Why I've become disenchanted....Submitted by easyfnmoney on Thu, 04/24/2008 - 14:00
So I havent posted here in several months. I figured instead of sitting around talking with you sheeple on this site, I'd go ahead and get ready for the Kentucky Primary. So far, after talking to coworkers, and friends, and neighbors and informing them about Ron Paul, some have pledged to vote for him as a moral obligation, others feel like if they vote for him, they are wasting a vote.
Thats fine, ppl are allowed to make their own decisions based on what information is infront of them. You can't make someone go against thier personal opinions.
You may say, this doesn't sound like someone who is disenchanted. Well, to your standards, it is.
Ron Paul has publically said that he can't win this race. Infact, vegas odds makers say that Hillary Clinton has the same chance of getting the nomination as Ron Paul (In each of thier respective parties). The odds for that are next to none. RP has also said that he is not abandoning his campaign in hopes to educate America and raise awareness on the problems we face. When John McInsane was corinated as the Presumptive GOP nominee, you may have noticed that Ron Paul began to get more and more MSM media coverage. More interviews, more spotlight, more of everything we needed, however we could have used it more about 6-8 months ago.
You still may ask, how have you become disenchated...
Let me explain.
It's evident that us Ron Paul supporters have money. Its no secret. Look how much we've given him. When people start shelling out big bucks, predators always arise.
I dont want to use this as an primary example, because there are many more out there, but it came to a point to where I came to this board and probably half of the posts were wanting me to donate to this fund, or that fund and while I know that all of our blimps, race cars, limos, need money to fund them, I have to ask myself... Does this help out, more than canvassing?
It seemed as if everytime I went to my regular message boards, someone always wanted money out of me, or the other readers, for some crazy innovative grassroots campaign idea. Don't worry, I have plenty of money, but why would I donate to some sketchy looking website with little or no promise to even do what you say you were going to do (i.e. Ron paul racing).
Also, while I'm all for Grassroots support and I think we have a great thing going for us... Our grassroots, have been uprooted by a certain few individuals who believe they can spearhead the revolution with their own blessing. They put a "Dr." infront of thier name, and they can't tell us if they are a Psy Ed, a MD, PhD or even what college they are alumni. While this may seem irrelavant to some, to others, it presents a credability gap. Espicially when you clash with the original leaders of this movement such as Alex Jones. Others want to use the internet for other counterproductive measures such as organizing your own march on washington. While I did plan on going to the march in June, I have become so disenchanted with all of the other unofficial marches, that this seems irrelavant at this point. The mafia that runs our government could careless where we protest, whether its on thier front door steps, or in our back yard. They have their own agenda, and if they cared about what the people thought, we wouldnt have a war, a huge deficit, crazy gas prices, and the price food skyrocking. The only protest that is viable right now is electing each one of us to congress to fix this debacle. These career politicians need to be ousted and the only REAL protest we can have is registering to run for congress ourselves and ousting these career politicians and exercising the RP platform in congress ourselves. A real protest happens at the polling stations, not in Washington.
I think there are alot of ppl who spread bad information and want your money around here. If you feel like you in agreement with me, I hope you also agree with the next statement:
So here I am, a rouge, independent Ron Paul Supporter working on my own agenda, not anyone elses. Why give anymore money?
TIME = Money
and the more time you spend on this, the better off we will be in the long run.
No, I'm not a Paulite, a Paultard or anything of the sort. I'm a supporter. If you must label me, call me a Rouge Ron Paul supporter. I plan on running for Congress in the future. I hope you support me and think independently as I do.
