This Is Very Troubling - Please Think About ThisSubmitted by ecard71 on Sun, 02/12/2012 - 22:13
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)
