Today, the grassroots are making the effort to keeping Ron Paul as a major contender. Martin Luther King day marks a third in a series of Money Bomb days for Congressman Paul.
The days as they stand in order have been and are:
Guy Fawkes Day
Boston Tea Party Anniversary
Martin Luther King Day
All three are days marking revolutions for freedom from the tyranny of Government. Now – I don’t think that Ron Paul wants us to model revolution based on the first two.
1) Guy Fawkes planned to blow up the British parliament. (Violence and the destruction of property do not match Paul’s philosophy).
2) The Boston Tea Party protested taxes by the destruction of private property – a big no-no for libertarians.
But Martin Luther King Day is different!
Martin Luther King was a champion of civil disobedience and non-violent protest/resistance. THIS is part and parcel of Ron Paul’s philosophy – what cannot be worked out on the government level though statesmanship, can be worked out on the grassroots level through demonstration – if necessary, through non-violent protest.
