How many Ron Paul’s have you met?

How many times have you wanted a candidate, a politician, and a role model, to gain the presidency?  How many times have you wished for a president with values and character that your children could look up to? How many times have you looked at your options for the election and been forced to vote for the lesser evil?  I believe God understands this feeling.  When debating the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah God asked is there not one righteous?  As he searched the people he found a man named Lot.  Though Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed, Lot found favor with the Lord and he & his family were saved from the destruction.  Ron Paul is our Republican ‘Lot’.

Ron Paul is honest.  He stands on values and doesn’t waiver to be a “team player”.  He does what he says he will do and doesn’t compromise his principles to make a deal.  He votes according to a deeper conviction, honoring his position in office, while others vote the way their party tells them to.  He is careful to speak clearly and definitively while taking the time needed for people to get an understanding of context, not just hear a clever sound bite.  He doesn’t take lobbyist money; in fact he doesn’t even take their meetings.  He speaks truthfully whether you (or others) want to hear it or not.  Ron Paul preaches the ‘gospel of freedom’ and protects the constitution even when it gets him booed on national television (remember South Carolina)?  That brings me to my next point.

Ron Paul is humble.  Not with some false humility that almost everyone can see through.  Dr. Paul actually bites his tongue, breathes deeply, and tries to educate the masses against the mocking and ridiculing.  In nearly every debate He has been cut off, cut short, denied time, moderators or other candidates have put words in his mouth and twisted what was said to mean something entirely different.  Did Mr. Paul react with ego and anger?  Did he lash out or whine about what was happening?  No.  Ron Paul has humbly submitted to the moderators according to the agreed upon rules of the debate.  He has tried to keep limits with his time and respected others.  He has shown great humility not only in the debates, but also in interviews with the media, in public appearances, and in his role of office.

Ron Paul is humorous.  Since the joy of the Lord is our strength, Ron Paul is a Samson!  His smile is genuine and warming.  Even the political pundits have commented on this joy.  I heard one say… “He’s having the time of his life!”

Ron Paul is honorable.  Over and over we hear Dr. Paul speak about the oath of office.  Respecting the rule of law and honoring the constitution.  I can’t remember the last politician I heard say anything about honor or upholding an oath… Let alone the oath of office.  Ron Paul reminds us to honor our commitments, honor our principles, and most of all honor each other.  He helps us refocus to reduce aggression towards our fellow’s civil liberties and towards other nations.  Perhaps Jesus said this best when he called us to treat our enemies with kindness and prayer.  In so doing, he taught, we would heap hot coals upon their head.  More so, Jesus hoped that if we would offer love to each other, perhaps we could help draw more souls to his loving redemption and forgiveness; just as he drew us with love, not force.

Ron Paul is hopeful.  Last but not least he is hopeful not for selfish gain or ambition, but hopeful for a resurrection of the constitution and the ideals of the founding father’s.  He is hopeful that the message of freedom is engaging the youth and causing them to get involved to help save the very framework of our nation. He is hopeful that he is awakening America to once again believe in the liberty that founded our great nation.  He is hopeful that he is winning the hearts and minds of the people and encouraging them to once again fight for freedom.

How many people do you know that are honest, humble, humorous, honorable, and hopeful?  How many people do you know with core morals and values?  How many of them are politicians?  How many of those can you say have true character and don’t use their faith for political gain?  How many have you met that can lead in the face of adversity?  And how many people have you met that inspire you and others?

How many have you met like Ron Paul?

  3. If one were to heed the rhetoric being spewed from every orifice, crack, and crevice of the elitist political factions, which lobby by deceit to enslave the votes of every American Citizen. If we all willfully ignore the arrogant contempt for the intelligence of the American people, which is being preached from the pulpit of the morally bankrupt multimillionaire pseudo-journalistic pundits of our National Propaganda News Media.

    Could we possibly entertain any choice but to believe that a man who has held firm to his conviction to the founding principles of our nation, even at the expense of unjust ridicule, unrelenting condemnation, and muckraking defamation, is someone out of touch with the wisdom handed down by our venerable leaders of the past?

