So you are saying we should not vote our convictions? That we should follow the lead of those who have proved not to work for us time and time again,
and vote another thief into office? Or that we should all, you included, go out and buy one handgun and one bullet apiece?
I do not understand the defeatism and give up attitude. Is not the American ideal to stand up for what is right no matter the cost? Or do you have
another solution based on principles that I have not thought of.
I can see you as the Nazi's go goosestepping by, thinking you better go along because you are helpless to do the right thing.
In this case, it is not really about getting Ron Paul in office. It is about sending a message that we have had enough. However, if you haven't had
enough why don't you tell the cashier at the grocery store to start charging you double normal prices, and pay double at the gas pump because if we
just resign ourselves to not being able to anything about it that is what we will end up doing anyway.
Jesus Tap-dancing Christ, haven't you ever heard of doing the right thing simply because it is the right thing? It is
that simple, why can't
you nay-sayers understand something as simple as honor?
