*we* (spouse and I and family) were struggling to feed ourselves when we donated to Ron Paul--
don't regret it; it sounds as though I do--
but there is a limit; a person has to view priorities.
We're walking the walk, not just talking the talk.
We refuse government medical plans--
most of our 'friends', even those with MUCH more money, who are retired or semi-retired (we work, but we get a pension, too, because of our ages)--
are on Medi--*whatever*--
we are not--
we qualify for food stamps; we don't take them--
I could give money to hear this monthly and we could skip a meal--
have decided not to go there--
if I sound a little bitter, well, maybe I am--
we've worked hard to get to this level of poverty--
it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--
