"What if..." a speech about America

I'm just taking a small step away from the ranch updates today and am posting this speech written by my 16 year old brother (all on his own, by the way). It truly is worth your time. Please take the time to read it.


What if you lived in a country that was established on basic personal liberty and freedoms. And hundreds of years ago our fathers fought to their death for that country to be freed from their oppressors.
What if they warned us of a government not guided by individual freedom and rights to liberty and told us how to avoid being enslaved by such a government.
What if over the generations we slowly strayed from those instructions and now you realize how far from those rules our government has taken us.
What if you realize you are being deceived by what is called common sense and you recognize that it is not evil to want your freedoms back.
What if you realize tyrannical rulers are taking your money and only returning with more regulations on you and your countrymen.
What if they printed paper and told us gold is not money.
What if you realize that you have sacrificed your liberty for security and now you deserve neither.
What if the people of this country have tried to convince themselves that killing their children is somehow morally correct.
What if your leaders are truly supporting the murder of these helpless children and then they try to persuade you to support them.
What if some of those rulers claim to be pro-life and then attempt to justify voting for the funding of murder.
What if your president is lawless and has broken his oath, yet for some reason he is not being held accountable for his actions.
What if we as a nation spend money we do not have bringing down rulers of other countries because they oppress their people and then you realize that your rulers are not far from the same.
What if you are told that this is the way it must be and that our fore fathers were mistaken and did not understand how to keep this country free.
What if we as a country wake from our sleep and put an end to the cries of helpless babies being murdered by the thousands with no one to save them.
What if we wake and stop the killing of our soldiers in unending and worthless wars and we bring them home to protect this country that is called the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave.
What if it is time to rise, be brave and not slumber to confront the tyranny and murder being forced upon us.

Time to stand between the dead and the living.
Time to say enough to the slaughter of precious little lives. Enough war. Enough greed. Enough oppression.
Enough stripping of our liberties.

Do you realize all these "what if's" are actually truly what is going on around you?
For too long we have not heeded what our founders warned us of, they warned that "All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent".
Neither have we heeded the words that "Commerce with all nations, alliance with none, should be our motto."

It is time to change this lawless government.
And now we are told that the only choices we have are men that sometimes say good things but their actions prove they support the murder of children, that they fear a free and armed people, they are greedy, support big corporations and bigger government and they do not follow their own laws which makes them lawless.

Yet, there is one man who stands out from the rest. He thinks outside of the political "box", so much so that they think he is crazy.
Is it wrong to promote following the constitution?
Is it wrong to believe in peace?
Is it wrong to advocate putting an end to nation building and policing the world?
Is it wrong to speak out for the poor and needy?
Is it wrong to say that any candidate but Ron Paul will pull this country further down the drain?

It is time for the Ron Paul revolution. It is time to finally have a leader that understands and promotes peace, prosperity and freedom.
