Ah, I would love to be a Precinct Leader for Dr. Paul again. I have never felt so alive in my life. The countless hours of campaigning for him,
standing in the cold rain, making the calls, and meeting all the people. It was a blast!
Then to watch in dismay as state after state ignored him. And the MSM blanked him out. Yet he won every poll online, had the majority of the support
from the military. And he easily made all the other candidates look ignorant and uneducated.
I would love to see him as our President. As Michelle Obama said, "For the first time in my adult lifetime, I'm really proud of my country....... I
think people are hungry for change."
It was much the same for me. I never felt so alive in my life. To actually be a part of something I could believe in and approach with passion.
Things like this are rare, I guess that's why we have so much energy saved up when they come across our path. But really I just wanted to thank you
for your efforts. It really is heartbreaking to have been a part of it and to look back, but I guess that's life. You talk about standing in the
cold rain, and there was probably nowhere else you'd rather be. Obama supporters, God bless them (and I only bring them up because they had passion
too) they meant well but should have known better, not sure if many of them would be out in the cold rain of Wisconsin or Iowa, Massachussets holding
up their signs.

The Libertarian candidate was Bobb Barr. He voted for the Patriot act. That's why I did not vote Libertarian for the first time in many years. Bob
Barr is no Libertarian.
It's been a few years but I remember his explanation for that. The patriot act was meant to be used to fight terrorism. It was not a bad idea if
the people in power do not abuse it. And I'm pretty sure members of congress (including him) made a statement that they would go along if the
executive branches and the departments made a statement of confidence along those lines. Put into practice, the patriot act did not hold true to that
promise, our leaders lied to get a bill passed, then abused it and their power.
One of Bob Barr's major items in his campaign was to end the patriot act. He hates the police state, government sanctioned airport security, he sees
right through it. He is also strong for the 2nd amendment.

Don't get this wrong...
I like Ron Paul's methods, his truthfulness, and his intelligence.
His current (and publicly displayed, mind you) philosophy is right on the mark with the American Peoples. If indeed the years that Ron Paul has been
trumpeting his voice against all that is destroying America has been done in good faith and intent, I am happy he got the nomination..
I however sense something more sinister at foot here.
Obama came onto the scene with his crafty words, all filled with apparent lies spoken between his teeth while making promises of Change to the
American People. So far his record shows that all he is doing is continuing where Bush left off, - refusing to repeal unconstitutional Laws he said
he'd repreal, failing to end the illegal war in Afghanistan and Iraq, but instead sending more troops over there and even sabre rattling against
Iran, and Yemen, and even going heads up with Russia and China.
I don't trust any politician. period.
So far on this thread I've read post after post of how Ron Paul will be THE ONE....
He'll do this, he'll do that, he's for the people...
LOL... WHAT IF.....
All these years Ron Paul has been nothing more than the up and coming front man for the PTB, having actually been told that he needed to publicly
denounce the actions and legislations being enacted by the American Government, in effect distancing himself - supposedly - from the politicians on
Capitol hill, and in effect becoming the "salvation" for America the American People whole-heartedly believe in.
He is in essence that right now...
WHAT IF.... (yep, here it comes... lol)
America votes Ron Paul in and the current legislation in place now to create the American Dictatorship is then snapped into action - suddenly there's
a lock down in America - with Ron Paul establishing the American Charter for U.N. Governance over this country, initiates the North American Union,
and dumps the Dollar for a currency more in tune with the program - the Amero - which the Federal Reserve already has manufactured and secretly
delivered to Banks across America and are what to expect when you make your next physical cash withdrawal.
all this - being told to us then by our savior Ron Paul - that this was the only way to save America - a 'bloodless' change of hands in Government -
and that we should give it a chance to succeed.
What will go through your minds at that point people?
After all - this is RON PAUL who's doing this, right? He's fair, He's for the people....
Mark this post, it very well may indeed be true. =)
That is so horribly unlikely. Ron Paul would vote no to the Amero period. He would rather die than do that, even on live television. He'd rather
croak where he stood, than sign the Amero into law. He's only spent 20 years + on his beliefs and views, stood for them. He will go down as a moral
hero, he would happily die for his principles.
What would go through my mind if it did happen that way? I guess I'd give up any trust in politicians. More likely than your theory even, would be
for him to get assassinated or set up, framed. I'm sure if something happened it would happen with dodgy, sketchy details given to the public for
conspiracy theorist to ponder over for decades.
Anyone that bothers to explain their views and not rely on buzz words and buzz phrases, is someone I'm willing to listen to. So Ron Paul, and as
Barr has been brought up, I admire Bob Barr as well - he is excellent at explaining constitutional matters and his views.
