    My older cousin, not.your.average.joe , was diagnosed with leukemia in early January 2016. After several weeks of chemo in the hospital, he passed away. Over the past eight years, he has had a profound impact on my life and the way I think. He introduced Ron Paul to me back in 2012, and since then I've tried my best to educate myself and incorporate the principles of liberty to my life.

    Without not.your.average.joe here to guide me, I decided to join Ron Paul Forums to learn from other people of a like mind. Thanks a lot to Bryan from RPF staff for making it possible for me to continue this account, as it holds sentimental value.

    Note: I'm probably a lot younger than most of the people on this forum.

    Welcome, sorry to hear about your cousin.
    “I don’t think that there will be any curtailing of Donald Trump as president,” he said. "He controls the media, he controls the sentiment [and] he controls everybody. He’s the one who will resort to executive orders more so than [President] Obama ever used them." - Ron Paul

    Welcome, Friend. I am sorry about your cousin. But the fact that he passed the torch of liberty to you and you decided to run with it speaks very highly of you both. I hope you stick around, don't let the old curmudgeons scare you off.

    Welcome.... you are most welcome.

    We have some young people here as well as old. I'm 36 and I consider myself old lol.

    Small conversations can ripple through time and have profound impacts on our lives and, subsequently, the lives of others.

    Good to hear from you, joe. Sorry to hear about your cousin.

    Yes, I think individuals can make a much bigger impact than many often realize. Everyone has a purpose on this earth. You can make an impact on other people. Never let it be said that one person can't make a difference in somebody's life. I know that might sound cliched, but I don't mean it that way. I have see countless examples. Everyone has a calling. Liberty can be that calling or even part of a calling.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Welcome, and thanks for memorializing your cousin in so many ways.
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    I'm so sorry for your loss but I'm sure your cousin would be proud that you are memorializing him this way. What a wonderful gesture! Welcome, not.your.average.joe. 2.0.
