Comment: You lost me...

(See in situ)


You lost me...

You lost me at "[RP] should have..."
I believe that the pen is mightier than the sword. Like RP said, "Live by the sword, die by the sword". If you still believe that our freedom is granted to us by the state, then, by all means, fight them for it. I really liked the original concept of this liberty campaign... a Love rEVOLution. IMO, the only way to attain their respect of our rights is through education. IMO, you cannot compel "them" to respect your right to liberty. And if you think you can, how are you then not a hypocrite? I am with RP. His desire was not to be POTUS. He was prepared to be it, but had no overt yearning for it. His PRIMARY goal was, and continues to be education. An idea who's time has come cannot be stopped by any any army, or any government! I would suggest we re-group and focus on that IDEA. The idea that we need to fight for our rights is, imo, the fundamental error in thought. And yet, if you live in such fear for your life that you must, it might serve you to call that out for what it is... it is rooted in fear... not love. If you can tell me that AJ is coming from a space of love, or really caring about you, and that he is not coming from a place of fear, then obviously I'm not hearing in him what you are hearing.
PS - I wonder how much of the appetite for AJ's ranting feeds an underlying need to be right (both for him and the listener), or feeds the victim mentality, or feeds the need for some association, rather than actually being constructive to a higher sense of self empowerment.
