A Poem for the rEVOLution (My first forum post in DP)Submitted by AirborneMLT on Sun, 02/19/2012 - 19:01
My day job is that of a medical laboratory technician,
Serving in the Army thats supposed to defend the Constitution.
I'm here in Germany helping treat the wounded from downrange,
Thinking are needless casualties something we can help change?
I have also deployed to a place in Afghanistan named Kandahar;
Believing in the mission but claiming victory still seems far.
I haven't been perfect but I always worked hard as a soldier;
There were times I almost quit but instead wept on a shoulder.
Last year a good friend kept posting about a man on Facebook.
Trying not to call him crazy a whole lot of energy it took.
Then one day at a friend's party I agreed to take a brochure,
Knowing it will shut him up and later I will toss it for sure.
I eventually read it so as to not feel guilty about lying.
After some more research I realized our liberties are dying.
Slowly and cautiously I was becoming more and more involved,
Telling friends and coworkers national problems can be solved.
I may be overzealous in support without knowing all the facts,
There's always more research but it seems his record's intact.
While in uniform there are rules to how we can be in politics.
But when I'm off duty no one can tell me its wrong to pick.
So I gave a little donation to the most recent Moneybomb.
More satisfying than drinking a few good tasting Jagerbombs.
Thought we will have our first victory for liberty in Maine,
They still gave it to the 'front-runner' that's so insane!
Too bad my tour of service is not over till after elections.
So I can be home campaigning for him to get that position.
Decided I will not let the MSM make me pick between two evils;
I will join the rEVOLution and spread word while being civil.
If you don't already know the name my candidate is Ron Paul
Who has devoted his life to peace, gold, and liberty for all.
