The champion

The champion of
Liberty, peace, and markets
In contemplation

A visionary

Wow, this is addictive!

A visionary
Ridiculed, standing alone
Now leads a movement

the eyes in his headsee the

the eyes in his head
see the world spinning around
yet the truth stands still

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

Thank you very much! :)

Seriously loved your Thank you note Haiku form! :)
& the encouraging message contained within;
thanks for taking the time :)

time is wasted in minutes not hours

The One

The One
There was only one
Who so loved his countrymen
inside Washington

The Stand
Dare he make a stand
When all were raised but his hand
To protect our land

The Petition
Thank you for your prayer
A nation to once more care
Heart and soul laid bare

The Change
His bills he unfurled
Jokes, laughs at him they hurled, but
He would change the world

The Inspiration
Had he not aspired
To run, serve and not grow tired
Would we be inspired

The Draw
He draws old and young
To love this land we won, and
The Constitution

The Message
Come as you are, see
That freedom is popular
Fed steals your dollars

The Texan
He fights for a cause
Honest in all that he does
The man from Texas

The Fame
To Congress he came
Seeking not fortune or fame
Now all know his name

The Honor
Before hardly known
Ten terms worked and now gone home
Honor, his alone

The Hope
Your time so well spent
Hope you know how much it's meant
You're our President

The Diligence
You answered the call
Oft' alone but standing tall
We love you Ron Paul!

Brilliant, insightful;
Warmth and joy touches when you
Read Eslynn's Haikus

Proclaim LIBERTY throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof

Thanks so much

for your generous and kind encouragement.
Great Post idea - evokes more sensitive, transparent feelings to surface
when confined to such concise number of syllables.
I really like this pic - for the same above reason. Our meek (strength under control) warrior, persevering, contemplative, giving so much, ignoring the naysayers, full of mighty wisdom, freedom message bearer.

I would call it 'Send Me'

Kill the banks!

I like my freedom
Banks take away my freedom
Criminal are banks



The world's gone crazy
Liberty's end approaches
Ron Paul is my Prez.

When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign: that the dunces are all in confederacy against him. ~J. Swift

this picture is a great metaphore for Dr Paul's exp in Congress

I once was alone
but many minds have been freed
I'm alone no more

Haikus.. not my thing

I always hated haiku
because I was compelled to do them
in public schools

I'll try again because it is fun.

What time will this start?
Did I water the garden?
Think I will call Carol.

"We can see with our eyes, hear with our ears and feel with our touch, but we understand with our hearts."


you've got it !



A quiet momemt
The Colosseum filling
He slays with the truth

Now that

paints a picture!



I can see the people pouring in.
I can hear the chant, President Paul.
I can feel the emotions in the air.

Jesse Benton

How'd Benton get hired?
Wed the boss's granddaughter,
Ron's a nepotist


Benton understood the business of politics and his interest in Ron Paul's political business, is how he met Ron Paul's grand daughter. Kelly Paul, Rand's wife is a political consultant.

Politocs is a business that spans profit and non-for profit businesses, and why it's onteresting from an economic stand point, though the vast majority are about the "drama", which they personify, and media gives the population an "arena", but it's not like that, which most also know, why so many have registered Indy, though this is not by accident anymore than the apathy for America.

Benton did what he was told to do. Ultimately, there is ONE person responsible for a campaign in their name.

Ron Paul is an acception, as you will read, "except Ron Paul". Ron Paul says he agrees with Rand 99% and those who divde Rand and Ron are "wedgedrivers".

As a messagner, Ron Paul's quotes are taken by many in many ways. The message I got was join the GOP, become a delegate, we are the future. Many here on Dp never heard that message, though some did and decided they rather not. I don't regret joining the GOP. It was hard to do, but Ron was and is right.. it's the best place to advance within Rand's political perspective, for example, Economic Freedom Zones". It's an easy sell.

So, Benton KNOWS the business of politics and those who blame Benton do not.

Rand Paul 2016

Poodle-headed Rand
Smokes joints for Aqua Buddha
Jheri-curl toupee

made me laugh!

I admire Rand.Love the "aqua Buddha" reference even though I thought it referred to kneeling and praying at a toilet after drinking too much...


Ron Paul 2016

Wrinkly old gyno
Thought he could be President,
Tilting at windmills.


When brilliance starts a mission
THey must travel the hell road alone
To eventually awaken a generation!

In my Borough

late winter's 'telling
'is a'lone for a dwelling?
his b'orrows the 'rents



I've always hated this damn picture

It breaks my heart


Haiku : Ron Paul

He was from Texas
He traveled to Washington
The awakened cheered



There once was a man
who won the heart's weary seat
and the people's mind.

Father - Husband - Son - Spirit - Consciousness

The only way I like this

The only way I like this photo is if it is next to a shot of Ron Paul speaking before colleges in May of 2012!
