I've been a little down of late, with the poor results in New Hampshire and the latest smear attempts with regards to the old newsletters, but tonight's debate was a truly inspiring performance by Ron Paul. Here's my comment on his performance over at LewRockwell:
Lew, I think it was when the silly moderator tried to take Paul out of the substantive debate by harping on his de minimis following by 911 truthers. He forcefully but politely asked to be included in the actual debate, to which he was, where he performed masterfully. Also, I think the doctor deserves credit for keeping up the good fight for peace and freedom. Unlike the others on that stage, who are there seeking power for their own personal glory, Paul is not there for himself, but the cause. I'm sure there are times, especially when the smear artists are in full effect, that he would like to go home and spend his time with his noble family. But Paul keeps on going. He keeps advancing the argument and instructing the ignorant in the face of laughter and ridicule; in spite of his own self-acknowledged faults. While he may not even realize it himself, he's teaching us libertarians, both cosmopolitan and provincial, how to act with courage, fortitude, and dignity. So in short, what we are currently witnessing by Ron Paul in his struggle to keep on in the face of adversity and seemingly insurmountable odds, is his finest moment.
Here is blessing reminder for Ron Paul: "Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called children of God."
And a blessing to all libertarians and the Ron Paul Revolution: "Blessed are they that hunger and thirst for justice: for they will be satisfied."
