I woke up early today... 3am...confronted with all the evils the world has to offer. The IRS, the corrupt government, Eugenics, chemical contamination, fractional central banking and so on. And for some reason I ended up watching America: Freedom to Fascism. A movie I had seen several times years ago but seeing it again, it refreshed many of the ideas that drove me to dedicate myself to the Ron Paul Revolution 5 years ago.
At times since I've had my doubts and I spent a great deal of time soul searching and researching information looking for answers to some of life's questions and what I could do to change the direction our world is headed. I've made some great sacrifices to keep my sanity and stay true to my own principles... Sometimes looking at the world and many of the situations and suffering that goes unnoticed... it seemed rather bleak.
Over the years, many have contributed to my ongoing enlightenment and further education... But today, it was a bit of a coming together that really got my attention... lifted my spirits and gave me some real joy.
The thought for the day which was recited by Mimi: Lifter or Leaner
“There are two kinds of people on earth today;
Just two kinds of people, no more, I say.
Not the sinner and saint, for it’s well understood
That the good are half-bad and the bad half-good.
Not the rich and the poor, for to rate a man’s wealth,
You must first know the state of his conscience and health.
Not the humble and the proud, for in life’s little span,
Who puts on vain airs, is not counted a man.
Not the happy and sad, for the swift flying years
Bring each man his laughter and each man his tears.
No; the two kinds of people on earth I mean,
Are the people who lift and the people who lean.
Wherever you go, you will find the earth’s masses,
Are always divided in just these two classes.
And oddly enough, you will find too, I ween,
There’s only one lifter to twenty who lean.
In which class are you? Are you easing the load,
Of overtaxed lifters, who toil down the road?
Or are you a leaner, who lets others share
Your portion of labor, and worry and care?”
— Which Are You? by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
I had heard this before... but the second time was the charm... It hit me with a burst of joy and a flash of a brilliant light bulb turning on inside my head.
Another presenter, Steve, pointed out how a moment of a movie changed his fortune... and then Bob, mentioned a movie... "My Man Godfrey" which I watched... It revealed a message I've been trying to identify for years...
Although it's a bit of a sad ending, it gave me a boost! Reiterating... I am a lifter! Regardless of my position and situation...
And then another epiphany... a good man, can make a difference! Ron Paul, jumped from 12% to 20% in South Carolina poll... on a message of liberty and freedom! The message is starting to catch fire! And this message has the potential to go worldwide! Ron Paul is certainly a heroic figure... watching him navigate all the corporate propaganda media and their hidden agendas and slightly masked ill will towards him... he still remains calm, cool and collected.... even friendly. It must really get under their skin! But it's certainly inspiring to see... the little problems we face pale in comparison to the machinery posed against him. Ron Paul is the modern Spartacus....
Today, the sky is bluer, the air is fresher, people are friendlier, life is sweeter and I have a genuine thirst for and belief that we could be seeing a better future... together! Vive le Revolution!!!
