Hi guys :) My name is Chris, I'm new to the forums, not necessarily new to Ron Paul. I'm a High School student and a Junior in New York. Have always been somewhat interested in politics, mostly because my dad always has been and so, being young and impressionable, I naturally followed his ideologies (which is mostly a mainstream neo-conservative, anybody-but-Obama one). My first run-in with the liberty movement was when I was about 10 years old, going to a Rangers game in Manhattan with my father. We stopped for some reason near a public phone, one that donned an anti-Patriot Act sticker warning of phone-tapping. I asked my dad what it was, he muttered something about "Liberals" and tore the sticker off.

As I began to mature, I started to get very turned off by the anti-liberty, uber-religious, pro-war, and bigoted part of the Republican party (especially considering that I'm "gay").

It was about July 2011 that I first took serious note of Dr. Paul. The message of liberty planted its seed in my mind via YouTube, stumbling across a Ron Paul video, the content of which I can only describe as inspirational and infectious. And the rest is history :).

I did post a video to YouTube basically recapping all of this (it was a video response to some guy undecided voter criticizing the Perry "Strong" ad). Should you decide to watch, forgive the audio delay, not sure what happened :confused:

Welcome aboard! Too young to vote but it is the youth's enthusiasm that gives Dr. Paul energy to fight the good fight against tyranny and oppression!
