Why Did You Join The Ron Paul Revolution?Submitted by Delete on Fri, 07/12/2013 - 07:18
It's troubling to see what was a short time ago, a band of liberty-loving brothers and sisters, turning on each other. It seems to be agnostic vs. believer, Rand supporter vs. Rand detractor, Libertarian vs. Republican, etc. And anyone who dares to question some of the self-appointed gurus of the movement better be prepared for a litany of profanity! Discussion is good, hateful invective and ostracism aren't. If we don't hang together we shall surely hang separately. Maybe we should remember why we joined the Ron Paul Revolution in the first place.
I embraced the movement because of the man and the message. Ron Paul's character inspired me. Here was a politician who actually told the truth, was faithful to his wife, was consistently pro life regarding the unborn and foreign policy, emphasized excellence and virtue, and was never mean-spirited. The good Doctor's message of limited, constitutional government, non-interventionism, individual liberty and sound money made perfect sense to me and stood in sharp contrast to the others who were vying for the presidency at the time. In essence, I joined the Ron Paul Revolution because I believed, as Thomas Paine said, "We have it in our power to begin the world over again." I still believe that. FELLOW PATRIOT, why did you join the Ron Paul Revolution?
