I went from spending the past few days with patriots the likes of Adam Kotesh, Jesse Ventura, Shana Kluck, the Simmions family from my home state of TN, Barry Goldwater Jr, Anyone with the last name Paul and especially Dr. Paul.

Then today I get back to work and I have someone ask me if the reason I went to St Paul was to try and get to see John Mccain. I told them no and told them why I was there, we actually had a good discussion about Ron Paul and I think we will have many more, and that's a good thing.

I guess the thing that's getting to me is I got the chance to see what liberty looked like for the past few days, and that's what I'm SUPPOSED to be defending as a military member, and then it all comes crashing down today with this thing at work and the pitiful excuses that the RNC has used to keep even our few votes from counting. I love my job - but I almost feel like a traitor just going to work.

There's not really a point to this - I just needed to let this out, keeping it in was killing me.

Thanks guys for your kind words. I think for me at least part of this process is a deep sorrow at what our country has become. I just need to insure that I channel said sorrow into motivation to do something relevant to CHANGE things.

You are too smart for the military. How did you get suckered into it?

I feel the same way sometimes. Being a total Internet hikikomori hanging out on like-minded forums, dealing with real life is a major downer. Maybe that's why some pro-liberty people are moving to common locations, like the Free State Project?

Long story that I don't feel like going into - I do enjoy my job, its a lot of fun. The "you cannot's" are kinda getting to me though. For example I can't run for any party positions OR be active in the republican party while I'm in - kinda handcuffing me from some things I'd like to be doing.

Don't make such statements, I almost joined the military as a way to go to college. When there's no money, you make some desperate decisions.

Just because someone was in the military does not mean you're stupid, it also does not make you a sheep. I almost got "suckered in" because I very few other options. I was fortunate.

I know just how you feel. Get involved locally. Talk to people. It really helps when you see the light come on in someone's eyes. That moment when you know they are thinking, "FINALLY" something I can believe in.

Hey..just remember...the Zionist/communist news media shut Dr Paul down before AMERICA had the opportunity to listen to his words. They HATE the US CONSTITUTION, they hate Libertarian minded people and Liberty itself. This will be a long slow process...but nothing worthwhile is ever easy. HANG IN THERE! Tones
