"I'm not going to donate to candidate 'A' because their race isn't as important and I don't think he/she can win."
This statement is so contrary to what this r3VOLution is all about. Yes, we have all heard "You play to win" or something equivalent. Even when George Snuffalupogous asked what "Success" meant for Ron Paul, Dr. Paul responded, "Well, to win." At which he got back, "That's not going to happen."
Dr. Paul has stated many times that he did not want to run for President. It was only the persistance of people around him that eventually persuaded him to. "I was a skeptic" he said. In the end, Ron Paul did not "win" the Presidency. However, he has fueled something far more powerful than one man or one political position could ever hope to contain.
It was the message that brought us all here. It was the message that convinced us to stay. It is the message the drives us today. I fear, though, that some of us are loosing focus of The Message. We have become mildly distracted by the honey of political gains that we are beginning to forget that political gains are not the goal. They are a result.
Our goal is to spread The Message. remember...?

Now some of you may say if all we do is spread The Message, we are destined to fail from political inaction. This argument is a total trap. As if we are all armchair r3VOLutionaries. The Message itself will fuel political action. Ron Paul didn't become a global celebrity because of who he is, but because of The Message he so loudly and bravely proclaimed.
Most of us will not be able to donate to all of the Liberty candidates this election. That is fine. Our poverty, however, should not stop our support and unceasing drive to get them all elected.
Think about it.
