But in the real world, Vets orgs and banks are not likely to get together without some encouragement by some "respectable" go between.
I HAVE ideology.
The Bill of Rights
v limited Federal Government
zero Fed income taxes
a Jeffersonian foreign policy
competition between individual states, not monopolistic Federal Laws.
If we burnt 90%+ of the Federal Laws passed, the USA would be in a MUCH better position.
Perhaps you could burn 100% of them, I haven't gone into it that far considering where we are now.
The American public is not idealistic like you, as Ron Paul's campaign just proved.
They are nowhere near ready for your message.
Put it in terms that they might understand.
Be pragmatic about it, taking into account human nature.
Tell them "what's in it for them" in practical everyday terms.
Try to understand where 90% of the American public are in their current thinking.
Clue 1: It really is quite sickening and disheartening
Clue 2: NEVER use the terms Liberty, Freedom, end the Fed, bring the troops home, end the wars.
You would get so MUCH MORE public support if you did this.
It is easy to present Ron Paul's policies (to a sufficient degree to get the general public to start listening) without mentioning ANY of these terms.
If you can hook them.
They can read more about it and go into more depth on Ron Paul's website and then other informational/educational places.
And then you CAN use those terms.
But you HAVEN'T hooked them and won't in sufficient numbers with the methods currently being employed
Pragmatism, being realistic, using COMMON SENSE.
"In the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all -- security, comfort, and freedom. When ... the freedom they wished for was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free."
