Ron Paul 2012 Liberty Rider by grimdrifter Ron Paul 2012 Liberty Rider by grimdrifter
My first attempt to capture the inspiration of the liberty movement in the USA.

This is a painting of Ron Paul as Paul Revere, riding through the country, proclaiming R3volution is Coming!

Ron Paul is a 12 term congressman from Texas who is running for president in 2012.

Ron Paul wont win.... Its as if america wants all these problems.
the people wanted obama they got him, they are offered a chance to fix their problems with Ron Paul running and they blew their chance.
If america wants this as a future then let them have it.

We americans really are stupid.

do you know how our politicial system works?
we use a voting system called electoral college and the people dont actually vote

we put in our input and it goes to delegates. they then decide if they agree with what the ballots say and if theychoose to do so they can change the whole states vote with impunity

a mass majority probably are voting for ron paul but the delegates know that he would probably change up the system for them so they couldntick who they want for president

we need to use an alternative voting style so the actual majority votes for president not the largest minority like we have it now

Agreed. I already have plans on the table to move to Australia. It's rated number 3 on the economic freedom scale (America is number 10). The point is, it's going to get rough in America when the dollar finally collapses. At that point, it will be too late for most Americans to wake up and admit what they knew all along, that Ron Paul was right.

While moving to another country may be the smart thing to do my family and I shall remain here.
My grandfather has prepared for that sort of thing and has a abundance of non perishable food, water, resources, and guns(all legaL WITH PERMITS). logically speaking we wont need to use any of them except in the worse case scenario but its good to be prepared.
We wont run, no matter what happens we'll live through it.

Yeah, I don't think food will end up being a problem. As bad as things get, food might only ever be a problem in major cities that are far away from farm land. I live in California, in the Sacramento valley, so food is pretty close to where I am. I am most concerned really, for my sons, who, though they are toddlers now, may face some form of conscription when they turn 18 if things don't improve. People say the US will never return to the draft, but there are some lawmakers who are considering it, and often desperate governments turn to war to distract their citizens from serious internal problems. No, I don't think a dollar collapse necessarily has to obliterate our economy, but it's Uncle Sam's regulatory measures that will do the most harm. Every stop-gag measure Uncle Sam enacts to "stave off disaster" will make it only worse.

This is so awesome! Ron Paul stands for the preservation of our liberties founded in the Constitution, and I would go to Hell and back to see his dream and consequently, the dreams of his followers come true! Let the Revolution thrive!

And I love the expression. So determined and ready to go! Again, fantastic piece of art!

This picture was originally meant to be done by July 4th, but I kind of let that deadline get away from me.

Anyways, this is how I really see Congressman Paul, he is determined, gaining momentum, and his ultimate goal is to bring a message and change a cultural mindset.
