After being active in the Ron Paul Loveolution in 2008 and watching the slow betrayal and manipulation of the campaign in the 2012 race, I found that despite knowing the fruitlessness of this political endeavor, I had this slow simmering anger inside that I couldn’t explain. I knew years ago that what was unfolding was going to be the outcome. For I have long since lost any hope that we could “Vote” ourselves free, and had come to the conclusion that the system was hopelessly lost from the people.
It is my, and many others I know and call friends, belief that any sullying of yourself by participation in the process is just to show how faulted it is. So I asked myself, “why am I angry”? You saw this coming. You knew that, after the debates, any effort was a waste of time and resources, and knew the depth of disappointment the Paul supporters were going to feel after they realized they were not going to be able to affect any real change thru the political process. So why are you angry? It wasn’t an “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it any more” angry. Just this deep level of contempt and saddened anger.
And then it came to me. While driving in traffic the other day, I was cut off by this other car. The person driving had made eye contact with me, and looked me straight in the eye and without a word, conveyed the message “they were going to screw me over” and endanger me and my children’s lives without a care or conscience, and there wasn’t a thing I could do about it. And there was that feeling, and I then realized what it was. The level of “rudeness and lack of conscience”, this evil intent with malice, is what I held in contempt.
· They’re stealing delegations so Dr. Paul can’t be placed in nomination
· They tried to stop Paul Festival by blocking the available venues
· They’re stacking rules committees so they can control the dialogue
· Right down to the lack of any speaking spot for Dr. Paul at the convention
· Are you tired of them turning their back on you yet?
So what do you, as a Freedom supporter and Ron Paul delegate, do?
They’re ready for you! They’re putting high-priced and powerful people in place as we speak to control the show and Wag the Dog. You have seen the reports of Homeland Security buying up riot gear to control the unruly. That’s anyone that will muck up their show… That’s YOU. Anything you do or want to do is planned for. Trust me - they have already shown their colors and will stop at nothing to quiet you.
So how do you do battle with someone that is ready for anything you might do? Someone once told me that the best way of fighting these kinds of people is to find a completely perpendicular way of approaching the issues at hand. So what should you as a Delegate do when the Party has turned its back on you?
“You do nothing”
If you’re bound to only vote for Mitt on the first round of voting, then just don’t vote.
And if you’re tired of the GOP turning its back on you, then return the favor.
Shun those that would rob you of what you and the other volunteers worked so hard for. Shun the rule changers. Shun those that steal delegations to quiet the message of Freedom.
Let them figure out how spin the story of Mr. Romney’s acceptance speech where half the convention floor stands in silent discommendation with their backs turned. Let the Establishment know that you will not stand idly by and let Freedom lovers be stabbed in the back.
Just show them yours.
