. I'm with an AWESOME party of LIBERTY minded people in the GOP, si I GREW UP!! Now why don't you.. you have the priciples of a cowards and refuse to fight with us so you're going to go against us? looking forwards to your cricket choir.

Meld and conquer

Instead of beating about and trashing chaff and grain, everyone go their own way to the goal of renewed constitutional superimecy. We all want our liberty and freedom, don't we?

Agreed

I think you hit on a main theme.. renewed constitutional, bill of rights foundation.. we can have our differences in other areas, but one.. I think you nailed it.

Agreed

What I would call principled agency as embodied in the Constitution is key

Awesome

So why not join us and let us support you rather than rebuild a wheel and compete against us?

That's a tough one, TG

I apologize for insulting and being unaware of your efforts to re-define the GOP while as mentioned before, I have political reservations about the party name.

I'd like to think however that what I'm doing still contributes to a mutual cause

Happy Independence Day

I give you credit for at least getting in to do something.. I hope you at least check out your local GOP central committee.. see if you can relate.. see if you can get support.. see what they can do FOR you. Again, THANK YOU for your stepping up to serve our public.. God knows they need good people. GO FOR IT!

Peace be with you.

+1

.

You're a real piece of work

EDIT: Know what? I'm just going to delete the wall of text that was once here and put you on ignore rather than allow myself to get annoyed by your...well, everything. I'd get further talking to a wall than I would you. I'd probably get more intellectually stimulating responses from the wall as well.

A signature used to be here!

>

1) "intellectualize the fact that you didn't stand, you ran"

Disagreement and as already stated: I refuse to participate with the Republican ideology of coercion

2) "you;'re going to LOSE"

Presumption

3) "you and 33/ 36 other third parties.. I can't wait to see you get in the debates.. cricket choir"

Rand Paul is not competing with me for City Council, where my candidacy has a stronger chance of public reception

4) "More principles?"

Yes> Republican ideology conventionally endorses taxation for example, which unethically threatens the innocent with injury. Similarly, it does not explicitly advocate the right to withdraw from abuse as Free Dominion does

5) "We are taking the GOP and making it ours.. every committee is different just like on DP.. my liberty committee is not like other liberty committees, we have our differences, but what's more is we want to end the GOP that was and make it a GOP that works for us"

I wish you success, as was one of the points of my original post. Otherwise, I see no problem with further developing the case for principled agency outside the GOP

6) "SPOILERS"

If your party apparatus is so sound, there should be no issue with a competitor

7) "Ron Paul joined the GOP"

It worked for him as a Presidential candidate; I believe my circumstance has other advantages on the local municipal level

8) "Libertarian Party and being an Indy"

I similarly challenge LP and Indep ideologies as being inconsistent and under-developed

9) "I GREW UP!! Now why don't you"

Your emotional outburst and personal insulting fails to persuade me that Dignitarian ideology is less sound

10) "you.. refuse to fight with us so you're going to go against us?"

Long-term, I do believe that Free Dominion has greater potential than the current Republican Party. May your efforts towards a more virtuous political vehicle, however be fruitful

<

1) How many GOP meetings did you attend in your county? I bet none.
2) Fact.. I'm putting 12 years and 3 elections of wotking to establish balot access and open debates with over 60 law suits that we lost every one as proof.
3) Who brought up Rand? I said it's not Rand, it's those who joined the GOP and worked to establish Liberty commitees.. tell me you're city council so I can send the GOP there a donation, and give support for your GOP opposition.
4) Republican for 08/ 12.. the pronciples of those we drove out after the selection of Obama? You don't know the GOP. I'm NEW to the GOP and there are thousands just like me establishing a LIBERTY GOPs.
5)I have success, we have success and just tell me the name of your city so I can fund your GOP opposition.. you're going to SEE success right in your own city!
6)Here you are on DP doing what? Stealing our message? Fighting us.. so let's make it clear.. you have the right to your vanity campaign, and i/we have the right to undo you, which we will, because that's how our apparatice works (politics).. we're not playing games.. we in to win.. and you're going down vanity candidate.. it's nothing personal to us.. but it will be to you.. what city are you in?
7)It worked for him as a congressman every campaign. It didn't work for him as a presidential candidate.. but what it did was build a new GOP of Liberty republiCANS you choose to compete. GAME ON! Where is your city?
8)LP ideologies are quite developed, they are unfortunately infiltraited by the GOP.. and Indys have no representation, just the right to vote for what other parties put on the ballot.
9)You don't get it.. and to cop a psuedo intellectual defense and accuse me of being emotional proves that you think you know better.. Just tell me what city you live in.
10) I'm going to crush you.. nothing personal.. I relish competition.

prepare to lose.

>

1) "How many GOP meetings did you attend in your county? I bet none"

Correct and as already mentioned, I do not believe in what has been an implied ideology of coercion. I will similarly stand corrected if reforming the current GOP, while exercising the right to politically start anew

2) "tell me the name of your city so I can fund your GOP opposition"

Declined. Secondly may I ask if you're opposed to the ideology which I'm advocating?

3) "Here you are on DP doing what?"

Advocating what I believe is a more principled and original option than Libertarian, Republican, Democratic, Green or Independent ideologies in a fresh vehicle: Dignitarian platform via the Free Dominion Political Party

4) "Stealing our message?"

False: you previously stated that the Libertarian Party was lame yet you still partially identify with it ("Libertarian / Republican"); which is it--yes or no?

5) "i/we have the right to undo you, which we will"

Continued presumption

6) "It worked for him as a congressman every campaign. It didn't work for him as a presidential candidate"

Partial agreement: if more success is found by going local for new Parties, City Council candidacy should work in my favor

7) "LP ideologies are quite developed, they are unfortunately infiltraited by the GOP"

I thought you said that the GOP was reformed. Which is it?

8) "to.. accuse me of being emotional proves that you think you know better"

Disagreement; I simply believe that Dignitarianism is a more viable ideology

9) "Just tell me what city you live in"

Declined on apparent malevolence

10) "I'm going to crush you"

Tis a shame we are not in the same race because I think it would be a captivating contest.

Good day

contribution to your cometitor is malevolence?

that's some principle.

No

but the persistent inquiry concerning my whereabouts gives pause for my personal safety

You are so vain

I don't care who you are, I don't want your address, I simply want to contribute to the support of your GOP competition because you believe in competition, and I believe in eliminating the competition because I want GOP Liberty to win.

>

I want virtue, good will and benevolence to win.

You are free to contribute to whomever, while my hope is that if our causes are just, our roads will meet again on good terms.

Happy 4th weekend to you

Be prepared to fight

Because I for one am not going to let you win.

private world

The government is incapable of doing what it's supposed to do. A job like the provision of security is something best left to private institutions.
-Ron Paul

And yet

Ron Paul was a lifelong Republican except for all of SIX months to accept the presidential nomination of the Libertarian Party.

While I don't disagree with Ron Paul that private security is better by private institutions like BLACKWATER or campus police or Home Security Services.. they all fall under the unbrella of big brother, or they are targetted as terrorists https://www.ncjrs.gov/pdffiles1/bja/210678.pdf
