Something happened in Washington D.C. this last Saturday, July 12th, that was very significant. Unfortunately the mainstream media didn’t seem to think so. Have you seen anything anywhere reporting on the Revolution March? If you have been to my blog before, you may have noticed a link in my blogroll to it. The Revolution March was a rally to support restoration of Constitutional government as originally founded. It was organized by Ron Paul’s supporters and thousands showed up on Saturday. There should have been many more there, but I have a feeling gas prices effected attendance. That is what it was for me. I had to decide between my cousin’s wedding in August or this and I decided on the wedding. But I was there in heart.
Pastor Chuck Baldwin who is the Constitution Party’s candidate for President introduced Ron Paul. Before leaving the stage, he promised to do two things right off the bat if he wins the presidency: 1) Agents Campion and Ramos walk out of jail and 2) George Bush’s New World Order comes crashing down. Then the crowd screamed “Freedom” as Paul took the stage. It reminded me of the end of the movie Braveheart, which has always resounded to me.
Ron Paul covered most of the same material he always does, but also added in comments about the $300 billion dollar bail out of housing and the stimulus checks as things that won’t work. As the news has already reported, most stimulus checks have been spent in the discount stores on necessities. That doesn’t seem like much of a stimulus to me. (And don’t get me started on Obama’s idea to send out another check.) The key part of Paul’s speech came towards the end when he said, “The magnificent thing over the past year and a half has been the rallies, the people coming together because what I have found, and I see it all the time, is the message of liberty and the Constitution it brings us together regardless of our personal beliefs.” That is so true.
Now the new project for “freedom fighters” is to get supporters to Minneapolis on Sept. 2nd. Paul doesn’t want to disrupt the Republican Convention, he just wants to be more exciting so the press will want to cover him instead. With McCain being the competition, that shouldn’t be too hard. McCain can put sloths to sleep. For more information check out: http://www.campaignforliberty.com/
