Ron Paul's principles didn't need to evolve over generations of advocating liberty; the liberty movement evolved from Dr. Paul's principles. From 1979 to 2013, Congress was aghast at Paul's decency, consistency, and Texas-sized cajones. All of Washington, DC, couldn't understand how he could speak truth to power and continue to be insouciantly elected, year after year, flouting all the BS with a humble smile. And normally he couldn't. Let's be straight about that. If it weren't for the fact that as an OBGYN, he personally delivered most of the constituents in his 14th Texas congressional district or someone in their family, well it might be a different story.
But more than that, good old Dr. Paul has always told the truth. Like it or not. He was there to deliver the bad news, but with the sort of bedside manner anyone in a tough spot appreciates and remembers. And in a place like Washington, if you start telling the truth all the time, well the word will get out. Boy did he make the best enemies.
So, join the club. Pay homage to this one-of-a-kind gentleman of freedom. You might be surprised at how many people will be smiling and giving you a thumbs up every time you sip from this one.
