A small victory for freedomSubmitted by mrbreeze1787 on Fri, 11/02/2007 - 18:42
I am 19 years old and this will be the first Presidential election I will vote in. I am proud to say that my 71 year old grandfather, who is the quintessential American (came out of poverty to provide an exceptionally prosperous life for his family through hard work and honesty) has recently registered to vote for the first time in his life, just so he can vote for RP. I am also proud to say that my 44 year old uncle has also registered for the first time to vote for RP. When I think about it, it almost brings a tear to my eye. Three generations, the elder two were so disillusioned about their own country's government, that they had never even participated in their civic duty of voting, and the youngest just now claiming his birthright of a political voice in the form of voting. Never before in the history of this great land has a presidential candidate had this kind of effect, because never in our history has a candidate offered this message of true freedom and REAL change. When the polls open, 3 men who have never voted will vote, a 19 year old, a 44 year old, and a 71 year old, and all three will vote for Ron Paul. When you see things like this, it can't help but make you think that there really is hope for America.
