Ladies and Gentlemen of the Daily Paul communitySubmitted by Enonesoch on Mon, 12/16/2013 - 22:58
Ladies and gentlemen, we are now entering a very important election season. During the intervals between elections we find ways to continue researching, questioning, self-educating, and enlightening those who are curious about our particular views and the general atmosphere of politics generally. During these 'down-times' we find ways to stay involved and up to date on the various movements of politics and the general direction of the societal landscape. Also, during these times, we here at the Daily Paul debate and hash-out that which shines light on the different opinions/values/beliefs/ principals within this tight knit community. And surely this activity of debate is a tool for sharpening our abilities to articulate our positions, and strengthening the foundation of our particular principals. I believe we have used this time well.
'Down-time' is now over, we are entering into a very important election season. Those of us that have been here since the beginning know how and with whom this current 'power to the People' movement began. In 2007 I woke up...I was awakened, by Ron Paul. It is time to reclaim the energy, it is time solidify our movement, it is time to find that which we can agree on and pursue the further development of this liberty movement. It is time to get the word out about elected officials that we feel are restricting the individual Rights of the People they represent. It too is the time to get the word out about elected officials that we feel are defending the individual Rights of the People they represent. It is time to find out who is running in your state, and share what you have found, with us online and others in your local environment. It is time to begin supporting the liberty candidates with word of mouth, passing out literature, donations etc.
Although we debate, and some might say argue, we are not splintered, we are not divided. Remind yourself that this is not a game, not a form of entertainment. For all my life, up to 2007, I had believed that the government and the People were separate things. This, I have come to see, is false. We see that the government has a drastic effect of the well being of the People, that is, if it is not kept in check.
And so I ask that we re-group, I ask that we stand once again, together as a force, as a movement of unity. Let us reignite our creativity, let us propose new ideas to advance the movement of liberty, and let us support each other in this endeavor. Bring your projects into the light, propose the Money Bombs with time to spread the word, hone your particular skills and use them to expose the truth of the dysfunctional authoritarian political reality of our society. Let us stand again, together. We need the Senate and House, but it won't mean much if we fill them with chumps, we need leaders, we need true representatives, we need defenders of the Constitution. We were the spark, the flame was lit and has been spreading... that was round one. Round two has begun, get to your feet, take a deep breath, lift your hands, and get ready to fight with every ounce of energy you have for all that is still good and right in this world.
