This Is Very Troubling - Please Think About This

My fellow Americans, we all claim we feel very strongly for Ron Paul. It would sure seem that way judging from all the enthusiasm at the rallies and sign bombs. However something has been worrying me since Florida, and frankly, starting to PISS ME OFF about some supporters. I spend a HUGE chunk of my time reading the comment sections in the articles because I’d rather get the opinions of many, than just one, usually biased reporter. I am starting to see many more people making statements such as, "that's it, I give up", and "we just can't win". Now listen, I can understand disappointment, after all we are human. But what I CAN'T understand is how easily these people seem to give up on a cause! As if the election results weren't bad enough, all this negativity and talk about quitting just adds to the disappointment and probably also encourages people who are having second thoughts about supporting Dr. Paul. Was it that these people just jumped on the Ron Paul bandwagon because it was the cool thing to do? Possibly, but I don’t think so. Are those comments planted by the GOP to discourage us? Possibly, but I don’t think so either (though it may occur). They’re reacting like it’s a sinking ship and they’re the first ones bailing. This is a prime example of flip-flopping (might as well join Romney) when things don’t seem to be going your way. Personally, I wish Ron Paul would take the gloves off during the debates since I feel he is intellectually superior to the other candidates and would make them look like fools. But Dr. Paul is a smart man and I will give him the benefit of the doubt that he knows what he is doing. Who knows, maybe he is saving the aggression for Obama? But, I’m just really surprised that people who are for Liberty would just roll over so easily. No wonder this country is in the shape it’s in. Ron Paul has been unfairly treated in the media, during the debates, and continually ridiculed and mocked. He’s been dealing with this sort of treatment for 30 freakin’ years, and some people can’t hold on for a few weeks??? You people are letting the GOP, and their dirty tactics win. Are you going to let them??? I really hope your reply is a “HELL NO!”

FACT: EVERY SINGLE DAY, the message is spreading and there are countless new Ronverts. And just like you and I, those new Ronverts are contagious and they in turn convert more voters into Ron Paul voters.

FACT: I’ve also been watching a HUGE, HUGE climb in Ron Paul Youtube videos watched. This tells me that people are curious and they are starting to inform themselves and learn about Dr. Paul. These videos that only a month or two ago were in the low hundreds are now in the tens of thousands and the Ron Paul ads are in the Hundred Thousand numbers! They’ll be in the millions within the next month or two mark my words.

FACT: Remember, this is ONLY the beginning. I understand that it may not seem that way to those of us who have stood by and supported Dr. Paul for a “while” now. Whether you have supported him for years or months is irrelevant. The fact is most people are just now starting to hear about Ron Paul (much less learn about him – even though once they do, they come around). We have a LONGGG road ahead. There are MILLIONS of people out there who DO NOT follow politics and who don’t have a clue who is running for the GOP candidate, and many couldn’t care less. Many ONLY vote in the November Presidential election. Hell, there are people out there who won’t even know who is running against Obama until October! Also, you can’t forget the fact that there are countless people who do not pay attention to the Republican party because it’s strictly a dirty word to them and they refuse to even associate themselves with the GOP. We need to reach these people, and once they learn about Dr. Paul, they’ll vote for him regardless of party, as we all have witnessed in the past. Remember this is a revolution! We are a HUGE threat to both the GOP and the Democrats, and they are not going to make this easy. STAY THE COURSE!

FACT: Remember, we are fighting BIG money and power. Regardless of what you may have heard in the “Romney backed news media”, we are doing quite well in acquiring delegates. So even if we come in dead last in the elections, it’s the delegates that matter. YOU need to step up and try to become a delegate. Remember, Ron Paul needs you and your country needs you. We can do this! Be a part of this historic election by becoming a delegate.

FACT: It is still VERY early in the race, but even if we lose this GOP nomination, Ron Paul hasn’t ruled out a third party run. If it’s true that he is running to save the country and represent the people, then I foresee him giving a big middle finger to the GOP and running third party. Regardless, we as Ron Paul supporters, instead of being treated fairly and with respect like all of the other candidates’ supporters, we have been treated like shit from the GOP. Sorry, but there’s no other way to say it. Dr. Paul deserved better treatment and so did we. Do they deserve our support now? They sure didn’t earn it. I personally will vote FOR NO ONE BUT RON PAUL even if that means writing him in.

We need to send the GOP a STRONG message letting them know that none of their previous tactics to discourage, dissuade, and divide us has worked. How you ask? We need to make this “NO ONE BUT PAUL” Money Bomb on Tuesday, a huge success. Show them how pissed off you are. BE HEARD and let the GOP know IT'S RON PAUL OR NOBODY, EVEN IF HE DECIDES TO RUN THIRD PARTY.

I hope these words have encouraged at least some of you who have felt discouraged from the recent election results. Remember, this is only the beginning. Remember, you are not alone. Do not believe the lies and do not get discouraged. This is what the GOP wants! This is a fight worth fighting and together we will win. United we stand, divided we fall. “Just remember, the Revolution is only beginning.” –Ron Paul (February 11, 2012)

Great post. It's just as much

Great post.

It's just as much about spreading the message as winning the election. Ron Paul has already done way better than anyone would have hoped for a year ago. To me it's just exciting to see that someone, somewhere in the world has got some brains!

