You know, I told you I was removing myself from the conversation because I was just being bitter and even apologized. You don't know me. You have no
idea what I do to help spread a peaceful revolutionary mindset all over the country. You have no idea what I do with my own two hands to get people to
involve themselves in democracy and think about what companies they support. I do a hell of a lot more than most people I know, and I have been for
years, and my friends are finally starting to care.
Saying that being jaded by politics is allowing myself to get steamrolled, or implying that I just don't care because I refuse to give money to yet
another politician who promises the world is just nonsense.
If he cares so much about ending the Drug War, why are drug laws in Texas some of the harshest in the country? Do you honestly believe he could follow
through with all this radical change if he were to be elected? Congress needs to be cleaned out, and not only that, but peoples mindset in this
country needs to change. I used to fool myself by believing everyone secretly wanted a revolution. This is not true.
A lot of people want more strict gun laws (not me, and a good friend of mine was murdered with a gun about 7 months ago in his own home)
A lot of people want to keep drugs illegal.
A lot of people want to "win" the wars in the Middle East.
A lot of people completely disagree with Paul, and are afraid of the change he would try to bring. Then again, a lot of people said the same about
Obama, and we all know how that turned out. I'm just saying, I'm glad you all are excited to be involved in the democratic process. Just make sure
you hld him to everything he says if you elect him. I don't trust the guy, simply because he's a career politician, and I don't see him holding any
weight as POTUS, but that's just me.
