My life as a NeoconSubmitted by saywhat5959 on Wed, 01/30/2008 - 13:44
Hello my name is Jake and I'm a Neocon...
All: Hi Jake
I am so ashamed to say up until 7+ months ago I had the wool pulled over my eyes. I hung on to every word that Sean Hannity and Rush said. (I had a little logic and could filter out some of the garbage.) (btw I posted this as a response earlier so forgive me if it is redundant I wanted to hear your stories.)
But, for the most part I was an Orange County CA, GW, Pro War, Go Newt, Republican.
What the HECK was wrong with me?
I remember the day I swallowed the "Red Pill" (yes I'm a geek too). It was geez 10 or so months ago. I was so sick of our current situation, not being able to really tell the Dems or the Reps apart. Suffering like all of you. I wanted something more. With the power of YouTube I started listening to crazy old Mike Garvel. (Talk about your 180) but it opened me up. It allowed me to consider what if??? What if (YOU DON'T HAVE TO TELL A SOUL) What if I voted for a candidate based on what their core beliefs and track record were and not even consider their party affilitation? CRAZY RIGHT?
Well that sunk in for a few weeks and I didn't do much research after that. UNTIL... Here is the real Red Pill. I was driving home from work one day and I see this box van, Let me tell you this was really really make shift. The box van had VOTE RON PAUL made with red and blue TAPE hehe. talk about your grassroots eh? I mean this thing was covered.
I went home and I started digg ing and googling and youtubeing. MY LORD!!! Never have I felt so just........ I don't know (lol some of the stuff I found is kind of whacky. Not Dr. Paul stuff but conspiracy stuff. YOU know what I'm talking about!!! hehe) anyway sorry for the segway. but. You mean to tell me that this guy has been in Congress for ten terms and has never changed his mind on this stuff? You mean a real life President who wants to protect what America and I actually stand for? This is awesome... but,,, there is no way he'll win. ENTER RON PAUL REVOLUTION. Are you kidding me? I haven't even done much and I feel like I helped get Dr. Paul get off and running. As if I was the one who started the RP REV. or convinced Dr. Paul to rerun. But I have done no more than donate a few hundres bucks (haven't even maxed out), posted a few signs, told a few people (educated a few people), and posted a few blogs (is that what you call these things?).
So, first of all thank you RP REVOLUTION for making us all part of this.
Thank you Dr. Paul for curing our/ my laryngitis.
Sorry this is so long and sorry for the misspellings (<--did I spell that right? lol)
I want to hear your story.
