But more importantly, I sometimes wonder if he is meant to give hope (Hope = substitute for political action) to the Internet Intelligentsia, of which Gimmers would be a part of. If there was no Ron Paul what would we be doing? Wouldn’t we be giving up on the system to which he has loyally served for decades? Wouldn’t we be searching for alternatives, more desperate for alternatives, whether within ourselves, or likeminded folk, public or private? Does he keep people like you and me believing, albeit ever so half-heartedly, that there is hope in the system, when many of us left to our own resources would not believe such. Is his purpose to keep potential ‘troublemakers’ calm and passive in front of the tv WATCHING the Jon Stewarts and then discussing the shows, talking about ratings, blah, blah talking head juniors, instead of creatively thinking, coming together with different ideas and taking risks in community action? In the last half year or so, I’ve felt that we need, not to "take back our country" like you hear many say, but forget it, we need a New Country, Pilgrims once again, leaving the globalists/tribalists behind. What makes these fantasies go bye-bye? Why, hope of a Ron Paul getting elected!..
If he’s meant to channel and keep the intelligence, brainstorming, and energy of folks like me and you contained within the paradyme, could it be working?
