Here are some thoughts to ponder for those of you who cannot accept Naomi Wolf's support:
1. If you got rounded up and sent to a prison camp for "un American activities," and found that your cell mate was none other than Ms. Wolf herself, but she had a plan to escape, and she had help on the outside from a band of "liberals," would you refuse her help?
Would you stop to ask who she voted for and why?
Would the fact that she voted for Clinton / Gore / Obama be a "deal breaker?"
Would you say, no thanks, I'll just wait. I just can't accept help from Democrat?
2. If anyone is in danger of being placed on the list of "un American Activities," it is her for her, for writing the excellent book, The End of America
She's already on the airport harassment list. She gets the SSSS on her boarding pass every time she flies. When they start rounding people up, she'll be one of the first to go. If you've read the book, you understand why. Why do you think she's so scared?
3. We're all entitled to mistakes. How long are you going to hold someone's vote against them? Ron Paul voted for George Bush in 2000.
4. Do you agree or disagree with her statement, I do hope we can move past the idea that we have to vote in lockstep or reach identical policy conclusions in order to listen to one another and learn from each other constructively, which is what I feel our Founders would wish us to do.?
5. If none of the above makes any sense to you, then I invite you to consider that the elite's divide and conquer strategy has won. The American people are divided. Party differences and presidential votes trump any shared values. The elites win, you're just a pawn, squabbling because someone is not just like you. Meanwhile they take our country. Congratulations! You win! You get to be right. In your own mind.
But they get our country due to your stupidity.
I have a "liberal" friend here in Boston. (Gasp! Yes, I have friends who are democrats.) He was outraged by the recent bailout. Since he lives in my district, I invited him to vote for my friend John Cunningham, who is running for Congress against 32 year incumbent Ed Markey.
In spite of the fact that he thinks Markey is a deadbeat who's done very little good, he told me, "I just can't bring myself to vote for a Republican." My friend voted early, by absentee. Rather than voting for Cunningham, he wrote in "Mickey Mouse" instead. This is a true story.
Stupid, sad, pathetic, and true.
6. If you are one of the stupid ones from #5 who sees the world from the false left / right / democrat / republican paradigm that is spoon fed to us daily, how do you think you're going to win this fight if your litmus test is Ron Paul?
The Ron Paul revolution was big, but the operative word here is was. What's the Revolution up to now? We've split off into 1000 different directions. Lots of people are back to the couch. And yeah, it was big, but we need bigger numbers than what we had if we are going to take our country back.
My question, for those who still don't understand is this:
7) What are you so afraid of? I would suggest that if you have such fear and suspicion for someone like Naomi Wolf, then personally you are not free.
If you are not personally free, then how can you possibly spread something you do not have? Freedom brings us together, it does not divide us.
