Ron Paul Hits Another One Out Of The Park
With last night's debate, my grandfather hit another one out of the park!
Yes, this is Ron Paul at the Congressional All-Star Game back in the 1970s.
At first, I was not sure how to react to last night's debate because there is a lot of emotion involved for me. (as I am sure for others as well) After taking a few moments to collect my thoughts and stop pacing around my house, I saw the Fox News text message poll. As you know, my grandfather was leading with 30% early on.
When I saw that, it gave me great faith in the American people. We the people were able to see through the smokescreen that Fox News and Rudy Giulani were trying to create. The American people are waking up to realize that our foreign policy does, in fact, affect the way we are looked at and treated by the outside world.
We can no longer afford, in dollars or lives, to continue trying to police the entire world. My grandfather made me understand this very clearly about three years ago when he used the same analagy that he used last night in the debate. He asked me, "What do you think the American people would do if China sailed into the Gulf of Mexico with submarines and naval destroyers and landed at Houston, New Orleans, Mobile, and Tampa Bay to establish military bases? Of course, they are doing this all in the attempt to spread communism to the rest of the world."
I laughed, and said that some pretty drastic measures would be taken by American people to get them out of our land. He asked, "Is this any different from what Middle Easterners feel about the United States in the Persian Gulf?"
I have always known that what my grandfather says makes sense. I am glad that the rest of America is finally getting a chance to understand this as well.
Keep up the good work. Keep fighting, talking, emailing, blogging, and calling the main stream media to persuade them to give him a fair and balanced portrayal.
Put a Ron Paul bumper sticker on your car. Put a Ron Paul poster up around your town. Put a yard sign in your yard or on your property.
Freedom is coming if we keep up the battle.
