A little contribution from Italians4RonPaul…
“When an idea unites and stirs the soul…”
Paul's friends in New York.
To all of these people: THANKS
Carol Paul with a young friend. Family in Chicago.
For all those who invested hours and hours of their time and talent into creating all kinds of tools to promote Ron, such as audio, video, written work, merchandising, gigantic banners next to interstates, as well as things we can find on YouTube, DailyPaul, Facebook, TheCaseForRonPaul, MySpace, RonPaulGraphs and innumerable others… THANKS.
Countless activities have sprouted from the brains of individuals, and one of the first which we linked to our blog is a real nutty and precious one. I am referring to the three courageous grannies from the US and A who decided to be “born-again” as “Granny Warriors”. They bought an RV, painted a huge flag on it, covered it in RP Revolution graphs and decals and are, as we speak, busy cruising the country. They meet paulestinians and any and all citizens willing to hear them out on why they adore the good old doctor, be it at Ron Paul rallies or NASCAR races. Blessed with an above average dose of courage, good health and superhuman stamina they impress people all over the place with their passion for Ron and their charming manners. THANK YOU, and a DEEP and RESPECTFUL BOW of ADMIRATION and RESPECT.
Finally, there are three people in particular I would like to thank, the Three Musketeers shall we say.
First off, Michael Nystrom, a.k.a. Athos, a man whom I dedicated a paragraph in the Italian version of this article, but who needs no introduction here. A simple thank you for your time and energy invested in creating and maintaining a wonderful temple for civilized discussion on life, politics and Ron Paul. THANK YOU ENORMOUSLY.
Michael Nystrom and Ron Paul.
Dulcis in fundo, I would like to extend praise to another person, Lawrence Lepard, a.k.a. Porthos, who disbursed 85 000 of his hard-earned US dollars to pay for a one page RP ad on the USA Today of 21 November, the most widely circulated US daily. AN EMOTIONAL THANK YOU.
When I look at and listen to Ron, my heart pounds fiercely in my chest, and his genuine smile and tender voice give me the feeling that all will be fine, and that in front of me I have a person I can count on, “for better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and health” (sorry Carol, I know you have the monopoly on this phrase… but just for literary sake!). Also, as a politician, a person who might be able to cure the sickness that has creeped into a portion of domestic and foreign policies, both in the US and beyond. I was not sure if my tears of happiness made me some sort of a (political) outcast, until I recently found a thread here on DailyPaul solely dedicated to this topic. You cannot imagine my relief in finding that all kinds of servicemen and women with years of combat experience confessed tender little tears of joy, non-desperate housewives, grannies and grandpas of Ron’s age alike, and 23-year-old guys like myself who haven’t seen, excuse my French, shit in their lives. We all feel something is about to happen, we do not know what, we just wish it to be a little touch of heaven on earth, and we know that Ron Paul is the man with the plan, as well that he needs ALL of our efforts, no matter how tiny we might think they are, to make it work.
Voila`, Ron’s little mystery. Who else, among the many current political leaders, who else, in the current disenchantment with politics, has the charisma not to evoke fanaticism, but tears of joy in persons from all over the worlds and with an infinite variety of backgrounds?

P.S. The authors and webmaster of the blog are 3 italians who are uncurable Ron Paul freaks who love politics and life in general and would love to see a US under a brilliant President who has the audacity, the vision, the consistency, and the humility of a Ron Paul. We promote Ron at every occasion we have to people of all nationalities and walks of life and notice that, after angry and confused reactions at first, people often open up and truly, madly, deeply (as the song goes…) open up. I am sure US Paul supporters experience something similar.
Viva Ron Paul! If you are Italian, know Italian and/or have Italian friends please visit our blog as well and drop us a line, we would be extremely thankful. Please find the Italian version of the article with pictures on our blog.
