Not that I'm advocating violence (though I think we could all agree the world would not be amiss if a few of the big blue-blood corporate industrialists dropped dead).

I've been a Paultard since the day my boyfriend and I stumbled across his interview in Rolling Stone Magazine, though we were suspicious at first, after there was no way that Politician of all people could be so honest and sensible and genuinely concerned for the rights of every individual american. You can imagine our surprise when no amount of digging showed otherwise. Ron Paul is a natural leader. As my boyfriend said "Ron Paul is this Revolution's Thomas Jefferson." Now we just need to find ourselves a Washington, a Franklin and some others for this thing to really start to take off.

In any case we were very enthusiastic about the campaign, and followed it as best we could online, watching all of the debates. However neither of us watched television, so we were unaware at first just how much the media has been smothering this man. It did not become fully apparent until the January 30, 2008 CNN Debate in Simi Valley, California. We'd heard that the moneybombs only amounted to 30 second blurbs, but at this debate, 75% of the group outside the Reagen Library was Paul Supporters, About 20% was evenly divided amongst the closely huddled hucksters and Romnites, then a few Obamites and some undeclared socialists.

CNN, did a Before the Debate section, and said that there were only three candidates, McCain (who you'll note had no supporters showing in the crowd), Romney, and Huckabee. Ron Paul was NEVER mentioned and he was IN the debate. The debate focused on Mitt Romney and John McCain "yuh huh, nuh uh"-ing each other, with Huckabee compaining he didn't have any time to talk. Ron Paul got maybe three minutes to talk and was frequently cut off and ignored. Needless to say, I was infuriated.

It's not just a whack-job conspiracy theory, there is substantial opposition to this movement, and I find myself extremely suspicious of the fate of the many provisional ballots that were cast in favor of Ron Paul. I find it hard to believe that with how much support Ron Paul has gained that he only made it to ten percent of the vote in most states.

In any case, this campaign isn't even really about Ron Paul, this is about the American people wanting their Constitutional Freedom back. Obama can go on all he wants about his motto of change, but I heard those words from Ron Paul first, with details of just how that change should be enacted. All Obama ever does is point out what he did right and Hillary did wrong. I'm tired of all these bullshit candidates that don't even try to understand what the reason for their position is, all they want is the power.

“During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act”
~ George Orwell

A well known one, but fitting non the less. Good post. :)

You can be a Revolutionary. One of the best ways is to wake people up. And one of the best ways to do that is Ron Paul's Manifesto. :) Much like Paine's Common Sense, its going to set this country on fire - and lay the ground work for the Revolution.

Get spreading :D

All patriots are traitors in the beginning. By nature patriotism is traitorous. Our founding fathers never wanted us to embrace government power. They warned us to distrust it, fight it, betray it. Just be faithful to our Constitution and keep the revolutionary spirit alive. History will exonerate us, not our neighbors. History ALWAYS exonerates the winner.

All politicians are compressed into 30 seconds in the soundbite dominated news entertainment industry. In that respect, all politicians are akin to WWE superstars so get out your best catchphrase because McMahon errr Murdoch will be watching the applause meter at all times. You'll indeed smell what the cons are cooking.

So my fellow traitor I welcome you. I am a recovering neo-con. There are some brilliant minds here whom you can learn a great deal from.

In a paper sabre battle, I'll take the Constitution. Who wants to wield the Communist Manifesto?

That would be Obama.

someone close to me.I know what comes after this world but I still miss hearing the 1's that have gone already.Can you put your little brother or sister in the ground when they take up the cause?
Once it starts, there is no turning back. Be very careful what you ask for. I do not rule this out as a last possible option action to restore Our Constitution, but I don't want it to go down like that.

Inspiring words. Truly.

I want to be a Revolutionary

This being a libertarian movement, you sure don't need my permission. :D If you call yourself a revolutionary in this day and age (and stand and deliver, of course), then I will call you a patriot. Welcome to the forum!
