Here's my story...

In 2008, I was an unenthusiastic Fred Thompson supporter with heavy libertarian leanings. I really enjoyed listening to Ron Paul and agreed with his positions, but felt he had no chance so I couldn't get behind him (yes, I was an idiot then). Once Thompson failed to get any momentum and dropped out, I was even more unenthusiastic...especially with the prospect of McCain, Huckabee, or Romney. Well, once McCain became nominee, I was disgusted until he selected Sarah Palin as a running mate. At that point, I became enthused again...I guess that's what the selection of a running mate should do. To me, without Palin, McCain would have been obliterated.

Flash forward to about a year ago. I was hoping Palin would announce and kept waiting. While waiting, I decided to give Ron Paul a chance...started reading his stuff, watching YouTube vids of his appearances and old speeches (plus, I was a fan of the old Morton Downey show when I was a kid...loved those appearances), and tracking his moves regarding throwing his hat into the 2012 GOP nomination race. That is when I had my political awakening. Once I was in for Dr. Paul, I was all in...no looking back...all of my free time went to reading about Dr. Paul and talking to any of my family and friends that wouldn't shun me when I told them about the greatness that is Ron Paul and, ultimately, his message of liberty. Eventually, I signed up to volunteer locally to go door-to-door spreading his message. My car is now decorated and my son talks about that amazing man that will be president, Dr. Ron Paul.

There are times when my eyes actually well up in tears when I am thinking about or speaking about Dr. Paul. I am confident that I made the right choice. And it isn't only about 2012, this was life changing for me, as I am sure it has been for many of you when you made the choice to support Dr. Paul.

Thank you Daily Paul for helping me with this ride. We aren't done yet...let's keep the fight going.
