Why are like 99% of Ron Paul supporters super attractive?

johnnygoldwater:

preposterocitypersonified:

I wore my Ron Paul t-shirt and sweatshirt today and like 20 super cute guys approached me about it.

Also where are all the lady Ron Paul supporters not a single girl at my school mentioned or seemed to notice my shirt.

*It’s because we know we’re awesome. -JG

My sister met a lady, who was also at the Ron Paul campaign meetup the other day.
I really wasn’t expecting it, but she was beautiful.
We aren’t. There’s gotta be some fat white trash thrown in the mix. DIVERSITY.

Tylerites for Ron Paul

A little group I accidentally stumbled upon on Meetup.com.

Except they turned out to not be small at all.

Anyway, we had a campaign meetup at the Jalapeno Tree tonight. First impression was that it was packed. The second impression was that was a shitload of Ron Paul shirts.
First we had Gubernatorial candidate Debra Medina speak. She spoke a really long time but it was information on delegate training, how to be a delegate, how to get people to vote, and precincts. So it was important information.
David Simpson, who ya’ll might know as the man who tried to take on the TSA in the Texas senate last year, was there as well. He gave us pocket constitutions from Campaign for Liberty. I’m all about free things(so we have brochures, cards about Pauls stances, a “Support the Troops - Bring them Home!” bumper sticker, a Ron Paul 2012 bumper sticker). He then spoke as well. I approached him afterwards, since he was just standing around smiling while everyone was mingling and it seemed odd no one was talking to him. I said it was exciting to meet him, and I heard about him during the whole TSA thing last year. He said hopefully we’ll get it passed this year. He then commented that he liked my Murray Rothbard shirt. It’s always fun to see politicians knowing of anarchists. I can’t remember too much of what he said, because my memory stinks. But he mentioned something along the lines of people needing to tell their warmongering evangelical brothers that you don’t win converts at the point of a gun. I’m not christian, but I find that awfully close to my mothers point of view, and how she holds that Ron Paul holds the most christian values of any of the candidates.

A little surprising was that we had people close to Paul show up. (Maybe not too surprising, since this is East Texas and therefore not too far from where they likely live)

Wayne Paul was there, Ron Pauls brother. He spoke a little. I tried to take footage but as it turns out, my phone doesn’t actually record sound. Which was splendid to find out. Then a nurse who used to work for Ron Paul, and helped him in his first ever campaign for Congress.

It’s interesting, isn’t it? That you could just be a normal working person and possibly, in your future, your boss might be running for President? Or your sibling?

People were very enthusiastic. Considering the area, it’s not surprising it was mostly older folk. There were some college-aged kids like me around, but we were way in the minority. Also, adorable babies.

But actually being part of a grassroots campaign and seeing the excitement everyone has for liberty, kind of pulls me out of the slight slump I’ve been feeling about Dr. Pauls chances. People really do care, and they really are willing to put forth the effort.

Texans, it’s worth something to look into Debra Medina and see if her stances are right for you. I don’t know if she will, but she might run for Governor again. She’ll probably run for something. Any from between Lindale and Longview, it’s worth it to keep Simpson in office.

Cherry Picked Criticism…

mattatattat:

Ron Paul’s detractors, especially here on Tumblr, are so quick to denounce the man’s ideas and principles based on a few words (tonight it’s “violent act” when talking about his views as an OBGYN on abortion)…

The man spoke about cutting the size / influence of government, returning back to sound monitory policies, bringing the troops home, and other issues…and some want to cherry pick two words and claim they can’t support him.

It reminds me of the conversations I’ve had with Obama supporters who tout him as a “great” president. They bring up health care reform, the economy (WTF???), and OBL when praising him…yet ignoring the fact that he’s expanded the wars, increased defense spending, increased the size of government, expanded unconstitutional legislation aimed to destroy civil liberties and much, much more.

It get’s me every time…

“Now many Americans can’t even conceive of other countries believing the United States to be a threat. And yet, ours is the only government that will travel to far distant lands to overthrow governments, station troops, and drop bombs on people. The United States is the only country to have ever used nuclear weapons against people. And we are surprised that many people in the world regard the United States as a threat?”  - Ron Paul

Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long. By Ron Paul (via laliberty)
