I supported Ron Paul, twice. The key word here? Supported. I’ve always been an “Actions speak louder than words,” “show me, don’t tell me” kind of guy. Always. I may like what you say, but I don’t put belief into your words. Your actions show me what you really believe and, in my opinion, provide me a great prediction of your future actions.
When I supported Ron Paul, I supported his words. He truly separates himself from the pack of other politicians by answering questions directly, bringing appropriate priority to fiscal issues, and approaching government with a limited Federal role. You would think I would be donating time to the campaign. One point, I thought about it. But, actions speak louder than words. And Ron Paul just wouldn’t leave me alone.
He (through the campaign for liberty), called me. He called me again. He called me again. Despite my many, many, MANY requests to not be called, Ron Paul’s campaign for liberty didn’t care. The best way to show me you believe in government not harassing its people is to stop harassing me. I finally got the calls to stop with a certified, return-receipt letter and a threat of legal action.
