Ron Paul sees himself as a teacher, not as a politician.

"My Influence comes through education, not the usual techniques of a politician." - Ron Paul

"Ideas are the only things that count." - Ron Paul

Ron Paul understands and had been very clear that his mission is to educate, not to gain political power.

He used congress as a platform to spread his ideas, he doesn't measure his success in congress by bills passed, he measures his success in the amount of people he's been able to educate.

"The world, at least in the long run, is governed by ideas; and it seems clear that libertarianism is only likely to triumph if the ideas spread to and are adopted by a significantly large number of people. And so “education” becomes a necessary condition for the victory of liberty—all sorts of education, from the most abstract systematic theories down to attention-catching devices that will attract the interest of potential converts. Education, indeed, is the characteristic strategic theory of classical liberalism." - Murray Rothbard

Our mission is to educate, to spread the philosophy of liberty, so that someday enough people will be informed to begin mass individual secession from the State.

Voting, and violent revolution are not the only options.

If enough people were to simply remove their consent from the State, it would be rendered irrelevant and ineffective.

This may give you an idea of what I'm talking about:
