While my cohort may think it's funny to bag on the esteemed Dr. Paul for cheap hits, let's look at an awesome example of campaigning done right.
How do you get thousands of degenerate college students who believe in crazy ideas like legalized drugs and small government to clean up? Send them out on the Ron Paul campaign trail:
“No tats,” another volunteer, Rocco Lucente, said as he ticked off the rules after arriving at the airport Tuesday night. No liquor, no drugs and, he said, no “fraternizing in the dorms, nothing like that.”
Mr. Lucente, a 19-year-old from Ithaca who is a sophomore at Alfred University, said the Republican Party had been hijacked by a “social conservative war party” that had lost sight of the “idea that the government should be out of the way,” one of Mr. Paul’s abiding principles.
Mr. Lucente’s ride from the airport — along with two dozen others who arrived the same time — was on a Partridge Family-style school bus painted red, white and blue and festooned with slogans like “Pro Gun Ownership,” “Pro Homeschool,” “No Lobby $” and “Our Liberties We Prize and Our Rights We Will Maintain.”
Amen to that, brother. Just think, if more 19 year olds got it like Mr. Lucente gets it, we might not be so doomed after all.
