"Why is patriotism thought to be blind loyalty to the government and the politicians who run it, rather than loyalty to the principles of liberty and support for the people? Real patriotism is a willingness to challenge the government when it’s wrong."
Dr. Ron Paul
(1935-) American physician, US Congressman (R-TX), US Presidential candidate

    Real patriotism is not blind, eternal vigilance, is 24 / 7, as the awakening of the Core to take care of their own. Such is our watch 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Knowing the state of each individual 24 / 7. guarding our liberty and Freedom, the Constitution. Go Ron Paul ! I will stand strong, and not fear what man may do, But trust the God of nature to give me strength in due season, as we stand watch. Simper Fi.

    Ron received my vote in the last two republican presidential primaries.

    Impeach the man, The current administration and all branches, call the Core to guard the door, and require the OATH to be taken again by all those on the hill, remove all lobbyist from the room.! Then support the Constitution of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, return the yoke of taxes to the corporate world, from off the freeborn to strangers. Bring our troops home to protect the home land, and their families, before,( he) strands you away from your home.! This is not a joke to be taken lightly, by those that can still pay their bills !!
