How To Support Ron Paul (Display It!)
James E. Miller
by James E. Miller: Why
Ron Paul Is Dominating
A friend of
mine sent me the above picture the other day. This driver's
support of Congressman Ron Paul's run for the presidency shows a
passion unmatched by the proponents of opposing candidates.
Can you imagine a Chevy Suburban decked out in "Herman Cain for
President" memorabilia? How about a Toyota Prius with a "4
More Years of Obama" sticker that takes up the whole of the rear
window? Yet somehow the above sight is not out of the ordinary
when considering the dedicated base of supporters the Texas Congressman
of course comes from Paul's steadfast belief and record of promoting
liberty. While other presidential candidates pathetically slip on
their own words defending their less-than-consistent records, Paul's
integrity is without question. The media doesn’t understand
this; it wants to be the gatekeeper of determining who "viable"
candidates are. This is why Paul is hated and continues to
be marginalized at every chance.
So what steps
should lovers of liberty take in promoting the only candidate willing
to tell the truth no matter the cost? Load up their vehicle
with bumper stickers of course! Sure, this tactic is obvious
judging by left over "Obama/Biden 2008" stickers still dotting the
cars of now disillusioned supporters of a president who is both
of Wall Street and whose foreign policy makes
George Bush look like a pacifist. But the placing of just
one "Ron Paul 2012" bumper sticker holds larger implications than
informing the tail-gaiter behind you whom you support for chief
the repressive policies of totalitarian governments have been
countered through artistic renderings of resistant slogans and
mottos. Many times, such rebellion involves the use of graffiti.
The same concept applies to state-controlled media which is used
to focus national discussion on the status quo only. Dictators,
whose lust for power mimics sociopathy,
must discourage all forms of dissent to legitimize their control.
Earlier in the summer, graffiti denouncing North Korean leader,
playboy, Kim Jong Il appeared
on a wall Pyongyang Railroad College. The message simply
stated, "Park Chung Hee and Kim Jong Il are both dictators; Park
Chung Hee a dictator who developed his country’s economy, Kim Jong
Il a dictator who starved people to death." Needless to say,
it resulted in a rigorous investigation to uncover the culprit.
fans take heed, in order to counter a political and media apparatus
so entrenched in corruption that it goes to great lengths demonizing
a candidate who holds the only respectable view on Constitutionalism,
we must display our support proudly. Not only do "Ron Paul
2012" stickers represent the establishment's biggest fear that the
Texas Congressman has a large base of support, they relay an even
more important message: it's okay to support Ron Paul. And
that is exactly what the general public needs to see. Despite
how much the mainstream media distorts Paul's views, we must let
our fellow citizens know that they are not alone in wishing that
a man can be elected president who truly wants to rein in the criminal
Federal Reserve System, the parasitic military industrial complex,
and the dependency creating welfare state.
we are not alone in our endeavors; a simple Google
search for "Ron Paul 2012" bumper stickers yields half a million
results. And don't forget the wonderful LRC
Store and its fine selection of stickers. With
the first Republican primary election fast
approaching in Iowa, now is the time to show your support.
Fight the state!
Buy a bumper sticker!
