I'm tired! I can't change things...what are we doing?

I have been in the garden since Friday, only logged on once on Sunday to check in and same ol same ol. I don't know what I am looking for, but I also don't know how to make a difference. I can't take all this truth and not have an actual outlet for change. I would just rather go back to putting my head in the sand and not know, than know and know I can't do a damn thing about it!

I have planted 3 apple trees, 3 peach and a fig in the last few days, that feels good. My muscles are sore, my body is sunburnt, but I feel good with my hands in the sand. Every topic here leaves me feeling disenfranchased and angry. I feel like saying, let me know when the revolution begins, until then count me out. i know I can't not know what's going on, but I also know I cant dwell on it day in and day out and not have an actual avenue for change.

I just can't take it..... I perhaps am weaker than the rest of you warriors. And I applaud you, i just can't sit here and take it all in and have no way to exhaust it.

I love you guys, and this is sooooo no the typical long goodbye that shows up here wanting people to beg them to stay. This is just how long can you expect people to abosrb sooooo much without any hope to change things....

The Eilte are not stupid

They are going to transform the Ron Paul and Obama 'revolution' into the World Citizen Revolution.

They have all of the media, most of congress, the internet, the military, the police, the G20, and they also have Michael Steele and Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck.

They own the Right, the Left, the Middle, the Up, the Down, and every direction in between.

Your job is to endure the Chaos that is coming.

Lots of people aren't going to make it -- realize this.

Our time here is limited and no alien or 2012 prophecy is going to save you.

FIGHT for Constitutional Conservative candidates to take back our Congress in 2010. Find them and donate to them no matter where they are from. That is the only way we are going to save this Republic. You cannot give up now! State legislatures all over the country are standing up for their sovereignty, now we need a congress that will do the same. I cannot do this alone. Ron Paul cannot do this alone. Peter Schiff and Rand Paul cannot do this alone. You must come with us once more into the breach FOR LIBERTY!

I have been fighting this battle since they

murdered Gorden Kahl. I often wish that I were ignorant of it all and were content to watch American "Idle." I too, have grown weary and stopped for breaks. Then I get back to it.

I keep on fighting because I am too stubborn to quit. I want FREEDOM.

He was murdered?

Federal agents tried to kill my dad on two occasions and a friend of ours was hit on the head with a catchup bottle by some stupid policeman, but I don’t think I ever knew Kahl got killed. (I might have heard it [I was only in my teens when Dad was in the patriotic movement in the Black Hills, back in the ’70s]).

If nothing else

I think maybe we are witnesses to Rome burning, one day you may write in your diary what it was like and how you coped with the stress. Good luck

The Revolution is just starting!

C4L is not even a year old.....the Revolution is still young and still growing, but the ground has become very fertile and with every heavy handed big government move from the new administration, it becomes an even richer environment.

We had a very inspiring Tea Party here in Tallahassee, FL yesterday - a few hundred were there - and ten of us from the Republican Liberty Caucus spent two days this week visiting our state reps to push some and thank some for work on a spending cap - and slashing the size of our government (the recession may be a crisis to some, but a whole lot of people we talked to in elected positions see it as an opportunity to reign in government - yay!) and a 10th Amendment notice to the Feds will be very likely be issued from Florida before the session is over, keep sending emails, they do read them!

I highly recommend to everyone - get your C4L/RCL or whatever group you may belong to - or even just a circle of like minded friends (give your group a name for a day) pick a day and make some appointments with your local elected officials - they see people everyday who are asking for more government money - they need to hear our side more often! several of our officials were noticably relieved to have a reprieve from the money moochers.

There will be another anti tax rally tomorrow here in Tally focusing on county issues - these are great events to hand out flyers at and educate people who are still waking up - massive Tea Parties are being planned for April 15th and the fourth of July - get in on it!

I Been Walking This Path For 25 Years...

Pre internet, passing books and flyers around...

and you are quitting after 49 measly weeks?

You can do better than that, take a few more off, work in your garden regroup but never quit. We are all tired but we are going to see this through...

32 years here.

Give him/her a break. Not everybody's the same. I never take a “breather” because it’s not in my nature. But most people aren’t that way. Besides, maybe this individual would be better off helping out in a different way or even in a completely different area. God made us all completely different people.

So, how long have you been working at this,


A year?
2 years?
10 years?

I've been at it since 1976.
You have to learn to keep the fire burning. Things don't happen overnight.
After 33 years of work, I still don't see the light at the end of the tunnel.
But, I know it's there.

Hey, relax, guy!

Calm down, go to freedomainradio.com, and start listening to podcasts. They cheer me up.


You've given us all some great advice; get out in
the garden---get your hands dirty! I need this advice
more than ever---I'm unemployed and it's pretty depressing.

You can't "change" America....
The deciet has gone on so long that most people see light as dark and dark as light and everyone walks in darkness. Even many of you...

It is over and it should be. We mock Natural Law...

By one drop at a time...

change can happen.
I got frustrated enough that I threw my name in the local commish race even though I hate politics [and most anything to do with crowds, and the spotlight].
I am seeing an interesting thing happen here. People are waking up to wanting to be heard and wanting true change. people are being responsive to the message. I am running on the basic platform of changing DC politics by changing the political process at a grassroots level.

people are ever so slightly starting to find their voice and challenge our local politics as usual. People that wouldn't normally speak up are starting to.

