Danny de Gracia knocks it out of the park in his brilliant, penetrating, wise, and breathtakingly articulate Washington Times Communities article, “Ron Paul and Gary Johnson’s Supporters are Not a ‘Non-Factor’ in This Election.”
This is one of the most important messages needed in America today.
A few choice excerpts:
“No scholar or expert can have a serious discussion in this country anymore because the agenda setting power rests with people who refuse to accept rebuke from the very people – now awake – that in prior elections were lulled into voting for charlatans in gray suits and maroon ties…”
“No one can talk about real issues anymore because hyperbole and innuendo are now preferable to salt and light. Any attempt to address America’s debt crisis, her costly and losing commitment to meaningless military engagements abroad and the collapse of our government institutions at home is met with elitist sneers, ridicule and contempt. We are told that others, smarter and more competent know better than us and that we should simply know our place and vote for left or right…”
“Contrary to what you have been told, a third party vote isn’t a vote for Barack Obama or Mitt Romney. It’s a vote for a future that though delayed today cannot be denied tomorrow if enough people have the faith to pursue it. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Faith calls those things which are not as though they are until they are. And in this election, there are those of us who will choose the third choice because we choose to believe in an America so much better than what we’ve been offered by the two party system…”
But as I’ve written, this perspective only makes sense and carries power when you understand the fight for freedom to be a 100-year war, rather than an election-cycle battle.
Slowly but surely, it is Independents with a depth and breadth of education and a commitment to freedom — not the Republican or Democratic parties — who will restore America.
