“Ron Paul is Insane! Why do you Support Him?”

       This morning, I saw a comment on Facebook that I vehemently disagreed with. The inflammatory comment was dually projected towards Congressman Paul and his suppporters. The poster, of said comment, states…

“Anyone who agrees with Ron Paul needs psychological therapy, like shock treatment.”

       I’m not ashamed to admit I’m  100% supportive of Congressman Paul and his bid for the 2012 nomination to be P.O.T.U.S. The idea that we live in a modern day USA whereby standing on sound principle, ideas, and conviction is frowned upon, yet mob mentality peer pressure is acceptable as an alternative, tells me plenty about the state of our union.

       This is especially disturbing when the ideas presented have been proven to work and the current way we progressively do things grows us further from prosperity and independence that many died for; fighting to break free from the oppression and tyranny parliament placed upon the colonists. The true definition of insanity is repeating the same activity, yet expecting a different result. Shock therapy? No thank you. I think I’ll try a new method [Ron Paul] to break free from the insanity of choosing between the lesser of two evils.

       I generally enjoyed many of the things Newt, Santorum, and yes, even Romney had to say last night. (Especially Newt) However, I understand enough to know its primarily all for shock value and entertainment. Newt and others will speak a good game and get some applause, but would never dare perilously walk a strong walk on principle to do what is generally right. That’s politics. I loved much of what Obama had to say on some matters in ’08’ as well, and he has played the typical role of politician. Say one thing while campaigning, do the opposite and worse when power is amassed. This is what happens when you sell out for the almighty $.

       On national television last night, congressman Paul came out and admitted he doesn’t consort with lobbyist, thereby letting it be known to all who were listening he is not now, nor has he ever been for sale. His campaign is supported by real people who don’t want to take over and control everyones lives, for whatever reason they wish to do so.

       Nope, I’m not signing up for shock therapy anytime soon.  Congressman Paul leads with a strong sense of integrity, intelligence, and knowledge. He has walked the tough walk for over 30 years privately and publicly, even though he knew his ideas would marginalize him from others within his own ranks and afar. He has consistently done what was right, following just laws protected by the U.S. Constitution; given to us from our Creator. The problem with most of us today is many don’t  understand what it means to truly be free. We were born in the ages whereby wealthy bankers had already compromised the sovereignty of our nation.  It is often said that when we know better, we do better. It’s too bad hardly anyone reads and studies history these days. If we did, we wouldn’t continue electing figure heads into office on local, state, and federal levels.

My mental faculties are well intact.  When opposition resorts to name calling without 1st exercising a sound argument based on logic and facts, you shall then know you’re on the right side of an equation.

I ask tough direct questions to many, not just about Ron Paul, but in general, and they can never answer me with any real sense of reason because the media hasn’t told them what to say or think next.
