Ron Paul Lives in the rEVOLutionaries

The thing that has been striking me lately is that Ron Paul's campaign has been making big things happen... without the help of Ron Paul or his employees. We are the ones making this happen. This November Fifth was the biggest thing to hit an election that was not organized by the campaign itself.

What I need to say is that Ron Paul lives inside each and every one of us. We are the rEVOLutionaries. I feel like we put so much of our effort, making our own signs, making our own campaign literature, organizing our own events to promote Ron Paul, because we feel like that as Ron Paul runs for president, we are also running. As a supporter, it feels like he taps into something inside of me that makes me feel like the man running and that is why I put forth the work I do.

This must mean that Ron Paul punches supporters with his views on issues right into our hearts and we feel so strongly about him and his views that feel like if he loses, we lose our liberty. And this seems to be the case with many Ron Paul supporters I have talked to. We put forth our own time and effort because we all realize that Ron Paul was an underdog, we realize that he needs the support we give him, and most of all we realize that we will lose what the United States were founded on if we do not convince others that Ron Paul is a true presidential candidate.

I have seen many different events organized solely on that of different MeetUp groups or with just a group of friends who convert others to Ron Paul to help them. I have seen and heard of many cases where Ron Paul supporters show up to rallies for other candidates to try to convert others to Ron Paul. These are things that you might expect a campaign to do, but we do this voluntarily. Ron Paul does not have to contact his supporters to get them to do something to help him, we find out what needs to be done and we do it for him so he can spend more time on the campaign trail doing what needs to be done.

We are, as rEVOLutionaries, the body of Ron Paul. Ron Paul is not like other candidates that have supporters just because their supporters feel there is just no one else better to vote for so they might as well vote for them. Ron Paul supporters actually feel strongly about his views. We feel strongly about our candidate, so strongly that we donate and donate and donate our hard-earned money so that we can feel a stability in our future with a Ron Paul presidency. We work and work and work for Ron Paul so that we can feel safe that our military is out of harms way, our friends and family being out of the war zone. And we give much of our time convincing others and converting others to Ron Paul. We spend hours on the Internet talking about Ron Paul with others because we feel strongly enough that we can carry on hours of conversation about Ron Paul. No other campaign can have thousands of supporters just sitting around and talking about them for hours except Ron Paul.

We come to Ron Paul's aid when he needs it. We will drop everything for our candidate. If Ron Paul is insulted, we responded by the masses to criticize those who insult him, we gather by the masses to show our support and get Ron Paul in the news when others are dismissing him as a serious candidate. If Ron Paul needs us, we are there.

We are the best supporters in all of politics. We are the ideal supporter who is supporting because they feel strongly for a candidate, not because the candidate is a popular choice. We are the most determined in all of politics. We will fight for our liberty and country no matter what it takes. We are all people of different gender, age, and race united under the principle that our country was founded. We are people who would never even speak that have been brought together by Ron Paul. We are a nation united from East to West. We do this through Ron Paul, with Ron Paul, and for Ron Paul.
We make the Revolution happen. We are the Ron Paul Revolutionaries. And we will never forget.

Mukasey Sworn in As Attorney General

Michael Mukasey was sworn in as the attorney general today by President Bush. He says he plans to be independent. He seems like he should have been the right man for the job long ago. With 18 years of experience, he is known as a fair judge while he served on the bench after being appointed by President Reagan. He is praised for making the right calls in key cases involving terrorism. He has also been the Chief Judge of the Federal Court system.

Mukasey is known for his toughness on national security cases, especially terrorism, while still being fair. He remained tough on those in the trial of 1995 for the 1993 planned terrorist attack on New York City by sentencing the two main defendants to life in prison. He also maintained that the government could hold Jose Padillas without charging him. He did, however, allow Padillas to meet with his lawyers, which is required to have a fair trial.

Mukasey is the right man for this job. He is a tough judge that won't budge on things that the Constitution says to charge for. He makes sure the punishments are severe enough to make the point of the trial worth it. He also is an acception to what most of us are used to, government corruption. He has allowed fair trials to his cases by allowing the defendants to meet with lawyers and give them a fair trial with an unbiased view. He doesn't let his views get in the way of true justice and that is what makes him a good judge. A judge must remain open to the trial and allow a fair trial without letting personals get in the way of another person's future. Mukasey allows this. He is the right man for this job with his expertise, experience, and fairness in law.
