View Full Version : The Revolution: Some thoughts on Day One

Some thoughts on the rebirth of this campaign:

Our core beliefs regarding executive power dictate that one man should not have absolute sway over the hearts and minds of man. Political sensitivities aside, anyone elected into the presidency with a respect for the constitution would never be able to create the change we want to see in America. It has taken decades of erosion that will need to be restored piece by piece. The Presidential campaign has been a rallying point for change, but that time has passed. It would have been nice to use the Office of the presidency as a platform for preaching liberty once again, but with the looming economic crisis perhaps it is best not to have our man at the helm to take the blame. The campaign has served us well, giving us a singular message, a singular goal, and motivated us with the knowledge that we can get involved.

Another core belief is that liberty and freedom are the most powerful positive political forces. During the campaign we were limited to the rules of the Federal Elections Committee. Our friends in other nations could lend ideas, but not directly assist us. Coordination was done at the risk of political wrath, as if the free association of people was something to be feared. It appears that in striking us down, we have been made more powerful than they can possibly imagine. The friends, partners, movers and shakers in this movement are still here- only now we are limited only be our ambition, creativity, and political zeal. Brothers and Sisters we have these in spades. Certainly no Army can stop and Idea whose time has come.

The time has come for this idea. The fabled march on Washington that many believe is necessary for change is occurring, not with pitchforks and torches, but with liberty minded candidates. The politically blind are finally beginning to see. Thanks to the weakness of the dollar and the futility of interventionist wars, they are open to new ideas. We must keep our ideas at the forefront, and thats what I believe this campaign will be focused on.

We are not preparing for D-Day, Bunker Hill, or any such glorious battle. We are preparing for the intricate minefield of paperwork, local elections, and partisan politics. Keep in mind we were not the first to fight these tyrants in a teapot before. From the Declaration of Independence: “He [King George III] has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures. “ Fatiguing them into compliance- That is the true power of our government- Forcing us into fatigued consent. If you will indulge a verse from Galatians, “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Through education, political activity, book clubs, parades, public speaking, debates and anything else the market for liberty creates- we will unshackle our fellow citizens and ask them to stand with us.

The establishment's motivation comes from fear of losing power, our motivation comes from a love liberty, freedom, justice, and equality under the law. Against such forces who can stand?

I am excited to be a part of this change, and look forward to working with you all.