    Surely we would find it easy to rationally realize that such a man is truly out of touch with the reality of all that is occurring today. Especially, since this is the same oddball loon who precisely foresaw and forewarned us of what all those aforementioned to this day continue to swear was unforeseeable.

    Are we to perceive his analogies to be anything but those of one standing on the brink of institutional insanity, for daring to ask us to accept the inevitable truth, concerning the impending dangers targeting the future of our children’s tomorrows if we continue along a path absent of true change?

    How dare this experienced political doctor ask the American people to swallow his medicine of unadulterated truth as the only hopeful treatment to save a government that is otherwise tittering on the despotic precipice of terminal?

    How dare he ask us to perform the unthinkable act of standing up on our own two feet to suffer the fight for the future of our children, thus our Nation?

    How dare he tell us we have the ability and/or the right to determine who we shall be allowed to vote for in our elections?

    Is this man so far out of touch with reality that he fails to know that our government dictates to us what our future hopes and dreams must be, as well as those of our children?

    Does he not know that it is our governments’ responsibility to determine how our children must be raised, how we must choose to live, where we must choose to live, how much of our hard earned wages we are allowed to keep, where and to what degree we must seek to be educated, and what we must deem worthy to think and say.

    Does he truly not know that it is the dutiful task of the National Corporate Media to honor the views of the few, so as to dictate to the many what they are allowed to believe or say, and determine who and what shall be allowed to be heard?

    Does he not understand that only the government and the Media have needed wisdom required to determine what is fair and just for us all?

    Does he not comprehend that being a truthful man in a government predicated upon lies, deceit, and the conspiracy of self-servient agendas, makes him an oddball out of step with political reality?

    Why on earth would any sensible American want a highly principled, dedicated pathological truth teller in the White House fighting to preserve and restore our constitutionally protected rights, less they be deemed just as oddly insane as he?

    If we as a people should choose to heed this self-servient inflection of wisdom from those who can only envision the unforeseen in 20/20 hindsight, then we as a people should rejoice; for we will have finally obtained our Founders lofty vision of equality, for we will all stand equal as minions to this folly of fools.

    When will we as a people finally come to terms with these facts, that the only people who would seek to extract wisdom from the words spoken by Governments, and the Media, are those not fond of the truth. That the truth by nature is profoundly simple, until subjected to the divisive nature of perspective, and that the most convincing lies to ever be told, are those pandered as truths shrouded in the deceptive manipulation of the unnatural falsities of Media manufactured perspectives.

    Now as the Republican faction prepares to nullify by secrecy, the votes of many Iowan’s who would dare to vote for any but their chosen few, in conjunction with what we witnessed the Democratic Party stealing the votes for one candidate in favor of another in 2008, the picture becomes complete.

    What we find ourselves witnessing are the final strokes being added to a depiction of the rule of tyranny being born from the death throes of the last vestiges of the peoples power to control their own destiny by means of a just electoral process.

    Those who feel no outrage for the contemptuous acts being exerted by the dictatorial political factions, as well as those being asserted by the National Media as they dare insinuate that it is they and they alone that are anointed the rightful privilege to dictate who we are allowed to consider worthy of our nations highest office, are not worthy of the honor to be called Americans.

    They instead are deserving of their rightful place upon the gallows reserved for all deemed to be traitors to our republic, if deemed so by We the People.

  4. Thank you so much for writing this article and for helping to enlighten those who don’t understand Ron Paul and what he stands for. He stands on principal and truth. He is not a politician that can be “bought and sold.” He is the only candidiate that can lead us in the right direction. I’ve prayed to God about Ron Paul, and I have received spiritual messages that he is the best and only candidate that we can vote for. I feel strongly that if we don’t elect Ron Paul in 2012 then our country is surely doomed. Please write Dr. Paul in if he does not get the GOP nomination. Together, we can get our country headed in the right direction. God bless!!
