With his concrete plans to cut government waste and audit the Federal Reserve Bank,didn't seem destined to lead a freedom movement. With a goal to cut $1 trillion in spending during his first year by eliminating five Cabinet departments (Commerce, Energy, HUD, Interior, and Education) as Commander-in-Chief, it didn't look possible on paper. Nor did any of his plans to abolish the TSA, end corporate subsidies, stop foreign wars and aid, look like something that may catch on. But catch on it did!
Dr. Paul's message set both young and old ablaze with a new spirit and vision of a bright future that surely will not die out anytime soon--no matter how hard the establishment tries to smother the flames. Speaking of a white heat, Ron Paul's crusade may rise BIG this Saturday in Nebraska when his revolution could take its fifth state (according to the mainstream media) or his seventh state (according to his supporters) by gathering the majority of delegates in Grand Island. Which will truly be a day of victory for the Campaign for Liberty movement and could cause even a stronger wildfire going into Tampa.
It is getting a bit humid in the GOP camps just thinking about what could transpire in the Cornhusker state. Feeling all hot and bothered, Jordan McGrain, Nebraska GOP Executive Director, communicated that he has actually hired security (first time ever) for the July 14 convention. The proactive McGrain hopes to ensure the safety of all the delegate hopefuls in the Reason.com article with a headline that sums up the event: The Ron Paul War Over Nebraska Delegates: Paul's Last Stand with the GOP?and Ron Paul arena, since it has been reported shouting matches and a bit of police action took place that was, well, quite out-of-control, to put it lightly, according to a
But, really does Ron Paul need to wait to become president to make a difference? I personally believe that Ron Paul is an American hero who will go down in the history books. One day we'll be telling our children's children about this great man, who incidently is busy working on a plan to get a vote in the House to audit the Federal Reserve. What a day that will be for the American people, with mouths dropped open, to wake up to the realities of our immoral, dishonest and unconstitutional central bank that prints money out of thin air. It is not a dream, there is corruption all around this country which is the very reason we are living in such dismal economic times.
We don't need to be doomsday preppers who fill our pantries with food that will last us for years because we don't know what tomorrow brings; we don't need to arm ourselves to keep our families safe from looting and danger that could come if times get tougher, do we? No need to only keep our eyes on Nebraska, America--lets open our eyes, ears, and minds to what is going on all around us every day. Don't say, "I hate politics." Learn, grow, and do something. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results. Who can we vote for that will fit that definition? Obamaney? No more insanity! Lets be a part of restoring America, a chance to be a part of the solution. May we choose wisely, may we get busy-- may we choose freedom, America!
