- If you are curious to know, I chose "The Outsider" because it's a great song by Shooter Jennings that strikes close to home for me. It could easily be the anthem for the R3volution...never give up.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the University of Cincinnati. Since that time, I have evolved from a more "liberal" mindset (pushed by the university professors) into a more "conservative" individual, before finally waking up in the middle of the night in 2007 and watching re-runs of the presidential debates. There stood that man who wasn't saying what all the others were saying....felt like a breath of fresh air. I went to Google to find out who this man was...and in doing so, I made a collateral find: Aaron Russo's "America Freedom to Facism."
One documentary, and a few money-bombs later, I found myself chasing the Ron Paul Blimp all over central Florida, joining meetup groups, and posting signs all over the county (many of which disappeared).
This was my awakening. It became obvious that the establishment was (and still is) entrenched, and it will take a sustained effort to save our republic.
I for one refuse to lay down and let freedom and our way of life be stolen. Even if there are those who are oblivious to what is going on around them and look at you like a freak because you are a "Conspiracy Crackpot, Nut-Job, Theorist," I won't change how I feel. I won't be a victim of the establishments most useful tool: Social Pressure.
I will always choose to be "The Outsider"....
