I still think of myself as a liberal

The thing that drew me to Dr. Paul was his stance against the Federal Reserve. Overall I still support a great many liberal ideas, but in the US today it doesn't matter whether one would prefer liberal or conservative ideas. Both wings of the Republicrat party are owned by the same criminals. To me Dr. Paul represents the concept of taking our nation back from criminal technocrats and returning it to the people. If the will of the people is conservative, so be it. If it's liberal, so be it... the problem is that we don't know what the will of the people really is. We only know what the criminal media/government claim it is.

Dr Paul helped to wake me up to the fact that the whole game is rigged. The 2-party system doesn't actually represent "liberal" and "conservative" values anyway. Liberals don't support wars, Democrats do. Conservatives don't support wars, Republicans do. Conservatives don't hate different religions, Republicans do. Liberals don't hate Christianity, Democrats do... and these "parties" aren't loyal to their constituency, but to their big donors... and those donors are the same on both sides of the aisle.

At their inceptions, the #Liberty, #OccupyWallStreet and #TeaParty movements all had the same basic goal... What happened?
