It took a lot of guts for him to champion that cause before it was cool.

Agreed. Ron was ahead of his time.

Ron was who woke me up. After I learned the truth about the fed everything else made sense.

Summer 2007. I passed the airport one day and saw a blimp that said WhoIsRonPaul.org or something. My life was never the same after that.

The Ron Paul rEVOLution ❤

he pointed me to Chalmers Johnson's books in the mid 2000's. Blowback is a classic

Have to look into those.

Michael Crichton was my first (low dose) redpill. "State of fear" made me realize what a joke the climate hoax is. It's fiction, but his fiction is like a doctoral thesis in novel form... You learn a lot while being entertained.

Not saying he was perfect, but yeah. Read his books if you get the chance...

I waited in line for a signed copy of his book when he was in NYC in 2008-ish for his book tour.

I told everyone at work I had an important doctor’s appointment, and needed to leave for the rest of the afternoon.

I mean, it wasn’t a lie - Dr. Ron Paul is the most important doctor I know 😆

Hopefully he gets to light the match, he deserves it

Ron Paul is the type of man that I will make sure is a house hold name for my future grandchildren. We are all blessed to live in the same time as him.

I was a huge champion on Ron Paul going back to 2004 or whatever it was, before he initially ran. The years following opened my eyes to the media and what was really happening. I just wanted pot to be legal to start it all off. Trump was the first Republican I ever voted for.

I was a Ron Paul. Early 20s trying to figure my way through the murky water. Ron Paul brought me unto libertarianism. Which ideologically I thought was the way. And maybe it is if we had a moral populous. But liberty is only good with morality. Liberty is only a catalyst to destruction with a degenerate, stupid, amoral people. We need to stop tolerating evil. But we must actively push back !

I was actually Libertarian first, then discovered Ron Paul.

For me, libertarian is a direction. The direction of ever dispersing power and not allowing it to consolidate, or else, you have what we have today, what Trump is fighting.

The issue I take with what you said, is that in order to achieve the goal of more morality, you have to consolidate and increase the power structure. It’s the opposite direction from the power is within the individual.

I agree with you, on the ground, in reality. Of course, real me doesn’t. If these degenerates didn’t have the power they have then it wouldn’t be so much an issue for you, I think. Had we listened and started dismantling those power structure, their degenerate ways wouldn’t be as much concern.

I agree with you. All I am saying is use the current system to destroy the system.

The biggest thing that got me so determined to read everything Ron Paul said was seeing the media (mostly 'right wing' Fox News) act so crazy about how 'nothing was happening' when it was FUCKING HAPPENING. Like.. Ron Paul gets 3rd in a straw poll so they show.. 1 and 2 only.. or he gets 2nd.. so they show just first place..

It made me realize how scripted the news was.. and I always was skeptical of the news before that - but didn't think it was as evil as it is.

Wow, I remember being peripherally impressed by how strong people felt about him. And he seemed very genuine to me if unrealistic about what could ever really be. I was still thinking pretty conventionally. My wake up call didn't really happen though until the FISA abuse stuff. I couldn't understand how the April 2017 court order finding rampant spying and third party access to the database wasn't big news. I thought there had to be at least one reporter out there who would want to get the Pulitzer Prize! for doggedly going after the truth.

Then I saw people talking about "Q" in the comments section at Conservative Treehouse (the only outlet providing any real analysis of the FISA abuse situation with links to actual source material), stumbled onto a CTBS Reddit forum, and then proceeded to fall fast down a succession of rabbit holes. God willing, I suspect 5 years from now I will look back on 2022 the same way.

CavePeasant 12 points ago +12 / -0

Agreed. He is who woke me up to politics. The first legit person I wanted to support and really caught my attention. I purchased his book and everything. I think he may have won back in 2008 if it wasn’t for Dem cheating.

DarQ2light 10 points ago +10 / -0

Even if he gives up his material body before it happens he'll get a better view from where he's going.

HelloDolly [S] 4 points ago +4 / -0

True dat. Maybe better to say I want him to live to see it so I get to live to see him see it LOL.

DarQ2light 2 points ago +2 / -0

LOL perfect

JFK Jr. as well. 🤫

peterbeater 8 points ago +8 / -0

He deserves it, frankly. We don't deserve him. The man is a saint— he warned us all, even back when times were good and no one who wasn't labeled as "crazy" even thought there could be fuckery afoot. Ahead of his time. End the Fed. Shrink government. Disband the alphabets. Not "now", "yesterday." Heck, Ron Paul might have literally been one of my very first redpills, in hindsight.

I just hope I live long enough to see the hammer fall on the traitors in high office.

I am having my doubts but by mid November I should have a better idea.

Wtf_socialismreally 8 points ago +8 / -0

End the fed

Which one?


MAGA124 8 points ago +8 / -0

Romney did him real dirty in the 2012 primaries. I hope Ron Paul gets to see this bastard go to prison.

HelloDolly [S] 6 points ago +6 / -0

That would be good too.

Kunkussion 7 points ago +7 / -0

I appreciated that Trump mentioned Ron Paul at his speech in TX. I know he has great respect for him. It was a nod to the anons that awoken then, which was the majority of the movement that has brought us to here. Many got split off into more left leaning stuff and kinda abandoned their principles, but most stayed tried and true, especially those who were from the old days.

Liberty Defined is my most loaned book. And it always will be.

He is the real GOAT 2008 awake!

SJBHamilton 3 points ago +3 / -0

I hope WE ALL do ! But Ron Paul deserves to be vindicated and live to see it.

Ron Paul's campaign is the ONLY campaign I've ever walked door to door for to distribute literature.

I was bummed when he went Open Borders though.

...we need a hipster Ron Paul meme...
