The Republican primary in Texas is upon us and we are down to two people; Mitt Romney and Ron Paul. I haven’t made a choice
on who I will be voting for in the upcoming primary in Texas. I haven’t really seen much about Ron Paul in the media and a
few friends have sent me some very informative links that talk about the Ron Paul revolution.
The Tea Pary Express came to Austin today and I decided to see and hear what Ron Paul and a few other had to say. I met
some very nice people who are working for candidates who are running for Congress and they were all willing to talk about
their desire to help make a change for 2012. When the time came for the speeches to start I was prepared to listen and give
an open and uninterrupted attention to the people who were going to talk.
However, during the start of the speeches, I saw this:
Listen, I am all for the right to free speech and the guy holding this sign has a God-given right to do so. However, as I
have stated in the past and will continue to do in the future, there are times to be smart about expressing your views
about our President.
Do I approve with what the President has done? No. Do I think that the policies he has pushed hurt our rights and our
economy? Absolutely. However, we need to express our frustrations about the President in a manner that will not bring
negative attention to our Party. We need to discuss our views in a manner that will not cause others to think negatively of
beliefs and turn them off to what we have to say.
I remember back when The Tea Party started. We would see negative images of the President and other members of Congress
appear all over the internet and media. The Tea Party members got smart and had people put down their negative images so
that the true message of the Tea Party was properly expressed. This is not helping our cause.