For me, I see that as hope because if they gain confidence in the small town issues, they just might be more open to banding together on the bigger issues we face as a people.

If its lower working class thats being hit the hardest, how can we reach them? What common ground do we have to start conversations?

You mentioned gardening and planting fruit trees, is there a way to get involved with a bartering network in your area?

I had seriously thought about leaving where we live, but really, no matter how bad it gets, I cannot leave the people where we live. [even if they are not all awake yet]

Don't give up just yet , are there others in your area that need help in preparing? [garden or otherwise]
Or elderly that don't have access to fresh garden food?

I guess I am saying that I cannot change whats happening on a larger scale, but seeing even small changes locally is giving me hope that I am not alone.

Keep trying :}

I have felt this way too...

Like I was happier not knowing the truth (even tho subconsciously I knew some truths).

Maybe just head back to the golf course and not notice the real world.

Or go back to writing some music all day and insulating myself from all the mad socialist world.

What does it really matter anyway? I'm not sure this freight train can be stopped until it derails on its own.

Some of us just wait

for the call to kick some ass. We will rise up, and we may well be defeated, but in the end, better to stand and get it, than to crawl and take it. We all will have our day, be patient.

What are we doing? We are trying to change things.

We all get sick of it all. I've gone though it about 15 kajillion times (for about 32 years now). If you're tired of the fight, take a break. If you want to quit, maybe you should quit. We'll be happy to carry on in your place.

Coming to grips with this stuff is taxing

When I first started learning about all of this stuff I felt like I was in a depression for a few days. I'd say take a break from the computer.

There have been many times where I sometimes felt like I wish I was ignorant of this stuff. But then again, this is the good fight, the right fight. Your common sense will guide you. Just remember that this is a marathon, not a sprint race.

Imagine how Dr. Paul has been moving forward for nearly 30 years on the economy and liberty. I'm sure its been taxing on him too.

There is progress being made every day. I see it at my work, people asking me questions. I see it with my facebook friends who are questioning why the government spends when we are broke. There are more liberty sites and video's popping up daily. This is all an opportunity to spread our message for the sake of liberty. This is real grassroots.

I honestly cannot fathom how he kept at this for 30 years...

Must be with the love of wife and family, and that is why it's hard for me, I guess, because my family thinks I am nuts.

Set yourself a goal for the

Set yourself a goal for the week to fulfill your patriotic duty. Maybe send out 10 DVD's and send out 10 articles After you are done, forget it until the next week. Some people can't handle all of this info overload without exploding. They want to fix it all fast and can't.

Once you have reached your goal you might enjoy your visits to the DP more.

By the way, I could care less if my family and friends get mad because I send them articles and DVD's. Most of them understand what this country is facing now. For a while they fought me on the stuff I sent them.

You are wise, my friend

Planting fruit trees, tending your garden, is a good and profitable thing to do. You are right; there is not much any of us can do. Petitions do not work; nor do writing letters, sending emails or making phone calls.

The people on Daily Paul have good intentions but no teeth, nothing to threaten with. There have been posts about militias but they will never materialize with things in such disarray.

Your main task now is to take care of yourself and your family. If you live in a fairly safe area (and that is a good question) then growing a garden might come in very handy as food supplies dwindle. If you have the money, getting out of the U.S. for a year or two might be wise. That is what I have done. I am still under the U.S. flag but on an island, way out in the Pacific. If martial law happens, it probably won't happen here.

It's going to get bad - so grow your garden and take care of yourself.


Zen what exactly are you saying in your response


This is a VERY INTERESTING response would you care to elaborate on it further?

If you had ever let yourself get past elections, you'd be happy

You never woke up and now you're overwhelmed. Maybe it's a good time to watch some stuff about the Rothschilds and Bilderbergers and all that crazy kooky stuff that doesn't affect anything. I'm not saying this to be mean, but I know you never stopped hoping that a petition or election was going to solve this thing. It ain't that simple. If you shut-up, you give-up.

Once you REALLY know what's going on, you'll feel way better.

I think things will get much

I think things will get much worse before they get better. The US is under judgement by God. By doing this he is calling us back. When people finally realize this things will change.

Little do you


i believe

the bible(though im no christian)said it best,

with much knowledge comes much sorrow

Nah -

I think you're just frustrated. We've done A LOT since Dr. Paul campaigned for president. It used to be no one knew who he was --- now everyone talks about him.

Ron Paul is on T.V. weekly if not daily these days. I remember back during the campaigns, he was hardly ever on. Not anymore. In fact, out of all the GOP candidates, he's the one you see all the time now. He gets more airtime than even McLame who WAS the GOP candidate. And no one even remembers Tancredo or that actor guy or those other random candidates.

I'm almost positive that those couple-a-hundred guests you see on here daily include lame-stream-media heads like O' Reilly, Beck, Dobbs, etc. This is where the more intelligent folks who look for real news to discuss hang out. If occasionally we question the bizaare, that's good because at least we're looking for explanations & answers.

We also give each other good tips & exchange info. on gardens, green energy, genetically engineered/ organic foods, etc.

Now because of his father, Rand Paul is on the verge of entering politics which can only be a good thing. We also support other liberty-minded candidates.

Oh yes, I think we've come a long way & it'll get better. It may get a bit worse at first, but better in the end. :)
