Let your hope fuel your conviction.
Don't let it blind you from reality.
Without seeing reality accurately... you cannot change it efficiently.
You can't offer a cure for a problem you can't diagnose in detail.
Would you rather plant your feet into the ground and push in exactly the right spot... or would you rather push with all your might while balancing on a tightrope that you've convinced yourself is the ground?
Example. Were you one of the thousands of people that thought Paul still had a chance after he publicly announced that he wouldn't have enough delegates?
Were you one of the thousands that failed to ignore the fact that the only way to win was to convince a THOUSAND neo-cons that already disliked Paul's foreign policy out of FEAR and their "disrespectful" and "party sabotaging/obama electing" supporters?
Were you one of the thousands who didn't realize the nomination attempt at that point was ONLY for the sake of getting him 15 minutes to speak?
If so, you spent all that time thinking the same things over and over again about him winning... when you COULD HAVE been thinking about who you were going to get behind and actually vote for... who out of the 3-4 candidates would promote liberty in the country the most whether or not they were a true libertarian... who would have the most positive effect out of those that have an actual chance... which candidate's good outweighs the bad?
Nope... you were too busy thinking about the literally impossible. For you to say it wasn't impossible is the same as to claim that Paul was a quitter by admitting defeat for the presidency.
