I'm tired of the cynicism that is pervading this site.Submitted by Sethster82 on Wed, 09/25/2013 - 10:58
"The filibusters are just political theater." "Glen Beck is only interested in liberty for personal gain." "Matt Drudge is only a news aggregator.""Rand Paul supported Romney." Etc.
Are we so beaten down that the only pleasure we find is in sticking it to the folks that are late in proclaiming the message of liberty? Sure Cruz's record isn't spotless. Sure Glen Beck was a dick to Ron Paul. Sure Drudge aggregates other sites content. Sure Rand Paul supported Romney. Sure there not perfect.
If we can't get over ourselves enough to invite new people from all strata of society into the fold then we are done.
Ron Paul worked hard to always point to the fact that it was about the message, not the messenger. Liberty has more messengers today than it has had in a long time. Lets not shoot them for not having a perfect track record or for the fact that their message wont change things overnight. Even if they have ulterior motives, lets take the momentum and grow the message.
This does not mean that we have to trust them, vote for them, send them money, etc. All need to be vetted. Let's just stop undermining the message because we don't particularly like the messenger. If the message they preach is bad then let's point that out.
Cynic's never change the world for the better. They always have an excuse as to why it won't work.
