Ron Paul brought the house down last night at the Texas History Museum in Austin, Texas. The huge museum thundered with applause from a thousand people, which lasted for nearly five minutes as he walked through the crowd toward the stage to deliver his speech.
Never in my life have I have seen anything like what I witnessed last night. He had a professional photography session for everyone to have individual photos taken with him. His speech was riveting. He committed himself to protecting individual liberties and rights first and foremost and ensuring transparent and limited government. He outlined his fiscal policy very clearly concerning how he would protect the elderly and health care programs while bringing our troops back to protect our borders and even begin to bring the deficit under control all at the same time by simply changing foreign policy. Everything he said made total sense and is the message that America needs.
There were large showings of people representing Libertarians, Republicans, and Democrats as well. His message rings true with the entire political spectrum. He spoke of how touched he was that he had so much support from so many people across the nation. Until the campaign began, he had not realized just how many people have been on his side for so long. He said he hadn’t realized just how powerful a tool of free speech that the internet was, but he sure knows now. The crowd roared with laughter and applause.
But it was what happened after his speech that gave me one of the most beautiful memories that I will never forget in my life. Ron Paul took the time to talk to anyone and everyone that wanted to spend time with him. The crowd was literally thronging him, yet it was the most peaceful scene. As he made his way slowly from the stage to the front door, a process which took well over an hour, he shook hands with people, listened to their words of encouragement and gratitude, took business cards, gave autographs, answered questions, recorded announcements for radio networks, took more pictures with people, it just went on and on. It was so touching it moved me to tears. Anything that anyone wanted from him, he gave it to them. His wife was doing the same thing. I got to speak to them both for awhile. They are the most down to earth, genuine, caring people you will ever meet. Anyone could tell that this was a sincere display of care for the people and not some politician giving out phony handshakes and a plastic smile with lip service just to get votes.
When I say the man and his family are for real, they ARE. He proved to me last night that he truly is committed to protecting individual liberty and freedom because he treated everyone in that crowd last night as individuals. He did not just address us as a group. He cared for each person as an individual and spent time with each person after his speech.
Ron Paul showed me how a president is supposed to relate to the people. He showed me that he’s just one of us, like your next door neighbor or a good friend. He doesn’t put himself above anyone at all. Ron Paul treats people as equals and engages in conversation with them. His wife Carol is the same way. We were talking, laughing, joking, she was giving me and my friends hugs, it felt like I’d known her for years, like she was part of my family.
I feel certain that Ron Paul will do as he says he will and I believe he will even open the White House again to the public. And why shouldn’t he? It’s the peoples’ White House anyway. It’s a historical museum and part of the history of our country. I toured the White House with my parents when I was a child. We need to give that experience to our future generations.
We need to do everything we can to spread the word and get this man into office. There is no one else like him. No one even comes close. He is a true patriot and someone who really cares for the people of this country. Everyone who takes the time to listen to him cannot help but love the man. Thank you Ron Paul, for everything you’re giving to us. We are going to push you all the way into the White House.
