I just finished watching an awesome documentary called For Liberty which details the surge of the Ron Paul Revolution back in 2007/2008. It brought back many great memories and made me psyched about the upcoming 2012 election cycle. The documentary starts with the early 2007 GOP presidential debates in which Ron Paul made a name for himself and then culminates in his giant Rally for the Republic counter-convention in St. Paul, Minnesota which gathered more than 15,000 supporters in August, 2008.
Coincidentally, I noticed that my wife and I had a brief cameo in the film because we traveled to Minnesota for the Rally for the Republic and we were right outside the Target Center when the Freedom Walkers arrived. I posted a screen capture from the documentary pointing myself out at the 1:45:52 mark. My one second of fame! FYI, I was wearing my “Legalize the Constitution, Ron Paul 2008” t-shirt.
For those who supported Ron Paul in the past, this is a definite must see as it will reignite the passion that you experienced in 2008 and get your adrenaline pumping to go out and all do it again this next election cycle. Those who don’t support Ron Paul or don’t know who he is, this is a great primer to see what the revolution is all about and how it is unlike any other phenomenon tapped by a presidential candidate in the past. Some may wonder or question how such a revolution began, and this video will show them. There was a passion for liberty in each one of us, and Ron Paul was just the messenger that set it on fire and brought it out. As such, it is not centered around one man, nor will it end after Ron Paul’s campaigns end. It’s a spontaneous and decentralized force that will continue to burn until the country is set free. Let’s go out and continue the revolution and keep fighting to get Ron Paul and many other liberty candidates elected in 2012!
