The Revolution March - Live Coverage

July 12th, 2008 by Michael Nystrom

Last night was just like Tom said - A magical evening, seeing Dr. Paul walk down the humid, bustling streets of Georgetown, filled with party revelers. The crowd was abuzz as we made our way through: “Hey, that guy looks just like Ron Paul!”, “I think that was Ron Paul!”, “It is! It’s Ron Paul!”

Yes, it absolutely was Ron Paul, kind, humble and patient as ever, stopping to chat, take pictures and answer a few foreign policy questions to boot. If you’re bummed that you didn’t make it out here to DC for the Revolution March and rally, the good news is that Revolution Broadcasting is carrying live coverage of the event all day. And if you haven’t done so already, I suggest you start making your plans for the Rally for the Republic in Minnesota on September 1-2. That is really going to be a big one.

RF: I realize now that i havent spoken out enough about this. For every question of responsibility i raise, for every outrage i point out, every injustice i claim must be righted, there is one member of this rapidly growing national group of action trying to force that responsibility back to a government that shirks it, tries to force the people to acknowledge that outrage and right that injustice. This group has formed out of the ashes of "freedom candidate" Ron Paul's presidential campaign, the campaign that raised more money that any other candidate, had more military support, and had more signs hanging from freeways than any other campaign. We may not have, now, a presidential candidate who believes freedom and personal responsibility are the property of the people, and not the state, to be metered out at the will of executive orders and congressional selective service acts, but those same people who rallied to support a presidential policy of a free and sovereign economy and a non terroristic foreign policy consisting of non-intervention and existing without occupation, have not given up.

They say they will not give up, and I for one will join them in saying that this Amerika is not the America of The People's will, and that the people will reshape it, or quit to support it. Americans inherit from their ancestors a glorious tradition of freedom and resistance to oppression. Our country has long been admired by the rest of the world for her great example of liberty and prosperity – a light shining in the darkness of tyranny. Today, many Americans are frustrated, bloodied by wars and made poor through the largest tax levy ever forced upon them. We must not give up that resistance to Tyranny, we Must rediscover Freedom and Liberty, for without them, we are forever lost to that dark dark world from which we may never escape without the light those two principles provide. We must turn from an autocracy in which we would be no worse off than if we didnt vote at all, and find a system where the votes of a million would be tyrants will not cancel and take away the vote or opinion, or liberty of one free man.

These good people are asking you to Rally for the Republic and to save our country from continuing down a road that as I see it can only lead to bankruptcy, an end to national sovereignty, a complete end to democratic power, never ending war, a police state with a complete end to civil liberties and the continued marginalization and possible eradication of the people, as a government runs amok, trying to save itself by standing on the bodies of its people. These may sound like dire predictions, but they reflect the many parallels in history, and many warning signs in the present.

Fortunately, we have another historical parallel we can look to, one that turned this very situation around, and created the strongest nation in the world. A nation with profound power, and profound freedom, born on the back of a Revolution. As the t-shirt reads: "The Answer to 1984 is 1776." Ron Paul thinks we can still save this country, now, with a peaceful, but dramatic revolution, a turn around, while we still have that power, while we can still organize, and while we can still be heard, one, and all. I hope he is right, and I ask you to help him, to become involved, because an America without Freedom is an America without a Soul, we must rediscover the light that once made us great. We Must Campaign For Liberty.

Thank you, and you will find a banner both to the side and at the bottom of this page, join us