I've woken up several people, including former hardcore socialists using Ron Paul videos. Couldn't have done that without him. Hell, I've woken up myself and Ron Paul has kept me awake so I will never fall asleep again!

I'm from Sweden so I can't affect the outcome of your election. But this is a global revolution.
Don't be discouraged even if Ron Paul is not winning (not that he's doing bad). More and more people are waking up to freedom every single day, all over the world.

I keep saying, Ron Paul blew

I keep saying, Ron Paul blew through my state, and suddenly the leader of the Republican Party is a Paul supporter.

The leader of the GOP is more anti war than the leader of the Democrats!

The objectives of this campaign ARE being accomplished.

We'll see

So we complain and argue about the campaign, about Ron Paul, about Romnoid and Grinch and Santorum? "I give up", "I quit...this is ridiculous"....I've said it many times per day. Most of the comments are based on what we read on the web and what we hear from others which typically only have a portion of "fact" in them. We were told we'd do very well in NV...which turned into a disappointment. But what can you expect from a state run by the mafia that has whore houses and gambling and 80% of the land area is either a dumping ground for bio-chem weapons or nuclear test holes- honesty and integrity?

In Maine only 6,000 voters showed up? But we're told we'll win Maine after some no name county decides to venture out into the cold...and RP thinks we'll win all the candidates up there- good I hope so. Santorum won Iowa...after many weeks. Maybe it'll be the same with us in Maine?

While we're on the pep-talk....who'd you vote for no 2008?

Great post. I for one, will

Great post.
I for one, will NEVER GIVE UP !

Brokered Convention

The convention will be brokered … If Dr. Paul is not the nominee, I do not think he will request a quid pro quo position for himself or anyone else. If Romney is the candidate … he will loose to Obama. The Dr. Pauls’ will not want to be any part of it. It will lesson their credibility for the fight we will have in 2016 and our ongoing fight to get legislation passed (like we did for HR 1207). Dr. Ron Paul will be able to go out and have fun lecturing (and will get paid for it!). The question will be, what legislation can we help him lobby for that would change the world? How about we get rid of tax on real money, and to get competing currency? If that happens, what about Dr. Paul as CEO of the “Liberty Currency”. (Now that is an IPO I would love to invest in). The point is, Dr. Paul is not going away … I don’t think he will take a political position for power … he will be better spreading the message working within our somewhat Free Market.

Many people are NOT cut out for politics.

Like me. I do the best I can. Part of it is giving myself permission to "quit" about 20 times a day.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

ain't that the truth!

thanks for this post fishy. I think it is the "yuk" factor.
when you find out that you have done more research on a subject, than the person who represents you has..... it is quite a yucky moment. this has happened to me, well all of us I suppose. many times.

Follow Dr. Ron Paul's lead and go out and have fun.

Ron Paul is not going to run third party. He wouldn't stand a chance since to get on the ballot in each and every state he would have to have started months ago. Dr. Ron Paul is running for the Republican party because it is the best way to get out the message of freedom. His supporters are doing everything to get enough delegates to force a brokered convention. If he gets enough delegates to prevent Romney from winning in the first round then he would be in position to force the GOP to negotiate and get the vice presidential position or even negotiate top billing on the ticket if enough delegates are willing to vote Dr. Ron Paul in the second round of votes.
This isn't just about getting Dr. Paul elected president, this is about taking back the country. And it isn't going to happen with only a Dr. Ron Paul presidency. The people have to be vigilant and get involved in local politics and party politics.

Excellent post

You're so right about millions not following politics.

For example, there are 200,000 registered Republicans in Maine, yet under 6,000 went to the caucuses. Think about that.

It is heavy work waking sheeple up, and we are making a HUGE difference. If we keep at it, all our work will bear fruit at a faster rate.

Thanks for the pep talk!

VERY much appreciated

Nothing has changed!

Ron Paul continues to do well with 1% of Romney's resources-- .0001% of the Neo-con press bias of Santorum, Romney and Gingrich...

But!

Ron Paul supporters are committed, smarter and determined not to fail.

Ron Paul is doing better than ever before everywhere including Nevada where the beauty contest was rigged but he walked away with a ton of delegates!

its more than an election

its a new party

You can't stop the R3volution.

The cat is out of the bag...

I joined 3 months ago. My office manager this AM texted me that she is now sold on Ron Paul. My best friend is sold. My cousin is sold. My nephew is sold.

Those are all Republicans.

Now I am talking to Democrat after Democrat who voted for hope and change and are now disillusioned with Obama and ALL that I talk to either say they are voting for Paul or would consider voting for Paul.

Its like the blinders come off and BAM people get it!

Myself included.

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

NEVER QUIT!!!

Fight to the last! We are doing MUCH better than we think. We could do even better if we'd stop trying to convert Obama supporters and OWS bums and start working on people who are going to actually vote in the Republican primaries.

Agree--- the Revolution is building and will face many hurdles..

I am in this to protect our liberties. I will vote for Ron Paul regardless. Thanks for the post!

This is exactly what TPTB

want us to do. Get frustrated, give up and just go away. I, for one, won't give them the satisfaction. Not when I know I'm right about Ron Paul being the best choice for president. 2008 was tough but it just made me stronger in my convictions.
