DEAR DR. PAUL....Submitted by jfarbe1 on Thu, 01/31/2008 - 00:45
I am an avid supporter of you and have been for about a year now. Like so many of us, you have lit a spark in me that I did not even know existed and opened my eyes to so much in the world that I was unaware of. As a result I have donated to you, converted several friends to the revolution and nothing will stop me from voting for you on Feb 5th and the General Election. However, I am sad to say that for the first time in this campaign I come out of watching this debate disappointed.
While I am very aware that you were not given anywhere near an equal amount of time in the debate, and this angers me greatly, it is not my source of dissapointment. The reason that you have so many fans and believers is because you are absolutely right in all your beliefs and ideas. You are the one person in politics who is truly in it to make our country a better place and you never waver from your convictions no matter who is against you. It is for these reasons that when you do get to speak in debates normally you destroy the field, and make all the rest look like fools. In this debate however, I saw a man who was not looking to become president but simply to get his ideas out. A man who has accepted the fact that he won’t win the presidency and is in it just to be heard.
Yes I am thrilled that this message is getting out. I am happy that people are starting to open their eyes to the constitution. But NO, this is not O.K.! Myself and all your supporters are willing to fight tooth and nail, to do all in our power to get you elected and better this great country. But we can only do it if you show us yourself that you want it as bad as we do. If you’re asked “would Reagan support you” , saying “I don’t know who he would support but he liked the gold standard” is not good enough. We need to hear “Hell yes he would support me, infact I am the only one on this stage who he has actually campaigned for and I am the only true conservative up here!!!”. If they are talking the economy (a topic in which you are the only qualified person to discuss) and they skip over you when you have something to say don’t just raise your hand until they ask Mccain the next question, you stop them in their tracks and chime in! And finally while everyone is talking about cutting spending when it comes to you, your supporters and the American people don’t want to hear “yes I agree we need to cut spending especially by bringing people home overseas”. We want to hear “Everyone talks about cutting spending but I am the only one on this stage who has a plan of how to actually do it, by bringing troops home from around the globe and using that money in America. And when I become president you won’t just hear about a tweak here and there, you will see first hand how great this country can be when we give the power and the money back to the people!!”
I will support you through it all as long as it takes, and we are all aware of the hardships and challenges we have ahead. But this idea of spreading this great message will get lost quite a bit with Obillary McRomney as president. It would spread a lot faster if you won the election, and with the support of this great revolution we can make this happen! I hope that you believe this as much as we do. While we love and appreciate your modesty and candor, all that we ask is that you show us that you feel exactly as most of America does now. In the words of the film ‘Network’, that “You’re mad as hell, and your not gonna take it anymore”. America can relate to this and I suspect you well gain a whole slew of new supporters. We don’t know if in the end we will win or lose this election. But please show us you are not only in it till the end but that you’re in it to win it until we don’t. We Believe in you.
Thank you for everything Dr. Paul,
