Another Endorsement of Ron Paul
Posted by wordforit on February 4, 2008
When politically astute individuals affirm Dr. Ron Paul’s integrity and sound message, which is spoken without magniloquence, it speaks to character. The only true patriot and only candidate worthy of being POTUS. Ron Paul.
Here, we have another eloquently stated endorsement. (Even when it digs at those caught in the crossfire. ;-)

Joining the Revolution–An Endorsement of Ron Paul
. . .Rescuing me from despair is Ron Paul. Here is a man who makes me believe that the Grand Old Party of Barry Goldwater, Ronald Reagan, and William F. Buckley might have a second life. Here is a man from Texas, with strong libertarian and conservative values, who has laid out a foreign policy that would put America first. Unlike the rest of them, if Ron Paul ever stood on the steps of the Capitol and swore to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution, he’d actually mean it. . .
. . .Much can be learned about a candidate from the people he attracts. Every neocon hack looking for a promotion backed Giuliani early; and the usual collection of Hollywood airheads, ethno-hustlers, and media gatekeepers have clicked their heels behind the Democrats. Paul, on the other hand, has attracted an enormous amount of supporters from all walks of life, many of whom had hitherto shown the good taste to stay out of politics. Paul gets his votes from the real Americans of the heartland and the most dynamic men of industry and the sciences-[. . .]. It seems that a Paul supporter from outside the beltway came up with the idea for his fundraising blitzes, and a political novice from Google led the troops in New Hampshire. They’re all united in an effort to form a movement based on liberty, not nation-building financed with money we don’t have. . . Continue

[The following comment is so Apropos!~WfI]
Commenter J Suarez:
As to today’s media, the movie NETWORK in 1976 spoke a lot of truths that apply today to FOX, CNN, and the rest of the media conglomerate in the voice of one of its character’s Howard Beale:
“You people and sixty-two million other Ameicans are listening to me right now. Because less than three percent of you people read books. Because less than fifteen percent of you read newspapers. Because the only truth you know is what you get over this tube. Right now, there is a whole, an entire generation that never knew anything that didn’t come out of this tube. This tube is the gospel, the ultimate revelation. This tube can make or break Presidents, Popes, Prime Ministers. . . .”
He goes on in his monologue to say:
“We deal in illusions, man. None of it is true! But you people sit there day after day, night after night, all ages, colors, creeds – we’re all you know. You’re beginning to believe the illusions we’re spinning here. You’re beginning to think that the tube is reality and that your own lives are unreal. You do whatever the tube tells you. You dress like the tube, you eat like the tube, you raise your children like the tube. You even think like the tube. This is mass madness. You maniacs. In God’s name, you people are the real thing. We are the illusion. So turn off your television sets. Turn them off now. Turn them off right now. Turn them off and leave them off. Turn them off right in the middle of this sentence I am speaking to you now. Turn them off!”
Shut off the noise and get back in touch with Western civilization read the important books – talk to your family and tune out the slop coming out over the airwaves.
And while your at it vote for Ron Paul[. Y]our children, and your grandchildren will thank you for it[.]
