ron paul!

we went to the ron paul rally in boise yesterday with the kiddos.  and they came prepared.  anyways, he’s such a nice man.  how many politicians can you say that about?  there was a slight hang up with the sound system and during the resulting silence someone in the crowd of two thousand yelled, “we love you ron paul!”  and it’s true.  the whole place flipped out.  the man’s freakin’ adorable.

i don’t care much about politics.  in fact, i’d rather not.  frankly.  but when someone’s crazy grandpa takes the stage in his flannel shirt and starts raging about freedom, and the erosion of liberty through the natural course of power, it makes you want to jump up and holler, “finally!”  then when you factor in the actuality of anyone  paying attention to such an individual, you can only assume it is all through the grace of god.  take it or leave it america.

how some people still have the nerve to complain about ron paul is what gets me.  seriously?  do you want to hold out another 4 years and then see if there are any other visionary revolutionaries lurking about ready to buck the system?  any other men who have been cultivating the same consistent message of liberty for the last 40 years, with the character to back it up, and the backbone to do something about it?  because you know, it’s my general impression that the political establishment is chock full of those sorts of characters.  right?  anyways, if i catch any one of you casting your emasculated, pragmatic vote for either of those milksops pandering around right now, i will be less than impressed.  you can’t solve a problem if your best solution is to become part of it.  take a broad look over the course of history, and tell me if there is anything more precious than the liberties we are currently frittering away through our complacency, nearsightedness, and the willingness to choose the lesser of two evils.  we can, and should, have a long list of things to expect out of our presidential candidate.  that’s good, i’m glad you have standards.  but if such a man doesn’t first plant his feet where dr. paul has his dug in right now, none of it amounts to anything.  and as far as i can see, ron paul is the only man bothering to stand at all.  so stand with him.  “any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security (or a little morality?) will deserve neither and lose both.”  don’t get me wrong, i’m a “have my cake and eat it too” kinda girl.  i’m just savvy enough to realize that there’s no having, and there’s no eating, if there’s no cake.

    Love it! It is so obvious to me what scum bags the other candidates are, I’m confused why not everybody does. If I hear another argument about how Newt’s marriage relationships will have no bearing on how his presidency will be run I will puke. Integrity is integrity, people. You either have it or you don’t. Also, shocked at how the media can still ignore Ron Paul when he is so obviously awesome.

    <3Princesses for Ron Paul! ❤
